We used Popolo's Catering and Coordination services for our wedding and we could not have been more pleased. The food was great and reasonably priced enough that we could afford some extras, like appetizers and extra sides, that would have been out of reach with other caterers. Their online menu was so convenient for figuring out exactly what food and services we wanted and getting a straightforward quote. They were really flexible and provided a bartender to serve the alcohol we purchased, worked with us when we wanted to buy linens instead of rent them, and they fit flawlessly into our unconventional venue. Abby, Leon and the whole Popolo's team were so professional and friendly and we were so glad to have them to walk us through the process.

We also took advantage of their Day-of-Coordination service, which was a fantastic deal and hands-down the best $500 we spent on our wedding. I was nervous about 'handing over' the wedding to some professional who might not 'get' the vibe we were trying to create, but Abby was so down-to-earth and friendly, she knew exactly what she was doing, and she worked her tail off to make the wedding go smoothly. Our wedding was very DIY, so it was great that we could always call Abby when we needed pro advice on what rentals to order, or how to organize the floorplan, etc. The wedding day threw us a few curveballs (surprise venue construction =rearranging the whole floor plan at the last minute! ) and Abby handled everything with ease- I didn't have to worry about a thing. I almost cried when I walked into the reception and saw how she had made everything look even prettier than my expectations. What can I say? Abby is like a very hip fairy godmother. I will always be grateful to Abby and Popolo's for everything they did to give us the most magical wedding imaginable and create an awesome experience for our guests.

Popolo catered our wedding in Avila Beach this past May. Leon and the rest of the staff were wonderful to work with--everyone we dealt with was super friendly, had great suggestions, and was happy to answer all of our questions. The food at the wedding was delicious and the service was superb. We were so happy we went with Popolo!

We are very glad that we went with Popolo Catering for our wedding day! They provided excellent service through setting out the place settings, serving the guests on the buffet line, and clearing off the tables. Popolo catering arrived early and stayed until everything was taken care of. We rented our glass plates and water glasses from them which were excellent quality and also used their beverage station service which was always fully stocked. Chef Leon personally served us our first meal as husband and wife which was extra special. We really liked that they could create literally any food menu that you could possibly want and the options were limitless. We opted for the pasta bar complete with 3 types of pasta, bread and salad.

Popolo (and Leon the owner) were fabulous from beginning to end. We had a santa maria bbq style buffet and it was AMAZING. The guests absolutely RAVED about the food..I know some people may think bbq and buffet may not be the fanciest, but honestly the meal was definitely one of the highlights of our wedding. Leon and his staff were so easy to work with, and not only provided the food but the linens, tableware and bartenders as well. I could not give a more glowing review of Popolo and would highly recommend them!

I was referred to Popolo by a friend who used them for her wedding. When we went in for our food tasting we expressed our dissatisfaction of the venue we were going to have our wedding at. It was Leon and Illeana who told us about a few other venues and even took the time to take us to the venues after our food tasting. We ended up going with another venue and we were beyond delighted to have been introduced to our dream location. They spent so much time with us in listening to our vision and they drove us right to it! We booked it and planning began.

I haven't even gotten to their amazing food yet!!

Ok, so we were blown away at the food at the tasting. We even requested them boxing up left over food and sending it our way because it was beyond delicious and the portions could feed a small village. Unbelievable taste. So good we even booked them to cater our rehearsal dinner as well!

The staff is beyond friendly. Extremely courteous and respectful. They even came all the way out to where the bridal party was taking pictures during cocktail hour so we all could eat some appetizers as well. I thought that was very thoughtful and very much needed since we were all so hungry.

Leon made it a point to serve my husband and I our first meal as husband and wife and it was so touching and from the heart that I got emotional (again)

My husband and I were engaged for 22 months. That is a LONG time to be planning a wedding and Illiana and Tracey spent all the time I needed to get my ongoing changing mind/plans all settled and taken care of. They worked diligently for me and made me feel like I was their only client.

My words alone cannot express how much I appreciate Popolo Catering. Best caterer ever!

Our first experience with Popolo's was from one of our friend's weddings that had Popolo's as their caterer. The food was great, and we went back for seconds at their wedding. When it came time to our wedding we went and had a consultation with Leon. From the moment we sat at the table during our consultation to the day after our wedding, Popolo's remained highly professional and responsible, but also they were always positive and friendly. Leon and his crew had constant communication with us throughout our planning process, even when we changed the menu on them several times and also increased our people count by 70 more people! On the day of the wedding, Popolo's exceeded our expectations. They were timely and thorough, and also helped above and beyond to ensure our wedding day went as smoothly as possible - this included even helping us set up our dessert table when our cake vendor was late! Not only that, they were a part of our wedding day, talking with guests to ensure that everyone was pleased. Popolo's is passionate about their food and service, and also passionate about making one's wedding a joyous (and delicious!) experience for all, making sure that lasting relationships come out of it! Thank you so much to Leon, Iliana, Tracy and the rest of the crew that made our day so much better! I can't thank you enough and I hope that everyone looking for a great caterer will highly consider Popolo's!

Leon and Iliana were the best! As a bride, I didn't have to worry about ANYTHING regarding the food & service. The food was fantastic and Leon's staff was very very professional and helpful! I would hire them in a heartbeat for any future functions.
