“Food with a view”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

I enjoyed a particularly good meal here during the summer months. As the weather seldom lends itself to alfresco dining, I made the most of the opportunity and was not disappointed!

From the dining area beautiful views around the bay and the charming atmosphere can be enjoyed, accompanied with a well-recommended wine!

As for the food, this was delicious and hot, the service was friendly and efficient and the whole experience was nigh on perfect. I would recommend this restaurant to any would-be diner in the vicinity and look forward to a repeat visit sometime soon!

“Cold place warm people food okay but”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

No WiFi ... Heard good things about this place, lots of tables full with people redeeming food vouchers???
Goats cheese and mushroom starter nice, streak with rocket and Parmesan also nice ... Garlic bread and bruschetta just ok, as was the steak with cream and mushroom sauce.
Probably understand the vouchers now. Better places to eat in the Bay (café Rouge for example)

“Friendly place with tasty food”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We arrived to a warm welcome, the menu was comprehensive and the service was good. We both had pasta dishes and were pleased with our choices. A nice dining experience, could do with a Bellinis in Exeter!

“Good Cardiff Bay Italian restaurant”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Lovely location right on the Bay with lovely views as it's on the upper level, there are stairs and lifts so it's accessible to all. Good menu choices we all enjoyed what we'd chosen.
I'd been to the Bellini's in Cardiff city centre the week before which was equally good and slightly cheaper which, I guess,reflects the cost of overheads on the Bay.
There are a few places to eat in the area and in my opinion, for the price this is one of the best. Staff are friendly and helpful but not intrusive. It's a short taxi drive from the centre of town and cost £4.00 each way, there are buses from the centre which would obviously be much cheaper.

“Noisy Saturday night”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Although it was only 6.30 many of the restaurants were full down in Mermaid quay. Luckily we were accommodated at Bellinis.
We were seated quickly and served efficiently. I had a chicken dish which was succulent and tasty serves with a generous portion of vegetables. The pizza of my companion looked undercooked. They don't seem to have a good pizza oven.
It was very noisy and hard to hear sitting opposite each other, the table are also very close together.
Not great value many people seemed to be using vouchers.
