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!

We would like to thank Iliana and Leon from Popolo. They catered our wedding and it was amazing.

Popolo was recommended to us by a friend, it was the best advice we got when planning our wedding.
Leon met with us several times before the wedding. We met twice to see the venue, make sure we liked where Leon suggested we set the food. He made this entire process easy and perfect for everyone to get their food quickly and efficiently.
We also met for a food tasting, which was just incredibly yummy. Everyone we have talked to after the wedding, remembers how amazing the food was at the wedding. They also mention how polite and professional the servers were to everyone, when serving and picking up at the end of the night.

We can not say enough Thanks Yous to Popolo for making our Day extra special and making it run so smoothly concerning the catering.

We used Popolo to cater our wedding in September 2013. It was a great experience from beginning to end. Leon and Iliana were great to work with. We sent a few emails back and forth and priced out a menu, then Leon invited us for a tasting. The food was excellent, actually the best of all the caterers that we tasted. It was then that we knew we had found our caterer.

Communication leading up to the big day was great and Iliana kept us very well informed and answered all our questions. On the day of all of the staff showed up on time and had very neat tidy appearance and were all very courteous, and even helped us with some of our last minute setup items.

We got served our meal while everyone else was in line. Everyone had plenty to eat and Popolo even packed us to go boxes to take to the hotel with us that night. We could not have asked for better service or food. All of our guests enjoyed their food and we got many compliments on how good everything was.

Everything about our interaction with Popolo was beyond our expectation and would highly recommend them for any large event.

We choose Popolo's to cater our wedding and I can’t say enough wonderful things about them!! From start to finish Leon and his staff were professional, helpful, and detail oriented. They went out of their way to quickly address and resolve every question or concern that came up and provided much needed advice to help us save money and help our day flow seamlessly. Not only that, but by the time our wedding was over, they felt like family. I even have a picture of Leon and my dad at our reception!!! Not to mention, their food is amazing! Their rotisserie chicken and BBQ tri tip are to die for, and their potatoes au gratin literally melt in your mouth. We have received numerous compliments from our guests about how incredible everything tasted!

Popolo catered our wedding at the Kaleidoscope Inn back in August and they did an AMAZING job. Delicious Tri-tip, cheesy potatoes, salad and grilled veggies, along with some great appetizers!

Illiana and Leon were great to work with and were upfront, helpful and just overall friendly and fun people. Their prices are some of the most reasonable out there, especially with the added bonus of getting their help and advice. They even threw in a cupcake tree for us to use!

We are so thankful that we found Popolo's, they really delivered on everything they promised and provided a great group that worked on our big day. After it was all over and we were about to head out, Illiana brought us a ton of leftovers to take with us as snacks and lunch the next day.

We definitely would recommended them to anyone getting married in the area or for any other event where you'd want some delicious food. They made us feel comfortable and were extremely helpful with great advice, even with things outside the realm of catering like setup, center pieces and decorating.

Thanks guys!

We met the owner in November and had a tasting with him. The food was AMAZING!! I couldn't stop raving about it! The day of the wedding though, the food wasn't exactly the same. The tri-tip and chicken were really good but the bread and salad which we had fallen in love with at the tasting weren't even close to what we were expecting. We had asked for the salad to have the nuts and the cheese on the side due to allergies. Not only were they in the salad, the dressing was pre mixed in! It was at least 100 degrees that day and by the time it was served, the salad was very wilted. Lastly, we had 15 people whom we had payed for their food not show up and we were not given the option to keep the leftovers. We were told later by the owner that people had come up for seconds and thirds and that is why there were no leftovers. I was informed later that one of our venue employees had to hurry to get to-go boxes for my husband and I to eat leftovers later that night (since we were staying there) because they were packing all the rest of the food away. There was obviously food left and since we had paid for the food, we should have been allowed to keep it.

My Wife and I were married on August 4th 2012, and we were lucky to have Leon Castillo and his family cater our special day.

The first time we met Leon, he greeted us warmly, fed us, and sent us home with what we eventually chose to serve our guests the day of our wedding. We received so many great comments from guests saying it was the best food they’d ever had at any wedding!

The Popolo staff exceeded our expectations and was the utmost professional in every aspect. The food was finger licking good and the staff worked hard to ensure our guests were taken care of. We had BBQ tri-tip, chicken, potatoes au gratin, veggies, mixed green salad and dinner rolls that definitely satisfied the tummy.

Popolo catering was amazing and went above and beyond to make our wedding day memorable. They even offered to light 80 candles for my Mom, which they didn’t have to do but did, allowing her to enjoy the reception. The buffet lines were set up beautifully and the staff served food to our guests with big smiles on their faces.

Hiring Popolo to cater our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. We have nothing but great things to say about Popolo. Thank you Leon and the crew for making our wedding so special!!

We have only great things to say about Leon and the Popolo crew!! Popolo was the first and last caterer we looked at. We knew right off the bat that they were going to be great. Popolo is a family run business and that makes all the difference. They work hard and everything is made from the heart. We hired popolo for our wedding and got rave reviews from all of our guests!! We served BBQ tri-tip, chicken, potatoes au gratin, chili beans, mixed green salad and garlic bread. The buffet line was set up beautifully and popolo staff served each food option!! The crew was awesome at their jobs and very professional. Leon and his wife Kathleen are such a pleasure to work with and definitely know what they're doing!! We would recommend them to everyone and anyone!! They treated us like family and we are forever grateful to popolo for making our wedding amazing!!

The crew was awesome at their jobs and very professional. Leon and his wife Kathleen are such a pleasure to work with and definitely know what they're doing!! We would recommend them to everyone and anyone!! They treated us like family and we are forever grateful to popolo for making our wedding amazing!! Read less

We chose Popolo's to cater our wedding because we knew we were going to get delicious food for a great price. We were very happy with the entire process. Leon (the owner) works hard to sell his food and we appreciated all that hard work on our wedding day.

Leon and his family at Popolo were a treat to work with. They provided appetizers, buffet and beverages. I did not require cake service since I served cupcakes so that is why it wasn't included, but I am sure they would have done an amazing job if I needed it! The food (at least what I'm told since we all know how much brides actually get to eat...) was delicious. His staff even made sure to come find my husband and I who were taking pictures to serve us appetizers! His staff all worked very hard, looked EXTREMELY professional and did a great job! We were sad Leon himself could not make it to our event as they are so high in demand right now, but his wife did an absolutely superb job! Also, his price could not be beaten and even gave us a discount for paying cash.

The only cunstructive feedback I have is that Leon is a very generous man and will offer you the moon and it really does come straight from his heart. However, he offers so much that it is easy to forget when it is not in the contract so ensure you have EVERYTHING you are expecting listed out with both of your signatures on it.

Popolo's service was excellent! Leon was wonderful from the moment we met him. We had several meetings in the restaurant and LOVED the food! Our appetizers were delicious...our friends and family are still raving about the food! We appreciate Popolo's professionalism and courtesy. They took care of everything - appetizers, the buffet, beverage station, cake service, and coffee bar! They even took care of the clean up. We highly recommend Popolo Rotissere Cafe...Leon will take care of everything!
