Dear Jennifer,

"Just wanted to let you know how very pleased we were with your gracious hospitality and how much we enjoyed every minute of our daughter's wedding. You & your brother made us feel very welcome, and very much at home. Our friends and relatives have not stopped raving about the delicious entrees and all the other mouth-watering additions to the "feast" you put before us. Your staff should be highly commended, the service was exceptional and their attentiveness to our guests was well noted by all.

Thank you again for a beautiful evening. Hopefully, we will see you again soon for another special occasion"

Dear Tom,

"I just want to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for making my 50th surprise party a memorable day.

Not only was the food excellent, but so was the service. Your staff was courteous and attended to my guests in a very professional, and polite manner.

Thank you for a beautiful day"

Dear Jennifer,

"I just wanted to thank you again for all the hospitality shown us on our June 10th wedding.

The service was excellent & the food was fantastic! The Venetian table was a thing of beauty; something to marvel at! (my compliments to you & everyone on your staff).

All in All -- A 5 Star Event"

Dear Tom,

"I'm sure you know how critical Italian-Americans can be when it comes to food and cooking, because most of them consider themselves "experts" in the field.

Well, you have achieved the impossible. With a room full of these "experts," there was not a single negative comment to be heard during the dinner-dance or after it.

Everything I heard was extremely complimentary. Comments about the quality and quantity of the hor d'oeuvres and the gracious way in which they were served, was followed by the tremendously well-received choice of soup course of pastaefagoli or escarole and beans. The event went up hill with the following courses of manicotti, salad and the choice of chicken francaise or prime rib of beef.

Tom, you and your staff -- more than anything our committee could ever do collectively, made our 6th annual Columbus Ball a resounding success. Your courtesies and considerations in pricing, and that personal "Apicella Touch" helped not only make it an enjoyable evening for both Belleville and Nutley Italian-Americans, but also contributed considerably to our fund-raising efforts.

You and your family are truly good citizens of Belleville. Your love for the township and its people is evidenced in your life's work. May I extend to you on behalf of our dinner-dance co-chairpersons, Ann Brave & Camille Nazziola, and the entire committee, our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation"
