My girlfriend and I were visiting Duluth and based upon a friend's recommendation we at at Bellisio's and couldn't have been happier. The Chicken Marsala was good, but the Chicken Risotto was GREAT and the restaurant also has a great selection of wines and a very cozy, intimate vibe to it. Ask to sit in the bar vs the main...

My husband and I were in Duluth for a weekend in May and got to dine here on the last day of our trip. Had we found this place a little earlier,I'm sure we would've had all our meals here. We shared an appetizer and the Gnocchi with spinach and cheese and loved them totally. The flavour of freshly crushed... More

We wanted to find a fancy place to eat on our last night in Duluth and had heard good things about Belisio's. Restaurant was busy and we didn't have a reservation--so we sat in the bar--which was better anyway because there aren't as many tables/customers and had a nice atmosphere with all the food service the restaurant offers. I had... More

This is the only Wine Spectator award winner in the area and they are truly deserving! After traveling in the area for a bit, we were tired of the usual beer, ect....... And wanted a quality bottle of wine and food to accompany it. Bellisio's stands up against fine Italian restaurants anywhere. We shared a Caprese salad with super fresh... More

Last night I went back to Bellisio's and I am sure glad I did. We had a party of 8 and received excellent service from our waitress. The food was made very quickly and it tasted amazing. I ordered the shrimp scampi and it was delicious. The menu was great, the wine selection is the best in the city of... More

I thoroughly enjoyed a flight of wine and a very fresh and delicious Caesar salad. Wait staff were very friendly and helpful in making selections. It was a Tuesday night without a huge crowd so we sat at a large table in the bar (we were a group of 8) and felt no pressure to be too quiet or to... More

Description
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.
