From day one of planning my wedding with Lauren Madison and Bella Sera I felt like they had everything covered and all I had to do was show up. When looking at venues my husband and I had two priorities we wanted a clean beautiful space and amazing food for or wedding and reception venue. Bella Sera fulfilled both of these requirements.
After we booked our date, we continued to be impressed by the professionalism and speed that our questions were answered. I would send Lauren an email about someone and would usually have a response back to me by the end of the day. As the days got closer to our wedding day, we had more and more questions about the small things. I would send her five to ten questions in an email and again by the end of the day our questions would be answered.
When we got to the wedding day I was not worried about Bella Sera or any of our vendors knowing what to do. I know they had it covered. Lauren was able to coordinate with the DJ, the baker, the florist and the photographer without me needing to know about any problems.
When it came to the food no guest went away hungry. He has so much delicious food from appetizer to main dish, and desserts everyone was stuffed.
Bella Sera and Lauren Madison made my wedding day run smooth and problem free.
We found out about Bella Sera from my aunt who had been there before. From our first visit up to our reception, the facility remains impressive. Lauren who assisted us with our planning was excellent. She worked with both of us to ensure our day was absolutely perfect. The pictures on the website cannot do the place justice. It is so much more impressive in person. The layout and how they do the cocktail hour, the introductions, and the dinner is great. All areas of the facility have an Italian old world charm.
As impressive, extremely clean, and well decorated the facility is, the quality of the food takes it to another level. I highly recommend taking advantage of the tasting prior to your event. You will not leave hungry. We were really impressed with our selections and how well they were presented.
Throughout the night we heard nothing but positive feedback from our guests on how awesome the facility is and how good their meals were. The staff that served our guests were top notch as well. They made sure that everything went without a hitch.
Thank you so much for your review! It was a pleasure to work with you both! Congrats again!
If you have a wedding in Pittsburgh and don't have it at Bella Sera, you are crazy. Weeks after our wedding, our family and friends are still raving about the food, drinks, service, beautiful room, cookie table display...everything! The team is prompt, professional, flexible, responsive, and simply a pleasure to work with. I cannot say enough about how wonderful - and stress free - my experience with Bella Sera was.
Thank you so much Lynn and Derek! We are honored that you selected Bella Sera to celebrate your wedding day. Congratulations again!
Where do I even start.. lets begin with the Wedding Coordinator Lauren! She was fabulous from the planning stage to the very last detail placed during the reception. When I wasn't sure or didn't have an idea, she stepped right up suggesting things & I had no problem putting my trust in her! She was so easy to work with, the word STRESSED OUT never entered my vocabulary once!! She is a true gem when it comes to Wedding Planning & Prep!!
We had both the ceremony & reception at Bella Sera, it beyond exceeded our expectations. Everything was gorgeous, the venue didn't need much in terms of decor, it truly stands out from any other place in Pittsburgh & the surrounding areas.
The food & desserts; exceptional! So many compliments we heard from our guests(the wedding soup was the crowd favorite)!!
The staff were professional and no one was left unattended.
I couldn't thank Bella Sera enough for giving me the wedding I always wanted and making it more than I ever dreamed.
Hands downs and without hesitation would recommend this venue to anyone!!
Thank you so much Laina! It was wonderful working with you! Best wishes to you and Jim!
Food was wonderful, venue was BEAUTIFUL.. People couldn't stop talking about how perfect it was. Lauren was so helpful and amazing! We loved working with her. She made it so the day went without any hiccups what so ever! Erin was also amazing. She stood with me right before I walked down the isle and took some beautiful candids for me! (Lauren was with my bridesmaids on the first floor, they told me she was wonderful) couldn't have made this day better without their help!
Thank you so much Leena! It was amazing to work with you and Drew. Thanks for choosing Bella Sera to celebrate your special day. Congratulations again!
The entire staff was amazing! So friendly and accommodating to our needs and made our guests feel wonderful! Lauren and her team were truly a blessing to work with, she was always willing to answer emails quickly and help in any way we asked her! Thank you Bella Sera for making our wedding day perfect!!
