“Bellavino Great Food and Service; Music Kills It”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Bellavino has a very good selection of wines and Hors d'oeuvres to enjoy, sample as well as a decent selection of wines and dinner selections. We were having a couple's night out and it was excellent until the music inside the restaurant started playing. The music was highly amped and no one could hear the person next to them. Rather than playing about 20 db softer to enjoy the music, which I think was probably good, the restaurant chose to chase out everyone who wanted to keep their eardrums intact. Too bad it really ruined a good dining experience. If you want to enjoy the good service and wine tasting, don't go at night.

“Great entertainment but only average food”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

We enjoyed Midnight Train entertainment in the evening with a wonderful wine selection. The dinner was only average food but the wine pairings were more of a 4 rating.

“Great wines by the glass!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

The wine choices by-the-glass were superior. We also enjoyed the fairly priced and excellent food choices. The waiter was quick to understand our wine pallette and adjusted his selections to meet our needs. This smallish wine bistro is in a strip mall and can easily be overlooked - but search for it and be pleasantly surprised!

“We've become regulars”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

Bellavino had me at hello. We have enjoyed a quiet meal on the patio. We have gone late and sat near the band and enjoyed a wine tasting flight and a cheese plate to die for! We have gone to their Sunday Swirl tasting ($15 for 20+ wines...and stayed for dinner after buying a bottle). The atmosphere is amazing and the staff is very friendly and welcoming (a plus in my book). The filet of beef is mouthwatering with delicious (they put the best blue cheese on top!).... Wish the potatoes and veggies were a little more tasty...but that's ok...my waistline doesn't need anymore potatoes. Thanks Bellavino for giving us a great experience time after time...you are on our calendar weekly now!

“Great wine and food with entertainment”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

This place is the best combination of a wine bar, restaurant and club possible. They serve a very large selection of wines by the glass and host special tastings very frequently. The latter are often in the form of a tasting dinner where wines are paired with a particular plate. These are a very good value and highly recommended. The food is very good by itself on any other day, though. They host live music Thu-Sat. The place is rather small with the bar in one room and the restaurant side in the second room, so a reservation is recommended. The only downside is that there is no outside seating given that they are in a large strip-mall.
