As my now husband and I sit back and reflect over our amazing wedding weekend in Tuscany, our thoughts Spring immediately to the catering and food. We felt so lucky to have found I Vecchi Amici. Fabio and Daniele are two incredible people and caterers. Fabio organises events and Daniele is the chef. When we first met them, we knew that we would get on brilliantly. Then we tasted their food and wow, it blew our minds! Matt, my then fiancé, who is also a foodie, enjoyed every single thing he tried. We walked out of their restaurant knowing these would be our guys for the big day. Their communication with us was excellent, attention to detail was second to none, and they really went above and beyond even before the event to make sure we were happy.
We met a couple of evenings before the wedding to go through the details. I felt very happy and in safe hands.
On the day, they were even better than we had anticipated. The service was excellent, with incredible staff.
We went for a buffet style meal with Daniele cooking some of the aperitifs canapés and the pastas in front of the guests, which added to the experience. He was fantastic. A truly talented chef, always smiling and happy.
After the wedding virtually every single guest commented how great the food was and named their favourite dish. We highly recommend their fried vegetables, any of their pastas ( although every single guest was blown away by the cinta cinese ravioli) and the pork with apple sauce... I am a vegan and I can honestly say I loved all that they cooked for all our vegan guests, and we had quite a few. My mum can't have salt and they even prepared special food for her too.
They were very respectful of the venue, and nothing was too much for them.
We honestly couldn't recommend Vecchi Amici enough - it's true what people say, a great wedding is very often down to food, and well, the overall feedback was that our wedding was incredible, thanks to the food!
Thank you Fabio and Daniele and Vecchi amici staff for making our day one we will never forget.Feel free to contact me if you want any more information, as we honestly couldn't reccomend Vecchi Amici enough, These guys rock. we will post pictures soon too.
