10/21/2017 - Wedding Event at Crosley Estate. Overall, based on Guests’ input & our personal experience, there was not a better example of Perfection. Milan Catering represented an integral component of the whole part. Milan Catering without a doubt delivered Exceptional Expertise & Class to our event. Milan truly offers an amazing & diversified selection of food options as well as table decors. All Food was marvelous! Commitment, knowledge & positive energy is evident from Chef Roberta & her staff ! Chef Roberta is clearly the driver and technician of the Milan bus. Aside from her genuine smile and welcoming manner, it is clear she does the work as much as she speaks it. That went miles for us. Chef Roberta & her assisting Chefs were involved from the beginning of the meal planning to the end. Her servers did wonderful and her staff are pleasant & helpful. We did not use the wedding planning services of the business, as the planners were already booked ! Anastasia did assist us through basics such as vendor coordination for lighting & furniture as well as linens, tables, etc. She was nice & helpful in explaining things to me to aid in decisions.
Powel Crosley Estate is a stunning Historic venue right in our own backyard of Manatee/Sarasota Counties. The beauty of this venue speaks for itself & does not necessitate a high level of décor. What is important for this venue is the quality of the food & the basic serving and hosting environment. For our table settings, we selected copper vintage glass charger plates paired with copper flatware. Simple, Vintage and Elegant!! Milan truly offers an amazing & diversified selection of food options as well as table decors. Thank you so much Milan ! Laura & Tom

Deserve more than 5 stars!
So flexible the day when most of my guests arrived late. The staff never lost a beat and food was delicious. Outstanding job. Loved the signature drinks during cocktails.

Stick to food
The food and service was outstanding. Sunken Gardens farmed the beverage service to them as they had another e ent scheduled and unfortunately Milan let us down here. They charges us an extra $250 to extend bar service an hour then ran out of beer and gin and shut down early. When we asked for the $250 back they said they opened early. Yes they gave the groomsmen 7 beers early. Very unfortunate response and a dark side of a beautiful day. They should stick to food that was greatSent on 12/24/2018

DELICIOUS! Hard-working! Satisfactory!
We hired Milan Catering for our Nov 2018 Wedding in Clearwater. From the very first meeting, Chef Roberta was wonderful! She had specially made appetizers and entrees I had picked to try. My mom and I went to Milan's space in St. Pete which was lovely, clean, and professional. It was there we privately got to taste the freshly made bites. Chef Roberta was accommodating from the get-go, and even stated "if you don't like something it won't hurt my feelings, I know everyone's taste buds are different." Most everything we tried was so tasty! She had great suggestions and our meeting truly made choosing Milan an easy decision! We had previously met with different caterers that will not let you taste something you want to try ahead of time- you taste what they have readily available. That is unacceptable, and frankly ridiculous. We wanted our guests to have great food and full bellies! We didn't want your typical "wedding food" that was lukewarm and somewhat edible. Milan exceeded our already high expectations. What beautiful and delicious food they provided for our wedding!! Our guests raved about the amazing food! From the appetizers to the salad and especially the main course- everything was top notch! We had decided on a plated dinner, and it really gave the event a classy touch. The wait staff was outstanding!! Roberta even helped cut the cake for my wedding guests. She and her employees are all so helpful! I am so glad we went with Milan! Food is an important part of any wedding, and you should pick the best to give you and your guests and unforgettable time! Thank you Chef Roberta, and Milan staff!!!

We have been to a lot of weddings and for ours we wanted something special. Milan catering was amazing. From cooking everything on site to the coordination of our day simply amazing. Emily Rose went so far and above anything we could have imagined. From our disorganized mess , she turned our day into an elegant masterpiece. Emily and her team took care of every detail. Simply put 9ne of the best decisions we made.

Milan catered my daughter's May 5, 2018 wedding at Passe de Grille. Erin was wonderful to work with as I live in Baltimore and trusted her judgement on selections. The food was delicious and, just as the outside reception started, the rain came! Milan professionally set up the food inside and were flexible throughout the night. I cannot recommend them more highly and Erin, in particular.
Claire · Married on 04/15/2018
Anastasia and her team at Milan Catering were absolutely amazing to work with! The food was akin to a 5 star restaurant and their presentation was great! From a wedding coordinating perspective, Anastasia saved the day by helping us re-plan our entire ceremony due to bad weather. Our guests have said it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever been to, and Milan Catering & Events was a big part of that!
Nicole · Married on 04/07/2018
We are so thankful for Milan Catering making our wedding day a reality this spring. Erin made the process so easy with her attention to detail, organization and communication. Everything turned out so beautifully and it was everything we envisioned for our special day. We always felt like a priority and Erin always took the time to answer endless emails and coordinate with various vendors to bring everything together. Milan Catering is truly a one stop shop which put our minds at ease. The food was great and our guests really enjoyed the family style service! The late night bites and donut bar were a great hit. Milan Catering made this a pleasant and memorable experience and we cannot thank you enough for making sure every detail was perfect for our wedding! Sending lots of thanks to the whole team at Milan Catering!

