“Great for large groups”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

It looks great from the outside, small and full of character, but beware - inside it is the other half of a very noisy pub. Great if you want a lively night, full of noise and crowds. But if you were wanting conversation, you won't be able to hear each other. Service was very swift but the staff were few and were practically running. Food was nice but overpriced, especially for a glorified pub! Order pasta or pizza for a decent feed. A good choice for those in the party mood, avoid if you're looking for a peaceful evening.

“Good food, bad service”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

The food here is a little over priced but is well presented and delicious. The only bad thing I can say about this Belluci's chain in Canberra is the serve is shocking! Very rude, unhelpful and unattentive. The last time I visited the lunch time specials menu's were hidden and only handed out if you knew about them and requested one.

“Reasonable food but not exceptional”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Belluci's is always a bit hit and miss for me as I find the restaurant too noisy and service either too full on or non existent. My sister and I had an early dinner mid-week and although our waiter showed us quickly to a table and took our order, he disappeared for the rest of the evening!

My sister ordered the Tournedos which she said was delicious and was cooked perfectly to her liking. My pumpkin pasta dish (specials board) was reasonably sized although could have done with a little more pumpkin.

“The word average was invented because of this place.”
Reviewed June 10, 2012 via mobile

The menus looked amazing, but the food that followed was expensive and drearily average.

Service matched the food. Avoid please.
