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.

The food is always great! Our server was awesome. We were there for an anniversary dinner.

The table closest to us was loud so I could not rate the ambiance high. Glad the group was having a good time!

We will be back, maybe next time we will request a different area to sit in.

My wife and I were celebrating our Anniversary and decided to return to one of our local favorites. We have never had a bad meal here and always pleased with our experience. Plus we were craving the meatball app. Katie was awesome, drinks were spot-on, and another great experience in the books.

Overall, this restaurant is always good to very good. Steak was undercooked from ordered temperature but it is better under than overcooked. Pasta overwhelmed the grouper piccata dish. Crab claw appetizer was very good. Service was very good.

The evening started out very well, until our entrees came out. My husband and I both ordered the Angus Ribeye. His entree came out looking really nice plated, the 16 oz. ribeye was cooked to order. Mine, not so much. I had two small thinly sliced ribeye, no more than an 8 oz. combined, which was mostly fat and under seasoned. It looked like the ribeyes were cooked on a pan and not grilled like my husband’s. We spoke to the waiter and sent my plate back. WELL, the waiter brought back my plate and gave us a lame excuse that the chef accidentally cut the meat smaller than expected. Unfortunately, my husband got the last ribeye, go figure (at 6pm!). I asked if I could select another entree and was told they were limited with what they had for the night. I ended up eating the under seasoned, pan fried ribeyes. Very disappointing! And, we were not comp for my entree. This is the worst experience, not sure if we will return...

Went there for an anniversary and the service top notch. They showed us to our table where there was a handwritten "Happy Anniversary" card on table for us. I didn't notify them it was our anniversary, they had it on record from a couple years ago. They also let us pick a desert for our anniversary dinner. The staff was great and the atmosphere is great for an anniversary dinner.

Food was enjoyed by all. The Fire roasted romaine salad was “ok” - it was too big for the plate and not really “fired”, hard to eat because it was hard to cut and kept falling off the plate. The side of salmon was great! Fettuccine with added crab was great as was the spaghetti and meatballs.

Ordered the surf and turf. Scallops were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Filet was over cooked and over seasoned. Didn’t finish the steak. Wouldn’t order again. Will go back to the restaurant.

I was expecting the food to be much better after hearing my friends give it high marks. I ordered the special which was sliced steak on a bed of mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables. Just mediocre, in my opinion. My husband had Shrimp Alfredo. He said nothing special about it. Not bad food, but no real reason to want to go back. Our server was very helpful and professional , the service was good.

So we were in a small room off the bar. It was appropriately distanced with only one other table. The service was great. The food was wonderful.

The bar tender talked so loudly that we could barely hear each other. We brought new friends from out of town who had never enjoyed Bellini’s before. I doubt they will ever want to go back. We wanted them to think that Birmingham is a great place to visit.

Disappointing.
