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.

    Everything was delightful! The night was an experience not just a good meal! From the hello to the goodbye, everything was superb! We can not wait to go back! Everything we ordered was made perfectly and served much quicker than we expected based on how busy the restaurant was. Can not reccomend enough! 10/10

    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

    We have enjoyed Bellinis on many occasions. Last night the service was terrible. The waitress was unfamiliar with cheeses. We asked for no hard grated cheeses like parmesan or reggiano on our food. She eliminated the mozzarella on the caprese pasta even though we had indicated mozzarella was OK. On my entrée of the chicken artichoke pasta, there was no indication the dish came with a white sauce. We sent it back to for it to be served with red sauce. The waitress seemed perturbed. She essentially hustled through the rest of our meal. The entire experience was unpleasant.

    Excellent dinner and service. Bellini’s is always a pleasure. My wife selected the lemon ricotta linguine which was fantastic (I tried it, trust me). I selected a special which was roasted quail over polenta with a veal demi glaze. It was delicious but I wished there was more of it (quail should have been a clue but it was soooo good). Drink wise, my wife had the Italian margarita (which was a tall drink). I enjoyed the black walnut manhattan. If you enjoy rye whiskey it’s a winner!

    What a cute restaurant! Was visiting from out of state and needed a good spot to take our local client to lunch. This was perfect for the 7 of us. They sat us behind a curtained off section which really cut back on noise. The staff was very warm and attentive and the food was great!i

    My 5 star review is for the restaurant only. My husband and I had a cocktail at the bar before we sat at our table. The short, blonde, female bartender did not smile at us and seemed irritated. She also was more interested in a video on her phone that was sitting on the bar, than taking and making our order of 2 margarita's. Our reservation was was 5:00 so the bar and restaurant was pretty empty :(
