A great choice when planning your special event! I was lucky enough for the second time in a few months to help plan a holiday celebration for our individuals and their family & friends from SASi/Claddagh group homes, at Lucarelli's Banquets. Mike, Linda, Katie, Janis and the their whole team of staff go above and beyond to accommodate our very special guests. They are patient with our seating & dietary needs as many of our guests are part of the special needs community. They adjust as needed for us, right up until the eleventh hour, making sure everyone has a comfortable and enjoyable experience. They certainly make our jobs much easier as they are very flexible to on the spot changes. This year's St. Patrick's Day party was no exception. Food was served hot and of high quality! The cabbage was excellent!! Staff is always around and available for whatever may come up, as they always work quickly to rectify the situation. With Mike Lucarelli himself, coming out to say hello to all our guests, really a very personable man! We look forward to seeing Mike & his crew again in the near future, as our events we host at Lucarrelli's are always eagerly anticipated! I would highly recommend an event at this Southtown"s staple!

The staff a Lucarelli's could not have been more accommodating for our event! I thought the food was fantastic and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate the special dietary needs of several of our guest. Both of the owners personally greeted us and checked in to make sure that everything was going well. The room was beautiful and our 250+ guests had a fantastic time!

If you are reading any good reviews about this place, trust me - it's owners or family of Lucarelli's writing it. Last week (unfortunately Claddagh House chooses this dump to celebrate the holidays), we were served mangled gristle with bits of indescribable bits of meat attached. Nine people at the table and 5 slices of bread. At least we got bread instead of halved hot dog rolls this time. The cabbage had to have been reheated several times by the look of it. We could not eat this after spending a good amount of money. Dessert is packaged frozen laid out and a 1/4 cup of ice milk. If you wanted coffee, tea or soda you had to get it yourself after making your way through meandering, close tables. Did these owners ever think of hiring a chef? The food has always been garbage but now the service is even more terrible. Just when you think it can't get any worse, it does! Do not even think of this place - the health dept. should shut it down.

Let me just say theyre amazing and did an fantastic job. We had them cater the food at our wedding and I am so happy we did.
I have seen their work multiple times and knew I liked them a lot. Their food is always delicious and top notch and as people, they are so very kind and down to Earth.
We couldn't have asked for anyone better than Mike, Amanda and Katie. Every detail was taken care of and the staff was wonderful as well.
Thank you guys again! You made our day absolutely perfect.

We booked Lucarelli's for my Bridal Shower. We had a brunch buffet that included a carving station and it was well within our budget. We had the Abbott Room which was recently updated and comfortably fit 60 people. The room is divided so all F&B displays were separate from where we ate and did gifts and prizes. The room is beautiful and modern and could fit any type of theme/color scheme you want. Lucarelli's was very responsive and answered all our questions in a timely manner. The food was delicious and the staff was quick in getting food cleared and cake ready to be served quickly.

My only cons would be that they could use some polishing on their professionalism. They only do signed contracts for wedding events so some matters were in a gray area. IE- kids prices- had to pay full price for a 6 year old, cake/dessert station- had to provide our own paper products, new updated room meant we were restricted on how we could decorate the space- no hanging anything on walls. Also, the head server did not introduce herself or offer additional help if there was anything we needed. The service we received was efficient and my shower was a huge success, but knowing a name and an offer to "let me know if there is anything else we can do for you" is a comforting feeling.

We went with Lucarelli's as the caterer for our wedding at the Botanical Gardens, and could not be happier with our choice! They were professional, easy to work with, responsive to our requests, and the food was delicious! We strongly recommend them to anyone looking for great food!

We worked very closely with Mike, the owner, on the menu. We had some ideas of unusual things we wanted, and they were able to do everything! We had a family recipe we wanted, so Mike asked that we send it to them a few months beforehand so they could perfect it. And it came out amazing! We also wanted some different buffet selections, and he had suggestions for great food pairings that we went with and were fantastic!

We also worked very closely with Amanda, the manager, on how to best arrange things within the space at the Botanical Gardens. She and Mike both had suggestions based on what they had seen work well in the past (or not so well), and we were so happy we listened to them. They both helped us take the menu through multiple iterations so we wouldn't go over our budget, and had ideas on where to spend and where to cut back to get the optimal experience. We were so happy with what we got and what we spent!

The day of the wedding Amanda was on site to keep things moving efficiently and make sure it was exactly how we planned it - and it was! The servers, chefs, and staff that we worked with that night were all friendly and professional, and we got mullions of compliments on both the food and how smoothly it all went - which was all thanks to Lucarelli's! Plus, because they have a mobile kitchen all the food came out hot and fresh, because it was all freshly prepared on site.

They were easy to work with the whole time, Linda in the office always got back to our emails right away, and the fact that we were planning from out of town wasn't ever an issue because they had such a good handle on things.

And make sure you get the bananas foster - it is amazing!
