Great food and attentive service.

My daughter and I ate here while in B'ham. after a visit to UAB medical center. The ravioli was very good and my daughter's salad with steak was outstanding. Our server, Samantha was very attentive and accommodating. We hope to return.

Bellini's Ristorante & Bar bills itself as fine dining and a neighborhood gathering space. It doesn't quite fulfill either bill, but that does not mean that it's not a worthwhile visit. The bar is shoved into the front door and is cramped. There is no waiting space. In the dining area, tables are oddly arranged with many chairs protruding into... More

Thank you for taking time to leave feedback on your recent visit. I am very sorry to hear we need not meet your standards as a fine dining restaurant.

Enjoyed the Chefs feature and ravioli entrees. The Italian salad was delicious and plentiful. Our server was very attentive and offered great suggestions. Will definitely be back to try other menu options.

Bellini's has been on our list of favorites for a long time. It is both a location for a special dinner and for everyday dining. The standard menu items as the pastas, lasagna, and manicotti are priced for the casual diner that wants a low to moderate priced meal. The menu specials, on the other hand can be very expensive...

I met some family here for dinner one weekend and they wanted to eat here. I like Italian and gave it a try. I guess they were having an off night. I ordered cheese ravioli and when it came out it was still cold. They took it back and and gave me new but it was not that good. The... More

Love this place. Great Italian food and wonderful atmosphere. Chicken Marsala is so good that it's what I always order. White chocolate bread pudding rivals anything I've had in New Orleans.

My husband and I ventured into Bellini's not really knowing what would be in store other than Italian cuisine. We were pleased with the patio seating which was available without a reservation, and our server Jade was courteous, attentive, and worked with the kitchen staff to accommodate our special requests. The wine list was extensive and offered a wide range... More

I used to love this place during the first few years it was open, but I've noted subtle changes that have taken it from a five star down to a two. The bread is different... kind of a generic variety white loaf, sliced. Sometimes stale. It used to be 100% better. And the dipping oil with herbs also used to... More
