My husband and I couldn't have asked for more from our experience. We checked put several venues and we knew right away that we wanted our wedding at Villa Borghese. Not only is the outdoor ceremony area newly updated and gorgeous the inside is equally beautiful. Joe and his staff went above and beyond to give us everything we wanted. It started raining a half hour before our outdoor ceremony was about to start so the staff worked quickly to set up the ballroom to move the ceremony indoors. Just as we were about to start the clouds parted and the sun came out and the staff readjusted, cleaning off chairs for 160 people so that we could be outside. Our family and friends can't stop raving about how good the food was and how beautiful the facility is. I can't recommend Villa Borghese enough.

My husband and I were the winners of the ultimate bridal expo at the poughkeepsie civic center in February 2013. We won a $20,000 wedding! Part of that prize was having 100 people free at our reception at the villa borghese. From the beginning of planing our wedding Joe and Paul Porco were great! They were very helpful with everything we needed. Any questions I had they answered them right away. The reception was set up exactly as I wanted it. All the staff were wonderful to us the minute we got there. Taking care of anything we needed or wanted and with a very positive attitude! The only things that went wrong at my reception was the guest book was put away before anyone had a chance to sign it and I worked very hard on that guest book to only have a few people sign it I was not happy about. Also I had an app for my guests that they could take pictures on so I could get all those pictures. There were cards that had all the app information on them which I paid $30 for that were supposed to be put at everyone's plate setting. I very clearly put it in the set up directions and they were un-opened when I received everything back and not put on the tables. Over all the reception was perfect and my guests enjoyed every minute of it! Thank you Paul and joe for giving us the day we have only dreamed of!

We just had our wedding there on Valentines day. The venue was very professional. A few days before the wedding we were getting stressed due to weather and other issues. Erica and Joe were amazing. When we finally got to the big day our maitre'd Eric was spot on with everything. The food was excellent and the staff was extremely helpful. Overall they did a great job and we would recommend them to anyone who is getting married. They even allowed me to have a appetizer off the menu which was grilled cheese with tomato bisque. We cannot thank Joe and Paul enough.

The only thing I did not like was that you had to go through the venue to decorate for the ceremony. I ended up not having any decorations for the ceremony due to that and the price. Other than that I was extremely satisfied and received a lot of compliments on how beautiful the venue was!

The Villa Borghese treated us like family! What an incredible experience! Our wedding was surreal. We had the entire venue and 400+ people that were catered to perfectly. The food was incredible. Our guests were extremely happy with their service and the level of professionalism. They were wonderful during the entire process and on the day of our wedding. We could have never asked for better! Every time we speak to anyone who attended our wedding they literally stop us to tell us that it was an experience rather then just a normal wedding and we truly owe that to the Villa Borghese! I would strongly recommend this venue for the wedding of a lifetime! <3

My husband and I were married at the Villa Borghese on August 31, 2013. When we visited the Villa last year, I knew instantly this would be our venue. The place is breath-taking and affordable. The service is excellent and the staff is friendly and welcoming. Our wedding was managed beautifully and I felt we made the right choice. The food is taste great (go to the food tasting). Sarah S. our wedding planner was excellent. She shared her opinions and guided us through the process. I highly recommend to a bride who wants the best to choose this venue. A+

They were on point and knew exactly what to do and what direction to point us in when it came to pretty much everything. All of our guests raved about what a great place.

Villa Borghese did an amazing job with our wedding. Erica was my coordinator and is great at communicating and always gave quick responses for any question I had. On the day of, my husband and I were greeted by Paul as soon as we arrived. We were ushered up to our Bridal room where we were served drinks and food from our cocktail hour. I forgot the name of our Maitre D(I feel bad about that but it's been two weeks), but she was wonderful! She made sure we were all taken care of. JoAnn was our head waitress. She was absolutely wonderful! I really suggest you request her! She took care of our sweetheart table the whole time and followed us around with the photographers and held my lip gloss, got me water, helped with anything we needed. She really helped make that day so much less crazy than it could have been. Her mom took care of the ladies room and she was so helpful too, between making sure we had bobby pins to helping fix my crinoline, she was so helpful and so sweet! I know people are leery of banquet halls b/c food is often not the best and some don't like the idea of having multiple weddings going on, but this was NOT the case. Our food was so delicious and the other wedding didn't interfere with us at all. I forgot they were even there. I highly recommend Villa Borghese!

