Fabulous Food!

Dear  Tony and Staff, 

Thank you so much for helping me raise money for Crohns and Colitis. It was a fun evening. Everyone loved the food. Ozzie was amazing! The charcuterie board was fabulous and so were the hors d'oeuvres. You guys are amazing! I love Sala and the service! Hope you have a great season. 


Most Beautiful, Fun, and Delicious Engagement Party!

Painless and Enjoyable Wedding

Dear Michelle, 

Thank you for your warm and personable care, making our wedding planning as painless and enjoyable as possible. We loved the beautiful venue and really appreciated your DJ recommendation. Wishing you success with future Jewish catered events at Sala San Marco. 

Sandi and Mordechai 

Professionalism, Courtesy & Understanding

Dear Elena and Tony,

Thank you both so much for all of your assistance and patience throughout an incredibly busy year of wedding preparations. With the professionalism, courtesy and understanding you both displayed so regularly, it's no wonder that Sala San Marco has become the standard by which all other reception halls in Ottawa are measured. The attention to detail paid by each of you as well as every one of your staff (especially Habib) was truly exceptional and did much to put our minds at ease during a very stressful time.

In addition, your willingness and determination to work hand in hand with our decorator (Eugenia of Details Ottawa) paid off in a big way as our guests could not stop commenting on how beautiful the hall was. We can only hope that other couples will be able to experience the same exceptional quality of service that we did.

Kind regards and best wishes,
Elvira & Steve

Unforgettable Generosity & Professionalism

Dear Tony and all the wonderful Staff at the Sala San Marco,

It is with the most heartfelt and deep gratitude that we thank you for being the Ottawa home to my brother Marty Bergmann's funeral service on August 30th, 2011. The beautiful venue and enormous care you provided are unmatched. Your generosity and professionalism will not be forgotten.

Thank you,
The Bergmann Family

Pass My Compliments to the Chef

Dear Mr. Zacconi,

On behalf of the Canadian Military Engineer Branch, I would like to express my appreciation to you and your staff for excellent service Sala San Marco provided to the 2012 CME National Capital Region Mess Dinner.

From the start of planning in September, Ms. Elena Morrison consistently maintained excellent communication with the event planners, and demonstrated a superb ability to meet the needs of this most formal military social event. Throughout the planning process, lead up preparation and even moments before the mess dinner itself, Mr. Habib Ghazal demonstrated outstanding energy, flexibility and professionalism in making the evening a resounding success. His service staff was hard working and cordial to all guests throughout the evening. Finally, please pass my compliments to Chef Giovanni Russo and your kitchen staff for the first-rate meal that was served during the event.

Once again, please extend my sincere thanks to all of your staff for their outstanding work during our mess dinner. Their efforts were fundamental to the overall success of the event.

Yours truly,
Colonel Daniel A. MacIsaac, CDCME Branch Advisor,
National Defence Headquarters

The Wedding of Our Dreams


... your staff gave us the wedding of our dreams. So much so, that people are still talking about it to this day.

This is from our wedding day speech:

'We would like to start off by saying Thank You to Tony Zacconi and the staff at Sala San Marco. planning a wedding from a distance is not an easy task, but over the past year Tony has gone to great lengths to help us organize and plan almost every aspect of this wedding — from transportation, to decor, to photography. Everything you see tonight would not have been possible without Tony's generosity, dedication to his work, his "connections", and the great group of people he surrounds himself with.'

Your kindness, generosity, and genuine concern for our special day is something we will both remember and cherish for years to come. We could not have done it without you.

Once again, Thank You!!
Mario & Kristen Fabiano
