Donna and Tom did the catering and desserts and staffing for our wedding and were EXCEPTIONAL!!! from day one, Donna was an absolute doll to work with. She is so kind and you can tell that she just loves what she does. She wants everything to be perfect for you and there is no ego involved. It's just all about you on your day. Not all chefs are like that. Her staff were so professional and lovely. The food was bananas. Our guests are still texting and emailing us three days later telling us it was the best food they have EVER had at a wedding. My uncle said it was the best meal he had in LA (and they went to several 5star restaurants). Her apple pie is crazy. I've had it for breakfast every day since. Because she sends you home with leftovers!! Cake amazing. Pies amazing. Fried Chicken and Filets... mac n cheese and mashed potatoes... green beans with bacon... sweet tea... i mean, come on. And she's the best BANG FOR YOUR BUCK you will find in LA.

Bella Donna was extremely great to work with from start to finish for our recent wedding. Their tasting was fantastic and really gave us an idea of what we wanted. They executed our wishes exactly and the cake came out looking fantastic. They were far more reasonably priced than many of their area competitors, and more importantly their cakes and cupcakes taste far better. They also delivered our cake to our venue for a very reasonable fee. We will be using Bella Donna anytime in the future that we need cakes or cupcakes and would highly recommend them for any event!

Bella Donna Special Events is AMAZING!! Donna was so wonderful to work with throughout the process. She genuinely cares about her clients. I shopped around for full-service caterers and her pricing is right for all she does. She'll help you pick out a personalized menu that reflects the bride and groom. You're tasting will be a wonderful dining experience, be sure to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy. The food is fantastic and all of my guest agreed, many went back for seconds! My wedding went off without a hitch, she and her staff provided exceptional service to my guests. They even made a beer run during our wedding to ensure our guests were satisfied. They do cakes too, and again amazing, so yummy! LOOK NO FURTHER YOU'VE FOUND YOUR CATERER! Kevin and Kim Fredericks

I could write pages and pages about how great Donna and her team are, and would gladly do it but not sure if people want to read all the pages of my rave reviews. To keep it simple, they are absolutely the best at what they do. Donna and Tom are wonderful and made our whole process simple. They did everything for us from the food, to the desserts (and the cake), flowers, decorations, all the tables, chairs, linens, dishes, silverware etc. Everything went off without a hitch. Everyone who attended said everything was perfect, the food was amazing, the desserts were perfect, and the ambiance was stunning. We will definitely be using Donna and her team for any big events in the future and for any cakes/desserts needed, as they also have a bakery store front. Definitely go for a consultation, as you will not be disappointed.

To all future brides and party organizers,
I would not know exactly where to begin in telling you how perfect and amazing Bella Donna Special Events made our wedding. Every guest commented for days on how wonderful the food was and many asked for their contact information. Aside from the food being delicious, their professionalism, and service staff was outstanding with literally, no room for improvement. With Donna, the planning was so easy and the funnest part was getting to go to the tasting that Donna had prepared for us and our two daughters. We got to experience an entire sampling of exactly what our guests would be eating and experiencing, from the appetizers, down to the cake. This is a must, since you will not get to taste the food at your own wedding! Their staff is so friendly and wonderful and will always go the extra mile to do anything that needs to be done in terms of setting up, taking down, etc. I just cannot say enough about them - our experience with Donna is one we will never forget and we would never even consider using another caterer for any future catering needs.

I contacted Donna based on a referral from my bridesmaid who had ordered my shower cake from them, just a week before our wedding. I wanted to get a Groom’s Cake in the shape of a Southern Comfort Bottle to surprise my groom but was afraid I had waited too long. From the first interaction, Donna and Tom were pleasant and extremely responsive to work with. When I asked them to make it a carrot cake when other bakeries told me no because of the heat, they gladly accepted the challenge. They never once told me no and worked with me to achieve the best cake possible for my groom. Not only that, but they worked with me to create a small personalized birthday cake to surprise my sister-in-law with since we got married on her birthday. Donna and her staff were flexible, professional and extremely pleasant to work with. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in need of a cake, for any occasion. I know we will definitely be going back to them for any future cake/bakery needs.

Bella Donna did our wedding cake for the wedding and it turned out beautiful! We had a cookie cake which is a bit unusual for a wedding but my husband and I are not cake fans so we wanted something different. They were able to make a cookie cake that looked exactly like a regular 4-tiered wedding cake! No one could believe it was actually cookie! I loved it and it was exactly what we wanted! We still have a piece saved the our one year anniversary :-)

Donna was amazing to work with! Not only was the cake out-of-this world tasty, it looked gorgeous too!

Donna also handled the catering for our rehearsal dinner -- and it was perfect. It was Italian themed, right down to the checkerboard tablecloths and the macaroni in the candle holders. Donna is a catering genius -- we have only heard rave reviews from all of our guests!

We have and will continue to recommend Bella Donna to anyone who wants a caterer with creativity, taste and the skills to make amazing food!

Bella Donna catered my wedding back in August 2011 and we couldn't have been happier with the results!

My husband and I actually eloped to Italy and hosted a reception upon our return, so the party was all Italian themed. We were worried about it being too cheesy...literally! We didnt want red checked table clothes and pizza, we wanted a villa in Tuscany and Donna definitely got it!

She did a great job creating refined and delicious Italian dishes and it was all beautifully presented. I know everyone thinks their wedding is the best but I am very confident that everyone LOVED our food the best!

