I just had my bridal shower this weekend in the new Laurel Room. The room looked beautiful, the wait staff was attentive, and the food was delicious. Everyone had a great time and I couldn't be happier! I also got a chance to check out the newly renovated ballroom (unfortunately it wasn't ready back when I was looking for reception sites). I highly recommend checking it out!Sent on 06/25/2018

We ended up using the services provided by the Italian Center for our actual wedding ceremony and lunch reception. The set-up is great as they were able to turn the ball-room around in about 45 minutes (when the guests were at cocktail hour downstairs during this time). Mark was a pleasure to work with as he was extremely cooperative and went the extra mile with whatever we needed. On the day of the event, the staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The entire event flowed smoothly. One of the greatest benefits of using this venue is that they let you bring your own alcohol. This ends up saving a ton of money if you are planning on having an open bar, and you can purchase in bulk!! My family and I are extremely appreciative of the work Mark and his staff put into making out celebrations a huge success. Thank You so much!!Sent on 11/13/2014

I held my wedding reception at the Italian Center last month. The quality of the organization, preparation, food, and staff is unbelievable. Simply put, the Italian Center knows exactly how a wedding should be run and they have perfected the method. My family has held multiple functions here through out the years (weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, including my own bridal shower), and each event has gone off without a hitch. We worked with Mark, the banquet manager, who was delightful through out the whole planning process, so organized, and easy to reach with any and all questions that came up. We received so many compliments from our guests that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I couldn’t have been happier with the entire process as well as with the end result!Sent on 08/10/2014
