When there's a venue as gorgeous as Venuti's, one whould also expect professalism in it's very fiber. ONLY sign a contract if Venuti lists the following: You will never have any dealings with the obnoxious male relative who wears the ponytail (not Ray who is not a relative, is a very hard worker and an asset to Venuti); the person who you make all arangements through will be there from the set up to the end of the event, whereby avoiding dealing with others who act as though the detailed arrangements made are non-existent; the food you ate for the taste test will also be the food served for the event and same quality and quantity, not a forth of it; the wait staff will not roll up and toss all the table favors and programs before your alloted time is up, etc. BE VERY SPECIFIC IN THE CONTRACT OR DO NOT SIGN IT. After the event, Venuti's will not respond to your e-mail nor the survey they send out once you've returned it.
This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
