About Bellini's Ristorante & Bar
Great ideas often occur in the most comfortable of settings and Bellinis is no exception. With that in mind, in 2008 after discussing ideas over a bottle (or 2) of wine, the concept of Bellinis was formed. Come see why "Life is Sweet" at our place. Relax and enjoy your own glass of wine among friends and see where your discussions take you. At Bellinis OUR Passion is YOUR Food and YOUR Service.
Bellini's features 100% Prime Organic Beef, housemade pastas, veal, seafood and classic Tuscan Italian dishes. Bellini's maintains an extensive wine selection and weekly desert specials. Our bar opens weekdays at 4pm for drinks and dinner service begins at 5pm Monday to Saturday.

Everything was excellent! Went for my best friend's birthday and I can't even describe how delicious the food was!! And the cake... Oh my gosh! Definitely keeping in mind for special occasions or when I just want to feel fancy!

We love Bellini's but our dinner this past Friday night was extra spectacular. I had the halibut special with coconut rice and mango salsa. My husband had seafood risotto. I can't say enough good things about the entire meal. Our server Brad was top notch too. He was attentive, knowledgeable and fun. Can't wait to go back!

Our dinner was to celebrate a B'day and it could not have been better. The waiter was very knowledgable and very attentive. The food was excellent and the white chocolate bread pudding was the best I've had. Restaurant was full but the atmosphere was still very relaxing.

Excellent food, service was attentive but not annoying. Table for two was a little tight but I am a big guy. Took my wife of 17 years there for a pleasant night out. Had a great time and a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to have a nice evening out.

it was 10 minutes before our waitress came to our table after our arrival. her inattentiveness became even more pronounced and continued throughout evening when we didnt order alcohol. Disappointing service, but the food and ambiance were great

I really enjoyed Bellini's. The menu was varied and the general atmosphere was warm and relaxed. I ordered steak and it was a bit overcooked, so maybe order a rarer steak than you normally would (I ordered medium, but it was more like medium well). Everyone else at my table raved about their orders. I tried several bites and had to agree! I would definitely suggest ordering off the pasta menu. Service was excellent, we didn't have to wait long for our food, and our table (for 6) was ready, even though we showed up before our reservation. I would definitely go again.

We shared a cheese and meat platter for an appetizer, it was tasty and enough for 2. My wife had Veggie Lasagna and I had Penne Alla Romano. Portions were generous, food was hot and delicious. Service was good. We were originally seated in back room that had nothing to help soften the noise. We asked to be moved and were promptly seated in the main room which had fabrics to help buffer the noise. We were able to have enjoyable conversation while we ate.

This place has got it all, from really good service to a chef that knows how to cook.We will be here time and time again. Awesome Food/Service 6*. It is great to go into a place, where the staff seems to really have tried everything on the menu, and can really give you good suggestions on what you might like on this and the next visits, along with the great chef specials!!

Normally, Bellini's gets high marks from me. We took six people for a birthday dinner last week. I chose the 16oz cowboy ribeye ($45). All of our other dishes were fine but the steak was low quality and I would challenge that it was 16 oz. It was also flavorless. I know that Italian is their specialty but this is the most expensive item on the menu and I expected a much higher quality meal than I received. A comparable steak at Pappadeaux's is much higher quality and cheaper.
I didn't complain because everyone else's meal was good but I will avoid ordering steak

Great place for dining. Went for a special occasion and everything worked well.
I would recommend and I am going back to dine as well. Ordered roses for our table from their web-site while making reservation. When we arrived my table was ready along with the roses I had ordered. Great evening!!!

Bellinis was our favorite restaurant for 9 years, although getting from Birmingham to Bellinis on 280 is horrible. It was worth the bumper-to-bumper traffic for the dinners but now there has been a chef change and the food is disgusting. How can they ruin Chicken Parm and boulonnaise ravioli? Both meals were abysmal and it will be a long time and another chef change before we return. Service was good. Food was not.

Our food was not at all what we expected I had the redfish schnitzel it was fried with heavy crust and the menu stated pan seared was overcooked the grouper my husband had was not even a dinner size portion even half the size of my palm. Very disappointed for it being our Anniversary dinner. The waitress, however, was very attentive and did an excellent job and the wine was about the only thing we did enjoy!
We have eaten many times at this restaurant and always found it to be absolutely wonderful. On this occasion however, we noticed that many things had changed. The $45 porterhouse steak was very tough and almost inedible. The portions were half the size they were previously with no change in pricing. They even changed the ingredients of some of their best standards which no longer looked appealing. We were so disappointed in our meal that we will most likely not return again.
We had a spur of the moment chance to hang out with some special friends who are often out of town. We had not made any reservations and it was almost 5:00 pm. We pulled up Open Table and Bellini's had some options after 8:00 pm ... perfect for us! From the minute we got there until we left, it was absolutely fabulous. Courteous staff, fantastic food, atmosphere was quiet and relaxed, just a wonderful place. We may have overstayed our welcome since we weren't paying any attention to time - when we looked up, there were no other customers in the place and the bar stools were already put away. The staff never acted like we should leave, nor gave us any "looks". LOL! It was a fantastic time - we will definitely go again and hopefully much earlier so we can stay longer!
Excellent Food Strange Presentation
Seated immediately in main dining room as requested. Excellent waiter. Ordered crab cakes and came with greens so didn't order a salad. Chef prepared Veal Picatta which isn't on the menu and has done this for me numerous times. However, this time had a very strange presentation in that a small amount of pasta came out in a very large, deep plate, the sauce and mushrooms came in a small separate bowl with no capers and the breaded and fried veal was on a third plate! Usually, all three are together on one plate with the sauce, mushrooms and capers poured over the veal cutlets. This presentation detracted from my usual enjoyment of this dish. The three crab cakes were delicious and were arranged in a circle with greens in the middle- very nice! Were given plenty of fresh, grated Parmesan as usual. Maybe a new chef accounted for the strange presentation and I guess I will have to specify how it should be done next time. Lastly, I had a gift card and the waiter handled it discreetly and efficiently.

It was our anniversary dinner and we were so fortunate to have celebrated it at Bellini's! Brittany was our server. She was polite, cheerful and so nice. The other staff was also pleasant and efficient. I can't describe how wonderful the crab cake appetizer, charred Caesar salad, crab and shrimp manicotti were for dinner. However, the white chocolate bread pudding was extraordinary! A truly memorable and special meal that my husband and I will always remember! We can't wait to go back again.
Great Graduation Dinner
Our group was celebrating a graduation dinner last night, and we had a fantastic time at Bellini's. The hostess, bartender, and our waiter were so nice and helpful, and the service was great. Everyone loved their food. We all sampled what others were having, and everything was delicious! The atmosphere is great too--beautiful and cozy, and not too loud. Towards the end of our dinner, our graduate looked around and said, "I love this place." We'll definitely be back.

Food was good, however veggie lasagna not the best I have ever had, too much ricotta cheese and not enough veggies. Overpriced for what you get. The back room they put us in was very noisy! We have been many times and will continue to go since we consider it our "neighborhood go-to place".

Second time at Bellini's and just as enjoyable. Our server, Jade, was very helpful and the dining room staff seemed to be on top of everything, even before being asked. Food was delicious and served piping hot. Fantastic desert as well. We traveled from Gadsden, about a hours drive, to dine at Bellini's and will do so again. I do recommend reservations. We dined on a Tuesday evening and to our surprise, they were busy. Not standing out the door busy but busy. Might have been some folks from the Regions Golf tourney. Great evening!
