My husband made reservations for us to enjoy my birthday dinner here. We were seated promptly and we had wonderful service. Both of us highly enjoyed our dinner entree choices and our drinks from the bar were great as well. The food was amazing, but the desserts were even better! I loved my tiramisu and my husband had the white... More

I first visited this restaurant probably about 6 months ago. Since then, it's turned into a weekend affair. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is great...service even better. I'm the type that typically orders the same thing at restaurants, mainly because I find something I like and stick with it. Bellinis, however, is different. It's the ONLY restaurant that I've...

My husband and I and many of our friends meet at Bellini's to have drinks and to eat. We do this often. Mostly because it is one of the nicer places to eat in our area. It has an outdoor area which is a huge plus to all of us -- they have actually expanded it a little bit. It's... More

Debbie, Thank you for your review Bellinis. As you are a long time customer I appreciate feedback from both you and Chuck. I am truly sorry the fries were not up to Bellinis standards the night you were in for dinner. Our fries are cut fresh daily before service and fried to order. Our policy at Bellinis is to never...

The space is small, center tables are separated by privacy curtains hanging from the ceiling, creating a more intimate setting. We were seated immediately and the restaurant was not full around noon. I enjoyed the cran-walnut salad and was going to order a pasta dish, until my server kindly advised me that the salad is entree sized two dishes would... More

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!
