Went to Bellini's for a business dinner with coworkers and was very disappointed. The menu had a decent variety but being spun off as an Italian joint is a joke. Has some pasta dishes and steaks and seafood. The ravioli was swimming in a sauce that tasted like it came out of a can. The bread was disgusting. A coworker... More

Thank you for your recent review. I appreciate all positive and negative feedback from our guests. Without identifying potential opportunities we could not continue to grow and get better. It is extremely disappointing when any of my guest has a bad experience. We spend months training our staff to provide the highest level of food and service. I offer my... More

The whole dining experience was outstanding. Ate there with girl friend and her family. The menu was extensive. Very accommodating to some dietary restrictions. The place shined and the decor was elegant. Ate at a leisurely pace. The bill was $190 plus tip. not bad for meals plus wine. Would go back in an instant.

I had the rather underwhelming experience of eating at this local establishment last week. The atmosphere is nice and the service was average but the food was quite unappealing. I ordered the "grouper special" and was served a tasteless, mushy fish that was obviously frozen. The "set up" consisted of what was billed as "cheese infused" grits and what was... More

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
