Nice Surprise!

I purchased a Groupon Offer for Bellissimo to use whenever I was in the area. I was pleasantly surprised by the quaint ambiance and courteous, accommodating staff because of the location. I felt like I was in an Italian countryside instead of near the middle of Allentown. The menu provided an... read more

Mom found this place cruising around on Google. Decided we would stop here today for lunch & I'm so glad we did. The staff was very friendly, the food was very good. We both had the chicken parmigian. It was awesome! The hot bread was full of garlic & was good too!!

As a couple, we really enjoyed our Saturday dinner at Bellissimo's. They have a small parking lot behind the restaurant and there was lots of street parking available in the neighborhood. The inside of the restaurant is nicely furnished, but it can be quite noisy, so we elected to sit outside under the umbrella tables; this was quite enjoyable, although... More

We were a party of 10. We were told that separate checks, or even 2 checks would not be possible. The orders got messed up, food was delivered unevenly. When the check came, we divided it and then were told that some of the wines had been left off. The waitress grabbed the check and presented another one. This precipitated... More

We love going to bellissimo's. We love their food. Whenever we have guests from out of town we take them here. Never disappointed. Garlic rolls are #1. Plenty of food for lunch the next day. Every pasta dish we've tried was good. Hubby especially enjoyed the eggplant rolatini.

I live very near by this restaurant. They server excellent Italian fare better than most. But the last TWO times I visited this restaurant, the service was horrible. We went two weeks ago, when there was a large party of 15 or so. We waited nearly an hour for our food, which finally arrived grossly undercooked. We spoke with the... More

Though we live in northern New England, my wife and I have dined more than a dozen times at Bellissimo, sometimes just for the two of us, or with a group. When we visit Allentown, we always dine there. The garlic rolls are to kill for! The food is excellent. The wine list is very reasonable but not fancy. The... More

We stayed in town for the weekend after coming in from NJ for a concert. Last night happened to be Valentines Day 2015. We had no plans for dinner and no reservations. We rode by this restaurant. It looked inviting so we stopped in. Unfortunately for us they were jam packed full with reservations and we couldnt get a table.... More

After reading some of the reviews, I was hesitant to go. But a few coworkers at the plant I was visiting recommended I go. I can't judge the experiences of others, but the service was great for my visit. The staff was helpful and knowledgable and I never had to wait for anything, other than for dinner to settle for...
