Driving through downtown Lexington a few nights ago, I noticed that there were no lights on at Bellini's. Sadly, although it was a lovely restaurant with really good food and service, it appears that the longstanding unfinished construction site across the street has had a negative effect. Bellini's is now closed for business.

Looking forward to visiting a local restaurant we have enjoyed in the past. Walking in the door it was obvious something had changed. Restaurant was empty on a Friday night at 7. The food was horrible, service was even worse. Ceaser salad tasted like diesel fuel. Risotto entree was like glue. My daughters pasta sauce tasted as if poured from... More

We would have had a better meal at Olive Garden. I'll give the chef the benefit of the doubt and surmise he was a having a bad night, a very bad night. It's not easy to ruin a Caesar Salad, but by trying to be clever and "grill" the romaine it tasted like it had been held over a gas... More

I travel to Lexington periodically and have eaten at Bellini’s a number of times, often with a group. I can say I’ve never had a bad meal. The last time was a few days ago with some colleagues. With the server’s encouragement, several of us had the caprese salad with excellent mozzarella over delicious heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil, and balsamic... More

The food was excellent and there was some mixup with staff in the kitchen. The manager took care of our meals for us and that was very much appreciated. Obviously they care about the food they serve and their customers.

We were a group of 8 coming from business meetings. When we arrived, we found our reservation had been cancelled but the staff declared it to be no problem and immediately started putting tables together. Thankfully it wasn't too busy that evening. Shared appetizers including scallops and calamari were very good and we should have ordered more. Entrées including lamb,... More

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
