“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

My husband and a friend decided to surprise myself and her husband with a dinner at Bellissimo's to celebrate milestone birthdays. We had been before and had a great evening so seemed a good choice. What a disappointment the evening was. The service was appalling.

Haven't been for a couple of years and am wondering why. Location is a little weird in a strip mall, but the decor is very nice. Our server was both pleasant and knowledgeable. As others have noted, you have to be patient with the time it takes to get your meal, but this is because it is all prepared fresh. Excellent food and a good wine list. I will be back soon.

Tip - if you are going in prime time, have a reservation. The restaurant has expanded their seating, but it gets packed quickly. That said, I was impressed by the number of staff on duty.

You won't go wrong here.

“NOT impressed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

As a couple that eat out and order in on a very regular basis we know how busy restaurants can be. We called Bellissimo at 730 pm on a Friday evening for delivery and after the whole order was taken we were then told that "they were a bit to busy to deliver that far." we live in st. vital. We even went as far as to say we were not in a rush. With no response we said we'd order from another great Italian restaurant we love on Pembina and she said "ok have a good night." WOW!!! highly surprised and unimpressed and for a couple that is always out and about, we will not be calling them again.

“Great presentation and taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

After finding this restaurant on tripadvisor it took a little looking to find as it is located in a strip mall in south Winnipeg. The staff was friendly and helpful in making our selection. An interesting and varied menu giving the diner many options. We settled on the Pollo Ripieno and Vitello Limone. Both we excellent. I would highly recommend taking the time to seek out thks gem.

“highly recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

this is my 2nd time at this restaurant. We were lucky as we did not have a reservation. We were seated quickly and in no time restaurant was full. Very professional serving personnel. Food excellent. I was with 4 teenagers/young adults and everyone enjoyed their meal. In summer they have a cozy outdoor eating area. Would be smart to make reservation for this restaurant.
