About

Villa Russo Catering is a restaurant wedding venue and caterer located in South Richmond Hill, New York. This stunning banquet hall is owned by Frank and Joseph Russo, sons of Italian immigrants who bring authentic Italian cuisine to their Queens neighborhood. Frank and Joseph got started in the food industry more than 58 years ago when they opened up Russo's Pizzeria in Richmond Hill. Through their dedication and hard work, they expanded their business into a full-service restaurant. In 1975 they opened their catering venue, Villa Russo, and in 1977 hosted their first wedding reception. This exquisite Italian villa has welcomed numerous events throughout the years and is a storied location for your celebration.

Facilities and Capacity

When you step into Villa Russo Catering you will immediately be dazzled by the ornate Italian architecture. The Palace Room features stone detailing, intricate and sparkling chandeliers, and a grand staircase that leads to the balcony. This second floor boasts an impressive balustrade and great views of the party below. The glossy tiled floor add to the elegance and are perfect for dining and dancing on late into the night. The Palace Room can accommodate as many as 275 guests, while other, equally beautiful dining rooms are better for smaller soirees. There is also a chic get-ready suite where you and your wedding party can prepare ahead of the festivities.

Services Offered

Villa Russo Catering offers comprehensive packages that will ensure your special occasion is seamless, sophisticated, and stress-free. These include DJ services, photography and videography, tables and chairs, a fully catered cocktail hour, a champagne toast, and a three-course meal. All dishes are prepared in-house and will bring the taste of Italy to your wedding. Ambient up-lighting packages and a top-shelf open bar are also available.
