Vivaldi Ristorante Bayside NY Party Rooms Review

Are you thinking about booking a family event at Vivaldi Ristorante? (Link to restaurant website below .... read on!)


Vivaldi ( formerly Valentino's ) is located at 201-10 Cross Island Parkway, Bayside 11360.  It is a great place for a Communion Party, Baptism Party or 1st Birthday Party because they really know how to cater to families with small kids.


Party Entertainment Bayside Queens NY


I was hired to do a magic show to keep the kids happy at a Christening and I was really impressed by the staff. They helped organize the flow of events so that the children were fed and ready to be entertained with some amazing magic while the grown-ups sat around and enjoyed the excellent food and drink. About 10 minutes into my show, every parent in the room gathered around to watch the show and I had a blast playing off the crowd. This party had more than one quick-witted audience member who playfully "heckled" me and I returned the same. Lots of laughs!

Where To Have  a Party in Queens?


I do lots of parties all over Queens; here's my take on why you may want to book your next special occasion at Valentino's:

  • Location - the restaurant is right off the Cross Island Parkway and is just minutes away from the Throg's Neck Bridge. If you have relatives in Westchester or Connecticut it's a convenient location.

  • Parking - they have plenty of room for your car. The only thing I noticed is you may have to park at a lot that is half a block away if they're jammed. I managed to find a spot on the street by the door.

  • Decor - I give the place 5 Stars for decor and setting. It's one of the more impressive catering halls in Queens. It has genuine charm. Lots of catering halls are cheesy, gaudy affairs - but Valentino's is very classy.

  • Service - Anytime the maître d takes a personal interest in making the magic show more fun for the guests they get a big gold star. Erin was wonderful and made sure the show was a hit.

  • Food - Oh, yeah ... food! I didn't have a chance to nibble at the party (I'm too busy doing magic tricks, juggling and making balloon sculptures to eat!) but from what I could see and smell the food was wonderful.

  • Price - I don't know how expensive it is to have a party here but you owe it to yourself to check the room out for your next event.

Once you've booked the room give me a call. If you're hosting a party with a bunch of kids at a catering hall you need entertainment. Children are not big fans of dressing up and sitting around a dinner table for hours on end. You need fun entertainment for the kids.

Magician for Queens Kids


My magic show is great for family events where you'll have a number of children of various ages. The very young kids love my juggling and balloons, the older kids are amazed by my magic and everyone enjoys the comedy ... and the live bunny rabbit. I combines lots of different forms of entertainment (sleight of hand, stand-up comedy, juggling, balloon sculptures) so that the show has "something for everyone."


When I start the magic show your guests can relax knowing they can sit and enjoy the party while their children are entertained.


My weekends book up so ... give me a call or fill out the form soon.


PS ... I just booked another communion party at this location and my client informed me that they changed the name from Valentino's to Vivaldi.  I don't know if it is the same management or not so I can't attest to the standards there but in looking at their website it looks great: http://vivaldiny.com/
