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. We celebrated our 27th anniversary at this awesome restaurant and, yes the steak was great (and it was cooked to temperature) and, yes the something something sauce was extraordinary and, yes the specialty...

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!

Came for a dinner with a group from my company. Ordered a dish that had penne pasta with sausage. 3 spoonfuls and found a big metallic wire in my food. Told the waiter and he took it very casually as if it was not a big thing. I was serious about it as I could have easily swallowed it. I... More

Bellini's is the perfect date night restaurant. The drinks, salads, dinner, and dessert were excellent. The service was wonderful. It's a hidden gem for sure.

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
