Thank you so much for all your help. You have been lovely to work with--Not to mention efficient and reliable. You also helped me keep my party on budget! Manny and Raphael were terrific and incredibly courteous. The food, service, setup and cleanup were AMAZING. I would use you guys everyday if I could!!! My guests could not stop eating and they were beyond impressed!
Till next time, Warm Wishes, Laura
I wanted to take the time to thank you for the wonderful event this past weekend. Everyone at the reception complimented the wonderful setting, from the long, white linen table to the bar and small breakout areas. The tents your team set up added to the nice and cozy ambience.
The food was absolutely the best I have had of any catered events, but what really stood out from all the other events we have had was the SUPERIOR service and professionalism your three team members provided throughout the afternoon and into the evening. When they finally left, I noticed they had left the backyard and garage completely spotless, clean and in better condition than when they arrived! Please be sure to thank them again for the wonderful evening.
I plan to use your services very soon again, and hope to be your client for a long time to
Thank you! Marco, KB Home Inc.
I am still on cloud nine! Joel was incredible! He is an asset to your organization. The way he was able to anticipate the needs of our guests, keep the refreshments flowing, and keep the area bussed without being noticed demonstrates how truly professional he is.
The buffet table was attractive and more important, the food
was excellent! All who attended raved about the food
and the excellent service. I would not hesitate to hire you again; in fact, I can't wait!
It was a pleasure to work with you.
Thank you for taking care of everything. The food was fabulous and the
service was great. The company I work for has held events at Il Fornaio
restaurant, always with a positive experience. Your catering has proved to
be excellent as well. I will not hesitate to use or recommend Il Fornaio
for upcoming professional and personal events.
I just wanted to thank you and your staff for a truly wonderful job this past Saturday. The food was delicious and the servers were friendly and quick - the event actually sparkled. Everyone was very impressed. Please pass along our appreciation. We look forward to future events catered by Il Fornaio. Scott, Dunkin Brands

John and I would like to thank you very much on a job well done in coordinating everything to ensure that our wedding went smoothly! The Atrium and the Ballroom looked beautiful! You have followed our vision of how we wanted the ceremony and reception to look to a T, and then some! Everything was in place, and John and I loved how you decorated our Sweetheart Table! It was just perfect! We loved every minute of it and received a lot of compliments from our guests telling us that our wedding was one of the best, most beautiful and most fun weddings they ever attended! The whole wedding moved like clockwork. All these would not have been possible without your help and hard work.
I truly appreciated your follow-ups the day of the wedding and making sure I was informed of how things are coming along in the preparations. The fact that I knew you were on top of things made it so much easier for me to enjoy getting ready/dressed/made-up for our wedding without having to worry. And let's not forget the mirrors you brought in to our room even without me asking for them!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Hilary for making our wedding a truly memorable, wonderful and beautiful wedding!
Best Regards, Carmina, Bride
I am writing this note to commend the excellent service we received from the Il Fornaio team at an event held at our home in Beverly Hills for NYU. Everything, from the arrival time, to the arrangement of the table, bar, service and clean up was of the highest quality. The team arrived punctually and began their business. We were so delighted with the discreet manner in which the team assembled the materials and prepared for our guests, because it allowed us to concentrate on our own responsibilities. This was also true of the serving and drink service during the event and the quiet and unobtrusive way in which they cleaned up and returned things to their pre-event form. We thought it important that you are aware of the very professional and fine service we received. The food preparation was perfect - arriving warm and the arrangements of the cold appetizers was not only appealing, but delicious. It is the first event that we have given where we, as hosts were truly able to enjoy our guests and felt everything was under control and worked smoothly - from start to finish. Please let the "Irvine team" know of our pleasure and satisfaction.
Everything was wonderful! Your service surpassed our expectations and the food was a big hit with everyone there (including my stepmother...). The staff was warm and attentive. Just a pleasure. We are now fans of your service - my wife, myself and all of my friends from the party thank you and your staff for a very enjoyable evening.
With warm regards, Bill
Your team was amazing!! The best cuisine, service and staff.... you are the best!!! I will use you again and again. The best ever...
Thank you so much, Giselle
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you did to make my day happen. You and your staff were absolutely amazing and unbelievable. How could I ever thank you enough, I know how much time and effort you put into our event and it showed with how flawless everything was. So many people commented on how wonderful the food was and how great the servers were and I just feel so blessed that we had you guys to work with.
Thank you, thank you Gretchen.
Thanks, Nicky (Bride)
Thank you all so much for giving us a spectacular evening! Wow-The food was outstanding-from the appetizers right on through to the dessert. Our room was to die for.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Warmest regards on behalf of the board,

Thank you so much for your part in Roseville 2008. It is always such a pleasure to work reliable and professional vendors for our events, especially those of your caliber. We couldn't have done it without you!
Sincerely, Angela - Events Coordinator, Roseville Chamber of Commerce
I am writing to express my delight with the service we were given by Fabio and Ben for the reception for my mother-in-law's memorial service. Fabio and Ben arrived precisely on schedule and immediately set to work setting up tables, linens, etc. Before our guests arrived, the room was completely ready. When the service ended and we moved to the reception hall, both Fabio and Ben were there ready to receive our guests with beverages and right-out-the-oven hot appetizers. Once our guests had departed, they set to work quickly tearing down the furniture, etc., and leaving the kitchen in the clean condition in which they found it. I couldn't have been happier with their service.
Gretchen, I really appreciate how easy you (and your website) made it for me to set up the reception. It was literally "a piece of cake", unlike any catering I've ever experienced. The sales order was completely detailed; I didn't have to guess what would be provided. I also didn't have to worry that the bartender would show up in short sleeves with tattoos all over his furry arms (something I experienced a few months ago with a different restaurant)!
Il Fornaio provided just what we wanted: elegant, affordable, and easily-planned reception.
Thank you very much for your help, and please let Fabio and Ben know pleased I was with their efforts.
