Like a fairytale!
My husband had proposed to me at Cafe Cortina and we kept talking about how beautiful the venue is. The patio is something out of a fairytale. On the day of our wedding, everyone commented on how beautiful the setting was and how we managed to decorate the venue to look the way it did. We hardly decorated aside from the centerpieces on the table. They were so accommodating. The service was excellent. The food was amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a unique venue!

My husband and I and our families are beyond grateful for the generosity of Rina and the rest of the staff at Cafe Cortina. Everything was breathtakingly beautiful. The food was beyond delicious. The service exceeded our expectations. Our guests were completely blown away, and many said that this was the best wedding food and service they've ever experienced--and the best food and service, period. One of my aunts commented that she's never been to a wedding where the waitstaff actually placed the napkin on her lap and kept water glass full. A friend said that she felt like she was a special guest at the restaurant, as opposed to most weddings where you don't really receive personal attention from the staff. People raved about every single course, and my mom is still getting phone calls from family and friends who say that they'll be coming back to the restaurant to dine.
Throughout this whole process, Rina was patient with my fiance and I; not only were we planning the wedding from out of state, but we kept going back and forth about the kind of wedding we wanted to have (more guests or less? dancing or not? lunch or dinner?). She gave us many option to accommodate our wishes and needs. I highly recommend Rina and Cafe Cortina for out of state brides (and in state, too, obviously, but she's very flexible and effective at working with brides who can't come to the restaurant in person very often). We didn't happen to use these vendors because we already had found our own, but Rina can even suggest vendors for you, from flowers to cakes, to officiants.
It's a really unique wedding venue, too; the garden patio is lovely, the dining rooms are both beautiful and don't really require much additional decoration (no need to spend money on chair covers or elaborate centerpieces). And most importantly (at least in our opinion) your wedding food will not be "wedding food"--it's high quality, made to order, delicious food that you and your guests will love.

Married in July 15th. Could not have chosen a better venue. First class experience all the way. Our guests could not stop talking about how they enjoyed the party, loved the food, and were amazed by the atmosphere.
