    Ripa's Restaurant is in Lancaster, NY. They can accomodate 300 people for a wedding. I had 202 and we were quite comfortable. They only have one wedding per date so I didn't run into any other bride on my big day. The food is outstanding. If you want your guests to actually enjoy their meal, this is the place to go. Unpretentious Italian food. We had it served family style and everyone enjoyed it.

    I spoke to one contact person so we were always on the same page. At the last minute I wanted to add a cordial service after dessert. No problem. We also added wine carafts at the tables at the last minute. No problem.

    The wait staff was helpful. The bar staff was helpful.

    There were no disasterous bridezilla moments. Everything went smoothly and I got SO many compliments that our wedding was MOST enjoyable.

    I would reccomend anyone who is having a huge family wedding to come here. They are welcoming and accomodating.

    You can't beat the value. I paid less than $30 per plate including taxes and gratuity and open bar for a meal I would pay money for if I were on a romantic date for two.

    I had 30 kids at the reception and they made allowences in my price so as to not pay for the bar for them.

    CJ sound is already wired into their soundsystem. SO easy to get my DJ without a ton of setup time. But you could use any DJ or band you want.

    Ripa's set up the room just like I wanted it. I needed to get behind our wedding cake because we did cake pulls with our wedding party. No problem. they also set up my gift table and seating card tables with my decorations exactly how I wanted them.

    I would come here for any event in the future where I needed to accomodate a group of people for any reason.
