    i had my daughter's baby shower at bello giorno estate. The staff was a tremendous help to me with setting up. The staff set up my dessert table so it made a beautiful presentation. Monica hung my clothesline and hung the onsies and outfits on it. This was a wonderful help to me timewise. During the shower they went to the tables and asked my guests if the wanted drinks or refills. They were helpful in many ways and even some guests commented on how wonderful they were. overall, they made ME look good. No other venue that I've used did what these girls did.

    Bello Giorno helped make our wedding day unforgettable.

    Bello Giorno did a phenomenal job of hosting our wedding reception in October. It felt as though they took care of everything, letting us enjoy the day stress-free. The very reasonably priced package included the cake and catering and the food was amazing! Also the venue has a very welcoming family feel, as personal as it is elegant, and the staff are exceptionally kind and friendly, from the manager to the bridal assistant to the bartender and butlers – they made us feel like we were among family.
    Throughout the planning process, Monica and Stephanie were just a phone call or text away, highly responsive to our questions and with an exceptional attention to detail. The service we got from Bello Giorno leading up to the day, as well as on the day itself, was remarkable. We were able to personalize the wedding to our heart’s desire, with Stephanie and Monica supporting us every step of the way toward realizing that vision.
    We had our ceremony at our church and came to Bello Giorno later in the day for the reception. Upon our arrival to the venue, being able to retreat by ourselves into the beautiful cottage behind the venue and have some cocktails and appetizers in private helped us to ground ourselves and take everything in. Staff were delicately attentive to us, making sure we had enough food and drink while also allowing for our space.
    The grounds are gorgeous. Some guests were seen stepping outside during the reception and just admiring the water running by in the river, or holding low-key conversation, remarking on how pleasant the outdoors was.
    The inside of the venue was just the perfect size for our wedding, large enough to give everyone their space while also small enough to allow everyone to be near enough to one another and mingle. Things came together more nicely than we could have imagined.
    Ultimately, we can say with confidence that Bello Giorno helped make our day as happy as possible. And our guests concurred – they reported the event was charming and the food was delicious, and at least one guest made a point of urging us to write a positive review if we did not already plan to do so ourselves (though we did plan to!). Every guest seemed to be made to feel as honored, welcomed and taken care of as we the bride and groom felt, which was very important to us. We’ve heard nothing but positive feedback from our guests about the venue and their staff. They even went above and beyond to prepare special meals for some of our vegetarian and vegan guests!
    We highly recommend Bello Giorno, especially if low-stress wedding planning and a warm, intimate family feel complemented by phenomenal Italian food are desired on your special day. If we were to do the day over, we would have it be just the same, and we would trust Bello Giorno to make it as perfect as they did the first time.
    Thanks Bello Giorno for helping make our day unforgettable!

For those looking for that "personal touch," I can't say enough about Tom and his team at Bello Giorno. As one of our most loyal vendors in the network in the past few years, Bello Giorno Catering has a proven record for taking care of the needs of LGBT couples. From a business-to-business perspective, we have loved getting to know Tom as we value highly personal relationships in our increasingly impersonal world.
