We were so thrilled with our daughter's wedding at Lucarelli's. They really know how to make an event flow well. You can tell how important it is to Mike and the staff to make it perfect. It's obviously not just a job to them. The room was beautiful,spacious and comfortable. They was it's set up is perfect for having a large event. The food was out of this world. Every item was wonderful. We ordered the bananas foster and the espresso bar to be served with the cake and the cookies the family brought. They had them behind a curtain after dinner and when they opened the curtain to reveal it the chef had the bananas foster flaming in the pan. It was so special, everyone loved it. Also the prices at Lucarelli's are amazing reasonable.

Lucarelli's was amazing! From the day we booked them we knew we were in good hands. The entire staff made us feel extremely comfortable. I didn't have to worry about a single thing on my wedding day, because I knew they were going to take care of everything, and they did! My guests are still raving about the food and the amazing atmosphere.

I just had my bridal shower here, the brunch food was ok, the room was wonderful, at the end the server gave my mother a bill for way more than the amount of people who attended, I did not even invite that many people. I showed her the envelopes I had each guest fill out there to show I only had a certain amount of people. The server said that means nothing to her and was extremely rude. I asked for the manager, they told us they've been doing this 6 years they know how to count, she then called my mother in law a liar which upset her so much. So we paid to avoid further conferntation, the next day we then found out she gave us the wrong bill, charged us for dinner which is a lot more, and for more people. I hope they feel really stupid for making my parents so upset and accusing us of lying when they were giving us the wrong bill. I had a great time with my firends and family at my shower but that certainly ruined the rest of my day!!!

Lucarellis provided catering for my wedding at Shea's Performing Arts. We had an extremely positive experience working with the wonderful people at Lucarellis! The appetizers were delicious and had a beautiful display! Due to the fact that my venue did not have a kitchen, Lucarellis brought portable kitchens with them. The food was warm and we received many compliments on how tasty the meal was! My husband and I were thrilled with the service as well! Each waitress had a huge smile on their face and were excited to share in our big day! I cannot say enough about the food and service and I would highly recommend Lucarellis to other brides to cater their wedding! Thank you for taking part in our wedding day! You are appreciated!

I cannot say enough great things about Mike and all of the staff at Lucarelli's. My bridal shower was at Lucarelli's and my wedding was catered by them at another venue. Linda was always easy to get a hold of and very pleasant to deal with. Mike knew exactly what we were looking for and delivered it. The price for both events was beyond reasonable and the quality of food was excellent. The servers at both events were extremely professional and accommodating.Not only would I recommend using them, I know my family will definitely use them again in the future. Lucarelli's has definitely gained life-long customers!

This was one of the best decisions I made when planning my wedding! Lucarelli's was not only a gorgeous venue but the food was amazing and the office staff was unbelievably helpful with the millions of questions I had for them. Mike Lucarelli is very accommodating and they really go the extra mile to make sure the bride and groom are happy every step of the way. When we chose our menu, we picked the roasted potatoes as our side but I told Mike that the groom was really hoping for mashed potatoes because he loves them. The day of the wedding, the server brought a big bowl of mashed potatoes just for my husband!!!! He was completely surprised and couldn't stop smiling! This is just one example of how amazing Mike Lucarelli and his staff are! Our reception was in the Piazza Room and I would highly recommend that room to everyone because the layout is perfect and the high rise tables for cocktail hour stay in place for after dinner so guests can get up from their tables and still have some place to drink and chat between dancing!!!! Thank you for making our wedding day the best!

Fantastic. Mike was very accommodating every time we met with him. He listened to us and was the only person we met who did not laugh at the idea of our outdoor ceremony in January. We had offsite catering but it was cooked in their mobile kitchen right outside of our venue, and everybody loved the food. Great staff, they set up all of our tables and decorations for us, and treated us very respectfully. Great bar value!

Lucarelli's went above and beyond for my husband and I for our wedding day. Not only did they let us come in and decorate our room the day before the wedding, but they also made a special vegan meal for my friend and they also made mashed potatoes special for my husbands grandmother who was just craving them.. They were flexible and responsive and I would recommend them to anyone!

My wedding was at Lucarelli's on August 17th, 2012. It was everything I could have ever dreamt it would be, plus more. When my husband & I walked into the room it took my breath away, Lucarelli's had captured everything I had envisioned. My guest raved about the mouth watering steak & they couldn't stop talking about the chicken wellington. They told my husband & me, that our wedding was the most beautiful wedding they have ever gone to & the hors d'oeuvre hour was outstanding. The staff was definitely on top of their game. Anything my guest or I needed they catered to every need. The way they set up & take the time to care about each detail was out of this world. I can't thank Mike & his staff enough. You definitely make fairy tales come true 

The only thing that was missed by some of my guests wasthe Flambé station. Something that would prevent the delicious station from being missed would be to have a server at this station or having the DJ announce it.

We also had sandwich platters brought out around 10pm. Not many guests were hungry at this time. Instead of leaving them, workers came and put them back in kitchen. My sister had to ask a staff member to put them back out for the guests and all the guests ate them by the end of the evening.

Other than that everything was awesome! Thank you so much for making our wedding perfect!

I had my wedding there last Friday. I loved Mike! He was very nice professional and understanding. I felt like I was family from him. My only issues I have with the venue is that my florist had an issue with getting back her centerpiece glassware I rented from her to cut some costs down. The staff have her a hard time when she went to get everything back. And at the end of the night while staff was picking up. They picked up things that people were saving and still dancing and when they got back to table everything was gone. Other then those issues everything was great. I'm
Still getting feedback on how good the food was. I also would like to compliment Linda on her service to me. She was very helpful with confirming all of the vendors. Even the photo booth vendor I used who was very delayed in returning my calls. Got back to me as soon as she made a phone call. All in all I would recommend lucarellis to my friends and family for any event.

