Great experience!

I got married here in August ‘22. I was skeptical getting married at a casino at first but my worries quickly disappeared as soon as I met Amanda and her team. They were so accommodating and easy to work with and made planning and the day of a breeze. The banquet space can easily get blocked off and make it feel like you’re not even at a casino. Manny and Michael checked in on my husband and me multiple times during the day to make sure everything was running perfectly. We were extremely happy with how everything went and cannot say enough good things.

Gabriela and The Landing were great to work with. Great place for bridal party and guests to stay for area weddings. We had makeup and hair artists come in to get ready for wedding.

Over and above anything we dreamed of. The venue was so accommodating on every level from planning to check out. Our guest could not get over the quality of service and are still talking about. BUT THE FOOD....Our band had done weddings all over the world (literally) and were blown away. They have called us and asked for the name of Villa Italia to see if they would ship to NYC. Plates were scraped clean even though the cocktail hour was a culinary delight and everyone insisted they couldn't eat another bite. Villa Italia desert ROOM, Pastries as far as the eye could see, ice sculptures with gelato, chocolate fountain, cake station, cordials, and so much more. MY ONLY WISH IS WE COULD GO BACK AND DO IT ALL OVER.
