Great dinning experience
We loved our dinner from start to finish and our waiter was very attentive and well versed on the nights foods offerings!

This was my second visit to Bellini's. Miller was my server both times. He is an excellent server, with good knowledge and a great sense of humor. He made our visit an overall pleasure.

Another excellent dinner from a favorite dining spot! Smaller dining room this time so a bit noisy, but the food and drinks were still excellent!

We will be back again!
We thought the food was very good and our server really went out of her way to accommodate us. Only downside was the it was a little loud.

A Little Taste of Italy
Great Italian, wide choice of pasta dishes, plus seafood specials and steaks. My husband had the scallops & sausage special and he scraped his plate clean! The scallops were hearty and the sausage sauce not too spicy. I had the chicken parmesan, which was generous enough that I ate half and took the rest home for another dinner. We split the white chocolate bread pudding with vanilla gelato, which was presented in a wide-rim bowl with "Happy Birthday" (for me) scrolled in chocolate on the rim. It is fabulous!
Service with Katie was excellent, water glasses kept filled. Bellini's will become our "go-to" Italian place -reasonably priced, small & not crowded (although we ate early and it was beginning to fill up as we left), delicious!

Went for my first visit on
Went for my first visit on 6/7/13. I will definitely go again when I am in town. Great restaurant without having to drive into downtown B'ham. The food and service was very good. We loved the baked oysters for our appetizer. The grilled ceasar salad was delicious. This seemed liked a neighborhood favorite, as a lot of patrons seemed to know each other, definitely my kind of place.

Italian in Birmingham
Bellini's is a great find, better that what you would think would be in Birmingham, Al This is our second time here, and this time we brought a friend from Philadelphia and our daughter. Her husband had to work so could not come. The food is excellent and creative. Waitstaff is very attentive. they have a nice room in the back for gatherings. Wine list is very good. The only downside we found is the bartender does not know how to make a martini. We Googled martini in order to show our waiter that the one my wife was served was made incorrectly. They served us a second one made a little better, but half the size of the first one that she could not drink. Other that that everything was perfect.
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food every time
My wife and I have been to Bellini's several times now, and each time it has been wonderful. The service is outstanding, the food is always great, and the wine/beverage selection is very good. We recommend Bellini's for anyone looking for a new great dining experience in Birmingham. Our last time there they had a wine pairing dinner with Frank Family Vineyards, and what a treat that was. Outstanding restaurant!
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had heard of Bellini's before but never been. Finally decided to try them. Had a bit of trouble finding them because GPS gives wrong directions ; it had them in the middle of a lake! Not fancy but very nice. Excellent wait staff; our server watched us for needs and left us alone. We had grouper and paella. Of note: the food came to the table HOT. They must have walked it right from the grill to the table. Can't remember last time that happened. Dessert menu a bit skimpy. Overall a very nice experience. Have already told a friend to try them.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was wonderful and the staff was excellent. It was a nice place to go with my wife on a rare night out. I would (and have) already recommended this restaurant to my friends.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I went to Bellini's with an old friend. We went early in the evening and were shown to our table promptly. Our server was friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful (brought home 2 boxes) and delicious. I highly recommend the bread pudding!
7/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Other than my wife's shrimp in her pasta being over cooked the evening was great. Shrimp can get away from you in the kitchen if you look the other way for a minute so I will allow a mistake like that once. On the other hand there were no shrimp survivors from her plate.
We had a very nice bottle of Portuguese wine from the Duero region with our dinner. You do not see Portuguese wine very often in BHM so this was a nice change. Congrats to the steward who brought this one into the house. Their wine list is not extensive by any means but this singular Portuguese is a standout.
Service was timely but not hovering and there was no rush to order and "turn" the table. We enjoyed the evening at our pace and this added to the experience.

Great Food, but in a loud setting
I recently spent a nice evening with a new friend at Bellini's. The wait staff was wonderful and offered excellent service. We each had one of the chef's specials: Grouper over Risotto and Ahi Tuna over Jalapeño mashed potatoes. Both dishes were well prepared and beautifully presented. Both were delicious with good flavor combinations. My only complaint is that we were seated in the small back room with three tables of 4 and one large table of 8 or more, and the room was extraordinarily loud. Overall though, it was very enjoyable.

Love this place!
On this visit I went with a dear friend who had never been to enjoy a meal and catch up. The food was delicious and the waiter was wonderful-- he allowed us the time to chat over wonderful cocktails and dinner, never rushing us. This continues to be a favorite!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect size entree and the white chocolate bread pudding is amazing!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bellini's goes the extra mile
Our family and friends had a celebration dinner that couldn't begin before about 10p on a recent Saturday night. They basically kept the restaurant open and a great waiter and some kitchen folks there until almost midnight to allow our large party to celebrate.
The food was excellent as always, and despite the hour, no one rushed us at all.
Just an amazing display of purpose on the part of an awesome local restaurant. People and their dining and celebrating pleasures come first at Bellini's!

As always, consistent tasty
As always, consistent tasty food, great service and a great place for a night out.

We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at Billini's and it was outstanding. The ambiance was great. The food was spectacular and the dessert (Neapolitan Bread Pudding) was sinfully good. I highly recommend visiting them for dinner.

I choose this restaurant after seeing it in a Birmingham magazine, it was all that plus some. My guest enjoyed it so much she said she is going there for her Birthday as well.

We felt very welcome and everyone happy to have us there. Our meal was delicious and we asked the server to choose our wine and she made a great choice. The Bread Pudding was an excellent way to end our evening. Fun night out.

