Great food and service. Wait staff was very courteous, insightful, and respectful. Was a business meeting and they gave us ample time to discuss business and weren't interrupting etc.

The food as always was excellent. The service was, well, horrible. We arrived 5 minutes early for our reservation and were seated promptly. Then, we waited. After twenty minutes, I got up and ask the lady at the door if we would be served and she replied “yes”. I inquired “soon?” And she responded “yes”. No apologies about our wait as she had been the one who seated us. The server was quite nice but they forgot our salads and didn’t really seem to care that happened. The final disappointment was waking out and seeing five servers on their phones at the bar. I love this place because of the food and will give it another try. I suppose if the owner was there this evening, things would have been different.

Neither one of us liked the marinara sauce on the side pasta. The veal piccata was tasty but there was very little of it. The eggplant parm was tasty with a creamy marinara sauce, but I was given the end of the eggplant...so a large piece of the tough peel. The appetizer was presented very well but average in taste, small in size and high in price. Overall the food was good, not great and very pricey for what you get.

The BEST restaurant in Corpus. I’m from Washington D.C. and come to visit my son who plays basketball at TAMUCC. I’m spoiled in DC with superb dining and Bellino’s is the best food, ambiance and service you are going to get in Corpus. They are bringing Italy to Texas.

Food was plentiful and served at appropriate temperature. Umberto Salad was super outstanding. Alcohol selection is only beer and wine. There is no bar for mixed drinks.

Service was incredibly slow.

Bellino's is one of my favorite spots when I'm craving authentic, delicious Italian food. This gorgeous restaurant has a charming ambience that always leaves me feeling relaxed, and their wine selection is impressive! Whether I'm in the mood for lasagna, parmigiana, or one of our local fresh fish choices (Black Drum!), Bellino's never fails to deliver. Susan and Francesco Inguaggiato are the best!

Atmosphere was nice, and I liked the cleanliness. Bread was very good, the wine was excellent. We ordered salmon, lasagna, and a chicken dish. Everything was delicious except the chicken dish. The chicken was extremely dry and thick. Overall an excellent restaurant with good food. Don’t get the chicken though.

Spectacularly good food
Excellent wine suggestions
But
Service was essentially awful and it was so loud we were unable to talk to the person next to us
I actually had to find a manager to get another bottle of wine.
This was the first time I wasn’t offered pepper for my salad or grated cheese for my pasta course
I can’t understand how it took over 2 hours to get our main courses. We were a group of 10 but by the time our last 2 main courses made it to the table several of us had finished
We will probably go back because the food is great not as a group

I would recommend to friends most certainly. However, Valentines menu left me in the lurch a bit. NOT anything near what I expected. I assumed menu choices already online. Kinda dIsappointed in that itself. But, food was good as always, have had even better dishes a time or two though from here. Pricey too, but MOSST often, worth it. Spent more on 2 entrees, dessert, and 1 ice tea ( coffee never did come to the table, and NO alcoholic drinks or wine) was more than anticipated, even tho quality was pretty darn good. Will jreturn again, but will be watching for menu changes, and maybe more options in entree’s.

The food was amazing. You don't usually get house made pasta like this. We had a nice quite table in the back for Valentines day. We were early, the service was outstanding. We will be going back here.

My special request table was ready when I got there. We were greeted by many of the employees. We were brought water right away and asked what else we would like to drink. On Thursday's they have a Farm To Table dinner with locally grown foods. I had the special pasta and my guest had the chicken off the menu. They were both fresh and tasty. Evonne our waitress was really great.

We usually have a very nice experience, but this time they were understaffed and the portion sizes were smaller than usual. It was the night before valentine's day, and they were pretty busy, so maybe they were just caught off guard. The food was delicious as always.

January 17, 2020. I made a reservation on open table for a birthday. When we arrived we were asked if we wanted to sit in a quieter back room or sit in a regular, full room with other guests. This was very thoughtful of them to ask! Very professional waitstaff and hostess! Great atmosphere and the food was amazing. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. We will definitely be back!

It was NY eve, we sat down at 7pm, order was taken at 7:15; a wrong appetizer came 30 mins later then soup came 15 mins after the appetizer. Our soup actually came at the same time as the table next to us that these customers sat down at around 7:45. Waiter didn’t check on us much and we had to ask for complimentary bread as we were starving and to have water refilled. At 8:15, my husband finally got up to look for our waiter checking where our entrees were. He apologized and said kitchen was backed up. At 8:30, entrees still didn’t show and we told the hostess that we decided to just pay and leave because we didn’t see our waiter. The entrees finally came 2 mins after but we refused to stay and just paid and left. We visited during our business trip in Corpus Christi on NY eve because of the good reviews about this place but ended with disappointment and this totally ruined our NY eve. First ever 1 star review, I wish there’s 0 star. Will never go back.

Waited 15 at the smallest table in the place. No one waited on us. After asking for service the staff ignored us. Walked out. Was gonna buy a bottle of wine, apps and entrees. Took my money elsewhere.
