What our clients say about Capelli Foods in Sunshine Coast

Hey Michael,

I just wanted to say thank you.

The food was amazing, the snapper was hands down my favourite! Everyone loved the gnocchi and everything else that was served.

Your staff went above and beyond, they were polite and courteous. They answered all my questions and spoke to all of the guests.

We appreciate everything. Especially being able to help us out last minute.

We will definitely recommend your company to anyone that might be looking for catering for an event.

Thanks again!

Regards,
Rhiannon


It has been a while since we met at the 2016 Wine Makers event, however I just wanted to pass on how great the food was at The Sunny Kids Event at Ken Mill’s Toyota on Saturday night. My wife and I really enjoyed it and the people around us commented on how good it was considering how hard it would be to feed so many people and maintain such a high standard.

Thanks

Cameron


Hi Michael,

Thank you so much to you and your team for all your hard work. The food was incredible and everyone I spoke to said they really enjoyed it ( the vegetarians and vegans said their food was great!) We are so thankful for all the extra effort you went to for us, it really was fantastic and we would highly recommend you to anyone! You have been so helpful the whole process and I cannot thank you enough!

If you have any photos, we would love to see them!

Thank you again so very very much! You helped us to create the perfect day!

Hi Michael,

Just wanted to share our utmost thanks and gratitude for the advice, support and help provided by Mick and the team at Capelli’s.

We got an initial quote for our wedding from Mick as we were super impressed by his delicious cocktail menu. Unfortunately, due to an extremely tight budget, we eventually went with someone else. Despite this, Mick continued to be very generous with his time and considerable expertise and my Mum and I were in touch with Mick a few times over the proceeding few months, where he was more than happy to give us all the advice we needed.

We eventually hired Mick and his crack team to run our bar on the night of the reception. His team were outstanding, absolutely professional and efficient at all times and they kept the place humming along perfectly.

We cannot thank Mick enough for the time, energy and effort he gave to us free of charge, simply out of the generosity of his own heart. He took so much stress away from my partner and I with his knowledge and expertise and when you are preparing for a wedding, nothing is more valuable than the removal of stress. Thanks Mick, we’ll always be grateful for the help you gave a young couple with very little clue as to what we were doing.


Hi Michael,

On behalf of my family and I we would like to thank you for your professionalism and wonderful, most enjoyable food and company. We had such a great night and it was one to remember for my family and I. We can’t thank you enough. You were so helpful and accommodating to our family.

Thanks again and we will most certainly be recommending you to others.

Kind regards,

Sharon and Anthony


Hi Michael,

Thank you so much for the wonderful catering and service you provided for  our small 60th Birthday group for Dominic Pellegrino at Mitti Street.

The food was perfect and the quantity was on going and perfect the next day.  Many thanks and we will recommend you to our Melbourne friends who may require catering services at Noosa.

Kind regards,

Victoria White


Hi Michael

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you from myself and Phil for catering our wedding at Mango Hill Farm.

You and your colleagues made everything run seamlessly on the day. We wanted a special and memorable meal to share with our friends and family and that is exactly what you delivered.  Every guest who spoke to me commented on how much they enjoyed the food and how impressed they were with the quality and the size of the meals.  One of my sisters enjoyed her food so much that she went and asked you for another meal!  The vegan meal options you provided were delicious and held their own with the other food.

Every member of your team was a delight to deal with and we are so happy we chose Capelli Foods for our day. Thank you again!


Hello Michael,

Thank you so much for the delicious dinner which you prepared for my group last Friday night at Pelican Waters. The girls all loved it and especially your relaxed and efficient approach to the evening. Hopefully we will return and use your services again sometime!

Cheers,
Janet


Michael,

I wanted to pass on my thanks for taking care of the catering for my little wedding reception. I have told Alisha, but the quality of the food was absolutely exceptional. It exceeded all our expectations and more. Everyone was so impressed at the quality of the food, and Alisha was absolutely great. I cannot thank her enough.

I will happily pass on my recommendations to Capelli foods to my friends and family, and hope we can use your services again.

