    Not only was the food fantastic, the staff and service are second to none. "This dinner is amazing" was a direct quote from the father of the bride!

    They ran a seamless show behind the scenes. It's so rare I get to work with such a great team. Plus, they are FUN!

    I really hope we get to work together in the future!

    Amazing Food, Service and Coordination!

    Rania's was recommended to me by a co-worker but was also one for the preferred vendors at my venue. I am so happy that I worked with her company, as they were one of the main reasons that my wedding went flawlessly. Rania's team executed everything exactly as promised and made sure all of our guests had an excellent night! The food was something that was really important to me so I was extremely happy when all of my guests talked about it for weeks after the wedding!
    Although I did not expect her to do this, Rania also coordinated with my other vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page!
    Thanks Rania and team!

    Choose Rania as your Caterer! Look no further

    Rania's catering did an excellent job at my daughter's wedding. From the taste testing to the actual day of the wedding. Our guest could not stop talking about the pan seared Chilean sea bass melted in their mouths. The horderves were fabulous and the way this staff pays close attention to detail made my daughters memories something she will cherish for the rest of her life. Food was the most important thing to her as well as creating a beautiful atmosphere. Rania kept all the venues organized and this made it a seamless effort which otherwise could be very stressful when trying to tie in all the details of a wedding. Rania takes the stress out of the planning process. Her attention to detail is tremendous and she stays on top of every single detail. I would highly recommend Rania to anyone who is planning a wedding especially at The Pennsylvanian an absolutely beautiful venue and landmark. My relatives even commented that the waitress addressed them by name which I thought was a very personal touch. Also the floor manager was excellent she was extremely efficient and on top of everything. You just asked and you had it! Rania you are top notch in your field--Simply the best! Thanks for a wonderful experience!

    Wedding at The Pennsylvanian 10/27

    Rania was flat out amazing from start to finish! As out of towners, we were genuinely concerned about acquiring a caterer that matched our high standards but were blown away by the food prepared by Rania. Everyone continues to rave about the hor’doeurves and the sea bass. In fact, my relatives are even considering having her cater my grandfather’s 100th birthday party! Thank you to Rania and her team for making our day flawless.

    A fantastic catering choice for any couple planning their wedding

    Rania was such a delight to work with, from beginning to end! She was accommodating, knowledgeable, and helpful with us as we planned our dinner menu. She made herself available to us as a resource for the months leading up to our wedding, and was extremely prompt responding to any of our questions or requests about the process. In addition, Rania worked very hard to coordinate her catering with the other vendors at our wedding. She and her staff made absolutely delicious, beautiful food and were extremely friendly and professional during our reception. We cannot recommend working with Rania enough, she exceeded our expectations in every respect!

    Rania and her team really took the lead on all components of the wedding. The food was delicious, but Rania does so much more than just cater the event. From the start of our relationship with her, she was the point person for all vendors in our wedding, and she coordinated the entire night, from start to finish. She and her team ensured that all facets of the wedding were meticulously executed.

    The food was great, from the hors d'oeuvres to the cake - a welcome change from most weddings I have attended where the food is forgettable. I particularly recommend what I ordered for myself: pork medallions wrapped in prosciutto with a cherry-balsamic glaze, over mashed potatoes. It was superb.

    In planning our menu, Rania was also particularly helpful. We let her know our budget, and she always kept it in mind when making suggestions, never pressuring or up-selling us.

    Our venue required equipment and dining rentals, and Rania coordinated all of it. This made our lives much easier, particularly because my wife and I reside several hours away. Additionally, Rania was always very communicative, informing us of any developments and asking us questions as they arose. She always foresaw issues that we never would have thought of ourselves, and she offered suggestions to efficiently solve them. We trusted her expertise, and she did not disappoint.

    There's clearly a reason why Rania is the premier event caterer in Pittsburgh. She's a lovely woman who was a pleasure to work with -- as was her entire team, from Mandy on down -- and my wife and I can't recommend her enough. Thank you Rania!

    Remarkable!

    Rania did a fabulous job for our wedding at the Pennsylvanian on July 28th. From start to finish, the food was amazing! Rania’s has an extensive variety of appetizers and her suggestions for the appetizers was perfect. The dinner entrees were excellent and the presentation was phenomenal. We received so many compliments on the steak. It couldn’t have been prepared better! The desert table also provided our guests with many delicious choices. The late night snack was incredible and a perfect way to end the night. Rania is so knowledgeable and detail oriented, you can be sure everything will be perfect!!

    Rania and her staff were AMAZING!! I do not have enough good things to say about how organized, detailed, and great they were. Rania makes sure every single detail is taken care of and you can be sure that you will not have to worry about one thing on your wedding day. Her food is delicious and her floor manager, cyndie was top notch. They had everything planned perfectly and even made sure our other vendors were on schedule and informed of all the big details of the day as well. I highly highly recommend Rania!!!

    Let me begin by saying if this review would allow me to rate with 10 stars instead of 5, that’s how I would start. Rania is a “10” from beginning to end. Without going into specific details of our wedding, let me just verbalize that our beautiful wedding reception exceeded every expectation. Rania is more than hands on! She not only guides an anxious mother of the bride, but counsels as well. She calms every worry with her knowledge and kind heart.
    Her experience in catering is second to none. Her food is off the charts delicious and her reputation speaks for that. Her office staff as well as day of servers/bartenders leave you feeling quite special. The VIP treatment is not only noticeable but perfected. Rania and staff run better than a well oiled machine. We truly were amazed, as well as our 290 guests, at the service provided. Not only the friendliness and professionalism of the servers, but the timely manner in which our guests were served their meal (gourmet and piping hot).
    It was such a well orchestrated journey planning a wedding with Rania at the helm.
    Not only does she deserve an A+, she surrounds herself with the best people in the business, and they deserve one too!
    Rania made our wedding one for the books!!
    I truly could go on and on, but let me close by reiterating our complete and 100% satisfaction with Rania. We thank you for letting us share our experience.

    To say that Rania and her team are 5 out of 5 is just not saying enough about this amazing woman and her team. I can’t thank Rania enough for support, dedication and high level of detail that she provided us throughout the entire planning process. She truly made me and my mother feel like we were her only clients and helped make the planning process that much more special for the two of us. When wedding day came, she and her staff were nothing but the absolute best!! My husband and I felt like a king and a queen on this day. If there were any hiccups I knew nothing of them. My guests to this day still rave about the food and the overall professionalism her staff provided. Her relationships with the other vendors is outstanding and because of that helped me make sure I got exactly what I envisioned for the venue. At the Pennsylvanian you have to pull together all the details down to the silverware and Rania made that process very easy. I thank you again and would highly recommend them all. You are the best Rania!!
