Salvatore's has a reputation for excellence and they cannot be beat. Their pricing was fair and all encompassing. Kate and Krystle were great to work with to plan and execute every detail. They were detailed, accommodating and professional. Our room looked amazing, set up... Read More perfectly. Our food was delicious--it came out hot for everyone and on time. There was the perfect amount of time in between courses. We had a lot of choice in our packages and they were very accommodating to last minute changes. Trisha and her team did a great job that day.

They were absolutely gorgeous and she was amazing to work with, even coming to the church to make sure everything went as planned and everyone looked great.

I have never been so impressed with a business as much as I am with Salvatore's.

I had my wedding here July 2017 in the Bella ballroom. I had to go with a three here because some of my experiences were a 5 and some were a 1.

Read More great packages and are willing to work with you if you want something a little different. I did have a tough time getting a hold of my coordinator since I’m from out of town, but I believe this was due to the turnover we experienced during our planning period. If you do want something outside of their packages please be very, very specific. They missed the mark on a few things which is where I would put my 1. I would definitely use them again if I had to do it all over. The event was a great success and everyone had a really lovely time.

I had my wedding at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens this past weekend and everything turned out perfect. Before my wedding, I have never been to Buffalo, NY and never stepped inside Salvatore’s restaurant. I did all my planning online and hoped for the best. I came in without... Read More expecting too much but I was super pleased with the beauty of this place and the hospitality from everyone. A sincere thank you to Krystle who helped me with the planning and responded to all of my emails this past year. If I were a Bridezilla, then she dealt with the worst of me. Even at last minute, my flower vendor failed to deliver, and she stepped right in and got everything taken care of. Overall, the staff at Salvatore’s is very kind. Everyone. Not just to me but my family and friends commented that the people there are extremely nice to them as well. After having my wedding reception there and dealing with everyone, I recommend that if you truly want things to go right and even have it your ways, please communicate with them. Tell them what you want. They will try their best to please you. Seriously, people here will stop what they’re doing to help you. I was so busy, I forgot to schedule my hair and makeup appointment, I called the morning of my wedding and the Capello Salon at the Delavan hotel took me in right away. They really do accommodate to all your needs.

When my wife and I got engaged, the first thing we wanted to book for the wedding was the reception venue. We went to about a dozen different venues across the Buffalo area in search of the place we thought would be the most accommodating for our guests. The most important... Read More thing was that our guests had a great time, and never felt wanting anything. To us, this meant a fair package price, accommodations for our out of town guests, great ambiance in the ballroom, craft beer selection at the bar, wine with dinner, excellent food, and a nice large spot to dance (visible to every table). Salvatore’s knocks it out of the park in every single box we wanted checked. One of the first things that can take a potential venue off your list is the price. Salvatore’s was almost (if not the most) affordable venue that we looked at during our entire search. They have one hotel right on property, as well as another hotel they own that they provide constant shuttles to and from. Their Amore ballroom was absolutely stunning. We were speechless when we saw it set up the day before our wedding. Salvatore’s allowed us to purchase any craft beer we wanted to provide to our guests; we ended up getting a west coast IPA and a summer ale to go along with the two domestic beers included in our package. It was honestly surprising how many people would come up to us and tell us how outstanding the food was that night. I personally think that the food is probably the thing that people will remember most about the venue, and I couldn’t believe how many people absolutely raved about how good everything tasted. We had four passed hors d'oeuvres as well as a cheese and fruit station during the cocktail hour before the 5-course dinner started. The bottomless wine with dinner is perfect for the guests who forget to refill their drink before the bar closes while everyone eats. The steak was amazingly tender and delicious, and the chicken was excellent as well. Nobody will leave hungry after that meal. Even the vegans were impressed with how everything on their menu tasted. For dessert, we had cheesecake, wedding cake, and the Salvatore’s dessert station (where the cheese and fruit display was during cocktail hour). Lastly, the dance floor was placed perfectly in front of the head table, with the guest tables surrounding it in a U-shape so everyone had a great view of the guests that were dancing. Working with Krystle was an absolute pleasure. She was always quick to answer any questions we had about the reception, and we had nothing to worry about the week and days leading up to the wedding—she made sure everything was taken care of. She was upfront and honest about what everything would cost us (including our craft beer) and made sure we were in full understanding about how the night at Salvatore’s would flow. My wife and I truly could not be happier on our selection of Salvatore’s for our wedding. If we had to do it over again, we’d book there again without even hesitating. Every single aspect of the night was perfect, and it couldn’t have been done any better than what Salvatore’s did.

From start to finish, planning my wedding with Salvatore's was a complete dream. Every staff member we worked with, from the reception to the hotel, to the florist, to the staff working our reception were so friendly and accommodating. I didn't have a worry in the world when... Read More my big day rolled around because of Josette and the Salvatore's team. My husband and I chose to get married at Salvatore's for many reasons, the price being a huge factor. I was pleasantly surprised to see how affordable our wedding at Salvatore's could be when I compared venues. Another big reason we chose Salvatore's is that they allowed us to get married and have our reception immediately following the ceremony without having to transport our guests to another location. We had a lot of out of town guests and knew that the Garden Place Hotel and The Delavan Hotel would accommodate our numbers perfectly. Additionally, the hotel shuttle from the Garden Place to the restaurant was perfect and saved us hundreds of dollars, since we didn't have to book our guests' transportation to and from the hotel. Our florist, Paula Salvatore, had great ideas and was very reasonably priced. My flowers, especially my bouquet and centerpieces, were breathtaking. Throughout the planning stages, the Salvatore's team was right there to field questions and make our ideas a reality. I loved having a "one stop shop" for our wedding.
