“I just wanted to take a moment to write you a personal email to thank you and your fantastic team for the service and food you delivered at our wedding last Saturday. It was absolutely incredible and everything we could have wanted and more. The food was beyond delicious and exactly as we remembered it, and it was such a pleasure to see all our guests enjoy it. Everyone has said how amazing the food was, and we were so pleased with it all! On our behalf please thank your incredible chefs and staff for all their hard work on our special day. The service was seamless, professional and they couldn’t have done more to help please our guests. Thank you again!”

“It’s hard to believe that a week has passed since Lee & Gaia’s wonderful wedding weekend at Il Borro, & looking back now it all seems like a beautiful dream! I just wanted to write to you all personally to express my enormous gratitude for all the amazing work done by you and your team to make it as incredible as it was. After enjoying the tasting at your offices many months ago I knew there was 1 thing we would not have to worry about and that was the quality of the food!! You guys did an awesome job and both we & our guests were knocked out by your service, presentation and of course the food. Pino and Fedele did an outstanding job on the night of the party - please thank them for me too as I don’t have their email addresses. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with you & once again a big thank you for all!!”
Lee & Gaia
“Even if a few weeks have passed since our wedding on the 23rd of August at Castello di Vincigliata, it still feels like a dream and words cannot describe how special this day was for us, our families & friends. Our guests still tell us how beautiful and very well organised the event was, what they probably didn't realise was how much work went into it... so many details! Elisa, thanks to you we chose Galateo (if you didn't know it already :) ) and we are extremely happy with our choice!! Thank you for taking our feedback on both food tastings so seriously and for supervising everything. Everyone loved the quality and the taste of the food. So please let the Chefs know! Also the service was great! Sonia, thank you for being genuinely friendly and responsive all the time and dealing with all the changes. This made working with Galateo so easy and just a pleasure to work with. Matteo, thank you for being there on the day and making sure everything ran smoothly. We have attached a link to a short video teaser below and will send out the photos once our photographer has finished editing them (takes up to 3 months). Please let us know where we can leave you a positive review online or if a future customer asks for a reference, we would be happy to give them feedback about our experience.”

“We wanted to thank you for the excellent service and delicious dinner on our wedding day! Everything was perfectly organised and the food was delicious - we received compliments from all our guests. Thank you for making our day special and magical, for your professionalism and devotion and for letting us have the dinner outside. We couldn’t be happier!”
Emmely & Massimo
“Galateo were amazing. They are such a professional set up and their attention to even the smallest of details was obvious on the day. The courtyard for dinner looked stunning, the table design/layout and the lighting was so eye catching and beautiful. The food was even more delicious than we had remembered from the tasting and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. All the little extras went down a treat, the gin bar proved to be very popular during the aperitif hour and it was exactly how we wanted it. I unfortunately didn't get to taste anything from the crepe and gelato stands, (too busy dancing) but heard plenty of reports that they were really good. The bar was also really well stocked so there was no chance of our guests going thirsty or hungry at all throughout the night :) Everyone commented on how beautiful the wedding cake was and they all really enjoyed watching it being made. We would definitely recommend your future clients choose this over a standard tiered wedding cake.”

“On behalf of my team and I we wanted to thank you so very much for your wonderful work for last week’s event. Everyone is still telling me to this day that the food was absolutely delicious and they were so happy with the presentation and all the wonderful surprises in the dessert room. Thank you for being so lovely and so easy to work with!! We can’t wait to plan another event with you in the near future!”
Jaimee & James
“I just wanted to say another thank you for our beautiful day. You even made the sun shine for us!! We had the most fantastic time, the food was amazing and the staff were brilliant! Please extend our love and gratitude to all those who supported the on the day activities, Bond and I had the perfect day that will live with us the rest of our lives. Again an extra special thank you for all your personal support, we could not have organized things if it wasn’t for your constant and extraordinary attentiveness. We cannot thank you enough for making our day so special and memorable!”
Nick & Bond
“Thank you so much for everything on Saturday. The Regan’s are very happy and thought the whole evening was perfect! It was a pleasure to work with your team and we look forward to working on future events with you!”
Chloe & Archie
"The food at our wedding was outstanding. Our guests commented that it was the best wedding food they have had - and personally we just wish we had sneaked in some more appetizers during our photo shoot. Special thank you also to the chefs who prepared our cake - the show was a real hit and the cake itself was delicious!"
Jack & Zahara
“We wanted to let you know that the food and service at our son’s Sept. 4 wedding was outstanding. On a scale of 1 to 10, it was a 10. The food tasted like each dish was prepared especially for each individual guest, unlike any other banquet event that we have ever experienced. The gluten free option was exceptional. My only regret is that there is not a restaurant in Florence that we can go to and experience the meal all over again (please let me know if there is one). Every guest commented on the quality of the food, and these are people who are very particular. It is obvious that Galateo was the best choice for catering an event such as ours. Please tell all of the staff that we appreciate the efforts that went into making our event such a success.”
Brittany & Derek
“I could never put into words how gratwful we are to you and your fabulous team for making our day so special. Everything was above and beyond any expectation we had. Simply sensational. So professional. The bar was incredible, I had no idea we would have dry ice or all of the other little details on the bar which made such a difference. It was all just incredible. Thank you so so so much.”
Elizabeth & Peter
“Thank you for a great event and thank you for the work you have done. I’m glad that we also have a very happy client as well. Please give my words to your team!”
