Hilary and Laura were responsive, professional and helpful. If I wrote them an email, I would get a response in an hour or sooner. It was probably sooner but lets say an hour to be safe. The venue was flexible about with the vendors we wanted to use as well as the number of vendors . They were always forthcoming with all the options for the venue, like the bar limits, or when the vendors could start setting up, or the number of events that would also be taking place on the day of my event. All you had to do was ask and they would answer any question you had.

We had our Reception at Villa Ragusa in July. VR is a massive and beautiful banquet hall that fits up to 600 people and was our top choice when choosing Reception venues. VR is very reasonably priced with one of the best alcohol packages!!

We had the pleasure to work with Hilary throughout our planning process. We cannot express in words how amazing Hilary is. From day one, she was truly involved, answered every single one of our hundreds of questions (even if we re-asked the same questions), and made sure that our special day would turn out truly special. She was very easy to work with, always available, very responsive, and very accommodating when scheduling appointments to go see the venue. She helped us with everything from the small details to the big stuff. She put together a floor plan that best fit our needs/wants and even provided genuine advice from her years of organizing events. Laura another great coordinator was the one present on the day of our reception and she made sure everything ran by smoothly.

Other bonuses: VR has a kitchen that is perfect for food vendors to use, they build a dance floor to fit your size needs, have a wide selection for table cloth and chair sashes to choose from and to top it of there is also ample of free/safe parking in the area making it convenient for guests.

Overall, we're very happy with choosing Villa Ragusa as our Reception venue. We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone.

This was one of our best vendors! We needed flexibility and that is what they offered. Fist of all, they had anywhere from 1-3 rooms that they can open up or collapse depending on the size of our wedding. We needed two rooms and it was OK that another wedding was taking place in the last room. They room separator made it so that we could not hear what was happening on the other end. They gave us options of menus that were very informative and it was helpful that the tax and gratuity was already included in the price per person. They offer a "Combination Plate" option in which every person can get two portions of a main dish. For example, people can have chicken and steak or chicken and fish, etc. The venue was beautiful and they are willing to do so much to make people happy. I also loved their service - they were very professional and courteous towards everyone.

After searching reception sites high and low that would accommodate 250 people we came across Villa Ragusa. We met with Marisa and instantly hit it off. Their prices were very reasonable compared to other sites. We went with the priceless package and felt that it was the best value. It included things such as votives and candles, cake, appetizers, and chair covers. We also liked that they had a flat fee for their bar packages instead of a per drink price as all of the hotels do. The site was definitely more modern than some of the others we visited and the staff was very helpful.

We did run into one issue at our tasting with the food that was served. They were very attentive and quickly re-schedule a new tasting. They assured us that all the concerns would be corrected, and they were. We received many compliments on the food. Marisa made sure the night flowed smoothly and that everyone had a great time. We recommend Villa Ragusa to anyone looking for a reception facility.

I had my wedding at Villa Ragusa on June 14, 2008, coordinated by Alison Gardinier. The planning up to the event was great. Alison responded to all my emails quickly and answered all my questions. The reason I give Alison and VR a 1 star is because of the service they provided me the DAY of our wedding. After all the "Wedding Day" is the main event right? After the reception was all set up and my guest were enjoying the cocktail hour Alison had left the event and had gone home because apparently she had become ill. She did not inform my own personally hired coordinators that she would be leaving and that Marissa (the 2nd Villa Ragusa coordinator) would be taking over. Marissa ended up working two events at one time, our wedding and the other wedding that was happening in the other ballroom. Again we were not informed of this. (Note: The week before when we were finalizing our menu we let Alison know that we would be paying the $500 fee to extend our reception by one hour. We would then be scheduled to end at 11:30 pm.) At about 10:30 p.m. the caterer from the Del Monte Restaurant (DID I MENTION CATERER not coordinator) comes up to me and informs me that me and my guest need to be out of there because our contract time ended. She informed me that the lights must be turned on and that our DJ needs to turn off the music. This (obviously) was incorrect After arguing back and forth with her for 30 minutes (she kept insisting that I was incorrect and that she was right)...We tried to call Marissa and Alison on their cell phones but NOBODY was picking up! We finally go downstairs to the office where we look over the contract and in big letters it reads "1 HOUR OVER TIME PAID $500". We continued the party but at this point I was livid! Even though the party continued, they compensated our entire bar tab, it doesn't even make up for the frustration and angry Del Monte and Villa Ragusa put me through ON MY WEDDING DAY! THIS is why I was upset. 1. Alison (whom I've worked with from day one) should have told my coordinators that she was leaving. 2. The VR Coordinators did not stay until the end of our event. As customers we PAID for their service and they should not have left until our event was over. 3. During the dilemma Marissa and Alison were nowhere to be reached in person or by phone. 4. Villa Ragusa and the Caterer had very bad communication. They should have discussed everything clearly before letting Del Monte Restaurant take over 5. I had originally told my florist to come back at 11:30pm to pick up all rented items BUT early that day VR told them to come at 10:30pm (which obviously shows that VR did not have the correct ending time at all)... My poor florist had to wait 1 hour at the venue until the correct ending time of 11:30pm. 6. MOST importantly!!! The caterer should NOT have come up to me (the BRIDE) and tell us to turn the lights on. That is why I had hired my own personal coordinators. She should have approached them, the groom, any of the bridesmaids... NOT THE BRIDE! In the end Alison felt bad and did compensate our bar tab BUT as I mentioned before that does not make up for the anger, frustration and irritation they put me through DURING our event... After all, the Wedding Day is the most important aspect and the service I received ON THE DAY was horrible!

I loved working with Villa Ragusa. They worked with our budget, gave us lots of options, and in the end we ended up with exactly what we wanted/needed all for a price that none of our guests would believe. We got tons of compliments on the food, the bar, everything! The men especially have been coming to me, raving about the size of the prime rib. :-) I worked with Alison Gardanier throughout the whole process. She was very helpful, accommodating, and quick to answer any of our questions. The day of the wedding she was attentive to our every need and made sure that we were comfortable throughout the night. I have to say, though, that the main reason we chose Villa Ragusa over other reception venues was the combination of size and price. We were estimating around 300 guests for our wedding, so our reception options were a bit limited. Most hotels maxed out around 200 and those that didn't were pretty pricey. In the end, we chose a hotel that maxed out at 280 and just tried to be happy. Luckily, a bout of bad service from that hotel prompted us to cancel our reservation and begin the search anew. Good thing we checked out Villa because we were able to accommodate more people, have much better food, a bigger dance floor, more space and a full bar for much less than we would have spent at the hotel.

Just celebrate our wedding banquet at Villa Ragusa.
What a memorable time it was. The place was well-lit (pictures online don't represent that well enough). Food was amazing! - They provided catering with the package we selected instead of outside catering. Guests of family and friends gave high praise to the decor.

We are very thankful and fortunate to have selected not just Villa the place, but the coordinator. Hilary was our main point of contact and an amazing coordinator. She definitely provided ease and relief among the stress. Clearly our easiest vendor that we worked with.
