What our clients are saying:

"A flawless smooth transaction. I  Needed tables, chairs and table cloths for a family get-together. Tables delivered and removed within the time frames stated.  chairs light weight and easy to deal with (on a wheeled rack).  No hassle with the table cloths...what if some one gets mustard on them? No worries.

I would definately use The Italian Guy again" - Sam V.
"My husband and I attended a wedding in early August that was catered by Paul and his staff. Every bite was wonderful! The tri-tip was well seasoned and the chicken was perfectly cooked! Usually the chicken can be a bit dry at these events but not at this one, it was great. The early appetizers were plentiful and there was a large variety of choices. Then when I got my dinner plate it was full! The staff was very attentive as well. I would not hesitate to use the Italian Guy Catering for any event I was hosting." - Lynn T.
"Paul and his crew catered our wedding and they did a fantastic job! They were very professional, from the moment I booked them Paul was easy to communicate with. The food was absolutely fantastic all my guests loved it, especially the mashed potatoes. I highly recommend Paul and is crew for any catering needs." - Nicole G.

"Thank you so much for helping us celebrate our big day! People are still talking about how amazing the food was! You all did such an amazing job making all our requests a reality. Thank you also for the kind gift...it's amazing! Love, The Stroupe's"
