Sat at bar, very busy, so that may explain for poor service. Had to ask for fork, had to ask for 2nd drink, had to ask for condiment, never offered bread. Have had several items here and find most dishes bland but they love to pile on the mozzarella
The food and service were excellent. The only thing about this restaurant is that it is a little loud. Not awful but it was kind of loud for friends to have a conversation.
Our server was wonderful and my grouper was delicious. My daughter liked her chicken Marsala, but probably wouldn’t order it again.
The food was excellent. The service was impeccable. The cost is nominal.
All good except a bug landed in the coffee we had with dessert. Waitress promptly replaced coffee.
Great service and food!
The food is very good but unfortunately the reviews detailing the poor service are accurate. 10+ mins to get the drink order, water never refilled, same for coffee and the bill for the meal before we got dessert. The food is very good, too bad
When we got there we were immediately taken to our table. That was where the good experience ended. It took 10-15 minutes before our waitress came to take our drink order. It took another 5-10 minutes before our waitress came back to take our appetizer order. After our salads came out we had to wait yet again for our order to be taken. We even had the gentlemen who brought out our salads ask if our order had been taken for main course. Our waitress finally came back. We had both finished our drinks so the waitress took our glasses but never offered to get us another one. After our table was cleared and we got the check, it was another 7-10 minutes before she came back to get the check. This all happened at 9:00pm and I counted there were only 5 other parties in the restaurant so it wasn’t like they were all busy. When we were leaving we saw our waitress eating off a plate of food in the front of house. Very unprofessional. Food was good but would have been better with better service. Probably won’t be back here again.
Got seated right at reservation time, service was prompt and food delivered right on time. Excellent meal.
Food was good, service was good, atmosphere was a bit noisy. Tables too close together. We felt it was a bit overpriced. Surprised when we left and stopped at hostess desk asking for a mint and was told they had none, they had already put them up.
A great date night with my hubby! Food and cocktails were amazing and our server Tanith was extraordinary!! Very pleasant and on point with everything— knowledgeable and had a fantastic 😊 smile!! We have been here several times and are never disappointed! 👍🥂🥩🍷
Wrong order sent to our table. It was quickly corrected.
Long wait before server arrived to take our order.
Server only came back to check on us once.
Noise level is horrible.
Food is why we keep coming back.
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.
The food is always amazing!!!! Brads level of service is always top notch!
Our waitress was great. Food amazing however crab claws were disappointing. Slight odor walking to table on right side of bar.
Have dinner and lunch there most of the time when I come to Birmingham. Great restaurant with the food and service excellent! They all do a great job.
Great place to go recommend highly
Food was outstanding atmosphere is great. The service was good. Definitely going back
Our evening was very nice with good food excellent service and great wine.
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!
Everyone loved the food and the ambiance!
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.
As always the service was great, food was wonderful.
Bellini’s is an amazing restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere and terrific service. My husband and I have never been disappointed.
Excellent as always. I had the Shrimp Polenta which is like shrimp n grits. Very very good. Surprised that it had a dozen shrimp. Of coarse the bread pudding was awesome.
Delicious food but disappointing visit.
This is one of the best restaurants in the entire Birmingham area.
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!
Bellini's has it all: amazing food, wonderful ambiance, and a knowledgeable wait staff. It was truly a memorable meal and I recommend it highly.
Great food and okay service
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.
I thoroughly enjoyed this gem in Birmingham AL. I highly recommend this restaurant!
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!
Double birthday celebration. Extremely loud. Everyone was very friendly.
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.