Absolutely perfect :)
The only complaint I really had was my wedding planner was not there for our rehearsal..and at the end of the wedding evening, they immediately started packing up our items (we had alot bc we made our centerpieces) and basically shoved us out the door with everything. That made me a little upset bc I had several broken vases bc they were not properly re-packaged..
other than that the food and the place was amazing!

VB is a wonderful wedding venue in all aspects.GREAT value-the lowest price we found out of many venues close to NYC, AND much nicer than almost all other venues we visited.So much more is included VB’s package than other venues we visited, and without any hidden fees.For example, VB does not charge a service fee, cake cutting fee, etc.A wedding assistant is included in the package.She is extremely well-informed and helped us make all the decisions we needed to make.During the planning phase, we visited several times to decide on food, decoration, etc, and VB was very flexible and accommodated our schedules every time.
It is beautifully decorated and recently renovated with great places for photos. You can have your ceremony at VB for no additional cost.
Everything fell into place perfectly on our wedding day.The VB staff is very organized, attentive, friendly, and helpful. Food was delicious.We really liked the appetizers, and we would recommend the rib-eye steak, salmon, and swordfish for entrées.The included wedding cake was delicious.The Champaign and signature drinks were also very good.They let us use any part of the venue that wasn’t being used to take photos.
The only complaint is that VB requires you to use specific florists for the ceremony and the reception. VB’s packages come with reception centerpieces provided by a great florist, however you if you choose not to use the pkg centerpieces you can use any other florist.This is not the case for the ceremony, for which you could only use 1 specific florist, a different florist, who we found very difficult to work with, had unreasonable prices, would not communicate very basic facts about her pkgs, and refused to show photos of flowers we were paying exorbitant prices for.

5 stars does not do justice to how amazing this venue is. We only wish we could have provided an additional five stars (at least) in every category. We might seem to be overly generous in our ratings but believe us, we visited many, many, many venues and Villa Borghese was the most pleasing, the best value, and the most professional. The hall is beautiful, the staff is friendly, accommodating, and attentive, the value is unbeatable, but most notable to us was the food. The food is amazing. We went to our tasting expecting the usual fare to be found at catering halls. This was not the case, the food at Villa Borghese is of the level one would find in a five star restaurant!! Our only complaint about it was that we became full and could not eat more, that is not a joke...it was that good. All of our guests have gone on about how great the venue was and what a great time they had. We can easily say, if you are getting married, or need a catering hall, make sure you use Villa Borghese in Wappingers Falls. It is hands down the benchmark to be beat.

The Villa Borghese made my wedding everything I ever dreamed it could be. I first contacted them because I was told they are willing to work with a bride on a budget and they lived up to that. The rooms were recently redone and came out beautiful. The cocktail hour room made my decision complete. Joe and his team were wonderful to work with. Any questions, thoughts, or concerns he would respond asap and was very patient. He was able to give me all the info. I needed and was very flexible with anything I needed or wanted. He gave great input and was beyond helpful during the planning process. The food is absolutely delicious, the decor is beautiful, the people are wonderful...I cannot say enough good things about our experience there. Thank you Villa Borghese and Joe for making our wedding so wonderful.

Beautiful photo opportunities, outside setting is perfect for an outdoor ceremony. the indoors is gorgeous. the food is amazing...best of all the staff is soooo friendly and personable. I really had the best wedding in the world and it was because I picked vendors that worked well together with a huge help from Villa.

When my husband and I first started planning our wedding, we checked out many different venues in the area and none of them compare to Villa Borghese! We fell in love with the place the second we saw it! Both the outside and inside of this venue are gorgeous, and being that we had a fall wedding, the outside of the venue was very important. It poured on our wedding day, and we did not have to worry about a thing, Villa switched our ceremony location from outside to inside and we had the ceremony in the room our reception was held. The staff members who were working our wedding as well as the maître d' were all very attentive and made me feel very comfortable. One thing I will say, if you are a bride who wants to be the only one getting married at the venue the day of your wedding, this is not the place for you. They usually have 2 other weddings going on during the same day. Also, because of the fact there were multiple weddings going on, the main entrance area and all the other locations of the venue besides our room were very loud, and we had 2 drunken wedding crashers come into our reception room that I (the bride) had to tell to leave. This was one of the only issues we had that night, but if this would ruin your day, take it into consideration. Overall the place is beautiful and we are so happy that we picked this venue for our wedding!