Regards,
Nick


“It was a degustation that had our guests searching for superlatives as each course arrived. The Beef Carpaccio, zucchini Flower, Celeriac Remoulade was “divine”, the Prawn and Snapper dumplings “exquisite”, while the venison was labelled “Superb”. All five courses were flavoursome, texturally balanced and impeccably presented. I can’t speak highly enough of chef Michael Hehir’s culinary talents; he’s innovative, matches wines perfectly and is sure to impress even the most discerning bon vivant!”

Dear Michael,

On behalf of my family and myself I would like to thank you and congratulate you on your outstanding catering and service that you have provided to us during our 5 day stay, at Mooloolaba.

We were all overwhelmed by the presentation, variety and most notably the quality and freshness of the seafood provided.

It would have been no easy task to supply such an ongoing banquet during peak season demand, so once again I would like to congratulate you on your proficiency, professionalism, timing and service and certainly would engage your company Capelli Foods (Michael Hehir), for our next function, corporate or family.

Regards,
Rodney Surawski


Hello Michael,

Its slightly delayed however we have finally got around to relaying our appreciation and recommendation for your services on our wedding day.

Thank you doesn’t really cut it. It is not very often that people attend a wedding and the highlight is the food. Guests are often sadly left unsatisfied with wedding food. However, this was certainly not the case for us. The food you prepared and served was an absolute highlight. We loved it!

We were so lucky to find you when we googled ‘wedding banquets’. I was nervous about how it would all turn out. All fears were put aside when we finally got to meet you about a month before the wedding to decide on a menu.

You are professional, friendly, accommodating and clearly very good at what you do. We received so many compliments about the food served at our wedding, it left us all wanting more.

We would highly recommend your services to anyone, no matter what the occasion. In fact we look forward to having you again at events in the future

We hope you have a lovely Christmas and all the best for the new year.

Thank you,
Emma and Mic


Hi Michael,

Just sending through our thanks to you and your team for helping in arranging a surprise luncheon for my mother’s 70th birthday (which appeared to be a daunting task prior to contacting you). The level of customer service you provided from initial contact up until final delivery was exceptional. Great website by the way. The final recommendation to go with the banquet and single serve desserts was a success! Thanks so much for assisting in the preparation of the dishes, all of which were delicious. Would not hesitate in contacting you again or recommending your services in the future. It’s the extra special touches provided that make Capelli Foods stand out from the rest.

Kind regards,

Shannon


Hi Mick,

So the weather may have let us down slightly on our big day but you and your team were great! Thank you for the lovely food, friendly service, and easy-going vibe you added to the day which is exactly the atmosphere we were going for! You certainly helped to make our day the great one it was.

Light and love x Carly & Dan


Dear Michael,

Michael, we can’t thank you and your team enough for catering our wedding in Maleny recently and we’ll always be happy that we chose to go with Capelli Foods.

Our 3 course degustation style dinner was exactly what we wanted and the food was absolutely perfect on the night!  Everything from the Antipasto bar at the start, to all the beautiful canapes and the 3 course dinner was wonderful!  Praise also to your wonderful team who did a great job on the night of looking our guests.  As an event planner and stylist and also a very passionate foodie, the meal was a very important part of our wedding.  We wanted something high quality and unique and that’s exactly what you gave us.

Since the wedding we’ve had nothing but praise for the food, it was one of the highlights for our guests.  Many of them said that not only was it the best wedding meal they’d ever eaten, but up there with the best meal full stop!

You can’t ask for better than that!

Please feel free to pass my details onto couples who are considering Capelli Foods in the future, I’d be happy to provide a very positive recommendation.

With warmest regards, Bec and Jim (Maleny)


I only have wonderful things to say about Michael, Capelli Foods and the whole crew. From start to finish they were friendly and professional. Our reception went off without a hitch, the food was divine…every guest I spoke to couldn’t help but rave about the delicious meals. My favourite part was that the crew were having fun themselves. Nothing better than hearing people at work enjoying each other’s company and the night as well. Thanks Capelli! You made a big event seem incredibly easy.

Kind regards,

Aim


Dear Michael,

Thank you for being a large contributing factor towards our holiday in Noosa being so special for the family.  Being able to enjoy our getaway, without the worry of preparing many meals for 10 people, made our time away even more relaxing and enjoyable.

