    Excellent experience!

    We spoke with Sara several months leading up to our wedding and she helped us plan my wedding reception here at Arnoldi's. It was a small wedding (30 people total) and she gave us the back patio terrace with curtains. It was the PERFECT size for the entire group! We were blocked off from the rest of the restraurant and it felt very private. She helped me create and customize our menu for the wedding which was family style catering and the food tasted absolutely amazing. (our guests are still telling us how fantastic the food was!!) She even created special plates for family members with food allergies. They allowed us to have a microphone for speeches and other music, even though the patio wasn't closed off to other people. The small wedding was treated as if we had 500 people there and we felt incredibly special and important. We had servers coming in and out constantly asking what we needed, help clear our plates and never complained (and I know how these large groups can be!) The server attending our alcohol table was also doing a fantastic job at helping our guests keep their glasses full. Before the wedding I gave Sara all of our table decorations to set up with my ideas in mind, and when we walked in to the reception, I was completely stunned and amazed at what she did with our decorations!!! I was BEYOND impressed, it was more than I ever imagined it to be. I was honestly expecting some average looking table but nope, Sara made it spectacular and made my wedding feel like a huge expensive wedding, even though it was so small. I would recommend this business to anyone with a wedding, large or small because they truly go above and beyond, treat you like royality, and make your day all about you.

    Amazing Wedding at Arnoldi's

    We had our wedding at Arnoldis back area this November, and it was amazing. Sara from Arnoldi's was a pleasure to work with, and she helped make our big day easy and stress free. Arnoldi's was very flexible with our changing guest total, and the food was excellent. I highly recommend!!
