The Lazaretto Ballroom and Capozzoli Catering provided us with the dream wedding that the both of us were hoping for, and we cannot recommend them enough. On our first visit, we were able to get a preview of the venue and food at their annual Italian Night. The room was beautiful and the food was remarkable. While dancing to our own wedding song, we knew we’d found the perfect place to start our lives together.

We met with Terri Wright, the sales manager, and began the process of planning our wedding. We both know people that have planned a wedding, and to a person we were warned of the stresses, arguments and drama that come with every decision. We are thrilled to say that we did not once have any issues throughout the entire process. Terri held our hand from day one and assured us that there would be no problems. There were times when we started to worry or were waiting for the other shoe to fall, but it never happened. As a matter of fact, we had 90% of the wedding done and ready for the big day a whole 10 days before the actual wedding day, which is a huge relief. Thank you for the exceptional work you did for us, Terri, Capozzoli Catering and the Lazaretto Ballroom.

On the day of the wedding, our room , which we had planned out with Terri, looked great and was exactly how we had pictured it. The staff provided excellent service and were both friendly and efficient. As for the food, we are both foodies who notice every detail. To the head chef and the kitchen staff, we simply say “bravo.” Each appetizer, hot or cold, from ravioli to shrimp, was a great way to start our party. We are also both steak lovers, and the dishes that were served to us were nothing short of perfection.

Our wedding day was a day we wish we could relive every day, and The Lazaretto Ballroom played a major role in that. Thank you to everyone, from management to staff to the kitchen. The party you threw for us was the best way to start our journey as a married couple.

Our wedding ceremony and reception just took place at the Lazaretto Ballroom on May 15, 2015. We only booked the ballroom back in January so we didn’t much leisure time. We fell in love with the sales manager, Terri Wright instantly. I cannot stress enough how easy going and accommodating she is. Any questions or concerns Terri responded in a timely fashion with great insight and guidance. The Outside patio was a perfect setting with the decorated arbor and white folding chairs for our 100 + guests. Also the grounds around the building offer great picture opportunities whether by the water or the old firehouse. The ceremony flowed right into an amazing cocktail hour and reception and plenty of food and booze. The room was more beautiful than I had imagined. And the staff hands down the best around, super polite and accommodating. Our parents and older guests are still commenting how thorough the wait staff was. Not to mention the food! It was delicious. We did meat carving stations and everyone raved about the cut and tenderness! Our night was unforgettable. I highly recommend checking out the lazaretto ballroom. You wont be disappointed.

We just had our wedding at the Lazaretto on May 2nd. We booked about a year and 9 months out, and thanks to Terri, it was the easiest year and 9 months of wedding planning! The package the lazaretto offers makes everything so simple and stress free. Working with Terri, the sales manager, makes the process so much fun! She is truly wonderful and goes above and beyond to make your day special. The food, drinks, and staff are all great. People are still telling us that it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been too, with great food too! We had our ceremony on their outside patio, which is only about a year old, and it was beautiful. We highly suggest checking out the Lazaretto!

When we first met Terri Wright (Sales Manager) and we checked out the Lazaretto Ballroom we just knew this was where our wedding celebration had to take place. We fell in love with Terri and the ballroom immediately and chose April 24, 2015 as our reception date. When we started discussing our plans with Terri she came up with several fabulous ideas that we loved and would have never thought of ourselves. She said her job was to make us happy and she exceeded in that department. Terri and the staff went above and beyond to make our day so very special. The room was breathtaking when we saw it. It looked even more spectacular than we imagined. We have nothing negative to say at all. The food and presentation was wonderful as well. The bridal suite was amazing. During cocktail hour Terri came out to remind us and our photographers of the time because she wanted us to enjoy the bridal suite for a little bit before introductions. We were so thankful for that. Terri and staff were phenomenal.

We had our wedding at the Lazaretto on March 28th, 2015. Terri was wonderful to work with. She genuinely cared about each detail and making our special day a memorable one. I would highly recommend this venue. It was affordable, and beautiful. Our guests were very happy with the bartenders, and not only because our guests like to drink (a lot lol) but because the bartenders were fun and personable. Also, they did not run out of any alcohol or beer which I have seen happen at many weddings I've attended. The cake, which is provided through Masters Baker and part of the wedding package, was delicious, even after it was smeared on my face. The food was very good including all of the appetizers. Terri did a great job making sure we had everything we wanted and did so while keeping within our budget. We told her we would definitely have our next wedding there! :) Thank you Terri and the entire Lazaretto staff!

My husband and I had our wedding at the Lazaretto Ballroom on March 27, 2015. We had both our ceremony and reception. From the moment I contacted The Lazaretto until the day of the wedding any time I had a question or concern Terri responded to me very quickly. She made every decision we made easy and gave great advice when I was not sure about certain things I wanted. The staff was great and made sure the bridal party and guests had anything they needed. There was never a line at the bar so our guests could get what they needed and continue to have a wonderful time. The food is out of this world! My husband and I could not decide what we wanted because both choices (filet and crab cakes) were so gooud we ate one of each! Many of our guests wanted seconds!! We were also able to get beautiful pictures a few steps from the front door along the waterfront.

What an amazing event. My wedding was 12/31/2014. Terri wright the maître de helped me incorporate NYE into our wedding. The food was delicious everyone keeps saying it was the best wedding they have ever attended. Soup to nuts, top shelf bar that was open all evening, and cheesesteaks at midnight. I have been to many weddings and NO one beats lazaretto for their prices. The service was impeccable, there was not a moment my husband and I went without a drink or someone asking what they could do for us. Thank you to the lazaretto ballroom for making our event the unforgettable ❤️

I recently got married the end of November and we had our reception at the lazaretto, hands down best decision we could of had. Terri made everything SO easy for us and helped guide us in every which way we needed help with. She pointed us to flowers, photographer, dj, tuxes and the bakery and all of which were fabulous. Everyone was so easy to work with and very hands on and efficient. Every time we had a question or concern and contacted Terri she answered right away and helped guide us. Terri was very easy to talk to and gave us such good advice on every topic. Everyone complimented on how fabulous of a time they had and how hard working the staff was. We want to thank everyone for making our day so very special!
