2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner
$11k - $13k For 100 Guests

La Bella Vista is an upscale full-service wedding venue located in the quiet rolling hills of Waterbury, Connecticut. This unique venue is situated on the private grounds of The Pontelandolfo Community Club, offering scenic views of 70 landscaped acres. The high, dramatic ceilings, marble flooring, and elegant ballroom combine old-world traditions with a modern twist.

The event space can host up to 500 guests. Accented by crystal chandeliers, champagne Chiavari chairs, and classic crown-molded columns, the ballrooms offer a timeless setting for your day. The courtyard includes a 30-foot water feature backdrop, dual water fountains, lush seasonal landscaping, and a white pergola. You'll be surrounded by stunning photo opportunities at every moment.

Services Offered

La Bella Vista employs an award-winning culinary team, your own personal event planner, and a Maitre D' to keep each wedding on course. Anthony D'Eila partnered with the Pontelandolfo Club as their on-site caterer. Couples can choose from personalized menus made from scratch. An abundance of innovative hors d'oeuvres will make your guests' mouths water at the cocktail reception, culminating in a plated dinner or stations. A cake or cupcakes are included in the wedding packages, completing your meal with a romantic sweet treat. Barware, glassware, flatware, and linens are all available, as well as a surprise: the chocolate fountain. Servers will take care of your every need during the day, and setup and cleanup are also provided.

    Simply Amazing!

    Our experience at La Bella Vista was truly a dream!!! My husband and I have been through the wringer this year trying to not only plan a wedding, but simply finding a way to make it happen during these crazy times! Our original venue had to reschedule our date to more than a year out, and then we had a plan B, which canceled on us ONE week before our wedding date! Luckily, our J.O.P recommended La Bella Vista immediately. The night that our wedding venue canceled on us was chaotic and heartbreaking, to say the least. Linnea was in contact with us that same night and put our mind at ease from the moment we began chatting. She quickly directed me to the "Tented Wedding" options for me to review. She quickly managed to schedule an appointment for us to come to the venue on the next day to make sure it was a good fit for us. Within 5 minutes of seeing the venue and speaking with Linnea, my husband looked at me and said "this is the place, we are booking right now!" Once Linnea and her team got the go ahead from us, they didn't skip a beat. You would never know that they pulled together our wedding within 6 days!!! I now truly believe that everything happens for a reason. We are SO glad that our "Plan B" option fell through for us and we were guided to La Bella Vista. I wish we booked at this venue from the beginning of our wedding planning. The tented reception was so beautiful, I would prefer it over being inside any day! Their staff was truly like family. Not only were me and my husband catered to every second of the day, but so were our guests. Our guests still rave about the delicious food and service! I can't tell you how many times we heard "That was the best food I have ever had at a wedding!" We are so sad that our beautiful wedding is in the past, and we already miss Linnea and her amazing staff, but I have no doubt we will be back again for EVERY other event we plan. They truly are the best!

We love working with La Bella Vista's staff as they are so accommodating and professional. The ballrooms and grounds are stunning and the food is delicious as we have attended some of their tasting dinner. It is definitely a must see family run venue!
