Amici's is an amazing catering service! I would recommend them to any bride and groom getting married. From booking my tasting with them to the end of my wedding night they made me feel as if I was the only bride they were working with. The staff made sure I was informed of... Read More everything, and made it super easy for my husband and I. On the night of our wedding reception the banquet captain and the staff made sure we were fully hydrated and fed at all moments and time. They really take good care of you on you big day and make it even more special.

Amici's was such a wonderful caterer to work with. From the initial quote to final execution, the staff was so nice and detail oriented. The food tasting went very well - we loved everything we tried and their menu is so extensive - it was hard to narrow it down to pick the...

The week before our wedding, Amici's sent over a finalization sheet. There were so many details on there to confirm, I didn't even think about worrying that they didn't know what they were doing. It was very clear they wanted to make sure they knew everything about my expectations and that they wanted the event to go smoothly. During the event, the staff was very pleasant and attentive.

We used Amici's for our wedding. They're exceptional, and made sure we ate! They do so much more than simply providing good food, they work a lot with design and logistics.
