We knew from the start that we were in good hands

My husband and I recently held our reception at Cefalo's, and it was amazing! Our guests raved about how beautiful and unique the venue is and about how delicious the food was. The venue was also perfect for our live music. We knew from the start that we were in good hands with Len Cefalo - he helped us to focus on the decisions we needed to make and he made great suggestions when we were uncertain. Len was also very gracious to our guests that night, and the staff was professional and friendly. The event was so well-organized that not one problem arose that night. We were able to just enjoy ourselves and have fun with our friends and family without worry.

The food and service were exceptional!

To experience the ambiance of an intimate night club atmosphere or the elegance of a formal elegant dining room select Cefalo's Banquet & Event Center for your next special event. My family selected this convenient location to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with 100 plus family and friends. We were offered both venues (Club room and Dining Room) for our celebration. We had a cocktail hour in the club area, moving to a sit down dinner in the dining room and back to club for celebrating. The owner Len Cefalo and staff went over and above making our evening a night to remember. Not only providing the comfortable and elegant atmosphere, the food and service were exceptional as quoted by each and every guest.

Generous support and assistance

On behalf of the Carlynton Student Government, I would like to thank you for your generous support and assistance with our pasta dinner benefit on March 23rd. The event raised over $10,000 to help classmates whose homes were destroyed in recent fires. The Carlynton family is quick to help its members when in need, and your continued support is always appreciated.

It was the perfect day that we had planned for and hoped for!

We held our wedding reception at Cefalo's on May 3rd, 2014 and we couldn't have been happier! It was the perfect day that we had planned for and hoped for! Len was wonderful and patient with us throughout the planning process, and on our wedding day the team executed perfectly. The venue is unique and beautiful which is exactly what we wanted. We loved that our guests weren't sitting at the same table, in the same room all night long. We've since received many, many compliments on Chef Dean's food, the service, and the overall venue. I would absolutely recommend Cefalo's for your wedding reception!

Thank you Len, Dean, and the whole staff!

First class atmosphere!

Len, you are gifted. From the moment we met, we knew we had to use your expertise. From the beautifully presented and scrumptious food to the first class atmosphere. Our family has very fussy palates, but they all raved about the luscious array of food. The quantity and quality of the beautifully presented Tuscan Chicken, pasta, etc. exceeded our expectations. You graciously opened your doors (closed for remodeling) for our celebration of life for our son, Tim Madeja, and made a difficult time easier. Tim knew quality and he would have enjoyed his meal with a smile on his face. The staff was fantastic.

The food was exquisite and the service was impeccable

You've done it again! The food was exquisite and the service was impeccable. Everywhere I turned there was another delicious appetizer and everyone raved about the dinner. Your talents are limitless, and we so appreciate them and your friendship.

You went over the top with accommodating all of our needs!

On behalf of the entire Clearview FCU staff, I would like to thank you for an outstanding evening! I can't say enough about how satisfied we were with everything you did for our employee appreciation event. You went over the top with accommodating all of our needs, from the delicious food down to the valet service. Working with you and your staff has been a pleasure to say the least.

The service and hospitality were outstanding!

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for a wonderful bridal shower on September 4, 2010. My guests and I had a wonderful time; the food was top notch. We have received many compliments on the location that we have chosen to hold this joyous occasion. The service and hospitality were outstanding. I will certainly recommend your services to all of my family and friends.

A very warm and welcoming atmosphere

Please accept my deepest appreciation for the excellent service provided for our Pastor's Anniversary held on August 9th, 2014. I'll be the first to say we were treated royally, and for that, I am grateful and thankful. The elegance of the dining room and the attentiveness of your staff went beyond my expectations. Their attitude towards others is to be commended.

Your establishment's environment was filled with a very warm and welcoming atmosphere; one most of us will never forget... You all have been very kind and accommodating; there are no words that can express my gratitude. Hopefully not too much time will pass before we can enter into this very special place to celebrate another event in the near future.

Everyone who attended was very impressed!

I just wanted to thank you again for being such a gracious host for our event. Everyone who attended was very impressed by your establishment and the amazing quality of your housemade foods. People are stopping me in the halls to thank me for picking such a wonderful place for our holiday event!

You will be at the top of our list when we consider venues for other events. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

A relaxed and stress-free luncheon

Thank you for all you did for our family and helping us to ease the pain by providing us with a relaxed and stress-free luncheon. It is rare to find people and service like that in today's world. God Bless you all!

Absolutely Perfect!

Words cannot express how thankful we are for the wonderful reception you all provided for our wedding day. It was more than what we had hoped for or imagined. It was absolutely perfect. Many of our guests raved about it and said that was the most fun they'd had. The food was delicious, so much so that we were sad we had forgot the leftovers in the car overnight and couldn't eat them the next day. Many thanks again, from the bottom of our hearts. We will definitely be recommending you to others.

Keep up the excellent work because Aaron and I would love to come back and celebrate our 50th anniversary here.