After visiting a few other venues we knew the Villa was what we wanted. The atmosphere with all the great photo ops right on site was just what we were looking for not over the top gaudy which is not our style. Just classy. The food, service, attention to detail from begining to end was top notch. They know what their doing, leave it in their hands and you have a lot less to worry about.

Aboslutely Amazing !!!! The Villa Borghese did such a wonderful job for my special day Oct 6, 2012. I couldnt have asked for anything better! Joe and Paul Porco make a great team and made my wedding planning a breeze. They gave excellent recomendations and adviced on how to plan, and make my visions into a reality. We had our coctail hour upstairs and it was a beautiful day so we got to use the terrace outside so there was plenty of room. The reception followed into the Grand Ballroom and the new lighting matched my color scheme, it was awesome! Our Maître d' was Miguel and he was always right there, he always made sure we had a drink in our hand and that we were having fun! The food was out of this world, and the guests are still raving about it, the salmon seemed to be the favorite but i l loved the Filet mignon and the twice baked potatoes... i even aked for another one!! They had all the food out in a timely fashion so noone was rushed, and yet we had plenty of time to dance. We had 170 people at our wedding and i have yet to hear one complaint.The Viannese Hour definitly WOWed our guests, the sparklers, ice sculptures, and desserts were to die for.We had a wild group of people and the dance floor was always packed and the staff was always professional, and did a great job handling our guests.I even had a popcorn and pretzel machine delivered and the staff and the villa set it up and handed the goodies out. There was another wedding going on at the same time and that posed no problems for me, i still got to take all my pictures and never saw the other bride at all. I can not express how HAPPY i am with how my wedding turned out and I even left telling them i wanted to do it all over again!!!

My husband and I had been searching for a Wedding venue for a few months. After attending a friends 50th Birthday party at The Villa Borghese and having a blast we decided to go in for a consultation. We fell in love with the place the second we saw it! Both the outside and inside of this venue are beautiful especially after the renovation they have just done. We met with Erica who is the most sweetest person ever. After sitting down to discuss the packages we knew this would be the place were we would get married. We went ahead and placed a hold on our date which was Friday, August 31, 2012. We went home and disscussed and within a few hours called back to confirm our date. We wanted to have an outdoor wedding and this place had it all. The staff members who were working our wedding as well as the maître d' were all very nice and attentive. Erica was absolutely amazing she was extremely helpful from the minute I met her to the day of my wedding. We are so happy that we picked this venue for our wedding! Thank you so much for making our day so special and memorable! Mr. & Mrs. DeJesus!!

The new renovations that were done are great and the place is a great all in one deal and one thing I really loved about this place, that I did not find other places, is that from the moment of inquiry you know how much you are going to pay including tax and everything. The staff is so nice and helpful and I highly recommend this place!

They were always there to help and answer questions while planning my wedding. You get a lot of choices and there is a lot of stuff included with the packages they offer. Everyone at my wedding kept saying I cant believe how much food is here. I Reccommend the Villa Borghese to any Bride and Groom out there.

My daughter's wedding was held at the Villa Borghese on June 12, 2010. Everyone at the Villa was wonderful. They made sure that no stone was left unturned and that the reception was beautiful. From the decorations on the tables to the food, there is nothing that can be complained about. Being Italian the taste of food is very important and I can honestly say that NO ONE complained about the food as it was delicious. The only complaint was with the amount as it seemed that it was never ending. Our maitre d made sure that the bride and groom were well taken care of and that they never had to ask for a thing. My guests were very impressed with the Villa. Several people have said that they would even consider it for any events that they were having. I will definitely book the Villa Borghese for my next event. Thank you Karen, Gino and Paul, you guys were wonderful

