What an absolute incredible experience. Michael and his team catered our company holiday party and they did not disappoint! From coordination and communication all the way through to the food being served, Michael truly provided a 5-star, high quality experience. His food is AMAZING! We were blown away by the quality, similar to what you would expect to be served at a 5-star, high end restaurant. He was a great guy, super friendly and flexible. I plan to use his catering services again and again and have told many of my close friends and family about him already. Please do not hesitate, Lil' Leto is the best catering around! THANK YOU MICHAEL! More...

This was a fantastic experience! I highly recommend Lil Leto for anything food related. We hired he and his team for our company Christmas party of about 25 people and it was amazing. Food was perfect, very personable and easy to work with. Will use again many times! More...

We had Chef Michael do a plated dinner for eight in our home last night and what a fabulous, exceptionally delicious experience! From the appetizers to the main course we ate delectable and appealing food. When they left we had a sparkling kitchen and no dishes to do! Chef Michael has an amazing array of menu choices for any kind of party you want to host, my husband and I highly recommend Lil’ Leto Catering. We will use him again! More...

Lil' Leto did a phenomenal job! Service was top shelf. Food was amazing for sure, and they were able to address significant food allergies/dietary restrictions my group had. The went well and above what I had expected. I can't say enough positive about our experience. I will certainly book them again in the future! Thanks again Michael! More...

My boyfriend hired Michael to do a cooking tutorial for me for my birthday. Not only was the food fantastic, Michael was patient and very thorough in teaching me so that I now feel confident making multiple dishes with what he taught me. We had so much fun cooking and learning with him and can't wait to use his services again! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for great food and great times! More...

I booked Lil Leto Catering for a bachelor party dinner at our Airbnb.  He arrived on time, made an amazing dinner from the appetizers to the entree and he cleaned up everything as if he were never there.  Would absolutely book for another event, thanks Leto! More...

We hired Lil' Leto for brunch on a ladies' weekend getaway and had a great experience. Chef Michael was away but we had the pleasure of Chef Tina and her assistant Lisa who made us a delicious meal including hydrating cold pressed juices. They're such a delight, professional, energetic and I highly recommend them for any occasion when you need a private chef. More...

Wish I could give 10 stars. Mike has done a couple dinners for us before and just totally rocked. I hired him and his team to do my wedding on 10/19/19. When originally planned it was for max 100 guests, and ended up being 160. This curve ball was no problem for Mike. He made us an amazing menu including truffle rice balls (my absolute favorite), carnitas tacos, guacamole wontons, imported meats cheese and spreads, salmon, seasonal veggies, and the most incredible chicken I've had in a long time. The food was loved by all of our guests! What really put it over the top for me was Mike's attention to detail. He knew that my wife and I would be go go go and he made sure the personally prepare plates for us and deliver to wherever we were at that moment. That really went a long way for us (and kept us going throughout a long action packed day/ night).Thank you Mike and lil Leto team for making our special night so great! More...

Hired Michael to come over and do a private healthy cooking class for my girlfriend for her birthday. Not only was the food phenomenal and healthy, my girlfriend had an absolute blast and can't stop talking about how much she wants to cook more now. Michael is an excellent teacher and we had a wonderful night with him! More...

I met Chef Michael at a private cooking class hosted at his house. Turns out he doesn't do a lot of classes but he totally should! Michael is a phenomenal chef. He's extremely pleasant, patient, informative, and has really fantastic stories related to the history and nutritional context of food preparation. It wasn't just him barking chef orders at us. He really took the time to explain why we were preparing the recipe the way we were, ways we may want to alter recipes in the future, and a plethora of stories from his own experiences from kitchens locally and in Europe. As someone who doesn't cook for themselves often, I now feel fully confident to prepare fresh focaccia and beer-battered chicken parmesan in a homemade tomato sauce (with cinnamon and nutmeg)! The coffee was delicious. The puppies were enchanting. Not to mention one of the best tiramisu in my life! I would absolutely use Chef Michael for all my custom catering and cuisine needs in the future. It's one week later and I'm absolutely craving that chicken parm today. 5 stars is not enough! More...