The level of service experienced from our initial phone call and the menu choices, to the quality and delivery of the food were second to none.  Also, having the luxury of you cleaning up was a great treat.

Michael, thanks again for everything especially the extra touches on the last dinner of our holiday.

Georgy Trevor-Jones


Michael and the Capelli team were fantastic. Michael was great to deal with in the lead up to the wedding and it was evident from our first conversation that he knew his stuff. We loved the canapé and banquet style menu options and the food on the night was delicious. Many of our guests commented on the quality and how tasty all the food was. Michael and the Capelli team did an amazing job on the day of our wedding! Thank you so much and definitely recommend Capelli!

Thanks again! Helen and Jono


Hi Michael,

Apologies for not getting back to you earlier. We both went straight back to work afternoon so unfortunately no honeymoon which has made everything a little hectic.

The wedding was incredible and the food completely blew us away. We had guests complimenting our menu all evening and despite very full tummy’s from the canapés, the mains were absolutely perfect! The staff were incredible – so friendly and professional! I have attached some photos taken by our photographer for you and one of us with all our guests.

My only complaint is that I didn’t get to have the Pork Bao which I had been dreaming about because the bridal party attacked our platter while I was walking down the aisle again (things were a bit too emotional the first time round!). If would consider sharing the recipe, I am all ears! No fault of yours – I blame my husband who ate 3 of them in addition to all the others canapés.

We cannot thank you enough for your amazing support and fantastic team! You made the catering process a breeze and put my bridezilla moments at ease even for non-food related things! My dad is still going on about the food and he is a difficult man to please! Our vegan guests also LOVED the options you created for them.

Thank you so much Michael – you and your team truly made our wedding perfect!

All the best, Lindsay and Blake


Dear Michael and Carolyn

Last Saturday evening your company catered my daughters wedding at Alaya Verde Retreat Cooroy.
My wife and I were very impressed with the food which was of a very high standard, well presented and tasty.
Your staff were very helpful professional and courteous.  I would have no hesitation recommending your company for anyone requiring catering.
Thank you for helping to make our event a very memorable occasion.

Many thanks, Glen and Annemarie Stephenson.


Hi Carolyn,

Haley and I would just like to pass on our sincere thanks for your service at our wedding. We were amazed at how both you and Michael conduct your business and personally invest yourselves in it to give your clients the a truly remarkable experience from start to finish. We heard nothing but compliments from all of our guests on the quality and taste of the food along with the first class service that was provided on the night. You are both a credit to the hospitality industry and a shining example of excellence to those who compete with you. We will always recommend you to our friends, family and work colleagues for all future occasions.

Regards, David


I want to thank Michael and his staff for coming to our place and catering my daughter’s 21st and stepdaughters 18th combined birthday party. What a night and there is no way it could have been successful if it hadn’t have been for Capelli Foods. They were incredible. The food was just awesome and everyone commented on how fantastic the Canapés were. We were so grateful and wish to say THANK YOU again. You guys are just the best.

JoAnn


WOW – thank you so very much for Thursday night!  The food was even better than I anticipated.

Michael, you and your staff ran the event so smoothly for me under some pretty ordinary circumstances – I just wanted to thank you and the team for their professionalism.  You also left the office in great condition when you were finished.

I hope you will accept the call when we plan our next event Michael – I would love to use you again.

If you don’t mind giving me some feedback – do you think I can run an event for 85 people in our office again?  Whilst the rain was a drama on the night we got great feedback from a few clients (which hopefully represents the majority!) and I love the idea that I don’t need to go ‘off site’ for the bigger events – just hope I am not dreaming!

I seriously cannot thank you enough – the feedback on the food from everyone was the same – you are awesome!

We arrived back from our honeymoon yesterday and its been a crazy week – so before I get caught up with everything else I just want to say the BIGGEST thank-you to you and your team for making our reception so amazing last week.

Dayne and I both were blown away by the incredible service of all your staff – and the food was so delicious, I still have guests raving about how great it was! You guys played a huge role in the success of the evening and I am so happy that I chose Capelli 
And also, thanks for the beautiful wine glasses!

Please let me know if there is anywhere I can leave comments or ratings for Capelli because I will be giving you 6 out of 5 for everything!
When I get a chance to look through all the pictures I can send you some of the reception with the food/dessert table etc?

