“Wonderful Italian restaurant in Corpus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

My husband and I eat here frequently. It is a tiny little place, very nice decor(not cartoon italian), and wonderful staff. No matter who the waitstaff is, they are helpful, friendly, and unobtrusive. I frequently get the carbonara, and while it is much more than I can eat, leftovers are fine with me. They have a fun cheese plate, which with a glass of wine is frequently enough for dinner. They frequently have veal specials, and I have never been disappointed with any of them. Just a nice, friendly, good restaurant-and in Corpus that is close to a miracle.

“Good, not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

I ordered Chicken Marsala and was not a fan, I have had better. A little bland. Everything else was good but a little expensive.

“Best Hidden Italian secret in Corpus Christi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

My wife and I decided to look for a Mom & Pop Restaurant this last weekend as a lunch date and found this beautiful and quiet place hidden off of Alemeda St. The owner is from Italy. The food is organic and so tasteful and the service is so kind hearted (Mr. Caballero- over 25 yrs restaurant experience).They provide catering and can reserve sections/entire room for events. There is a bar for anyone waiting to be seated. Find some time to take a date out to this little piece of Italy!!!

“Fresh, Authentic Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Bellino's is small, quiet, and wonderful. The owner is the executive chef. They had a rocky start the first 6 months with inconsistent quality but we go 2-3 times a month now for 9 months and haven't been disappointed once. I love the chicken piccatta and my husband's favorite is the shrimp francesco. The marinara sauce is to die for and I can't say enough about the homemade soups. Very traditional recipes that remind me of Sicily. You have to try the strawberries marsala. And the service is first rate. I cannot think of any other place in Corpus Christi where the waitstaff is this good.

“Best service, good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

My husband and I went to Bellino's for dinner. We were seated straight away. We arrived at 5:50. The house wines are half off from 3:00 - 6:00. We ordered a bottle of Chianti for half price. Our waiter was one of the best waiters I have ever met. He was very knowledgeable, courteous, and efficient. The food was great. My only regret is that I did not save room for dessert.
