Beach wedding catering
The guys at Pasta Chef are brilliant. We are from the UK and found them by chance. We got married on the beach and had about 50 guests. They came and set up at our venue and the food was fantastic. We had 2 chefs and they also provided a bar service for us. Everybody was really friendly and our guests were amazed at the quality of the food.Sent on 09/23/2019
I would not hesitate to recommend these guys
Thank you all so much Tony and Gail (Sand Dollar)

I have nothing but the best of things to say from this Caterer. I feel like they went above and beyond to make things perfect for us. They were extremely affordable and payment was convenient. Any last minute changes I had were taken care with no problems. Our wedding was April 20 2019 and my guests loved the food and the caterers. I would definitely recommend to any and everyone.Sent on 05/01/2019

Love how accommodating they were!
When we started looking at caterers, I didn't really consider pasta as an option because we aren't big pasta eaters. But, as we started looking at different companies with more "traditional" wedding menus (chicken with potatoes and green beans type things), the more we realized how much it was going to cost us to feed all of our vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, lactose intolerant and other guests that couldn't eat the other foods (without only serving them salad). Pasta chef catering was WONDERFUL. ALL of our guests were happy, well fed, and loved the customization of their dinner. There were multiple pasta types, sauce types, main add ins (chicken, sausage, veggies), and extras like artichoke hearts, garlic, sundried tomatoes, etc... They were nice enough to provide gluten free pasta at no extra charge and provide unbuttered bread.Sent on 05/20/2019
They were always good about responding to my questions, showing me the cost breakdown of everything, set up and clean up, were very professional to our guests, and served us first to get the dinner rolling and keep the bride and groom fed. DEFINITELY recommend- we received so many compliments on our catering choice.

I can't stress this to you enough... everyone LOVED Pasta Chef Catering at our wedding! We chose them for dinner, appetizers, and bartending service with the mixer package. WORTH EVERY PENNY. The staff was very attentive to us and our guests. Not to mention the food is DELICIOUS. Almost everyone went back for more! Highly recommend for your wedding!!!Sent on 03/31/2019

Superior quality, affordable and so delicious!
Highly recommend!! They are affordable, high quality, delicious food and fantastic service! Our original catering plans fell through so about a month out we were panicking to find catering. We looked at a few “affordable” options and they all were low quality and it was clear they were the “cheaper” choice. Pasta chef came to the rescue!The entire team was so helpful and flexible. Steve worked with us to set everything up. He was responsive for my MANY questions and always made us feel comfortable and assured. They worked with our budget to get exactly what we wanted and the packages include so much it’s wonderful! Michael was on site day of and he and his team were amazing! Everything looked so nice and tasted awesome! Michael introduced himself to me (the bride), the groom and our parents. He was always checking to make sure everything was good and we were happy. Top notch service the entire time. The food phenomenal. Hot,fresh and choices for everyone. We’re still receiving compliments for how great the food was, even from the picky, hard to please people :). Literally you can’t go wrong with Pasta Chef!Sent on 03/02/2019

If I could give them 6 stars I could!
This caterer is like a dream come true. Having worked in food service I get the concept that its impossible for all X amount of guest meals to be cooked all at once and served. This leads to the unavoidable overcooked, undercooked, or overwarmed (ie Dry) food. Pasta chef has found a brilliant way around this. They have several cooking stations with a dozen or so ingredients where they cook the persons meal fresh right on the spot.Sent on 02/26/2019
Suddenly presto, your pasta is served right off the grill, just how you like, fresh, hot and delicious. That wouldn't be enough of course if they had low quality or limited ingredients (which it seems like most caters have) but coming from a foodie believe me this is not the case. They had a dozen or so options and the ingredients like pesto, garlic, and artichokes were very obviously fresh. My mouth is just watering remembering it. Who even says that about a wedding cater?
I don't know how they keep their prices so low but they were a godsend to the budget too. Like a THIRD of the price of the other vendors I was looking at. I know I'm gushing but I could go on and on. The staff was super friendly and flexible. The set up was professional and classy. Portions were big. The additional services were helpful and also priced very reasonable (like cake cutting/serving). Even the sweet iced tea was delicious. I can't even tell you the amount of compliments I got from guests. When I told guests there was extra if they wanted more they did not hesitate.
Do yourself, your budget and your guests a favor and check them out. It'll be one of your best decisions.

I am a wedding coordinator for Coastal Coordinating that had the pleasure of working with Pasta Chef on 2/2/19. They were so sweet and easy to work with. I loved the uniqueness of their catering and they are very affordable! Highly recommend their build your own pasta station that every guest will love. I look forward to working with Michael and Steve in the future. (:Sent on 02/05/2019

Professional and affordable
I unfortunately didn't get to use this vendor because of the venues rules and guidelines. But I wanted to recommend them because they had a great menu, and we're great at answering all my parents questions when it came to the food and pricing. I would highly recommend this company.Sent on 12/01/2018

Great fresh food
We had an appetizer hour with vegetable platters and gourmet cheese and crackers.Then We did a pasta bar with salad and fresh garlic bread. The food was fantastic and the chefs were professional and moved our guests through the line quickly. We loved the idea of having fresh food that everyone could design their own dish. They even have gluten free pasta.Sent on 09/30/2019

Pasta Chef catered an in-home Engagement Party for our daughter and her fiance on 5/28/17. Absolute top-notch service, quality and professionalism! Very accommodating for special requests. Cheerful and friendly to all of our guests. Everyone raved about the quality and freshness of the food, and the variety of options available at the pasta station! Great food option for vegetarian guests! Irene, Jiri and Jarmila were a pleasure to work with! I Highly recommend! The ONLY negative, was that some of us found that the plastic plates that were used were a bit thin. Although plenty sturdy enough, the pasta was HOT on the hands while holding this plate. Definitely not a big deal though!Sent on 05/30/2017

