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.

I treated my husband for his birthday yesterday, and Bellini's did not disappoint. From the ambiance to the food to the excellent service, Bellini's is the perfect choice for a special occasion or just a romantic evening out.

We get together with friends from Huntsville once a quarter and always choose Bellinis to meet. Without fail the food has been excellent until recently. 2 of the four meals were sub par and disappointing. Pasta dish with salmon had an extremely small piece of salmon that was the smallest ever seen on any meal served. Our guests made that comment before my wife and I did. Another meal- lamb chops was also very small- 3 chops for $36 which was overpriced for what was served. The other two meals were great as usual. The server was very nice and obviously inexperienced but trying hard- no complaints there at all. With a little extra training she will be excellent as she had a great personality. Realize COVID has adversely affected many businesses so attribute this let down to that and hope it’s a temporary issue.

Our server, Bernadette, and the wait staff, provided excellent, timely service. Could not have been better.

The appetizer charcuterie meat and cheeses (selected by the chef) were a great start, probably not necessary after having indulged a bit of the complimentary billowy soft-interior, salt-encrusted bread, but it was the wife's birthday, so why not? The entrees were just as good. I had Mediterranean chicken. The son had meatballs and spaghetti; the wife, shrimp pasta; the mother-in-law, lasagna, and her husband, shrimp and grits.

Everyone raved over their entrees. The only possible improvement might have been a bit of red pepper for the wife's shrimp and pasta.

The bread pudding for desert (one order shared by all) was the perfect ending to the evening. With drinks (a bottle of red wine, a gin and tonic for the stepfather, and my light beer), the tab came to just under $300, tip included.

This is a very good restaurant. Highly recommend.

Bellinis is one of the most consistently good places to eat in Birmingham. I’ve had their pasta, steaks, and seafood as well as just a bowl of tomato basil soup - all delicious. Do not go unless you save room for the best dessert in Alabama, the bread pudding, with a scoop of gelato.

Food was typical Italian fare. Nothing special with average presentation.

Service was terrible! Had to ask for bread, salt, pepper and olive oil. The salt and pepper were in metal bowls instead of shakers and hard to use. The spaghetti was very watery but the fettuccini was excellent. They had no carpaccio or the crab claws that they said were on the menu. This restaurant has really gone down hill. They no longer honor pre-paid gift cards and this is probably not legal. They used to give a small dessert for a birthday but they stopped doing this. The manager should get his act together or be fired. I will not go back and will go to Carrabas or Amore instead for Italian food.

I got the seafood platter, it was a disappointment. Small portions for $40 would never order this again. The scallops were good, but the shrimp were average to below. The piece of fish I got was so small it would not have fit on a biscuit. The salad? in the middle of the bowl was just there for garnish to make the plate look full nothing like trying to eat a bunch of arugula with no dressing what was the purpose of that?
My wife enjoyed her pasta and my son enjoyed his tacos. The best thing was the bread pudding and meatball app. If I ever go back I will go not to eat a meal but to have an app and the bread pudding.

Have been trying more locally owned restaurants and took my wife here for her birthday. Neither of us were disappointed. Fantastic meal, great service, nice atmosphere. Food was amazing and our waiter (Brad) was phenomenal and knew his stuff. Will definitely be going back and recommending to friends.

Every bite of my food was the best I have ever eaten! Prices seem a bit steep to what I am used to but that will not keep me from going back. The food came out in no time; we went for dinner at 5 pm on a Saturday (we had reservations) and were out of there before 6. Would definitely recommend it.

The acoustics in the restaurant is not good. Normally the noise level is tolerable but on our visit, there was a group of about 8 people sitting across from us who laughed and cut up almost the entire time that was a little uncomfortable. At another table, a man sitting with another couple talked so loud that you wouldn't realize that he was sitting at our table. If I knew what was going to happen, I would have asked for a table in one of your smaller rooms (We were seated in the main dining area.)

I brought my wife for a quiet birthday dinner. This was noted on the reservation. We were seated next to a rather large, noisy party. Our waitress walked by us several times to attend to them and other tables near us and we were unable to get her attention for drink refills, dessert and finally the check. Dessert was good but I thought it would be complimentary for the birthday as advertised. A happy occasion...it was not.
