About Bellini's Ristorante & Bar

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.

Excellent food and service by Ashley. Bolognese ravioli and seafood risotto were very good.

The food was magnificent! I had the chicken piccata and it was the best I have ever had and I am super picky. My husband had the pork chop over collard greens and field peas. Sounds like a strange combination at an Italian restaurant but it was SO good! We will definitely be back!

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.

The service was wonderful. Ashley did an outstanding job. The food was excellent and they had several gluten free options. This was our second visit and it was better than the first. We highly recommend Bellini's to anyone who loves great food in an amazing atmosphere.

Seated by the bar, so extremely Loud! Cold air blowing directly above us, so we were unable to remove our coats. These conditions make it very difficult to enjoy a meal. So, I put most of my meal in the to go box and went home. Very Very Disappointed!!!

 (San Francisco)·Dined on January 20, 2018

My friends recommended Bellini's, and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious. They have daily specials which the server described well. The special salad for that day was great. A good wine selection by the glass, and a large selection by the bottle (3 pages)! It was a little loud at dinner when all the tables were full. The place feels cozy and somewhat like an Italian restaurant in Europe. We will definitely go back!

The food was amazing as always but our service was awful. Our waitress, Bella was not friendly at all. She seemed very put-out to be at work, maybe? Which was surprising because i have been to the restaurant on countless occasions & had work functions there because of the food and service. She may need to consider another profession besides working in customer service if you can’t smile or seem to take an interest in the job. Otherwise, the food was amazing & her being our waitress did put a damper on my birthday celebration but we had a good time & will still come back- but we’ll make sure to avoid sitting in her section!

The food was really good. The fried crab claw appetizer was a great way to start. The Manhattan from the bar was one of the best I have had. The one thing that set this experience apart was our waitress Jade. She was knowledgeable, sweet, and really took care of us. Overall, the whole experience was delightful.

Brad was our server and he and the food were both reasons we continue to go to Bellini’s. This place has some of the best food and service you’ll find anywhere in Birmingham. From the appetizers, cocktails, entrees, and that white chocolate bread pudding that they’re known for, this place never disappoints. Highly recommend reservations several days out as they’re always packed. Great job Brad and Bellini’s team as always. We will be back!! Thank you!!

I’ve been there a few times and this visit was a little subpar given the past. The waiter wasn’t bad, but he wasn’t very attentive. I ordered the ribeye and it was just okay. The veggies were mushy and the twice baked potato was over cooked. One of my friends had to sent his medium well steak back because it was rare, like still mooing. I tried my wife’s crusted grouper and it was really good. I enjoyed the crab claws and the highlight of the evening was the Bellini oysters, amazing.

All and all, I like the restaurant and most visits are excellent. I think I would choose the crusted filet over the ribeye in the future.
