We have eaten at Bellini Grill a numbee of times, and were always well satisfied. They were very accommodating when our group added 2 more people at the last minute. Our waitress was extremely helpful and attentitive. However, I am disappointed that BYOB is no longer an option (byob with a hefty fee p/p), although there is a bar. I was also disappointed that most entrees do not include any vegetables at all. The number of a la carte add ons significantly raised the bill from well priced to overpriced.

Consistently excellent food and friendly, helpful owner and staff. We have been returning here regularly for over 10 years (since they opened).

Six of us went on a Friday night and it was a fun, lively atmosphere. It was a little loud for easy conversation. There were a few large parties which may have been the reason for just about average service. The food was delicious, everyone seemed very happy with their choices. The eggplant parm was fabulous but it was served alone on a plate. I think it could have come with some accompaniment, even just a little garnish would have improved the look of the plate. We all agreed we would definitely come back again before our dance series subscription.

Mediocre food, at best.
Items not properly explained, about a 180 degree off in one case.
Poor filleting skills table side. Horrendous. Better served to do yourself.
Aggressive, demeaning on the verge of abusive management.
Bartender and server were pleasant, wine was good, but even with that, if there was a 1/2 star it'd be a stretch to give it that.
(almost 200 reservations in open table with no reviews, but this was so bad had to leave one)

Amazing food wine and dessert! The service was great and we will definitely be going back often! The price of everything was very reasonable too.

Great food and ambience was perfect. I highly recommend the Manhattan. Just an FYI--if you order the whole fish--make sure to tell them not to filet it if that's how you like it. Overall, the service and food were excellent. Would definitely go back.

Bellini Grill is one of our favorite, regular restaurants in Center City, perfect for pre-theatre, or later in the evening. Solid food, comfortable atmosphere, great staff and owner!

It had been a few years since we were last here. Lots of changes since then like the bar. The website was not encouraging though as I was unable to get a lot of information from it; difficult to navigate. We got the small antipasti which could have been alittle bigger for the price. But it did a good job of preparing us for our main course. I got the crab ravioli which were had a very light dough but plenty of crab. However there seemed to be some communication issues between my husband and our server. My husband asked for the duck but when it arrived it was not what he expected. Thinking he was getting a roast breast of duck, he received the duck Ragu with fettuccine. My husband ended up enjoying it very much.

After taking our orders though, our server seemed to either ignore us or suddenly became the FT bartender and never returned to our table. Other servers and possibly the owners took care of us the rest of the evening.

As we are subscribers to the Philly Pops we also received a discount on our meal.

Total disappointment. We waited an hour and 20 minutes from when we arrived to get our food. We told our server that we had an hour and a half before we had to leave for a concert, and he said it would be no problem. I did not expect to have to scarf down my meal in 10 minutes. When the table next to us got their food before us, and had ordered the food well after us, I went to the server and demanded to know why. He said he would go to the kitchen and check on our food. The food was also disappointing. There was no flavor in any dish, and after being told the pasta was all homemade, I had penne that tasted like it came out of a box. With all the choices of Italian restaurants within a couple of blocks, I don’t know how Bellini is still in business. We will not be back.
