We had to host a party for 22 people and had Oliva Wood fired pizza cater the event. The appetizers, salad, pizzas and home made breads were fresh and very tasteful Would like to recommend this caterer to everybody. It's a delicious option for a great evening and it's something different to have a wood fired oven at the house to see them prepare the pizza. And the leftovers are even better... Muchísimas gracias a Nico"
"Amazing flavor and enjoyed each and every bite! I've tried all the pizza creations and you really can't go wrong with any of them! The pizza crust, cheese and sauce are so fresh!I highly recommend any flavors of the wood fired pizza!"
"I cannot decide what is best, the pizza or the owner! A wonderful guy who is passionate about his product! You can really tell once you try the pizza! Everything is handmade, fresh, and POPS with amazing flavor! You have not had a pizza until you try it here! The owner was engaging and explained each process with incredible knowledge and detail! I will definitely get all of my pizzas here again! OHH and please try the pork pizza with bacon marmalade! Top 5 things I have eaten in my life no kidding!"
"This was the best catering experience I have had. Nico was very dependable and punctual from the beginning...professional in every way. Having the pizza oven set up for our party, prepared and cooked on site and served made for a fun and unique party. All of our guests loved it and the pizza is some of the best I have had in Houston. I would recommend Nico and Oliva Pizza any time!"
"Great party Nico. Definitely a winner.
Lots of compliments on the pizza. The Porky and the s'mores pizzas were completely awesome!"
"Nico, it could not have been better! Thank you so much for everything, and I look forward to eating your pizzas again soon!"
"Wow... I can't say enough about how great it was to have Nico come out to our party this past weekend. First, the pizza was fantastic... proper pizza Napoletana, great ingredients, fresh from the oven. Our guests could not stop talking about it and saying it was a great idea. We're already planning to use Nico for the next family birthday party. Thank you!!!"
"Your pizza is excellent! Please open a storefront location!!! Houston is now complete with your awesome pizza! Thank you!!!"
"Someone to recommend! Nicolas Barengo and his "Oliva Wood-Fired Pizza" crew.
We recently threw a party for 40 people at our own house. The guests were from many different parts of the world (Italy, Germany, Spain, Ireland, France, India) and the US as well. The party was a true success. The Oliva Wood-Fired Pizza" crew arrived in time and they set up their oven and cooking table in my back-yard in a very neat way. Their waiters were extremely polite, quick and smooth. They even had a waiter with a license to serve alcohol (which we needed) who made sure everyone's cup was full all the time. Their chef (Nicolas Barengo) was very approachable and seemed to truly enjoy answering the guests' questions about his pizzas. But the very best was, of course, their pizzas!! To the point that our Italian guests were happily surprised. The dough was just perfect, and the different combinations of toppings were just unique. Another plus was that the chef was quite flexible when we discussed the toppings before the party and his suggestions ended up being outstanding"
In summary, great food and exceptional service.
"Okay everyone, I wanted to give a big shoutout to Oliva's Woodfired Pizza. They catered a party for 100 guests at my house on Friday, and they did a fantastic job! Nicolas Barengo and his group came to the house with the Pizza Oven, and setup a beautiful serving buffet (including a cute chalkboard that listed the pizzas being served and what was on them). It was like our own outdoor pizza cafe! They also served all of the appetizers, which were so good (the crostini trio, zucchini rolls and hummus were especially delicious!). I found his information on this site under the Files, and booked him based on all the reviews and comments. I wanted you all to know that it exceeded my expectations. Thanks Nico"
"Nico catered my son's high school graduation party yesterday, and he was a hit! Everyone raved about how delicious the pizza was, and his vegetable appetizers were so fresh. I am a salad lover, and Nico made delicious Greek salad per my special request. I had several servings of it!
We had 5 different kinds of pizza, so there was something for everyone and we had guests spanning ages 2-72. The pear pizza was especially unique and yummy. Nico was awesome to work with, and even though rain was imminent, he was prepared and not worried. All of his staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was cleaned promptly after the party so we were able to relax. Many of my friends plan to use Nico in the near future for their events as they were thoroughly impressed. So if you want something unique and crowd friendly, hire Nico." Marissa CL
"We had Oliva cater a wedding shower last night and they were amazing! Our guests faved about the pizzas (each one was delicious!) and the set up was so easy for us as the hosts. They did everything. Such nice little touches like the chalkboard menu and pizza namecards. Nico even came to my house before the event to plan the set up. Very reasonably priced as well. I will highly recommend Oliva to anyone who will listen" Christine R.
"Pizza and service is amazing. Nicholas Barengo did everything he could to make sure we were happy" Zahra S.
"Oliva hosted at my apartment community. I never heard of them prior to the event, but I have to say I was extremely pleased with the service, quickness and above all, product! I will certainly request them again!!!" Amber O
A good friend of mine got married and had a backyard wedding. These guys catered it for approximately 100 ppl and did an incredible job. Everyone got fed, there was always pizza out and most importantly the pizza was absolutely phenomenal. People running it were lovely authentic Italians and very nice. I would recommend them to anyone for any reason! Joel M
We had Oliva Pizza for our backyard wedding and it was such a HIT!!! Nico and his staff made the party and we are still getting texts from guests asking where to find him next & that he has the BEST pizza in town! The only draw back was everyone wish they would have eaten more pizza!!! Thank Nico (and staff) for all your hard work, dedication to amazing ingredients, phenomenal creations, and superb service. We couldn't have pulled off our backyard wedding without! And Josh thanks you for his future large gate - hahaha. He is so excited about it! Christy N.
Nico and his crew catered a party at our home for 75 patrons of a performing arts organization and it was a spectacular success. We chose to have Oliva cater the party based in large part on their customer reviews, and they exceeded our expectations on every count. The pizzas themselves were the stars of the party. Nico makes traditional Neapolitan pizzas that are unique and delicious, and inventive without being weird. It was really gratifying to feel the buzz in the crown when the pizzas starting coming out.

Oliva wood fired pizzas catered my wedding of 175 on 10/22/2016 and it was absolutely perfect! The pizzas were so delicious and cooked in a very time effective manner. I got so many compliments on the food. Who doesn't love great pizza?! Nico was so nice, easy to work with, and very responsive to emails. His team was great too! They even cut my cake for me! I honestly can't wait to throw another party for them to cater! Would recommend to anyone! Thank you so much, Nico!! Laura B.
Nico catered a couples shower I hosted this past weekend and he did an amazing job. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was outstanding. I thought the servers he brought with him were extremely professional and polite. I could not have picked a better caterer. Everyone is still talking about the food and the appetizers. Now I just need to think of another party to have so I can use Nico and Oliva Wood Fired Pizza again! Thank you Nico!! Tamara B.
Thank you so much for catering our wedding. Everything was so wonderful and the pizza was delicious! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect time. You were such a pleasure to work with. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone who needs catering. Thank you again!! Shannon A.
Nico catered an event for me last weekend and did a fantastic job. The pizza was phenomenal (I was a little nervous because I did not sample it before)! Even the attendees from New York raved that the pizza was as good as that back home. Nico was professional and made sure the entire night flowed perfectly. His team set up in front of my town home and hauled pizzas upstairs all evening. Even though they were constantly bringing pizzas in because they were getting devoured so quickly, Nico an his team never interrupted the party. I will definitely use them again. Excellent service, price and flavor! Cara V.
