A word from 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.

We have two private dining areas available for large parties. Our private dining room accommodates 20 to 25 patrons and features a 48" TV with audio visual capabilities. Our Intimate Dining room accommodates 10 to 15 patrons. Reservations are suggested.

Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated an anniversary at Bellini's. Seems like a nice neighborhood restaurant...well rounded dishes but not remarkable. Service was a bit spotty."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "While the hostesses were great in accommodating the changes in our reservation and the wait staff was very attentive, the food was either a hit or a miss. We ordered two specials (16oz T-Bone with polenta, bacon-wrapped stuffed scallops) and three entrees off the menu (Chicken Parm, Mediterranean Chicken with risotto and Grouper with risotto). I tried all except the Mediterranean, and overall, the specials were great. Issues - bacon was undercooked and steak plate was missing a green acoutremont, both complaints by diners and myself. The Chicken Parm was great. The grouper was just okay - a tad under seasoned and small for the inflated price. The risotto on both plates was VERY bland and just needed a kick of salty parm or lemon zing. "

  • "I had dinner at Bellini's a week ago and then had lunch 2 days ago. Both were excellent. I will recommend this restaurant to friends to enjoy."

  • "Bellini's is a wonderful dining experience because the food is very good and the knowledge of our waitress was good. The cocktails are just right too!"

  • "Our waiter, Austin, was very impressive and knew several components of each meal. It's always refreshing for the server to order for you because of their knowledge of the menu. I'll definitely go back!"

  • "Bellini's offers a great menu and excellent service. Great for special occasions, but good enough that you should go more often than that."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "This was my first visit to Bellini's and I was generally very pleased with the dining experience. The two of us were seated immediately at a quiet corner table. The staff was courteous and the service was excellent and very prompt. Our meal was excellent, very nicely presented and plentiful. I felt the prices were a bit high particularly the additional cost of a salad and an additional side. Drink prices were a little high also for wine. In general, I was pleased with the meal and will definitely return, in fact, for lunch this week."

  • "Our waiter was helpful and attentive. Had the grilled scallop special - wonderful! The recommended wines were excellent and the dessert divine! Can't wait to go again."

  • "My wife and I took her parents to dinner for my mother-in-law's birthday. We wanted it to be special for this special lady, and Bellini's delivered. Service was friendly, prompt, and very knowledgeable. In addition to the wide array of selections from the menu, there were some interesting daily specials. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their appetizers and entrees. We asked our waiter to pair wines with each course, and the selections were spot on. One of the reasons we chose Bellini's is that Sara's favorite dessert is white chocolate bread pudding, and Bellini's is as good as you will ever have anywhere. My mother-in-law has not stopped talking about her dinner, and what a special experience it was. So again, Thank You Bellini's!"

  • "When this restaurant opened a few years ago, we stopped in one night after returning from vacation at the beat. It was a nice evening. The restaurant was very nicely decorated with a rustic bent and the food was quite okay. Nothing, however, that blew us away. Then, a month ago, somewhat on a whim, we went back. It was terrific! So terrific that we went back the following Friday night as well with a different couple. They thought it was terrific too. We skipped a weekend due to having tickets at a concert downtown, but as you may have figured out by now, we went back this past Friday night with yet another couple of friends. I simply cannot wait to back yet again."

  • "We've eaten at Bellini's in the past more out of convenience than due to its quality. However, not that the experience wasn't great before, but the meal and experience were amazing. The food, the service, and the atmosphere could not have been better."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Excellent main entrees that have been refined over the years. Very tasty. However, the bread pudding beats anything in New Orleans so save room."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Great Italian food as well as many wonderful seafood and steak options. Inventive chef specials and fresh takes on classics. Highly recommend - something for everyone on their menu! Service is professional, attentive, and helpful. Wine list is strong by glass or bottle. Beautiful decor and when weather permits, charming patio area for outdoor dining. You'll love this place!"

  • "Wonderful restaurant. First time there; certainly won't be the last. Server had great recommendations and was very helpful. Good range of options in terms of food prices as well. Our order ended up being relatively expensive, but if you drop down a couple of notches in the price range there are some good options on the menu for a regular night out."

  • "Food was excellent and Ryan our server was also excellent! The bread pudding is out of this world!"

