Who We Are

At Nadi Plates (pronounced "Naughty Plates"), our mantra is simple: we treat you like family because that's who we are...literally. There's Chef Nadia, the daughter of Italian immigrants with 30-plus years in food service management; Zach, the wannabe-wedding planner (and real-life wedding videographer); and Bianca, Nadia's mini-me and right-hand woman in the kitchen. Together, our mission is to bring Nadia's unique take on the Italian cuisine to your plate. And because our family is big, crazy and full of many ~different~ characters, our menu is all of those things, too. We can work with any budget, from $7 personal pizzas to full-service sit-down dinner and equipment rental. We don't charge extra for gluten-free or plant-based substitutes, and we take care of your vendors, too.

Where We Serve

We're based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. But because we work out of a state-of-the-art mobile kitchen, we can go virtually anywhere!

    Best Caterers!

    If you are looking for the most caring, go out of their way caterers you have found them! My husband and I had the worst experience with caterers until we met Nadi Plates. From the moment we met them, it was the best experience we could ask for. They went out of their ways to make our day truly special and it was!
    They communicate with us through the entire process, never leading us on without knowing the answer. They were amazing and so helpful during the process, they truly made me feel like family. This caterer team will be your family if you choose them, they will not let you down.
    Now for the food… IT WAS AMAZING! If you are looking for a fun unique meal for your wedding, this is it. We did pizza and pasta and our guest loved it and still talk about it today! I promise you, you can taste the love in the food.
    My husband and I can’t thank Nadi Plates for making our day so special. We are so grateful we found them and couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

    Our wedding was over 200 guest and Nadi Plates served 3 appetizers during cocktail hour, plated salad, family style pasta and pizza buffet!

    Wedding experience

    Overall our experience was great! Nadi, Zach and Dave were extremely timely, professional and the food was excellent! If you’re looking for amazing Italian food or just a down right great meal that everyone will love Nadi plates is the way to go.
    PS. The meatball appetizers were absolute phenomenal (and so many guests commented on how amazing all the food was)

    Nadi was also able to accommodate our two vegan guest and two gluten free guests!