Thank-you!

We saw Capelli’s banquet menu online and it looked perfect for our backyard wedding. We decided to go ahead with a food trial to sample Michael’s culinary abilities before making the final decision. Michael came to our house for the trial and without a doubt proved that Capelli was what we were after. Michael was well-prepared, professional, down-to-earth and more than happy to chat and explain his creations to us. The dishes we selected were sensational and exceeded our expectations (the pork belly and roasted lamb rump were favourites!) Not to mention, the desserts — beautifully-crafted and exquisite flavours. Needless to say, we proceeded with booking Capelli and have the utmost confidence that the food will be a very memorable part of our wedding.

Sam & Steph


Hi Michael and Carolyn

Just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with both the food and service today. Everyone thought that your menu was fantastic and all of your business cards were taken home by our guests so I expect that you might have a few more customers in the future. Everything was really outstanding and I couldn’t be happier.

Cheers Danielle


Just wanted to send a massive thank you your way for everything you did for us on sat 21st… everyone loved the food and what you delivered was more than anything we could have wished for! Also the leftovers went a long way in feeding the army that stayed at the farm.. I think it took us 4 days to chew through all of it!

Thanks again Mick for making the night a great success,

Regards Danae


Right from our initial conversation, Michael sounded like he was well organized as far as his prompt return of phone calls and the first draft of the courses we intended to have for our menu.  Twenty-six guests for our wedding including a handful of food and beverage industry professionals.

Champagne and canapés were served on the deck followed with a five course degustation with matching wines from Austria, France and premium South Australian selections.  Michael’s team worked in and around our guests seamlessly for over six hours without any fuss.  Kitchen service was quiet and extremely efficient, whilst his team of wait staff were professional, courteous and very responsive.

In my career of twenty plus years managing premium restaurants, hotels and wineries across Australia, I am very pleased to recommend Michael Hehir’s company Capelli Foods, to anyone seeking a premium culinary experience at the premises of their choice.

My wife and I agreed that the evening was without any doubt, a complete success due to Michael and his teams’ attitude and professionalism.

Steve & Georgina Street


Michael and his team from Capelli Foods recently provided catering for a corporate dinner of 300+ persons that I was responsible for the co-ordination of.  An event such as this brings with it numerous logistical challenges, however Michael and his team handled everything with no fuss whatsoever.

The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and I received a lot of positive feedback from the attendees to the dinner. Thank you so much for helping to make this event such a success!

Sharynne


What a wonderful way to enjoy the night, friends, good wine and great food in the comfort of one our homes.

The food started with two entrées to choose from – crispy pork belly on pureed cauliflower (my mouth is watering just thinking about it) and Hervey Bay scallops with pancetta and a micro salad (divine). Our private chef had made everything to perfection.

As we enjoyed our first course, our chef went back to the kitchen and prepared the main course. We had a selection of duck, and not just any duck – it was the most succulent confit duck leg I had ever had. It was literally falling off the bone. The other main we chose was Nolan’s eye fillet. The meat was so tender and went so well with the eggplant parmigiana. I was so full by the end of the first and second course and there was still more to come.

The final course: dessert! Time to get SWEET. We had the Moscato pear mille-feuille – I still don’t know how I managed to fit that in but I finished the plate; it was just too tasty to stop. We also had mocha brûlée with an almond biscotti, served in a cute little coffee cup.

They say you eat with your eyes and all our food was exceptionally presented and all done in the comfort of a friend’s house. By the end of the dessert our chef cleaned up the kitchen and started packing away all his things and we were left to enjoy the rest of our night.

All in all this had been one the best nights out for a while, not to mention some of the best food I have ever eaten. I will definitely be doing this again, but next time I’ll try the Lamb.

Ally G


Just a short note to say thank you for the wonderful job done catering my wedding in September. Taking a leap of faith and booking an ‘out of town’ caterer I had never sampled before was nerve-wracking for me, but I needn’t have worried for a second. My guests are STILL raving about the food and everything went so smoothly from the first time I contacted you!

