If you want a 5 star meal planned expressly for you from the freshest, highest quality ingredients, prepared the day of your event by chefs retained for your event, Rania is the caterer for you. You will select from a huge menu of appetizers, salads, entrees and sides to create the banquet of your dreams. For our daughter's wedding, Rania created six freshly made, beautifully presented hot appetizers, passed by her pleasant servers during the cocktail hour. The meal we selected gave guests a choice from three entrees. Each entree was paired with freshly prepared sides chosen expressly for that entree alone. Additionly homemade chicken fingers, homemade mac and cheese and a fresh fruit cup were served to the children 10 and under. Absolutely every item was served at the peak of flavor. Nothing is kept in warmers. No embellished bag of salad. All meats, fruits,,vegetables were of the highest grade., nothing prepackaged or frozen. The wedding cake prepared for our couple was the most complicated one of a number of cakes they presented to her pastry chef. Without knowing which one our daughter liked best, the pastry chef suggested the very one that was her first choice. No shortcuts here.
Rania is friendly, unfazed, organized and very professional. She is excellent at helping to plan your banquet and organize your event and keeping all vendors and the family on the same page.
Our guests raved about the food. So many said it was the best food they ever had at any event! In fact, one guest who loves filet said that it was the best filet he ever tasted and he has enjoyed filet in many top restaurants.
Rania prices are at the higher end. But if you are able and interested in a uniquely fresh and exciting presentation Rania will not disappoint.

Rania is the best of the best, and I could never imagine recommending anyone else for your wedding caterer. After booking our venue, we explored the preferred caterers. I had a strong feeling we'd end up selecting Rania from the beginning. Her prices shocked me until I realized the difference between booking Rania versus another company. With Rania, you don't just get true homemade food (nothing frozen or pre-cooked) - you get Rania herself, and she is an absolute dynamo. She is someone who knows the wedding business like the back of her hand, and she doubles as your caterer and event planner/organizer. I'm still so impressed with how efficient she is with the amount of things she does in a day! Whenever I needed advice, she was easy to reach, very responsive, and extremely helpful. If I had an issue with another vendor, she even took it upon herself to contact them and settle it (this stunned my mother and I the first time she did it!). She made our floor plan, designed a very cool king's table for us, and organized all of our vendors a few days before! Rania's food is incomparable and *unbelievably* delicious. We had some dietary restrictions (many vegetarians), and my extremely picky husband, and she was sensitive to everyone. So many guests filled up on the amazing hors d'oeuvres before dinner, including myself! We had several guests tell us throughout the night it was the best wedding food they ever had, and I enthusiastically agree (and not just because it was my wedding - it was spectacular). I wasn't sure about our wedding cake selection because her pastry chef was going to do our wedding cake as well. So, I showed her pastry chef several peacock-themed cakes I liked. I was honestly surprised when she picked one of the most elaborate ones! The cake was stunning and scrumptious! The staff at our reception was also extremely pleasant and professional. I give Rania my highest of recommendations. You are in excellent and VERY capable hands with her.

We could not have made a better choice in Rania's Catering. Rania and her staff walked us through every aspect of planning our wedding and managed to make our day a dream come true. It was a truly a one stop shop as they guided us through securing a venue, a florist, and choosing a band. The personal service was unparalleled and Rania could not have been nicer.

I had a wedding shower in my home and wanted to be a guest! I couldn't have been happier with the service, professionalism and quality of the food. Everyone raved about how delicious everything was and multiple servings were had by all! The cake that Rania's baker made was more beautiful than the actual wedding cake and so delicious. What a treat to go into my kitchen when everyone left and not have a thing to do. i would never use any other caterer at any price. Thank you Rania and staff!!

When my husband and I started thinking about our wedding we decided the one thing that matter the most was food! We love eating!

After we looked at venues we decided on the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh because Rania was the caterer. Her reviews were outstanding and honestly they still don't do her justice.

She created the most unique personalized menu. Rania really listened to what we wanted. We picked our selections off the menu that she gives when you first meet her. She then offered amazing suggestions. For instance, our bread basket had corn muffins and zucchini bread which fit into the time of year. All of the entrees were ahhhmazing! Even the salad was special, with pumpkin seeds! We had chicken stuffed with sausage, prosciutto wrapped pork and a vegetarian goat cheese tart. Rania does vegetarian right! Our guests told us that our food was the best food they have ever had at a wedding!

And the staff! Our servers, bartenders, cooks and floor manager Linda were awesome! Honestly, they were GREAT!

Now for the dessert. Stuart was our pastry chef and boy did he deliver. We had cupcakes with a small one tier cake. He listened to what we wanted and still made beautiful creative adjustments. Our guests could not believe that our cupcakes weren't from a cupcake bakery. Stuart did an amazing job making everything beautiful but more importantly the cake and cupcakes were delicious!

Rania is very organized and upfront with everything. We received a package when we decided to use her as our caterer. She has a very nice letter which gives some estimated costs. Our menu was very involved and required more staff. Rania let us know this right away. Also, on your first meeting Rania helps with everything: picking linen colors, plates, glasses, tables, chairs, etc. By the time the meeting is complete you know the cost. Honestly, if the food is an important part of your wedding then Rania is the caterer to use!