Very professional and very easy to deal with. We had some complicated issues to our wedding agenda and they handled it perfectly. The music was great, timing impeccable and everyone had a wonderful time. I also felt the charges were very reasonable compared to caterers. What I liked best is that there was something for every picky eaters from Gluten Free to Vegan. Also their staff for the bar and food were so friendly and professional. I wish I could give them 10 Stars!Sent on 05/17/2018

I cannot put in to words how amazing this caterer is! We selected them for my daughters Clearwater Beach destination wedding on 4-17-18. The food and service was beyond outstanding! Michael and his team of professionals were 100% courteous and responsive to our wishes from our very 1st contact. I highly recommend Pasta Chef Catering and give them a TEN STAR RATING! Everyone at our event asked how I found them. We initially contacted them based on their online reviews! Such a fantastic and unique dining experience. Thank you Michael and team!

We had an excellent experience with Irene and Michael. They were so easy to work with! We hired them for our October 2017 wedding, and we couldn't have been more thrilled. We hired them because they were the cheapest I could find and I hired them without doing a taste test! THEIR FOOD WAS INCREDIBLE! Our guests even months later are still telling us how awesome the food was! They made sure that we ate first and escorted us to the buffet line and made sure we had a drink and food and anything else we could need! He check in with us frequently to see if there was anything we needed or anything he could do to help with ANYTHING! We even had extra servers and one that doubled as a second bartender when the food was finished! They were WAY more than a caterer. They exceeded my expectations to the fullest. They also stayed with my wedding planner into the wee hours of the night cleaning up our venue!
We also hired their bartender and bar package. We supplied all of our liquor, wine, and beer, and they stocked the rest of the mixers, blenders, fruit, shakers, ice, bottle openers, napkins, cups, straws, etc! It was the best money I could have ever spent! It made our lives sooo much easier! They were even available for me to pick their brain on what liquors to purchase, what wines, and how much of everything they thought I would need. At the last minute I sent a text asking if they could set up a table outside for a cocktail hour since our venue wouldn't be open to our guests until after pictures, and they said, "Sure. No problem!" And there they were with their coolers, a beautiful table display, and happy guests with drinks! We also added in the Gourmet Cheese/Crackers/Vegetable Platter during the cocktail hour! They really did a phenomenal job, and I was just OVER THE MOON with their service.Sent on 12/29/2017

GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT! Seriously great! Stop what your doing and call them up. They have the most "bang for your buck" service. Its something new and excited and a great option when you don't want to do buffet or sit down dinner. This is a great experience, my guest ate a lot of great food and TONNS of people told me the food was spectacular. I am obsessed with their marinara sauce it was insanely yummy! Irene and Michael are an incredible team. Michael made sure that I was eating and drinking on my wedding day, and I don't think I would have if it wasn't for him! Thank you guys sooo much please call them up they are incredible humans and awesome food!Sent on 07/10/2017

"Okay, can we talk about how good the food was at your wedding?"Sent on 09/06/2017
"I'm going to this wedding tonight; I hope the food is as good as it was at your wedding."
"That was the best food I have ever had at a wedding."
"The caterers were so nice and friendly, and the food was SO GOOD."
These are just a few of the things I have heard from my guests after our wedding. Pasta Chef Catering is absolutely amazing! I always tell people about how great they were. The planning process was so smooth, they always answered emails within a very reasonable amount of time, and they were so willing to work with us and our budget. We had nearly 170 guests, and I have only heard positive feedback about the food! And of course, my husband and I thought it was delicious, too. We are so thankful that we chose Irene and Michael for our wedding, and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer. The price, the taste of the food, and the service they provide cannot be beat.

So easy to work with! Just tell them what you need, and they've got you covered. The food is absolutely fantastic, and the portions are exceedingly generous...everyone went back for seconds, and a few even had thirds...and there was still a little bit left over! The per-person price is so low, it honestly feels like I robbed them.Sent on 04/02/2017
So many people were talking about how good the food was, and how full they were, long after dinner was finished.
The catering team went so far above and beyond what was expected...I can't even begin to thank everyone enough for helping to make our wedding an amazing event.
I will absolutely be hiring them again for parties that require catering!!!

Working with Pasta Chef Catering for our private event was a dream! Every staff member was friendly and so helpful. The setup was beautiful, the food was amazing and entertaining to watch them preparing right in front of you. Best of all they left every space they used better than they found it.

A million thanks to you Irene and Micheal!!! With all the wedding stresses I'm so thankful that our whole time dealing with the two of you was drama free, the set up at my venue was perfection, the line moved so well I never saw anyone waiting long for their food. A big moment for me was seeing someone fan their food, and I thought "thank god!! We aren't people with cold wedding food!!!". Irene and Micheal, you are truly wonderful people, your food is AMAZING (and so affordable!), we are so thankful we found you and I would hire you again with no hesitationSent on 11/15/2016

They were amazing to work with and the food was amazing as well. We booked pasta chef a few months before the wedding and they were timely in getting us a quote and setting a menu that worked for our budget. A few weeks prior to the wedding an issue came up and they worked with us after hours to make sure we got everything settled to ensure we had food for the day of our wedding. They are an amazing team and could never thank them enough for all of their generosity and professionalism they provide!!! Thanks Michael and irene!!!Sent on 11/07/2016
