  • My wedding venue was BYO everything, pretty much, so I knew early on that I would need to find my own caterer. I did a ton of research. I knew I wanted something classy, but also reasonably priced, and I finally found La Prima. They have an endless amount of food options to pick from and can easily handle a large group. A few months before our wedding we did a tasting, hoping La Prima wouldn’t be too good to be true, and the food was absolutely amazing. At the wedding everyone was raving about the food. We worked with Gabrielle throughout the whole process and she really helped me with a lot of the planning. We met multiple times and she was super knowledgeable about all the little details that go into event planning, which I was super grateful for since I did not have a wedding planner. La Prima also set up all of our glassware, silverware, and linen rentals. It was great to not have to deal with any of that! La Prima really shined on the day before and day of the wedding. They help... Read more

  • La Prima was a beautiful touch to our wedding reception. The guests were soo excited to have special coffee, especially since our families were all huge coffee lovers. The coffee is obviously great so that was a fantastic small add on that was well worth it.

  • La Prima Catering would be an outstanding asset to any event. The food is amazing, the staff is amazing and the service is always professional. I work for Act Academy Charter School located on The Lutheran Seminary of Philadelphia's campus and I met Karen 3 years ago & I have been working with her ever since. Karen and her staff continues to be a big hit with my staff and students. 3 Proms and almost 3 Graduations later, the food continues to be delicious. I also use them monthly for our monthly Board meetings and they always work with me no matter what my budget is. I recommend Karen and La Prima for any event, you will not be disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Our relationship with everyone at The Lutheran Seminary of Philadelphia is very important to us. It is always our pleasure to serve you all.

  • Working with Gabrielle and La Prima Catering was AMAZING! I cannot say enough positive things about Gabrielle, she was so awesome, accommodating, smart, and made the whole process not just easy but really really enjoyable. I trusted Gabrielle and La Prima so much every step of the way, and on the big day, they executed everything perfectly. We were so happy with the menu we picked out - from cocktail hour to our three different dinner stations - as well as the linens and dishes, the service, setup, and everything else. Having really good and exciting food was important to us, and La Prima just killed it with a super special and delicious menu. Also want to note that I have food allergies, and they were so helpful in creating options that worked, which is so appreciated.

  • We hired Karen and LaPrima for our wedding in September at the Highlands in Fort Washington. Karen was a dream to work with. She was so calm and attentive and never made us feel rushed or pressured. You would have thought that we were her only clients. She was quick to answer any questions we had. She worked with us to choose a meal that was in our budget. I was very important to us that the food be exceptional. We basically got to create our own menu. Our guests commented on how good the food was. One even stated that out all the many weddings he had attended, our food was the best. The staff was very kind and friednly and very good at their job. Everything went very smoothly. We would recommend Karen and LaPrima to anyone that wants top quality and service but at a resonable price.

  • Karen Gollard of La Prima Catering is fabulous! She was very responsive over the 11 months of planning and so easy to work with. She was exceptionally quick thinking when all of the electricity was out in our venue on a 100+ degree night. The food was abundant and delicious - make sure you get the lamb lollipops. Karen welcomed my ideas and she was calm and comforting throughout - nothing seemed to phase or upset her. Their prices were very reasonable and presentation was excellent! I can't say enough about it.

  • My husband and I had our catering and equipment coordination handled by Gabrielle at La Prima. Our wedding was unique in that we didn't have a traditional amount of time to plan everything out. We had to follow a timeline set by immigration rules, so we had to meet via Skype and email most of the time. We loved La Prima right from the first tasting! Gabrielle was flexible and accommodating, right from the beginning. Every detail was carefully run by us. Gabrielle was so understanding, so kind and extremely patient with my wife and I as we flip-flopped a few times in menu and equipment. The prices were very reasonable. Our total bill included everything from food to forks to tent. The total came in just under $20k and that included extending the reception an hour and adding more wine during the reception. We had salmon, Napa chicken, papperdelle salad, rice pilaf, assorted bread, chocolate mousse shots, sandwich cookies, cake (bredenbecks bakery), wine from O'Donnell's winery... Read more

  • Karen and her team at La Prima have been an absolute dream to work with. From my initial freak-outs in the beginning to guiding us through all of the decisions, I can't imagine doing this with another caterer. Not to mention, the food is incredible! I'm so glad I don't have to worry about anything on our wedding day because I know La Prima has it covered.

