Let us help you make the perfect meal!
IPDA started working on sets serving crews during second meals. Later it gained consideration for pre-light and scouting lunches and following, regular lunches on shoot days. The Panini Ladies have always fully supported independent film productions and student projects developing a special relationship with AFI (American Film Institute), LA Film School together with several other private and independent associations. The main company objective is to provide a great meal access to filming crews working on any kind of production budget.
I Panini di Ambra created an healthy and affordable catering menu to support simple lunches, second meals, background actors meals, courtesy meals, private parties, and lunch meetings. "Panini" are competitive in prices and will provide a healthy, tasty and warm choice of meal. Items listed on the menu and prices reflect side orders that complement either panini meals or each other when selected as a variety. Please contact us for an estimate when interested in a single item. Each "panini" is cut in two to give people opportunity to try more than a flavor. We usually offer between four and five different types of original Italian style panini, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.
What do we need for panini cooked at your location? Three to four 6 ft tables and 2 to 4 separated power lines to provide you with a tasty hot panini meal! You do not have power? For smaller meals we can bring our generator and for larger ones we can offer hot meals that do not require any power and can be transported hot.