I hired Chef Michael for a private cooking class for some friends and I, and it was amazing!! I love his teaching style: he instructed us while he watched and we did everything so we could learn in a hands-on way how to make some pretty complex food. Before then, I had never made bread, pounded meat, filleted anything, made marinara from scratch, battered anything, or deep fried anything ever, and I learned how to do all those things! On top of that, Chef Michael was full of really interesting information about the food we were making, from cultural history of the food, to nutrition facts, to flavor profile tips—we had such great conversation the entire time. We even left with TONS of leftovers! I can’t recommend his services enough! 11/10! More...

Don't look any further for a caterer in the area! I was visiting for the weekend and needed to arrange dinner for a group of 19. Michael was out of town but connected me with one of his colleagues and I couldn't have asked for a better experience with Tina and her team. She made picking out a menu seamless with so many incredible choices in line with the theme I wanted. ALL the food she made exceeded our expectations. Our whole group was blown away by the meal! And opt for the cookies, you can't go wrong! More...

I hired Michael to cook for my husbands 40th surprise birthday party. He was absolutely fantastic. He made pizzas, chicken wings and salad. I let him know the number of people for the party and there was plenty of delicious food. Our guests commented for a few days after how wonderful the food was. Even my MIL and FIL who are hard to please left with full bellies and commented on how great the food was! He brought everything he needed with him and cleaned/washed anything that he used of mine. He was friendly, personable and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend using him for your next party! You won't be disappointed ! More...

We first met Chef Michael Leto at a friend's birthday party that she had catered and we absolutely loved his pizzas! We had a variety that night of five different choices of pizza that were all exceptional. When it came time for me to plan my birthday party, I knew exactly where to go...Michael! We had 20 people and two small children that absolutely loved his pizza! The two-year-old ate 4 pieces and he had to make another cheese pizza just for the two girls! Everything he prepared that night, the fresh salad, chicken wings, and of course "THE PIZZAS" were a huge hit! Don't hesitate about hiring Michael to cater your event, top-notch and professional all the way!! He will definitely be our go-to for all of our private events! More...

We hosted a bridal shower brunch & the last thing we wanted to do was worry about the food, especially making sure serving it all together and keeping it warm doing so. So we decided to have Mike cater our bridal shower brunch and it was the BEST thing we could have done. Mike created a fantastic menu for us based on what I envisioned for the bride and groom. All of the food was absolutely delicious. Many of our guests commented on how good the food was even after our event. We created a menu that consisted of Gucatons (delicious), varieties of bruschetta, baked eggs & veggie frittatas, half pork and half beef sliders. Everything was so delicious! Mike took the stress off my shoulders and handled all the food. He arrived on time and was very professional. It allowed me to enjoy and host the event without stressing about feeding our guests. The presentation of the food was perfect. I would absolutely in a heart beat work with Lil Leto Catering again. More...

Michael was the constant professional and had great planning. He came to our business and researched the space. We collaborated on the menu and he gave great insight into seasonal menu selections like melon and prosciutto. The team also cleaned up well after and brought us cookies a week later!! I highly recommend Michael for catering for small businesses. Thank you again for making our event a success. More...

Michael recently catered my birthday party for ten people. My friends raved about the food. It was a simple menu of 5 kinds of homemade pizza, a healthy salad with strawberries and homemade chocolate chip cannolis. Michael served and cleaned up with style. He is also very flexible with his menu choices so you can design your own menu. We will be hiring him again! More...

We had a girl's weekend in Scottsdale and hired Michael for our Friday night dinner. He was great to work with!! We were a hard to please group of 14 with some gluten, dairy, red meat, and vegetarian dietary restrictions. Michael made sure there were multiple options for everyone, and the girls were so impressed and thankful for his delicious creations!He was very respectful of the group and arrived, cooked, served, packed up our leftovers for us, and cleaned up the kitchen all while the group continued to have fun. If you are looking for a chef that will be personable, flexible in menu creation, and create food for your event that will leave your guests talking about it days later... Lil' Leto Catering is it! Thank you, Michael! More...

