    The Best Venue & Team!

    I am so happy we chose the Italian Club for our reception venue, it was everything we hoped for and more! We utilized the cantina on the first floor for our cocktail hour and later a cigar bar, and the third floor ballroom for our reception. The building is beautiful and our guests keep complimenting the venue choice. Even better than the venue itself is Mark, the on-site coordinator. Mark was excellent to work with throughout the entire process and made sure everything we requested was taken care of and went above and beyond to make our day special. Thank you Mark & the Italian Club!

    The Italian Club of Tampa's reply:

    Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to host your special day! Watching your vision come to life was remarkable and we are so happy to have welcomed you into our historic building to celebrate with your family and friends. A toast to you both - "Per Cent'Anni" ("For One Hundred Years")!

    A Historic Gem

    There Italian Club was a perfect venue for our wedding. We rented the entire building to make to convenient for our guests. Ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all took place on different floors. Mark was AMAZING. I had many questions throughout the process and he was super responsive. Would definitely recommend this venue. It has its own historic charm and we loved it!

    Beautiful Venue with an Amazing Coordinator

    Where do I even start, it was perfect. Mark is a GOD SEND. He quite literally stopped traffic so we could get pictures in the middle of a busy street. He was always immediately responsive, helped set everything up, and never made me feel like a bother. Extremely organized (which was a necessity for my type A self). The venue itself is 3 stories, but I only used the first and second floors. The layout was perfect and it was my fairy tale wedding.
