I am so thrilled that we hired Maddalena's as the caterer for our wedding! Right off the bat, I was impressed with the choices on their menu and with our contact at Maddalena's, Amy. I cannot stress enough how amazing Amy was to work with. She ...
was very quick to respond to emails and very thorough in her responses. She was easy to work with and had a ton of great ideas! At our tasting, she suggested some really fun ideas around the cocktail hour and late night snack. One thing you should know is that you are not necessarily limited to the menu that is on the website. Amy helped us customize some of the meals and also sourced special items, like popcorn for our popcorn bar and donuts and cider, from vendors around Grand Rapids. We found the pricing to be very reasonable compared with other caterers in the area and the quality of the food was excellent. Our guests raved about the food and felt that it really made our day unique. On the wedding day, everything went exactly as planned and not a single detail was missed. I sincerely cannot recommend Maddalena's highly enough.

When we first started reading reviews of Maddalena’s Catering we were wondering why every post mentioned Amy, now we know why! Maddalena’s catered our wedding reception and the experience from beginning to end was phenomenal. Amy was more than ...
accommodating with our special requests and went above and beyond to ensure our menu was exactly what we wanted on our big day, as she had the chef prepare non-menu items for us. She was an excellent communicator and even responded to our emails when she was on vacation! She could not have made us feel more special on the day of our wedding. She was at the venue from start to finish ensuring every detail we planned with her was executed. She was the first to come up and ask us what we wanted from the bar as soon as we sat down, she surprised the bride with a special entrée (she remembered how much we loved it during the tasting!), and even had a whole pizza waiting for us at the end of the night! Amy was like a ninja; she was there to catch anything (literally – the brides fork dropped and she was there with a new one before we knew anyone noticed), so that every detail went smoothly. We had so many guests comment about how amazing the food was during the event and many are still talking about it after. If you’re having any doubts about having Maddalenaa’s cater your event, rest assured you will be blown away by the service and the food!

We used Maddalena's for our open house wedding reception. Amy at Maddalena's was accommodating to our requests and extremely easy to communicate with before and during our reception. She was very timely with her responses to emails. Amy was ...
available throughout our entire reception to help and make sure things were going smoothly. She was flexible with how we wanted the room setup and helpful with utilizing the space to make our guests feel comfortable. Our guests enjoyed the meal and we were happy with how it was served. The only room for improvement would be to have a sign in front of the building as it was difficult for some guests to find.

Her, and two of her employees, were kind enough to offer us help in any way that they could. Lastly, the food was delicious! We had half wraps, with their homemade chips (which may be the best thing I've ever tasted), spinach salad and fruit salad, with a sangria bar.

We recently had Maddalena’s cater the food and provide bar service for our wedding, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with the amazing job they did! All of our guests commented on how delicious the food was and how much they enjoyed it. ...
Every detail was taken care of and everything went perfectly! We felt that their prices were extremely reasonable, and we loved that our buffet package included appetizers served during cocktail hour, table service, cake service, and linens. We also appreciated being able to customize our bar package and add signature drinks to show off our personalities.
Their catering coordinator, Amy, was an absolute DREAM to work with!!! Partnering with her was our favorite part about hiring Maddalena’s, which is saying a lot because the food was delicious! She was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and helpful, which allowed my fiancé and I to feel completely confident that everything was under control. She went above and beyond to help us in so many ways: she created a separate kids’ buffet for our younger guests, customized our bar package so we got exactly what we wanted at a great price, and stepped in to avoid us having the wrong color table linens when the linen company goofed up (without me even knowing about it until afterwards!) We can’t recommend Amy and Maddalena’s outstanding food and service enough!
