We were extremely happy with the service we received from Bella Catering for our wedding this October. Tyler was extremely organized and professional and made our reception go more smoothly than I ever thought was possible. The food was excellent, the facilities were beautiful, and I would recommend that any type of event be held here. More...

As the chair for the Partners for Pets fundraiser, Valen'tails, I have nothing but the best things to say about working with Bella Milano in the Leclaire Room. First and foremost, the people at Bella Milano are generous supporters of nonprofit causes in their community, something we greatly admire. The venue looked beautiful, the food was absolutely delicious and the staff was professional. Mercedes Menke was a total pleasure to work with. Always patient and a true problem solver, Mercedes made our event run seamlessly. Thank you all so much! - Partners for Pets More...

We couldn't have been more pleased with our wedding experience. Mercedes was an excellent coordinator who made sure we had everything we wanted/needed for the whole process. The food was delicious and we had the most amazing wedding. I would definitely recommend to everyone. Especially if Mercedes is in charge. More...

Our wedding day could not have been any better! We used the courtyard for an outdoor wedding and then the Leclaire Room for our wedding reception. Mercedes made everything run so smoothly. She was wonderful and truly knows what she is doing! She made sure that EVERYTHING was ready to go on that day and was always checking in to make sure if we needed anything. She responds quickly to any questions and handled all of our rentals, and immediately jumped in to help when my maid of honor had water spilt on herself just 10 minutes before the wedding! Everyone at our wedding raved about the location and said it was absolutely gorgeous. And throughout the night, everyone was commenting on how Bella Milano's food was the best food they have ever had at a wedding! If you are even thinking about using the Leclaire Room and Bella Milano for your event, book it!!! You will have a wonderful event! More...

While Bella Catering specializes in Italian cuisine, we are happy to accommodate almost any request or idea you may have for your event's menu. Some themes we have entertained in the past include a Mardi Gras theme with Cajun cuisine, a "Zen" event featuring Asian food, a "Sandlot" themed event featuring hot dogs, popcorn, and s'mores, and a tropical themed even featuring pineapple pork kabobs and tangy orange chicken wings. What are some of your ideas? Let us know!

We love listening to our clients' inspiration and ideas they are eager to see come to fruition. Any off-menu requests our clients may have give our chefs the perfect opportunity to get creative.

Every gathering we host is a celebration of life and love. Parties bring people together, reunite friends and family, and give everyone a reason to have fun. We try to facilitate that for each and every client we encounter.

We hope you will find that our attention to detail and personalized planning services are put in place to make you feel confident that the event that you have been imagining will be just as you had hoped. We take into consideration your priorities and help to ease the stress of planning so you too can enjoy the event you have planned for your family and friends.

We are happy to communicate remotely or meet in person. We definitely like our clients to have everything in writing, so you will find that after any in-person meetings, we will send out emails to recap any information that is covered so that everyone is always on the same page.

In addition to following all Illinois Health Department requirements, we will also continue to follow the state COVID-19 guidelines that have been set in place for public venues and event spaces. These restrictions include but are not limited to seating no more than 50 people at a time or 50% of a room's capacity, requiring all guests to wear masks when moving about the space, requiring all staff to wear masks at all times and gloves when handling food or drinks, prohibiting drink stations and the use of dance floors. We understand that these restrictions make it difficult to have a celebration, but our guests' safety is our priority, and we are happy to discuss other options and ways to celebrate with these restrictions in mind.


We offer plated meals, buffet service, passed appetizers and more. Give us a call to plan an event that's just your style.

We are happy to provide everything from your basic beer and wine bar to custom cocktails. Call us today to learn about our options.
