EVERYTHING was absolutely beautiful!!!
There are not enough words to truly describe how amazing our experience at Macaluso’s was, from the day we went to see the venue to the day of the party (our daughter’s sweet 16), everything was perfect! After numerous visits of different venues we just fell in love with Macaluso’s. Not just the elegance of the ball room but the attention of the smallest details made it all worth it. Elias and his staff where all wonderful to work with and we are truly appreciative of the remarkable job they did. Elias was very flexible and beyond accommodating, patient and knowledgeable; he was willing to work with us in every way possible in order to make our daughter’s Sweet 16 a SUPER SWEET 16. We had 150 guests and every guest complemented us on the venue, food (which was out of this world) and especially the staff. The staff was amazing, just wonderful, and very friendly and catered to every need we had, we cannot say enough kind words about them. Once again THANK YOU to Macaluso’s and the staff for doing an incredible job of making our daughter’s Sweet 16 one of the most memorable day of her life. From our family and friends we thank you and we highly recommend it!!!!!!!!!Sent on 08/08/2019
