The Italian American Club of Livonia was founded in 1977. With membership growing, a momentous decision was made in 1990 to build a new Clubhouse & Banquet facility. With then President, Tony Greco, spearheading the effort, financing was obtained and ground was broken in 1993, culminating with a Grand Opening Gala. We opened in August of 1994 with a beautiful 26,000 square foot, two level facility located on 5.21 acres of land at Five Mile Road and the I-275 Expressway in Livonia, Michigan. Serving the Metro Detroit Area in grand style, our premier facility is a wonderful venue for gatherings of all types.

IABC Should Be Your #1 Venue of Choice
As my fiancé and I began looking for a wedding venue, upon visiting IABC we were pretty much sold on the venue. The Grand Ballroom was exactly the type of venue we were looking for to accommodate the size of our wedding as well as capture the ambiance we were looking for. Upon our initial meeting with Vicky, who was incredibly sweet and informative, we were happy to learn the venue could not only cater to our needs but was also budget friendly compared to other venues we looked at! I can’t imagine our wedding reception taking place anywhere else as everything came together so perfectly that day. Fabiola, the general manager, worked personally with us on many details of our wedding. She not only exceeded our expectations for the reception but held us by the hand through the final details so as to alieve some of our worries about last minute details. The day of our wedding and in the weeks following, we heard from many of our guests that our wedding was one of the best they’ve ever attended. We know this wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible help from the Italian American Banquet Center staff and the venue which helped make it all possible!Sent on 03/17/2020

Truly Magical Evening!
We had an amazing reception at the Italian American Banquet and Conference Center. Fabiola was the best, she was so accommodating from our first time visiting the venue to the actual day. She answered every email and phone call promptly and even met separately with my mother when she had additional questions. We had our reception and bridal shower here, both were perfect. The food is amazing, I got so many compliments on the food from my guests. Especially the fruit and pastry display, which was beautiful! The staff were very friendly and the venue was absolutely stunning. I can’t say enough positive things about my experience here. Truly a magical evening!Sent on 06/06/2021

Can not say enough good things about this place and neither could our guests! The food here is amazing!! Everyone particularly loved the palomino pasta. Fabiola was great to work with and was great keeping us up to date with all the changes with COVID. Was well priced and worth every penny.Sent on 05/19/2021