Bella Sera is an enchanting place to tie the knot. My husband and I had a shorter engagement (4 months) so we were scrambling a bit to pull it all together. I saw pictures of Bella Sera and fell in love with the venue. I called the venues wedding/event planner Lauren and she was so helpful and pleasant to work with. Found us a great day for a great price. The food at the wedding was delicious and the crew was super helpful and fun to work with. I cannot say enough good things about Bella Sera and Lauren. You will not regret you decision of getting married here. Everything from the foyer to the fire place is gorgeous, your pictures will turn out fabulous and your guests will be blown away.. I know that was true for me. Enjoy! :)
Thank you Jamie! Congratulations again to you and Jordan! It was a pleasure to work with you both!
Having my reception at Bella Sera was one of the best decisions I made regarding our wedding. This place and the entire staff are wonderful, kind and extremely helpful. Lauren and Erin made sure everything ran smoothly and were so unbelievably flexible and responsive. I honestly didn't have to worry about a thing. If I had to go back and do it again, I would not change a thing! What a magical place, perfect for a dream wedding, honestly. Thank you so much to Lauren, Erin, Jason and the entire hard working staff for making our night perfect!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Kristen! Congratulations again!

Lauren Madison was wonderful to work with!
Thank you Micala! I hope you and Bryan are enjoying married life! Best wishes to you both!
I recently had my wedding at Bella sera and could not have been happier with the entire experience. The food and drinks were perfect and the venue itself looked amazing and beautiful. But the real shining star of Bella sera is their wedding coordinator, Lauren Madison. She was unbelievably awesome to work with. She answered every email, question, concern and issue I had. She took care of all the details and made this process go as smoothly as possible. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding day!
Thank you Abbey! Congratulations again to you and Ryan. It was wonderful working with you both!
Bella Sera is a beautiful venue with great food and amazing service. Lauren is very responsive to emails and phone calls, not leaving a question unanswered.
Working with Bella Sera and more specifically with Lauren Madison was phenomenal! From the time we booked the event to the end of our wedding night I was continually impressed. I was planning from out of town, and she made the planning process smooth and without stress. I could always get a hold of Lauren quickly. Bethel Bakery was also wonderful to work with and the cake was not only beautiful but delicious. The Standard DJ did a great job however the company kept emailing me with a balance on my account in error. Lauren cleared up the error the same day.
This venue was fabulous! We knew it was 'our place' the second we walked in. It is unique, beautiful - and we had the all inclusive Winter Wedding Package, which is super convenient, especially being an out of town bride. Lauren, the coordinator was great - very friendly and helpful! She was willing to help us do anything we wanted to make our day exactly what we wanted. The food is delicious, and the presentation top notch. Every single one of our guests commented on how awesome the place is! The ambiance is fantastic.
My wedding was absolutely perfect, all thanks to Bella Sera and their entire staff! Lauren Madison was a great pleasure to work with. She was extremely organized, very prompt to respond to my emails, always available to answer my numerous questions, and offered many great suggestions. I know that my special day would not have been the same had I picked a different venue or worked with another coordinator! She made the entire process extremely stress-free and worry-free.
Our March 21st wedding was part of Bella Sera's Winter Wedding package, which made planning incredibly easy, including the cake, DJ, photographer, food, beverage, and most decor. We were extremely happy with all of the vendors included in the package.
The venue is so gorgeous that we decided to also have our ceremony on-location. The staff did an fantastic job to quickly transform the space for the reception. They handled all of the setup, decorations, tear down and packup at the end of the night for us. My guests are still raving about the delicious food and great service. I also commend Bella Sera for taking excellent care of our guests with dietary restrictions, including the groom who has celiacs. Lauren also checked in with us throughout the entire day/night, which we really appreciated!
I can't thank Bella Sera enough for creating the wedding of our dreams! I highly recommend this venue for any engaged couple!
Lauren Madison, Event Coordinator, was very pleasant to work with. The two women who catered our event could not have been nicer, pleasant and more accommodating. Everyone raved about the food and the facility. I was extremely pleased with Bella Sera's.