    Thank you so much. It was our pleasure to contribute to making your day extra special!

  • La Prima, was EXCELLENT!!!!!!!! La prima was like one stop shop for "ALL" of our wedding day needs. We worked directly with Karen and Andrea during the planning process, both blew us away with their creative ideas and readiness to assist. They where both "hands on" the day of our wedding, making sure that every little detail was executed perfectly. The entire staff and team at La Prima was very professional, accommodating and friendly. There was one server who catered to us thru out the evening, ms.Turham was the ABSOULTE best.... Guest where blown away at how attentive the catering team was.... but not only was the service excellent, but the food was even better!!! Our guest raved over the quality, taste and beautiful presentation of our selected dinner menu. I would definitely use La prima again for any if not all of our catering needs.....

  • We hired La Prima to cater our June garden wedding in Philadelphia for 125 people, and they were amazing. Karen was so great to work with, and helped us plan the entire event. She was quick to respond to us anytime we had questions and truly worked with us to give us our dream wedding. It was a complete DIY affair and I had no idea what I was doing. Karen guided us through choosing a menu, finding a beer/liquor distributor, figuring out quantities of everything needed, figuring out a floorpan, guiding guests and the event along during the night, and I could go on-and-on. The food was so delicious and the service was thoughtful. It was beyond anything we were expecting, and we honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience! I would 100% recommend La Prima.

  • The food at La Prima Catering was absolutely AMAZING. The staff was friendly and professional. Gabrielle, however, did not do a good job with the communication. She took weeks to respond to e-mails, and the communication between the venue, bakery, and the catering company was very poor. Also, the food was served luke warm to our guests! There needs to be another person to communicate with besides Gabrielle, or else this would of been a 5 star rating!

  • It has been nearly a year since my wedding in September of 2017. You will see many reviews mentioning Karen Golland. I had the pleasure of working with her as well, & like everyone else, really formed a bond. She just "got" what we were looking for & helped us immensely with our food choices, ideas for arranging tables, & even choosing specialty drinks to go with our 20's theme. So you can imagine my disappointment when I found out in a rather abrupt & odd way that she was no longer with the company. At this point it may have been ~2 months out from the wedding. Nonetheless, I assumed that what was discussed & decided with Karen would carry on with whoever took over. That was not quite the case & there was a drastic change in price per person that I found out 3 days prior to my wedding. I'm talking about $66/person to over $90/person! Also suddenly, a new player came in - his name is Rob Thompson. I'm not sure if he was new management or what but I can say that he was incredibly rude &... Read more

  • No one goes to a wedding expecting the food to be good, but it was very important to us and my parents that the food be REALLY good and there be a lot of it. We had a couple different tastings with other caterers before we decided on La Prima. During the first tasting, we knew almost right away that we would go with them. They were able to accommodate our request for family style, which our guests LOVED. Everyone raved to us about how much they loved the food to the point that some people said it was not just the best wedding food they've had, but it was on par with restaurant meals. The dishes were creative and they were flexible on changing different aspects of some dishes to suit our tastes. They also worked to stay in our budget, which was a huge help. I would definitely recommend them!

  • I used this vendor for my wedding and would use them again for any event. The food is delicious and local! They are very willing to work with your constraints and everyone at my wedding loved the food. There were some minor issues from a customer service end which is why I ranked 4 out of 5 but even so, I love the product so much that I would recommend them to anyone looking for great food at their event.
