We started with a Cosmo and Manhattan. My husband said the Manhattan was OK. My Cosmo was too sweet so I exchanged it for a wine. Our server was very poor! I had a fillet with Parmesan mashed potatoes. It was very good but rich. My husband had a fillet with mac jalapeno cheese. He said it was spicy but... More

I like to laugh at the places in Birmingham that claim to be authentic Italian or even good Italian. I know good Italian, I am one. My boyfriend's parents took us, and I was intrigued since his mother raved about the place being the best Italian she's had in Birmingham. As we walked up to the door, I noticed the... More

I've been wanting to try this place for awhile now....I'm just sorry I didn't go sooner! We had drinks and appetizers for a little date night. The calamari was wonderful, the wedge salad is TO DIE FOR (but ask for that amazing dressing on the side or tell them to go easy or they will drown it), and the crab... More

Great food. Friendly atmosphere. I uploaded a pic of my Italian sausage pizza. Just great. I go without the spicy peppers, but the red and yellow tomatoes - great!

Had a small surprise Birthday dinner and it was "Fantastic" All couples raved about the service and the food. The host made it very special for us. We have eaten here many times before, but, this night was special and Bellinis made it a great time. Thank You

We have planned to try out Bellini's but since we live on the opposite side of town never took on the trek. We finally went for a birthday celebration and had a great time. The atmosphere was surprisingly great for a restaurant in a strip mall. The service was very good, and the food was very good. (Atmosphere 25 of... More

Brought my wife here for a cozy dinner. Small restaurant, but well appointed. We received great service. Calamari app was ample and delicious. My Gorgonzola wedge salad was so good that I wanted to lick the plate! My wife had cheese ravioli while I had the veal parmigiana. Both were packed with flavor and presented beautifully. The somewhat cramped dining... More

Visiting for a leisurely lunch with a friend it was an excellent choice. Parking was right outside and it was quiet and pleasant inside. I had Chicken Breast Alla Scarpariello, sauteed with mushrooms in an absolutely delicious rosemary, butter garlic and white wine sauce. It is located in a shopping center, but once inside is a fine dining place.

We have tried Bellini’s twice and have been disappointed. The décor and ambiance is great; the service was top flight. The dinner prices are not modest. But we really came for the food and, unfortunately, it needed help. The bread and dipping oil is perhaps the most tasteless I have ever consumed. The entrees had great visual appeal, but three...
