    Stop right here! You found your catering needs!!

    I cannot give enough kudos to Lori and her staff. The food and set up were literally the BEST I have ever encountered! Lori was a joy to work with from finish to start. She was honest and reasonable. Everyone raved about the food and not one piece of leftover was thrown out. Her prices are unbeatable. Save yourself the headache and call her now, you will NOT be disappointed! Thank you!!

    Best Tasting Food Ever!

    Had the pleasure of having them cater my wedding 2 days ago, November 9th, and I must say not 1 guest had anything bad to say about the food. In fact everyone was asking who catered my wedding because the food was impeccable. The salmon was so tender and juicy and filled with flavor. The parmesan crust it had was my favorite part. The grilled chicken was so tender and flavorful that I had none left lol everyone including my other vendors were raving about the garlic mashed potatoes because they were just heaven!
    Not only was the food delicious the staff was amazing! They not only made sure everyone of my guests had food to eat they made sure I was good and hydrated which I thought was so considerate. I had the best experience with Amici catering and I will not only be using them again but will be suggesting them to everyone I know. Thank you Lori for everything!!!

    Fantastic food for our special day!

    Fantastic food for our wedding reception! Amici Catering was very easy to work with in creating a special menu for our event. They were punctual, professional, flexible, and the food was delicious! We also hired a bartender who did a great job making sure everybody was well taken care of. If we have any special events in the future, we will definitely be hiring Amici Catering!

    Perfectly Tailored menu

    Amici listened to our theme and the food we wanted and totally tailored it for us, it was a desert theme so everything had Cactus with cactus flavoring in it. They quickly answered all of our messages and calls and we're very laid back about payments. It was so amazing!!

    Our wedding was in October 2017 and our guests are still telling us how great the food was! Not only that, but Amici wasn't one of the most expensive places either which makes it that much better! They were always responsive, worked with our budget and gave us different options and the food is amazing. Thank you Amici!

    I went with Amici catering because they were recommended by my venue and I am so glad. Lori and her husband did a fantastic job from the planning, menu suggestions, free tasting and the final service. We had the perfect amount of food, everything was super delicious, the presentation was on point and my guests were happy. What more could I have asked for? If you are looking for a great caterer, look no further than Amici. You will not be disappointed. Thank you for helping make my wedding memorable!

    I highly recommend Amici catering. They made my brunch wedding a huge success! The food was perfect, everything tasted amazing. Lori was a pleasure to work with and her crew were extremely helpful the day of the wedding with making sure my husband and I got to eat, even cleaning up after some messy guests.
    If I ever have another big event, Amici will be my first call for catering.

    The food was very delicious and it's budget friendly caterer. I have a tight budget $800.00 for 45 people, and Lori helped create the menu under my budget. They dropped off the food and it was hot and decorated nicely. Many guests said it was most delicious food at the wedding they've ever had. It's worth of money. I definitely recommend to contact Amici caterer to ask quotes. They will provide it fast.

    Lori was very responsive and professional. I communicate with her very quickly. She worked hard to give the several quotes in order to customize the menu for me. I really appreciate their excellent customer service.

    We hired Amici catering for a dinner party for 16 people. The food was exceptional. We had appetizers that were delicious and great starters to a wonderful meal. The dinner was prepared by Lori and Scot and served by Sharon and Rachel . All extremely professional and the food was to die for. We had spring pea bruschetta / mini meatballs and fig quesadilla for apps. and then kale soup (amazing) and chopped salad then the entrees of Vesuvio Chicken, Baked Spaghetti with Marinara and roasted Pork Loin all delicious. We cant thank Amici catering enough for making our special night the best party we have ever hosted. We will recommend them to everyone we know.

    Fabulous, perfection, scrumptious! Our guests were overwhelmed with the quality, beauty and amount of the food offered at our wedding by Amici Catering. The wait staff performed perfectly and silently while we partied the night away!

