Rosemary Mountain

Francesca was fantastic! She was helpful and patient during the planning stage. The dinner was delicious, beautifully presented, and served with grace and style. I can highly recommend her arancini, squash and amaretti ravioli, vegetable Wellington, fruit tart and tiramisu! The meat lovers also raved about the roast beef and the chicken in porchetta. It was all superb! On top of it all, Francesca and her husband, Franco, drove three hours both ways to make my birthday dinner so special! I will be forever grateful. Thanks Francesca!

We had a wonderful evening on Saturday with Francesca and Franco serving my party of 8, with the most delicious and interesting Italian food. The canapés were a lovely touch and the table service, quality of ingredients and charismatic approach made our evening very special. Can’t wait for next time!!

CaterItaly provided a brilliant service to our family on Christmas Day. We received tasty food and excellent service from Franco & Francesca. They took all the stress out of our hands through setting up, serving and tidy up. We highly recommend them.

Wonderful private chef, can't recommend highly enough! Francesca cooked a private meal for our group of 8 for a a special family birthday. Her warmth and professionalism really stood out, we appreciated the time she took to explain the food and she really made it an evening we will remember for many years to come. And of course the food was absolutely top restaurant quality. Thank you :)

I found Francesca online and what a find!!! We enjoyed an absolutely fantastic private dinner for my husbands birthday. From the beginning, communication was good and Francesca completely unphased by 3 vegetarians, 1 coeliac and 2 meat lovers. The meal was delicious and we all loved the stories that Francesca told about each dish.
I cannot recommend Cater Italy highly enough and we will definitely meet Francesca again.

Naomi and Tim

Dear Francesca, I just wish to sincerely thank you for the beautiful and delicious food you provided for Bethan and Thomas wedding last week. It was absolutely delicious and it was so beautifully presented. The salad was lovely and delicate and there were so many reports about the gorgeous lasagne. I just wish I had been able to taste more of it all! 😊
I would have no hesitation in recommending your wonderful company to others! Thank you once again for your warmth, kindness and healthy, beautiful Italian cooking.
It really made our daughter's wedding reception special.

Kindest regards
Naomi and Tim Millar and family

Francesca was fabulous; great chef and super friendly! She was very communicative, as well as collaborative and flexible when it came to picking out a menu for our guests (one was a vegetarian, the rest were not). Everything was homemade, from the bread to the pasta to the incredible tiramisu for dessert (honestly it was the best tiramisu I’ve ever had). I would definitely book her again for a great, homely, filling, handmade-with-love Italian meal!

Shannah Smith

Francesca is an absolutely first class chef and her food and service are out of this world. I contacted her 2 weeks before a hen party after another caterer pulled out and she was so accommodating, her replies were almost instant and she created a menu for 15 of us which included vegetarian, dairy and gluten free options for all. She was super professional and friendly and her daughter who helped out was also excellent. Some of the best Italian food I’ve had before and she really made the hen party night. Couldn’t recommend her enough! :)

CaterItaly provided catering for 16 people at my other half's 40th and the service were simply exceptional. Fresh tasty food for course after course delivered with a passion for Italian cuisine and an amazing birthday cake.

From the quote process to the menu options and the service delivery everything was flawless and we would all highly recommend.

If you like authentic home-made Italian food, I highly recommend CaterItaly. Francesca tailored everything to our needs, and that wasn't an easy task given that our party varied in age from 3 to 73, and everything in between. Quality was exceptional and what made the occasion so enjoyable was the warmth and friendliness of the service. Nothing was too much trouble,...
