Visited this restaurant on a recommendation but was very disappointed and will not return again. I would describe the food only average but the major concern was the service or should I say the lack of it. It wasn't that anyone was rude but just a general lack of care and attention to detail. It seemed that everything was just too much trouble for them all and no-one was particulaly friendly. It was only at the end of the evening that one guy (maybe the owner) actually acknowledged us and actually offered a free liquour to us all. Unfortunately a little too late!!

We use this restaurant quite a lot, it helps that it's less than 5 minutes walk from home. Never had anything but excellent service and excellent food. Prices are very reasonable. If Carlsberg made restaurants..............!!

We were welcomed by a really lovely girl,which was the best bit of the experience! We had king prawns in garlic prawns with chilli which had no flavour ,you couldn't taste the prawns they were very watery completely tasteless and 4 small for king prawns. When we spoke to our waiter who asked what we thought of our starters I think may have been the head waiter he told us it was a very popular dish and never had complaints And was their most popular dish.they tasted like they had been defrosted by rinsing with water all the flavour had gone, The main couses were slightly better but not much ! After the reactionwhen we didn't like the starter really felt we couldn't say any more. We didn't see our waiter after he delivered our main courses he completely ignored us.
We did notice most people had pasta and pizza so maybe that's what there do best .but will never know because would never go back.the young lady who welcomed us and said goodbye was very lovely . When we left at 9.30 on a Saturday night ! Only one couple left in the restaurant, should have been a lot busier for a Saturday night it was very quiet we had a large choice of tables to choose from when we arrived at 8.30.
We have lived in the area a long time a tried most restaurants int he area this was one of the worst.

Service was OK - but the restaurant was very busy, but when the food did arrive it was very good. We did go to this restaurant in a large party and it was on a very busy night, could have probrably done with more staff on, but they got there in the end.

Well.....being as this is one of our favourite places to go we couldn't miss out on the Frank Sinatra evening held at Bellini's last night (Wed 31st Oct '12). What a fantastic evening we had! Despite a full restaurant (bar the two seater table next to us) the service was excellent as always and the food surpassed itself. The entertainment was excellent and all the diners joined in the fun, singing, dancing, laughing, chatting - brilliant night! A big thank you to Beckham and all his staff, you looked after us so well - really appreciate your efforts.
