  • My husband and I had our wedding at Salvatore’s on May 18, 2019. It’s a hidden gem in Lincoln Park and we are so happy we stumbled upon it! The venue is classic and elegant. It fit our 140 guests perfectly. The price is just incredible for a downtown Chicago wedding. We loved that we paid one price for everything and didn’t have to worry about upgrading so many details because everything that comes with Salvatore’s is top notch. Suzi and Lauran were amazing to work with! From the very beginning they are so helpful with every little detail and they truly know their stuff. Our favorite part by far was the food! My favorite part of wedding planning was easily the tasting. We did family style with caesar salad, two pastas and one chicken dish. Our guests still haven’t stopped talking about how delicious all of the food was and they were so happy they got to try a little bit of everything. I was so happy to hear that we got a wedding cake or tiramisu included too, but the tiramisu... Read more

  • Would highly recommend! We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Salvatore’s and had such a great experience. The venue comes with two wedding planners that help answer all of your questions (and we asked a lot!). They were very patient and knowledgeable during the whole planning process, thank you Suzi and Lauran! Our guests could not stop raving about the food, I kid you not, numerous people said it was “the best food they’ve ever had a wedding”. The filet and tortellini were crowd favorites for sure. Also received a lot of compliments on the staff, who went above and beyond during dinner and great bartenders as well. Luckily, we had nice weather so many people got to utilize the nice patio space out back. Overall, this was an amazing venue with professional staff and service.

  • Salvatore’s was amazing! I fell in love with Salvatore’s the moment I walked inside. I loved the location and the beauty of the venue. I also loved the atmosphere and feel of the venue. Suzi and Lauran were wonderful to work with. They were responsive and helpful. They also were meticulous and made sure to get all of the details right. I wouldn’t have been able to have gotten through my day without them. And then there was the food. It was fantastic and so good. My favorite was the vodka pasta, but everything was delicious. I received numerous compliments on the food and the overall beauty of the venue. I highly recommend Salvatore’s.

  • Picking Salvatore’s as our wedding reception venue was the best decision we made in our wedding planning process, and we couldn’t be happier that we did! Suzi and Lauran were amazing to work with! They had great communication and were always very responsive in any questions we had along the way leading up to the big day. They had great recommendations which helped in making decisions. We felt so comfortable knowing they were on top of everything and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Salvatore’s is absolutely beautiful, and had the romantic, intimate, and elegant look and feel that we wanted. We wanted to get married in Chicago, but loved how Salvatore’s is on a quiet, tree-lined street in Lincoln Park. The staff was outstanding on the day of, and the service was impeccable. One of our favorite parts as well as the guests, was how delicious the food is! The tiramisu is also outstanding, and we highly recommend doing that for the dessert. Their vendor recommendatio...

  • Having our reception at Salvatore’s was one of the best decisions we made in our entire planning process! My husband and I were in an unusual situation, we live in TX but got married in Chicago. We had my parents go and view the space, and they fell in love instantly. They face timed us and we knew that was it, so they signed before we even saw it in person! The layout of the space is perfectly different from most wedding venues you’ll find. Having the dance floor in a different room from the tables provided nice breaks for some of our older guests, or even those who just wanted a moment to step away from the party. The outdoor space is a nice addition to the already wonderful venue. The location is great, Lincoln Park is a fabulous place to get married- especially in the fall when the streets outside are STUNNING. Plus the valet parking made it extremely easy for our guests who drove. Lauran and Suzi are wonderful to work with from the start. They always answered my (nume... Read more

  • My husband and I held our wedding reception at Salvatore's this fall and I am still getting compliments about how fabulous our wedding was. It is an absolutely beautiful venue, with vintage charm that you really can't find anywhere else in the city. The coordinators at the venue, Suzi and Lauran were extremely professional, responsive, patient and so fun to work with. They really made sure they understood our vision and helped us every step of the way. I must have sent them 100 emails during the planning process and everything was always answered quickly. The food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, every dish was perfect and our guests raved about it all night - especially the vodka pasta and the tiramisu. I wish I could go back and eat there right now. The tasting was so fun - make sure you come hungry! The drinks and the service were outstanding - they were all so professional kind to all 200 of our guests. People were drinking martini's, manhattans and all kinds of specialty drinks (which are... Read more

  • I am so happy with our decision to get married at Salvatores! Suzi and Lauran were SO patient with my (what felt like ) endless questions and answered everything so well! I didn't have a wedding planner and have never been involved in planning a wedding, so that was just so helpful, personally. Further, they helped lead the rehearsal (which would be a disaster without them) and made everything SO smooth on the actual day!! In between the ceremony and reception, the space was absolutely transformed and just beautiful. They used my decorations in ways that looked better than I had originally planned. Other than how wonderful and helpful they were, the space itself is amazing. Its beautiful, classic, and intimate; exactly the vibe I was hoping for for my wedding. Honestly, once I saw the website, I stopped looking at other venues. Third, of course, I have to comment on the price. The pricing was very clear from the first time we met. There were no surprises at the end or anything ... Read more

  • Wedding planning is stressful! Salvatore's takes a huge chunk of planning stress off your shoulders. This venue is beautiful! Stunning, old-world Italian feel to the space. Plenty of room for our 145 guests to enjoy dinner and dancing. The food is top-notch! The staff is incredible. Suzi & Lauran are incredible and easy to work with. They met with us several times and ensured us we would be pleased. Be sure to put this on your list of venues to explore and book them for your event. You will not be disappointed!

