So we were given a groupon for what we thought was an prestigious high quality restaurant I was very disappointed having tried some of the newer establishments in town. This may have been a trendy spot years ago but it has lost its way with its high prices and average food. Service was slow and our waitress was barely visible... More

We had a gift certificate, so we decided to try it out. Our server was friendly and did a good job. I started out with the calamari and I loved it. The breading had a delicious flavor and I enjoyed the marinara dipping sauce as well. The temperature of the food was perfect. My entree could have been great if... More

My wife and I met family here for dinner. It was a fantastic meal with great service and an excellent wine list. The charcuterie was delicious but the mushroom spinach bruschetta was absolutely amazing! I had the osso buco and it was scrumptious, the best I have ever had. My wife had the chicken marsala and loved it! It was... More

We visited Bellini's Italian on 1-11-04, presented a valid Deal Saver Coupon, received a bill for the remaining amount. We added a 20% tip on the total pre-coupon amount (in good faith), then signed a hard copy bill for the proper amount. A couple of days later, in reviewing my credit union account, Bellini's had charged my account for the... More

Visiting from out of town. Found the restaurant to be stylish and food for the most part was good, but some flaws also. Bar staff was friendly and fun..like it a lot. Restaurant staff would go absent for periods of time. And arrival of the food itself was slow...I felt like I was in Euro restaurant. Bread was not served... More

Never was a huge fan of gnocchi until I had their mozzarella stuffed deep fried gnocchi with scallops. This dish was so tasty and different. Definitely a place to try for a date night experience.

My fiancé and I went here for a late Valentine's dinner. The food was supreme. Everything was fantastic and cooked to perfection. The only thing that was not to my liking was a mixed drink I ordered. However they went above and beyond to make it right. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

So, a friend recently told me that there are only two reasons that restaurants use groupon to promote their business....they are new or they are in financial trouble. Well, I am starting to believe that after a visit to a previous local gem. We ordered a scallop appetizer (three large scallops with two risotto cakes) for $17. The scallops had... More

I don't usually write a bad review or even restaurant reviews, but this experience was so disappointing I thought I should share it. I had had a memorably great meal there 9 years ago. My mistake was to try and relive the past, I guess. This restaurant menu still is in the past. Four out of five of the main... More

When Bellini's first opened in downtown Lexington I was impressed with the atmosphere and food. However, from my last 2 visits including last week I felt they are no longer making much of an effort. Granted, my spaghetti with marinara and eggplant was delicious as was my Caesar salad.Beyond that there was not much to rave about. The menu was... More