Your staff looked after my guests brilliantly, particularly my two pregnant friends who were provided with plates of ‘baby friendly’ food just for them (after a moment of panic as they realised they were unable to eat the first few canapés that came out). Everyone was well fed with food of a very high quality and my husband and I did not have to worry about a thing on the night.

Tara Stewart


Thanks again for such a fabulous class. :) Olivia really enjoys it and it’s so lovely for us to come and share with her, I just love that aspect of the classes the best I think.

Angela


Thanks for everything – food was wonderful, guests loved it. We had some last minute cancellations so I was worried we had over-catered, but they seemed to rise to the occasion and eat it all up. You and your staff were so pleasant and helpful on the night and you were a great help in the lead up to it and so accommodating. Thank you. Neither Steve nor I thanked the chef or the wait staff on the night for the great job they did. Please pass on our thanks. I only wish we had a good excuse to ask you to cater for us again.

Becky


Just wanted to let you know that the wedding was absolutely wonderful and perfect in every way. I had so much feedback from our guests regarding the catering. They absolutely loved the variety of the food, the quality and the fabulous service by your staff.  I can honestly say your staff went out of their way to make sure our guests were well looked after. They also left the kitchen spotless. BIG thank you to you, Michael and your team – you made the day extra special!

Sia


Just want to say thank you very much for everything you supplied on Saturday for my daughter’s wedding.  All the staff were very nice and did a wonderful job.  The food was beautiful and very well presented – compliments were given all night and still are.  I will highly recommend yourselves to anyone that is looking for some extremely good caterers.

Sonja Crane


Thank you for making my daughter’s wedding just that bit more special by sending two wonderful people as Annalisa and Jay. They were friendly, professional and the kitchen was spotless when they finished.

The topic of conversation the next day was how wonderful the bride/wedding was and which canapes they favoured and how delightful your staff was. The business cards Annalisa left all went in wallets as there were none on the tables when it was over.

Thank you again and we will definitely be visiting your restaurant as we’ve heard good stuff and I think it will be worth the drive.

Ronni


I’m sorry it has taken Andy and I so long to let you know how much we appreciated Capelli’s catering for our recent wedding on the 16th December at Rainbow beach. We can claim many excuses for this including the busy nature of weddings, the sensuous honeymoon, Christmas and new year silly season. But if truth be told we have just been dwelling in the luxury of early wedded bliss and then alternatively madly getting back into the exercise regime to lose the wedding and honeymoon kilos.

We were absolutely impressed with the food, the service and the friendly, professional and discrete staff you sent to serve for our special day. Thank you and your staff for helping to make our day memorable for us and our guests. We could not have asked for better service or a more beautiful menu.

Chrissi


Thank you sincerely for the opportunity you have provided Nic (and our family – hoping he will develop a passion for chef-like skills). The photos reflect he is very comfortable in your space. Lunch was such a welcome treat. He really was chuffed.

Sally Garrahy


Thank you very much for once again providing beautiful food and a great service! All the guests and especially myself where very happy with everything… Best wishes and thank you! Mick, also thank you for organising my kitchen cupboards, whilst you where cooking for 35 people! They do look a lot better!

Malika


Just wanted to let you know what a fabulous dinner we had. Our chef Darren was fabulous. The food he served was amazing with all guests raving about the experience. I would not hesitate in recommending Capelli or the service provided by Darren. Thankyou again!

Kathryn Ford


Capelli catered for our small and stylish beach wedding – every aspect was impressive from the menu choices (we wanted organic local produce and a lot of vegetarian fare) and price ($30 a head) to the flexibility of staff in accommodating my nervous fiddling with the menu. The food looked beautiful and tasted amazing: everyone was crazy about the stuffed zucchini flowers. Nothing was too much trouble for Carolyn and I have pleasure in recommending Capelli’s to anyone looking for up-to-the minute catering hidden away in regional Queensland!

Jacqueline Jago


We had a great night and weekend. The food was fabulous, although there was a bit of fighting over the entrees. The pork belly was amazing and those that had it were not too keen to share. The duck melted in our mouths and the brûlée was fantastic. Muhammad was very friendly yet professional and we could not have asked for better. Thank you very much for making my 50th a very memorable occasion and I will certainly recommend Capelli to our friends. Will definitely meet you in Gympie soon.