What a hidden gem!

I just wanted to send you a great big THANK YOU to you and your staff! I absolutely LOVED Cefalo's! What a hidden gem! Where do I start? To be honest, I was nervous about what we could expect since this was scheduled at such a last minute and I had never been to any events at your facility in the past but everything turned much better than I could expect! Your facility suited our event perfectly from the fun atmosphere of the club room to the formal dining area. Dean's food was amazing! Presentation and taste were perfect! Everyone raved about how good the food was and I received nothing but good feedback from our guests. Amy was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was on top of everything and didn't flinch at the many last minute changes / requests that we threw at her. I can't thank you and your staff enough for providing our event with a smooth and enjoyable experience! I have already let my contacts know who they need to come to next time they are looking for a location to hold their event.

Guests raved about the food, service, friendliness and efficiency

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! What an amazing wedding reception you and your team hosted for us; it was perfect!

Thank you for meeting with us, listening to us, and guiding us to be able to have a casually elegant reception, which was our vision all along. Guests raved about the food, the service, the friendliness and efficiency of the team - kudos!

You are a true professional, Len, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with you and your team. I was totally confident and comfortable leaving all of the details in your capable hands & you all executed perfectly :)

I was able to enjoy the party and not worry about a thing

I just wanted to thank you for your part in helping to make my parents' 50th Anniversary a night to remember. My mom and dad had the most wonderful time, as did all of their guests. It was better than I could have imagined! I was able to enjoy the party and not worry about a thing from the moment we arrived on Saturday night. We have received several emails, texts and phone calls over the last few days from people thanking us for suh a great party. They could not say enough about the venue, the delicious food and all of the people that helped make the evening run so perfectly. We received many comments about how the staff at Cefalo's was very patient, attentive and just plain awesome!

Your kindness is greatly appreciated

Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers and for all the delicious food. Your kindness is greatly appreciated. The luncheon was wonderful and mom would have loved it.

More Than We Could Have Imagined!

We would like to thank you all for the wonderful evening we had at Cefalo's for Sam's Bar Mitzvah. The food was spectacular, the service was beyond excellent, and the whole experience was more than we could have imagined. We look forward to our next event with you!

Terrific Staff and Quality Service

I want to thank you for your attention to detail while preparing for our daughter's wedding. Everything was just perfect. We have received so many compliments from our guests. You have one terrific staff that provides such quality service. A special thanks to chef Dean. The appetizers and dinner were fantastic.

Anyone looking for something more than your ordinary hotel wedding should consider Cefalo's. You won't be disappointed!

Best wedding food ever!

Best wedding food ever! We have heard nothing but rave reviews about the food and the atmosphere.

The Food Was FANTASTIC!

Thank you, Cefalo's, for a fabulous rehearsal dinner. The room was arranged perfectly. There was a screen and projector for a slideshow, everyone was well taken care of, and the food was FANTASTIC (the crab cakes were amazing). On such an emotional and exciting night, it was so nice not to have to worry about anything else and to be able to enjoy the moment.

The little things you did to make the night go smoothly made all the difference

On behalf of the members of the Pink Pamper Committee, I would like to once again extend our heartfelt appreciation for all that you and your staff did to make our dinner last night an exceptional evening for us and our guests! The service was impeccable and the food delicious. Additionally, all of the little things you personally did to make the night go smoothly made all the difference.

Every one of us wants to do it again! We may be contacting you soon about a Christmas party! And ReaDonna and I will be making suggestions to our children for their upcoming wedding!

You Have Created a Masterpiece!

Much thanks! We had the wedding I thought I never wanted haha! You have created a masterpiece with your business... beauty, personality and incredible food!!! I don't even need to wish you luck. You hit the big time already. Well deserved I'm sure!

Amazing and Unique

We had my daughter's Baptism party here and everyone loved the place.  The food was amazing and a bit unique, the room was pleasant and relaxing, and the owner and staff were very nice. My wife and I were extremely pleased with everything there, and most guests made comments about how good the food was.

YOU ROCK!

Our sincere thanks to everyone at Cefalo's for their contributions to the "Battle for Beggy - Fighting the Good Fight" that was held there on April 10th. The event raised over $10,000 for the treatment of Mary Beth who is very dear to us all. We could not have done this if Cefalo's did not donate your club, food, sound equipment... and most importantly your time.

YOU ROCK! Thank you from the Battalion!

The wedding reception of her dreams!

Thanks so much for giving my daughter the wedding reception of her dreams! We were all impressed by you and your staff. The food was excellent and even though the wedding party was late, you kept your cool and told us "no worries". I have received so many comments from my guests saying they loved the venue, the food and the way they were treated. I want to personally thank you for treating us with kindness, patience and care. We are so happy and everyone had a fabulous time. We wanted something different and unique and you delivered. Please thank your entire staff for their professionalism throughout the evening.

