I had my wedding at villa cipressi in early October. I planned my whole wedding using tripadvisor and never having been there I was quite anxious reading some of the reviews.... Once I got there I was relieved! The place is amazing, the staff sooo nice, and restaurant delicious.
Rooms: Allot of the wedding party stayed at the hotel myself included. Our rooms all had views that were amazing; rooms were very clean, and huge! The bathrooms not fancy but were clean, new appliances, and nice hot water! For the wedding night we changed rooms to the Manzoni suite also amazing.
Food: Amazing food, make reservations for the restaurant it can get full. Outdoor view is beautiful. Breakfast that is included is very typical continental breakfast... bread, coffee, cereal. They did have hard boiled eggs.
Staff: Amazing, very accommodating.
Wedding Day: Everything went very well and the ballroom was very pretty, food amazing. I had read the reviews about music being a problem in the past ... My only criticism is I had a DJ come to play music during dinner and since he was set up in another room and he was not allowed to play until dinner was over. Mind you dinner was very long there are many courses which is not a bad thing but when there is no music it seems quite longgg. We had to use an iPod to play during dinner even though the DJ was being paid and waiting in the second room. So I wasted my money to have him there early. When the dessert was put out the DJ was allowed to play so he only played for end of the night. They put many tasty desserts out but took them away so fast I was not able to sample anything. Davide did let us play music alittle longer than expected which was much appreciated. All and all I had a great time and would definitely recommend this as a wedding venue! Maybe just use and IPod instead of hiring a DJ.
