My fiancée and I toured Villa Russo after it was recommended to us. The hall itself is gorgeous, with lots of stone and brickwork that give the venue a real old-world charm. Jennifer was our planner and could not have been nicer or more helpful. We ended up getting their Sunday all-inclusive package, which simplified things greatly - the DJ, photographer, video, photo booth, and limo were all included. We had our whole wedding on-site at Villa Russo, holding our ceremony in the Grotto and our reception in the Palace Room. The event went very smoothly, with tasty food and lovely décor. All the choices we made with Jennifer's help were realized perfectly on the day itself. The maître d' and his team took excellent care of us all day. Villa Russo gets highest marks from us, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone else. A+++
My husband and I got married at Villa Russo in March. I was sold after the first appointment with Nicolette. She was accommodating and flexible to fit our needs. My husband was stationed overseas at the time so it was little overwhelming thinking of all the details without him but she made it very easy and was always responsive. I also met with Sue and Jennifer for later appointments finalizing details and they were just as helpful and kind. Now, words couldn't even begin to express our gratitude and appreciation for our Maitre D, Kim. From the second my husband and I arrived at the venue on our wedding day, she was simply AMAZING!. My husband arrived first with our favors and some decorations. He told me that as he was about to begin explaining to Kim where/how I'd like them set up she simply stopped him and replied with "don't worry, I got it". By the time I arrived, she certainly did have it all under control - there wasn't a single thing out of place. She coordinated with our vendors to make sure everything ran smoothly, and always made sure we had anything we needed. My husband and I were never without our preferred drink at our table, my guests had no complaints on service, and everyone was happy. We'd like to thank Kim once again for making our wedding even better than I could have hoped for. Lastly, the food was outstanding! We chose to have family style appetizers, a salad course, pasta course and main entree. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the fried calamari and shell steak. We used the house bakery for our cake(we choose the Opera style) it was delicious! And, the HUGE selection of AMAZING cookies, pastries, coffee, tea and cappuccino's was outstanding. In conclusion, our wedding could have not been any more perfect! Thank you, Villa Russo!
Jennifer, I would like to thank you and letting you know that the party was amazing!!!!! We were impressed how nice everything was I have no words to thank you and every single person that worked that night. I felt like a queen, my friend on the wheelchair showed up and the personnel helped her so much. My family loves the place and they were so happy the food was excellent and the cake was marvelous as I told you before I will recommend Villa Russo to all my friends. However, I do not think that I have to recommend you because Villa Russo recommended yourself that night even my cousin that got married a week ago regret that he did not know about Villa Russo.
I am eternally grateful of you and everyone at Villa Russo. I have been so sad since my grandma passed and I never thought I would be happy. I tried to put a brave face and just go with it because we had invested so much. But yesterday when I saw the place and the experience of all the staff and service it blew my mind away. You guys made me so happy. I cried when I saw how beautiful the place was. In my opinion it demonstrated so much love and care. It touched me deeply. Jose was so helpful and I met George Russo and he is soo sweet! Oh Betsy the staff was so accommodating. How did you guys fall on our laps? I never thought for my wedding I would be treated so well! Above all, you have been the best and so reassuring. Thank you for being so patient and understanding. You are the best Betsy and I am so grateful to have met you and work with you. Not once in our meetings did I feel like "agh I gave to deal with the venue". Me and Tim thought and still think you are an angel.
