This seems like a place the upper crust locals go out to eat and be seen. Two people, two entrees, one glass of wine and we spent $60+. Risotto was great, Italian baked chicken good but not that special. The wine was great!!

One of the best meals I have ever had. Shrimp and asparagus risotto. The first time I have ever had it and I would gladly drive the 2 hours back to have it again.

We were here for a cocktail and wine. We were amazed!. We had the limoncello martini. AMAZING! We wanted a snack so we ordered the bacon, lettuce and fried green tomato appetizer. We are not foodies. This was the kind of snack where you take a bite and set down your fork and say...WOW. It was just that good. The... More

I travel to Duluth about twice a year on business. This is my "go to" restaurant. Excellent wine selections. Excellent bar staff. Food is always very good. Not sure why it's not ranked higher in Duluth. Highly recommended.

I never really understood the hype with this restaurant. We've gone several times, always when invited by friends and we always leave with the same feeling of wondering why people think this is a nice restaurant with good food??? Hopefully friends won't pick this place for a gathering in the future. We went on Monday for 1/2 price wine night... More

I just had dinner at Bellisio's and the food was absolutely fantastic. I had the the wild Alaskan salmon and it was the best fish I have ever had. Topped it off with a few Lake Superior ales. Highly recommended to all

We visit Duluth every year and always stay in the Canal area as it is a good location for hotels and restaurants. We've found that our consistant favorite is Bellisio's Italian Restaurant. The food is always well prepared and made with fresh ingredients. The wait staff is always pleasant and attentive and the wine selection is one of the best... More

If you're hungry as a northern bear, or a smidge hungry for a treat and a fine glass of wine, try Bellisio's in Canal Park, Duluth MN. After a long travel day, we decided to just order a couple of appetizers and peruse the extensive wine menu. We asked the server for recommendations, and she did not disappoint! The "fried... More

My wife and I visited Bellisio's with no expectations while on vacation. We left extremely impressed!!! The meals had outstanding flavor and generous portions (we enjoyed the sausage risotto and balsamic penne). The wine list is volumous, but the waitress recommended a pinot noir that that was perfect on its own and with the meal. A very enjoyable evening!!! If... More

Bellisio's offers a warm intimate atmosphere, with excellent food that tastes fresh, no reheated prefab stuff here! In addition to this, they have one of the most extensive wine lists I've seen, rounded out with polite, attentive, but not pushy service. A must try!
