This was an amazing venue. Throughout my planning process everyone kept asking if I was stressed and I wasn't at all. The Hilton/ Nicotra's Ballroom assigns you an event planner that helps you throughout the entire process. Shainah was my coordinator and she was amazing. She helped me with everything from picking my vendors, to organizing the breakfast for the following morning. Every time I needed help she was only an email or phone call away. For my wedding day I had a bridal attendant Brianna who took care of my every need the entire day and even sewed my dress when the bustle hook broke. Vito was our maitre d' he was so organized and made my night go amazing without a hiccup. The Nictora's have an amazing staff and beautiful venue. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to any bride that does not want to stress.

Our wedding at Nicotra's was AMAZING!!! Our wedding planner was Sue and she was such a pleasure to work with. She answered all of my questions in a timely fashion ( and there were MANY questions!!) and was always very accommodating with all of the special touches we wanted to have at our wedding!! We had our ceremony outside in the gorgeous gazebo. Our cocktail hour was in the beautiful Trevi Garden. The food was beyond delicious! My bridal attendant Brianna was amazing as well. she did everything from holding my train down the aisle to wrapping up our left overs and putting them in our room for later. All of the staff was super friendly and made sure that we had everything we needed. Our friends and family are still talking abut how beautiful our wedding was!! We were provided with a complimentary suite the night of our wedding and came back to find our room lit with candles and scattered with rose petals! We even received PJ's and personalized pillowcases from Mr. & Mrs. Nicotra as a wedding gift! My husband & I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day!

My husband and I got married at Nicotra's Ballroom on Labor Day weekend. Everything from the venue itself to the service was wonderful. The staff was so professional and accommodating to our every need. The outdoor gazebo was perfect for an outdoor evening ceremony and was absolutely breathtaking (with minimal flowers needed). There is a bridal swing, fountain, and Chinese garden, beautiful for pictures as well. My bridal attendant was always by my side and had anything you could possibly need on your wedding day in her pocket! We stayed in the bridal suite, which was spacious and very comfortable, and may I add, a 3 chair vanity that the hair and makeup artists really appreciated. We had a Russian style wedding where "Russian Elite Caterering" catered the whole event; this was a huge plus when choosing a venue for us. Overall, Nicotra's Ballroom and the Hilton Garden Inn are a perfect place to celebrate your wedding day. The additional option for friends and family to stay overnight in the hotel made it that more special to spend with everyone!

Love love love. That is all I can say. From the moment we stepped into Nicotra's my husband and I knew this is wehre we were getting married. We met with Andrea who is the sweetest person that you will ever meet. She was always a phone call or email away during our 15 months of planning. She never hesitated when I sent her an email with a laundry list of questions. At our tasting we met the Chef and he suggested a different way he wcould prepare one of the entrees so it was to our taste. When we arrived at Nicotra's we were met by our bridal attendant Bri, LOVED her! I have heard of horror stories of how bride's didn't like their attendant at other locations but Bri was on top of everything. Everything the night of our wedding was fantastic - the food was exceptional, the service was top notch, and not a thing was out of place. My guests were truly blown away. I couldn't be happier. We received a stay in the bridal suite that night and by the time we went up to our room all our packages and extras were neatly packed up and put in the room for us. There were even containers of food for us to pick on. Mr. Nicotra and his wife even stopped by during the reception to check on us, they are wonderful. I hope to be invited to a wedding a Nicotra's!!!

I had my wedding at Nicotra's Ballroom on February 19th and I can't say enough good things about this venue. I worked with Jennifer, who answered all my questions and helped greatly with our wedding planning. With 75 guests, we decided to have the cocktail hour in a small portion of the ballroom and the reception in the Tea House. If anyone else is considering this set up, I would highly recommend it. Both rooms were beautiful and the Tea House looked amazing, with four tables set up on each side of the room. I was hesitant at first because i'd usually see the Tea House set up for a cocktail hour but the room is so big, we could have fit many more guests comfortably.

The main reason why we chose Nicotra's Ballroom was their reputation. One time while visiting the venue, Mr. Nicotra met with us and showed us every banquet room in the venue. He knew we were having a small wedding but took the time out to answer our questions and give us his feedback. Having a winter wedding I was also concerned about choosing a location that would be dependable in case of a storm, and Mr. Nicotra put all our worries at ease, explaining that during the event of bad weather, he can have his staff stay at the hotel overnight so everything would be up and running for our wedding. After booking the venue, I was so relaxed and had one less thing to worry about.

During the night of our wedding, both the cocktail hour food and dinner was amazing. Friends and family continue to say great things about the food and the venue. The Tea House looked beautiful, and the weather was surprisingly so nice that we were able to take outdoor pictures on the property and at the gazebo. One of my husbands sisters young friends thought the cocktail hour was the dinner and was amazed by all the food she saw throughout the night lol.

I didn't think we'd be able to afford a wedding at Nicotra's Ballroom and i'm glad we made the visit to the venue- this was one of the best choices we ever made. I highly recommend this vendor and can't thank them enough for making our wedding so perfect.

Nicotra's was our first and last stop when choosing wedding halls !! We were not disappointed the least by making such a decision. Patricia Banks was amazing and made sure our day went as smooth as possible. Each room was more beautiful than the last. Having an outdoor gazebo on premise was the winning ticket for us for having our ceremony there. The food was awesome and staff was extremely helpful throughout our stay there.

