Minnesota Bride, Best of 2014

“My wedding reception was catered by D’Amico, and everything was phenomenal. Every single one of the guests at my wedding was over the moon about the food. Dinner was impeccable, served hot, tasted great and everyone received their food in a timely manner. The dessert table looked elegant, and all of the little treats were so tasty (especially the white chocolate-dipped pineapple). Last but not least, the midnight snack was just what everyone needed before heading home.” –JBlair Valone, married November 5 in Minneapolis

Wedding Wire, Brides Choice Awards 2013

“What more would you want to say about your catering...the food was phenomenal. They provided delicious and creative appetizers, and the dinner was superb. To top it all off, the cake was lights out. I highly recommend using them at one of their venues, as it's sort of a one stop shop. Their staff was fantastic, from my event manager Jessica and her team, all the way to the servers and bartender. We couldn't have asked for more!" - From Kelly, Married 11-5-11 at Calhoun Beach Club

Minnesota Bride, Best of 2011

“D’Amico paid a lot of attention to what I wanted and they were very detail-oriented. They also suggested things I hadn’t thought of, like having a fruit and cheese platter during our cocktail hour that was really simple and our guests absolutely loved. I’m a perfectionist, an absolute control freak, and they exceeded my expectations.” –Jenn Lestor, married October 23, 2010, at Mill City Museum, Minneapolis