The perfect wedding reception

Thank you for giving us the perfect wedding reception. You were so patient with me (and my Mom) during the planning stages, reassuring us that we wouldn't have to worry and you would take care of everything and you did! Everyone had a great time and loved that the venue was so different. They also all said the food was amazing! I loved the balcony introductions and that we did the cake cutting and toasts during cocktail hour. We used the group picture for our thank you cards and they look awesome. Thank you again. Every aspect was just wonderful and we had so much fun!

There is something about Cefalo's that makes you relax when you come inside

On behalf of Gilda's Club of Western Pennsylvania board of driectors, staff, volunteers, and members, especially Jay Santa, thank you for providing a wonderful space at Cefalo's for Jay Santa's 2010 Faces Campaign event. Your offer to host Jay's event at Cefalo's is one that is deeply appreciated by everyone associated with Gilda's Club. It was my first opportunity to visit your facility; and to say that I was impressed would be an understatement.

The comfortable atmosphere, the welcoming staff, and your hospitality made it a special evening for all. I felt comfortable from the moment I stepped into the building which is never as easy thing to say when you come to an event alone. There is something about Cefalo's that makes you relax when you come inside.

It was a pleasure to meet you and to enjoy a delicious dinner. The pasta and especially the sauce were awesome. Thank you for providing this wonderful opportunity for Jay, Chris B, and the "Santa Team" to hold a very successful fundraiser for Gilda's Club.

I wanted a unique venue, and I found just what I was looking for!

I knew I wanted a unique venue, and I found just what I was looking for the minute I walked into Cefalo's. The lounge is grand yet comfortable and has a great ambiance with the stained glass windows, pillars, and tall ceilings. The dining room is classic and elegant. Everyone raved about the food, too! It was delicious and the value is fantastic, unlike a lot of other places in the wedding industry that overcharge for poor quality.

The Cefalo family was great in listening to our wishes and helping us to achieve our vision and we had a perfect wedding.

A Gem!

I wanted to thank you and your whole staff at Cefalo's for making the high school's swim banquet just perfect. We received so many appreciative comments following the event about the wonderful food, attentive staff, and the unique venue. You have a gem of a location and we hope that we'll be able to come back again. It worked so well for both the teens and parents in attendance. You are the best and made the planning as easy as possible!

Our guests are sill raving about the food, the music, the atmosphere, and the service!

Thank you very, very much for making our wedding reception the night of our lives. Our guests are sill raving about the food, the music, the atmosphere, and the service. Many said this was the best wedding they had ever attended. The food stations turned out awesome and the night was just perfect. Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to pull off the "impossible" event. We loved it and enjoyed working with you. Thanks for everything!

A Memorable Retirement Party

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you all did last evening. You helped us so much to make our boss's retirement party so memorable. Our guests raved about the food and loved how quaint the venue was.

Amazing Reception!

Thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding reception amazing! You and your staff are terrific… all class! We loved working with you from start to finish. Hope to see you again!

Dreams really do come true!

I never thought dreams really could come true, but you made that happen. There are no words to express how VERY GRATEFUL I am for the fabulous "Dream Come True" shower you had for Joy Ellen. I was asked, "if I were to do it again, what would i change?" My answer was, "Nothing!" The shower was perfect! So with all my heart, I want to thank all of you. It was amazing!

Tremendous Job!

Thank you again so much for an evening that completely exceeded all my expectations. You and your staff did a tremendous job at making me and my family feel so welcome. Dinner was outstanding and we all had a ball enjoying the band, Good Brother Earl, perform at the coolest venue in Pittsburgh! The room took my breath away with all of the beautiful stained glass windows. Thank you for making my celebration so special.

A day that far exceeded our expectations

Thank you so much for the absolutely perfect day! You helped to create a day that far exceeded our expectations. Words cannot express how happy we were with Cefalo's! Our families are still talking about the delicious food and what a great time they had.

You are truly the best at what you do.

Our wedding day couldn't have been any better!

We wanted to thank you, your family, and your staff for a dream come true. Our wedding day couldn't have been any better. The venue, the food, the service, and your hospitality was far beyond anything we expected. We truly appreciate all of your time and effort you put in to making our day as wonderful as I hoped it would be. We cannot extend our gratitude enough.

I have received several comments from my guests on how great the food tasted

Len, I would like to thank you for doing such an amazing job! The day was PERFECT and was without a doubt the best day of our lives thanks to you. I would like to thank Dean for the food because it was excellent. I have received several comments from my guests on how great the food tasted. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the crab cakes were just delicious. One guest commented that it was her best crab cake she had ever tasted and even better than the ones she has had on the coast!!! The lobster bisque was to die for and we finished the extra you gave us by Tuesday. Also I would like to thank your servers and bartenders who did a fantastic job. The service was great and no one was kept waiting. I would also like to thank Amy for everything as well. The whole day was perfect because of all of you!

A Perfect & Memorable Wedding Day

Wow! My husband & I had our reception at Cefalo's on June 18th, 2016 & we are still hearing our guests rave about the venue!
