Most amazing wedding ever!!
We chose Salvatore’s early on in the wedding planning process to host our reception and it was such an amazing choice! They are truly a class act. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, they kept amazing communication with me and made the whole planning process very smooth and easy, which was very impressive seeing as though I was having over 300 guests at my wedding! My wedding coordinator, Kate Tolley, was absolutely amazing! She was so patient with us and had the best suggestions to make the night absolutely perfect! She was so easy to get a hold of and was so important to my whole day! I described to her how I wanted my room set up and she took amazing notes and remembered every detail. When I walked into my cocktail hour and reception, it was EXACTLY how I had pictured it in my head. Kate truly created my dream wedding and I am so thankful for that! Every staff member at Salvatore’s truly was amazing. The hotel staff, especially Jo Anne, went completed above and beyond for us and made everything truly special. The wedding itself could not have been more perfect. We loved that Capello’s is right inside the Delevan now and it made it so convenient for the girls to get ready right there! The service staff was phenomenal. I had several guests tell me how impressed they were at how amazing their servers were and how personable they were. The bartenders were also amazing! We had several drinks being served as well as a signature cocktail and they never missed a beat. The food was amazing, the ambiance was phenomenal, I truly just can not say enough about how happy my husband and I were with the entire process and especially the wedding day itself. I would recommend Salvatore’s to anyone looking to have an event, they are truly a class act and we could not be happier with our decision to go with them!Sent on 06/03/2019

We never thought we would have the perfect wedding... but we truly loved every single thing about this place. We worked with Janet Ciminelli and she was super helpful working with us throughout the planning process. Whenever we had questions, Janet was very prompt and thorough in her replies.Sent on 08/14/2019
The food tasting was in February, and although the did not have everything available for tasting (about 75% of the items you could choose from were there), everything on the menu is of high quality, and it is impossible to be disappointed. I highly recommend the Italian Wedding soup and the candied carrots. My favorite food was the Beef on Weck Crustini appetizer- seriously, it was delicious. We also LOVED our late night soft pretzel bar... I could not stop eating them!! The different cheese dips were AMAZING. Salvatore's also lets you choose and name your speciality drink (can be from their list or make your own) which is a nice personal touch for the evening (ours was a "Rogers on the Rocks"- rum, coke, and grenadine).
They recently refinished the carpets in the Bella/Amore ballrooms, and it is absolutely stunning. We had about 205 people attend our wedding, and spatially, there was plenty of room to sit/dance/mingle. What is also nice is having the bar area in the room but contained within its own area.
We dropped off everything (decor, cake topper, card box, etc.) the day before the wedding, and Janet gave us the option to let them place our items, or let us place things exactly where we wanted them (to which we arranged much of our items and left the place cards and a few small things for their workers to handle). This was great for us because it allowed us to make sure everything looked the way we wanted.
Brides: bathrooms are huge; my dress was a tough one to use the restroom in, so I could only go by taking off my entire dress... and I had a giant stall for two of my bridesmaids and I to work with lol. So, no matter what you'll be good if you gotta go!
Overall, I highly recommend this venue!!! Our reception was full of joy, and it ran so smoothly. This place is classy, gorgeous, and highly professional. I never once felt stressed... everything was truly perfect, and we are so happy we had our wedding here!!
PS sometimes they have deals when you place your deposit- we got a free couple's massage, as well as a free room for the night of our wedding at the Delevan (the hotel is also BEAUTIFUL, and it is attached to the venue-another giant perk of having your wedding here!!)
