    Great Wedding Venue!

    My wife and I recently got married at Salvatore’s (May 2022) and we could not have had a better experience! Everything was perfect – the venue, the staff, and the overall wedding package that Salvatore’s provides. Just a phenomenal experience.

    First – the venue is absolutely beautiful! My wife and I barely had to bring any additional décor because the venue already had so much charm and character. We held both our ceremony and our reception at Salvatore’s. After the ceremony, our guests transitioned into the spacious cocktail room while the staff flipped the room to set up for dinner. It was so nice just transitioning from one portion of the night to the next without having to plan any logistics/travel. I think our guests really appreciated this as well. Salvatore’s has multiple rooms that you can utilize (including two separate rooms with big bars). They also have a great outdoor patio that our guest could get outside and get some fresh air.

    From a pricing perspective – you cannot find a better value downtown Chicago. Everything is handled by the staff at Salvatore’s (food, drinks, valet, set up, etc.), we did not need to worry about bringing in any other vendors. From start to finish they orchestrated the party. The food and the drinks were also great (still thinking about the Tortellini!).
    Finally – the staff was so great to work with! Marco and Renata always took time to answer any questions that we had (no matter if it was 18 months or two weeks before our wedding date). On our wedding day, the entire staff just wanted to make sure my wife and I were having a wonderful time. With all the planning that goes into one day, it’s great to have people reminding you and encouraging you to live in the moment!

    We would highly recommend Salvatore’s for any wedding/rehearsal dinner or event! It will always hold a special place in our heart and we cannot thank the staff enough for giving us the experience we both wanted!

Salvatore's is amazing because the coordinators, Suzi & Amanda, are simply OUTSTANDING. However, there are many more reasons Salvatore's is a fantastic venue.... If you want a classic venue with style, ambiance, and some of the best food offered in Chicago, Salvatore's is the venue for you. Every Bride & Groom we've performed at Salvatore's is so complimentary of Suzi & Amanda & the staff, as this speaks volumes to the excellent service Salvatore's provides. The are multiple areas within the venue highly conducive to both live music & DJ music, and they even offer an acoustic piano perfect for both the ceremony and the cocktail hour. Truly, Salvatore's is one of Chicago's gems! :)

When you're looking for a wedding venue that makes each guest feel like family, there's nowhere better than Salvatore's. As a professional DJ for Fourth Estate Audio, I've done about half a dozen weddings at Salvatore's, both in the Classico Room and the West Room; and Suzi, Amra and their staff are always attentive, sensitive and efficient. There's always that feel that venue and vendors are working as one to ensure a perfect event. And of course, the food is fabulous! Can't leave that out. Highly recommended.