    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Bellini's. The food was exceptional. The smaller dining rooms kept the noise level down which is important for conversation.All 4 in our party enjoyed their entrees. If there was a negative event at all, it was that our server (who was good in all other aspects) started off on a bad note with us.Our guests picked the wine and were not very knowledgeable. I know they were trying not to select a bottle that would be terribly expensive since they were not the ones paying. They chose one of the less expensive wines & asked the waiter if the one selected was good. He said, "Yes........for the money." We all got the impression that he was being snide and our guests felt chided. Seemed to be a putdown. Embarrassing."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Great food and experience. The service was a perfect pace so we didn't feel rushed at all. The only downside was that we were seated in a small corner in a separate dining area. This was great for privacy but we did feel like we missed out on some of the ambiance of the main dining room. We will definitely be going back."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "On a friend's recommendation we met another couple at Bellini's last Friday night. The staff was awesome even before we got there (they called to confirm our reservation). Our server, Tam***, was five star professional and should get a certificate or something for the excellent way she dealt with our demanding table. The food could not have tasted better nor could it have been presented better. The suggested wine pairings were spot on. All in all, we will be back and we will send others."

  • "Bellini's is a cozy and romantic place to dine. It is an upscale restaurant that everyone should experience... The food and service is "Outstanding." I recommended a friend and they said "they really enjoyed the experience." I would recommend anyone to try this relaxing experience."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Exceptional is the word that comes to mind, from the food, to the service, to the ambiance! Definately the best food I have had in a long time!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The food was excellent, and the service was impeccable. My only real complaint could be the noise level when we first got there, but after about 7:30 big groups and happy hour folks cleared out, and things settled down quite a bit. We used to go more often, hadn't been in a while before this last time, and now think we may put it back on the normal rotation."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "You can always count on great food and service! My favorite place!"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "I wasn't familiar with this restaurant but I'm glad I took the risk in making reservations. Charming atmosphere, sophisticated environment (without being too stuffy), and an incredible wine list. Our server was attentive but left us alone to catch up after not seeing an old childhood friend for 7 years. We arrived early to sit at the bar and start the catch up over cocktails. Adequate seating, but I was surprised to see the physical bar so close to the entrance of the restaurant. This wouldn't deter a repeat visit. Prices were on point with the quality. If you're only accustomed to chain Italian, you could suffer from sticker shock. Treat yourself to quality every once in a while, you'll become a fan of Bellini's."

  • "A dining experience enjoyed from beginning to the end. Not to bore you with details, the oysters were excellent, the blue cheese dressing was very tasty and lettuce was clean and crisp. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Please order the bread pudding for dessert. Plant to return in t he near future. A happy valentine experience!"

  • "Ordered great Spaghetti and served with fantastic Meatballs; girls- Manicotti Stuffed with Seafood (YUM!) and Chicken Mediterranean; with Cesar Salads( roasted and the best !). Guys ordered - Bread pudding - just so-so to us. Evening was fun and food delicious. Just wish server would have taken our cue and not rushed us so much. We tried explaining the need to discuss business over drinks and an appetizer but the server was relentless in interrupting our conversation. would have preferred that the server allowed us to let it be know when WE were ready so the conversation was constantly interrupted. Finally we gave up and ordered. Finished meal with after diner drinks. This was our fourth visit and never had a problem before."

  • "I took my wife and two girls here for an early valentines dinner (couldn't get in on the big day). It was perfect, the staff treated my 9 and 12 year olds as young women and took time to explain dishes. Food was great, wine recommendations were spot on. Prices are a little high for the specials and deserts, but a lot of quality food (no one could finish their plate). Plan to go back soon. My family had an amazing experience that will be a memory for all of us."

  • "My husband and I planned a day trip to Birmingham and tried Bellini's because of the great online reviews. Wow, it exceeded our expectations! Our friendly and knowledgeable waiter, Jared, took time and interest in recommending meals and wines based on our personal preferences, and we were both absolutely delighted with his recommendations. The chef's work is outstanding, and the ambience of the restaurant is welcoming, warm, and lovely. We plan to return!"

  • "We have been in the Birmingham area for about 1 year and this is our second trip to Bellini's. The food is simply amazing. It is the best Italian food that I have found. The setting is very nice. The back of the restaurant is quiet, cozy and romantic. The front section is the bar with side area for dining. This area is louder so if your look for an intimate dinner ask for the back. I would say reservations, while not required, are seriously recommended. The wine list is excellent. I highly recommend Bellini's to everyone however, be prepared to pay around $100 for two people. We had 2 entree's, split a slad, split a dessert, and 3 glasses of wine and out total cost was $110."
