Your complete catering team for the most fun Milwaukee events
Perhaps the comment we hear most often from our clients is that their experience with us was so easy. Planning the details, finding a venue, designing the look, choosing a menu, customizing the bar services…between all of the components that go into a successful event, for clients to tell us that planning their event was easy means we reached our goal and that they had a very successful, fun and exciting event.
Picnics, galas, celebrations, fundraisers…all of these events have a purpose and a list of goals to reach. We align ourselves with what you hope to accomplish, meaning from day one, our planning, menus, service and more will be in support of what you want to achieve.
When we say exciting food, we mean more than delicious appetizers, buffets, plated dinners and dessert tables. We mean interactive presentations, chef action stations, passed hors d’oeuvres with the region’s finest serving staff, innovative combinations and intricate flavors, classic menu items and new looks on traditional favorites.
Custom menus are just the beginning. With the “Zilli touch,” part of our promise involves giving you the completely unique, innovative and one-of-a-kind everything. That promise goes for menus, presentation, cocktails, service, décor, details and the experience that you envision throughout your event.
Fun, Fun, Fun
Your celebration, whether it’s a fundraiser, anniversary, holiday event or something entirely different, will always be a fun and exciting event. We’re in the business to help you make memories and will work really hard to make sure yours are wonderful.
How We Work Together
Where would you like to host your event? Sometimes finding the venue can be a battle, but when you’ve worked with just about everyone in Milwaukee and the surrounding areas like we have, you learn which venues suit your specific needs and visions.
Consider using our one-of-a-kind venue finder to help you locate and investigate some of the area’s hottest, most charming, most beautiful, trendiest or elegant Milwaukee venues. Our event professionals are also here to help you talk through numerous venue options, walking you through what it’s like to host an event at each one of these 40+ venues.FIND YOUR VENUE
Deciding on a menu is simple, especially when you have someone who will listen to what you want to accomplish, what dietary challenges you or your guests face and the overall feel you want to give your event.
Whether you decide on some of the amazing items in our menus or ask us to help craft a custom menu that is totally unique to your event, our culinary team works hand-in-hand with our event specialists so that your exact wants are what you get.
We’re in the business of exceeding expectations, and our food has always put huge smiles on guests’ and hosts’ faces. We can’t wait to make your event delicious.BROWSE OUR MENUS
You will get terrific food, wonderful service, beautiful design and décor and just about anything else you need to make your event a total success. BUT, we want you to know that there is no commitment to working with Zilli when you first call, email or inquire about menus.
Your event should be perfect, and, ultimately, that’s exactly what we want it to be. We will listen to you, your goals and your ideas, and then offer you some of the best event planning and catering menus in the city. From there, we will work on making your event absolutely perfect.
Take a look at some of the recent events we’ve helped deliver. We’re happy to say each one was a beautiful, unique success!
When working together with someone who has this much experience (over 40 years to be more exact), there’s nothing quite like the confidence you get when you know that your event is in great hands.
After collaborating on all the ideas, you will be excited to know that we take responsibility for a very large portion of the event’s success, although all credit happily goes to you and your hard work. We thrive on the details and in helping relieve the pressure of hosting the perfect event by taking on that challenge ourselves.

Some of our first-time clients are surprised at how much we can actually take on. It all starts with amazing menus, which is typically the reason we’re called up on the first place, but that soon transforms into statements like, ‘I had no idea you could also take care of that for me!’ and ‘You have made this entire process so much easier than I anticipated.’ We are thrilled to provide such an impactful first impression on our clients because that means we get to see them again and again for the years to come.
