    Enjoyed a delicious meal and a great bottle of wine at this neighborhood gem of a restaurant. The place was hopping and the service was terrific! The Lobster Bisque special was velvety, hot and tasty. Lasagna was exactly the comfort meal favorite my husband was hoping for, and the Spaghetti alla Diavola was filled with Tiger Shrimp and had just the right amount of zip. Paired with a perfect bottle of Chianti, and we were in dining heaven. We would always overlook this restaurant since it's right down the street from us. Not any more!

    Perhaps the best pizza in Conejo Valey if you as iI do love crispy thin crust. Wife loved their calamari and the salad was very good too. Nice sized pour on the wine and the $8 was very fare for the quality.Lighting could be either turned up or needs a little more, dark romantic is nice but needed mini lights to see menu.

    Dining at Bellini Osteria is reliably a good choice. There is a large selection of delicious choices so that all 'diets' can be accommodated. Full bar, which is pleasant also to sit at, at warm atmosphere all around. A large tented in outside area makes for more privacy or could be rented out for an event. I must say I adore their Carpaccio 😊 and their fish has been fresh and delicious. Pastas YuMmmy and service attentive !

    Excellent Italian food. We don't go out much because we like our own gourmet cooking and we're not big fans of chain restaurants, but at least once a month you will find us at Belini's. Often we order off of the daily special menu, but if perchance that doesn't tickle our taste buds, we never tire of the great selections they have on their regular menu: the pizza, carpaccio, lasagna, and risotto are my personal favorites. The ingredients are fresh and excellently prepared. I let the waiter pick my wine and I'm never disappointed. We prefer the patio, but if you are more hip, then I suggest the dining room. OH, and do not forget to try their desserts!

    This restaurant would have been so much better if the owner/host was more welcoming. We had a coupon, and when asked what it included, he proceed to indicate that the coupon company made a misprint and if he honored both a pizza AND an appetizer rather than pizza OR an appetizer, he would go out of business. Really?? I would assume that an appetizer of $10 would certainly not put a restaurant out of business. And, I would imagine that most people who have a promotional coupon are first time diners, and that the restaurant would want repeat customers. Shouldn't they pour on the charm and bring out the welcome wagon? Although the food and ambience were lovely, we had a bad taste in our mouth as soon as we walked in the door.

    We went with a groupon deal. We had a pizza and salad. The both were delicious. However, the service was horrible!!! Our waiter ignored us. We had to ask multiple times to get our water refilled. When we asked for bread five times. Guess what, we never got the bread!!!

    I was having a good bye party for my first employee heading off to collage and there was eight of us. For the moment I called and spoke with Matt to the end of a wonderful three hour dinner, Matt and his people waited on us non stop. Never and empty glass and always making sure everything was perfect. Starters, salads, dinner, and desert was like eating at a five star resort. If you go make sure to just take suggestion from the waiters. They told us all the great stuff and we're able to describe it like they just had it. Mat special blast out to you. Your a rock star!

    This restaurant came with a good recommendation. There was only 1other couple when we arrived at about 8pm which was a red flag. My pizza was terrible -dry and brittle. One pasta was good another just ok and a 4th meal ok. We all agreed we would not return.

    I must say the evening we were there a small child sketched repeatedly and I found that unpleasant. We ate inside and there was no place for the noise to be absorbed. My friend liked her lasagna. I had tortellini stuffed with veal with a Parmesan cream sauce. The tortellini were like little pillows - soft and tender. The fillings was flavorful and delicious. The Parmesan cream sauce lacked flavor. I wish now that I had spoken up and asked for a little sherry or something to bring up the flavor. I will do that next time. Very enjoyable evening.

    Excellent food, eat outside on the patio where it is quiet, inside is so loud from noise you can hardly hold a conversation. Avoid happy hour unless you're looking for inexpensive drinks and appetizers, or sit on the patio. The food is well prepared and comes out of the kitchen hot, which is good. The flavors are excellent. The wine list is fairly well balanced, though a little pricey. The corkage fee is $15.

    The atmosphere was great and the service was good as well. Being raised in an Italian household with a mom from Italy and have been to Italy myself, i know good Italian food! with that in mind i would give the food an OK rating. Calamari was great, lasagna ok. Sauce is on the acid side and bolognese was not cooked long enough, just tasted like hamburger thrown in at the last minute. I believe you pay a higher price because of location not due to the quality of food. You want to try authentic Italian go to Montecito, near Santa Barbara and try Pane e Vito's amazing! worth the drive!

    We had a party of eight; our server was knowledgeable about the cocktails and menu items, and very personable. I wouldn't say he was overly attentive as he was busy covering other tables. And two of our dessert items didn't get ordered. Overall, the food was good and the ambiance is very nice. We sat on the patio. We weren't in a hurry. I would go there again based on the menu and quality of the food.

    We sat in the outside patio area as there was quite a few people at the bar watching the LA Kings playoff game and they were very loud. Nothing wrong with watching the game and cheering for your team, but it was something that seemed out of place at this restaurant as opposed to a sports bar or micro-brew. The food was ok - a solid B, but the service, while polite, was simply terrible. The waiter seemed more interested in socializing with other wait staff versus paying attention to the patrons. Our order was messed up, we waited 45 minutes for food to come out and when it did, the appetizer and entre's were served at the same time - and the appetizer was cold. Needless to say we sent the appetizer back. Service continued at that level

    We wanted to try this local restaurant for some time now. The ambience on the patio was nice. Unfortunately the service was slow and the food mediocre. We needed to ask for bread ( served cold) several times. Any good Italian restaurant automatically places bread on the table without a request. The lasagna was missing something. The positive was the special of the day; seafood with gluten free pasta. I am sorry to say that we will not be returning.

    This is the first time we have been to Bellini Osteria and what a gem! We had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was delectable. We went with another couple and everything was fantastic. Gerardo was our waiter and he is delightful and has a great sense of humor. The service was prompt and the presentation was 5 star as well. I am looking forward to gathering a group of our friends to enjoy another great night at the restaurant. The restaurant is beautiful and quaint, and they have a very nice bar area.

    The ambience is fantastic, very intimate with a casual feel. They offer both indoor and outdoor seating. There is some traffic noise if you sit outdoors, but it's not that bad once the flow of chatter begins. Very serene. The service was excellent. I was really impressed with how down to earth, casual, and comfortable our server (who also doubled as the bartender) was and how she made us feel. The food was delicious. Not your traditional tangy tomato sauce that chain restaurants serve, but much smoother with depth and balance. A bread basket and balsamic blend dipping sauce is also served. Our server paired the wine with the meal perfectly.