Booked Michael's company Lil'Leto Catering for a surprise bachelor dinner for my son and his groomsmen. After a long hot day in the Arizona sun golfing, the guys came home to find a wonderful talented personal chef preparing a delicious meal for them! I am in PA, and working out the details with Michael was a breeze via emails and phone calls. I also got to face time the event and met Michael. The guys thoroughly enjoyed the amazing food and friendly personal touch by Lil'Leto.Thank you Michael! More...

While visiting Scottsdale for my sister's bachelorette, we wanted to have one night in to spend time with one another instead of constantly being on the go. I came across Lil' Leto catering and boy am I glad I did! We did not make it easy for Michael... as not only was he asked to prepare a meal for 15 girls but we had a ton of allergies! He maneuvered each of them without batting an eye and also various options the night of! He was always very responsive, by phone or email and worked around our schedule. Chef Leto prepared a fantastic meal and we truly enjoyed our night... Don't hesitate in booking him for your next event! More...

Micheal is great! I am so impressed by his knowledge of food and health... I always get excited when I have the opportunity to enjoy his cooking! He values quality ingredients, uses local products when available, and always produces delicious meals. It also helps that he is Italian (he makes awesome biscotti, and his pasta are always drool worthy). Next time your in need of catering don't hesitate to contact him, he is super friendly! More...

Chef Michael catered an amazing event for me this past weekend. He was great to work with especially given the short notice. I received so many compliments on the great food. From foodie adults down to the pickiest of kids they all loved it. The dessert was a big hit. My kids couldn't wait. Loved how innovative some of his dishes were. There was plenty of food I never had to worry about running out. His staff was a lot of fun and really made sure all my guests were happy and full.

My family originally hired Michael to cater a house warming party, we loved him so much we asked him to help with our thanksgiving meal also! ! His food is incredible and his team is so personable. His risotto balls and pesto sauce were my fav. He made us Sicilian stuffing for thanksgiving, and I'll admit at first I was sad it didn't have bread, but after eating it the bread was not missed at all! If you want outside of the box Italian cooking we suggest him for your next event, he won't disappoint!! He even keeps you from peaking at your pies to many times while they are trying to bake :) So thankful we found him! More...

Michael Leto created the most amazing experience for our Wedding Rehearsal Dinner. Not only was he able to create dishes that everyone from kids to grandparents loved, and throw in some extra surprises. .. he also fit right into the family itself. His presence was that of an old friend (which he is to my wife!), and his care, attention to detail & skills as a chef are outmatched only by his big heart.

Stop whatever it is you're doing and book Michael for your next event. He was incredibly professional, kind and worked precisely within our budget and dietary requests. Oh, and the food was incredible. I contacted him to cook one dinner and one brunch during my bachelorette weekend in Scottsdale. We were a group of 14 girls and wanted a taco bar with organic chicken/steak for dinner and pesto eggs Benedict for brunch. The food turned out better than we expected and he added a bunch of personalized touches like homemade salsa verde (delicious!) and guacatons (fried guacamole filed wontons). The brunch pesto was also homemade. He does not cut corners, and delivers beyond what he promises. His helper was also kind and professional.  Highly, highly recommend! More...

Lil Leto Catering knocked it outta the park this last weekend. Service for a wedding is no easy feat and these guys made it feel as though it was just a walk in the park. Apps came out in a timely manner, were always available and tasted great with very diverse offerings. The main course had balanced yet complex flavors which I enjoyed as sometimes wedding food can be bland to try and appease the masses. It was a meal to remember and I thought it was a nice touch to make the meal as special as the day. Now where LLC really shined was the staff and service.. great teamwork, personable people and the best part (aside from food) Chef Michael could be seen throughout the service ensuring everything was going according to plan. Well done guys. I’m excited to see the trajectory of this rocket ship of a team, in my eyes they can do no wrong. After service I got to shake hands with Michael and looked forward to seeing him on Chopped.. He made it seem as though I may have been laying on the compliments a bit thick, but seriously... this guys is talented. More...

