Anthony DeLuca and Bella DeNapoli share a love for the East End passed down through their families. Anthony works in real estate in the Hamptons as part of the Oversouth Team, and his uncle used to own Johnny Marlins on Gosman’s Dock, which introduced him to Montauk at a very young age. Bella is a singer and influencer who you may recognize from NBC’s “The Voice” on team Ariana Grande. She has also performed on the East End at various venues, such as Dune Deck in Westhampton Beach, The Chequit on Shelter Island, and Montauk Beach House. The couple is expecting a baby in July, and we had the chance to catch up with them and learn more about their story.

Tell us about your background and connection to the East End.

Anthony: The East End has been an integral part of our lives for as long as we can remember. My summers in Montauk date back to my infancy. It wasn’t merely a vacation; it was a lifestyle and a second home with strong family connections.

Bella: My family’s connection with the East End began even before I was born, with my mother spending summers working in Montauk throughout her twenties. Her influence inspired me to follow in her footsteps.

Anthony, can you share your family’s history in Montauk?

Anthony: My family has been deeply woven into Montauk’s lifestyle and culture since the late ’80s when my great-uncle started the renowned fisherman’s restaurant, Johnny Marlins. Our family’s restaurant has kept us rooted to the area, making Montauk feel like home. With a new family member on the way, I eagerly anticipate sharing the Montauk experience with the next generation.

Bella, Can you talk about your experience on “The Voice”?

Bella: NBC’s “The Voice” marked a significant turning point in my life. Initially planning to work as a beach hostess at Gurney’s in Montauk, I was instead chosen to participate in the show, and I relocated to California. Making it to the top 13 on the show led to valuable connections, lifelong friendships, and personal growth. I had the opportunity to choose a coach on the show. Having my choice, I went with my lifelong role model, Ariana Grande. Having Ariana Grande as my coach on the show was an unbelievable experience. She was not only my coach; she was an industry mentor and older sister to me. The experience was a dream, and it truly did pave the way for me to pursue my passion for music.

Where can audiences watch you perform on the East End?

Bella: Each summer, I entertain audiences with live music across the Hamptons. Starting in May at the Montauk Music Festival, I perform with my band, setting the tone for the season. Venues where you may find me include Montauk Beach House, Dune Deck in Westhampton Beach, The Chequit in Shelter Island, and more. Additionally, I now offer live music for weddings during cocktail hours. Despite upcoming family plans, I remain committed to sharing my music on the East End all summer long.

Anthony, tell us about your real estate business and how you entered the East End market.

Anthony: I had the opportunity to work in the Hamptons two and a half years ago thanks to my friend Sean Manning from the Oversouth Team. He mentored me, proving that with dedication and discipline, anything is achievable. Transitioning from admiring East End homes to listing properties from Dune Road in Westhampton Beach to East Hampton has been a fulfilling career journey.

Share a few of your favorite spots on the East End.

Anthony & Bella: We have a strong affinity for Montauk’s dining scene, particularly Harvest on Fort Pond, Inlet Seafood, and the laid-back ambiance of The Point. The American Hotel in Sag Harbor is another top choice for its upscale dining experience. As we await our July arrival, we look forward to introducing our little one to Ditch Plains Beach and indulging in delicious poke bowls from the Ditch Witch truck. Mako’s Vintage is a treasured gem for unique finds in Montauk. Ice cream memories at Shock Ice Cream in Westhampton Beach and mornings with the best egg sandwich at Sterlington Deli in Greenport have also left lasting impressions on us. These local establishments have become cherished memories that we will forever hold dear.
