Villa Penna did not disappoint (once again)! We had a 430 person wedding and all of our guests couldn't stop raving about the food & service. We had filet and chicken and everything came out perfect! The main coordinator, Jamie really was on top of everything. As the bride &... Read More groom, you don't want to worry about all the little things and because of her, we didn't! George Penna came out and visited with a few of our tables to reinsure everyone was happy (and to crack a few jokes - what a class act). The entire family puts their hearts and souls into this establishment and it shows in the professionalism of the service - from soup to nuts! Everything was beyond perfect! Thank you for making our big day so special. We highly recommend Villa Penna for any special occasion!!

I'm sorry to see the negative, 1-star review left for Villa Penna since my experience was nothing short of fantastic. I can't begin to explain how helpful Lisa and the office staff were from initial planning to the day-of. They always were able to take questions, the venue was... Read More super lax about policies - not to mention no 21%+ service charge or room fee, included coat check and valet. George was available to explain the preparation of the food and give advice on substitutions. They happily accommodated guests with dietary needs and allergies. The food was hands down the best wedding food I've had, it was a true Italian meal. We did family style and my guests were blown away with the precision of the timing as well as the quality of each dish. The venue itself has gone through extensive renovations and is beautiful. I've been to more expensive venues that don't hold a candle to what George has done with the place. They really helped make my reception a wedding people are using as a baseline to compare theirs to.

APPALLED BY RUDE TREATMENT I'm in disbelief by the unprofessionalism received during our scheduled appointment to tour the venue. Threw a packet down on the desk in front of me and asked if we had any questions. Failed to discuss any services Villa Penna had to offer.

Villa Penna provided a high quality, professional, and wonderful venue for our wedding reception. The staff was extremely helpful, flexible in scheduling appointments, always willing to answer my questions, and the price was incredible for what we received. I tend to hold very... Read More high standards for customer service and Villa Penna exceeded all of my expectations. The office staff who help you prior to the wedding are efficient, timely, and respectful. When my husband and I arrived at the hall we were greeted by the head caterer who stated that if needed anything throughout the night to let her know and she would take care of it. There were plenty of servers to ensure that all of our guests were served in a timely and appropriate manner. The servers were also professional and polite. My husband and I had our own personal server, but because we were speaking with our guests through the night we barely had time to eat anything. Our server came up to us at the end of the evening and told us that because she saw we hadn't had time to eat, she had packed us to go containers of all the food. When the reception was over, our linen company had not yet arrived to pick up the linens and so I began taking them down myself. The head caterer insisted that I stop and said that she and the other workers would take care of it. Even when I told her that felt badly because it wasn't her job, she said that she didn't mind and didn't want me working on my wedding night. I am so happy that we used Villa Penna's as our reception hall. Our guests couldn't get over the delicious food, and the entire night went smoothly without any worries. Villa Penna also has a great relationship with flower shops, cake bakeries, linen companies- which we learned when visiting with these other vendors! Compared to other places that we visited, Villa Penna offered much more for a lesser price.

A-Mazing Food

I love Penna's, and always have. We decided to have an outdoor wedding, which was beautiful and I'm happy we did. However, I had a hard time finding a quality caterer for the price range we wanted. I called Penna's on a whim to see if they did catering, and was surprised to... Read More find out they did!!! The only drawback is that they don't deliver. But since we were renting a passenger van, I had one of the ushers swing by and pick the food up. It was ready when he got there, and they helped carry everything out to the van. The food was warm, and ready to go! I would say since we had two meats and expected 150 people their trays actually carried more food than required as they come only in 50-person increments. We had ordered roast beef for 150 and chicken for 150 (as well as salad, new potatoes, mostaccioli, and garlic bread--each for 150). There was SO much salad left over, and we were actually boxing up food to send home with guests. I wouldn't have changed a thing though, because everything they cooked was great! Also, we had a few Gluten and Dairy-Allergic guests, and they were able to make a couple special pasta dishes for those guests, which made me feel good we could accommodate their needs.