Micheal has catered two events so far for me and my family. The first one was my daughter's 16th birthday and the second was a get together for parent's of my daughter's teammates.  In both cases he put together a great menu, had a great crew to help him, they were attentive to making sure the food was replenished and we had so much delicious food and leftovers in both cases.  His prices are very reasonable and having him there to help cater allows me the opportunity to enjoy the party as well without having to be serving the whole time. Did I mention how delicious the food was?!  I highly recommend Lil Leto Catering and I look forward to having him cater our next party! More...

We hired Michael to teach a private in home cooking class for my Mom as a Christmas gift. After researching a number of options I’m so glad we chose Michael. He was extremely easy to work with, bounced around a few ideas and came up with a menu that was intriguing and unique, combining his heritage with our interests.

Michael has a great charisma and led a wonderful class. He showed us a number of new techniques and was attentive to questions - he made the whole event engaging and really enjoyable for all of us. He is extremely adept at working in foreign kitchens and never missed a step.

We learned how to make Bolognese sauce from scratch, porchetta with asparagus, biscotti, and cannoli. The food was wonderful and left us raving about the evening for days after. Well done. He helped to give my mom the perfect Christmas present.

Looking forward to using Michael again in the future!

When you live in a newly built apartment, the limited kitchen & entertaining space necessitates you use the complex 'club house'. I recently hosted a sit-down Sunday dinner in honor of visiting French friends. I invited a small group (12) and decided I wanted to just sit back and enjoy the gathering, therefore I needed to find a caterer that was flexible and reasonable. I found Lil'Leto Catering. I meet with the owner/chef Michael, who gladly visited the space, inspected (including the poolside grills) and worked with me on the courses, type of food and service style.

The organic food was scrumptious, proper temperature and plated beautifully from appetizers to dessert. Staff were quiet and very attentive.

The arancini (risottoe w saffron meat in center w onions and peas) were so lite. I chose a second appetizer - grilled calamari w a delicate fresh lemon garlic parsley topping - it was so tender! I could go on, but a thoughtful vegetables, pasta, and meat courses were followed by dessert -double chocolate tiramisu.

Yes I did go all out (but pricing was reasonable), but you can choose from so many dishes, you will not be disappointed so give Lil'Leto catering a call.

Michael is the best! I recently had Micheal cater a few meals for a large bachelor party and him and his team hit it out of the park. Every step of the entire experience, from our initial discussion, consultation about the menu, and then the actual preparation and serving of the meals was handled A+.The Short Ribs were so tender and cooked perfectly!The fried Ravioli appetizer was out of this world!Our breakfast selections of various frittatas and french toast was a phenomenal way to start the day!But these were just MY favorites, the other guys had rave reviews about everything we had that weekend. Start and end your catering search with Lil' Leto. More...

I have enjoyed these pizzas twice now, both times in friend's homes. The pizzas are all so delicious and the crust is out of this world!

We used Lil Leto catering for a bridal shower last weekend and I was blown away by his food and his professionalism. He came up with a menu that fit with our theme and it was delicious! There was a good variety of tasty fresh made bruschetta and delicious homemade biscotti (They were so yummy when I dipped them in my champagne I'm pretty sure I forgave all my enemies).

He stayed to refill our platters as people ate and was very personable to all our guests.

Added bonus: he's easy on the eyes.

Thanks Michael! You were a big hit!

Mike came to cater a bridal shower I was throwing for a friend.  He was professional, confirmed the menu with me ahead of shower, and was on time.  The food was amazing, everyone was talking about it- but the best part was Mike's interaction and easy going nature from the moment he showed up until he took the trash out for me.  The brides 86 year old Japanese grandmother could not stop talking about Mike and his food the entire party!  She definitely had a crush.  I would 100% recommend hiring him to cater for any event.

