Without hesitation I would absolutely recommend Amici Catering. Our guest spoke high regards about Amici Catering for weeks/months after the wedding. Possitive comments about the kindness and aptitude of the staff along with compliments on the quality of the food were very... Read More common. We couldn't be happier. This the high rating in this review.

Amazing staff! They went above and beyond and would recommend them in a heartbeat. I had Kiki as the captain and he certainly made the night amazing.

It was hard to find a caterer that really fit our budget, but gave us the same great quality dinner and Amici's was a perfect find! We don't live in the area and they made sure to work with us when it came to setting up a tasting and getting everything we needed. The office...

Omg, i have received like 20 emails offering services. I requested to stop and have sent the mail to junk and they started sending emails from another mail. Generally vendors that intense before events are so uncareful when you really need them.

Amici's did a great job taking care of every need. Their organization, responsiveness and overall capabilities made us completely comfortable leading into our wedding day. We did a Mardi Gras themed wedding so they were able to suggest some spins on dishes to bring a cajun... Read More vibe.

Amici's did a wonderful job catering my wedding. Leading up to the day, they were very responsive, easily contacted, and overall had great customer service. The food we tried at our complementary tasting was delicious, and the atmosphere was wonderful - it was private, and made... Read More us feel valued. However, the day of the wedding is where they REALLY shone. We had Diana for our banquet captain, and she was FABULOUS. Very thoughtful, acoomodating, and complimentary. While my bridal party was having pictures done during cocktail hour, she brought us hors d'oeuvres and water so that we wouldn't get too hungry or thirsty (it was very hot out). Overall the entire staff was just really considerate and you could easily see that they wanted to make our wedding special. And the food! I had so many compliments from my guests about how good the food was!!! They were VERY reasonably priced, but honestly you wouldn't guess it from eating the food. It was delicious, and they definitely were able to work with me to find something to satisfy my husband's picky appetite. Overall, HIGHLY recommend!

Amici's was overall a perfect caterer. The food was great, they were extremely responsive and willing to make menu changes, and they were a great value. We received many compliments on the food, we were initially concerned about hiring outside catering for fear of the food being... Read More dry or overcooked but the fish, chicken and beef were all cooked perfectly and our guests loved the butter roses served. The setup was immaculate and they were quick to make changes to the set up before the reception began. Also, the servers were great and made sure that we had everything that we needed. I would definitely recommend Amici's to anyone getting married in the area.

We are heading to our honeymoon but I had to drop a review to show how thankful I am. Since our very first interaction with Amici's, they've been nothing but professional. They had a free "date night" tasting for potential brides (and family) that was exquisite. We chose the...

Not to mention that they arrived on time, provided the best customer service, and created NO DRAMA. I will recommend them to everyone.

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. Amici's is full of incredible people, and I'm sure that they deal with a lot of unnecessary grief. They... Read More were the third caterer we tried, and was 1000x more delicious and inventive than the other two. I started making their Feta/Watermelon/Mint cubes for weeks after we visited. I wish we had tried the Falafel fritters though, because they were not traditional falafel. We may have gone in a different direction with that choice if we had known. Not a big deal though. Anyway, they may be slightly pricier than some other caterers, but I'm certain they're worth it based on their attention to detail. Do not hesitate to go to a tasting and book them!

The food was amazing, but let's face it, that's not what makes a catering company THE BEST. I planned the entire wedding practically on my own, and every step of the way, the communication was very open and we were always on the same page. They make it very easy, when equipped...

Amici's was amazing. Everything we tried at the tasting was incredible and we had a hard time deciding cause we wanted everything. The food at the wedding was just as perfect. The staff in the office (Sylvia and Susan) are just outstanding. You cant ask for easier people... Read More to work with. Not only did they make this process stress-free and easy they even helped with other items like suggesting the perfect bakery. The onsite staff was incredible. They were visible when we needed them but otherwise I didn't even see them running the buffet and cleaning(the last thing you want is catering staff getting in the way of the party.) KeKe our captain knew exactly what to do and needed pretty much nothing from our team as the office staff had prepared everything in advance so perfectly. Based on everything I would without a doubt recommend Amici's to anyone who asks. They are outstanding. We will be certainly using them for other events in the future. Thanks for making our special day so perfect.
