With a love for simple and classic cooking techniques with good quality traditional ingredients, Bellini welcomes diners for light bites, lunch and dinner.Brought to Liverpool by four of Italy’s most talented imports to the Northwest’s cuisine industry – Bruno, Carlo, Giovanni and Raffaele - Bellini brings the hearty Italian charm in a modern setting with clever mirrors, clean lines and exposed brickwork. Having nurtured their craft and honed their experience through years of culinary and mixology training, the four restaurateurs have perfected family recipes and the result is a seasonal menu that takes a contemporary approach to conventional flavours and combinations. With many of the ingredients coming direct from Italy, everything is made in-house ensuring Bellini is a treasure trove of truly regional treats.

Way too much salt

We had an early evening meal in what looked like a very pleasant restaurant. Very welcoming friendly staff. We enjoyed our starters and wine. All was going well. We then had our mains - penne with salmon and spag bol. Neither was edible due to the extraordinary amount of salt. We complained and... read more

My partner had never been to an Italian restaurant before and was so glad that we chose this as our first. We chose two course offer for only £12.95 each, fantastic! My partner had spag bol for his starter and thoroughly enjoyed it, he's often a fussy eater but it went down a treat even with the added herbs. I... More

I went here with my boyfriend after previously visiting this restaurant last year. For starters we were sat in the cocktail bar, they were obviously trying to rake in the money for Valentines by putting extra 2 tables in there. I already felt like our meal was not very special at all. No body came to light our candle, and... More

We were recommend this by the Hotel concierge, so we though we would give it a try. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was cooked from fresh, the starter was very good and the main was good but a little bit salty for me. As I do not have salt on any food I find I can... More

Food wasn't too bad, me and my boyfriend ordered some bruschettas-delicious! And 2 spaghetti carbonara, which weren't that bad (we had better carbonara!). But we were so disappointed on the service. There were only 2 waiters, one of them mostly on the bar. Even 2 tables next to us waited to order food and drinks way too much! We wanted... More

This was my second visit within a year.....it's still fantastic. Service was excellent, food out of this world. I always worry when going back to somewhere whether it will be as good as the first time....it was!! I wish I lived closer to Liverpool so I could come here more often. My only little gripe...and it is really small...the side... More
