Much of the charm of Salvatore’s, one of the best Chicago wedding venues, is derived from its idyllic location, a beautiful tree-lined street in one of Chicago’s most historic neighborhoods, Lincoln Park. As the seasons change, so does the setting, lush and green during the spring and summer months, awash in the glorious colors of changing leaves during fall, and covered in a blanket of pristine snow in the winter months. Salvatore’s is only minutes away from the heart of Chicago’s business and shopping district and is easily reached from all major highways.
As with many historic neighborhoods, Lincoln Park has special parking restrictions and guidelines. Salvatore’s has made special arrangements for all of your guests’ cars.
Salvatore’s offers valet parking for day and night functions.
There are several enclosed, public parking lots that can easily accommodate cars for any size event within walking distance.
“I cannot say enough how amazing from start to finish our experience was with Salvatore's in hosting our wedding reception! Marco, Renata, and all of the serving staff were incredible off the bat. We hosted a 120 person reception on December 10th, 2022 - our cocktail hour start at 5PM and went to 6PM, we had 4 passed appetizers (initially I was worried this wouldn't be enough and that we needed an app "table" of sorts) but it was plentiful. The servers were constantly coming around offering up different plates and they were great. Starting off the cocktail hour I had a little hair malfunction that kept me up and the staff were so kind as to stop by me first to provide a bite before heading out to serve the guests - so thoughtful! The bar was never crowded and you had no issue getting a drink with this size of party and staff provided. Dinner was served promptly and piping-hot, family style per their suggestion. I received so so so many compliments on the food afterward and on the choice to go family style! It really encourages people to talk to one another at the table as they pass around the plates. I was a bit worried having a bunch of former D1 athletes that they wouldn't be fed enough but there was much to go around and more than enough to satiate the booze that followed. The tiramisu was an awesome dessert option for me as I am not a big wedding-cake person. We also had a few of Salvatore's preferred vendors as well - Sholeh Munion coordinated and Okyne Media Lab provided a pianist/saxophone duo for cocktail hour and a DJ. Remarkable vendors to work with and obviously Salvatore's chose wisely when they included them as preferred! After the dancing and drinking had finished, we packed up and headed down the street to top off our night with our younger friends as Gaslight Village (2 minute walk down the corner). The area is super convenient to host a reception - our room block was at The Drake and people had no problem at all taking ubers/lyfts from the reception to the hotel. 1000000/10 overall experience, I would pick them over and over again given the chance!” (read more) Paige in September 2021
