These early reviews are correct!! This guy is a NUT!!! I called about catering a small shower. First, I felt he was a bit pushy, trying to get me to lock into him with a deposit, even though the event was 2 months away and not sure of which weekend I would need. I was only calling around getting menus, prices, and ideas.
My niece had heard him on the radio early that morning offering half the price he quoted me.
The next morning, he called ME back. I mentioned what my neice had heard and he said " that was just a one day offer, needed to book that day". I said okay and I thought his quote was a good price anyway. But, I was stil calling around getting ideas and prices today and would get back to him. ( I WAS thinking if I didn't use him for the shower, I would for another event we have coming up- NOT now!)
Well, I can't believe how unprofessional, unmannerly, and how FAST this guy goes off! He replied " please feel free to call Undo's, they will charge you $14.00 more a pp,!! You can't go through a drive thru for my prices!! I don't know why ppl want me to give away my food!! You have a good day!! " THEN HE hung up on ME!!!
Wow wow wow. I think I just escaped a would be catrastify for our shower.
Would NEVER recommencd due to his temperament and I'll manners!!

We called Mark about catering our wedding of 300 people. We decided to give him a call because we had tasted his food at a friend's wedding and enjoyed it. He quoted us an excellent price and was very cordial when we first spoke to him. About 2 months before the wedding, Mark called demanding we pay him in full for our food. I was a little surprised by this because we did not yet have an accurate guest count since the invitations had only gone out a few weeks prior to this. I told him my concerns and he made up a bunch of garbage about all of this information being in a contract we had signed when we went in there to meet with him. The problem was that we had never been down to see him (I don't even know where his place is located) and everything had been discussed over the phone. The other problem was that we never received a contract in the mail to sign. So I told him I would not pay anything until I saw that contract. He got extremely upset and became very unprofessional. At that point, I decided that we were not going to deal with someone like that and I asked for our refund back. Mark responded "People in hell want ice water" and also said "F*** you.' I threatened him with a lawyer and only then did he agree to mail my deposit back. He the proceeded to call me back 10 minutes later to tell me everything I had done wrong on MY end of this contract (which again, I had never even seen). He also proceeded to threaten to take me to court if I mentioned anything bad about his business. Does this sound like someone you would want to work with for you wedding?? Probably not.

I've been to That's Italian a few times in the last couple of years whenever we need to entertain dinner guests. My husband and I have bought breads, spreads, olives and cheeses from here. Not having a drop of Italian blood in my veins, I appreciate the staff helping me pick out items and we've never been disappointed. Last week, my husband bought a loaf of bread to make bruschetta and it ended up being too hard. He simply called the store and told them what happened and to make sure they had another loaf that we could stop by to get on our way to a friends house for dinner-- we got there intending to buy another loaf and he gave it to us since the first one was hard. To all those with "issues," I think it's easy to complain about something, but there really isn't anywhere else where you can get the quality items they have here at such reasonable prices. I think an unfair picture is painted of the management-- Our experience has been that if the issue at hand is discussed like civilized human beings between those parties directly involved, they work with you and do their best (and sometimes more) to rectify the situation. I'm looking forward to using this business more in the future! Thank you!

They catered our party. I ordered EXTRA food. At least 15 extra meals and there was not enough food to feed the people who made it to the party. (which was even less than originaly ordered for) He also plays with the price to suck people in!! If the cost is "TO GOOD TO BE TRUE" with this place it really is. Food was NOT up to anyones standards!!! Please save yourself the trouble!!!!

I went to my friends graduation party that was catered by this place. The servers were extremely nice but the boss had the nerve to send a VERY pregnant girl to serve the food. because there were few servers to transport the food, she was forced to drive the delivery van and had to do what looked like heavy lifting in 90 degree weather at an outdoor event. the special stuff like fruit and meat and vegetable trays ran out sooo quick i didnt get any. apparently more of it was supposed to come but never did.. i hope my friends parents can get their money back for the food they were shorted.. but from the sounds of it, im guessing they wont.