Bella Donna also created our cake, which of course, was delicious and gorgeous! It was simple, like I wanted, but looked like it came out of a magazine!

We received so many compliments on the delicious spread, even months after the reception! I would definitely use Bella Donna again for a party =)

We worked with Donna and she was referred to us by our friends who had used them for their wedding. Donna was so wonderful, and so attentive to details. Not only did she do our catering, but after our first tasting of the food and dessert, we decided to have her do our wedding cake as well.

All night people were telling us how wonderful the food was and how great the staff was. They made sure that all my little kid friends were taken care of with kid loved foods, which was great. Donna also did a wonderful job going above and beyond, they made sure to come up to my husband and I and make sure we were taken care of.

I would like for them to caterer my parties in the future as well. Thanks for everything Donna!

Bella Donna Special Events catered our wedding and it was truly a magical event. They planned the menu with us from scratch and created our fabulous cake. It was an outdoor with no onsite kitchen and the table served dinner was hot, the presentation was excellent and the food itself tasted better than any that I have had in some 4 and 5 star restaurants. It was really unbelievable. The cake was beautiful and tasted just as good. Out guests personally complimented us on everything from the appetizers to the cake and we could not have asked for anything better on our special day!

Hi! Bella Donna is FABULOUS!!! They just catered my 150 person wedding at the end of March and totally exceeded my expectations. Let me start by saying that Donna is so nice, so available for anything, and so professional. I know nothing about weddings and when she met me at the reception site, she basically planned everything from head to toe and helped my to anticipate and problems and hiccups. She did more than deliver, she provided decore that I didn't even know of, that matched my colors and flowers. She was totally visible and present during the reception to help things along, she knows her stuff and I think has a great staff to help her execute. My food was delicious, I had 3 very unique passed appetizers, a MOIST chicken breast, and her cupcakes stole the show. My mother planned an even recently at a very nice golf course in thier "in house" food was atrocious. It lacked the stlye, detail, color and of course flavor that Donna brought. Head to toe a great experience, I was so happy!

What a great choice I made going with Bella Donna Special Events! Where to start...the staff! Mainly I worked with Donna, and she is such a sweet person, professional, and sincerely wants your day to come out as perfect as you do. Inquiries were answered by her promptly and she is very detail-oriented. And the food...wow! Initially I had a great list of variety to choose from, including hors d'oeuvres, salads, breads, entrees and desserts, and I don't think I could have gone wrong with anything. It was all delicious, and luckily, as the bride, I got to enjoy some of it :) The decor...not only were the reception tables beautifully coordinated, but she took the time to make sure the cocktail tables and buffet tables looked good too. Every detail was taken into account. The cake...I had a very specific idea of how I wanted the cake to look, and made my choices for cake type and fillings. It came out beautiful, and was also some of the best cake I have ever eaten. There is a lot to consider and many decisions to be made when choosing a caterer, and in my experience, was painless. My decision to work with Bella Donna helped to make my wedding day a truly perfect one!

Donna was wonderful to work with. It was like working with your best friend. She pays special attention to detail so that everything is just what you want. All of the tables looked beautiful. Not just the dinner tables but the coffee table, water table, and the buffet table.
The food was exquisite. I had people coming up to me all day asking me who my caterer was because the food was wonderful. She even made a special plate for one of our guests who had a pepper allergy. The wedding cake was delicious. So moist and the fillings were to die for. At the end of the day there was not much left and people were asking for more.
Donna also helped me cut corners to save money which is always a plus when planning a wedding. She was always there for my phone calls to answer my questions and concerns no matter how trivial. Donna's prices are VERY resonable. I got quote from other caterers and they were more expensive and the attention to detail were not there.

I would recommend Bella Donna Special Events for any event no matter how large or small. You won't be disappointed. Everthing for me was perfect and Donna made a stressful time, painless.

I recommend Donna at Bella Donna Special Events to any bride who wants beautiful wedding flowers that everyone will talk about. She not only did our flowers for the reception and Gazebo, she made our cake and went above and beyond helping in setting up a candy buffet and setting out my favors.
Our flowers were absolutly stunning and the Gazebo flowers and decor was amazing. I never invisioned the Gazebo so beautiful. All the weekends I went and spied on other brides ideas at my location would never compare to what Donna did and how beautiful my wedding turned out. I was beyond happy.
All our guests are talking about how beautiful my flowers were and how delicious the cake was. It was an exact replica of the picture I wanted. It was delicious and my new husband said the top cake we put in our freezer will not make it a month in there. He has promised me he would buy us another small one for our first anniversary from Donna.
Thank you donna for all your hard and amazing work and making my Wedding Truly the most special and beautiful day of my Life.

Bella Donna Special Events provided us with spectacular service from start to finish. Donna McDaniel-Pavlock has enormous reserves of energy, enthusiasm, creativity, sensitivity to one's individual needs - all this, together with the incredibly delicious food would have been a bargain at twice the price. It was amazing to see our vision come to pass exactly as promised. I can't imagine hosting an event in the future and having anyone but Bella Donna cater. Thanks for making our fairy tale come true!

5.0 All the way!
People have rented our home and yard for special events, and we've always used Bella Donna Special Events as the planner/caterer. They leave the property and kitchen in even better shape than they found it! The service is absolutely A+ from the fab food to the very friendly and professional staff. Donna is a "hands-on" owner/event planner and treats every client like royalty. She helps you realize your dream - THAT's what you want, I promise you!
