Thank You Notes

I wish I could give 10 stars because that is what Donatelli’s deserves! From our initial email to Trish to set up a tasting she was more than helpful and accommodating. We went in for a tasting around 9 months prior to our wedding and I knew immediately that we needed Donatelli’s at our wedding. At first I wasn’t a fan of a buffet style wedding but the food was so good I didn’t care how it was served. The day of the wedding could not have gone any smoother than it did with Trish’s staff. They all were more than helpful and kind to us and all our guests. We had so many compliments about them. They were even accommodating to a family member who has multiple food allergies. They hand delivered the food to her and made sure they knew where she would be seated before hand so they didn’t need to bother us about it during dinner. We had the gelato as well and it was delicious! And ended the night with late night Pizza’s. I am so thankful to Donatelli’s for the amazing experience. Trish, you are awesome!!!

YUM YUM YUM! Our wedding was just amazing and we are so happy we chose Donatelli’s. Trish and her staff are the BEST. The food was such a hit I still have people asking me who we used a week later. We did buffet style and I love the fact that they still help serve as you go through the line, we did the gelato for desert instead of a cake and everyone loved it. I got to keep leftovers as well. I don’t know what else to say besides they helped us have the most perfect day. The staff is so nice and I loved how it didn’t feel like we had a bunch of servers walking around, they got things done at the perfect time to not interrupt anything, kept things moving along, kept chaos from happening by releasing one table at a time — they made our day easy because they’re so good at what they do. We are so excited to keep going there on date nights as a married couple. Thank you Trish and everyone there for making our day perfect!!! 10 stars out of 5 needs to be an option for you guys.

Donatelli’s was hands down, amazing!! The food was delicious. The service was superb! They did an excellent job. I would highly recommend using Donatelli’s for your wedding caterer. Try the Twisted Mac & Cheese – it’s to die for!! All of our guests said that it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had!

Donatelli’s is worth every single penny. They are the most all-inclusive caterer and work with you every step of the way to ensure a smooth wedding. The food is out of this world delicious and you get to keep any leftovers.

The staff was outrageously friendly and treated me like a queen. I never had to lift a finger. If you are getting married at Kellerman’s Event Center in White Bear Lake there is no better combo than Kellerman’s and Donatelli’s. I recommend doing a tasting through Donatelli’s. You’ll leave full, happy, and confident that you’ve made the best catering choice.

I just want to drop you a quick note to say thank you to you and the staff at Donatelli’s for the excellent experience on Friday night for our son’s graduation.
Ann and Anna did a great job making sure that everyone was taken care of. The food was excellent and everyone in our group had a great time.

Thanks for all of your assistance and the excellent service.

I cannot thank you enough for the use of your party room on Saturday. The server was outstanding, the food was great and the hospitality that Donatelli’s shows its customers is the best. Thank you again so very much.

Trish & the Donatelli’s Catering Staff-

Thank you so much for doing such and amazing job for our wedding on 10/22/16! Your entire team was very professional and did a great job keeping our wedding on task! Our guests have continuously told us (for months now) that they absolutely loved the lasagna, very courteous staff, and the late night pizza. Some of them even said that the pizza saved them!

I would hands down recommend you to anyone looking for some amazing Italian catering! 10 out of 10!

Thank you, Donatelli’s!

Our thanks for creating an appealing, delicious, and stress-free evening! You promised to be a full-service caterer- you were and more. Mark and his crew were patient and impeccable in the set-up, serving, and clean up. Every detail was their concern and they followed through right down to washing our cake plates. You have my thanks and a recommendation to anyone who will listen! (more…)

Comments & A Thank You

First let me apologize for the lengh, I don’t use the short version to say anything. Let me go back to a week ago. On St. Pat’s Day, I was working long hours outside. In dire need of a good meal and a warm up. I knew where to get a good Rueben Sandwich and a bowl of soup. (more…)

Dear Trish & the Donatelli’s Catering Staff-

Thanks so much for serving up such delicious professionalism for our wedding 10/20/12!

Dear Trish,

There is really no excuse for Mike and I taking so long to thank you for the wonderful job you and your staff did catering for our wedding in June. I hope you will forgive us and agree that “it’s never too late”. The food at the wedding was incredible! I know a lot of the guests were glad that there were second servings! You went our of your way to work with our schedule when it came to decorating, and all of your staff was very friendly. My only regret is that I wasn’t able to eat as much as I would have liked! (Thankfully, your staff was kind enough to save the leftovers for us and we ate them on our honeymoon!) Thank you again for everything, you are truly great at what you do!


Trish & Crew-

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You guys did an amazing job. We were so pleased with everything you guys did for our wedding day. We got nothing but rave reviews on the food. We couldn’t be happier.


Trish and Staff,

We wanted to thank you all for making our wedding day all the better. I can’t believe how amazing all of you were in making sure dinner went perfectly. The food was delicious! We still are hearing wonderful comments on both the food and your staff!
Thank you


Thank you so much for your amazing catering! You went above and beyond. Everyone was so nice and helpful. Plus Guido loves you! I have referred you to everyone. You were unbelievable. Everyone loved the food. Thank you a million times over. Trish, you’re amazing!


We wanted to send a quick note to say thanks to you and your staff for helping us with our son’s graduation party this past summer. The party was a huge success, in large part due to the great food. We received so many positive comments about the food. It was truly amazing! We appreciate your help and guidance as we planned for this big event. Chances are you will be hearing from us again when our next one rolls through in a couple of years.
Thanks again for everything


Thank you for giving us meatball subs at the Hope Kids Festival. We really appreciate all your hard work cooking for us and those cookies—man they were delicious. You are amazing cookers, we are very happy at you. You rock!!!!!!!

I’ve heard horror stories of moms planning and cooking for days in preparation for their child’s open house. Choosing Donatelli’s to cater our son’s open house was stress free. They helped me pick the right menu and quantity and delivered everything we needed, hot and smelling wonderful. I felt like I could relax and spend time talking to all the guests. A year later I still hear unsolicited comments from people about how wonderful the pasta dishes were. I’m going to have to hire Donatelli’s again this year for my next son’s open house, or the guests will be mad.

Hi Trish,

Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say THANK YOU for everything last night. Our wedding went perfectly, and the food was a large part of that! EVERYBODY raved about how great it was and how it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding. (more…)


Dear Trish (and Donatelli’s staff)

Thanks you SO MUCH for the wonderful food and service you provided at our wedding reception on August 15. From the minute we selected you as our caterer we knew the food was one thing we wouldn’t have to worry about – we knew you would take care of everything. You were pleasant to work with, you worked around our decorating schedule, and we got tons of compliments on the food. There isn’t one thing we would have changed. Thank you so much for all your hard work!


Trish & Mark,

We want to very sincerely thank you for the fantastic job you did catering our wedding on October 24, 2009 at Central Park. The food was phenomenal! We got so many compliments on it. The service was great too, and your bot were a pleasure to work with. Thank You!

Dear Trish,

We are so glad you were able to be a part of our special day. We have no regrets about choosing Donatelli’s! The food was amazing and you took care of us wonderfully. We could not have asked for any more.

We are still receiving compliments on the great food we had at our wedding. We also froze some of our leftovers and are enjoying them even now.
Thank you for everything you did and for the red napkins. Our napkins with our name and wedding date arrived the Monday after the wedding. So now we are set for anniversaries.

Know that we have and will recommend you to others. You were a pleasure to work with and helped make the day wonderful.


Thanks to you and your staff for playing such a key role in making my little girl’s dream wedding become a reality. (more…)