Mark Busack Owner of That's Italian here with a rebuttal to Lucy J. That very pregnant girl is one of our manager's and asked to serve the event. As for you not getting fruit or veggies, you are not the one that ordered the food nor do you know what they ordered or the quantities that were provided and you do not know of what you speak and extra fruit was sent to the event later that day. We are very responsive to our customers and provide a great value......where else can you get a meal like u had at $4/plate. Try going somewhere else and paying $13/plate for the same food. The internet is a great thing but people who comment about things when they do not know the facts should be quiet!

response to e.j.'s comments: The sandwiches were made to the specifications.......the same way we make all of our specialty sandwiches for the past 11 years. We have built a great reputation on our sandwich business.....ask anyone.....Hey E.J. why were the sandwiches half eaten when you returned them to the store and where were the other two sandwiches you bought? If you want your money back, you dont eat half of the sandwich before you return it....?It must not have been that bad!!!!!!

What ever you do, DO NOT order a sandwich from this place. I ordered a "Po Boy", which must rank as the worst Poor Boy I ever ordered. It came on Texas toast bread with ONE THIN SLICE OF ROAST BEEF!!. It was four times as expensive as Subway and Subway, if you can believe it, has way more meat. DO NOT ORDER FROM HERE.

- I stand by the review. Your sandwiches are not good. If you want a good sandwich, skip this place and go tot he 19th Hole. They have the subs from Caddy Shack there.

I had That's Italian Specialty Foods cater my rehersal dinner in Wellsburg, WV in December. We had jumbo cheese ravioli, chicken, red skin potatoes, and broccoli for only $5.50/person.
They offered free delivery and let me borrow sterno racks to keep the food warm. The food arrived in big insulated containers and was setup in the sterno racks by the delivery person. All I had to do was take the foil off the pans and put the serving spoons in. Everything else they did for me. They were on time and provided everything they said they would provide. The food was very good.

Great Sandwich specials daily. The restaurant has over 30 specialty sandwiches. They catered an event for me in June. The food was great and so was the service plus they worked with me to a package together that fit my budget which was limited.

I love That's Italian's Pizza.....Everynight after 4 they have a dinner special where they have a 14" pizza for $5 or $7. Some nights its buy one for $7 and get one free....

What a deal! Tonight they had $4.50 subs on sale for $.99 on a six inch sub! Try the subinator. One of the best sandwiches I've ever had.

What a great store!!!! They carry breadworks bread and all kinda of goodies from the Pittsburgh Strip. Plus the owner was willing to order in products for me that he doesn't normally carry. He put together a last minute Christmas Party for my staff of twenty people with one days notice!!!! Everyone loved the food!!! Meatballs and Chicken were awesome!!

We had That's Italian cater our wedding reception and we were very unhappy with it. We had an amazing reception, except for the food of course!!! I had called Mr. Busak a few weeks before because I had been at a reception he had catered and my food was cold there. He assured me that this would not happen at my reception. He was rude with my mom and I and we actually tried to cancel. (His policy says you can cancel 30 days before but then he refuses to let you!!) So we were stuck with him as our caterer. I was the bride so obviously I was the first person to eat at my reception. My food tasted like it came straight out of the refridgerator. I was absolutely embarrassed when almost everyone I talked to said how cold the food. We also paid for servers, who Mr. Busak assured us would clean up the tables and pass out cake. They did no such thing!! Not only did they not do their job, but they also threw away all of our food that was left over. We had out of town family and friends that would have loved to have leftovers the next day (especially when we could actually heat it up and eat it hot!!) The lady that was overseeing the workers was also absolutely rude!!!! I would not recommend them to anyone who is having a wedding. Every person that I talk to that has a reception catered by them has only one thing to say......COLD FOOD!!!!!!!!!
