I wanted to take mhy co-workers to a nice Italian Resturant in Birmingham. I tried two before this one and they were either booked or closed so we went with Bellini since it had good reviews. The only thing that I can say was the wine was good. The food was bland, no one finished their meal. Huge disapointment!

This restaurant is amazing. The food is top notch, service excellent and the martinis are incredible. We come here a lot and often sit at the bar for dinner. The carpaccio appetizer is beyond exceptional.

This restaurant never fails my high expectation since our first weekend trip a couple of years ago. We manage to get back to the city once every three to four months and we always dine at Billinis!!! Outstanding !!! One in a million!!! A must!!

Local place that is small quaint and dark. Few of the patrons that were older asked for a flashlight. Our waiter was excellent along with the rest of the staff from clearing plates to making sure the water glasses were full. Started with the wedge salad that was excellent. It is large so you may want to share. Great presentation... More

We live in Vestavia and usually don't venture that far down 280 for lunch or dinner, but man is it worth the short drive. Everything was superb, from the atmosphere to the staff and let's not forget the food. The chef created culinary masterpieces that still make my mouth water weeks later. The bread pudding is not to be missed.

I would recommend the Wood Grilled Caesar Salad ($8) & the Sautéed Spinach ($4). They are both excellent. The bread is sad. Bellini's, please change this! It's ok to be different, but this does not work. Stay away from the Margarita Pizza ($10) and the Rigatoni alla Romano ($15). The pizza had too much cheese and sauce. Only ate half... More

Good fish and steak, good service, good wine. It's a fairly small place, and gets crowded, so get reservations, easy to do online. Might be less crowded during the week. I especially liked the crabcake appetizer.

I went to Bellinis searching for any good place to have dinner, the food is awesome but unfortunately I didn't know that I should make a reservation to get a table, so the only option was to stay at the bar with the full dinner service

I live close to this restaraunt and I visit it frequently, not because it is close by but because the food is some of the best in the city and the service is generally excellent. Whatever you order, save room got the bread pudding. It is absolutely the best. Make a reservation.
