We ask every customer for their feedback, and this is how we have learned and grown over the past 27 years.


Feedback enables us to be able to advise future customers on how much and what type of food they should order for their event.

It's a huge responsibility to take control of a

special event and everything MUST be perfect. 


When the event is coming to a close and we

get great feedback from guests, we feel overjoyed.

I ordered the melanzane parmigiana for 8 and could not have been happier with everything. Our guests all agreed it was melt-in-the-mouth delicious. Shelly was really nice to deal with and the food arrived exactly on time. She threw in some Parmesan cheese and bread, which was a nice touch. I will definitely use Pappa Ciccia catering again and I highly recommend them to everyone!

Beth Wheeler December 23

Shelly & Tino delivered an absolutely amazing Italian feast for our staff Christmas lunch! The food was incredible - every detail, even the presentation, was to the highest and most thought-out standard. The service was outstanding and there was great communication from start to finish to get everything organised. We will 100% be sure to use them again in the future. Thank you so much to all of the team!

Roshan Vara November 23

We have just had our event catered for by Shelly and her team. It all went really smoothly. Shelly was reassuring, and responsive and gave great advice. The food was incredible. The service was efficient and really helpful! They went over and beyond- super happy and would highly recommend for catering services. Looking forward to our next event so we can have them again!

Elle Coleman September 23 

We asked Shelley and her team at Pappa Ciccia in Fulham to cater for my daughter's 21st birthday celebrations this week. They were outstanding. We met with Shelley on several occasions to discuss the planned menu for 25 under the stars in our garden. The food was absolutely delicious. From the arrival canapés to the sharing platters, and the parmigiana melanzane to the individual tiramisu. She even helped me with the hiring of tables, chairs, linen and glasses. The waiting staff she provided for the evening were faultless and my daughter had a 21st to remember. Thank you, thank you, thank you wonderful Pappa Ciccia.

Barbara Tartamella May 23

"I came across Pappa Ciccia because I was looking for a catering company to host my son's birthday party …. I couldn’t be luckier. Since then, I've had two events with them, one of which was an adult party with over 40 people. On both occasions, the service was implacable, the presentation WOW and the food delicious! Shelly has assisted and advised me every step of the way and her team is so professional but also super kind. Great for both adult's and kid's parties.

Thank you, Shelly…. for many more events together!

Maud Bergvelt May 23

It was a great success. Thank you so much. Everything was so beautifully presented and delicious. 

We will definitely order again! 

Stephanie Wilde May 23

Pappa Ciccia Catering (on Munster Road) could not have been more accommodating in meeting my needs, providing catering for a relaxed, intimate dinner for six ladies! I live in Fulham and have been to the restaurant/had occasional takeaways. However, this was the 1st time I’d used their catering facility. Shelly, who dealt with my query, was a pleasure to work with. I requested staggered delivery times for antipasti and mains. However, the mains retained their heat for several hours (except the pizza!), so could easily have come together. Delivery was prompt, and the drivers were more than willing to help carry into the house. The price reflects the food and service combined. Would definitely use them again. Thoroughly recommend. Thank you Pappa Ciccia

James Bell April 23 

The food was great. Arrived exactly at 6 pm as promised. Guests devoured the canapés. Thanks for facilitating such a nice evening.  


Rita Burria April 23

Pappa Ciccia is a fantastic restaurant with genuine ingredients and truly Italian food. The family-run team is helpful and knowledgeable, and no request is too much trouble. The pizzas are fantastic.
Love them and will give them my custom forever.

Marco March 23

Really amazing service, they are super kind and very helpful.
The food is amazing and they delivered for my son’s birthday (50 people) perfectly in time.
Once arrived the food was warm and tasty and the guests were super happy. What could I have asked more than this. Happy to have chosen pappa ciccia catering. Thanks

Millie McHugh Jan 23

Shelly and her team provided us with the most amazing catering experience for an office event. The food was delicious and the team were extremely efficient from the moment they arrived right up until clearing up at the end. The planning process was very smooth with Shelly being extremely helpful and happy to provide a bespoke experience, catering to all needs. I couldn't recommend Pappa Ciccia enough!

Natalia Jan 23

Everything was all perfect and on time.

We will be ordering more catering

no doubt.

Jorge 24th November

We have been customers of Pappa Ciccia for quite a few years now, and we can strongly recommend them, delivery or eating in, they never disappoint. We are very lucky to have such a professional family business in Fulham and Putney. Every year we order food for our staff Christmas party, and every year is a hit. The food is delicious, and the service is even better. Thanks!!!” 

