Bellisio's used to be a treat. Last week I took my parents, my mother-in-law, and my family for dinner. The service person was timid, and the food wasn't good. My dad had calamari which was soft. It is usually his favorite dish, and he left 3/4 of it uneaten. My risotto was overly rich and heavy.

The ambiance is lovely, definitely dress up to go here to make the evening memorable. Service was excellent, expected of a higher price range restaurant. Wine and Beer selection was extensive. We had two apps- escargot and calamari and BOTH were very good. Some of the food was good, like the Shrimp Scampi and Spaghetti with Meatballs (oddly not on... More

Great food and you can sample flights of wine. Superb selection, the Caesar salad I had was way different but good. The entrees were over $20.

Had a lovely Sunday night dinner with friends at this restaurant. It was my first time there but all 5 of the guests had been before and are all quite fond of it for good reason. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was excellent. There was some good vegetarian options (and the waitress on learning I was vegetarian gave some... More

The service was excellent. The pasta that we ordered was very good. However, I ordered a shrimp salad that came out looking like an appetizer. It was a good thing my family members had plenty of pasta to share with me! Excellent wine selection! 🍷

My steak was cooked perfectly EXCEPT THE SURFACE WAS BURNT.My wifes steak was perfect but the mashed potatoes were off some how? The oil to dip your bread in tasted very strong we both could not eat it ,. It was very pricey... More

One of our favorite restaurants in Duluth! My husband had the lobster filled ravioli with the jumbo shrimp, and I had the Alaskan King salmon. Both were excellent!! They are 2 of the higher priced items on the menu, but they were so worth it. Definitely will go back.

The food was okay, its like an average Italian restaurant with a large wine collection. Service was exceptionally good food was Blant. It seems to miss the flavor. The ambience is great i wished the food matched hyped up price.

We stopped here without a reservation and we were able to be seated very quickly. The wait staff were very attentive and willing to answer any question. My husband had the Italian Sausage Risotto and I had the Chicken Alla Milanese. The Risotto was creamy with just the right amount of spices and sausage. The Chicken Alla Milanese with lemon... More

From out of town and like to try local restuarants, instead of chain restaurants that I can eat at home. This did not disappoint. If you like wine, they have a very large wine list. I enjoyed a red wine "flight". I got to try samples of 4 different varieties. Out of the samples I order a full glass of... More

Classic Italian dinning and Wine Spectator award winner since 1999
Bellisio’s restaurant conjures up images of highly skilled chefs, fine wines, superb service, and fresh Italian food. And while all this is most certainly true, one must not forget that Bellisio’s is above all an experience. An exceptional dining experience, to be precise, but one that takes place in a casual atmosphere reminiscent of the quaint eateries and wine bars of the Italian countryside. And no wonder. The experience is fashioned after the small village of Bellisio, Italy, home to the owner’s ancestry. Imported direct from Italy are the beauty, comfort, romance, and glorious recipes. Specialty dishes include perfectly prepared pasta dishes using the finest imported and local ingredients; fennel roasted rack of pork; homemade risotto dishes; grilled steaks; shrimp; seafood; and a fresh catch feature every day. All served with a world class wine menu to match. Bellisio’s has received Wine Spectator’s prestigious “Best of Award of Excellence” every year since we opened in 1999. It’s a simple, colorful, elegant, and exceptional dining experience.
