All inclusive reception with highly knowledgable staff!
I cannot say enough good things about Pazzo's and Fay, the onsite coordinator! Several venues in Chicago required a lot work - bringing in chairs or tables or catering or buying all your own alcohol. While some brides like making those choices, I was planning my Chicago wedding from Boston, so I was looking for a beautiful venue with great food in one. I luckily found it in Pazzo's - and all for a reasonable price per person.
First off, the space itself - wow. The building is located right next to Sears Tower, and for out of town guests, it's really exciting to be so close to an icon. The room has high 75+ foot ceilings with a gorgeous atrium. This is where we ate dinner. The cocktail hour and dancing happened in the Pazzo's restaurant (to be near the bar, of course)! After I looked at other hotel/banquet rooms with few windows and saw Pazzo's unique space, I knew it was "the one."
Fay was so responsive and easy to talk to. She has been working at Pazzo's for 20+ years, and you can tell she is an expert when it comes to weddings. It was so reassuring to have her throughout the process. She was also very flexible and truly wanted to help you out and make it the best day for you and your guests! I also needed to bring in decor two days prior to the wedding (as opposed to the day before) for logistical reasons, and Fay let me store 220 pumpkins, 11 lanterns, the favors, name tags and more in her office.
The food was also top-notch. I have been to 30+ weddings in 5 years, and some weddings have dry or cold food. Not with Pazzo's! Everything was so tasty and the food came out very quickly. (FYI, I am a salmon eater through and through, but the filet/chicken combination was incredible and a crowd pleaser! We did also have the salmon, and I heard from guests it was also wonderful.) The late night pizza was definitely also appreciated :)
They were also very accommodating with allowing us to bring in desserts from a family bakery. They set up the table beautifully.
Finally, the bartenders were always moving and no one was ever at the bar waiting long for a drink - which everyone appreciates :)
You will not regret having your restaurant at Pazzo's! (Also, my mom was very insistent we have good food, so we actually ate at the restaurant prior to signing the contract. It's a great way to sample the filet, chicken, salmon entrees before you put down the deposit!)
Thanks, Fay and Pazzo's!!Sent on 10/13/2019

Amazing experience with Fay & Pazzo’s
Fay was amazing during our wedding experience. She worked with our needs and went above and beyond for us. We loved the venue. It was a real dream and people were raving about the food & venue space. I am so happy we got married there!! We had the time of our lives!Sent on 08/06/2019
The only thing I would note:
Make sure your DJ knows how to work with the large space and atrium. We told our DJ about the space and he said it would be no problem. People were able to hear the music but not the speeches. If you have people sitting on top you will need speakers up there as well, and possibly behind pillars for the speeches.
Again, it was a magical space to get married

Excellent Experience and Reasonable Cost
I can’t say enough good about working with Fay, Carmen, Jaser and the entire crew at Pazzo’s 311 for our wedding. The venue is beautiful, the food was great and the cost compared to other venues in and around Chicago was extremely reasonable.Sent on 07/12/2019
