“Salvatore’s is by far one of the best wedding venues in Chicago. My husband and I fell in love with the vintage and intimate atmosphere as soon as we layed eyes on this venue when we were searching for places in Chicago. We were planning the wedding from Houston and Suzi and Amanda made this process so easy. They were always willing to communicate with me and answered all my questions promptly down to the final days. The day of the wedding exceeding all of our expectations. Amanda and her crew helped set up all my decor, kept me up to date on everything without stressing me out, and made sure that my new husband and I were well taken care of the entire day. She even made our plates for us so we could enjoy the fantastic food. The brunch was amazing. The best French toast my husband and I have ever had! At the end of the wedding, she made sure all of our things were packed up! If anything went wrong, I didn’t know about it. The day was absolutely perfect! If you are looking for a wedding venue, please. Check out Salvatore’s. You will not be disappointed. Best day ever !!”
“I had my wedding this past August at Salvatore’s and it was perfect. You know when people say, “Something always goes wrong on your big day and to not let it get to you.” Well I can honestly say that NOTHING went wrong! The venue itself is beautiful and completely fit the romantic look I was going for. I loved that there were different areas for guest to party in. I wasn’t interested in a banquet hall wedding where everyone is just in one large room so if you’re looking for something different this is definitely the place. The food was amazing, especially the baked salmon and tiramisu (the best I’ve ever had!). We opted out of serving wedding cake and instead served tiramisu to our guests and people raved it. Suzi and Amanda are a pleasure to work with and handled all my requests. When researching venues it was important that the coordinators where there to help and we didn’t need to hire an additional wedding/ event planner. They helped choose and ordered the linens, they set up all our extra decorations and even worked with me on a signature drink. Plus, they have an amazing vendor list, I used their recommended DJ and florist, which made my entire wedding planning a breeze! All in all, this place is a Chicago gem! I can definitely see myself planning other events here. (they do anniversary dinners, birthday parties, etc…)”
“My husband and I had our wedding (ceremony and reception) recently at Salvatore’s and it was phenomenal! The venue is rustic, romantic, and very elegant. The wedding night went very smoothly and everything was perfect. Suzi and Amanda are very responsive to emails and they are very helpful and detail-oriented. Even when I had extremely specific questions, they always answered them and were giving great suggestions throughout the process as well.
The food was the main reason my husband and I chose this venue. The food is AMAZING! We had four dinner options and all four were delicious. I highly recommend the veal tortellini and filet mignon as dinner options. The cocktail hour food was equally delicious and the bartenders and waiters were all wonderful. We decided on the tiramisu rather than having a traditional wedding cake and we do not regret it. The tiramisu is amazing. They have great wedding packages that include the venue, food, and liquor (top shelf) which makes the planning process much easier as well!
The dance floor is in a separate room, but still open to the tables where the guests are seated which is great for people who want to dance all night. There is also a nice outdoor garden area for guests which is adjacent to the bar and available during the wedding as well.
The location is amazing and it is in such a romantic neighborhood in Lincoln Park. Also, we highly recommend getting a pianist for the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour because they have a grand piano in the entryway and it just made the night that much more special!
We are very satisfied with our experience!”
“We wanted a wedding venue in the city that was full service and didn’t require us to find our own caterer and service staff. We found Salvatore’s after looking at several other restaurants and hotels and were so impressed with how much was included in our per person package for the price. We had also read some great reviews, and had a friend who got married here several years ago and spoke very highly of the experience. And we were not disappointed! Our wedding day could not have gone any better! We received so many compliments on the venue, the food, and the service. There were tons of passed appetizers during cocktail hour, and everyone was very impressed with dinner – we were even told by several people that the steak at our wedding was the best steak they’d had at any wedding ever. Amanda & Suzi were amazing during the planning process, answering all of my questions quickly. The day of, I knew everything would be taken care of because they were so organized. Amanda even helped to bustle my dress at least 10 times during the reception. I cannot recommend this venue enough. It was beautiful, so easy to deal with, and a great value for such a prime city location!”
“Salvatore’s was the PERFECT place for my wedding! All of the staff, in particular the event coordinators suzi and Amanda, were terrific. On the day of the wedding all of our needs were met, the service was exceptional, and the food was Devine. The space looks incredible and theroom flip was quick and painless. Suzi and Amanda were always one step ahead of everything and willing to help with just about everything! Suzi was even the one to busses my dress. I knew I was in good hands from the beginning. They were always accessible and would return emails within days of not hours. They made the planning process easy and painless. I would recommend this venue to anyone wanting an amazing Chicago wedding!!!!”