We got married at the Powel Crosley and went with Milan Catering. They were absolutely perfect in every way. Laura our wedding planer was so much help both with the planing and on the day of our wedding. She was hands on with everything - from watching out for my little girls to even lending me a shoulder to hang on when getting dressed. We couldn't have done it with out her. We miss Laura and everyone from Milan catering already :) The food was delicious and even though we had "budget" decorations Laura made the dining room look gorgeous!! Outstanding service and you cant go wrong with choosing Milan catering.

We had the most incredible wedding at the Powel Crosley Estate. The food was amazing and our guests are still raving about the short ribs. A huge thank you to Laura for going above and beyond to find my sons glasses that he missed placed at the event. We are so sad it’s all over with and would do it again in a blink of an eye.
Brandi · Married on 01/20/2018
Milan Catering was a fantastic choice! Throughout the entire wedding planning process, Erin was incredibly helpful. The day of the wedding coordinator, Laura, was attentive, professional, and is amazing at her job! I would recommend Milan with 100% confidence that they’ll make your day seamlessly perfect.
Ashley · Married on 01/18/2018
WOW.. that is what our guests told us, the night of the evening and then the next day. Professional staff.. top notch... they deserve 1 0 stars
Luke · Married on 12/02/2017
They provided food for our holiday party. The staff was extremely professional and delicious!
Ethel · Married on 11/18/2017
Milan Catering was exceptional! I have nothing but great things to say from the planning all the way through the day of the wedding. We had never planned a wedding before but we were assisted by Erin O’keefe who went above and beyond for us. We had an amazing experience with her and would highly recommend requesting her (if possible). She was very responsive and easily accessible. She assisted us in planning and pointed out things that we had not thought of (since we had never done this before) all the while keeping in mind the style of the wedding that we wanted. She was extremely detail oriented and made sure that we had everything planned out perfectly from the plates/silverware to the food selection to creating the cake exactly as we requested.
In regards to the chefs, ALL of the guests were raving about the food which was both delicious and aesthetically charming. I would highly recommend Milan to anyone looking for wedding catering and/or any other events!
Matthew · Married on 10/19/2017
Milan catering literally astounded my friends and family with the flavor and quality of their food! During our cocktail hour they kept the passed hors d'oeuvres coming, surprising the guests with a truly international experience.
After the guests were seated for a family style feast Milan and their staff blew my guests and I away and made the evening one we won’t soon forget!!
Halima · Married on 10/15/2017
We worked with Erin, for our wedding on Oct.15th,2017, and she was absolutely lovely! Very understanding, helpful, and just all around great! The food exceeded our expectations, and the linens were just amazing! We definitely got our monies worth and couldn't have asked for a better caterer.
Mini · Married on 05/21/2017
best decision ever, just stop here and hire them. Great food, pretty decor and great service
Michelle · Married on 04/28/2017
Delicous food. Chef Roberta and her team were so helpful for our reception. We chose family style for our dinner and letting everyone try all of the food just made the evening perfect. AND... we loved thier cupcakes!
Danielle · Married on 04/21/2017
Loved the idea that they could do it all. Food was amazing, as delicious as what we had for the tasting. We really appreciate their ability to adjust the schedule (raindrops) for the day of and move dinner up when the clouds came in. We highly recommend their wedding cakes and desserts, just the right thing to top it off! Put this company on your list.
Amanda · Married on 04/17/2017
I can't express enough how amazing everyone at Milan Catering is! Erin, Anastasia and Chef Roberta made our wedding effortless and made our classic, rustic vision come to life. They didn't hesitate when we chose a unique brewery location and every aspect of the reception looked exactly as we imagined. To top it all off, besides making delicious food, Chef Roberta was amazing with my son. So that I could do my bridal entrance, Chef Roberta stopped what she was doing to soothe him and he was asleep in seconds! I highly recommend Milan Catering for all your catering, wedding planning and babysitting needs!! Above and beyond!
Ashley · Married on 12/10/2016
It's been a little over two weeks since our wedding and our guests are still telling us how great the food was (family style)! Wow! We worked with Erin, who was a great communicator and super easy to work with! We made many changes to our proposal over the course of the year, but Erin was always prompt and helpful. Our tasting with Erin and Chef Roberta was also noteworthy because they let you taste the entire menu to make sure you are satisfied with the meal. Milan also handled our liquor catering, and many of our guests commented on the great service from the bartenders! Thank you so much for the great memories!!!
Alyssa · Married on 12/09/2016
Katen was amazing!!! Food was spectacular! Great experience with Milan!
Danitza · Married on 11/27/2016
Milan Catering is AMAZING!
My husband and I are a multi-cultural couple and we really wanted a caterer who could incorporate both Asian and Spanish food into our cocktail and reception menu. Milan Catering did just that and the food was incredible. We still get raves about how delicious the food was.
During your menu tasting, they adjust the food to however you specify and they make suggestions of food to compliment one another.
They work with your budget and they try to be as accommodating as possible. They worked with our venue without any issues and everything went smoothly. Remember, you get what you pay for and this team will not let you down on great service and great food.
Thank you Milan Catering for making our day that much better!
David · Married on 11/05/2016
What a great experience, working with Erin at Milan, to plan and put together an absolutely wonderful reception for my daughter's wedding! Great communication, always asking the right questions, was followed by terrific execution by Roberta, Matt, JJ and the rest of the crew. The food was delicious and the service was over the top. Milan is a no-brainer for a great wedding day! THANKS!
