The service at Biagio was excellent. Our coordinator there, Sylvia, worked with all of our vendors to ensure the night wen according to plan. The place was decorated beautifully, even more so than what we imagined from picking our colors and decor. The wait staff was professional throughout our wedding, and we are still getting phonecalls about the food and very friendly bartenders. In addition to all of this, the price was perfect for our budget and very reasonable.

Working with the Event Coordinator, Kim, at the Biagio was perfect from start to finish. She is great at her job and helps keep the bride sane :) Biagio's food is AMAZING and all of our guest raved about it. I am what most people call a "control freak" and I had complete faith in Kim and her staff. They made our wedding day absolutely perfect!!

Great food. When you go for your tasting, make sure to bring at least 4 people- it's a lot of food! Beautiful, soft look to this banquet hall. We worked with Kim Olney- who is truly experienced, good working with people and good at working through events!

Our wedding was held at that National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame and was catered by Biagio’s. I worked with Kim Olney – who really did keep me sane throughout the planning process! When they say Kim does it all, they are not kidding! Kim may be the hardest working lady in the catering business! She was even returning my calls when she was home sick with the flu. She understands that brides-to-be want everything to perfect, and is so patient and understands all of her clients' needs. She made me feel that I was in good hands, and she really delivered. Kim even went out of her way to find suggestions for vendors such as florists, djs, etc. that were within our price range. Anything you need for your wedding, Kim has the answers and is so accommodating. Even when our guest count changed dramatically during planning, Kim was able to accommodate us. The food was great and included the wedding cake in the price. Her team even set up all our favors, place cards, etc., for us at the venue. Her entire team was very efficient and organized. They made the entire night go so smoothly. We had a hot dog cart come out toward the end of the night, which was big hit with our guests. Thank you, Kim, for all your hard work. Our wedding went so smoothly, and we really couldn't have asked for a better team to help our day be perfect.

Kim was a pleasure to work with and the food was out of this world.

Kim was like a wedding coordinator ready with suggestions for centerpieces, layout of the room, and other wedding day ideas.

We received a lot of compliments on the food from the appetizers --- Franks in puff pastry, stuffed mushrooms, and shrimp --- to the family style meal --- Salad – Biagio Mixed Green Salad with a choice of Ranch or Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing, Pasta – Penne Tomato Basil, Entrée – Chicken Ala Biagio and Sirloin of Beef with gravy and mushrooms, Potato – Double Baked and Vegetable – Green Bean Almondine.


The service was excellent (we had 220 guests). Kim was also responsible for another venue the same evening but she made sure she let me know that ahead of time and the person who would be in charge on the premises. Kim was there when we arrived, made sure she let us know when she was leaving and when she would be back – her staff was more than competent to handle the event, she has obviously trained them well.

Having Kim as our catering contact was like getting a weddong coordinator for free. She took our favors (and such) the night before and set everything up for us. The linens were perfect and the wait staff never seemed unprofessional. They truly transformed our venue into a great place to have a reception. Even when guests started arrving an hour early, they went with it in stride. She asked if we wanted to serve early (because everyone arrived early) and you would never have know that it wasn't supposed to be that way. Everyone said they liked the food- I know we did!

Biagio's was a great choice for us. We had an off-premise wedding, and Kim and her crew were very accommodating! We had a buffet with a carving station, and the food was outstanding! The price was VERY affordable, and the service was excellent. Biagio's surpassed our expectations in every way. They helped us personalize our venue and were helpful in making decisions. I highly recommend Biagio's!

If you have a wedding w/ a budget, Biagios is the place to go. Sylvia was my wedding coordinator and anything that I wanted, she was able to help with and make sure it happened. Since I couldn't set up the tables the night before the wedding, Sylvia just had me drop off everything that needed to be in the reception hall, on the Wednesday before the wedding and when my husband and I walked in for the first time, I was almost in tears because everything was so much better than what I had planned. She followed all the directions that I had put in the boxes for her and then some. I had a personal assistant the whole night, getting anything I needed out of my bridal suite or putting anything in there, she was just a complete joy. When I first walked in she greeted me, and she made sure that I was comfortable, and if I needed anything she was right there. She even handed me and my husband our first of many drinks of the night, lol! The venue was just amazing, since they had it redecorated in the summer before hand it was just gorgeous. All of our guests were comfortable and we got so many compliments about the venue and the food from our guests. The wedding cake was included in our package that we chose and it came from a local bakery in Skokie, IL. The cake was just too gorgeous, it almost killed me to cut it, but it was well worth it. The prices were great. We had a chicken plated dinner, and the basic package is what we got, which included an open bar for 4 hours, the cake, plated dinner, free valet parking for our guests, as well as red & white whine all night on the guest tables, free champagne for the head table. We had about 170 guests and that's including adults and children and the total was about $7000-7500 in total. We shopped around a couple of other places before this one, and many of the venues did not provide discounts for children 12 and under which I found a bit outrageous because alot of the children probably wouldn't have eaten the food we chose for the adults. The kids 12 and under recieved kids meals. Chicken fingers and french fries. The kids loved it. Kids 0-3 were free of charge, 4-12 were $24 and adults were about $56 a person so after all the shopping for venues, we felt that Biagios would give us our moneys worth. I've been to 2 weddings and numerous other parties at this place, and I really think that this was the best.
