  • We hired Popolo to cater our wedding and I don’t think we could have picked anyone better! We did a tasting with them and the food was amazing, not to mention they have so many options and it’s super affordable compared to other caterers in the area. We booked them on the spot and also got our silverware, plates, drinkware, tablecloths, bartenders, drink station, and more from them. We got married during covid and they we’re super informative and communicative leading up to the wedding. Their staff is trained to handle food service specifically during the pandemic and they used all of the necessary precautions to make our guests feel safe. I think we were most impressed about their timing and ability to be on schedule. I have been to several weddings where we just waited around forever waiting for food to be served and Popolo immediately had appetizers out after the ceremony and started dinner service 20 minutes early. We got tons of compliments about the quality of the food, and... Read more

  • Popolo's was a huge help in allowing us to still have the wedding of our dreams despite coronavirus! Leon and Kat made us feel like family from the very beginning, and even after the pandemic hit they were doing everything in their power to make sure our special day went according to plan. They even helped us find a location for a reception when our initial location cancelled on us 3 weeks prior to the wedding. The food was exquisite, and the service was extraordinary. From meeting with them initially, to taste testing their entree's and sides, to serving food down the buffet line, Popolo's made the process as seamless as possible, while taking all of our guests safety into consideration. You couldn't ask for a better group of people to cater your event!

    Dear Davis & Kenya, Thank you for this great review! You are such a delightful couple. We loved the opportunity to support making your wedding day dreams come true! Embracing the extra precautions required to ensure guest and staff safety for your micro-wedding ceremony & dinner was a huge success. You looked so happy on your special day; and that's a big part of what drives us to do what we do. We are smiling from ear to ear to know how pleased you were with your overall Popolo Catering experience from our staff, to the food and our service. Leon gets a gold star for making Kenya's favorite meal happen with the chicken parmesan and fettuccine alfredo : ) Right? Sending our gratitude for allowing us to be a part of your amazing day, with our best wishes for a wonderful life as Mr. and Mrs. Heaton! Congratulations! All the best, Leon, Kat, and our Popolo family

  • We reached out to Popolo Catering on 10/20 for a wedding on 10/31. Our timeline was ASAP, we had a strict budget in mind, COVID was already making things more difficult, and all the coordination had to be done virtually as we were not from the area and wouldn't have time to visit. Popolo responded enthusiastically and was ready to make it happen for us. Immediately upon speaking to Kathleen and Leon we knew that these were the right people for our special day. From the first interaction they made us feel at ease, worked with us, walked us through each decision in great detail, provided insight, and had all the services we were looking for. They also had excellent recommendations and referrals within the industry and their experience shined through in our conversations. On the day of, they were extremely professional, prompt, and really felt more like welcomed guest than staff. They served us our first meal as a couple and had the kindest words. The food was delicious, drinks continued ... Read more

  • First off, Kathy and Leon were an absolute joy to work with! They treated us like family throughout the planning process and were always willing to offer suggestions and recommendations based on their extensive experience (which I heavily relied upon). To top it off, they were also not afraid to point out where we could save quite a bit of money without compromising our vision - something I truly appreciated! The food was fantastic and the staff even accommodated a last minute request when it came to the cake cutting. Thank you so much Popolo Team! P.S. I highly recommend their beef brisket and chicken formaggio dish! A guest favorite at our event!

  • Aloha did a stunning job on my wedding dress alteration, I have literally never had clothes fit better than that dress when they were done with it! They are often extremely busy (because they do such good work!), but as long as you are patient and polite, they'll take amazing care of you. I'm incredibly impressed. Wish I could rate them higher!!

  • We LOVE Popolo! The food is amazing and the service was outstanding. From the moment we booked, the staff at Popolo has been attentive, detail oriented, and so kind. I love how easy it was to get a quote started online. We were also able to rent all of our linens, flatware, plates, and glassware through Popolo! Monica was so helpful with finalizing all of the last minute wedding details! The day-of food service went off without a hitch and I receive rave reviews from our guests. I still dream about the mashed potatoes and tri tip! I highly recommend Popolo catering for your next wedding or special event.

  • We are extremely satisfied with the delicious food and amazing service from the Popolo Catering owners and staff as they showcased their talent at our daughter's wedding. From our initial encounter at a wedding fair and on through the tasting, planning, and finally the wedding itself, the service was highly professional and very personal. The family style table service was by far the best way to get hot, tasty food to over 130 guests quickly and efficiently. Throughout the reception we heard compliments about the great food that was served. We were thrilled that they were an integral part of making my daughter's dream wedding a reality!
