    I’m a minor expert on carbonara. The lunch menu offered carbonara with lobster and crabmeat. I rated it a “10+” on my scale. My friend ordered the ravioli. She liked, though the sausage was too spacey for her. We both had the tomato soup, and it was equally good.

    Our meal was outstanding. We had the meatballs for an appetizer and they were delicious. My husband had shrimp scampi with pasta and I had the penne vodka pasta with chicken. Both were awesome. The server took good care of us and it was a very enjoyable experience….

    Wonderful appetizer and entree!!! Hubby had pizza and I tried chicken piccata. Both were wonderful! I usually get shrimp and grits which are amazing, so excited that I tried something different and loved it just as much! And of course, the white chocolate bread pudding is a must!!!

    Bellini’s never disappoints. Our food was fabulous. Hubby enjoyed an authentic Italian meatball appetizer followed by one of the featured specials- linguine with squid and hearts of palm. New world meets old world at its finest. I chose my two eternal favorites- grilled romaine salad,and seafood risotto. The risotto is loaded with fresh catch fish, scallops, shrimp, and the unexpected but delicious touch of andouille sausage disks. Their wine list is all inclusive - included the expected Italian inventory-and their cocktail menu offers traditional favorites as well as tongue tickling modern mixology options. (Try the gin / ginger combo!) Due to lack of planning- we were too full for dessert- but you haven’t had bread pudding until you’ve had it at Bellini’s. Lastly, John with our waiter. As in- how we used to be served when we went out to dinner. In this day and age of robotic, inattentive, non personalized service- he was rare treat. Ask to be seated at his station.

    We had a birthday dinner and as always the food and staff are amazing! As a lot of restaurants do, for a party of 6 the gratuity was automatically added and I didn’t review the ticket very well as it is very dark in there. So I missed it , and added another 20% on top of that. The next day when I was reviewing the receipt and I noticed (completely my error), I reached out to them and they quickly and gladly refunded the amount requested . I think it shows that they care about their customers and for that I feel good about frequenting their restaurant. I always order the Chicken Picatta . It is the BEST all around Birmingham.

    We celebrated a birthday dinner for two. It was lovely in every way! The food was spectacular! We had grouper and scallops. We also loved the jalapeño Mac n cheese and the brussels. Our server was friendly and informative. We highly recommend this restaurant! I can’t wait to go back!

    BRING BACK THE FILET FRICASSEE!!! First off, I love this place and go often. The dishes have changed over time, and I’m cool with that. Every once in a while, there’s a really cool special, but the menu changes and specials of late tend to be centered around seafood dishes. Some are excellent and some are… a little underwhelming. The seafood ravioli this time around was good, but had a few small issues. I can deal with a little fishiness… it’s fish, so that’s a thing. However, I used to really enjoy having a great steak option to fall back on when fish isn’t something I want. The Filet Oscar is kind of meh (just my opinion), but the fricassee was amazing. The combination of a perfectly cooked filet, the sauce, brussels, and finger potatoes made for a great bite! Loved it. BRING IT BACK, PLEEEASSEE!!! Also, bring more Siracha with those amazing fried artichokes!! So freaking good! Always get those! Seriously the star of the evening. The Wedge is always superior. Service was excellent and everything always comes out in a timely manner. My favorite local spot!

    Our second time to eat there. Jennifer, our server was great and the food was amazing. Great wine selection also. It feels like you've stepped into Europe with the decor and candle-lit tables. The only thing I would change would be the background music. It was quiet, and not a bother, but would add so much if it had an Italian theme.

    The table she tried to put us at was right in the doorway to the bar, when other tables were available, asked for another table, as I requested on my reservation, not in path. Waitress was good forgot our bread had to ask twice and no steak knife for husbands Steak Oscar. Meals all great, Grrouper Picante, Chicken Marsala and Shrimp and Grits(really polenta). We all cleaned our plates and were happy with our secections. Very quiet in dining area, 5 empty tables and we got there at 7 and left at 9, and they weren't filled. We have been here 3 years for New Year's and this was the least busy it had been even during Covid. It is a keeper for us.

    We're from the Gulf Coast, so we know seafood. This said, my wife believes the shrimp & grits was the very best she's ever had. And my seafood risotto was loaded with seafood in a delicious sherry cream sauce. Then, to top off our dinner, we shared an outstanding bread pudding. Our servers were very attentive and professional. We had a reservation and the restaurant was ready for us when we arrived. My wife has now asked me when can we go back to Bellini's!! This was our first visit, but won't be our last.

    Both the food and service was outstanding!! My wife had a chicken dish she absolutely loved and I had the prime rib which was perfect. For an appetizer we had the Charcuterie meat and cheeses which we loved. Our server was very knowledgeable and her service was excellent.