Chris


What a joy it is, when travelling for work, staying in a regional city with little appreciation of where one should eat, to stumble upon a gem such as Capelli on Duke! This is dining at its best. The tapas menu allows the diner to partake of, in fact to indulge oneself in, a rich variety of dishes from a splendidly conceived menu. Each dish was beautifully prepared and presented. And the flavours! It was a ride between the pleasure of the delicacy presently before you and the anticipation of the next to come.

Fabulous! As I was leaving after my first experience of Capelli there was only one last thing left to do – book for the following night! Gympie should be proud and grateful to have a restaurant which would stand up and be counted in any of the major cities. See you again soon, I hope.


Sandy, Brisbane


Wow, we had the most gorgeous dinner at your place last night. How great that Gympie finally has such a beautiful restaurant. We’ll definitely be back soon – actually thinking about coming in this Friday night. The atmosphere was so intimate and the decor elegantly simple and the fairy lights won me over completely. The food was out of this world and not unreasonably priced like fine dining can be. The Shiraz was excellent but most of all I adored the big glasses. My husband has broken all of mine over the years so I was thrilled to find out that you sell them at the restaurant. I know what I’m asking hubby to buy me for Christmas.

The wicker chairs on the deck actually looked uncomfortable so I was so surprised that they were completely the opposite. I can’t say what my favourite dish was but I did LOVE the zucchini flowers. How fantastic! My husband took me to Benardos on the night he proposed and we paid an absolute fortune for some of the worst food I’ve ever eaten. I only wish he’d taken me to Capelli. Thank you so much for a beautiful evening. I look forward to many more.

PS – Special thanks to Chloe for her numerous trips to the bar and to get more bread and explain every dish. The patience of a saint. And Michael, it was a pleasure to finally meet you and I thought it was a lovely touch that you came out to say hi to your guests. Consider me a regular visitor from now on.

Kylie Best 


Just wanted to say a big thanks for your lovely catering! There were so many compliments for the food – everyone loved it! It was good to be able to do our “own thing” and the instructions were super clear and so easy to have everything looking professional. I especially loved the whole canapé menu and was very happy with my choices. Also the children absolutely RAVED over the gluten free mini meatballs – I don’t suppose you could share the recipe could you?  It is my daughters birthday next weekend – we’ll be at the Gold Coast but she asked for mini-meatballs and I’ve never managed to make any that they loved so much! Thanks again to you and your staff!

Sharon


Many thanks to you & Mick for making Saturday a fantastic day for not only us; but our guests as well. It was such a pleasure to enjoy a lunch with friends without the fuss…and no matter what anyone says, the food just doesn’t taste as good when you cook it yourself!!! Everyone enjoyed their chosen meals, the food was of a restaurant quality with the same service (and one bloke did it all by himself!). The fact that Mick also cleaned up as he went was a bonus, and this morning I didn’t have too much to do! Mick took a photo of the crew, and I will send you a copy once I get a hold of it!! We will definitely use Capelli Foods for other special occasions, and what a wonderful way to have a dinner party with good food, good friends, and good views at our home.

Chez Gill, Gympie


After moving to Gympie from Spain we wanted to start our new life with a house-warming party for our new friends. The intention was to give them an idea where we were coming from and what life and food was to us before. For that reason we chose the tapas variations from Capelli Food. We hired chef Mick to cater for our event. He came an hour before everybody arrived and brought lots of amazing different kinds of tapas. He prepared them fresh when everybody arrived. It was a continuous flow of wonderful food that went on for 2 hours. Everybody enjoyed the opportunity to try new dishes and probably fell in love with new things they didn’t know before. This was a truly special and great night and helped to make us feel at home and welcome right away.

Klaus and Claudia Kruppel, Gympie


We enjoyed a lovely dinner with sensational food with our friends thanks to Michael on Saturday night!

Bonnie Hollander, The Palms


Thanks for a great evening last week. Everyone had a great time the food was fantastic and it was a real treat not to have to clean up. All our guest thought that having a Personal Chef on site was a fantastic idea.

Jo, Gympie


Just a note to say thank you for the great night we all had at the cooking class a few weeks ago. It is a great idea holding the class at peoples homes. The three course menu that we all learnt to cook and then sit down and eat at the end of the class was a great social and learning experience. The food was wonderful. I recommend these cooking classes to everyone. A great idea for getting friends together. learning about cooking and having a lovely social evening as well.

