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!

Rania is absolutely the most wonderful Caterer I have ever has the pleasure of dealing with. This wedding was the wedding of my fourth daughter, so I have had plenty of previous experience with wedding planning. Rania was like having a Best Friend to assist every step of the way. She is always completely professional, and kind, even when dealing with what must seem like outrageous requests. And with the Bride and Groom living out of state, Rania made it a point to to intervene with other vendors to make sure their appointments could fit in to the Couple's busy schedules when they were here in Pittsburgh. The quality of her service, including the food, the Staff and the advise she offered evry step of the way, was far beyond excellent. After having Rania and her staff, I woould never work with anyone else. I can not begin to say enough about this wonderful Lady and her entire Staff. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Rania and her staff were absolutely wonderful! I really believe they are the best catering company to go with in the Pittsburgh area. I was planning my Pittsburgh wedding remotely from NYC and Rania was very flexible to my schedule on the weekends when I was in Pittsburgh and was very timely in getting back to my emails when I was in NYC. Rania helped to recommend other vendors, including our florist, linens, lighting and band, and I found everyone she recommended to be so professional and the best at what they did. She has a great network of vendors!
During the planning process Rania was able to provide answers to all of my questions and was so helpful with her suggestions and recommendations when I felt stuck and needed to make a decision. We customized our entire wedding menu and desert table all the way down to our bread baskets and coffee station and she really helped to guide us to choose the best options and menu for our guests. She is more than accommodating. When it got closer to the big day, she was there to help every step of the way to make it as easy of a process as possible which I was more than grateful for since those last few weeks are the most hectic! Two days before our wedding the forecast showed to be much colder than expected and she was able to secure heaters for underneath The Pennsylvanian rotunda and inside coat checks for our guests – she really thinks of all things at any stage of the wedding planning process and makes it happen!
I cannot speak more highly of the staff that worked during the wedding reception. The floor managers were always there to help guide me through the night and made sure that I had anything that I needed at all times. The bartenders and waiters were so friendly – everyone had a smile on their face!
I highly recommend Rania to everyone I know and can honestly say that you will be making the best decision if you go with her as your caterer - which you will come to see that she is so much more!

Rania catered our garden wedding reception. She was incredibly helpful with the organizational side of things. She helped us cut back on expenses by telling us where to buy paper products and the quantities we needed. Her staff was excellent: professional, courteous, helpful and friendly.

My husband and I had a pig roast/bbq. The vendor she used for the pig roast was outstanding. Rania supplied the side dishes. My friends, who are foodies, all remarked that the food was exceptionally good!

Incidentally, Rania and her staff were all completely gay-friendly. It was an all-around pleasure working with them and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Rania played a MAJOR key role in making our wedding day the perfect day that it was. She helped us plan almost aspect of our day, including so many things that we hadn't even thought of. She orchestrated with all of our other vendors to make sure that everyone was on the same page. We didn't have to do a single thing on the morning of the wedding because Rania and her staff did everything. We are still getting rave reviews about how amazing the food was. Even beyond the amazing meal was her awesome staff. They went out of their way to accommodate one of our physically disabled guests, not only bringing him his drinks and appetizers since he couldn't make his way to them, but also taking a minute to sit down and have a conversation with him. They made sure that no one ever had an empty glass or empty plate in front of them. We would choose Rania and her staff over any other catering company, hands down.

My daughter wanted to have a wedding that was not set in tradition and any idea that she had was carried out in such an elegant manner. The feedback from family and friends was incredible.

I highly recommend Rania's Catering for weddings. Rania helped us through the entire process. Our venue required that we bring in rentals; Rania helped us with this overwhelming process-from how many wine glasses we needed to our place settings- and was an extremely effective point person for coordinating all of the vendors. The day-of staff at Rania's were amazing. The food was delicious and every guest raved about what they ate, from the appetizers to the deserts and cake. I wouldn't go with any other caterer in Pittsburgh.
