We had a terrific experience with Giuseppe! Our guests loved the food and even commented on how nice the servers were (we heard that from several guests!). Morgan was a delight to work with - she was so helpful and responsive! We had a guest with severe food allergies and our catering director, David, went above and beyond to ensure she could enjoy the food without a worry - that meant so much to us. Absolutely no complaints!

There are not enough words to convey how amazing and delicious the food is and how thorough, professional, dedicated, exceptionally personable and overall great Giuseppe and his team are. Giuseppe catered our wedding this past April and not only were we ecstatic but our guests seem to be too! We have received nothing but raving reviews. I am still receiving text messages from friends with photos of our food and exclamations of how delicious it was.

Giuseppe’s team was extraordinary through the entire planning process. From my first initial correspondence to the hundreds after, I couldn’t feel more at ease with a wedding vendor. When we first started the catering inquiry we were working with Jessica but during the planning process she moved on and we started working with Meghan. This is the part where some brides might freak out but due to the professionalism of the team, we didn’t notice the transition. It was THAT smooth. We decided on an “around the world” stations menu. My husband and I wanted to showcase some of the favorites from our cultural backgrounds, and Giuseppe was the perfect person to create and execute our wedding menu. We started with five hors d’oeuvres, a sit down salad course and three stations. Everything was absolutely phenomenal! We even received inquiries on when, where, how our guests could buy the coffee Giuseppe served at the wedding! How many people do you know have been asked about the coffee at their wedding?!?! Even from non-coffee drinkers!

Now, this all might sound like it falls in the more expensive price range, but let me assure you, Giuseppe will work with any budget. He is dedicated to serving the best food and his commitment to making a memorable experience is one to be admired. He is committed to providing his clientele with the best food and service, and seems to accommodate all who want to work with him and appreciate his passion for dining. He's the best!

Giuseppe and Jessica were wonderful and easy to work with! Giuseppe personally met with Robert and I to get a feel for the kind of menu we were looking for worked with us until we nailed it. Jessica was so helpful and always got back to us right away...which is so refreshing when so many vendors leave you hanging! In the end, our guests raved and we were so happy with the quality and taste! ps~ If you like short ribs...make sure you include them...they were awesome!

Wedding food is a difficult task and tough for people who don't love things to be mass produced...but you don't really have a choice when you are serving 200 people for a sit down dinner! Giuseppe has been in the business for many years and knows his california/itialian cuisine and execution of serving. Choosing the menu was the most difficult part for us...we are foodies and wanted something unique and delicious. At first, it felt like Giuseppe was trying to be a bit controlling when choosing menu items, but once we explained and pushed a bit, he was a more flexible and it all worked out. The apps were my favorite part :) Once you finalize the menu, it is executed with Jessica as the lead, and she is absolutely AMAZING! So sweet and dependable, you know everything is going to work out with her around. They were also great with the bar menu and created a signature cocktail for us that was a hit!

We cannot say enough about how excellent Giuseppe was! We are avid foodies, and food is very important to us. We sat down with Giuseppe at his outdoor cafe in La Jolla and had delicious snacks and wine as he thought up the perfect menu for us. It was executed beautifully! And service was incredible all night long! Highly recommend!

Guiseppe is a very friendly and wonderful vendor. What's more, he was willing to work with us to make our affair a Mexico meats California menu. He was so very creative with the food, and it was so good. While dinner was a little late, it did not really disrupt the wedding and was not a big problem. His service staff was so friendly and wonderful. Giuseppe makes fantastic food. I can't tell you how many compliments we got on the food.

We were so happy we had Giuseppe cater our wedding! Not only was the food incredibly delicious, and personalized, but the service was beyond expectations! All of our guests were wowed by the amazing attentiveness timing etc. of the service, and lots of my girlfriends commented on how good looking the wait staff was, no joke! As to be expected from Giuseppe, the food was divine. It took us right back to visits to Italy. We loved working with hem on the menu and the final product was a beautiful and delicious culinary sensation. Starting with tray passed hors d'oeuvres for cocktail hour, delicious salad, dual plated entree served, and the late night snack! In between, we used Extraordinary Desserts and did a Gelato Bar from Coronado Nado Gelato.

Go eat the Museum Cafe at the Contemporary Art Museum in La Jolla to give Giuseppe a whirl, you will not be disappointed. Hopefully you'll be lucky enough to work with Frederick also, we can not say enough good things about him!

I can't say enough about Giuseppe and his entire Staff! I enjoyed working with him from day one! He has great ideas and such passion for what he does it was easy for me to feel completely confident. I didn't have a wedding planner, so Giuseppe really helped with a lot of the ideas, concepts and coordination. The food turned out amazing, our guests still comment on how great everything was...especially the poached pear salad!! The table service was all done in unison which gave an additional professional touch to the entire event. I would strongly recommend Giuseppe catering to anyone planning a wedding or his restaurants for a delicious and relaxing lunch!
