Many thanks to Michael and his staff for the most wonderful bridal shower brunch! I was trying to find the perfect menu for my sister's bridal shower, and Michael assisted me through the process, responding to my emails and providing any help I needed. Tina came up with lovely dessert options when I was low on ideas and not sure what to chose.When it was finally the day of the bridal shower, the brunch was delicious! Michael and Ryan were professional, friendly, and helpful. They were so fun to have cooking in the kitchen, it felt like having some (very qualified) friends making brunch! They cleaned up after the lovely meal and the kitchen probably looked better than it did before they arrived. The shower guests raved about the fun experience and fabulous food. I have already booked Michael and company for another event in September, how could I not? More...

Michael & his team did an amazing job catering for our small wedding in Cave Creek, AZ. We had approximately 50 people and everyone LOVED all the food. From the fried risotto balls to the salmon & beef tenderloin for dinner, everyone loved all their food. Michael and his staff were very professional and accommodating to our guests and made sure everyone was taken care of. We are from out of town, so didn't do a tasting, but based on reviews, I knew the food would be excellent, it did not disappoint. Everything was AMAZING! I would definitely have them cater for us again if we are ever in the area. Thanks again Lil' Leto Catering! :) More...

Michael and his crew were amazing!  We had 23 people at an Airbnb and used him multiple times during our stay. Food was ridiculously good and his recommendations of what to choose from his offerings fit the vibe of our entire trip. Highly recommend them if you want to have good food and good banter with the crew! More...

My sister recently celebrated her bachelorette party in Scottsdale and we made the greatest decision by hiring Lil Leto to prepare an amazing meal for 8 of us gals one evening! Chef Michael was super easy to work with in the weeks leading up to our dinner and able to accommodate everything that we requested (including some dietary needs) and more! He and his sous chef were professional, charming, and made us feel right at home while we wined and dined on their flavorful and delicious dishes. The two desserts we selected (yes, 2!!..we couldn't decide on just one!) were extraordinary. The "icing on the cake" was an immaculate kitchen at the end.I highly recommend Lil Leto Catering (Chef Michael Leto) and his team. They deliver a truly special culinary experience! More...

My wife and I hired Michael to cater our wedding. He was a pleasure to work with and made us feel at ease during the planning phase. His menu choices were tough to choose from because they all sounded so amazing. They did not disappoint! Our guests raved about the food and also about the service. They were fun and professional. His crew cooked all the food in our home and on our grill. It was very fresh and cooked to perfection. He also came by the tables as folks were eating to make sure they were all happy. Oh, and they left the kitchen spotless! I can’t say enough great things about our experience working with them. Thanks Michael! More...

Very highly recommend Michael and Lil Leto Catering! We hired Michael for 2 consecutive nights of in home dining for 19 guests. The communication and planning was straightforward and professional, and the food and service was fantastic! We opted for the Mexican Buffet with Taco Bar for the first night and an American Fusion plated meal for the second. The Mexican spare ribs appetizer was a personal favorite for many of our guests. Michael and his assistants were prompt, courteous and professional - if you're looking for an private chef experience you can't go wrong with Lil Leto! More...

I have nothing, but positive things to say about our experience with Lil' Leto! They have a great selection of menu items and the service was unmatched!

If you are looking for a caterer look NO further - Mike and his team are THE BEST. They show up on time, make food that is so good you will be talking about it for weeks, and when they are done your kitchen looks like no one has touched it - they clean, too! Mike is personable, professional and an amazing chef. Him and his team are outstanding. We enjoyed them for a private party we hosted at our home with a Mexican themed dinner - everyone was impressed, full and happy. Great job Mike! More...

Michael catered brunch for my cousin's 30th Birthday party over the weekend, and I can not recommend him enough!!I found Lil' Leto Catering just by googling private chefs in the area, and I am so happy that they were who I went with. They helped curate a very special day during uncertain pandemic times. Michael and Tina (Tina was his sous chef and a talented baker!) are both such a joy to be around, and the food was out of this world.Booking the party was super easy, we corresponded over both email and phone. Michael was super prompt with his responses and helped me make a custom menu for my cousin's small party. We discussed seasonal food options, and he even made fresh fruit purees for our mimosas and a special homemade cocktail for shots!Michael and Tina made us a delicious brunch with frittatas, thick cut bacon, potatoes, fresh fruit, and homemade Belgium waffles. Michael tried out a new recipe on us which was an amazing surprise! They were dessert arancini balls and were DELICIOUS. He even mixed our shots and walked around refilling shot glasses during the party (which everyone loved lol). Tina baked us an epic confetti cake, that we enjoyed through out the night.Overall, they were a pleasure to work with and I highly suggest booking them. We are already trying to figure out the next time we can book him :) More...

I can't say enough wonderful things about Lil' Leto. The planning part of our 50th anniversary party went so smoothly. Michael had so many good menu ideas. Once we planned the meal, his communication skills were excellent. He answered all my questions along the way with such a positive attitude. He never made me feel I was asking too many questions when in reality I was. The meal was delicious from start to finish. People could not stop raving. Tina, his pastry chef, made a beautiful wedding cake and the best part was that it tasted as delicious as it looked. If you are having a function, I would call him immediately. He was the best I've ever worked with in all respects. Nan waldman More...

Lil Leto’s Catering is bomb!! All of our guests kept raving about Michael’e food! My mom requested to speak to him about how fantastic it was! Bc of Covid, some of our guests didn’t show up for the reception, but that allowed for many to go for 2nd, 3rds, & 4ths.

The main reason we chose Michael as our caterer is that he cooks all the food on site, not like his competitors who keep their food in warmers. And, he and his staff are super friendly and warm!

I made a suggestion to have risotto instead of rice, and it definitely completed the meal. He is a professional creator in the kitchen. Just mouth-watering food.

We are so grateful he catered our wedding!!!!

We hired Michael and his team the week of our wedding. Due to COVID19 our 150 guest party was reduced to 16 guests. The venue was at our home. Michael arrived while we were at the church to start cooking. Shortly after we arrived, appetizers were being served.

The food was absolutely delicious! The best compliment was from the groom's Lebanese father, who called Michael a true chef! Everyone raved about each plate, with the lollipop lamb chops taking the spotlight. Once the cake came out, Tina so graciously decorated it with the flowers from our maid of honor bouquet. It was perfect! In addition, the team cleaned up, which really saved us time and effort in the days to come.

We are so thankful and grateful to Lil' Leto Catering. Their warm nature and amazing talents were a wonderful addition to our special day!! We will hire them again and again!
