I can’t say enough good things about this place. This place is beautiful. It is so nicely decorated, you really don’t need to add much at all. The entire venue has a very warm and inviting feel to it. If you like the pictures they have on the website, it looks even better in person. It has an elegant and vintage look, and it is unlike any other venue I have visited. We absolutely loved the Venetian inspired décor and felt like we stepped into a little place in Italy. The food is delicious here. First of all, they give you a lot of food and a lot of choices. We upgraded our package to include a hot buffet for our cocktail hour. It was so worth it. Everyone loved the food. We also decided to get the Venetian hour. Our guests were very happy to leave with goody bags of sweets that they just couldn’t wait to enjoy later. Lastly, I have to commend the Staff. I cannot express how grateful I am to them for helping us plan and carry out every detail of this wedding. Jennifer was managing our wedding. She is amazing and was such a sweetheart. We had a unique request for our wedding cake and she made sure we were able to get what we wanted. Thank you to Danielle, who made our cake. It was everything we could have hoped for and more. Our Maître d’ was Kim. She was awesome. She has so much experience and it shows. She had everything moving along effortlessly and with such control. I felt so confident with our event in her hands. The rest of the staff that we dealt with was also so nice and accommodating. Thank you to Jennifer, Susan, Betsy, Kim, and the rest of the staff at Villa Russo for making our event so special. My guests are still talking about how much fun they had, how good the food was, how great the service was, and how beautiful the place was. We will definitely host future events here.

You two were simply amazing. Thank you! From the moment we met you Susan, through the day of the wedding meeting Eric. You guys did and exemplary job: so kind, thoughtful, professional – always there for us. You were a joy to work with. We were not one bit nervous or worried because you guys were on top of everything and had it all under control. My sisters wedding reception and ceremony was absolutely beautiful, smooth, worry free (even though you were late) and we were able to focus on the bride , the groom and our loved ones because of your hard work. we had so many compliments made about our reception: from the food, to the service, the decor. Your staff was truly amazing pleasant kind and always right there when you need with smiles on their faces you have a staff that I will call gems. your venue is a place that I will recommend to all..... hope to see you guys soon

Its simply beautiful and elegant. All of the employees work with you every step. They make sure you don't forget anything. The place is decorated so beautiful. It's very stress free. All you need is centerpieces basically. Everyone at my wedding was floored with the beauty of this venue. I had the palace room. It has a balcony for the bridal party. Simply great. Now the food!!!! It was a hit! Seriously the best food. Everyone loved it. From the appetizers to the cake. It was all good! I'm glad I chose this place. It was perfect

Everything was exceptionally fabulous. The staff made sure everyone was taken care of.They even catered to my nephew as soon as they heard he was allergic to certain kinds of food. My guest they can't seem to stop talking about the food and the service they received. I must also say that working with Jennifer Folgerie was a pleasure. I felt as though I was working with a family member. She is great. I would recommend Villa Russo to anyone who has an occassion to celebrate.

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.
