My wife and I ordered the Chicken Marsala. After placing our order the wait to receive our food was extremely long. At that point you would think the food should come out of the kitchen hot...not even close. The entire plate was completely cold. As...More

Great Italian food with great atmosphere, great place for a romantic date. The food is upscale and so are the prices. Extras are A La Carte. Huge wine selection!

The food was OK for the price, but not great. One person at our table ordered the escargot, which was tasty. I had the Bolognese alla Bellisio's - a red meat sauce with fresh made gnocchi. The gnocchi was wonderful, but the sauce was completely...More

My boyfriend and I were both very disappointed in the food we had for dinner. The walleye was very tough that we had to cut it with a knife. If it were fresh, it would have been white and flaky, rather this walleye was tan...More

We each tried a wine flight, there were so many to choose from! The food was great, but a bit more than we would have liked to spend. Overall, we would go back!

Bellisio's has a great menu and a phenomenal wine collection. BUT their annual zinfandel appreciation party is to die for... The only reason anyone would come to the upper Midwest!

Lovely place to have a fabulous Italian dinner in Canal Park. There is a small outdoor dining area to people watch while enjoying the many varieties of Italian wine flights.

Great question! I would have to say that our traveling guests hear about the great walleye in Minnesota and because we live on Lake Superior we feel it's important to offer a walleye dish. Our Walleye Milanese has an... More

We also were in very casual clothes. If you wanted to make it a dressy, special occasion, you'd be fine. if you'd been exploring Canal Park all day, you could show up in casual clothes as well. Hope this helps!

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.
