“More for the young crowd ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Good restaurant with refined italian dishes of excellent quality. Wide choice of excellent cocktails. Staff very friendly and helpful.
A little loud as it seems to be the preferred spot for a young crowd.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Coming from the northeast, (Lived in Long Island and Boston) I am reluctant to try Italian-American food without hearing about the place beforehand. We came here on a whim while we were in town for a wedding and were pleasantly surprised at the delicious menu items, the welcoming decor and the reasonable prices that this place had to offer. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area for sure!

“Trendy atmosphere, attentive staff, and decent food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Picked this restaurant b/c my wife had a craving for pizza. We had to wait about 15 min for a table which seemed reasonable to us. We saw the wait staff harrassed by an irrational women, but she took it in stride and was very cordial though visibly upset by the women's demeanor.

The atmosphere was very trendy, nicely decorated and people were definitely enjoying themselves. The HEAT game played on TV's across the room which was nice.

Our food was tasty, my wife ordered her pizza (she was disappointed, not enough sauce and cheese--which was true, but it was very flavorful). I had the wedge salad and skirt steak. The steak was served to me very cold (some sort of mix up in the kitchen) however, they promptly took it back and cooked me a new steak (or heated it up--who knows). The steak was very flavorful and I was impressed.

The wait-staff was attentive and restaurant appeared to be well-managed.

Overall we had a great experience and would recommend others.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

In this restaurant, located on Beach Drive you can combine people watching (if seated outside) with eating a very tasty meal for an afordable price. Staff is friendly and service fast. It's not only the Italian food that is very good, also the burgers served on ciabatta are excellent.

“Best Restaurant on Beach Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Bellini's and Margherita Pizzas are the best! Dine outside and people watch while having an amazing meal. Prices are a bit high, but the quality of the food is worth it. Great atmosphere and location in Downtown St. Pete
