"This was the best wedding ever!", "That Viennese Hour was insane!", "How did you find this place?". These are just some of the comments we received all throughout our wedding reception and afterwards. Our guests are still raving about the food, service, atmosphere, and overall amazing time they had.
We had looked at several wedding venues in New Jersey and none could match to the Villa Barone Hilltop Manor in New York. We traveled an hour because we knew how exceptional this reception hall was by word of mouth.
Thank you so much to Nicky, Vinny, Christina, and the rest of the staff at Villa Barone. The lake and outdoor grounds for pictures were absolutely breathtaking. The food was cooked to perfection and offered such a variety to satisfy everyone's tastes, personal preferences, and dietary/medical needs (including celiac). All of the wait staff accommodated everyone with such professionalism and ease.
We can't wait to go back for someone else's wedding!
Everyone at the Villa Barone is amazing and the food is out of this world. We did not have to worry about a thing. We highly recommend having your reception here. As a bride I felt like a princess, and it is a day that I will never forget.
Villa Barone was the first and only venue I visited after I got engaged. I fell in love with it as soon as we walked in the front doors. We met with Vinny and he took such great care of us from day 1. The night of our wedding we were treated like royalty. My bridal attendant, Christina, was out of this world. She was there for me the whole night and even put my napkin on my lap! Christina and James made sure we ate at our cocktail hour and even made us plates of food and took us into a private room away from our suite. The food was out of this world! Our guests are still calling us to tell us how delicious everything was. I'm recommending the Villa Barone to everyone I know who is engaged (just so I can go back and attend a wedding there!)!
I will never be able to fully express my gratitude and appreciation for everyone at the Villa Barone Hilltop. They were incredible to work with and made our wedding reception absolutely perfect. Their staff is professional, courteous, and no one can come close to their attention to detail. Everyone involved in our reception made us feel like we were a part of their family and we knew right away we were in good hands. We had guests from all over New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Arizona, and Florida and we are still receiving compliments that ours was the best wedding they ever attended. Villa Barone will always be in our hearts for making our reception simply amazing. The piece of mind given to us knowing they had everything taken care of allowed us to sit back and truly enjoy our reception. The Villa Barone cannot be beat.
From the moment we walked into Villa Barone Hilltop Manor we knew it was where we wanted to have our wedding. The staff was a pleasure to work with, easy to contact, 110% professional! Anytime I called to ask a question or we went for a visit we were met with a warm smile and greeted by name.
Our wedding night was the wedding of our dreams. They accomodated everything we had asked for without any hesitation or question. Our guests are still raving about the food and the venue as a whole and saying "it was a top notch wedding". I would recommend ANYONE to Villa Barone Hilltop Manor. I seriously cannot say in words how wonderful this place is. It is a must see and a must do! If I had to do it all over again...I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you Vinnie and Nicky for EVERYTHING! Villa is the best of the best!

We just had our wedding reception there on August 24. Everything could not have gone better . The service was amazing. They were always watching to see if there was anything that we needed. Everyone here was so nice and friendly. Nick made us feel like family and even did the MCing in English and Italian for our families. The food was absolutely amazing . All of ours guests loved the food and they want to come back because they loved it so much. Even the set up from the cocktail to the reception to the Venetian was done perfectly. If me or my parents had a question or had to drop something of to Nick or Vinny they always answered our question and said what time works for you. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our wedding and we are so happy we choose to have our wedding there. Then even had an off site lakefront area for photos. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!!!
We held our wedding reception at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor this past July.
From the moment we booked our wedding date to the time we left that night we were extremely impressed.
It was the most amazing day and we could not have been happier. The quality of service was top notch. You can be assured a wonderful wedding with their fantastic organization, attention to details, food & beverage and fabulous staff.
