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.

This was our first visit to Bellini's and can't wait to go back! Everything was perfect from the cocktails to the food and the service. I had the Seafood Risotto and it was one of the best dishes ever. Also a very hearty portion (took more than 1/2 home). My husband had the linguini and meatballs and raved about the sauce as well as the meatballs themselves. Excellent service with the perfect balance between being attentive yet not bothersome.

The food was less than delicious. It's sub medicore attempt at Italian food. If you're standard is Olive Garden, this isn't much better. The calimari was nearly flavorless, chewy, and small. The "marinara blend", tasted old.

The wedge, with the gorgonzola dressing, was the star of the meal. Second was the parsnip puree, which was only available on a weekly special, so don't get your hopes up.

The grouper tasted like it had been frozen for a while, much like the calimari. The gouda mashed potatoes were less mashed and gouda, and more like someone forked a baked potato in a bowl. I didn't even taste the gouda. Spinach side was barely mediocre.

The eggplant on the eggplant parmesan was soggy, and discolored in a way that also suggested that it had been frozen for a while. As if that wasn't enough, it tasted oily and overcooked. The marinara on this also tasted old and burned. The mozzarella was ok, but there was what tasted like a pesto aeoli drizzled all over it (not listed on the menu description or by the server) that was more mayo than anything and further cluttered the dense "flavors" of the dish.

I sat at the bar while waiting on my date. The bartender, Scott, was less than pleasant or attentive. I guess his disinterested routine works for some, but for the money, most would at least like to be offered a menu or more than "What are you drinking?"

I nearly forgot the bread. It was almost very well executed. However, the bread pudding was an assault of sugar and mess, instead of quality flavor and texture. There are far less expensive or better options within a couple of miles. Less expensive, take your pick of the many chain places up and down 280. For FAR better food and service with similar prices, Amoré Ristorante is a mile further up 280 towards Chelsea.

I can't see me subjecting myself or anyone else to this place again. My $130 will be spent elsewhere from now on. Yes, $130, and the ONE salad wasn't included with the entrees.

Bellinis is a beautiful restaurant hidden in a shopping strip. The atmosphere is really cool and the food and specials are always quality. This is why I picked it for a first date. Unfortunately our service was so terrible that it made our first date experience rather unenjoyable. I’m quite certain our waitress forgot about us a number of times, going one period over 30 minutes without so much as a check in (and this was before we put our inner order in). She would be attentive to new tables around us, then walk right by us forgetting to ask us our drink order or anything else. My date had to call her over after several passes by ignoring us. She then acted rather put out when requested to tell us the specials. I’ve actually had this waitress before, when I sat outside on their gorgeous patio, the service that night was terrible as well and I just chalked it up to being in an outside section. I’ll return to Bellinis, but quite frankly if I get this waitress again, I’ll have no problem asking to be resat.

Bellini’s is a great place, with excellent food, good service, and unique specials. This time around I had the Ribeye, served with brussels and a twice baked potato. The steak was cooked to perfection. The brussels were good with the balsamic reduction, however they were a bit dry. The rice baked potato, while tasty, seemed a little dried out as well. All and all, we enjoyed the evening and had a good experience.

This wasn’t our first time to dine as we were disappointed in the past but were in the area and decided to give them one more chance. Our server was very pleasant but we did not see her foe extended periods. My wife ordered meat ravioli rather than cheese but it might as well have been cheese as it was covered in a half pound. She scraped it off only to find three small ravioli. Very disappointed in the dish.

We love this restaurant, and maybe they have spoiled us. However this time, they overcooked, then undercooked my filet mignon. The offer of free desert, rather than removing the filet from the bill, was irritating. As I left I realized that I do not yet have a debilitating disease, and felt pretty good about the whole thing.
