My wife brought me for my birthday dinner. Our first visit. Very disappointed they were out of the scallops by the time we were there, but our reservation was at 815p, so that is somewhat understandable. They must have been really good. 🙁Just another reason to come back. Great seafood and portions are plenty! Would highly recommend as the menu... More

Thank you for the great review and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your very first visit to Bellinis Ristorante. It's disappointing that we were out of the Scallops Feature by the time your party arrived; that's the challenge of working with fresh seafood. 8:15pm is still too early in my opinion and we will work to better account for...

Crabcakes are excellent, with good sauce, and topped with colorful veggies. Bella recommended the evening crabcakes over the lunch ones, more for the money. The crabcake sliders were also fine. Bella is a fine server. House wine is very good, but cost $12 per glass, kind of high. Desserts were also very nice, and large portions. When we had been... More

Never ever should a guest have to ask for an espresso three times and still never get it...Especially if you claim to be an Italian Restaurant... Normally I don't review places that don't blow me away...mother always said," if you have nothing good to say about someone, then say nothing at all" or something like that... So, I will say...

Only go for the grilled Caesar salad and meatballs. Otherwise it's just cold bread and not what it used to be food. Sorry Bellini's. Service was subpar (if we even saw our waiter). It's crowded and noisy - even at lunch. Bread looked beautiful but was cold! My husband could not even eat the Italian wedding soup - it was... More

Highly rated restaurant. Recommendation made by hotel we were at. Trattoria type decor and ambiance. Not your standard Italian menu. Creative choices as well as standard fare. Two of us in group ordered New York strip which in both cases were so salty as to make them almost inedible. Because of the late hour we just plowed through and chose... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, but I'm saddened that it didn't live up to expectations. I wanted to know a little more about the food you ate on this particular evening. I only ask because we do not actually serve a NY Strip on our menu, and haven't in some time. We feel as though by using... More

Lunch with friends and we were all looking forward to eating here because we were here about 3 years ago and we really liked it. The service was wonderful. Our waiter was attentive and personable. The atmosphere is very quaint. Three of us ordered entrees with pasta and we all were disappointed that they were heavy on the pasta and... More

My wife and I had been traveling this week so when we could both be home I made reservations for Bellini's because I knew it would be a great night. We arrived 10 minutes early and were warmly greeted by the hostess at the front desk. We were seated and immediately offered a cocktail or appetizer which we jumped right... More

If you are trying to decide whether or not to stay married, here is on reason to say "No" to divorce - Bellini's White Chocolate Bread Pudding.

Everything about this restaurant was wonderful - the food, service, atmosphere, price. I had a seafood risotto that was absolutely delicious. My husband had the special - some kind of steak dish was amazing. If we lived in Birmingham, this place would become a dangerous habit, I'm afraid!