Having my reception at Lucarelli's is what made the event so memorable, the food was amazing, the service was amazing, the decor was amazing. The staff was very helpful day of and even before the event they were available to answer questions and make suggestions. They made my day worry free and everything went seamlessly. They even went out of the way to insure that guests with any food allergies could still enjoy their meals. At one meeting I had mentioned that my fiancé really only ate chicken fingers French fries and corn, once dinner started that's exactly what was served to him. The attention to detail really makes you feel so special! I'm already planning on holding future events there.

We had Lucarelli's cater our wedding at the Buffalo Botanical Gardens. Of the catering options that the Gardens provided us with, Lucarelli's was not only the most reasonably priced, but offered the most for your money. They were also the only company we looked at to include china and linens in the per person cost, rather than charge extra for it. Since the wedding, we have had so many people comment to us about how great the food was! From day one, they were very professional and helpful. We scheduled several meetings with them, and each time we met with the owner, Mike Lucarelli. He was very nice and easy to work with. He was not only concerned with making the food taste good, but making sure that the presentation was nice as well. The day of the wedding, everything tasted and looked amazing! The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful. My husband and I were drinking wine during the reception, and we heard that they ran out of the wine we were drinking so they sent someone back to Lucarelli's to get more. We could not have been more pleased with our catering and bar service and would definitely recommend them to anyone!

This isn't the first venue that we have planned with Lucarelli's... we have done many events there, and need we say more??? They did a great job on everything. We had a wonderful hor d'oeuvres (cocktail) hour... I suggested a pasta station for cocktail hour and they sure did deliver! it was their first time doing that during a cocktail hour and we are sure it won't be their last! Everyone raved about it, they kept going back and forth (we had it outside and inside) and saying "this is excellent". Their food is excellent as always. We would recommend Lucarelli's to anyone, as we always do.

Lucarelli's was actually not where we had originally booked our reception. I contacted them after our first venue closed suddenly.
They honored our contract and price from the other venue and offered many more things for our money. They were very accomdating even up to the day of our wedding.
The room was gorgeous, the service was exceptional and the food delicious. We received so many compliments about the reception. In the end it was the perfect choice.

I would highly recommend Lucarelli's to anyone.

We used Lucarelli's off site catering. We did there stations dinner set up and an open bar. We had prime rib, roasted turkey, a potatoe bar, live pasta station, salad bar, and coffee bar. The food was absolutely amazing. They arrived even before we did to get the tables dressing and set. When we were done with our ceremony one of there bartenders were right there to get us drinks if we wanted them. They were very professional, but were friendly enough that they just seemed like more of our friends. I would choose Lucarelli's again for any catered event I may plan!

Lucarelli's was a huge reason that our wedding went off without a hitch. We did not use their facilities but instead had Lucarelli's cater the wedding off-site. They were prompt, had everything set up perfectly and the food was delicious! We had a buffet for about 200 people and everyone raved about the food and the excellent service. Mike Lucarelli was very responsive as was Linda who was in practically constant contact with my Mother dealing with logistics! Overall I would highly recommend Lucarelli's for anybody who wants delicious food at a reasonable price!

After searching literally every catering company that came up on googlemaps for western new york, we finally decided on Lucarelli's because 1- they were flexible (in price, in food choices), 2- Mike Lucarelli was sooo nice, 3- they have a "portable" kitchen. Our reception was at Shea's Performing Arts Center, which doesn't have a kitchen or even a microwave, so our choices were to either have the food delivered in warming boxes from a caterer, or have it cooked on site. Lucarelli's brought their truck which has a kitchen inside, so all the food was hot and delicious. Mike upgraded us to the filet for free even though he had already given us a discount from their package prices. Everything was great and looked nice, the staff was attentive, and Mike was great to work with. We had a dual-entry. On each plate was: stuffed chicken, filet mignon, green beans, twice baked potato. They set up coffee and appetizers, and let us bring our own cookies and desserts which they set up for us. I highly recommend them. Their food fit the "classyness" standard for having a reception at Shea's.

I actually had my shower at Lucarelli's, not my wedding reception but it was so nice I wanted to write a review. We opted for a brunch on a Saturday in August. Even though they were booked solid for weddings that night and had a funeral brunch the same morning, they were able to accommodate us and did so without making us feel rushed. We were in the Garden Room, which is the perfect setup for a brunch. We had about 35 people, but the room could've fit at least fifty. There is a smaller room attached where they placed the food items and beverages. There was coffee and pastries set out as guests arrived and the food followed shortly thereafter. We were able to choose a good selection of breakfast and lunch items and everything was delicious. The attached room was great because it allowed the flow of people to move through in an orderly fashion. The food was delicious and the Garden room was quite convenient. Due to it's location at the front of the Banquet Center, we were able to take gifts right out to the front door were the car was parked, saving time and energy.

The Banquet Manager was also fantastic. My sister/matron of honor lives in VA and was able to get information and plans set up over the phone and they were very flexible with her as far as things that needed to be handled in person. Also, I had three (!!) cousins who were pregnant and due within a week of the shower so we were unsure if they would make it or not. The manager allowed us to leave them off the total count so we would not be charged if they could not attend. On the day, two of the three did attend and they still did not make us pay for the additional guests, despite our offer to do so. The staff assigned to our shower kept everything on schedule without making us feel rushed or inconvenienced. I was very pleased overall with the accommodations.