Excellent once again!
I took some friends who had never eaten there and they loved it! This is one of my very favorite restaurants! The service is always friendly and professional, the food imaginative and delicious and I love the cozy atmosphere. A winner every time!

Great restaurant !!
Wonderful food and service! This was our 3rd trip to Bellini's and we will return. We love the food and atmosphere. Mushroom appetizer and seafood dishes were exceptional. Tried the Neapolitan dessert. It was very good but the white chocolate bread pudding dessert is the best. We had it during a previous visit. Must try!!!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
In a hurry to make the Mumford and Sons concert just up the road, our group found the staff friendly and efficient. Orders of salads and First Courses were ready soon after placing them. The veal parma and portobello were delish. We went on our way happy with the meal and the wine. It sure beat what you get at The Amphitheater.

First cool evening for patio dining
Favorite spot with great service every time there.
Can't go wrong here for a romantic dinner, patio dining in a week night (limited seating)
Great steaks, seafood, and pasta
Wine list is one of the better in the greater Birmingham area, so look it over and try something new.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time to eat there and it was wonderful, meatballs and linguini were delicious. Wife had chicken parm looked and tasted wonderful, wanted to try desert but was too full, portions were great!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoy our meal. We were their Saturday afternoon, it was quiet. Food is delish! Bread pudding a must try! Love the decor!!! This could be my new favorite place!! Can't wait to go again!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Great Service
Great little place to have a nice night out, or just for drinks and a good time! Excellent service at the bar and from the wait staff. Had the filet special with a port wine reduction and blueberry sauce...don’t like sauce on my steak, but this was great! Table also had the pistachio encrusted salmon...a great flavor and a nice touch with the risotto bed. White Chocolate bread pudding was excellent. Really no knocks against this place! If I had to point to anything, I would say the wine list was the least strong aspect of the whole experience. Limited by the glass selection, and not a lot of "strong" Cabernet options.
Will be back for sure!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Dining Experience!
This was our first visit, and it was for dinner, so we can't speak to brunch/lunch experiences. Everything about our experience was stellar. Our server(s) were excellent. The food was delicious, and the presentation was beautiful. Our drinks were mixed perfectly. This place was a little pricier than most places we go, but it was WELL worth it for the experience we had. We would recommend this place to anyone!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bellinis is my new fav!
Every morsel of food whether it is lunch, dinner or dessert is scrumptious!
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quite a Find!
We took a chance since we aren't from the area in trying to find a good Italian meal and we were not disappointed. Met the owner operator chef also and was very impressed with the menu! I had the Pappardella Bolognese which was excellent! The noodles were served to perfection and the sauce was rich and delicious. My dining partners were equally impressed and the white chocolate bread pudding for dessert may be one of the most succulent dishes I have ever had. Truly an outstanding experience.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining experience!
My partner and I discovered Bellini's by chance about six months and we have been hooked ever since. The food is always carefully prepared and is cooked exactly the way we request. What sets this restaurant apart is the high quality service they provide. I have yet to find a restaurant in the Birmingham area that can match the service at Bellini's.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
This was my first time to Bellini’s and I was so impressed with the atmosphere, the service, and the food/wine options. The portions are actually the amount that real people eat, which is sometimes rare to find at fine dining establishments. The menu had a nice balance of “foodie” selections as well as upscale versions of Italian comfort food favorites. The waiter was pleasant and did an excellent job of explaining the specials- I could have listened to him explain those all day long. We will most definitely be back for our next special occasion.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
On our "Visit Regularly" list
We enjoy Bellini's and go there every month or so. Reservations for dinner are a must as this place stays crowded. It's an energetic place and can be a bit noisey depending on where you're seated. Tables are close together, and with the noise, I wouldn't consider this a "romantic" spot, but good for a date. Food is very good and well presented.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our food was excellent and
Our food was excellent and the staff we encountered was also excellent. The noise level was much better than in the past. I had actually sworn off of ever coming again because of loud men wandering around the restaurant with drinks in their hands and actually leaned against my chair which pushed me closer to the table. Parties in the main dining area are just not good. It takes all the ambience away.

Service was excellent. The
Service was excellent. The waiter was attentive without being intrusive, gave us plenty of time to enjoy a glass of wine before we ordered. We both had the fillet. The fillet was cooked as ordered and was excellent. The sauce that came with it was not good at all. It tasted like it should have been on a barbecue pork sandwich. However, the sides, the Mac and cheese and the fingerling potatoes were very good. We had the Italian salad and the Caesar, and they were outstanding. The Tiramisu was large enough for two, was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Except for the sauce served with the steak, which we did not use, it was a fantastic experience.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of the best places to eat!
Bellini's was fantastic! The food was outstanding, the service impeccable. The wait staff was always at the ready with refilling our drinks, bringing us fresh bread. The food was outstanding. My husband and I thought our dinners were out of this world, in taste and preparation. We got the bread pudding for dessert which was incredible. We will definitely be going back to Bellini's. The ambience was romantic, intimate, with old world charm, but still casual and fun.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food at Bellini's Ristorante & Bar is delicious! The portions are very generous. This was our first time visiting the restaurant and we will definitely be back! I started off the night with a Mango-Pomagranate Martini which was mixed to perfection.....not too strong, not too sweet. My entree was the pork tenderloin with Parmesan mashed potatoes. The pork tenderloin was cooked perfectly, very tender and juicy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.
