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.
