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!

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.
