Nanina’s presents you with more than 50 years of catering tradition and a spectacular multimillion-dollar renovation. Our lavishly manicured grounds complete with garden terrace waterfalls, stream with your personal bridge and Florentine arbor, provide the perfect backdrop for your outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. Winding marble staircases, a “Juliet” balcony, and hand-painted cathedral ceilings are just a few of the amenities that embody this Tuscan villa architecture.

Every affair starts with our premium package of which includes Nanina’s best of the best seafood bars and end with our Viennese displays. In fact, our Master Chef Vincenzo who has been with Nanina’s since its inception is famous in his own rite for his authentic recipes. After thousands of rave reviews regarding Chef Vincenzo’s original pasta sauces and Italian delicacies, Nanina’s has answered the public’s request for access to our products. In December of 2005, Nanina’s In The Park Gourmet Sauce made its debut at Monmouth University to 380 guests from area businesses, and met with unprecedented success. The school’s entrepreneurial class chose Nanina’s in the Park and Chef Vincenzo, for their class project that year. Building on their original venture, Nanina’s has designed, developed and brought forth to the general public (with discerning palates…) four delectable, homemade, gourmet, Italian sauces. Now available at your local grocer or via the web at www.naninas.com, are Nanina’s original Marinara, Vodka Fra Diavlo and Tomato Basil Sauce. Recognizing the hard work and effort put forth by both the students and the University, Nanina’s has earmarked a portion of the profits for an entrepreneurial scholarship for the students of Monmouth University in appreciation of their efforts. If exceptional cuisine, impeccable service and unsurpassed presentation were not enough, our unique location will positively captivate you. Located on the cusp of New Jersey’s renowned Branch Brook Park, Nanina’s exquisite property is surrounded by thousands of flowering Cherry Blossom trees in season, creating a picture perfect setting you must see to believe. All of this truly establishes Nanina’s In The Park…. a Landmark Reborn.
Convenient to all major highways, and just three minutes from the Garden State Parkway, Nanina’s resides in the same location for more than 50 years.

A wedding venue is truly a representation of you and your future spouse's idea of how to create an unforgettable experience. We had checked out a few venues before visiting Nanina's and felt that each had come up just short of exactly it was we were looking for. People had mentioned that you will feel it inside when you know the place is right, you will see yourself there, in your dress, with your groom, surrounded by all the ones you love. They were right. We definitely knew which venues weren't for us but when we walked through these doors we knew which one would give us that unforgettable experience. It was the first of many major wedding decisions, and one we will NEVER regret. I am able to laugh now as I reflect on my many conversations with Liz, full of questions that she had probably heard thousands of times but answered as though it was the first. As members of the service industry, we find ourselves critiquing every thing from food to service to the look of the establishment. Guests have raved about the service, attentiveness and professionalism of the employees. From cocktail hour to the incredible viennese display (The Jersey Boardwalk Station it is literally OVER THE TOP) everyone expanded their waistlines and begged for more, Thanks Chef! Alyssa the bridal attendant certainly didn't miss a beat nor did Vicky. The true back bone of the entire night, Vicky, kept everything running smoothly and kept her promise that our wedding day would truly be a magical experience, we can't thank her enough. As Italians, we believe in family, feeling like your family and feeding your family. Nanina's makes you feel nothing less than that, so much so that we walked away with tray after tray of leftovers and full for days. Five very well earned stars and a Sixth if it would have let us! We keep talking about how we want to go back to this day...hopefully this place is still around in 25 years so we can celebrate our anniversary.

After touring multiple venues, we thought we found “The One.” Deposit in hand, we were headed to another venue when my mother suggested we check out Nanina's in the Park. I’m glad we took her advice! From the moment we stepped through the doors of Nanina’s into their beautiful foyer, we knew we found the right place. The team at Nanina’s treated us like family from day one. NO ONE DOES WEDDINGS LIKE NANINA'S! The cocktail hour was amazing, dinner was delicious and dessert was decadent. It has been over a month and our guests are still talking about the food, the grounds and the experience. Thank you.

To the entire staff of Nanina's in the Park, especially the love of our life Vicky and my bridal attendant Martha, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding on August 23,2014 the greatest night of our lives. From the time we started planning our wedding in June of 2013, Vicky has been like family to us. She dealt with countless phone calls from my father about the silliest things and she always was there whenever we needed her. Vicky, last night you totally went ABOVE and beyond. Our guests were all talking about you and how they were completely amazed by how professional you were. Vicky and Martha made sure that every single detail down to the last flower girl petal was where it was supposed to be. They both made sure Josh and I had every single bit of food from our incredible cocktail hour to try in the bridal suite along with our signature drink and sodas/water. They constantly made sure we were well fed and that our guests had everything they needed. Every single person raved about the cocktail hour and they didn't know how they were going to eat dinner but, everyone wound up eating their incredible meals. Vicky then took us out to the Dessert room where Josh and I got to sample and take photos with and of everything before our guests as well as having a table of everything set up for us. This morning we went over to Nanina's to get the remainder of our things from the wedding and Vicky & Tom greeted us with big hugs and neatly packed boxes of our belongings and trays upon trays of food from last night. If you want one of the BEST weddings or events that you will remember forever, Please have it at Nanina's In The Park. Not only is the place spectacular to look at inside and out but the staff that works there will tear at your heart strings. When I got in the car this morning to pull away from Nanina's I started to cry because I was going to miss Vicky's energy. Thank you SO much for putting everything into this wedding for us.We Love You!!

Fantastic venue. Easy to contact and work with. We did not have a planner and they were able to assist in our planning, and details. Aside from being beautiful, the staff was very kind. And the food, in a word, was amazing. Thank you for the wonderful day.

Nanina’s in the park provided my absolute dream wedding. When I booked with them I knew my day was going to be unforgettable, however nothing could have prepared me for the perfection of the actual day itself. From the moment my mom and I walked through the doors of Nanina’s we knew this was the place for us; and when we returned two days later with my husband to be and my father we signed on the dotted line right away. Throughout the entire wedding planning process Tom Casella was attentive, helpful, informative, and more than accommodating to any of our needs that came up along the way. He was flawless in providing an easy, stress-free planning experience right up until August 15th. On the day of the wedding, my bridesmaids and I had access to the flawless bridal suite where we spent the morning getting ready. Nanina’s bridal suite is far better than any hotel bridal suite in the area and offered the most gorgeous setting for getting ready. Luxury makeup counters, oversized mirrors, and breath taking garden views. In addition, Martha the bridal attendant was by my side the entire day. She would read my mind, knowing everything I’d need before I could even tell her. She and Cyrus, the Matire’d worked perfectly together making sure myself, my husband, and our families were comfortable and taken care of the entire night. This allowed all of us to enjoy the impeccable surroundings and grounds, mouthwatering food and drinks and the gorgeous ballroom where we were able to dance the night away. My wedding day was the most indescribable day of my life. It was perfect in every way imaginable and Nanina’s made it that way. If you are thinking of hosting your wedding at Nanina’s in the Park, think no more and sign the paperwork, it will be the best decision you could possibly make. It’s been a month since our wedding and we are still hearing from family and friends about how it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to!

My wedding was August 14, 2014. it was a beautiful sunny day and not too hot with a slight breeze. I could not have picked a better day nor a better place to say "i do" to the love of my life.
