Description: Classic Italian dinning and Wine Spectator award winner since...
Classic Italian dinning and Wine Spectator award winner since 1999 Bellisio’s restaurant conjures up images of highly skilled chefs, fine wines, superb service, and fresh Italian food. And while all this is most certainly true, one must not forget that Bellisio’s is above all an experience. An exceptional dining experience, to be precise, but one that takes place in a casual atmosphere reminiscent of the quaint eateries and wine bars of the Italian countryside. And no wonder. The experience is fashioned after the small village of Bellisio, Italy, home to the owner’s ancestry. Imported direct from Italy are the beauty, comfort, romance, and glorious recipes. Specialty dishes include perfectly prepared pasta dishes using the finest imported and local ingredients; fennel roasted rack of pork; homemade risotto dishes; grilled steaks; shrimp; seafood; and a fresh catch feature every day. All served with a world class wine menu to match. Bellisio’s has received Wine Spectator’s prestigious “Best of Award of Excellence” every year since we opened in 1999. It’s a simple, colorful, elegant, and exceptional dining experience.

This is a nice restaurant for couples. I loved the wine flights they offered and the food is always good. The staff can provide good wine recommendations and they always let you try before you buy.

We had a nice family dinner on the patio on a beautiful July night. We all enjoyed the fresh bread and our meals (steak for my husband, pasta for the kids and I). The highlight were the wine flights which were a fun activity for us while we waited for our meals to arrive.

Had a 4 course lunch to celebrate an occasion while in Duluth. Appetizer (eggplant), salad (Tuscan), entries (2 pasta dishes) & desser (ttortoni) were very good. Smells from other entries being served made us wish we could order something additional. Only suggestions word be: 1) add candied fruit to the tortoise I as dates only make it too chewy; 2)... More

We are from Colorado. My wife has family in Duluth, it is very enjoyable in the summer months. We both have different opinions on Bellisio's. She thinks it is the best, I on the other hand think it is very average. I love good Italian food but, think if there were an Olive Garden next door to this place they... More

I've been to Italy and I've been to Bellisio's Italian restaurant... And Bellisio's still takes the cake! I visit Duluth once a year and the incentive is that I get to eat at this restaurant at least two times that weekend. The wine flights are super yummy and selection is unbelievable. Location is superb- right in downtown and has an... More

Without a reservation on a Friday evening, we were able to get a table very quickly. The interior was beautiful and had low lighting for a calming dining experience. I was there with my Mom and two teenage kids. The server was very helpful with our menu questions and was very attentive to our needs. The food had excellent flavor... More

I was in Duluth on a recent weekday and just had to stop at Bellisio's again because of how much I enjoyed it on a previous visit. The hostess was very friendly and showed me to an outdoor table on the patio. It is so nice to eat on the patio here! You can't really see the lake from here,... More

My son and I were bouncing around the North Shore in early July, 2015 and decided to stay in Duluth near the aerial lift bridge. We stayed at the Inn on Lake Superior (loved it) and went walking around for a place to eat. The young lady at the front desk of the hotel didn't appear to have the same... More
