There are not enough words to express how magical the Villa Russo and their staff made our wedding day. I had the pleasure of working with Victoria and Jennifer and they were both absolutely wonderful. Everything the day of the wedding was perfect, Kim was by our side from the moment we walked in. The staff was polite, courteous, and attentive. There is nothing I would of changed. The decor was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the cake was so good!! Everything you need is literally under one roof!! People are still talking about the wedding and the venue, and my husband and I are so happy with the way the wedding turned out. It is affordable venue with top class service!!!

We used Villa Russo for our wedding yesterday. From the time that we started planning our wedding a year ago (May of 2013), Villa Russo made the experience easy. Our Banquet manager Betsy was absolutely unbelievable. She responded to every single email, phone call, "emergency", or whatever we needed. Her attention to detail was second to no one. She was incredible. We cannot stress enough how important she was to this special day (even coming in the day of the wedding to hug me and my fiance and wish us the best). The hall itself was incredible. Every single detail that we talked about with the staff was taken care of. From the napkins to the smallest detail, everything was accommodated. The hall looked amazing and everyone of our guests complimented how beautiful the place was. The food was NOT "catering hall" food. The food tasted amazing. We worked with Kim as our maitre d. Kim never left our side. She was with us for everything. Absolutely nothing went wrong and if it did, we would have never noticed because Kim and the entire Villa Russo staff was on point. They did everything to make our day very memorable. Keep Villa Russo on your list of places to have your reception. We saw so many different halls and our choice in having our wedding reception at Villa Russo was one that we were completely happy with. When you go, ask to speak with Betsy or Jen. They were both incredible in every sense.

Thank you Villa Russo for making our day incredible.

I will say.... this place is above and superb. From the moment I walked in to the door, the staff made this wedding a pleasant experience for me. Victoria C. was my coordinator. She made sure she went out her way to make this the best day any woman can ever have!!! My husband and I truly loved her. She was supportive, professional and truly an amazing person. The same for Betsy H. who filled in when Victoria when she was not there. Betsy’s level of professionalism is beyond anyone I have ever met. These girls were wonderful in every way. This was just planning and preparing for the wedding day.

I shopped around before this place and they were truly the most reasonable place! I had a package deal of $10000.00 for 100 guest and all vendors were included. (DJ, Florist, Videographer, Photographer, Limousine, Etc.) Amazing Value for an amazing place!!!

Now the day of my wedding was a dream come true. I left notes on all the little things I had and asked them to set up the tables a certain way and they were excellent! My maître’d was one hell of a woman.. she made sure that our wedding day went smooth and seamlessly as possible. She came up to service us without us having to call her. She even helped my Disabled mother & mother-in-law with anything they needed.

I can go on and on about this place so I will wrap this up. The waiting staff was beyond superb and extremely professional. White Glove service all the way. The food was above and beyond. The hall is well up kept and most of all, my guest claim our wedding was the best they have ever went to( and that is important)!

I could have not done it without the help of villa Russo and their elite choices of Vendors!!!

We had a 50 Anniversary for my Mom & Dad several years ago at Villa Russo's. Since they are so good we had to return. I must say that I almost thought that my reception was not going to take place because my dad was released from the Hospital the same day. I was truly on an emotional roller coaster that whole week. Susan really reassured me and personally helped me out with my seating arrangements. The staff was so helpful and understanding about everything. It was a GOD sent that my Dad was well enough to dance with me. My maitra Dee was the bestest in the whole world. I was so excited I forgot her name but any little thing I needed she was there to help out with. I couldn't ask for anything more. Everyone made you feel like family. With the family touch and the professionalism I say again, there was nothing else to ask for. Luv You ALL. Thank you

Villa Russo was the place I fell in love with. It was literally love at first sight. I worked with Jennifer Fulgeri and she was the topping on the cake. She made sure everything was perfect and didn't want us to worry about anything. She was in full control. I was amazed on how beautiful she made the place look and how she set it all up. Villa Russo will definitely see me again.

Villa Russo was the reception venue we used for our wedding day. This place will definitely provide the bride and groom with quality service. Our banquet manager was Betsy Hernandez whom handled all our wedding details from the very beginning up until the day of our wedding. Betsy is super friendly and will provide you with her suggestions and recommendations for planning your wedding reception at Villa Russo. She was very helpful at helping us select food options in accordance with our guests preferences and diet restrictions. What I enjoyed the most about Villa Russo was their beautiful rooms as well as the fact that the wedding cake is included in the wedding package. Our guests continued to rave about how delicious the food AND the cake was up until today. Villa Russo will provide quality service at a reasonable price. I definitely recommend Villa Russo to all brides planning their wedding day and whom are searching for a reception venue.

Amazing! From the moment I walked into the Villa Russo we were treated like old friends. Jennifer Fulgieri

Jennifer answered any and all of my questions within 24 hours, was extremely helpful, and along with the wait staff made my Wedding Rehearsal an unforgettable evening.

All I can say is that it my wedding day was the most perfect day of my life!

Jennifer was my banquet manager and from the day I booked with her, she was very attentive with all the details I needed to make my journey smooth and easy. She is very patient and helpful and reassures any nervous bride (Like me!), that everything will turn out o.k and beautiful and believe me: it did.

The night of my wedding, from the moment I stepped out of my limo, the maitre'd Kim greeted me and led me throughout my whole ceremony and reception. She was great! I booked The Palace and it looked amazing, just how I told Jennifer I wanted it to look and more!!!

The staff was super friendly. The food was awesome, my guests loved it and overall, everything was greater than I could've imagined. My experience with Villa Russo was one I will never forget. I will recommend this place to any couple planning a wedding. My husband and I were very happy with how everything turned out. For me it WAS a dream come true.

The night of my wedding, from the moment I stepped out of my limo, the maitre'd Kim greeted me and led me throughout my whole ceremony and reception. She was great! I booked The Palace and it looked amazing, just how I told Jennifer I wanted it to look and more!!!

The staff was super friendly. The food was awesome, my guests loved it and overall, everything was greater than I could've imagined. My experience with Villa Russo was one I will never forget. I will recommend this place to any couple planning a wedding. My husband and I were very happy with how everything turned out. For me it WAS a dream come true. Read less

Villa Russo did an incredible job in making my ceremony and reception a night to remember.
Everything looked beautiful and the staff was very courteous.
It was also an honor meeting the owner of such a wonderful catering hall.
We will highly recommend them to everyone we know and hopefully will have the pleasure of enjoying their services again.

The hall was our number 1 choice. We had both been there for other events and loved the style, the food and the price. We had a lovely planning experience with our banquet manager, Jennifer, and she made the planning process a pleasant one. However, the day of the wedding we had a few snags. We had booked a hospitality hour to take our photos indoors as we got married in winter and they kept me outside without a coat for 15 minutes. When they finally let us in, they didn't have our space ready for pictures so they stuck us in the stairwell for 20 minutes until they finally let us in the room we paid for. To add insult to injury, the food and drink we were promised for the hour of photos, was not given and it took me asking 4 waiters to get 1 glass of water. Luckily, once the maître d' came out, Destini, she was able to fix things and get us all comfortable for the rest of evening.
