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.

Bellisio's has a great menu and a phenomenal wine collection. BUT their annual zinfandel appreciation party is to die for... The only reason anyone would come to the upper Midwest!

We had 2 different kinds of chicken and they were both great - she had the roasted and I had the Chicken Alla Milanese. Great and a lot more that we could eat even without an appetizer. Took it home and was just as good leftover.

Lovely place to have a fabulous Italian dinner in Canal Park. There is a small outdoor dining area to people watch while enjoying the many varieties of Italian wine flights.

My husband & I recently lucked out by being in Duluth during a city-wide restaraunt event in which various restaraunts had 3-course prixe fixe specials ($25 pp, not including beverage or tip). The regular menu is rather high priced (but it IS Canal Park) but the food is indeed reliably good and the servers are cheerful & knowledgable. We could... More

My sister and sister-in-law and I went out for a relaxing Saturday night dinner. We were greeted and seated for 6:45 pm reservation. Maddie was our delightfully, sweet and efficient server. We had wine flights, some food restrictions that Maddie was very helpful with. She never let our water glasses get empty, she timed the food and did it all... More

The food was excellent and the service was too. The prices were great. Especially with the white linen tablecloths and napkins. Just a nice treat to be sure.