    I've used caterers in my home before but none were EVER as attentive to detail and helped me so much in the planning and hosting of an event. Lori met with us several times before the wedding to go over table placement, lighting, linens, and the food menu. She and her staff are such a value for the money. However, when hosting an important event, it should be more than about the money. Lori and her crew are the people you want holding your hand, cooking your food and telling your guests how fabulous you are!

    Quick review because my computer deleted my last one. :D Ordered 50 Italian tables + fruit and cheese plate and one server for 50 people. The server was genial and professional. We never had to think twice about the food or the set up. Lori was super helpful with figuring out what was the best thing to order for a mixed group of vegetarians/vegans/gluten frees and regular joes. I couldn't make it to the tasting, but Amici even sent home some of each of the dishes my fiance tried, so I could try them when I got off work. Great price, wonderful service and wonderful food! Thank you.

    I would even think of using any other catering company. Michael and staff are and outstanding group. True professionals! Somehow they make it look easy. They guided us every step of the way and delivered big time. Our guests were very impressed with Amici's catering and mentioned this numerous times. That gave us further affirmation that we had the right company....Bottom line is that if you want a stellar catering company, if you want the absolute best, than choose Amici's Catering and never look back!

    Lori was extremely helpful and very friendly throughout the entire wedding planning process. She asked questions to ensure that the menu was exactly how we wanted and that it was a personal representation of us as a couple. Even as we would change our mind about exactly what we wanted or when the guest count changed significantly, she was always very flexible and responsive in making sure the menu was perfect. Amici is very affordable and a month after the wedding, guests are still commenting on how delicious the food was!

    From the moment I spoke to Lori on the phone I fell in love. She has a way of making you feel so special. She truly cares about her clients and really wants to make your dreams come true! She wanted to know how we met and what kind of people we were, she was sincerely interested in finding out who we were. Then she came up with all these wonderful ideas to personalize our catering for us. There wasn’t a lot of room in our budget but she was able to work with what we had. I am so grateful for her and her team. Each person is so genuine and loving. They really care about executing your perfect day. They gave us ideas that didn’t even pertain to the food! And followed through with anything they could help is with. I am so glad we were able to have Amici Catering work our wedding, they truly made it special.

    Synopsis: Food is incredible, guests stated, “Best wedding food we’ve ever had,” attentive staff, affordable
    Amici catered our wedding on October 4, 2013, and they were beyond amazing. We searched for caterers for a long time. Coming from a family with a chef, and those that have worked in the business, we had high expectations. Not to mention we were paying for everything on our own, and so affordability was key. Amici has an amazing staff, the food is incredible, and they are organized and professional – everything you could ever want out of a caterer. Lori is one in a million. She was extremely receptive and responsive with all of my questions and brought to my attention many small details I might have overlooked (like having food for vendors). She sent me an email each time she received a payment with the on going total. During the wedding, the staff brought the bridal party food and drinks during pictures. They were very friendly and attentive. Everyone raved about the food (we had the Guadalajara style fajitas, street tacos, cilantro rice, and smoky black beans). I can't tell you how many times someone said, "This is the best wedding food we've ever had." I just honestly cannot think of enough great things to say. I would recommend them a million times over!

    We used Amici's to cater our wedding. They were great. Lori was so helpful and knowledgeable. Not only did she give us advice about catering but all aspects of the reception. They were on time and the food was great- everyone complimented. We went with an Italian buffet- it was perfect. They also helped book the bartender. I recommend them to everyone!

    Lori was so amazing for our wedding day. She was willing to work with us to make sure that we were in budget. When a full mash potatoe bar was out of our budget she suggested mash potatoe shooter. a mini version. It was my favorite part. She even let our parents host an appitizer Table where we had some of our favorite cheeses sausages and other things. The servers on the day were wonderful they were always on top of everything. Everyone loved the food. We got so many complements on it. We strongly recommend them to anyone.

    I have attended many events where Amici Catering provided the food. The food is always delicious and the setup is always so inviting and organized. They are so easy to work with and are so imaginative and creative. They will truly provide a meal for your guests that will impress, satisfy and delight them. Give them a call to discuss your special event.
