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.

We had a great meal, the drinks and food were very good. The service was great. We never felt rushed and our waiter was very responsive to our requests. We will definitely return.

Very good meal at Bellini's on a Thursday night. We each got a pasta dish and then we split a dessert. I really liked the Manicotti and my wife's linguine with meatballs was probably enough for two people. She warmed it up for lunch the next day and still had some left over. The bread pudding was excellent.

The food and service were excellent as we have come to expect having dined here before. The noise level, however, was awful. Out of curiosity, I used a decibel meter on my phone and the sound level peaked at 105 decibels, equivalent to a jackhammer. The average was 88 decibels, equivalent to a power mower. Really uncomfortable.

Came to Bellini's to celebrate our daughter's Masters degree commencement from U of AL. Great food ( my steak was a little over salted, but tasty), excellent bellinis and wine. Our server was excellent...attentive and helpful with menu choices. The tiramisu was amazing. and my daughter loved (but wouldn't share!) the creme brulee! I'd definitely come back here again!

Wonderful, quiet atmosphere — but not “stuffy.” By all means, have the Caesar salad and the fire roasted asparagus!

Our server, Jade, was exceptional.

This will be one of our “musts” when back in the Birmingham area.

There prime ribeye was amazing. The bread pudding was out of this world. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful. It was my first time spending over $100 with the tip for a meal for two, but it was so worth it.

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!

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.
