About Us

Our Story

Since 1982, our family business has built a reputation as the best New Jersey wedding venue. While we began as a restaurant, we honor the roots of our Polimeni family by continuing to serve phenomenal, authentic Italian cuisine and offering service beyond what is required. As a result, our New Jersey wedding venue is highly-rated by past clients and admired by New Jersey Bride, The Knot, and Wedding Wire. 


Celebrating over 

40 years of excellence

Why il Tulipano

Rich Family History

Our humble beginnings start with our Italian heritage. Il Tulipano began as one of the best Italian restaurants in New Jersey, celebrating the traditions of the Polimeni family.

Now, we are one of the top-rated New Jersey wedding venues – see coverage in New Jersey Bride, The Knot, and Wedding Wire, to name but a few – with the best food, passionate hospitality, and exceptional service. 

At the heart of our business, we are rooted in family. In fact, we believe in extending this same warmth and zest so much that we only focus on one bride at a time, unlike other New Jersey wedding venues.


More Than Just a Number

One wedding at a time

At Il Tulipano, you’re gaining more than one of the best wedding venues in New Jersey. 

You aren’t a faceless person with your name and check attached to a date. By focusing on only one bride at a time, we can ensure no stone is unturned, no detail forgotten, and every moment is as magical as you imagined. 

Not to mention, you get to benefit from our award-winning chefs, exemplary service, gorgeous grounds, and an irrefutable Italian zeal.

L’amore e la fede dall’opera si vede

“Love and faith can be seen from the work.” Like a marriage, we work hard and it shows.

People Said


My husband and I chose Il Tulipano for our wedding in May. It was one of the best choices we made for our special day. It was perfect for our guest count (150) and they were super flexible with the indoor/outdoor wedding (and rain backup plan). Everything was beautiful! Our guests were over the moon with the entire event. The pictures by the back waterfall garden came out gorgeous!!! Carlos was fantastic to work with and very flexible with our decor and setup requests. EXTREMELY SMOOTH day-of execution. Couldn’t be happier with the entire process. Would highly recommend having an event here!