Luca Fenaroli 6th November 22

Thank you very much for everything.

Everything was perfect and the waitress Jenny was fantastic.

Christine Lips 12th November 22

It was a big success! Everyone loved the food, and it made hosting a lot easier. It worked really well, from the delivery to how it was packed and how the little tiramisus came with their own spoon. Thank you!

Giles & Chole 22 October 22

A Massive thank You from both Chloe and me for all the incredible food at the party on Saturday evening! 

It was extremely well received, as it was all consumed apart from a few lettuce leaves! 

So many people have asked who had provided all the lovely food!

We've been very proud to say it was a local family business we love! 

Melanzane Parmigiana was perfect for our gluten-free guests - I work with one, and he was overjoyed at finding a new recipe he'd not had before! 

Your staff were amazing on the boat - please send our thanks to them! 

Adema 8th October 22

Shelly, thank you so much for the amazing food! It was a blast and everyone loved it. Your staff were amazing. Thank you so much again.

People asked for your details I hope it's ok to share.

Annaig Boyer 19th June 22

Sarah & Tom Blackwells wedding 11th June 22

We wanted to thank you, your husband and your amazing team for all your hard work on Saturday. You really did go above and beyond.
All my guests loved the food and had so many compliments about the staff and how delicious everything was. You were absolutely faultless and professional, the day ran smoothly, and that’s all because of you. X

Alexandra Slattery 25th May 22

We used Pappa Ciccia to cater my son's first birthday party, and it worked out so well! They were very easy to deal with and dropped the food off as planned in casserole dishes to be returned with a beautifully presented breadbasket. We ordered several large pasta dishes and salads, which were perfect for a party and as usual, their pasta was amazing.
I would definitely use them again!

Delanie Billman 22nd May 22

My husband and I used Pappa Cicca to cater our baby shower and the experience was wonderful. Shelley guided us through the ordering process and helped us customise dishes based on dietary requirements. The team that delivered the food were very kind and quick to get everything into our kitchen. We received a beautiful bread basket which was unexpected but such a delight. All the food was delicious and more than enough for our shower. I will definitely be using the service in the future for other events.

Nicola Fry - May 20th, 22

Ordered sneaky catering for my family of 10 people. -great "homemade dishes" which everyone raved about! Generous portions (which meant people left with a goodie bag)! Thanks for speedy turnaround and great customer service. Would recommend.

Viktoryia Hansen - Christian Dior staff party April 22

The team were extremely happy with the food!
Lots of people were asking me how I found you 😊
Everything was delicious! And delivery right on time - Perfetto!
Thank you so much again and again!

Sarah Jennings - April 2022


I used the service for my husband's birthday party.  The food was delicious, it came served in their own dishes so minimal work for me.  All my guests were particularly impressed by the Antipasto, which didn’t just look like an impressive centre piece but was a taste sensation. The Melanzane Parmigiana was particularly delicious too.  It was lovely to be able to trust Pappa Ciccia's advice with regard to portion sizes and what to order.  I will definitely be using this service again, many times 

Sophie Gaucheron Ward  29th January 22

Shelly and Tino did the catering for our wedding. We (and all our guests) were truly amazed at the quality of the food. Shelly worked really hard to put together a beautiful menu of canapes, antipasti and hot dishes. We then got pizzas delivered later in the evening. Not a single bit of any of the food was left! It was presented so well and tasted amazing.

Jackie Betts November 21

The food was wonderful, thank you - I think every last piece went! The portions sizes were generous but also perfect for what we needed.

Many Thanks again and I will definitely recommend them!

N. White 05 Jun 2021

Very happy with the service, quality of food and prompt delivery of Pappa Ciccia Catering.

Highly recommend.

Carole Mitchell - Heggs 23 May 2021

Pappa Ciccia catered my lunch for 14 people in our garden for my 70th birthday on May 17th, the day of partial liberation! We couldn't have wished for anything better. We had a large antipasto for 12 people and a vegetarian one for 2 people, 30 arancini which came with a delicious spicy tomato sauce and a huge basket of lovely ciabatta conveniently cut up into pieces. The antipasto had wonderful cured Italian meats including salami, mortadella and prosciutto, delicious Italian cheeses and the best olives all on a bed of rocket salad. It looked wonderful and was delicious. It worked so well for an Al Fresco lunch even on a rather dodgy day weather-wise this year in mid-May!
As ever, ordering was easy and efficient, and delivery on the day was also very efficient and cheerful brought by Tino himself.
It was exceedingly good value.
All my guests thought the food delicious, and one guest gazed at the leftovers with longing until asked if he would like to take some home which he did with alacrity!
Thank you so so much Tino & Shelley for helping to make the day so successful and happy.

