We arrived twenty minutes before closing time, but we weren't at all rushed and the "prosciutto con fichi" was really delicious. I've been here for lunch before in the dining room and have enjoyed a fresh salad with the many women who meet for lunch there, but I'll go back again later in the evening.

We visited Bellisimo for my birthday dinner and we were not disappointed. As stated above the eggplant Parmesan was the best in Winnipeg. It was crisp ,grease free and the tomato sauce was very tasty. The pasta special was equally delicious. It was comprised of spaghetti with a marscarpone and butternut squash sauce with chicken and pancetta. Service was very... More

My co worker and I made plans to attend this restaurant on Sept 29, 2014. I had attended first and let the waitress know I was waiting for my friend to arrive. The waitress said, I am the only one on so you will have to look for her. The waitress put the wine list in front and the food... More

Went there last week for dinner. The service was good but very slow, waited 10 minutes after finishing the meal before we saw the server again to order more drinks and get a dessert menu. The the décor is nice except the carpet is fitly or warn out between the rows by the kitchen and needs attention. I had a... More

Dear Customer, I’m sorry to hear that you had slow service at our restaurant last week. We don’t know who your server was, but will address the issue in general with our front of house staff. Sometimes our servers like to let the customers sit and settle in after a meal, but they still should be checking in and reading... More

Bellisimo is definitely a hidden gem. In a little strip mall on waverly avenue it is definitely my favourite spot for an authentic Italian meal.

We dined for dinner, for a family birthday. We shared excellent brushetta and calamari for appetizers. All had pasta for their main courses and enjoyed their meals. The service was exceptional - attentive without hovering. We will definitely be back!

Great food, nice ambience, friendly excellent service. The Veal Limone was excellent, as was the restaurant self made Gnocchi. The dinner rolls and salads were also very good and we both enjoyed the Potato and Cheese Soup. Will definitely go back again next time I am in Winnipeg.

I really enjoy the food at this restaurant and the fact that they offer gluten fee pasta..... All food is freshly made (which does takes longer to make) but utterly delicious.... Gluten free pasta takes even longer so be prepared to sit back and wait ... Well worth it, but I would suggest that if you leave at least. 1.5... More

We went to Bellissimo for a family birthday. Server was courteous, food was mediocre, not cheap. The women's bathrooms weren't working and our party had to go subway next door.
