Let us premise our review by saying that we have a vast insight into many venues around the area because of our professions in the wedding industry. When the time came, it was an immediate no brainer where we would host our own special day, Villa Venezia! We will try... Read More our best to keep this short even though we could write an endless amount singing the praises of Franco Fidanza and his staff… There are a few key elements that set this venue in its own lane: their food, the interior of the building, the grounds, their impeccable attention to detail, the family like bond between the management and staff and the professionalism and high quality service that was extended to our guests. Did we mention the food?! It’s been two weeks and we still have guests begging us to just have a simple back yard party as long as Villa Venezia can cater it!! We personally eat wedding dinners almost every weekend of wedding season and we’ve never come across a spread that is as abundant or as high quality as Franco’s. The cocktail hour alone could have sufficed for the entire night! We had a few dietary restrictions and the chef, Mike made certain to go above and beyond our expectations making sure every single thing that was sent out of his kitchen was perfection. If someone told us that a wedding venue could be crisp, clean, and modern - yet homey and welcoming, we wouldn’t believe them until we walked into Villa Venezia. It is elegant and timeless. With the rooms they have to offer, there are so many choices on what you could do with that space no matter what you envision on your wedding day. Same with the grounds! You can have your ceremony on site either on their brand new stone patio or under their romantic Willow Tree. Everything is so well manicured and no matter what time of year it is they always have different flowers bloomed! You’re minutes from huge hotels and the local major highways yet you feel tucked away in your own private world. Now Madison… She is the best – now let us repeat – THE BEST Maitre D’ imaginable. She is so sweet, courteous, and just lovely. Her attention to every detail was amazing to say the least. With our experience, you can imagine how neurotic we were with the planning process. Madison never missed a beat. Even though it’s a big plus that they only have one wedding going on per day, she made it feel like we were the only wedding that entire year. Everything was centered around us and what we envisioned for our fairy tale wedding. No matter how many times we emailed, she would respond within hours and would be so eager to help us. No other venue offers the same intimate interactions we experienced at Villa Venezia. The day of our wedding literally EVERYTHING was perfect.. every single detail. If anything happened to go wrong that day, we couldn’t even tell you because we didn’t notice and we knew that the staff had it covered. To Franco, Madison, and each and every staff member: Thank you for making our dreams come true!!! And thank you so much for treating our family and friends like guests in your own home. Xoxo Mr. & Mrs. Bernstein

During the planning process we had so many questions and ideas about our wedding day. Franco and his staff answered our questions and did everything possible to make our day special. They were so flexible and so easy to work with! The day of our wedding at Villa Venezia went off without a hitch. When we saw the ceremony, cocktail, and reception areas we were overwhelmed with how awesome everything looked. We tried to think of every detail and the venue was the main component. The food was never ending and so good! We had so many options to choose from in order to build the perfect menu for both the cocktail hour and reception. Each dish tasted better than the next. Throughout the entire night Franco, Martina, and Alex were asking if there was anything we needed in addition to insuring that our guests were enjoying themselves. Our guests are still texting, emailing, and calling us saying that they have never been to a wedding like ours. The beautiful venue, spectacular service, delicious food, and the owner’s and staff’s flexibility to add all of our personal touches led to the wedding event that we had always dreamed of!! Thank you Villa Venezia for a day that we will always remember!

The tasting was out of this world and the food was absolutely incredible, prior to our wedding people who had been were raving about the food. The cocktail hour had so many stations and choices for everyone (and setup and presentation was AWESOME) and buffet style dinner was also perfect with a large variety and super delicious. Also they recommended the bakery we used Pastry Garden which everyone raved about the cake as well, and cakes from there and a few other bakeries were included in the package which was fantastic.