SECOND Covid lockdown - better forgotten. Marianna Sabatino​ 11 December 


Hi Shelly

Everything was great! We all especially enjoyed the panettone with cream!

Ivy education - New kings road 11 December 20

We all had a lovely evening and the food was fantastic. Thank you for your flexibility with the last-minute time change and for making the two deliveries. Thanks also for clearly labelling the gluten-free options.

The canapés were excellent and very nicely presented.  

The puddings were all delicious, especially the brownies, and everyone loved the mulled wine too.

Harry Simpson 24 Aug 2020

Shelly and her wonderful team, catered for my daughter's Baptism reception, the food was delicious and very generous portions! The chef prepared everything at our home and he had a colleague assisting him with serving our guests. All our guests loved the food. The chef and waiter tidied everything up beautifully our kitchen looked as if no one had cooked there let alone for 30 + people. We will be returning customers. BR Harry

L.Chanroux 31 Jan 2020

The team at Pappa Ciccia were great when organising food for approximately 30 people for a recent party we organised at home.

Shelley was really helpful in the design of our menu providing the right amount of advice without pushing us to order more.

On the day of the party, the food, plates and cutlery were delivered right on time and the team were happy to spend a bit of time helping us set up.

Finally, the food was amazing, the appetisers were exactly the right size, the sharing platters of cured meats and cheeses offered a great selection and the hot dishes provided a comforting homemade feel. A special mention goes out to the desserts (tiramisu and panna cotta) which had our guests going in for seconds and thirds.

Overall, we had a great experience with Pappa Ciccia, would use them again and have recommended them to friends.

Chris Ruddick Nov 2019

Absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. A great selection to choose from and really good communications. They brought a little bit of Italy to our function in Putney. The presentation was superb and immediately gave you the wow factor. The canapés tasted even better than they looked and every one of the 70 guests loved it all. Mains and dessert also lived up to a very high standard. there was a clear passion from the staff in how the food was presented and they fully engaged with our guests. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again and will be recommending them to others who hold functions at our

Rowing Club.


Magnus & Nina 2nd Dec 2019

We had Pappa Ciccia cater for a drinks evening with 85 guests. I cordially recommend it. Reliable, punctual service at drop-off (and collection the day after) on nicely decorated large platters. Staff removed all wrapping and were fast. We had 7 varieties of which the meatballs and the prawn skewers went the fastest, although everything was finished early on during the evening. Each piece is XL sized for canapes, so good value - and, more importantly - delicious. Thank you all at Pappa Ciccia.

Philippa 11 Nov 2019

Pappa Ciccia provided the catering for a family birthday event which had 50+ people with an

almost even split of kids and adults. The whole process of discussing, ordering, the delivery was seamless, and the food was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed by all. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it! Thank you

James 04 Nov 2019

Very flexible offering, able to make subtle but important changes.

My guests thought the food was delicious and looked beautiful. Arrived right on time and as expected

Jenny 03 Nov 2019

I had a very positive catering experience with pappa ciccia. They were very flexible in accommodating my demands, even for a last-minute change. The food was of very good quality and well presented

Franck 19 Oct 2019

Friendly advice, really good food and well presented, I highly recommend the catering services for your party, and events.


Patricia 21st Sept 19

Pappa Ciccia catered at the family home following the funeral of our mother for about 60 to 70 people, a third of whom had come over from France. Everyone was full of praise for the canapes provided and for the waiter's efficiency and courtesy vis-a-vis the invitees. Although this was a sad event, everyone was able to enjoy celebrating in style the departure of our much admired and beloved mother. I would recommend Pappa Ciccia its staff and its food to all concerned and take this opportunity to thank them for their professionalism and kindness.

Marina 10 Jul 2019

Very helpful, and our guests loved it

Sam Parker Bowles 25 Jun 2019

Great service and great produce

Sophia 24/6/2019

Pappa Ciccia catered for my son's Christening and first birthday party. The service I received from the initial enquiry was spectacular. Shelly did a site visit with me to confirm the layout, food options and staffing numbers. The food was fantastic, beautifully presented and tasted amazing. Weeks later, guests are still commenting on how lovely the food was. The staff were very professional, arrived on time and was attentive to the guest’s requirements. I will use Pappa Ciccia for future events and have recommended them to friends and family. Thanks again, Shelly, it was a pleasure working with you and your team.

