The Noto's family was nothing short of kind, flexible, and helpful! They were willing to work with the needs of our families as well as what my husband and I were hoping for. They also allowed us to take pictures in the wine cellar. Our photographer was thrilled and we could not have been happier with the night!! Great place for a reception with amazing food and wonderful service.

We held our wedding in the wine cellar in the basement. The service was amazing, the food was delicious, and the venue was beautiful. It was certainly a little pricier than some of the other venues we'd looked at in the area, but let me tell you, it was completely worth it. We could tell where every penny went to. Joann, one of the owners, was beyond helpful. She always responded within 24hrs (always!) and was both friendly and professional. Our families and guests were impressed with the day and overall experience too. I really can't say enough about how happy we were with our experience at Noto's - if you're considering them, go for it! You won't be disappointed.

We had both our ceremony and reception at Noto's in October, and I cannot stop raving about how wonderful it was. We required so little decoration, because Noto's is an absolutely beautiful place. When we began looking for wedding ceremony/reception venues, we assumed we would use GVSU because we're both alum, but I forgot all about GVSU as soon as I saw Noto's and met Joann.
What's so fabulous about Noto's is that they're family-owned, and Joann Noto is such a pro at what she does. She and her brothers will go the extra mile to make sure you have exactly what you want, and although they're pricier, it's worth every penny. The food was absolutely fabulous, and the bartenders and caterers were helpful and attentive all night. We truly felt like royalty on our wedding day! I must have emailed Joann 1000 times throughout our engagement, and she was quick to reply and never made me feellike I was bothering her. We even had to switch rooms when we had more people to invite than anticipated, and she didn't skip a beat!
The best part about Noto's is their wine cellar. Do not leave your tour without taking a peek! Our photos from the wine cellar are spectacular and it's a beautiful, intimate setting. We used Bella Torre for getting ready and for formal photos, and it was gorgeous.
After dinner, we decided to go with their espresso/biscotti bar. This was great, except we didn't make enough of an announcement about it and it was underused- make sure to let people know it's available.
We'll always remember our wedding day as the best day of our lives, and it wouldn't have been the same without Joann and the wonderful Noto family.
In short: Worth every penny!!!

Noto's provided everything we could have asked for in a reception site. The people were amazing to work with (especially Joann), and the food was delicious. Everyone had a wonderful time, it was beautiful.
Noto's Old World atmosphere speaks of quality and care, from the elegant banquet rooms to the spectacular entryway featuring a white marble staircase climbing to a beautiful ballroom and descending into the newly completed wine cellar. Great food and great wine!
