Soffitta is accessible via stairs to the second floor above Va Bene, and has an ADA compliant restroom.
We can provide a variety of dinner music in Soffitta. You are also welcome to bring in your iPhone or smartphone to play music from your personal collection. No dancing or loud music is permitted as a private residence is located adjacent to Soffitta.

The décor in Soffitta is an upscale/casual dining space. Should you need specific decorations (e.g. flowers, linens), please coordinate directly with Mary Kay when you book the event. Additional charges for linens, etc. may apply. Please let Mary Kay know when you are booking the event the specific time you wish to arrive to start decorating as we may have other parties that day
All food and beverage must be prepared on-site by Va Bene Caffe. A $2 per person cutting and serving fee is charged if you wish to bring in your own cake or dessert. The dessert must be store purchased. A $20 corkage fee per bottle is charged if you wish to bring your own wine.
Mary Kay will work with you to create a menu tailored specifically to your needs. You may select items from our regular Va Bene Berarducci’s Caffe menu or from a variety of specialty dishes we have served at events in Va Bene. Menus must be planned and finalized one (1) week in advance of your event. Mary Kay will also plan your specific dessert needs and pricing from her wide selection of desserts.

Cancellations will only be accepted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your credit card also serves as insurance for any broken items, professional cleaning, etc. as a result of your party. Any damages are the responsibility of the person/company booking the party and will be charged to the Credit Card on file. To ensure quality service for you and your guests, all food and non-alcoholic beverages will be on one check.