Maroua 23/6/2019 

This is the first time we have ordered from pappa ciccia catering! They are so understanding and helpful. Even though we planned a last-minute birthday party, they were flexible and made sure everything is perfect. And I had a few chances one day before the order and they always made sure I was happy and I get what I want to. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to plan big or small parties. The food quality is amazing! And the decoration of the food was outstanding. We love this family restaurant and have been going to the restaurant for over a year now. Thanks so much to the whole team who

made everything possible. This is definitely not the last time I will book them.


Sophia Tabiowo 16/6/19


Thank you very much for your help, the food was amazing, and your staff were great. Everyone took the leftover food home!!

Michele Kaup 4/6/2019

Working with Pappa Ciccia was amazingly smooth, considering I was in the US. We were able to coordinate a graduation party many miles apart only because of Shelly’s patience and wonderful suggestions! We had dietary issues that Shelly accommodated as well. The food was excellent and everyone raved about how delicious everything tasted! We ordered appetizers, salad, bread and entrees - vegetarian and meat products so we definitely touched Pappa Ciccia’s entire food gamut. Highly recommend!


Lorna 3/6/2019

Pappa Ciccia recently catered for my daughter's birthday party. The food was well prepared delivered on time and tasted delicious- all the guest's children and adults loved it. Pappa Ciccia also provided a fantastic waiter who worked super hard before during and after the party to ensure everything ran smoothly and all the guests had plenty of food and drink. I really can’t recommend them enough. If you are having a party and looking for catering for adults or children, go for pappa Ciccia - they won’t disappoint!

Veronika 25/5/2019

Amazing service, nice, attentive and of course, great food that impressed everyone at my event.

Shannon 13/5/2019

Very quick and easy service! Would use again for a party!

Florence 7/5/2019

Great Food! Lovely team! Perfect for parties!

Ruth Gonzales17/4/2019

Their delivery guys are very organized. I like that the food is packaged well and still warm when I served it. Their Beef lasagna is very popular and got many praises, highly recommended! I ordered penne Napoletana, fusilli pesto pasta and a variety of pizzas and they are all good. It was a good choice and Pappa Ciccia did not let us down.


We greatly enjoyed the food they provided along with the professional catering service.

Pauline 8/2/2019

Excellent food, charming service and generally a very good experience

Caroline T. 2/12/2018

Plentiful, delicious food, delivered on time. Excellent

Amie Reid20/11/2018

My company have been using Pappa Ciccia for work events on a bi-annual basis for about 3 years now so that's a good indication that we love it! Very professional delivers on time and the pizzas are amazing.

Moritz 25/9/2018

Excellent food, delivered on time and very friendly service; everyone at my party loved it! Thank you very much.

Leslie Palazzuoli 13/9/2018

Pappa Ciccia catered my 16-year-olds birthday party for over 100 people on a Thames riverboat. The food was perfect! They made the planning process easy by recommending what would work best and they delivered to the boat right on time. Everyone enjoyed the food and we had a great time! Thank you Pappa Ciccia for making it so convenient and delicious.

Luisa Creutz 9/7/2018

From the word go Shelly and her team were efficient, detailed and easy to work with. The chef turned up on time to set up and worked quickly and cleanly with limited time for my event. Needless to say, the canapés went down an absolute storm with my very foody friends and many asked where they were from! I couldn’t be happier with the service and food. Highly recommend for events!

Gill Kavanagh 27/6/2018

Thank you so much for the delicious food and charming staff. It was just perfect. I had not heard of you before and chose "blind" from the website. From the minute the staff arrived (bang on time) bearing the most gorgeous food until they left, leaving everything spotless, everything was brilliant. Highly recommended. Gill

Payal6 12/2017

I have chosen pappa ciccia to cater for my event in January and so far the service and flexibility has been wonderful. I would definitely use them again and we often to the restaurants as a family.

Mrs Fideli 28/10/2017

I have eaten at Pappa Ciccia a number of times and found the food consistently good. So when I had the opportunity to organise a meal for a large group of people for my club, I naturally turned to Pappa Ciccia. The portions were very generous and they catered equally well to the meat-eaters as the vegetarians. As for the presentation, the attention to detail and taste of all the food was wonderful, everyone had seconds and there was even a rush to take home the leftovers. Pappa Ciccia you made me look very good. Thank you

Vanessa Rezende 31/8/2017

Dear Shelly Thank you for making the most gorgeous food for our party for 130! Everyone raved about the food, even our pickiest gluten-free guests. Thanks for coming early to set up – everything looked gorgeous and your staff were attentive and professional. I will definitely be using Pappa Ciccia again for our catering needs. Thanks again!
