My wife and I got married at Villa Cicolina, and I must say that I cannot imagine a more idyllic setting for such an important day. The beauty of this place is truly out of a postcard, as you can see from the myriad of photos on this site, and cannot be understated. However, what truly sets it apart for me is the level of service you receive from the staff and the great food that Chef Mimmo creates every day.
Sayed and Aliya were most gracious hosts, not only in helping us with day trips and restaurant requests (run, don't walk, to Acquachetta), but also patiently dealing with months of annoying wedding planning emails from yours truly. As expected, the day went off a hitch, with the villa's owner even renting me his fantastic vintage Alfa Romeo convertible for the big day. Mimmo's food was amazing and he provided us with a very memorable cooking class later in the week. You can often see him hand rolling every pici for that night's meal, like he did for us as part of our wedding meal. I was perhaps most impressed with Florjan, who works in the restaurant. He went way over and above what we could reasonably expect for service, even coming in at 6 AM long before his shift to make us cappucinos before our flight home.
You never really do know what to expect on your big day, but I can say that my expectations were exceeded by this magical place and its wonderful staff. Francesca and I look forward to visiting with you again soon!
