Love this place

For me, this is a local Restaurant and bar, so I like to frequent it - went there today for lunch. I had the 6 oz fillet beef tips, served with parmesan mashed potatoes. Yummy! It was as close to gourmet as you can get.

We went to celebrate a friend's 30th Birthday. The food was absolutely phenomenal. Out of eight people with different dishes, we were all pleasantly surprised by both the presentation and the taste! I don't visit Birmingham often, but the next time I'm there, I'll definitely stop by again. I will say, I don't know much about the demographics of the... More

....what an amazing disappointment. Great service, great drinks but frankly very bad food. Oysters were old, bread was stale, olive oil was like Crisco, and Chicken Marsala sauce tasted like sugar ? Replacement filet good but sauce was sweet and sour ....say what ? They need an overhaul in kitchen.

My husband and I were here for date night and had reservations. The bar is right as you enter and very loud and got louder as the evening progressed. Our server was excellent. Our food was interestingly prepared. I had the eggplant Parmesan which came out looking like a stack of pancakes with a stick holding it together but it... More

The parking lot outside of this restaurant is always full, and I can understand why. We had a very good dinner at this restaurant this past week. We started with the crab cake appetizer which was excellent. For the main course I had a very tasty Manicotti, and my wife enjoyed her entre and had enough left over for the... More

Loved the ambience!! The chicken Alfredo and rib eye were excellent. The moscato wine we had was amazing!! The white chocolate bread pudding--there are no words for this incredible dessert!!! I highly recommend. Romantic dinner. I wouldn't bring kids because it's not that type of atmosphere in my opinion.

Our church offers a rotating dinner deal where 8 or so people get together for dinner either hosted at a home or in a restaurant. Twice, we've hosted the Dutch-treat dinner at Bellini's. Both times it's exceeded expectations with wonderful food (salmon, steak, lasagna were all choices we had), friendly service and a nice atmosphere. At times, it was a... More

My goodness this place is good! First trip I just asked the waitress what app she liked best...she told me, I ordered it was great! So I asked her about an entree' she recommended the meatballs and pappardelle...again, awesome! The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that it is so dang loud! I can overlook that for...
