Great ideas often occur in the most comfortable of settings and Bellinis is no exception.

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.

    As always every aspect of our dining experience was excellent. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was very impressive to our guest who was eating there for the first time, and John, our waiter was as always, great and attentive. Bellinis has become our “go to” for special occasions!

    I’ve dined here a number of times but this was unfortunately the worst of them. My cocktail was mostly syrup and undrinkable and two of our food orders were incorrect. Our server was kind and helpful in trying to correct the issues but in the end our party left disappointed and unsatisfied. We recognize that this was likely just an off day for this establishment as all other times we’ve dined here have been fantastic.

    The service was outstanding, especially considering it was Mother's Day! I had grouper Piccata over linguini. It was delicious. My husband had Fettuccini Alfredo. It was rich and creamy and cheesy. We have been to Bellini's several times and it does not disappoint.

    Visiting Birmingham for Indy race and kid’s birthday. He ordered the Chicken Alfredo was great and the his White Chocolate Bread Pudding was amazingly delicious. Appetizer of 2 meatballs was also very good, but only 2 is odd. Originally ordered the Veal parmigiana but was told they were out. Disappointing, but I unfortunately ordered the Ribeye which was awful, probably the worst I have ever had, and really believe is was the quality/cut of meat. This was overly fatty, steak was entirely too thin and cook was more rare than med. rare with plenty of tendons to cut thru, perplexing. No, didn’t send back because wasn’t complaining for his birthday, but really an awful steak, especially for a ridiculous $50. I should have selected a pasta to play it safe. I’ll be back to BHM soon, so will likely try Bellini’s again, but will play it safe with a pasta dish. Well maybe, the place is a bit overpriced for quantity, but we’ll see what other Italian Birmingham has to offer first.

    The food was fantastic! But at the premium price, the service was not up to par. 1 star here. Jennifer S. Was actually curt/rude when we asked questions about the menu. We were not offered drinks when we sat down. Then our drink glasses ran empty, with no offer to refill. She got the checks mixed up too but we settled that among ourselves because getting her attention and asking her to fix it was expected to be unpleasant based on the rest of the evening. This was not the experience we were hoping for, but the food was very good so, there is that.

    From the time we were greeted by the hostess, to London’s great service, and to the amazing food served, and everything in between. Bellini’s provided one of the best dining experiences we’ve had at any restaurant. Next time we are in Birmingham, we will definitely comeback.

    We’ve been going to Bellini’s since 2014 but we hadn’t been in a few years. We had forgotten how good it was! The bread and olive oil was good, and both of our entrees were delicious. The white chocolate bread pudding there is our favorite dessert anywhere. We can’t wait to go back it won’t be so long this time.

    This is one of Birmingham's Best hidden spot to be on your first date or date night out because they offer "Outstanding" service, food, and drinks. Can't forget the warm, romantic, and cozy atmosphere💕 and their white chocolate bread pudding. Would recommend giving it a try and judge for yourself. Latonya Smith
