Hidden Gem in Lincoln Park!
My husband and I had our wedding at Salvatore’s on May 18, 2019. It’s a hidden gem in Lincoln Park and we are so happy we stumbled upon it! The venue is classic and elegant. It fit our 140 guests perfectly. The price is just incredible for a downtown Chicago wedding. We loved that we paid one price for everything and didn’t have to worry about upgrading so many details because everything that comes with Salvatore’s is top notch. Suzi and Lauran were amazing to work with! From the very beginning they are so helpful with every little detail and they truly know their stuff. Our favorite part by far was the food! My favorite part of wedding planning was easily the tasting. We did family style with caesar salad, two pastas and one chicken dish. Our guests still haven’t stopped talking about how delicious all of the food was and they were so happy they got to try a little bit of everything. I was so happy to hear that we got a wedding cake or tiramisu included too, but the tiramisu is hands down the best we’ve ever had! The service during dinner was exceptional. The bar selection was perfect and came with many options in beer, wine and liquors. The bartenders were outstanding and no one waited long for a drink. We loved having two bars with one removed from the dance floor for guests who needed a quick break from dancing too. Our wedding was an unforgettable night and we are so happy we had it at Salvatore’s!Sent on 06/03/2019

Would highly recommend! We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Salvatore’s and had such a great experience. The venue comes with two wedding planners that help answer all of your questions (and we asked a lot!). They were very patient and knowledgeable during the whole planning process, thank you Suzi and Lauran! Our guests could not stop raving about the food, I kid you not, numerous people said it was “the best food they’ve ever had a wedding”. The filet and tortellini were crowd favorites for sure. Also received a lot of compliments on the staff, who went above and beyond during dinner and great bartenders as well. Luckily, we had nice weather so many people got to utilize the nice patio space out back. Overall, this was an amazing venue with professional staff and service.Sent on 11/14/2019

Salvatore’s was amazing! I fell in love with Salvatore’s the moment I walked inside. I loved the location and the beauty of the venue. I also loved the atmosphere and feel of the venue. Suzi and Lauran were wonderful to work with. They were responsive and helpful. They also were meticulous and made sure to get all of the details right. I wouldn’t have been able to have gotten through my day without them. And then there was the food. It was fantastic and so good. My favorite was the vodka pasta, but everything was delicious. I received numerous compliments on the food and the overall beauty of the venue. I highly recommend Salvatore’s.Sent on 11/23/2019

We absolutely love working here. It is beautiful and the staff is always great to work with. We can't say enough good things about this place.
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.
