About Us

Mary Ann (Arini) Mauriello was raised by Sicilian-born parents, whose passion was cooking, eating and spending family time in the kitchen. To this day, her mother Pina (age 89) still cooks and contributes new ideas and recipes from her family back in Italy and Sicily. Because of the family passion for sharing food, her parents Pino and Pina (short for Guiseppino and Guiseppina), brother Tony, Mary Ann and her children Laura and Joe, started a restaurant in 1993 called Pino’s Place Trattoria in Castle Rock, Colorado. For ten years they provided a local place with that true authentic Italian touch, where many were able to appreciate the family’s love for sharing their passion for food, love and laughter.

Mary Ann wishes to continue this legacy through her catering. Not your typical catering company….everything is made with the heart and soul. From 4-40 people, we can deliver lunches to your workplace, dinners to your home, prepare dinner at your home while your guests watch and learn….let’s be creative! Victoria West, a long-time employee of Pino’s Place and mentored by Pina herself is a big part of the catering. A certified chef, Victoria studied cooking in Italy and brings her special talent to every table.

“At the table…..no one grows old” an Italian proverb
