“Early Friday night dinner.. enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

We popped in looking for a table early on a Friday night. We were made to feel welcome and were the first in there so lacked atmosphere due to this but that's not their fault it was very early on a Friday night. Although we arrived at the pre theatre time we had to ask for that menu. But the service was good and the waitress was knowledgeable. Our meal was lovely, well cooked and well presented. I am Italian and I would certainly go back. I would agree that it is very dark and dingy though.. i would prefer if it was made brighter decor with candles for that romantic modern feel.

the tin foil swans were certainly amusing..

“Good Food at reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Ordered from their pretheatre menu. Very nice food. The standout item of the night was the icecream dessert with an ornate cut pineapple. Only issue was the waiter struggling to understand my chinese colleagues accent. However, this was quite entertaining.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

While the service was fine, the food was average. Ordered fillet steak which was fine but it was served with a silly tin foil 'swan' which was filled with overcooked veg which were burned on outside. How they managed to do that I don't know! Complained to waiter about this and didn't receive apology or acknowledgment. We paid just under £100 for 3 courses and bottle of wine for 2 and left disappointed. Heard afterwards its the same owners of Don Michele on Perth Rd. if I had known this I wouldn't have gone in first place as had a disappointing meal there too.

“Good food, very modern decor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Having eaten in this restaurant many times in some of its previous guises, it was intriguing to find out what was different in this incarnation. Essentially this is still a good Italian restaurant in an excellent city centre location. The food and service for lunch was very good. The only downside was the new decor, which we found very dark. Indeed, it put us off taking a table at the rear of the restaurant it was so gloomy, and we asked to be seated near the front where there was natural light.

“Wish we'd found Bellini's sooner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

We have been to Bellini's on several occasions now and found the food to be excellent and beautifully presented. The house wine is also very good and the staff are attentive (although a little slow at peak periods - as you might expect). We have visited at different times of the day and week now and have always had a good meal. Perhaps one area for improvement (hence 4 stars only) would be to have more changes on the specials menus for the vegetarian option - non-vegetarian options are great. We are always looking for good restaurants in Dundee and Bellini's is certainly one of them.
