The food was incredible and the presentation exceeded itself.

My husband and I had the pleasure of having Ricardo and his team cater our wedding last October. I can’t begin to describe how amazing this experience was. Starting with the menu planning , Ricardo knew exactly what to serve and how. Ricardos suggestions were fabulous and the guests were extremely fullfilled. The food was incredible and the presentation exceeded itself. Ricardo and his staff were professional, personable and efficient. I would recommend Ricardo and his team for any catered event , no matter how big or small. Our guests still rave about the food at our wedding and 165 people can’t be wrong.

Our guests still rave about the food at our wedding...

Ricardo catered my bridal shower and it was amazing! Ricardo decided on the perfect appetizers to please the entire guest list of 25 ladies. There was more than enough served at the perfect time and, as you know, the food was fabulous. He came to the home personally to create an amazing appetizer menu for my shower. Not only did he bring the food, but the dishes and all the clean up was taken care of. Love that Ricardo and will absolutely use him for the next event. I may even create random events so he can cater again. Thank you, Ricardo!

The food for the wedding was to die for!

Words can not describe how happy we were with Ricardos Catering. Ricardo was the perfect choice for our wedding hands down! We loved his laid back easy going vibe right from the start. He was always quick to respond via email and even text. From our menu tasting at his restaurant (which he served personally) to the menu planning, we were excited from the start. The food for the wedding was to die for! Pizza in the vineyard from his brick pizza oven for cocktail hour. And our family style feast for the reception. All of our guests raved about the gorgonzola cream gnocchi and the blackened filet mignon. Everything we could have asked for and more. I only wish we could do it again!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts...

My husband and I had Ricardo cater our wedding on Sunday, June 25, 2017. I have to say he’s spoiled me over the years with his exceptional cooking skills so of course he was going to cater our big day!

We met Ricardo a couple of times before the big day to discuss menu and logistics as well as taste our menu choice (yumm!).
On the day of he showed up early to ensure everything was taken care of and ready to go. The food and service were executed perfectly and everyone got more than enough food. I still have people telling me how amazing the food was and that it was a highlight for them.
Ricardo, I’ve always had a love for food but working for you over the years has really made me appreciate the hard work and talent it takes to be successful. I can’t express how much I love food and I owe a large part of that love to you.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day extra special

Everything was exceptional and we cannot thank Ricardo enough for that 🙂

When my husband and I were planning our wedding there were a few things that were very important to us and having great food was at the top of the list. Ricardo‘s was recommended to us by our venue, Durali Villa, and we couldn’t be more grateful for that recommendation! Ricardo was amazing to deal with from beginning to end and extremely accommodating with all of our requests. He put together a perfect family style menu as well as a midnight snack. We had a few food allergies that needed to be worked into the meal and he went above and beyond to accommodate those. Not only did he cook an unbelievable meal but Ricardo took the time to stop by each table to ask how the meal was. Every one of our guests raved about the food and especially the pizza! Everything was exceptional and we cannot thank Ricardo enough for that 🙂

The food was spectacular...

Chef Ricardo and his team catered for our wedding at Durali Villa in Vernon on June 25, and it was outstanding, to say the least. We knew from the minute he first sent his proposed menu it was meant to be. The food was spectacular, every one of our guests could not say enough about it. But I think what put our experience over the top was the service, both in our planning process and at the wedding itself. The staff’s attention to detail is second to none and made both my husband and I, as well as our 90 guests, feel like he was serving each of us as VIPs. We would recommend Ricardo‘s for any event. We’ve also had the pleasure of enjoying the restaurant, and all of the above comments stand for that experience as well. Thank you again to Chef Ricardo and his staff for exceeding our very high expectations, it truly was first class. We hope to enjoy your restaurant again soon!!
Very sincerely,
Lisa and Mark
