This had to be one of the most romantic dinners we have had as a couple! The atmosphere is incredible, the food was absolutely delicious (my husband is from the east coast and knows Italian and Bellisio's can hold its own against any of them), the service was excellent and great wine! Love it!! Will go back!!!!

If for no other reason, go for the wine list. It is out of this world. I would also recommend the fried green tomatoes and the pasta with the balsamic vinegar sauce. It is amazing!!

Last time we ate here we weren't overly impressed, but we were in the mood for Italian and staying in Canal Park so this was our only option. The food was FANTASTIC this time, so good that we went back 2 days later and had the same exact meal for lunch. The caprese was one of the better ones we've... More

Ate here for lunch...very nice decor, fancy but also feels casual. They had outdoor tables but I ate inside. I ordered the fettucine alfredo. It was delcious. They also had an impressive wine selection but I chose ice tea instead. One more thing...close to the canal park hotels. You don't have to drive if you don't want ! Would recommend... More

I brought my gf here when we visited Dututh recently. As Italian restaurants go, this place is OK..I tried the rigatoni balsamico and it was good. My gf got Spinach and Alredo Ravioli. She wasn't crazy about it, but I ate some and thought it was somewhere between OK and good. Our favorite part of the meal was actually the... More

Our party of four had mixed reacitions to our first visit. Two thought was elegant and romantic, one was indifferent, and the curmudgeon (me) thought it was pompous and overpriced. Two unarguable points: on a Thursday night, the place absolutely emptied out at 8:00. It was full when we got there at 7:15, and empty an hour plus later. AND... More

We got a coupon for a free wine flight per person but because there were two in our group interested we asked for the special benefit of using one coupon for two people and after some negotiation the manager Kristin granted us our request. The appetizers and the main courses were very flavorful and well developed. Our waitress Tracy was... More

This is a pleasant and nice Italian place , but it is very over-priced for what you get. The wine list isn't as extensive as one would expect and the selections are over-priced compared with restaurants in Minneapolis. If you are into good beer and like a good burger, I would suggest Fitger's Brewhouse. different atmosphere but a much better... More

We recently went to Duluth and finally managed to get to Bellisios. We've heard lots of good reviews previously. The restaurant had a nice ambience and although the tables were fairly close together, we didn't hear their conversations and it wasn't too loud. The menu had a good selection of entrees and they have an excellent wine list. We had... More

My wife and I have visited Duluth once or twice a year for the past 10 years, and we have always gone to Bellisio's at least once during our trips (sometimes twice). The service is second to none, the ambiance is great, and the food cannot be matched. The fettuccine alfredo is the best that you will have anywhere. They... More
