One word: Tony
One word: Tony. There is no Peninsula Italian American Social Club without Tony Vitrano, the general manager and man behind the scenes of this place. Don't get me wrong, there are many wonderful things to say about PIASCSM. The venue is beautiful, the food is good, and the value is excellent, but what brings it all together is Tony. We had our wedding there in January 2019 and for weddings, they have packages set up that you can choose from and add onto or adjust based on your needs and desires. We chose to go with the Gold Package for our wedding and bring in our own DJs, photographer, and videographer. The Gold Package includes all inclusive venue rental with set up, clean up, linen upgrade, chair covers with sash, floral centerpieces from Lester’s Flowers, cake from Dianda’s Bakery, wedding invitations (printed online), house wine for dinner, hor d’oeuvres during cocktail hour (we added on open bar), and buffet dinner. Added bonus with the package is overnight hotel stay in a suite at Crowne Plaza and the contact there can help you set up a room block too. Tony was our first point of contact and walked us through the entire process, set up times for us to come by for food tastings, met with us and our vendors (DJs) about set up and audio needs, and even provided some uplighting to make the hall look great. We had our wedding ceremony in the courtyard in front of family and friends, then took pictures there after while everyone moved inside for cocktail hour. If you are looking for a venue for your wedding, look no further. Give Tony a call today, you won’t regret it.Sent on 03/22/2019

Peninsula Social Club Foundation Crab Cioppino Dinner
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Peninsula Italian Social Club for the support and enthusiasm for the first annual Peninsula Social Club Foundation Crab Cioppino dinner fundraiser. Tony Vitrano not only suggested the Crab Cioppino dinner in the first place, but oversaw many details to make sure the evening went off without a hitch. Chef Matteo was committed to making this event the best ever, the dinner was outstanding. We have had many people asking if we will be doing it again next year and I am very happy to say that we have already scheduled another dinner for next year on January 26, 2020.Sent on 06/09/2019

Hidden Gem Offering an Outstanding Event Venue
Under the professional direction of Manager Tony Vitrano, the Peninsula Italian-American Social Club (PIASC) hosted my daughter's wedding ceremony and reception last October (2018). Tony and his team did an amazing job of transforming the venue into the beautiful "Wine Country" theme we had envisioned. Tony is an outstanding event coordinator and took care of all the wedding day details, both large and small. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding experience. The PIASC is a hidden gem in San Mateo and I would highly recommend this venue, and especially working with Tony, for your next event!Sent on 01/31/2019
The Peninsula Italian American Social Club of San Mateo's reply:Hi Tamera, and thank you so much for the kind words.
