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.

Loved our dinner at Bellini's! Delicious food, attentive service and I love the setting. We were seated in the back room and I was so glad because I thought it would be quiet. (Last meal there was in the larger room and it was painfully loud!). Unfortunately, there was a very loud (boisterous laughter the entire meal) group of 8 seated in the same small room. Our anniversary date would have been perfect with a little less noise. Still we will come back and will recommend this place!

Fabulous experience. I had the Mediterranean Chicken and my husband had the seafood risotto, both of which were delicious. I wish I could remember our server’s name. He was perfect—super attentive with a great personality. He has a shellfish allergy, if that helps. We would definitely ask for him again. I love that we can book this restaurant on open table. It was easy, and we were served promptly.

First, I must say I'm a big fan and a regular of Bellini's. I love this place, and this is for improvement - the pizza crust is horrible - tasteless and like cardboard. We had a white pizza which has marvelous toppings. But, there's no point in making pizza if the crust is bad. The crust used over 1 year ago was phenomenal - the best tasting crust you ever ate. It's only problem was it was softer and wasn't stiff enough for toppings. Well, run and get it back!!! Or, go get crust from Marco's or even Pizza Hut - their crusts are tons better than the pizza crust you are serving now!! Either improve the crust or take pizzas off the menu.

The eggplant parmesean rocked!! So glad it's not paper thin - nice thickness and very well prepared. The marinara sauce is very good. Great portion size. Loved it, and I will get it again. I love the side of fresh mushrooms - yummy.

Aly's the BEST bartender at Bellini's in my opinion!! Her martini's and pouring style are the best!! I Love happy hour at Bellini's!!! Bon Appetite!

We ate there for my 24 year old son’s birthday. The food is great. The chairs are very uncomfortable. Tables are too close together. We enjoyed ourselves other than the seating. The wait staff was really good.

This was a great place for date night with my husband. It was quiet and spacing between tables was very good. Lots of good options on the menu for food and drink. Special for the night were very impressive too. We had the crab claw appetizer, grouper special, seafood paella, and white chocolate bread pudding. From start to finish it was a great meal! Our server was excellent and very helpful when trying to pick our meals. Will definitely be going here again!

My daughter and I dined last Saturday prior to a theater performance. Bellini's is fast becoming my favorite place to go for a relaxing atmosphere, good service and fabulous food. I can't say enough about the service. The servers are knowledgeable about the specials as well as the extensive wine list. Reservations are best if possible. Whether you live in Birmingham or passing through - this is a wonderful experience you won't forget.

Food was great as usual with exception of them being out of grouper my husband was excited to try! A bit noisier than usual but service was outstanding- Robert was on point and accommodating! And we will return as we have always had great experience and food here!! It was our anniversary and they recognized this and I received my favorite desert from here the delicious Creme Brûlée 😋👍🌹

Bellini’s is a great spot for any occasion. Reservations are a must for dinner. When the weather is war enough the outdoor seating area is such fun as well as the couple of tables in the bar area. The food can always be counted on to be really good.

The filet steak special was not what I expected. I was told it would be the same as ordering a filet from the menu, however the filet had a heavy dark brown sauce that was overwhelming. The staff should inform of any sauces etc. if I hadn’t been so hungry I would not have eaten it. The potato and broccolini was also floating in the sauce too. Not a good dish

It's been awhile since we've been to Bellini's but once again it did not disappoint. My husband and I wanted to take out an old friend and it was a great setting for that. The food was wonderful and the service stupendous. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. My friend and I had lasagna and my husband had steak. We each had dessert as well, chocolate cheesecake, bread pudding, and a torte, all amazing (we sampled each other's. I'm still partial to the bread pudding but be warned: it's extremely sweet). The check was fairly pricy but expected with salads, entrees, two glasses of wine, and desserts. We don't normally spend this kind of money. I'd say it's a special place for special occasions for us, not a go-to on a weekly basis. The only complaint I had was the noise level. It's a lovely, intimate space but quite noisy.

Valentines special for two fish filets, 100.00$ we decided it was way overpriced. One of us ate pasta and meatballs, value for this meal ok but for two days had heart burn from the meatballs, would never never order them again. Other member of party ordered 15.00 $ salad with chicken, very, very skimpy with the chicken.
We will not return to Billini’s and do not recommend.

Valentines Day. Back room temperature kept wildly fluctuating. Ladies had to wear coats through most of the 3 hour dinner. Very slow and temperature extremes very annoying. Too many great choices in area to deal w these issues. Evidently this is an ongoing issue that they choose not to manage according to the bartender.

Went to Bellini's for Valentine's Day. We had reservations and were seated right when we got there. Our server was Carlee and she greeted us and asked us for our drink order. Everything came out great. Our waitress never checked back in with us after we got our food, water was empty for awhile and had to ask for refills. Other than than we had a good overall experience.
