“RESTAURANT RUN WITH FAMILY CHARM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Bellagio is a delightful small Italian restaurant, beautifully lighted with members of a family who are cordial and dedicated to a polite and a delicious experience. Father tends the bar, mother is in the kitchen and the two sons serve the diners with a smile and a courteous manner. The menu is varied, the wine list is growing and the food is pleasing and ample. We feel good coming and going!

“Bellagio was a delight...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

...can't wait to go back. The atmosphere was warm and hospitable. A family operated restaurant, our young server was charming and described entrees with mouth watering accuracy. It is evident that this authentic Italian family takes pride in their establishment, as all food is "home-made". Our entrees were large portions and benissimo!

“Wonderful gathering place after the theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We had a group of 6. Two had the gnocchi dish, two had pasta, and two had the veal bellagio. We all enjoyed the meals. We were all pleased with the comfort and atmosphere of the entire restaurant. The waiters were very good and very knowledgeable. It was a true family restaurant.
All six of us gave it a thumbs up.

“New meaning to the word Family Style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Family style usually means that the diners share large portion meals. At Bellagio, it means you are being greeted, served and cooked for by family. The young waiter was more professional and attentive than the most seasoned waiter. The father is behind the wine bar and makes his own lemoncello( awesome). Mom cooks and the portions are large and the food seems more like going over your Italian friend's house for dinner than eating in a restaurant. When we ordered a Caesar salad to share, the waiter said, "do you want my mom to split it in half". Nice touch. Will definitely go back.Location is a bit odd and you might not stop unless you read the reviews which means uncrowded and no wait(for now).

“Excellent Italian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

It was our first time at Bellagio and we will definitely return, but on a special occasion. It's a bit pricey for everyday dining. The food was excellent! Best Italian we've had in Sarasota. After dinner, the owner brought out free limoncello that he had made. It was great! The restaurant is small, but very comfortable and attractive. We were using a Restaurant.com coupon, and we were a little surprised that they added a 20% tip automatically.
