Parking was a bit of a hunt however once you sat down and opened your menu you know it was worth it. We went for lunch and they have a three course menu (you can also choose with wine paring) as well as their regular menu. It was a tough choice however our mouths watered when we read the panini...

Serendipity at Bellanico Personal tastes and entirely subjective judgements often make the difference between "liking" and "disliking" a restaurant. An acquaintance had spoken ravenously of Bellanico, but we did not know his tastes well. Given recent disappointments with eateries recommended by various individuals, we were reluctant to make a reservation for a Friday night, and approached Bellanico as supplicants who... More

Absolutely excellent! One of us had the tasting menu, the other selected an appetizer and entrée - that worked out perfectly. Everything was fabulous, nothing was even a tad off. Service very friendly if a little bit slow (but not uncomfortably so). The arugula faro salad I wouldn't mind as a larger serving for lunch some time. Who knew a... More

We live within walking distance. I think it is maybe the best restaurant of the about seven restaurants in that area. We have been there several times for dinner. That have a full bar and outside seating. We like to get several dishes and share.

Bellancio is great but this review is from our recent experience. After a very long Monday our party of 4 (one of which was my 8 year old nephew) arrived for our 6:00 reservation for what we hoped would be a quick dinner. Our quick meal turned into 2 ½ hours and not because we were lingering! I'd say that... More

Wonderful lunch experience at this neighborhood gem. We've never been disappointed and this is our "go-to" place to take visiting friends and out-of-towners.

This was my first time here and had a fabulous dinner. Some highlights were the grilled pork shop, fried quash blossoms, and the taster dessert menu. We also had a great pasta dish but can't remember the name. Make a reservation and enjoy.

My friend who lives in Oakland chose this restaurant as a place for a classmates luncheon. I had red russet gnocchi with pesto sauce that was to die for. My Oakland friend had the frittata which she absolutely loved and our other friend had the pasta dish with sauce, bacon pieces & meatballs which he raved about. Over a bottle... More

Delicious! Excellent food. The 4 course tasting menu is a great value ($34 during the week) and offers 2 options per course. Wine pairing is an additional $17. Wine list features both Northern & Southern, and there are also wine flights 3 for between $15-$16.50. Service is attentive without being overbearing. In addition to the tasting menu, dishes are grouped... More

Great food inspired by the cuisine of Northern Italy using locally-sourced seasonal produce. There are always a few very satisfying vegetarian options on the menu. The service and ambiance are comfortable and make for a very relaxed and enjoyable dining experience.