  • Our decision to choose Salvatore’s as our wedding location was the best decision we have made ( aside from saying “I do!” of course). From beginning to end, Lauran and Suzi were very helpful in the planning process. They took the time to field our emails, phone calls and in person meetings to ensure we felt comfortable. On the day of they were instrumental in making sure the day went smoothly. In addition to the amazing staff, Salvatore’s itself was a dream venue. After doing extensive research it because clear for the value they were providing, the price was unbeatable. We received amazing reviews from our guests who raved about the food and there was never a line to get the bar. I cannot imagine a better place to get married and I highly recommend to any couple looking in Chicago!

  • We were able to plan our entire wedding start to finish in under 6 months thanks to Salvatore's. This historic venue is absolutely gorgeous and the service from their team was amazing. Suzi and Lauran made the entire planning process unbelievably easy and the day of was seamless and perfect. We knew planning a wedding in less than 6 months and without a planner was going to be crazy, but it really wasn't with Salvatore's. They are seasoned veterans in the wedding world with so much great advice to help you create the best day. And they are also totally open to accommodating whatever your vision is! I cannot recommend this venue enough. On top of the amazing service and beautiful venue, the food was incredible and the value is unbeatable in Chicago, especially Lincoln Park. Do yourself a favor and book here. My husband and I actually got to enjoy our wedding day because every single detail was managed perfectly by the Salvatore's team. They created a perfect day for us and our guests. W... Read more

  • ​Choosing Salvatore's for our July wedding was by far the best decision we made- This place is incredible- classic and elegant, but also intimate and inviting. The rooms are seriously beautiful on their own, but come alive when you add your own personal touches. The staff- There are honestly no words for amazing ​Suzi and Lauran ​were in the lead up and execution of our wedding​. They went above and beyond and thanks to them our ​wedding was everything we wanted; the set up was perfect, and it was so stress free and seamless - they are wonderful! ​The entire staff has such a reassuring presence, ​they have​ everything organized to perfection, and just did a remarkable​ job.​ The best part of this venue is that I didn't have to worry. I trusted their judgment on literally everything- Me not being a planner was completely overwhelmed with the details of planning the day- Salvatore's basically took the lead and allowed me to be as involved as much (or as little) as ...

  • My husband and I LOVED having our wedding reception at Salvatore's! Suzi and Lauran are the absolute best. We had some last minute changes come up and they were so responsive and accommodating. We felt 100% certain that everything would run smoothly in their hands. Also, their vendor recommendations were spot-on. Our guests loved Salvatore's, too, and couldn't stop raving about the food (which is incredible - you have to do the tiramisu!), how beautiful the space is, and how seamlessly the whole evening went. We would recommend Salvatore's to everyone!

  • My husband and I had a wedding at Salvatore’s this summer. We highly recommend this venue! Suzi and Lauran were an absolute pleasure to work with - very responsive, patient, organized and helpful. They made the entire planning process easy for us. The venue itself is elegant, romantic and very spacious. There is an option to have dinner and dancing in separate rooms, which we loved as some of our guests could have a conversation while others had fun on the dance floor. There is also a gorgeous patio which is ideal for pictures. The food was absolutely delicious - we chose salmon, steak, chicken and pasta. Each entree was prepared perfectly. We got a lot of compliments on the food. Also, Salvatore’s tiramisu is out of this world! It was a perfect choice for us! Thank you, Suzi and Lauran, for an amazing experience!

  • My husband and I knew that we wanted to get married in the city of Chicago and we are so happy we found Salvatore's! We fell in love with its classic beauty, old school Chicago vibe, and beautiful surroundings (the patio, courtyard, tree-lined street, and beautiful Lincoln Park neighborhood) and it was actually a reasonably-priced option in the city, especially compared to other choices out there. Oh, and all the food was DELICIOUS (get the cheesy tortellini and the tiramisu!), the dance floor was huge, and the service and bartenders were so amazing that none of our 155 guests ever had to wait for a drink (and the drinks, especially our specialty drinks, were delicious and the staff was so accommodating of our requests!). No waiting in lines at Salvatore's! Suzi and Lauran were also awesome to work with! They were incredibly fast responding to emails and never seemed frustrated by all my questions. They were super accommodating with when we could drop off/pick-up our decor, let us v... Read more

  • Salvatore's was the perfect location for our wedding reception. For us, food and dancing were the top priorities, and Salvatore's delivered on both. The food was delicious, and they were very open to making special meals or tweaking recipes per our preferences. Our guests raved about the salmon and that we did family style! And, Salvatore's separate dance floor was the perfect size for our 150 guests who were all big dancers. It was also nice to have the porch and back bar for people who wanted a break from the dance floor.
