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

Ate dinner twice, once inside and once outside on the patio. Both times, the food, wines and service were exceptional. Don't waste your time searching for a better place. This is it!

The chicken and asparagus risotto was fabulous. The wine flights are a terrific option. Very enjoyable, but expensive, especially since the salads are a la carte. But most entrees do come with potatoes and vegetable.

Wine is the star at this northern Italian spot. Several hundred bottles on the list, and multiple choices of wine flights- 4 wines to sample. Has won Wine Spectator Award of Excellence many times. Don't show up without a reservation-it is always packed, even during the week. If you haven't dined there before , ask the server to go through... More

Ate here the weekend of the Northshore Inline weekend. Hostess asked if we had reservations and I said no. It would be a least a 45 minute wait for the dining room and a 30 minute wait in the lounge. We decided to wait. It took about 15 minutes to be seated in the dining room. Service was very efficient.... More

Until recently, Duluth just didn't have another good option for Italian. We've been here for special occasions and this restaurant isn't bad but Va Bene is just better. The staff was friendly and the food is OK but for the price I'd go somewhere else. I think you can get more for your money.

Reading some of these reviews, I have to wonder how much wine was drank! This place was horrible! The service, if you can even call it service, was horrific! We sat for over 15 minutes before we even met our waitress. At that point it took over an hour to get our food. The waitress only had four customers, but... More

I am relatively new to Duluth and have only been to Bellisio's four times. The food has always been great, the service very good. It is the only establishment in Duluth that I would describe as the least little bit "upscale". Being in the tourist section of town it is either fairly new or fairly well-kept. My first choice to...

Overpriced really, but posh atmosphere and some creative dishes. I suspect the tiramisu may be a food service item...The deepfried zucchini appetizer is very yummy though!
