We just returned from a week at Villa Oliviero which was also the setting for our daughter's wedding reception. Members of both families and the bride and groom occupied all 6 suites, and we had few days of respite before the wedding festivities. With breakfast on the terrace which was spectacular. Alaina prepared breakfast to order as well as two evening meals for us which were wonderful.
Our daughter and son-in-law chose Villa Oliviero the previous May with the help of a wedding planner, Federica Necimben. Gennaro, the manager, of the villa was extremely helpful with day-to-day details such as transportation, excursions and even helping us to visit a restaurant in Montepetruso for dinner.
The day of the wedding with 70 guests attending, the villa was transformed into the most beautiful elegant setting. The actual ceremony was at the church in the center of Positano. Cocktails, raw bar, appetizers and dinner and were on the top veranda.The pace of the 3 course dinner was perfect, food was hot and delicious. Cake, fruit and dancing were on the lower terrace.
As we were dancing away, the entire upper terrace was completely cleaned up, so when all our guests came upstairs to leave, everything was put away and cleared up.
The following day, we had a pizza party for our wedding guests poolside. (There's a pizza oven poolside on the lower level.) We had one more night before we had to leave and we found out as soon as we left another party was coming in for a pizza party that night and a wedding the following day. Nello, the owner, certainly has the service, and setup down to a science.
Several guest said it was the best wedding they had ever attended and we have to agree. Everything was perfect.