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Villa Borghese. For the price (which was SO reasonable!) I would have been happy with food and service that was nothing special. But they were INCREDIBLE. The food was delicious, all of it; my guests are still talking about the selection and quality during our cocktail hour. And even though gratuity is included in the per person price, which you would think means no motivation to go above and beyond, I felt absolutely like royalty. When we were in the room getting our pictures taken before the reception, a member of the staff even put together a sampler plate from the cocktail foods and brought it to us so we would not be hungry. There was always someone asking if we needed something or refilling our drinks, but somehow it was never seemed that they were pestering. 160 guests were served entrees almost simultaneously and my swordfish was delicious. Our ceremony was outside at the gazebo and the pictures are breathtaking. We even fit parents, wedding party & huppah into that gazebo! The ladies room (the most important thing according to my grandmother) is gorgeous, and it's not every day you can say that about a bathroom! The best part of all was how much was included in the price because I live in Florida and wanted as little hassle as possible. In fact, no one who attended the wedding lives within 3 hours of the site. My family is in MA and my husband's is on Long Island. For the price, I said everyone can drive. And it was totally worth it, I would not have changed a thing (even with all the crap I got for having a wedding in a random spot). Karen was very helpful. Everyone was incredibly nice. The site is gorgeous, the food is delicious, everything but the kitchen sink is included and the service is impeccable. I had a picture in my head of what the wedding would be like, and they made it ten times better than I had even dreamed.

The Villa Borghese made the wedding of my dreams happen. We were on a tight budget and did not have many plans made for the wedding yet when we approached the Villa Borghese. They helped us plan our wedding on our budget and time frame with excellent service and helpful suggestions. Some other venues have the tendency to try to persuade the couple to try to upgrade their package or add unnecessary items, not the Villa Borghese. I was so impressed with the service, the decorations, the food, the beautiful outside and the budget. I have recommended the Villa Borghese to all my friends who are looking to get married and if I had to do it all over again, I would choose the Villa Borghese, without hesitiation.

I can't tell you enough how many weddings I have been too since ours and not becuase it was our but because of where it was our wedding was by far the best and some paid twice as much as we did for much less. The food was amazing, the service was impeccable and the overall appearance of the venue made my guest feel like they were royalty for the day. The price is comparable to other venues but by far better in quality and service. I wouldn't look any further for your next event, especially a wedding. The flowers that were provided for center peices was amazing, if we didn't live so far away I would have had Liz do my flowers for everything.

I can't tell you enough how many weddings I have been too since ours and not becuase it was our but because of where it was our wedding was by far the best and some paid twice as much as we did for much less. The food was amazing, the service was impeccable and the overall appearance of the venue made my guest feel like they were royalty for the day. The price is comparable to other venues but by far better in quality and service. I wouldn't look any further for your next event, especially a wedding. The flowers that were provided for center peices was amazing, if we didn't live so far away I would have had Liz do my flowers for everything. You really can't go wrong with this venue, have your next event here and see for yourself. Read less

The Villa was the second venue I had interviewed.The villa is a beautifully decorated. Karen, Sarah and Stanley were great! I was treated like a Queen! The wedding consultants were great and very responsive. The food was great! The day of my wedding, they worked with my wedding coordinator and I to set up the tables and the Candy station the way I dreamed! They hold up to three weddings at one time. Something that I did not think about at the time. There were other weddings, but the service that I got over shadowed my concerns! I would definitely have a function here again! I will see them in October, my niece is getting married here!

When I met with Erica in the beginning of 2013 I knew this was the perfect place for my special day. I asked her before booking if they could accommodate my gluten allergy and she ensured me they could. A few days later I came back with my fiance and booked the place, but checking again that they could accommodate my gluten allergy and was told once again that it would not be a problem. Erica went on maternity leave and Joe assisted me with any questions or concerns that I had while she was unavailable. Anytime that I had a question or concern I would e mail Erica and her response was very timely and was always above and beyond. Anytime that food was mentioned I always reminded her that I had the gluten allergy and she always responded that they would be able to accommodate me. I kept bringing it up because I get extremely cranky when I don't eat for long periods of time and I knew the whole morning before the ceremony and reception was going to be too crazy to be able to eat a real meal. I went to the food tasting about two months before my wedding which was not as great as I thought since they were not very accommodating to my gluten allergy that night. Also, I told them that I was going to be doing the king package and the food tasting was pasted of a princess package wedding. I reminded Erica that night that I was gluten free and wanted to make sure that the food tasting night was no indentation on how my wedding night was going to be. The wedding night: The chef might of known what gluten free was but the wait staff did not seem too knowledgeable on it. When the appetizers were brought into the bridal suite I asked the person what I could eat and she was not sure and did not seen to fully understand what it was. My salad had crouton in it which I was not able to eat. But after telling them my issue they seemed to have gotten their act together and the matre d made sure there were no more issues from that point on.

