“She has gone so far above and beyond my levels of expectation in every single way – her extraordinary level of customer service from the moment she first called me to speak to me about the menu, to her incredibly polite mannerisms, her ‘never say no’ attitude, her ability to think ahead and her patience has made a very lasting impression on me and my family. She managed to please a large table of very judgemental Italians, something which should not be taken lightly. I cannot thank her enough for the efforts she has put into making our wedding so memorable”
