There are not enough positive words to express how amazing our wedding was at the villa barone hilltop manor! The service was amazing, the food was delicious, and my husband and I were treated like royalty on our special day! Our guests are still raving 3 weeks later about how amazing the Villa Barone Hilltop Manor was!! I cant wait to attend another function at this amazing venue!

BEST VENUE posted 8/2/2013

Villa Barone Hilltop Manor was amazing! The owners and staff treat you like family and you will not find a better deal in town. The food, the service, the complimentary extras and the venue are all exceptional. Your guests will rave about everything for a lifetime. There are numerous places for gorgeous pictures whether it be at one of the fountains, waterfalls, private balcony's or the location on Lake Mahopac. The cocktail hour is unique because there is 100% seating and more food than most people serve at a reception. The reception cannot be beaten. There is a champagne march/welcome, enough servers to serve the entire wedding within 5 minutes (my wedding was 270 guests) and there is never a line at the bar. Also, for just a little extra you can do the venetial hour which includes an extra hour without fees to extend the open bar, sparklers, ice sculptures and more dessert than you have ever seen before. The staff are ontop of everything from timing, to drinks to food. There is also a complimentary bridal suite, bridal bathroom and bridal attendant. You get the LED wall lights for free also. This venue does not nickle and dime you like all the others. Even as I was making changes on the Thursday before my wedding, they never told me NO. I trusted them to get everything done and they exceeded my expectations. You will always feel like part of the Villa Barone family if you have you wedding here. Our guests will be gushing for a lifetime. It was amazing!

Just Perfect! posted 7/6/2014

The staff at Villa Barone from the servers to the owners exceeded all of our expectations for our wedding day. From the time we booked until the moment we left on our wedding night, everyone made sure that our guests and the bridal party were well taken care of. Everything was set up perfectly upon our arrival and looked beautiful. There was not one detail to worry about while dealing with this professional staff. The food was phenomenal, some of our guests thought that cocktail hour was the main course! My husband and I had our own bridal assistant who was AMAZING! Every time we turned around she had a drink or plate of food waiting for us, without being asked. She made sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. We can't say enough good things about Villa Barone and we 100% made the correct decision by choosing Villa Barone!!

Honestly our words can not express our thanks to everyone at the Villa Baorne Hilltop Manor. It all started with the venue. We had so many concerns about the venue and our guests having accommodations. Dominick and Steve put our minds at ease and gave us great suggestions, Johnny gave us recommendations for other vendors and said we should call him if we had any difficulties. He reminded us that we should be treated as VIPs and to accept nothing less. We then met Nicky and Vinny and when we thought we had concerns about the room set-up Nicky stopped what he was doing came out of his meeting and immediately resolved all the last minute details. we then met Antonio. Antonio, is very experienced and a detail oriented professional. On the day of our wedding, Antonio was in complete control and ensured that every detail was handled with class. every guest and family member were treated as royalty. No detail escaped him and the entire day was flawless. Our guests, some of which who have attended many weddings in the NYC area, have said they have never before experienced such an amazing wedding. Our special day was ensured by our experience and treatment by the caring professionals at Villa Barone Hill Top Manor who treat you like family.

Amazingly Flawless posted 10/7/2013

From the very beginning i worked with Vinny who catered to every need that me and my husband had!
Fast forward a year and the day of went perfect. We decided on doing first look at the lake house which i couldn't be more happy about. It was so beautiful and freed up so much time to enjoy our special day with family and friends.
The ceremony was outside and was gorgeous, the cocktail hour was so delicious and the reception started with a Champagne toast that was done so wonderfully.
They accommodate our special cake request which was such a hit and our maitre'd Antonio went above and beyond all night. There were a few hiccups with my dress and my bridal attendant Kristina was right there to help out ! I felt like royalty and my guest were treated so well.
At the end of the night a guest was forgotten by the bus and the staff went way above and beyond to assist us in rectifying the situation!

I would get divorced just to get remarried at the villa Barone!

Run dont walk to this magically place that will truly make you feel like the most beautiful bride ever!

p.s im addicted to the clams and fried shrimp entree!

AMAZING venue! posted 9/6/2013

Vinny, Nicky and Gianni,
We cannot thank you enough for all your work for our wedding in May. From the minute we walked in the door for the first look at the venue if felt like we were family. You all took plenty of time to show us around, answer any questions and make us feel as though we were going to be the only wedding you were doing all year!
The food, the service, all the staff, the grounds, everything about the Villa Barone Hilltop is amazing. We are still hearing from our guests on how wonderful the night was and how awesome the food was.
The food... where do I begin! Your guests will not go hungry! The cocktail hour is equisite and the food for dinner is spot on. The cake that they baked on premises was amazing too! The dessert course was to die for. And the staff is so curteous, professional, and very understanding of each guests needs. AMAZING team!
We cannot thank you enough for all your help in helping us plan and have the most wonderful wedding ever. It was everything we had hoped for, and more.
xoxo, Marissa & Josh

PERFECTION AT ITS BEST!!!! posted 7/6/2013

Gianni, Nick, Vinny and the staff at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect! Vinny and Dominick had the room running flawlessly!! They communicated and executed with total perfection! Christina, my bridal attendant, was amazing! She helped all of us with everything! She was on point, efficient, ahead of the game, and super attentive. Dealing with Gianni throughout the wedding planning process has been a true pleasure. They are very easy to work with and accommodating! The entire staff was on point the entire night!! So much work went into the wedding, both behind the scenes and on, and it showed! The venue is absolutely gorgeous!!! My guests cannot stop raving about how wonderful the food and the service were throughout the entire night!! We had 350 guests and it didn't feel like that at any point. Every guest was taken care of one on one, the room was laid out perfectly, and they could be inside or outside by the fountains as they pleased with more than enough seating and space for everyone. We just got home from our Honeymoon and continue hearing stories about how amazing everything was at Hilltop Manor. I would recommend Hilltop as a venue to anyone and everyone that asks my advice! Gianni, Nick, Vinny and the entire staff have been perfecting weddings for years and it shows! I hope all the brides out there seriously take this review into consideration! Choosing Hilltop Manor to cater your wedding will be one of the smartest decisions you make in the wedding planning process.

Our wedding day at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor was flawless. The staff made us feel like family each time we visited with them during the planning process. The food and service on our wedding day was great. The ballroom is gorgeous as well as the outdoor spaces. All of our guests enjoyed the wedding and continue to talk about what an amazing time they had. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a perfect day!

A dream come true posted 6/19/2013

This place was better then I could have ever dreamed. The place is beautiful, the food is to die for and the staff is amazing!! I was treated like a princess and everything was perfect. Several guests told me it was the best wedding they had ever been to and weeks later I still have people thanking me and telling me how perfect everything was. 5 stars hardly do them justice, I'd give them 100 if I could.

Magical Night! posted 6/4/2013

We held our wedding reception at Villa Barone and it was just perfect. From the moment we went to meet with them, we were treated like long time friends. Everyone was so attentive, the room was beautiful and the food (of course) was top notch! My husband and I are very grateful for all of the staff at Villa Barone! We look forward to Carnivale 2014!!
