Best Day Ever!
We had our dream wedding at Il Villaggio on Sunday January 20th, 2019 (marital bliss made us late to leave this wonderful review). Il Villiaggio was actually the last place we looked at, as we thought this gorgeous and prestigious venue would be out of our budget. But, working with Patrick and some strategic planning, we knew we could make it work and that this was the place for us! With all the stresses of planning a wedding, Il Villiaggio made the process totally easy - from providing all information up front including payment plans, menus for cocktail hour & reception, and table sizes, to suggesting their additional room for the ceremony space AND we even hired The Wedding Boss to be our officiant. After the ceremony, we were ushered upstairs where we feasted on every savory tidbit offered at our cocktail hour (which was wildly appreciated since that was really the only thing we ate all night). From our entrance, to the first dance to the speeches, to the cake cutting, it was the perfect event. Our family and friends were blown away by the beautiful and regal decor of Il Villiaggio as well as the delicious food. Our wedding day had an expected guest, winter storm Harper. Instead of taking home the meals of our guests who could not attend due to the weather, we were welcomed to return on our first wedding anniversary to enjoy a meal at the restaurant. Having our wedding at Il Villiaggio was a dream come true, and we look forward to visit the restaurant as regulars for special occasions.Sent on 05/27/2019

The best wedding venue hands down!!
My husband and I knew when we walked in the venue September 2017 we wanted to book based on just the look of the venue. Our wedding was 11/17/18.Sent on 12/01/2018
Upon walking in the entrance is stunning, everything is beautifully decorated and that’s before you even get into the ballroom. The ballroom is absolutely breathtaking with the many beautiful crystal chandeliers, spaced out tables so every guest can get up and move around and a stage where we put the DJ so you have an ample dance floor without tripping over wires or having a speaker next to a table. We worked with Patrick for planning our wedding and it was truly a pleasant experience that exceeded all expectations. Patrick was there every step of the way with attentiveness and patience with every question and concern. The day of the wedding, the staff was tremendously unbelievable. Every single staff member was so considerate to our bridal party, our friends and family, and to us even going as far as to clean and bustle my dress. Patrick sent us a day of email with kind words and even fixed my husband’s bow tie and gave a groomsman suspenders when his broke. There is one server per table which is unheard of at certain venues in NY (where we’re from). I have been flooded with calls and texts about how beautiful the venue was, how amazing and abundant the food was and how fun the party was. All the preferred vendors from the venue we went with and truly every single vendor was amazing and made the experience that much better for us. The food from the venue deserves a whole review just on its own. Everyone kept saying leading up to the wedding that the bride and groom are too busy to eat the day of their wedding, however, the staff made sure we had food and enjoyed ourselves. Every detail was thought of and taken care of from the staff so all my husband and I had to do was just enjoy ourselves. There was nothing we wanted for because everything was even better than we could have imagined. We knew we made the right decision booking at Il Villaggio and I’m so grateful they gave us the most memorable night of our lives. If you are looking for an elegant wedding, with impeccable service and amazing food there is no other options go here.

Thank you Il Villaggio!!
IL Villaggio made our dream wedding come true! Patrick is a man of his word and his team over delivered and exceeded our expectations! From the first time we met him, he was there for us every step of the way leading up to our big day. He has a "can do" attitude and there was no request he wasn't able to help with. We got endless compliments on how great the food was. Our guests went on and on about the quantity and quality of the food and drinks. The venue is beautiful and our pictures and videos are gorgeous! Thank you Patrick and the Il Villaggio staff! We are forever grateful!Sent on 12/26/2018
