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.

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.

Thank you for an amazing wedding day on Saturday! We loved working with you and having you and your team there for our big day!! It's so awesome to have someone as talented as you be part of everything. You went out of your way not only to make us feel comfortable on Saturday but all the weeks leading up to the wedding. From morning to night, it was honestly a fairytale and a dream come true for us!!!

Everyone has been commenting at how delicious the food was, and how beautifully it was presented. The dinner was absolutely delicious and people have been raving about the filet. We were especially thrilled with the dessert table selections and the biscotti!!!

Rania and her staff were fantastic! She walked us through the entire process and made sure everything was organized. I didn't have to worry about anything because Rania had taken care of it all. The floor manager, Cindy, was awesome. She kept me calm and made sure every detail was just right. And the food... absolutely delicious! I can't say enough good things about Rania's. They are the best!

Rania recently catered our wedding which was held at The Barn at Fallingwater. Although we loved the venue, the two big challenges with the venue are: 1) the remote location and, 2) the lack of a full kitchen. We spoke with a number of caterers but ultimately decided to go with Rania’s Catering because she seemed to have a lot of experience working with our venue and she was very upfront about what we should and shouldn’t do. (I was a little wary of caterers that agreed to everything we wanted, especially if they had never done it before.)

Planning: Rania was very hands on throughout the planning process. She laid out a planning time-line, stuck to it and she responded to my questions promptly. I know she has a number of clients that she’s juggling at once, but I never felt as though her level of service suffered at all.
Food: I received a number of compliments from our guests about the quality of the food. When we came for our tasting I thought the meals were delicious and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the meals on our wedding day were of the same quality.

Day-of: Rania had sent out a day of schedule before the event and our floor manager, Cyndi Bruce did a great job of coordinating everything and sticking to the schedule. Given the complexity of planning a wedding, there are certainly going to be some things that go wrong. If anything went wrong on our day, I wouldn’t have known. If you’re planning on having a day-of coordinator, I would say you could forego that expense as Rania’s staff handles everything.

Bottom-line: I would recommend Rania to anyone holding an event in western Pennsylvania. Of all the weddings that I’ve been to I always remember those at which the food was really good or really bad. Having said that, you would be doing your guests a favor by having Rania cater your event.

We loved working with Rania! She was the consummate professional and she handled everything beautifully! We were not interested in planning every aspect of our wedding. It was enough for us to choose the venue and the color of the linens. We left a lot to Rania's discretion and were not disappointed! She reassured us that all we needed to do was show up and she was right. It was an absolutely gorgeous event!
If you know what you want she will execute your plans flawlessly. If you are unsure of what you want, as we were, you can rely in her expertise in planning the perfect event.

Rania Harris and her team at Rania's Catering were impeccable! My husband and I recently tied the knot at the gorgeous Frick Art Museum & Historical Center in the Point Breeze neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Our day was perfect…and 95% of that perfection came from Rania and her staff. From the beginning, Rania was so helpful and kind. Her reputation in Pittsburgh is fantastic and I have no doubt it is because she treats every client like they are the only person she is working with. Like many brides, I was trying to please everyone, but it wasn't until Rania, turned to me at one meeting and reminded me that this was our day. That brief moment probably didn't seem like much to Rania, but for a stressed out bride, it meant a lot.

Our reception consisted of a one hour cocktail service followed by a cocktail buffet dinner. The food was to die for…my only regret is that I didn't eat more! Rania's pastry crew were responsible for the four tier burnt almond torte cake as well as a special ice-cream groom's cake for my husband. Everyone couldn't stop raving about the food…and the cake!!!

I would highly recommend Rania and her incredible staff to any couple who wants their day to be beautiful and delicious! THANK YOU RANIA!!!

Rania went above and beyond to make our day memorable. She could not have been more enjoyable to work with. She has a rich understanding of all of the Pittsburgh event spaces, in addition to the vendors, which makes the planning process very easy. Her food is incredible! We received countless compliments on the appetizers and the entrees, which was impressive considering she was cooking filet and crab cakes for 270+ people! The meat was cooked perfectly. Her floor managers were awesome and took care of every detail, which allowed me to be stress-free during the reception. The staff is incredibly professional and made the evening run smoothly. If I could give her more than five stars, I would. Rania was most definitely the reason why we had a perfect wedding day!
