Villa Ragusa is an absolutely beautiful venue. Furthermore, its located in a nice downtown area (downtown Campbell). The staff is professional and accommodating and they offer very impressive all inclusive wedding packages. So happy I picked them for my wedding venue.Sent on 10/07/2014

Hilary and Laura were responsive, professional and helpful. If I wrote them an email, I would get a response in an hour or sooner. It was probably sooner but lets say an hour to be safe. The venue was flexible about with the vendors we wanted to use as well as the number of vendors . They were always forthcoming with all the options for the venue, like the bar limits, or when the vendors could start setting up, or the number of events that would also be taking place on the day of my event. All you had to do was ask and they would answer any question you had.Sent on 11/20/2014

We had our Reception at Villa Ragusa in July. VR is a massive and beautiful banquet hall that fits up to 600 people and was our top choice when choosing Reception venues. VR is very reasonably priced with one of the best alcohol packages!!Sent on 01/08/2015
We had the pleasure to work with Hilary throughout our planning process. We cannot express in words how amazing Hilary is. From day one, she was truly involved, answered every single one of our hundreds of questions (even if we re-asked the same questions), and made sure that our special day would turn out truly special. She was very easy to work with, always available, very responsive, and very accommodating when scheduling appointments to go see the venue. She helped us with everything from the small details to the big stuff. She put together a floor plan that best fit our needs/wants and even provided genuine advice from her years of organizing events. Laura another great coordinator was the one present on the day of our reception and she made sure everything ran by smoothly.
Other bonuses: VR has a kitchen that is perfect for food vendors to use, they build a dance floor to fit your size needs, have a wide selection for table cloth and chair sashes to choose from and to top it of there is also ample of free/safe parking in the area making it convenient for guests.
Overall, we're very happy with choosing Villa Ragusa as our Reception venue. We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone.

Just celebrate our wedding banquet at Villa Ragusa.Sent on 03/13/2014
What a memorable time it was. The place was well-lit (pictures online don't represent that well enough). Food was amazing! - They provided catering with the package we selected instead of outside catering. Guests of family and friends gave high praise to the decor.
We are very thankful and fortunate to have selected not just Villa the place, but the coordinator. Hilary was our main point of contact and an amazing coordinator. She definitely provided ease and relief among the stress. Clearly our easiest vendor that we worked with.

After searching reception sites high and low that would accommodate 250 people we came across Villa Ragusa. We met with Marisa and instantly hit it off. Their prices were very reasonable compared to other sites. We went with the priceless package and felt that it was the best value. It included things such as votives and candles, cake, appetizers, and chair covers. We also liked that they had a flat fee for their bar packages instead of a per drink price as all of the hotels do. The site was definitely more modern than some of the others we visited and the staff was very helpful.Sent on 02/16/2009
We did run into one issue at our tasting with the food that was served. They were very attentive and quickly re-schedule a new tasting. They assured us that all the concerns would be corrected, and they were. We received many compliments on the food. Marisa made sure the night flowed smoothly and that everyone had a great time. We recommend Villa Ragusa to anyone looking for a reception facility.

Villa Ragusa was great for our reception. My husband and I have big families and they had a very nice and big room too accomidate us. There were two other rooms to choose from, but the one we were in had a beautiful wooden dance floor and a long bar. They were great throughout the process. The coordinator met with us a few tie to explain things as well as talked to us frequtly on the phone. They had everything set up for us before we got there so there wasn't any last minutes things that my family had to worry about. THey had many options for colors and center pieces. Overall everyone had a blast at the reception and said that Villa Ragusa was beautiful. Tip: Great photo op. Have your photographer stand at the top of the stairs and look down at you to take pics to get the VG symbol. It is a great angle.Sent on 08/21/2008

This was one of our best vendors! We needed flexibility and that is what they offered. Fist of all, they had anywhere from 1-3 rooms that they can open up or collapse depending on the size of our wedding. We needed two rooms and it was OK that another wedding was taking place in the last room. They room separator made it so that we could not hear what was happening on the other end. They gave us options of menus that were very informative and it was helpful that the tax and gratuity was already included in the price per person. They offer a "Combination Plate" option in which every person can get two portions of a main dish. For example, people can have chicken and steak or chicken and fish, etc. The venue was beautiful and they are willing to do so much to make people happy. I also loved their service - they were very professional and courteous towards everyone.Sent on 11/16/2011

I loved working with Villa Ragusa. They worked with our budget, gave us lots of options, and in the end we ended up with exactly what we wanted/needed all for a price that none of our guests would believe. We got tons of compliments on the food, the bar, everything! The men especially have been coming to me, raving about the size of the prime rib. :-)Sent on 08/10/2008
I worked with Alison Gardanier throughout the whole process. She was very helpful, accommodating, and quick to answer any of our questions. The day of the wedding she was attentive to our every need and made sure that we were comfortable throughout the night.
I have to say, though, that the main reason we chose Villa Ragusa over other reception venues was the combination of size and price. We were estimating around 300 guests for our wedding, so our reception options were a bit limited. Most hotels maxed out around 200 and those that didn't were pretty pricey. In the end, we chose a hotel that maxed out at 280 and just tried to be happy. Luckily, a bout of bad service from that hotel prompted us to cancel our reservation and begin the search anew. Good thing we checked out Villa because we were able to accommodate more people, have much better food, a bigger dance floor, more space and a full bar for much less than we would have spent at the hotel.
