We went on a Friday night prior to a show at the Civic Theatre. I saw fellow reviewer's comments on service and can only say, that was not our experience. We were seated promptly (without reservations) and our waiter, "Freddy", was there in a minute. He did the beverage solicitation and our drinks arrived in less than 3 minutes. We... More

OK, first time in Allentown, with a buddy on business and we agree on not wanting to eat in hotels. We roamed around near the center, and came across Bellissimo. Looked good, we went in. We got a non-greeting by someone, possibly the owner, whose cool, non-caring response to our arrival made me want to turn around, it was that... More

The owner made his rounds..not even once looking our direction. Waitors and waitresses were going to every table around us..boxing up leftovers..giving out checks..collecting money but not one person came to ask... More

We were there for dinner. There was empty table, but nobody was cleaning it up. Waited forever to get a table. When we sit down, no waitor came by and asked anything. Evetyone seemed so busy doing something. Finally we orderded and the food was goood. Maybe next time we will try a little earlier.

The Bellissimo Ristorante is one of the few restaurants in the Allentown area that serves excellent fare every time. Portions are on the large side but that's Allentown. Daily specials are worth asking about and trying even if you, like me have a house specialty. Service isn't speedy but if you want fast food, go to a fast food franchise.... More

I took my family for dinner for the first time to Bellissimo today. We live nearby and my husband had always wanted to go to try the brick oven pizza. The atmosphere was nice, a little bit too dark for me, but everything looked very clean which is always a plus. Our waitress was very attentive and patient with our... More

A friend told us that the portions are large, so each couple decided to share an entree and an appetizer. All was good. And, they actually fill up the wine glass.

Enjoyed a celebration yesterday, total of 6 people, we were put in a booth with a table on the end, it made the dinning experience a wee bit cramped. Other than that I loved the food, appetizers bruschetta and calamari were good, wine list was extensive and the entrees were very good I had the pork shank, which was a... More

Lasagna was delicious. Pomodora on angel hair pasta was great. Homemade bread was top knotch. Server wasnt great with getting us refills on drinks. And when asked he brought diet instead of regular. When I asked him to take it back, he was annoyed. Salad was good but wish there were croutons on it. Atmosphere cozy and romantic. We drove... More

Dinner at Bellissimo is a real treat! Starting with the fabulous and not-to-be-missed garlic mini rolls, to the fresh pastas and seafoods, to the excellent wine selection, and the very appealing dessert tray (we never seem to have room for dessert) there is little not to like about this Allentown fixture. Our recent visit was excellent. The hostess greeted and... More
