Everything was amazing and beautiful! The staff was great and the place is beautiful! I highly recommend it
Beautiful venue. A great place for a smaller wedding. Food was delicious!
Had our wedding here! Could not have asked for a better place or better people to work with (Tina is amazing). The day was truly memorable and magical. A real Milwaukee gem
Gorgeous place for a wedding! Always enjoy attending an event there. The staff is fabulous and the venue itself is breathtaking
We chose Villa Filomena because it was a unique venue in a great location. Tina and staff did a great job setting up the room and it looked amazing when we walked in. It was so nice to not have to worry about anything on the day of - Lizzie executed everything perfectly and we were able to just enjoy the reception. The only downside is that you have to end the reception by 11pm and it all went by way too quickly. More...
Beautiful hall for a wedding. Great bar service, nice outside area. It was excellent.
A very elegant, Mansion - style place to have a small gathering, wedding or party. We enjoyed ourselves.
We had our wedding here, beautiful venue!
Such a beautiful venue, wonderful customer/client service!!!

I think tina is an outstanding coordinator for your parties along with her mother they can handle anything.
Great staff and atmosphere! All our guests commented on the best kept secret.
My daughter and son in law had their wedding reception here. It was fantastic. The staff was very helpful. The catering was excellent. All had a great time.
My husband and I had our wedding at Villa Filomena this past May and it was everything that I could have ever wanted. The venue is gorgeous with historic details and a warm, inviting atmosphere. It was perfect for our retro inspired theme. More...
Beautiful place for a wedding. They were very accommodating and even helped us to figure out how to do an outdoor wedding with ~200 guests. It was perfect!
We have performed many shows at the Villa Filomena. The venue is beautiful and in a great location in downtown Milwaukee. And the service is superlative. The Sanfilippo family could not be nicer. I recommend the VF to anyone who wants a memorable event in a gorgeous setting. More...
This venue is stunning. It was my all-in-one...the site for our first look, our wedding photos, our ceremony site, our reception...
They allowed us to bring in any caterer of our choosing and worked with me when I brought in a giant chest freezer of Leon’s custard for our dessert. I worked with Tina S. What I appreciated most about her is that she cared A LOT about how my night as the Bride went. She handled things with grace and power and I never even knew that I had an unruly guest until after the wedding was over because she was so on top of everything. She set up my decorations before hand so that i didn’t have to worry about it and thought of details that never would have even crossed my mind. She was quick and to the point...which I appreciated. She was accommodating of my needs and wants but was also able to help me fill in the blanks when i either didn’t care or couldn’t make a decision.
I can’t say enough about the Villa Filomena. If you want a beautiful MKE wedding...check this place out! It’s hidden in plain site! More...
Great venue for any large gathering or conference.
Good setting for a small wedding

We were here as wedding photographers and videographers. A beautiful venue!
My wife and I got married here 10/7/17. Tina was very helpful throughout the process and was very methodical about the process that she has in place. The venue is beautiful and had everything that we needed for a great day (live bands sound awesome here, the acoustics are great). Tina - on the day of our wedding - was incredibly heartfelt and took care of most everything for us. Truly impressed. I would recommend villa to anyone looking for a beautiful, old and unique venue in the downtown area. More...
Good place for a reception or party.
Villa Filomena was a wonderful venue location! Tina, their event coordinator, did a great job managing the chaos of 2 large families and a guest list of about 175. The venue didn't need much decor -- it's historic and beautiful just the way it is. We got to work with whatever officiant, caterer, and florist we wanted which was nice and helped us stick to a budget. More...
We had our wedding at The Villa Filomena in Milwaukee and had a great experience. We loved working with Tina and her family from beginning to end. We received so many complements about our unique venue. I highly suggest having our wedding reception at The Villa Filomena! More...
The Villa Filomena was an amazing place to have our wedding and reception! The place looked so beautiful and the staff was so nice. Tina did a great job of keeping everything organized and was wonderful to work with. It is a very neat place to have a wedding. I highly recommend this venue to everyone! More...
Awesome place!! So unique!! Offers bar service.
They did a great job of setting up the courtyard and the décor on the inside for the reception. There was plenty of rooms for the wedding party to go and have privacy before and after the ceremony. The bartenders were very friendly and knew how to keep the guests responsible. More...
Tina the onsite coordinator was a pleasure to work with. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, and we had nothing but compliments from our guests. It was nice having a band inside and then having the outdoor courtyard available for our guests to cool off and hang out. Though this is not the cheapest of venues, you pay for what you get and we were extremely satisfied with how everything turned out. I HIGHLY recommend the Villa Filomena. More...
I was there for a wedding. The building is cool and in fair condition. It could use some updating.