Michael did a fabulous job catering an office party for our parent's luncheon. We had a pretty tight budget we were working with, but he pulled out all the stops and gave us an incredible menu!

Amazing! Chef Michael was phenomenal. The food was spectacular ... That quinoa salad was to die for, we were still eating it 2-3 days later. I need the recipe. He was punctual, thorough, great personality, even hung out with us for a bit. I would hire him again and will recommend him any day, any occasion! Such a pleasure to work with. Everything came together without a hitch, without stress or even a bead of sweat. Thank you for making Leslie's Bday so memorable. - Ify More...

Mike has now catered for me at work 2 times and each time it has been beyond amazing. The bread is homemade and has more flavor than any bread I have ever had. The first time We ordered a tray of the Americano and then the Italia! My team loved all the sandwiches! Yesterday he brought a tray of ChickenMilanese..and OH MY GOD..that was the best sandwich I have ever had! It had a hint of citrus which was the perfect addition! Thanks Mike! I would recommend you and your company to anyone! More...

Michael is the epitome of a professional chef. I've been enjoying his creations for years. There is always something new whether it is an adaptation or original dish. Always made with the freshest of ingredients infused with love. His French/Italian infused menu is incredible, but is not limited to just that. The desserts are light and more than inviting. You ask, and he can make it happen. His passion for cooking is undeniable and delivers it with a big smile. His range of cuisine is nothing short of top notch. You definitely are going to want seconds. More...

They showed up early to get everything ready and stayed late to make sure the kitchen was clean and the dishes were done. One of his cooks even helped tend bar once she was finished plating everything! The food was absolutely phenomenal and I can't wait to hire Lil Leto Catering again to try out more of the menu options. Thanks Mike! More...

I have been fortunate enough to have known Mike since middle school. This guy poors his heart/passion into every aspect of his life and other's. Whether it was us sharing the Guard Positions in HS Varsity Basketball, or running our respective businesses now- Mike has success in his blood and a relentless pursuit to perfection. As a creative director myself, I started watching his short cooking videos back in 2009 to see if he might separate himself from the thousands of others doing the same. After watching his first video not only was I craving HEALTHY food, but I also felt like I just got out of a Nutrition/Botany/Agriculture class. perhaps one of the best facets of Lil Leto's Catering, is he knows his ingredients like the back of his hand. truly amazing stuff... I have been eating wisely now and find myself paying attention to every label I pick up on food shopping. mike gave me the opportunity to brand his company and design/install his catering van graphic wraps. Trust me when I say, Mike is one of the few EXTRAOrdinary men left around today and I look forward to pushing his brand to greater heights while keeping fueled on his 5 star Italian/French fusion cuisine.

Lil Leto Catering not only has amazing food but they are also very charitable. I hired Mike's team to help with a fashion show I put on for my foundation and he exceeded my expectations. We hand selected the menu together and came up with great items for my guests. The event we hosted helped to raise funds for families at the home who have a child suffering from a chronic or life threatening illness and that night we were able to raise almost $20,000. The event would not have been as successful if my guests were hungry or not loving the food. I saw people going back for seconds and thirds and we ran out of everything! I look forward to working together again and can't thank you enough for all your hard work that night! More...

Mike @ Lil' Leto made my birthday party absolutely phenomenal!Everybody loved his specialties,from the chicken wings with a Mediterranean twist, to the perfectly cooked Arancini and the authentic Italian pizza and focaccia. My mom (who is a real Italian who only eats Italian food and is very picky about it) loved the food and approved the authentic Italian style of every plate (especially pizza and Arancini).Another plus in using Lil'Leto is that Mike left our kitchen so clean, you wouldn't imagine that much food had been prepared there just few hours earlier!!!I would recommend Mike and Lil'Leto to everyone who wants to have gourmet home made delicious food at their parties, and I would definitely use him for all my parties to come!
