What We Offer:

Amici’s is a Full Scale Off-Premise Catering Company specializing in Weddings, Corporate and Private Events for any occasion imaginable.

What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:

I started washing dishes at an upscale French Restaurant in NY close to the Culinary Institute of America where I worked my way up through the ranks and fell in love with The Hospitality Industry. I decided to go to College in Florida at FSU and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Restaurant and Hospitality. I started my business 5 days after I graduated and it has been my passion ever since.

Our Personality Is:

Amici’s and our entire staff love what we do and it shows at each and every event we handle. We are extremely passionate about our business!

We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

We realize how important it is to really “wow” our clients in every way and especially on their wedding day. This is a day that many dreams about at an early age and we want to ensure that Amici’s will help make that day spectacular in every way!

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

Our executive chef was a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America in New York and has trained and worked abroad for over three years honing and mastering her skills. She surrounds herself with a team of amazing culinary and hospitality professionals and uses only the finest and freshest ingredients in their food preparations and recipes. Our cuisine not only tastes amazing but is presented beautifully as well, through creative fruit and vegetable carvings and garnishes.

One Thing Most Couples Would Be Surprised to Know About Us Is:

When I was 11, 12, and 13 I won 1st Place for three years in a row as a NY Accordion Champion in my age division.

One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:

I enjoy all things related to the water! I love scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, fishing, and every water sport imaginable. I also love being a father to my two amazing children.

Our Pricing:

Pricing for wedding menus starts in the low $20’s for complete packages (that even includes all the china, flatware, glassware, and linens).

Meet Michael

I was raised in upstate NY in an Italian Irish family and music and food were a huge part of my childhood which got me very interested in pursuing a career in catering. After working in a restaurant as a dishwasher, busboy, sous chef, and head chef I moved to Florida to study Hospitality and Restaurant Management at FSU, and shortly after graduating I opened up a meat market and deli in Palm Harbor. I did a lot of catering out the back door and after 14 years I phased out the retail and focused exclusively on catering weddings and events, which truly was my passion. The retail and service of the meat market and deli business helped to develop a large following which allowed the catering business to grow very quickly in a short amount of time. Currently, I own and occupy a 10,000 square foot state of the art facility in Oldsmar where we are very centrally located to the Tampa, St. Pete, Clearwater market. We are a preferred vendor and caterer at over 100 Reception sites in the Tampa Bay area and have earned countless awards in our industry. I surround myself with the very best employees in the hospitality industry and continue to strive to exceed our client’s expectations in an effort to always create a “wow’ factor, earning stellar reviews from our happy couples and individuals that put their trust in our amazing team!

Coastal Dusty Blue Waterfront Wedding | Tampa Bay Watch

Since a lot of our guests were traveling for our wedding, we wanted to make it a unique wedding experience where they felt pampered. To do this, we made sure our cocktails and food were high-end, and we put a lot of our budget towards accomplishing a spectacular dining experience. I wanted a caterer that had great reviews and could do a sit-down meal for our guests.

I chose Amici's Catered Cuisine because their ratings were phenomenal, and they offered a package that included everything I needed. Our guests raved about the food! They loved the garlic Parmesan fries, and the meat was all cooked perfectly and full of flavor! I enjoyed the Mexican street corn, too! We got compliments about every item served at the wedding, from appetizers to desserts.

We wanted upscale service and excellent-quality food. My husband wanted a formal four-course menu with full service and no buffet tables. We had a classic sit-down dinner. Amici's Catered Cuisine did an excellent job! Our menu included blue crab cakes, roasted pear salad, spinach and ricotta stuffed chicken, petit sirloin, garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus bundles, a Viennese dessert table, and late night snack. Everything was delicious!

My family is Italian, and we felt that Amici's Catered Cuisine offered the best options for a reasonable price. Their service was great; everyone raved about how good the food was! Everything our caterer served was amazing and got rave reviews from all the guests, but the prime rib carving station and the passed hors d'oeuvres (especially the spanakopita) were the best!
