Italian cuisine is our speciality. Our kitchen is a medley of recipes from Piemonte, Marche and Campania. We use free range and organic ingredients, Italian where available to keep the flavors as authentic as possible. Did we mention all our menu is gluten free?  Amaranto is not a classic food truck nor just a catering. Our vintage caravan is a fully equipped kitchen on wheels: we cook our pasta at the moment, no matter what the location or the type of event. We can set up almost anywhere, as long as there is a flat spot and enough space for us to manouver the truck in position.We can provide different services, from a classic Italian long lunch with multiple courses to a food truck style with an Italian street food service and the option to choose between a sit down meal with sharing platter or pick up the food from the truck. We can also set up an antipasto table and desserts. We are available for travel between Auckland and Whangarei.


Cocktail hour is a magical time, you have just tied the not and your guests are ready to mingle and enjoy the party! The drinks are flowing, your guests are relaxed and our Italian canapés are just perfect to start, either walked around by runnners or set up on an atipasto table. Often cocktail hour coincide with photo time for the bride and groom, let us know if you would like us to create a picknick basket for you to enjoy while away so you don’t miss out!


For your wedding dinner we can offer you a couple of delicious plates of pasta, salads and meat mains. You choose the dishes and the style of service, we can carry on with the cocktail style and have the pasta walked around by waiters in trays or you can opt for a relaxed market service style where your guests come to the truck at their own pace. Family style, seated with sharing plates is also a gret options or buffet style if your time is limited. Please keep in mind that our pasta dishes are cooked at the moment so discuss with us timings before setting up your schedule for the day. 


There is nothing better than a good dessert to finish off a great party. We offer tiramisù, panna cotta and chocolate&hazelnuts mousse. Pick one or mix them up!


All of our disposable plates and cutlery is compostable and kind to the envoirement, but we are also happy to work with your hired crockery and cutlery. We can also suggest a few awesome vendors where you can hire these from.
If you are opting for a family style dinner, we have sharing sharing platters, pasta bowls, salad bowls and serveware for hire.

A huge thak you to Luisa and Tommaso for the beautiful day and delicious canapés. We didn’t get to try them all but we had so many comments, and even a couple of query from some of our guests. This was definetely a highlight of our day


Thank you so much for catering our wedding! We had nothing but rave reviews from all our guests, they absolutely loved your pasta!


Luisa and Tommaso you made our reception so special and we can’t describe how much we loved having you there. I had complete peace of mind not having to worry about my allergy at all, while still having delicious food. Honestly my brother in law didn’t even realise the pasta was gluten free until he saw me eating it and thought wow what?! He thought it tasted too good to be gluten free! Also my mum keeps saying that you made the BEST salad she’s ever had. Choosing Amaranto to cater our weding was the first thing we decided on for our wedding planning and goodness was the best decision we made! You were also so lovely to communicate with and made everything easy for us (except that there were soooo many delicious options to choose from).

Thank you!

Johanna and Richard

Amazing food! Amaranto catered for our wedding along with another food truck and they created the most fabulous table of plenty at our wedding which had all the guests talking about how good the food was.

Thank you so much, we can’t wait to visit your truck again.