I've been planning my wedding with our event cooridnator Andrea Vicotrio for 22 months and can't say enough about her great communication and advice. Her phone calls and emails were answered promptly and she was great explaining all of our details. Also, my bridal attendant Breanne was AMAZING!!!!!!!! I don't know what I would have done that day without her!!! We got married in the outside gazebo and had our reception in the bigger room (with the glass windows) and everything was beyond perfect. The Hilton staff was like a well oiled machine and had my day run so smooth it was unbelievable. The cocktail hour was amazing...food and service was great...and the venetain hour was more than we expected. They also threw in some extras (gave us the Saturday menu for our Sunday wedding and threw in a few extra stations during cocktail hour) If you are looking for a beautiful venue, where you don't have to worry about a thing, book Nicotras!!!!

My husband and I were the first to have a brunch engagement party in the outdoor room at Nicotra's. I went in and asked for what i wanted and although they had never done it before, they were accommodating and gave me what I wanted. It was a Sunday brunch, the room was bright and lovely. It has since been redecorated and upgraded and is even nicer. At the time the service wasn't great, likely because it was a new experience for the servers. Many guests complained about not getting their coffee with their cake, and the bar tender waited until exactly 12:00pm to serve drinks even though it was 11:55am. Mr. Nicotra himself came in to see how everything was, and I truly feel they did a quality job considering. I would highly recommend their services - they were expensive but the atmosphere and food were delicious.

I cannot say enough good things about Nicotra's Ballroom at the Hilton Garden Inn! The food was amazing, our ballroom was gorgeous, the staff was sooo attentive. They ensured our day went as smoothly as possible. Our event coordinator, Andrea, was a pleasure to work with. It's the little things they did that made our day extra special: the owners of the hotel and ballroom, Mr. & Mrs. Nicotra, showed up during our reception to make sure we and our parents were happy with everything. My bridal attendant, Jen, was always a step ahead of me... she always had a drink waiting for me, she brought my flip flops over after our first dance, and even packed up food from the cocktail our and brought it up to our room. As my one year anniversary approaches this week, I can tell you The Nicotra's sent me a one year anniversary gift! We are so appreciative of everything they did for us and would love to have future events at Nicotra's.

My husband and I joked that if we were rich, we’d keep throwing money at this venue because we can’t imagine how we’d ever thank them for such an amazing event. Our contact at the venue (Carroll Tavella) walked us through the entire planning process and her input was invaluable.

I have to comment on the service at Nicotra’s. We could tell the employees love their workplace and their employers. Every time we walked in to the Hilton, whether we were dropping off payment or coming for a tasting, we were greeted with warm and friendly welcomes. We’d be sitting in the lobby with 5 or 6 employees passing as well as the owners, and every one of them would stop and offer us drinks. That sort of culture of hospitality wouldn’t exist in a working environment where employees weren’t happy. You can tell everyone loves their jobs and takes pride in their work. The service on our wedding day was excellent as well. My husband and I were pampered to the point where our amazing bridal attendant (Jen) wouldn’t even let me carry my own bouquet. The waiters were all polite and helpful. We couldn’t have asked for more. Even upon leaving the hotel on Monday for our honeymoon, the gentleman at the counter told me to “take whatever I wanted” as I ran in their convenience store for a quick stock of benadryl.

The reception was worth every penny. There are a few venues on the island that are less expensive, but Nicotra’s just gave us so much for the money. We were blown away at our tasting and the actual reception food was no exception. Our cocktail hour was a meal in itself with action stations, stationary stations, and tons of passed hors d’oeuvres. I had requested mini grilled cheeses be added to the menu and to my surprise, three varieties of the mini sandwiches were provided at no extra cost to us. Everyone raved about the food, which was impressive considering we had quite a few amateur food critics. We had booked with Nicotra’s because it was the only venue we had never heard a negative comment about, and there was good reason for that reputation. The parents were receiving calls for the entire honeymoon about how amazing the food was and how large the selection was! From what we ate at the cocktail hour, and of the pasta course and the tasting of each entrée (they brought us all four!), the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! By far, the best “wedding food” I had ever encountered and I’m not only saying that because it was my own wedding.

I really could go on forever about how every little detail about this venue was perfect, from setting up our event to our beautiful suite for our wedding night. I can’t accurately put into words how grateful we were. I couldn’t recommend Nicotra’s Ballroom more highly.

Our wedding at Nicotra’s ballroom was everything and more then we could have imagined. Sue was our events coordinator and she went above and beyond our expectations. She was always just a phone call away whenever I needed something no matter how ridiculous it was. The food was excellent and even now a month later our guests are still raving about it. For any one that is getting married here I highly recommend getting Jen as your bridal attendant and Jeff as your Maître D. Jen was there for me the entire night helping me with anything I needed. They also sent food up to our room after the wedding in case we didn’t get to eat. Nicotra’s was the first place we looked for our dream wedding and we knew this was where we were going to get married. Everything was perfect.

OMG, love this place for more than one reason.
The obvious, my wedding was beautiful. The staff was amazing Pre, during, post wedding. This place is like a resort, you need to not go anywhere else, not even for pictures, its so beautiful.
Nicotra's is the wing of the Hilton Garden Inn. New bridal suites were beautiful. and they have everything you need on site, from Rehearsal dinner at Lorenzo's to couples massages (to take stress away) at Grottos Spa.
