Bellini's Ristorante & Bar Ratings and Reviews
First time there celebrating a birthday. Had a wonderful meal! Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu to make suggestions and answer questions of our group. We tried two specialty cocktails and they were yummy! Loved the blood orange martini! Only complaint, the battery operated tea light candles on each table cast a weird orange glow through the dining room. Real candles would have helped the ambience a lot.
In this household's opinion, you cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. It's simply awesome and deserves its name alongside the other wonderful restaurants we have in Birmingham. And it's right in our backyard so to speak. The only reason we don't eat here 20 or more times a year is because we forget to make reservations early enough.
This particular visit was to celebrate two good friend's birthdays and anniversary. The evening did not disappoint. From the two grouper specials to my wife's filet and a friends simple, but apparently wonderful spaghetti, the praise was being heaped as we left for our car.
Also, I would be remiss if I didn't mention our waiter, Tom. He's waited on us before and I knew he was good, but Friday night he was simply perfect. He did not rush us; he allowed us to enjoy our wine and visit as we like to do and then, when ready to eat, it was down to business. If you see this, Tom: great job! I wish I knew your last name to avoid any confusion.
To the restaurant itself: Gold Star!
We ate at Bellinis on a Saturday night in celebration of our anniversary. This was our first visit to Bellinis.
The restaurant has a cozy feel, but can be loud and difficult to carry on a conversation when crowded as it was the night we went.
The food was excellent and the service was very good. I would highly recommend the red velvet cake.
We will be back to enjoy dinner at Bellinis.
The atmosphere is amazing. It's like you're in a little house in Italy. Warm, cozy lighting. The spacing of the tables is great; you have enough space between you and then next table, so your meal feels private.The food is cooked to perfection and tastes magnificent! You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu.
Hands down among our favorite restaurants in Birmingham. Staff is friendly and fun and the service is amazing. The food is always incredible. I had the pork chop which is rare for me to order and it was perfect. She had the steak with lobster ravioli. It was so good we were tempted to order one to go.
I *think* our server's name was Cassie, and she may have been the best server we've had on any of our trips to Bellini's. Very attentive (without being overbearing), very professional, and very friendly. We would like nothing better than to have her as our server the next time we are there.
Interior is very attractive as an Italian restaurant should be. I liked the many small rooms they had along a side wall. It kept the noise level down so you could have good conversations. The alfredo pasta dishes were excellent. I think there others looked great also. Wait staff were quality people that did a great job.
We were visiting from Mobile and we went to Bellini's based on a positive rating and favorable feedback from several online sources. Once we told some Bham friends where we were going, they started telling us their favorite menu items, like the jalepeno Mac and cheese. From the Italian wedding soup to the tiramisu, it was all fantastic. We will definitely go again.
Outstanding food in a great atmosphere. Bellini's has become our "go to" place for special occasions or just a quality meal in a relaxing environment. The specials are always dynamite, as is the regular menu. The lunch menu is one of the best in Birmingham. Service is absolutely outstanding. Cassie, Sam...two of our favorites. But we've never had anything but superior service.
First time to try Belinni's for lunch. Found the place to be cozy and pleasant. Waitress was wonderful. The food was fresh and large portions. The menu had several items we would like to try in future visits. Restaurant has small outdoor dining area for good weather.
As usual Bellini's hits it out of the park. We have eaten here many times and I have yet to be disappointed. This is a fantastic date spot but also a good location for groups. It was just my wife and I on this occasion but in December we had our Son's wedding rehearsal dinner here as well. We had the entire main room for a party of 45 and it was perfect. The menu that we chose have options to all tastes and of course the bread pudding was Devine. We will continue coming back for special occasions and also when we just want a great meal and an equally great wine selection.
I wanted somewhere quiet and romantic to celebrate a two year anniversary. It was certainly romantic but, unfortunately, it was extremely loud. We actually just had to stop trying to talk because we couldn't hear each other. The food was delightful, drinks were excellent, and the waitress was more knowledgeable than anywhere I've ever been. We will be going back, just maybe not for a special occasion where conversation is important.
Bellini's has been a favorite since it opened. Of course, the bread pudding is spectacular, but the food is just as wonderful! We took friends from out of town and they loved it! Brittany was a fabulous server, too! If you need a quieter spot, request a table in the back room. Awesome dining experience!
Normally Bellini's is flawless. The food is usually perfection. I go there often and will continue to go there. This particular evening my food was barely warm and my beef short ribs were dry and tough. Not the norm for them and I will assume this was a fluke. I did not mention it to the server as the service was slow and I didn't feel like dealing with it.
(I returned for lunch the next day. Food was fabulous as always. Service was still off. I'm wondering if they were having computer problems )
It was a very cold night and the bar was full. It is a small restaurant with a small waiting area and we were 7. We had to stand on the corner for a little while and it took a bit to get a drink. Once we sat down at our table the restaurant dinning area was empty, but there were still plenty of people at the bar. The
Waitress didn't ask if we wanted an appetizer , she told us about the chef's choice answer a couple of questions and left. Once she came back, she was ready to get our orders. The food was great a bit expensive, but it was delicious so I don't mind paying for it. However, we felt rushed to order and leave the place. Overall, it was an okay experience, and I will probably be back but I would have to have an early reservation.
