My son and I were bouncing around the North Shore in early July, 2015 and decided to stay in Duluth near the aerial lift bridge. We stayed at the Inn on Lake Superior (loved it) and went walking around for a place to eat. The young lady at the front desk of the hotel didn't appear to have the same... More

We had the antipasto to start, which was very good. It had a nice assortment of meats, cheeses, salad, olives, and deviled eggs. For dinner, my husband had pasta filled with lobster and I had the rigatoni. Both were just OK and a bit disappointing after the delicious appetizer. We had coffee and desserts, gelato and tiramisu, which were both... More

Food wasn't bad, but it wasn't any kind of taste extravaganza. Dishes are safe and formulaic. Price for the experience was not worth it. Same quality at larger chains, way higher price.

No no no! Run by the owners of Grandma's Restaurant, Bellisio's is Olive Garden at 3x the price. My husband and I split the wedge salad and a pasta dish, and it was literally four times as much food as we needed, but at a quarter the quality we're used to. All for $30 a plate. Just say no no...

Service, food, wine list and patio would make me a regular if I lived in Duluth. Only thing that would have made it better is a view of the lake. Guess I can't have it all!

Food, service, and atmosphere was excellent! Just what I'd expect in a first class restaurant. Our water, and soda glasses, and bread basket were never empty. The bread is to die for!! The fettuccine Alfredo was authentic and superb, as was everything. We will definitely be returning here.

I was not impressed with the food. It was a little bland even with seasoning. They do have a good menu selection though. They also have a nice wine selection. We did different wine flights and enjoyed the sampling. Our waiter was amazing. She was so knowledgeable about the menu and the other selections. We were a large group and... More

This was my first visit to Bellisio's. My sisters, niece and I had a fabulous evening here. The atmosphere is very friendly and somewhere between casual and formal depending how you want to show up. We had a Montepulciano wine which was excellent! We started out with the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. For my first time having them... More

This is a great dinner option in the Canal Park tourist area of downtown Duluth. We had a patio table, and were entertained by the variety of vehicles passing by - including horse carriages and pedal taxis. The wine list is amazing! I especially enjoyed the large number of wines available by the glass! I tried a couple of unique... More

I really liked the atmosphere. The servers / bartenders did a good job. The wine list is pretty awesome. Also, they have an impressive cocktail list. I had 2 gin and tonics and my guest had 2 drinks which were very good. The bread was a nice touch, served with olive oil and balsamic. The downside was the mussels. I've... 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.
