(1) Hostess had a terrible attitude, looked miserable, like she was doing us a favor.

(2) Good food but, way overpriced.

(3) Had to ask repeatedly for bread, and beverage refills.

(4) Overheard other customers complaining about service, and their bill.

We will not go there again, it will be well worth the drive to Corpus Christi's Olive Garden.

We ate at Bellino's with our in-laws and found the food decent, but not spectacular. My wife and I split bruschetta with shrimp, blended vegetable soup, and a ravioli dish. It was pretty crowded at the time we ate, but that may have been because there wasn't much open in the town. On the whole, it was a decent experience.

Finally got to eat at Bellinio's. It was everything we have heard. The service is fantastic. The food is great. Prices are terrific. Lots of food with each serving. The puréed vegetable soup was the best I have ever had. We will definitely be back.

We 2 were seated quickly at 5:15 on a Monday night as there was only one other table occupied. With only 11 tables, this is a small intimate place with low lighting, Andre Bocelli music, and a very traditional menu. Both our entrees were great - Carbonara, which was light with crispy bacon, and the Clams/Mussels in a fresh white sauce. A bottle of Chianti rounded out the meal. Loved everything about the meal which totaled $58.00. Will go back.

I have eaten at Bellino's twice now. The first time the cheesy Italian decor was a welcome relief from the tired and overused nautical themes elsewhere in town. Unfortunately the food was bad. Tasteless, watery ragu that i could have made better myself. After some time I went back with a work colleague and he said his pasta was overcooked and the sauce tasted like it had come out of a jar. My meal was bland. I know carbonara sauce is not the most exciting, but it is still possible to inject some character into it. All that was injected into it was water and salt.
This place needs to be avoided.
