It would be difficult, if not impossible, to find a better place to have your wedding other than at Macaluso's! They really are top-notch in every way- staff, value, the atmosphere, the food, absolutely everything. We visited a few different places just for comparison sake, but we knew from the start that Macaluso's would be our place. We just got a good feeling after our first meeting with Nat, plus the venue itself is gorgeous both inside and out. The staff is highly professional- they were more than willing to help us out with any request, made great suggestions, and on our wedding day they provided flawless service both us and to our guests. They anticipated our every need and went above and beyond to ensure that we were able to fully enjoy every second of our wedding, which we did, thanks to them! We could not have been happier. This is a family-owned business, and they are completely honest - we went back the next day to gather all of our things that we left there, and there were gifts that we had no idea that people had left. They had stored my bouquet in the fridge so that it did not wilt and gave us more desserts to take home that night, which was great because the night before was such a whirlwind, that we didn't get to eat too much! All of our guests did though, because 3 months later, we're still hearing about how people cannot believe the amount and the quality of the food that was there! Nowhere in the Northeast is it cheap to have a wedding, but I really don't think you'll be able to find a venue that gives you as much of a value as Macaluso's provides. Now we're just hoping someone else will have their wedding there, so we can go back!!!

MACALUSO'S PROVIDED MY DAUGHTER WITH THE BEST WEDDING I COULD EVER IMAGINE. FROM DAY ONE, EVERYONE WE MET WITH WAS SO KIND. THEY WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE WAS ACCOMMODATED. THE BEST PART WAS THAT AFTER GOING TO SEVERAL VENUES, THEY PROVIDED US WITH A FINANCIALLY SOUND PACKAG

My husband and I were thrilled with how our wedding reception at Macaluso's turned out. From the moment we first visited Macaluso's to the last minute of our wedding, the staff has been nothing but courteous, friendly, professional, and a joy to work with. Maroon, as well as our maitre'd, and my bridal attendant went above and beyond their call of duty. Our guests are still raving about how delicious the food was. We couldn't believe how extravagant and amazing the venetian table was. The place is gorgeous and you will not be disappointed!

We cannot say enough good things about Macaluso's! I have been here for several parties in the past few years and we just had our wedding reception here. The service was absolutely wonderful, as always! Maroon and his staff truly made our wedding night an experience we will never forget! The food was phenomenal! From cocktail hour to the main courses to the Viennese Hour, everything was just perfect! We received so many compliments from our guests. I highly recommend Macaluso's to host any party. Thank you for making our wedding night so memorable!! :)

Macaluso's reputation for great service and even better food couldn't be more true. The only regret I have is hat I didn't eat more. A few weeks out and people are still talking about how delicious the food was. Elias, who helped us plan everything, is extremely patient and knowledgeable. I gave him complete creative freedom on set up and he wowed me with the results! They really know what they are doing! We also got the lobster flambé... well worth it! The show that accompanies it is way beyond what I expected and amazing!

I would also like to recommend Nick who does the chair covers there! He is great! And they really dress up the room and give it such a beautiful added touch!

Maroun (& later, Nat) made everything leading up to our wedding so easy and stress free!! The day of, we were so pleased with the attentiveness of our attendants and how professional all of the staff was! Our guests are still talking about how amazing the food and service was, and especially about how AMAZING the lobster flambe was!! We would highly recommend adding the lobster to all future brides and grooms having their reception at Macaluso's!!

The only issue that we had was that we left wine bottles to be used as our seating cards and favors at Macalusos'a the day before our wedding. Our plan was for each wine bottle to have a tag with name and table assignment. Somehow, we didn't bring enough bottles up to Macaluso'so the day before our wedding (can't imagine why?! Only a million things going on!! LOL), so we let them know that my father-in-law would bring them up for application of the remaining tags on the day of the wedding. Long story short, my husband, his parents, and I were so distracted that we forgot about the bottles needing to be brought in, and our tags were put out with no bottles!!!!! So we had some guests thinking that they were not getting a favor!! Added to this, we asked that the bottles not be revealed until most of cocktail hour was over because we didn't want people walking around cocktail hour with their hands full + a full bottle of wine, but that request was ignored. Finally, we asked that our picture and sign in board be set up for signature, which it was, but it was set up in the very front, which was very easy for our guests to pass by so we weren't thrilled with that.

Overall, if we could do it again, we would absolutely still have had our wedding here, and will continue to recommend it to anyone getting married or having a big event, but please keep in mind that little details that matter should be set up and prepared by you, I would not leave it to their staff again.

What can I say about macaluso’s, they were spectacular. The food especially the cocktail hour is phenomenal, it’s all my guests could talk about all night and weeks after my wedding. The prices are fantastic for what you’re getting, all my guests imagined my wedding to be a 100k wedding and it was FAR from that. Maroon and his staff are excellent and provide the greatest level of customer service. This place is exceptional and you would be dumb to not book here!!!!!!
