Toscana catered our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with our experience from start to finish! We had so much fun at our tasting and it was so easy to work with Cindy and Kevin to plan the menu and details of the wedding day. Many of our guests (including a chef from Chicago) made a point to tell us how good the food was! We also did a post-wedding brunch at the restaurant that everyone loved.

Cindy, the Catering Sales Manger for Toscana, and her staff did a amazing job during our wedding. She was a little slow to respond to our emails at times during planning but this was due to some staffing changes so we understood. She actually ended up coming to Hagley and running our event, even though she wasn't suppose to. But she stepped up and really did a great job. She made sure every thing went as planned and made sure I was aware of any changes during the evening. We chose to do passed hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour, a buffet dinner, and passed desserts later. From what I am hearing from my guests, the hors d'oeuvres were amazing and they never ran out. The buffet food was hot and delicous and the desserts were also just as we wanted (pumpkin cheese cake bites, apple crum budino, and smores). They even made sure my husband and I got some food and desserts to take home, it was a nice snack after the wedding. Toscana is one of the pricer caterers our there but they are so worth the extra money. I will definitely be recommending them!

We used Toscana Catering for our wedding and for a post wedding brunch. Firstly, the food was absolutely wonderful. Every bit of it. DELICIOUS. And, I cannot say enough good things about Cindy Berkowitz, the catering manager. She was so helpful in helping to choose a menu and orchestrating communication between the catering staff and the venue. It was helpful that Toscana is the exclusive caterer for our venue (Hagley Museum Soda House) and Cindy could help us make decisions about the details since she was familiar with what worked and didn't work with the space from trial and error of having been in the venue previously. Cindy was also wonderful in helping to choose a menu that catered to several different dietary restrictions with our guests and even sent out a detailed list of which foods were appropriate/safe for each of the dietary restrictions. My guests with food issues were thrilled to have such a detailed list of what they could eat.

Other fringe benefits included a free dinner out at Toscana. While they don't do tastings, they welcomed us to come in for a meal to try different items on the menu. They also provided us for free brunch the day after.

We had wanted to host a Sunday brunch the morning after our wedding and we decided to stick with Toscana to cater it. Because we had a sizable number of guests, they offered to open up their sister restaurant Deep Blue to accommodate our guests. It was especially nice to have the space of the entire restaurant and the privacy of the venue with only my guests there. Deep Blue was also in wonderful proximity to the 2 hotels our guest were staying (Sheraton Suites Downtown Wilmington and Hotel DuPont). The food, again, was phenomenal.

The only downside of my whole experience was the slightly higher price point. It is not that the value of the service and the food wasn't on par with the price, but it was a little more than we had hoped to spend on catering.

We had Toscana cater our wedding and we couldn't be happier. The food was excellent, and the service was incredible! All of the staff was extremely professional and fast. I don't think any of our guests went a second without a drink in their hands. They even thought to run some hors d'oeurves to us before the pictures started, and made up plates for my husband and I to make sure we ate. (We had stations and were being pulled in 47 different directions, so trust me, if they hadn't have done that, we wouldn't have.) Their catering sales manager was extremely helpful and patient with us, too! I highly recommend.

Erica Razze was the person I worked with at the beginning of the process, and then Cindy Berkowitz took over. Erica was wonderful to work with-- very quick in her responses! She was wonderful in offering suggestions on what to choose off the menu and explained every aspect of the contract to us. Our engagement was 20 months long, so when a change in duties occurred, I really appreciated an email explaining to us the shift in command. Erica was still our on-site caterer in charge & handled everything superbly!

Cindy was great at honoring what Erica and I discussed in the contract, and I didn't have to start from scratch in explaining everything. She took it upon herself to look everything over, which was a major plus. She was also very flexible when we quickly learned that our guest count was going to be significantly lower than what we were anticipating, which saved us a considerable amount of money!

The food was AMMMMMMMAAAAAAZZZZZING! I was a little afraid that the meals wouldn't taste the same as our tastings were, since the meals were reproduced on a much larger scale. But the quality wasn't lowered at all, and it seemed that the meals were even better! All of our guests raved about the food, so I'm thrilled with that. It was important to us that everyone left with a good impression of the food, and I think that was achieved. :-)

We were married at Bellevue Hall on June 9th. Since we were required to hire a caterer from the list, we set up a tasting with Toscana. The company was making a transition in their catering management due to their increase in staff, so it took a few weeks to get a contact set up and tasting scheduled. We worked with Erika who was great. We had our tasting and were very impressed at the tasting. Throughout the planning process Erika and her coworker Cindy were pretty helpful (although it was tough to catch them in the office by calling sometimes). When the wedding day came and went, everyone was very professional, the food was good (delicious chicken and vegetarian dish, steak was not well received by the guests), and they did a good job with dessert and passing the hours de vours during cocktail hour. The servers they brought were great, very helpful and sweet! We had a day of coordinator (Christine) who came into the gig late in the game, but did very well for having only a little bit of time to finalize the event set up instructions and what not, we really appreciated her hard work, since everything came together beautifully!!! Having worked in catering, it was clear they worked very hard to make our wedding great. Thanks Toscana!

We continue to get compliments and rave reviews about the food at our wedding. It was so delicious (and yes we ate dinner on our wedding day). We also some how got a take home container of all the items as well and enjoyed it the day after, still amazing. Erica was absolutely amazing during the event. She was a lot of fun and had everything under control without being frazzled.

**BRIDES GETTING MARRIED IN DELAWARE, PAY ATTENTION!!** We hired Toscana to cater our wedding at the Bellevue Mansion. BEST decision we made! All the great reviews about the food are true. It's been 2 weeks, people are still telling me how good the food was. And all the good reviews of Erica Razze, the catering director, are true. She was absolutely wonderful. Of all the tastings we went to, Erica was the only one who sat down with us for each sampling and took notes. She offered so many ideas not just about food, but also about tents, set-up, etc. She is excellent at what she does. Please save yourself the trouble comparing prices, food quality, etc. Toscana is the way to go!

Toscana catered my wedding in February 2011, and in every category, they constantly exceeded my expectations, going above and beyond to satisfy. From the tasting (we had two tastings, and were sent home with extra food so that we could get second opinions!) to the responsiveness of their catering manager, Erica Razze, to following my setup instructions to a t, everything was perfect. They provided a luxe product, and yet, were extremely sensitive to my budgetary constraints, and Erica brainstormed with us how to have the best meal possible without going overboard on cost/quantity. When it came down to the final count, etc., they were very patient, and created a special vegan dish for one of our guests, and several other custom meals, exactly as we wanted them. There was an abundance of food - they even made us special doggie bags to take away with us! So many guests came up and complimented the exotic menu they had put together. I would highly recommend them.

We were very pleased with our experience with Toscana Catering. They were recommended to my husband and I from a friend and we were not disappointed. Erica was a great partner and helped us to complete our vision of the wedding. She and her staff were very flexible. My husband and I wanted a Balsamic Vinegar Bar for the cocktail hour. Erica had her chefs create a few different types of infused balsamic vinegar and olive oils dips. It was delicious! We were very pleased with the outcome of our wedding!
