Announcing Russo’s newest venue “Piazza Messina”!

Posted on: | Categories: Blog
Russo’s proudly announces our newest Wedding and Special Events venue, opening mid-summer in 2018 in Cottleville, Missouri!

Piazza MESSINA is the culmination of many years of hard work and is dedicated to Fran (Messina) Russo. Fran, along with her husband Matteo Russo, started our Catering business in 1961. This lifelong business journey of commitment to quality and to our many loyal customers has enabled us to arrive at this exciting time. The design concept of Piazza MESSINA is the perfect marriage of rustic and modern Tuscan décor in a beautiful natural setting. Piazza MESSINA will include 8,000 + square feet of private event space situated on 14 ½ acres of agricultural land. Featuring a bistro, ballroom and both an indoor and outdoor bar, our venue will overlook a beautiful four-acre lake. One of the most unique features of Piazza MESSINA will be the seamless transition from an indoor to outdoor setting, including a wraparound covered portico with a view of the lake. In addition, large overhead doors will open onto an open-air patio. Outdoor amenities will include decorative accent lighting, fountains, pergolas, fire pits, beautiful natural landscaping and of course our four-acre MESSINA “Lago”

Weddings at Piazza MESSINA will offer a “destination” type setting without having to travel hours away. Lakeside Wedding sites will be offered on the property, as well as a Cottage for the Bridal party to use prior to the Wedding. In addition to Weddings, Piazza MESSINA will also host all types of corporate events, social occasions, rehearsal dinners, wine tastings and more. Situated in quaint, historic downtown Cottleville, our property is conveniently located on State Highway N and very secluded, surrounded by groves of trees. For all your events, you can expect the best that Russo’s has come to offer, such as a large selection of service styles and menus featuring global inspired and heirloom recipes. On the horizon, plans are in place for Piazza MESSINA to host seasonal events open to the public.

All of us at Russo’s are looking forward to joining the Cottleville community and hope that you will join us very soon at Piazza MESSINA!

“Avrai sempre un post al nostro tavalo!“ (You’ll always have a place at our table!)