5 Stars to Nick, Vinny & their Team .... Thank you so much for making this the best night of our lives!

My husband and I cannot rave enough about what an amazing and truly magnificent fairy tale wedding we had. None of this would have been possible without the amazing Villa Barone. Our wedding day was by far the best day of our lives. Johnny and the staff at Villa Barone helped create a magical fairy tale wedding. From the décor to the friendliest and classiest staff my husband and I can’t thank you enough. Johnny has been there every step of the way from giving us ideas to helping make our day run that much smoother. Johnny went above and beyond each step of the wedding process to ensure we would have a smooth and perfect day. At times if I was unsure of something or being a bit of a bridezilla, Johnny and the staff at Villa were right there to re-ensure me that all is well. From the last details of my blinged out cake to bringing two trucks full of wedding items prior to the big day, the staff at Villa Barone was more than accommodating and sweet.
Once again we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and love all of you at the Villa Barone Hilltop Manor. Brides and grooms to be please don’t hesitate in booking your special day with Villa Barone.
We love Villa Barone and are ending our year at their famous NYE Party. It only seems right to end our magical year at the place that helped make our wedding day one we will never forget for as long as we live.
Lots of love,
Nicole & Gregory
The staff at Villa Barone from the servers to the owners exceeded all of our expectations for our wedding day. From the time we booked until the moment we left on our wedding night, everyone made sure that our guests and the bridal party were well taken care of. Everything was set up perfectly upon our arrival and looked beautiful. There was not one detail to worry about while dealing with this professional staff. The food was phenomenal, some of our guests thought that cocktail hour was the main course! My husband and I had our own bridal assistant who was AMAZING! Every time we turned around she had a drink or plate of food waiting for us, without being asked. She made sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. We can't say enough good things about Villa Barone and we 100% made the correct decision by choosing Villa Barone!!
First, a huge and heartfelt thank you to the Villa Barone Hilltop Manor staff for a wedding reception better than we could have ever dreamed of. My husband and I had our reception at the Villa Barone last month and we still cannot get over what an amazing wedding we had. If I could give 10 stars to Nicky and the staff at the Villa Barone, we would! From the moment we walked in for our first meeting until we left our wedding reception, they made us feel like family. Their attention to detail, their flexibility in working with us and our budget, and their excitement to help make our wedding beautiful never went unnoticed. The entire staff was nothing but exceptional, professional, and a complete pleasure to deal with. They made the stressful process so easy - and fun - and I honestly could not have imagined a more perfect day. My husband and I had so much fun at our own reception - something many people have told me does not often happen because of all the day's stress. Not us! Picking the Villa Barone for our wedding reception was one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process. And of course, I can't write a review without mentioning their amazing food. My only regret is not saving enough room for the delicious zeppoles we had for dessert. I am already recommending all of my newly engaged friends and family to consider the Villa Barone.
Words can't express how amazing our reception was at Villa Barone. Vinny from day one reassured us about all aspects of the day. His team was unreal. Our bridal attendant Kristina was absolutely amazing - she helped me out with ANYTHING that I needed. Steve as well was a great help to us, especially to my husband. The service was impeccable. Our guests could not stop raving about the food and their attentiveness. One of our guests as well were gluten free and was catered to what he needed. The little touches is what meant most to us. To any bride who wants a day to remember, this venue is absolutely amazing!!!
Our wedding was everything we had hoped for, thanks to the incredible event they put on for us at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor. The entire staff provided us with unmatched service and attention to detail from the planning through our wedding night. The food was excellent and guests are still talking about how good everything was. Having been to numerous other wedding venues, Hilltop Manor provides a level of quality and service that have earned them a well deserved, great reputation. Thank you Hilltop Manor!
The Villa Barone Hilltop Manor location is absolutely breathtaking! In addition to that the staff and service we received was top notch. The food was absolutely amazing and our guests had the BEST time. Our wedding was the BEST wedding our families have ever been to and we couldn't have done it without the help of Vinny and his amazing staff! My husband and I truly felt like King and Queen for a day! We loved every moment of our wedding and glad we decided to go with the BEST at the Villa Barone Hilltop Manor. Thank you Vinny for all of your help in making our day so special. Best Regards, Cesar & Vanessa Jimenez
Couldn't have asked for a better wedding!! They did exactly what we wanted and more!!! Everyone was amazed by everything there that night. Thank you for making our wedding such a memorable one! Vinny - you're amazing!
