At Salvatore’s Ristorante we love helping brides and grooms create their dream wedding a reality. From the engagement to the wedding reception and beyond, we are with you every step of the way. We have a beautiful location for a wedding in Chicago. At Salvatore’s we have two wedding planners that have coordinated 1000s of weddings, who have given 1000s of newlyweds the perfect start to the next chapter in their life. We pride ourselves on smiles and tears of joy. Here is some feedback we have received from our fabulous brides, grooms, guests, and others:
“I just had my wedding reception at Salvatore’s a few weeks ago and I can not say enough about the experience.
Working with Suzi and Amra over the year I was engaged was so easy and they were so informative and accommodating. They were lovely and understanding and patient with my every question.
Salvatore’s has such an old world charm and was just GORGEOUS on our wedding night. Our guests have not stopped commenting on how classy and beautiful the venue was and the food was great too!
In a city like Chicago you have a million choices on where to host your reception. However, if you are looking for classic and elegant Lincoln Park for your city wedding, Salvatore’s is the place for you!“

“I had my wedding reception here on December 1, 2012, and I can honestly say that it was the day of my dreams! Salvatore’s was very helpful throughout the process; Suzi and Amra were a pleasure to work with and helped to answer all of my questions (and there were many) in a very timely manner. For a Chicago venue, a reception at Salvatore’s is very reasonably priced, and it was great to know that I didn’t have to worry about a caterer, tables, chairs, linens, etc. – it really is a one stop shop. I had so many people remark to me how great the reception was, how much fun they had, and how unique and “Chicago” the venue was. Not to mention – the food was absolutely out of this world!“

“We held our wedding and reception here last weekend, and, in a word, it was wonderful. From start to finish, Suzi, Amra and the rest of the Salvatore’s team ensured the planning was painless and drama-free. They accommodated all our needs from flexibility around scheduling a rehearsal to leaving our crap there after the event to pick up two days later, which they had boxed up and ready to go.
They have weddings and receptions down to a science there (meaning, you really don’t have to worry about a thing in regards to the venue and the flow of the overall evening), but don’t worry that it will feel like a cookie-cutter event. It truly felt classy and customized. And they were always up-front with costs — no surprises.
Aside from all that, the place is magical — a perfect blend of vintage charm and classy Chicago. Oh yeah, and the food is also fabulous.

“I just booked my wedding for October 28, 2011 at Salvatores and I felt compelled to write a review even before the wedding has taken place! Amra, the event coordinator, is a doll and is so warm and friendly. She has been so prompt with all of her responses and has really made me feel “at home” at Salvatore’s. My fiance and I stopped by to have dinner one night when we were in the early stages of planning and after he stuffed himself with pasta and veal, he was whipping out his credit card just to save a date there! The atmosphere is very romantic and intimate. The food is excellent, the staff is wonderful and I am really looking forward to having all my friends and family together at Salvatores! Bravo Amra and Salvatores!“

“My daughter’s wedding reception was here in early June and was a delight and joy from start to finish! The space is warm, cozy, romantic, beautiful, and unique. The food was so delicious that as I walked from table to table I noticed every plate was completely clean. The portions are generous, the ingredients fresh, and everything is cooked to perfection. I have been to many a beautiful wedding with mediocre food and am so proud of the food our guests enjoyed. They also offered several choices so our guests were able to choose from chicken, veal marsala, salmon, and a vegetarian option. The wait staff is quick, professional, and pleasant. Amra was absolutely wonderful to work with and provided skillful guidance throughout the process. She was always quick to respond and had excellent recommendations for vendors from flowers to photography. She has done so many weddings and had lots of great ideas. I credit her with making this such a positive experience.
We had been to a wedding reception here previously and also had talked to 2 other brides about their experience and everyone says the same thing…it’s the best! My daughter’s and son-in-law’s friends were mainly from out of town and were in awe of the setting which has a uniquely Chicago flavor. There are several rooms including a charming patio. The wooden dance floor in the bar area is spacious, the acoustics wonderful. The candlelight effect in the dining area is incomparable! We looked at over 30 venues in 2 states and nothing compared with all that Salvatore’s has to offer. One of the guests likened it to a ‘fairy tale wedding’ and everyone has had glowing things to say.
We were beyond thrilled with Salvatore’s and will savor the memories for years to come.“
