Back in the Deise once again and feeling peckish we couldn't pass up on the opportunity to try Bellissimo especially after the owners (Tony) very quick response to my last review. Through the impressive doors once more and greeted by a very welcoming waitress who showed us to a lovely table by the window. Drinks promptly returned to our table... More

I've always loved a trip to Waterford and decided to finish another most enjoyable day with a meal at bellissimo on the dunmore road. We didn't have a reservation but being early evening we'd give it a go. What an impressive door on entering the restaurant and a lovely spacious interior. We were greeted by the most friendly young waiter... More

"Ouch" is right !!! What a terrible experience that that was and one that could never be excused. It is true that we were fully booked over most of the weekend just gone, but my view is customer service is paramount , and we fell well short of the mark on this occasion. I apologise for the way you were... More

This place has great potential as a neighborhood dining spot, casual yet suitable for special occasions too. I had previously dined at its former location in Ardkeen and enjoyed that experience some years back. The feng shui, orientation, big picture windows, generous dining area, generous portions, food presentation and staff are all terrific ingredients. There's a nice welcome and a... More

Was looking forward to eating in Belissimo, however ended up not even staying for the meal. Ordered a cocktail with my girlfriend while waiting for the food, which she provided I.D. for (we're both in our 20's and wouldn't expect to have to bring I.D. to a restaurant). When I took a sip of her cocktail, the manager proceeded to... More

Dear Sir, Sorry to hear that your experience with us wasn't as you or indeed us would have wished for. Liquor licencing laws require us to observe a strict code of conduct when it comes to the sale of alcohol and we do take this seriously, as you'd expect. We must always air on the side of caution. This is... More

My family and I went to this restaurant a week ago for a birthday celebration meal. It was "Bellissimo" no other words can describe the service, the food and the ambience, not to mention the décor. It was truly an Italian experience. I thought I was in Italy! I will go back there again soon.

We went here last week to celebrate a wedding anniversary and enjoyed it. Starters of crab cakes and shrimp risotto were average. Main courses were good, chicken with pasta and a steak. We had a lemon cheesecake for dessert, it was delicious. Constructively I think the wine list could be improved on, there is a limited choice of reds. They... More
