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 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.
Amicis catering did an amazing job at our wedding! We received SO many compliments throughout the night about how great the food was. We opted for plated salads and buffet and the salad was HUGE and so delicious! The servers were super attentive and brought us our food and checked in on us to make sure we were always okay and had what we needed. Working with Amicis beforehand was also very pleasant, they were very attentive and were timely with communication. Their pricing is super affordable especially for the quality and taste that you get. Highly recommend!
The catering team was amazing! From the sales staff to the individuals on site at our wedding. Everyone was so helpful and nice, they took the stress out of planning our wedding and even on the “big day”. The food was excellent, presentation just beautiful, and all experience was a 10+. I would highly recommend this company.
From the day we walked into Amici's we were blown away! We were looking for a caterer for our wedding and Amici's was such an easy decision. The staff is TOP NOTCH, professional, courteous and really made our guests feel like they were being catered to. The food is wonderful and the staff is the best around. I highly recommend using Amici's and I look forward to using them for future events.
Amicis is absolutely the best. We really wanted pizza at our wedding and they did a pizza station for us. The pasta bar was spectacular as well. The staff was outstanding and everyone was raving about the food. Everything the delicious. We loved everything about our experience with them!
So glad we chose Amici's to cater our daughter's wedding reception - the service and food was exceptional!! Great staff to work with.
Amici's went ABOVE and BEYOND for our wedding day. We had the pasta bar, and it surpassed our expectations. Our guests were blown away by how amazing and fresh the food was, and how awesome of an experience it was to be able to "create" their own pasta dish essentially. Their staff was wonderful, and even brought myself and Will a plate of cocktail hour items for us to nibble on during pictures. Their food was delicious, and was even better than when we had our taste testing! They provided beautiful decorations that went perfectly with our theme. They were so responsive from the day we booked them all the way up until the day before the wedding. They listened to every request we had and did a fantastic job of incorporating everything we had in mind. I highly recommend the pasta bar! We were so please with how everything turned out!
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 menu, but more options is better than no options! And their prices were super affordable compared to the few other quotes we got. 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 chose a plated meal, coffee station and dessert table. The presentation was beautiful and everything was delicious. I would recommend using Amici's for any event.
I found Amici's through The Knot and they were the first catering company I looked at. I live two hours away from the Tampa area so I only met with them in person once, but they were so easy to work with and truly catered around our two hour distance. They communicated with my family and me via telephone and e-mail and were very professional and prompt. The choices in food were so difficult to narrow down options as there were so many wonderful options. The food was delicious and my guests enjoyed it as well. I highly recommend Amici's!
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 staff is incredibly nice and very responsive and helpful. The actual service at our wedding was amazing. The wait staff was very nice and went above and beyond to make everything run smoothly. We did buffet style, and had plenty of food and got so many compliments on the food.
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.
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.
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 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 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!
Excellent food quality, service, and I would highly recommend them and use them again in the future
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 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 pasta bar as the main course and it was complemented by our guests all night as "the best pasta [they've] ever had". Not to mention that they arrived on time, provided the best customer service, and created NO DRAMA. I will recommend them to everyone.
Amici's made the process painless. They knew exactly what we had in mind when we discussed the vision for our wedding catering. The food was excellent and the service was top notch!
Amichi's did an amazing job at our wedding. Our guests raved about the food and service. The Amichi's crew was professional and friendly. We had heavy appetizers, buffet and pasta bar. We had gluten free, vegetarian and carnivore options. Every menu item was spot on and delicious. There was plenty of food, no waiting, hot food was hot and cold was cold. The pasta bar manned by Kiki was a huge hit. He was amazing, friendly, kept the guest moving and the pasta selection was above our exceptions. Delicious!! We cannot express how grateful we are to the entire crew for being a shining star on our most special day.
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 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!
This was the first venue on our list of six to try. Kathy Wilson at Kapok Special Events recommended it to us. The food was PHENOMENAL! We booked them immediately and canceled all of our other tastings. The staff is just as amazing! They are so on top of everything! They even made sure that we got to eat and that we got what we wanted. They were on top of refills and were so helpful in letting us know what their plan was in case we had something else in mind! We had a perfect wedding and everyone is still raving about the food! It was all absolutely DELICIOUS! The staff was AWESOME!
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 with all of the information they need, to trust that the reception will be perfect without the attention of the bride. Upon showing up, everything was wonderful and exactly how I wanted it! They were very easy to reach with email and would respond very quickly. Would use them again in the future should another big event come up. Again, the food was so good, and reasonable for a tight budget!
Wow wow wow! Words cannot express the impeccable food , displays , service...generous portions.. all of our guests are raving about the whole experience, ambience and customer service!!! Our wedding was at Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, FL. This was the very best day of our lives and we are so appreciative of Amici's and the banquet captain (Nikitas) and team that took care of us for our wedding day! You will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you, Amici's, for creating the most magical day of our lives.
The food was exceptional, everyone was raving about it! Their staff were so sweet and pleasant, one of the waitresses even followed me around during photographs with an appetizer sampler so I could eat! Definitely recommend using them!
Excellent service from start to finish. We received so many compliments about the food and service - Thank you Amici's for making our day wonderful!!! We highly recommend Amici's. They were one of the best choices we made for our wedding!!