Letisha Ison, Gympie


Capelli Foods catered for the 30th Anniversary of Gympie Regional Council Friends of the Library, sixty people and they can be recommended. Knew what we wanted when we asked for a modern High Tea. The food was just right and service efficient and prompt.

Pat Towner, Gympie


The Gympie Anglican Church recently held its Debutante Ball at the Gympie Civic Centre. We had the privilege of having Capelli Foods cater for this event. The attention to detail was excellent and the flavour and quantity of food was superb. We highly recommend Capelli Foods for any catering event required.

Leanne, Gympie Anglican Debutante Ball Committee


Just a quick email to thank you for the great job you did on Saturday night. Everyone enjoyed the food and lots of people wanted to know who did the meal. Thank you, too, for the great cleaning up job… such a relief after a long night. We are more than happy to recommend you to any one who wants to use Capelli for a function.

Hope you had a safe trip home and good luck with all your upcoming ventures.

Janet Dixon, Montville Village Bed and Breakfast


Congratulations – I worked with you on Saturday night at the Muster and it was a privilege to watch your very professional team at work in a kitchen.  The food was very well presented and your procedures were well executed.  I heard lots of great complements about the food on the night.  I do hope that you are financially rewarded for your efforts.

Julie Worth (Puddy’s daughter), Friends of Kadanga


I love what you have done with the place you are so amazing and talented! The bright interior, the open space, the hypnotic tree – it is just so perfect. Our night was perfect and most importantly the FOOD! Every one of us LOVED it so thank you for what you have done for Gympie very much appreciated.

Love Tatjana, Gympie


Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed our anniversary. Thank you to your staff and chef for producing a very tasteful and delightful meal. We had a wonderful night and hope we were not too noisy. Some of the costumes were really out there. WOW. The restaurant had a very homely feel and even though it was well attended we felt like we were the only ones there. Congratulations.Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas season and we will see you again in the new year. Thanks again.

Julie Hasthorpe, Gympie


Capelli Foods catered my wedding. With little resources or direction the outcome was a success with the bride, groom and guests raving! Very organised. Fresh/organic produce used producing delicious meals. Lots of comments about the lamb cutlets!!! Courteous and professional staff throughout the whole process. I would recommend Capelli to anyone for any event and I cannot wait to visit the restaurant!

Leanne and Dan Hewes, Hervey Bay QLD


We recently held my husband’s 40th birthday at Capelli on Duke. Having been in marketing and events my entire working career and lived overseas enjoying many wonderful dining experiences I have a high standard and expectation when it comes to special occasions and what a venue needs to deliver.

We hired the restaurant for the evening and hosted 30 guests at a large decorated single banquet table – it looked amazing. We had friends from Sydney, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast all make the trip to Gympie for this evening. Michael, Lisa and the team were amazing we had full access to the restaurant on the day to do all the decorating for the evening, nothing was to much trouble. The menu that was designed for the night was nothing short of spectacular and the food that was delivered to all our guests was exactly that!

The service was impeccable and the team of wait staff couldn’t do enough for us all. Our friends were taken aback that such a high quality restaurant existed in our regional town! They were all so impressed by the food and still talk about it today. One couple who regularly travel to dine at some of the best gustatory places Queensland has to offer said Capelli on Duke was up there with the best, and they would be back to dine again!

I cannot speak highly enough about the quality of food and service not to mention the space itself, thank you and I can recommend Capelli on Duke to anyone whether it be  just dine out and enjoy great food or to host a special dinner Capelli on Duke should be top of your list.

Shannon McVey, Pie Creek


Hi Michael (and team!),

Just wanted to shoot you a quick email and say thanks for all your recent hard work at the wedding of Gabi and Jason. Your team were a delight to work with and excelled in everything they did on the night in extreme weather conditions. I have had nothing but great feedback on the food and the Capelli staff and I will not hesitate to recommend Capelli in the future. Hope to work with you again soon in the near future, potentially on a smaller private chef dinner or intimate dinner party occasion in Brisbane. All the best!
