Exquisite Italian food with attention to detail. The best ingredients used and you can taste every morsel. A purely divine eating experience .. The food is a work of art and good portions too. I can't think of anywhere else where the standard of food is at this level. Talented chef with... read more

Average food. Menu lacked originality. Good service. Considering the size of the bill, we were underawed with the menu.

We went on 12th May to celebrate my birthday. We had a three course meal for myself, husband and 11yr old ddaughter. None of us left a scrap and the meals were, as always top quality. The friendly service could not be better and all needs attended to. If you want a really good Italian meal go to Launch Banca.... More

Absolutely fantastic! On April 17th I celebrated my 50th Birthday along with 41 friends and family and things could not have been more perfect! Everything was planned in meticulous detail and the tables looked wonderful as we arrived. After being served to Bellini's, our guests were shown to their seats by the excellent team of waiters. Our guests were very... More

I ordered the pork with creamy mash and cabbage. Does not sound much but I can say it was the tastiest and... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by a friend. It did not disappoint! I had the chicken livers to start and then the lasagne. Both were delicious, but the lasagne was a real revelation. It is made with slow cooked pork, which is then shredded and incorporated into the lasagne! Just yummy! There si also a cookery school onsite which I... More