I cannot even begin to thank Erin, Tina and the entire staff at the Villa Filomena for their hard work. Our wedding day would not have been nearly as special without their responsiveness, attention to detail, and vendor suggestions. We went with each and every vendor they recommended from our DJ to our photographer and could not have been more pleased. Planning a wedding from out of state was unbelievably stressful but Erin was willing to Facetime an entire venue tour and Tina put up with about 5,000 frantic emails and put me at ease each time. On top of the planning, on the day of our wedding everyone was talking about how amazing Erin was to work with. There were points in the night where she was bussing tables with the catering staff just to ensure everything would continue to go smoothly. She kept everything flowing including having to distract my energetic 2 year old niece and 4 year old nephew so that I could walk down the aisle. Despite the rain, the staff put together an amazing ceremony inside that still met all of our expectations and they beautifully laid out all the little details we brought so that we didn't have to worry about anything when we arrived. Our day was everything we could have ever imagined because of the Villa and I would highly recommend the gorgeous space and even more incredible staff for anyone's special event. More...
Villa was an ideal space to be married. The location is a secrect hidden gem in Downtown Milwaukee.
Tina really knows how to organize an event and really stepped up and took control when our officiant had an emergency.
The staff was friendly and on top of their work.
I can say with certainty that Villa is the perdect place for a stunning intimate event. More...
The Villa is the perfect destination for a wedding if you are looking for a beautiful and unique destination in Milwaukee. We received so many compliments about the venue. Janice, John and Tina are great to work with. They offer great advice and help to put your mind at ease. It was great having them there the day of just to reassure you. More...
I had the MOST AMAZING Bridal Shower for my sister back in January. We had a quick turn around time for booking this and Tina went above and beyond her duties to make this event outstanding. I worked with a wedding planner, Events to a T, and Tina worked with all of us to accommodate any requests we had. The mansion is so unique and you can definitely add the decor you want to give this venue the wow factor. The chandeliers are my fave. They also have a bridal room upstairs that hasn't been over modernly remodeled. It has that victorian touch which is hard to come by. Great for photo opps. I was also to a wedding here recently and I was blown away with how the bride transformed the space. The outdoor garden is perfect for an intimate wedding ceremony. Where else could you have that in the middle of downtown Milwaukee! Make this a definite must on your list of places to check out. More...
This venue is gorgeous and unique!
Had both my wedding and reception at the Villa and it truely is a beautiful space. The lighting is what makes it. You cannot go wrong with the warm glow of crystal chandeliers dimmed low. I really started to understand at the end of the night what a difficult job Tina has and I have to say her hard work was truly apprieciated. She has the right personality for her job and she makes things run smoothly. I would definitly recommend The Villa to every person I talk with about wedding venues. More...
Tina and the staff of the Villa Filomena were amazing. The venue is a hidden gem in the downtown area. We had a blast!
We had both our wedding and reception here and it was fabulous, to say the least! We had the wedding, about 120 people, on the patio, visiting/guestbook area in the parlor and the reception in the ballroom. Our bridal party got the second floor to ourselves to get dressed and ready for the day. The exterior and interior are gorgeous and unique (awesome wedding photos), Tina was a sweetheart to work with and the price was surprisingly affordable. I highly recommend The Villa for any event :) It was unforgettable. More...
This is a lovely, historic event space (in a mansion!) in a great area of Milwaukee.I was here as a guest and reader in a friend's wedding, so I can only review it from that point of view.Location wise, it can't really be beat. You're blocks from the lake, near several hotels and plenty else to do (art museum, restaurants, festivals, etc.) and the neighborhood itself is green and vibrant.I helped set up before the rehearsal Friday evening, and I could see even then that it was going to be lovely. The front is all stone and columns and greenery, and right inside the front doors you find a carpeted hallway with bathrooms and an open area that looks into the ballroom. We helped set up the tables and there was a coordinator directing everyone, making sure everything was in order so our bride would not be frazzled. The ballroom space has two bar areas, a stage, and a large open floor where the tables and dance floor were set up. There are huge, beautiful chandeliers all over the ceiling.Adjacent to both the ballroom and front of the building was a smallish walled courtyard overflowing with greenery. This was where the actual ceremony was held, and it felt private without being too removed. It worked well for an evening ceremony although only the front half or so was shaded, though thankfully the sun was not directly in anyone's eyes.Throughout the night, both during the rehearsal and the actual wedding and reception, the Villa Filomena staff did a wonderful job of being helpful, friendly and generally great without seeming to impose at all. The food was absolutely delicious and everything went off without (it seemed) a hitch. Given the great experience my newlywed friend had, I'd say Villa Filomena is a fantastic event space with a great staff. More...