Would Recommend to everyone!!

They were GREAT! The value for the dollar was amazing all of our guests were impressed with the options and food and atmosphere. We had initally made a request for NO pigs in a blanket and we saw that they were in fact there and when we reminded them that they weren't supposed to be being served they disappeared without so much as a peep. Our cake was all our own and the chef was fantastic to work with.

We got married at Villa Borghese 5/10/14 and it was beautiful!! We were supposed to have the ceremony outdoors, but it was getting very cloudy and dark just before we were supposed to start, so we changed it to inside, and they happily and quickly moved everything inside. The food was great and everything was beautiful. We had our own centerpieces and the staff set everything up perfectly, and beyond what I could have envisioned.

What a perfect decision. Our guests had an awesome time and were completely blown away by the venue, food and drinks. We really enjoyed the first moment that we walked in the door and saw the place (complete with champagne), the tasting, and the finalizing of details. When we arrived after the ceremony, it was incredible to have our maitre d' there with champagne ready to go for us and the bridal suite prepped and secured for our personal items. What an amazing touch to make us feel like royalty (and I never planned to feel like it had to be that way). They were extremely attentive to our every need and then some. Food and dessert are incredible, and open bar is part of the package! Overall it is amazing. The only thing you may want to consider is opting out of the centerpieces with your package.

We CAN NOT Say enough THANK YOUS!!!!
Congratulations to Jennifer and Rob on winning the grand prize at Sunday’s 9/23/12 bridal show which includes a wedding package give away compliments of Villa Borghese.

The Borghese staff Paul and Joe give away something that was just unbelievable! Our guests still talk about the food at the cocktail hour to this day!! They loved that we had our cocktail hour upstairs with the view even though it was cold and flurrying out. There was one waiter there that was just amazing; he even got a fan for me because he saw how hot I was from my dress and dancing too much! He took great care of us & even reminded us to eat! The room we where in was just perfect for us and the up lighting is just a fantastic touch!!

P.S sorry for the late review!! it's 7/18/13 and we got married on 3/16/13

My husband and I got married at the Villa this Friday and it was really wonderful. We used the Crystal Room, and with its new renovations & lighting, it looked beautiful. The food was excellent and the servers were really attentive. I can honestly say it went off without a hitch. They helped organize everything when I arrived and really helped it from being any more nervewracking then it already was!! I worked with Erica mostly and she was really responsive and helpful all the way along. Thank you so much to everybody at the Villa Borghese, all my guests commented on how beautiful everything was!

We got so many compliments from our friends and family that our wedding was one of the most beautiful that they have ever attended. Even friends who had previously been there were extremely impressed with the renovations, such as the new tile floor and uplighting in the garden room, as well as the new cocktail room. The food was excellent and the staff were extremely nice and accommodating. Addy and Joanne were especially great and help calm me down and assure me both before the ceremony when we were running a little late (of course haha), and when I couldn't remember how my dress bussled--they even pulled out google to try to look it up! Paul and Joe made sure the ceremony ran smoothly. Sarah was our wedding planner, and although there were sometimes I would have liked a little more detail in questions to her, she always responded. The ceremony and reception really were perfect the day off and I will definitely recommend their services!

They were extremely helpful. I did have one problem in which they threw away my swarovski cake bands and were extremely rude stating that they were cake ribbon. There is a big difference between swarovski crystals and ribbon. Other than that I have nothing but good things to say and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a beautiful place to get married!!!

Our wedding was beautiful but there where somethings that were not handled the way I would have liked. Some things that were agreed upon early on were not respected on their end when it came time for the wedding so if you do go with the Villa get every little thing written down. One thing that bothered us is that my husbands favorite drink is captin and coke and we were told they carry captin, but come the day of the wedding there wasnt any.

The Villa Borghese is a beautiful place for a reception. As far as ceremony you're options are pretty limited. If you want to get married you have to walk across the parking lot to get their designated wedding location. I chose to get married elsewhere and have the reception there, they are very hands on but pricey.
