What Couples are Saying:

“I cannot say enough good things about Pazzo’s and Fay, the onsite coordinator! Several venues in Chicago required a lot work – bringing in chairs or tables or catering or buying all your own alcohol. While some brides like making those choices, I was planning my Chicago wedding from Boston, so I was looking for a beautiful venue with great food in one. I luckily found it in Pazzo’s – and all for a reasonable price per person. First off, the space itself – wow. The building is located right next to Sears Tower, and for out of town guests, it’s really exciting to be so close to an icon. The room has high 75+ foot ceilings with a gorgeous atrium. This is where we ate dinner. The cocktail hour and dancing happened in the Pazzo’s restaurant (to be near the bar, of course)! After I looked at other hotel/banquet rooms with few windows and saw Pazzo’s unique space, I knew it was “the one.” Fay was so responsive and easy to talk to. She has been working at Pazzo’s for 20+ years, and you can tell she is an expert when it comes to weddings. It was so reassuring to have her throughout the process. She was also very flexible and truly wanted to help you out and make it the best day for you and your guests! I also needed to bring in decor two days prior to the wedding (as opposed to the day before) for logistical reasons, and Fay let me store 220 pumpkins, 11 lanterns, the favors, name tags and more in her office. The food was also top-notch. I have been to 30+ weddings in 5 years, and some weddings have dry or cold food. Not with Pazzo’s! Everything was so tasty and the food came out very quickly. (FYI, I am a salmon eater through and through, but the filet/chicken combination was incredible and a crowd pleaser! We did also have the salmon, and I heard from guests it was also wonderful.) The late night pizza was definitely also appreciated 🙂 They were also very accommodating with allowing us to bring in desserts from a family bakery. They set up the table beautifully. Finally, the bartenders were always moving and no one was ever at the bar waiting long for a drink – which everyone appreciates 🙂 You will not regret having your restaurant at Pazzo’s! (Also, my mom was very insistent we have good food, so we actually ate at the restaurant prior to signing the contract. It’s a great way to sample the filet, chicken, salmon entrees before you put down the deposit!) Thanks, Fay and Pazzo’s!! – Leslie P

 

“My husband and I had our wedding reception at Pazzo’s in July of 2021 after rescheduling the date from July 2020 due to Covid-19. We were drawn to the openness of the venue, the location, the menu and the availability of on-site services. We had worked with Faye, the Catering Manager, who had worked there over 20 years to secure our new date. As we got closer to our wedding, we learned that Faye had retired and there was a new catering manager, Rali. Rali was wonderful and accommodated our requests for additional meetings to review our previous options and finalize our plans. She also made herself readily available by phone and email to answer last minute questions to relay up to date Covid-19 information. We were able to drop off our additional decor/items the day before and discuss the set up with Rali one last time. She worked with our outside vendors to execute our vision exactly like we had planned. With all the wedding craziness, I forgot to give Rali the signature drink recipe. Luckily, her staff was able to figure it out, and it became one of the most requested drinks of the night! Because our wedding was over the holiday weekend, Pazzo’s was very accommodating and let us pick up our items on Tuesday. Rali was very sweet and had carefully packed our items just like how we had brought them. Fortunately, we were able to have our wedding without any restrictions since Chicago was 100% open at that time. We were extremely happy with our wedding, a large part of that is due to Rali and her wonderful team at Pazzo’s. Our guests commented on the food and appreciated Pazzo’s unique setting. My husband and I plan to go back to Pazzo’s to celebrate our anniversaries. We highly recommend Pazzo’s to anyone looking to have their wedding in Chicago. Pazzo’s guidance, suggestions, responsiveness, and positive attitude made wedding planning so much easier.” – Megan G
