Private Dining

Our private dining accommodations at Caffe Riace consist of three separate private dining rooms with their own private entrances, distinctly appointed with Italian murals, luxuriously carpeted throughout. We also boast an exclusive Italian-style piazza, which boasts a grand circular fountain, coupled with goliath Etruscan statues that stand guard over their valued patrons.

The three indoor private spaces are:

  • Prosecco Room: which can seat up to 18 guests, our
  • Wine Room: which can seat up to 10 guests around a round glass table & our larger
  • Main Dining Room: which can seat up to 35 guests respectively.

The outdoor Italian-style Piazza can accommodate up to 200 guests, or can be subdivided into many different sized configurations, for private or semi-private events as well. Together, these combined spaces can be utilized to seat up to around 260 guests or so, for a complete buyout of the restaurant. Enveloped in a sumptuous Sicilian-style setting, our unique private dining accommodations at Caffe Riace take in the beauty of the restaurant, while at the same time allowing for privacy, without the confinement of a simple four-walled banquet room. A remarkable & spectacular environment in which to hold your next upcoming private event.

Additional Information

While we do not impose a room charge for our private spaces, we do require a food & beverage minimum. Room minimums are simply based on seasonal demand as well as the specific date and time of the event. We do reserve the right to change room venues if the group size changes. An 8.75% sales tax and a 20% service/gratuity charge will be added to all private events. Restaurant buyouts are also available at an additional fee. To confirm all group reservations, a 40% non-refundable deposit is required on all private dining events. Acceptance of these policies shall be acknowledged in full, once a valid credit card has been received in order to guarantee and confirm a specific event.

An expected attendance must be received no later than 72 working hours (M-F) prior to the scheduled event. Once provided, the guest count can increase but not decrease and the established room minimums cannot be lowered due to a reduced headcount. For groups of 15 or more, all wine & prix-fix menu orders should be received by the restaurant no less than 1 week prior to the event. This is essential for ordering & preparing the menu and in providing certain wine selections. Specific vintages may vary based on availability. From Jan. thru Sept., any events cancelled less than 2 weeks prior to the event date are subject to a cancellation fee of fifty percent (50 %) of the total estimated cost. Any cancellations within 72 hours of the event, the food & beverage minimum plus applicable tax & gratuity will be charged. A $50 cancellation/set-up fee is charged for all cancelled events. From Oct. thru Dec., cancellations beyond 60 days, full deposit will credit for future event – within 60 days, full deposit will be forfeited and within 30 days, the food & beverage minimum plus applicable tax & gratuity will be charged. Deposits are non-refundable for all events.
