Catering by Falzone
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My sister’s wedding was held in my backyard on 6/30/12 here in WoodRanch, Simi Valley. My sister lives in Minnesota so she had to do everything electronically – emails, phone, internet, and after much searching she contracted Catering by Falzone with Pat and Judy as the owners. Their website was clear and easy to navigate and not too much fuss besides who has time to wait for fancy flash to load?

Food tasting: it was done conveniently at our house, not only was the food very tasty but Pat and Judy also brought all the dinner accoutrements so I didn’t have to do any clean up! Throughout the wedding preparations, Falzone catering was in touched with my sister and I; we told them how many people we were having and they ordered all the tables, chairs, dishes, glasses, tablecloths, napkins, etc. from the rental company and the charges for the rentals were cheaper than if we would have rented them ourselves. Oh by the way, if you are not sure how to coordinate your color schemes, ask Pat he’ll make wonderful suggestions – he suggested a terrific tablecloth for the sweetheart table which made it extra special.

Wedding day: Falzone catering crew came in 3 hours before the wedding and set up all the tables and chairs which were delivered the day before. The bar tender set up his wares. As it turned out, we could not set up all the tables and chairs because of the wedding ceremony “chair set up” so there was a lot of shuffling that had to be done after the ceremony – but with the extra help, the Falzone crew was able to get everything in the right place in a short amount of time.

Appetizers and buffet dinner: Prior to the wedding, Pat and Judy surveyed our home for better dining flow. Presentation was great, everyone loved the food, the crab-stuffed shrimp was especially good, and Pat was kind enough to slice and serve the home-cooked tri-tip for us. Judy also offered to put together the wedding cake that we picked up from a local bakery which they also sliced and served.

Overall: I would recommend Catering by Falzone to anyone whose budget is on the low to moderate side. The owners are very easy to work with and very professional. The food is great, the service is friendly, price is just right, and even the trash was nicely sorted!
