Awesome Giant Meatballs :)

We are so glad that you enjoyed your lunch! Our Meatball recipe is a family recipe brought over from Italy. Defiantly one of our favorites as well! More

While Bellinis has a good selection of Italian dishes I opted for the Prodotto salad. It is a large salad including walnuts cranberries apples & blue cheese crumbles. I opted for the balsamic on the side & it was a thick paste not what I was used to. I was hoping there were some chef's specials but there were none.

I have eaten at Billings in both Clifton Park and the Latham location. I like Latham better. I also like Wheatfield's better than both of them. The service is really good but I'm just not crazy about the Bellinis red sauce. The meatballs are too big and greasy. I like a higher quality meat mix. The calamari isn't that great.... More

Its so dark in there you can hardly see your food. So many times he service is really really slow and the menu doesn't have a big selection. Maybe its me because many of my friends like it. I would take Olive Garden over it any day.

We always go to our favorite restaurants on our anniversary and birthdays. My wife looks for gluten free dinners since she has Celiac disease. The staff will always finds a dinner for her. It's a friendly place to be.

My wife and I eat here every month or so. Relaxing ambiance. Ciopinno is good but ask for extra clams instead of the mussels as I have found the mussels to be consistently of sub-par quality (small with very little meat). Othet than that I think you'll have a pleasant experience at this restaurant.

I have been several times to the Bellinis in Slingerlands, so was looking forward to a lunch at Bellinis in Clifton Park. My friend and I were disappointed with our meal and service. After being shown to a table in the very dark restaurant, we waited for quite awhile for menus even though the restaurant was not crowded. We ordered... More

Bellini's is a family (Morello) owned restaurant located in Clifton Park. Bellini's entered the dining scene several years ago and under solid management are rapidly expanding in the greater Albany area. On a wintry Friday night, my wife and I had a 6:45 pm reservation and were quickly seated by a very pleasant hostess. Shortly after being seated, we ordered... More
