My fiance and I met with Rania to begin planning our catering for an outdoor, rustic barn wedding. She was so fabulous and knowledgeable, I felt like I was meeting with a wedding planner rather than a caterer. We were having some trouble staying under our budget at this particular venue (with rentals, etc) and she was willing to do anything to she could to help us on that front. She even called several different venues to ask about availability for our date in case we wanted to change venues to cut our costs. Rania even called me a few times while she was on vacation to check in a see how I was doing. She understands the anxiety and stress that many brides have in the planning process and she really helped to alleviate it. I haven't yet tried Rania's catering, but she did treat us to lunch at her restaurant in Mt. Lebanon during our first meeting with her and the food was phenomenal! I can't imagine her catering would be any different. I would recommend Rania to absolutely anyone.

Rania catered our son's wedding at the Frick Art and Historical Society. She and her staff provided friendly, exceptional service and awesome food to
delight us and our guests, who wanted to know who the caterer was. We had guests with special food requirements, and she met them all. A guest who
normally will not eat out due to her severe allergies felt comfortable to eat after Rania's precautions. It warmed our hearts. Rania went beyond the call of
duty, as she herself laid artificial grass on soggy rain soaked ground so our guests would be comfortable. I cannot recommend her highly enough for her
delicious food, professionalism and human caring!

Rania and her team are truly incredible. She helped me plan for my day at the Frick Art and Historical Center, and she also acted as the day of coordinator in addition to providing her catering services. Rania is very friendly,
professional, organized, and she also has great taste. She knew exactly how to achieve the vintage chic look that I was going for with my wedding. On the day of the event, I was left in awe at how professional and organized her entire team was. Not only did she carry out my vision, but she also kept the night running smoothly. Most importantly, her food was the best wedding food I've ever had, and I know the guests agreed! The main course was perfectly done, and the dessert table was a huge hit. It was almost entirely cleared by the end of the night. We chose not to serve our cake, but the cake was so good! Most wedding cakes are dry and not very tasty, but Rania's was moist and delicious - the best I've had. Overall, I could not be happier with Rania's services. I highly recommend her. She will not disappoint!

Rania was amazing, and she made our dream wedding come to life! She was professional, and went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding was perfection. She acted not only as the caterer, but as the wedding planner as well! She arranged everything from the linen, the cake, the decor, the food, the tables, the tent, and all of the little details that no bride or groom would have ever thought about. We couldn't have asked to work with such a better person. She was attentive to every detail, and was extremely organized so that things ran smoothly. I think one of her biggest attributes, was that she was honest throughout the whole process, and we truly appreciated that. She was realistic as well especially when it came to cost and budgeting. We would not have had the wedding that we did without her. She was truly a blessing to work with, and kudos to her and her team for making our dream wedding come true!

It was a pleasure working with Rania for my daughter's wedding. She made planning our reception very easy. She does it all from choosing place settings to menu planning. The hors dourves were plentiful, the salads extremely fresh and the main courses were delicious. My daughter wanted a "naked" wedding cake and her baker did a beautiful job. The wait staff was excellent and our floor manager Kelly was the best, I was able to enjoy the evening without a care. All emails are answered in a timely manner I didn't find that to be the case with all vendors. I have no reservation in strongly recommending Rania's for any large event.

Rania's was wonderful to work with in planning the wedding. They were very helpful with every call we made and they usually answered the phone the first time we called, otherwise they got back to us right away. They had a great vision that was consistent with what we were trying to execute and when the day came everything was smooth, professional and beautiful. The staff were so friendly, kind and professional. The food was absolutely delicious. We had a last minute need for more chair cushions and Rania's was able to help us navigate the issue to get more quickly. We were very happy with Rania's on all levels of our wedding and I highly recommend them if you are planning your wedding. They deliver!!

Food was excellent, cake was excellent, staff was excellent! The floor manager took care of all the details on our wedding day and made sure myself (bride) and my husband were well taken care of all night. Rania is very thorough, paid particular attention to each detail and created a stress-free day for me. She was easy to work with over the months of planning. I would highly recommend Rania and her staff.

From the first moment we met Rania, we knew she was the one we wanted to cater our wedding. She was professional, friendly, up-beat, knowledgeable and organized.

She was willing to design a menu that incorporated our wishes. She even had a Romanian dish prepared from scratch (from a receipe we found on the internet). Rania definitely knows food and knows what works well together in a wedding setting.

Due to our wedding location, Rania not only had to provide/prepare the food, but she also had to coordinate all rentals (tables, chairs, linens, etc.) ~ no small job, but everything was perfect.

Rania did an excellent job keeping in touch with us as things progressed (and was quick to respond to any questions from us). She provided a tracking tool to assist in monitoring the food selections from our wedding guests. A day or two before the wedding, she sent a detailed e-mail to all vendors involved outlining the day and what was to happen.

Rania was open to change (things were not set in stone on day one). At the tasting, we decided to significantly change one dish and the change was graciously accepted by Rania and her staff.

On the wedding day, the food was delicious. Numerous guests commented on the asparagus salad, saying it was the best dressing they had ever tasted. The staff was amazing. All servers were well dressed and extremely friendly. The seated dinner was served in a timely fashion. The cake, also prepared by Rania's pastry chef, was both beautiful and delicious.

I can't say how happy we were with everything done by Rania and her staff. I would highly recommend her to any bride & groom.

Rania provided the catering for our daughter's wedding, and we relied on her and her team to
handle all of the details, table settings, food, bar service, even the cake. From the very first meeting,
Rania was personally involved in all of the details. The options for food choices were endless, we eventually
chose a decidedly "different menu" than most wedding fare, including a "Pittsburgh Station" for our out of town guests (pierogies, keilbassa, potato pancakes, chipped ham sliders)! The food was fantastic, served hot and on time, the wait staff was professional and flawless. Its been two weeks since the wedding and I am still getting calls and emails about how wonderful the food was.
