Excellent! Very authentic Sicilian/Italian food choices. Felt like I was back I Catania eating at a local restaurant. Will be back again soon.
Everything was great!
No wait. Food and wine were excellent. Best Italian restaurant in Corpus Christi.
The Thursday night Farm to Table tasting menu with wine pairing is one of the best meals I have had in Corpus Christi. Skip the chain restaurants and you will fall in love with Bellino's authentic Italian cuisine. We will be back many, many, more times!
I had never been to Bellino's before. I had read the reviews and wanted to try it out. It had a cozy atmosphere, great service, and food was very good. My kids even ate, and they are picky eaters. We were the only people with kids who where there at the time, but felt very comfortable and had a great time. We will definitely be back!
I really, really liked the mellow music. The decor is pleasant. The tables functional.
The bread was lucious. Bellino's had a special menu for New Year's Eve, and amazingly, it was priced similarly to the normal menu, with a bit of jazzing up. Hubby had the regular Italian salad, with chicken and I had a marvelous special of homemade-tasting pasta with mushrooms and truffle oil. Since neither special dessert appealed to me enough, we skipped the sweet. It was only as we wrote the tip that I realized they offered to another table the regular dessert menu that night too. Ah well, we had had so very many desserts this trip, we needed to miss more than just this one. However, the entrees were so wonderful that maybe we missed something delicious.
The service, considering there were very few customers that early was too inept. They evidently keep to their designated area, instead of helping each other give the best service to their patrons.
I've been visiting Corpus Christi twice a year for the past several years and had yet to find an Italian restaurant. By chance my niece and I overheard a conversation about such a place and I had to ask. Best decision ever. It turned out to be the owner and his wife selecting gelato to add to their menu. Bellino's is authentic Italian and reminded me of my favorite place at home. Atmosphere was quaint and staff was very friendly. The energy recognized my niece and I on his rounds through the dining room. At the end of our meal he sent gelato to our table before it was on the menu. It was very much appreciated. I can't wait fir my next visit to go again. Buon appetito
My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary at Bellino's. We wanted the night to be special. We were not disappointed. The staff, the ambiance, the food and the service was top notch.
Server was overwhelmed but was a busy night, she mixed up our order but fixed it quickly
Great Italian food. Best Veal I’ve ever had. The waitstaff is excellent. We will definitely be back.
Very tasteful establishment. The food and service were wonderful. It is a little small so reservations may be a good decision.
It was amazing.
The service and food are outstanding. Even though it's a small place, it's quaint and romantic unless there is a loud customer nearby. We like the Italian music, the menu options and the service. It's a nice place for a romantic dinner or quiet business dinner.
Can you say fabulous? It clearly is a step above any Italian restaurant in town. We got there based on a tip & Open Table. Also, a nice wine selection.
Bellino's is a great neighborhood find. We just moved to this area and found them in October. Since then, we have been there several times and will certainly go back again. The cappelini and carbonaro are especially good and they serve warm bread and olive oil for dipping.
The food has tremendous flavor, much more robust than your average fair. Price is about what you expect, not an exceptional value in terms of value ratio, but good for a date night or special occasion.
Our food was delicious and we had great service. The food is consistently good and the service is also consistently good. A small but nice bar area. Nice selection of wine. Loved the cheese plate appetizer. I had the fish special which was drum with a ground almond crust and it was fantastic--perfect size and nicely flavored with lemon. Nice fresh crunchy salad. I would say this place is geared more for adults than children which was just what we were looking for.
