    Chefanelli's Catering is amazing! This was actually the second wedding that Chefanelli's has catered for my family. We absolutely love the food and Mark's personal attention and desire to make sure everything is taken care of. I so much appreciate the fact that Mark is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure he delivers his best. Highly, highly recommend!!

    Chefanelli's Catering was the best catering we could have asked for at my wedding. It was a huge hit and I will definitely use him for any other special events I may have. The amount of food you will receive it awesome and people definitely do not go home hungry. He made the best lamb pop appetizers for our guest, they were especially the talk of the night! Good good Chefanelli's continue the great cooking. Highly recommend for all brides and grooms!!

    Hire Mark and his team and you will NOT be disappointed! Chefanellis catered my wedding this past Saturday and everyone went on about how excellent the food was. Mark and his team went above and beyond for us! He was wonderful to work with and it felt like we had a wedding planner as well as a caterer! We could not be more happy. Made our day even more perfect!!! :D
