Where do I begin. I worked with Vinny from the very start and I couldn’t be happier. My day was WONDERFUL! Me and my DH opted to take some photos before the ceremony at their lakefront property. I’m so glad we did. What a blast. My bridal party had fun, we had fun and they even had cold water and beer for us. My ceremony was in front of the new waterfall, it was something out of a Hollywood movie. I couldn’t have asked for better weather too. Everyone was comfortable; I was in aw walking down the aisle. They arranged to let me and my DH see the cocktail room ahead of time in private, (being that we would miss all of it taking pictures). Talk about feeling like a princess. Me and my DH were the only 2 people in the room. We shared a glass of wine a little cheese, it was just sooooo romantic and an unexpected private time that was very welcomed. The main event. When I walked into my room I was amazed! Let me tell you I had a lot of stuff and I am very particular. My bridal attendant Billy Jo had my vases, cameras, candles, rose petals, etc perfectly displayed just like I asked. (I had to pay a little x-tra for her to come in early & worth every penny!)There was beautiful back lighting behind the dais to match my colors. There was just so much food and all so delicious. I just came back this past weekend from my honeymoon and my mom told me the calls are still coming in raving about the food and presentation. One of my favorite things was the Champagne March they did in the very beginning after I was announced and then seated. OMG I was so impressed and felt so special; as if they were putting on show (actually it was a show). After main course came out, they came around with seconds, offering all the guests anything they wanted to try. I’ve never been anywhere else that does that. My cake was beautiful and when they rolled out the chocolate fountain my quests went crazy. My favorite was the homemade zeppoles. My grandmother said she hadn’t tasted a zeppole like that since her grandmother used to make them. She was in tears, reliving a wonderful memory. I honestly can’t say enough about The Villa Barone Hilltop Manor, We really feel like we are part of another family. That is the way they make you feel and the way they treat you.

I fell in love with the Villa Barone as soon as I walked into it. It was by far the most beautiful venue we looked at. The inside is all newly renovated and it looks absolutely gorgeous and tastefully done. We dealt with Nicky, who was absolutely wonderful. He was so helpful and professional and made the whole wedding planning process less stressful. The food delicious and the service is impeccable!! Some guests thought that our cocktail hour was the dinner – there was so much food! After the main course, the servers came around with platters of food and offered our guests 2nd entrees!! My husband and I chose to do the venetian hour… it was absolutely gorgeous with a huge variety of desserts – all amazing. Our guests are still raving about how perfect everything was. they also have a lake-front property for you to take pictures 10 minutes down the road. My husband I did our ‘first look’ down there before the ceremony and our pictures came out absolutely gorgeous. If you’re looking for a beautifully updated venue with great service and good food – this is the place!!
I just want to start off by saying how amazing this venue is. Every last part of the Villa Barone from the decor, to the food , staff, is impeccable. I had heard such amazing things about this venue and when I booked my wedding there I was so happy. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that the Villa Barone could outdo my expectations. Every detail of my wedding was exactly what I wanted. It is not a week later and I have had most of my guests reach out to me to tell me how fantastic the wedding was and that they have never been to such a nice place with great service and food. They truly work with the bride to make you feel so comfortable and enjoy the experience. I truly cannot say enough about this place except I wish I was getting married again just to have it there again! I would recommend this venue to anyone there really are no words to express my gratitude and appreciation for everyone at the Villa Barone!
My husband and I are overjoyed by the service we received at the Villa Barone. The staff was always attentive, kind, and welcoming. The food was absolutely amazing and the outside areas are breathtaking.
They treated us like royalty from day 1 and the process was as smooth as silk. Very professional, accomodating and make sure that your vision comes to life on your day. Our Maitre D’ Dominick and our attendant Alexa were hands down the best we could have asked for. No detail was left out and our every wish was taken care of. Definitely highly recommend. Our ceremony was in their outside area with the new waterfall feature and it was incredibly picturesque….Loved everything about Villa Barone! A bonus is that they have a lakehouse about 1 mile away that is available to you for pictures at no additional cost!

I cannot say enough good things about the Villa Barone. The staff made my wedding reception something I thought I could only dream of. The food was amazing, the waitstaff was above and beyond, and Dominick, our maitre ‘d was the definition of a professional. He was so kind and helpful to me and my husband- meeting our every need. The Villa exceeded all of our expectations that night, anyone who chooses them for their wedding, or for any event will be in for a wonderful time.
