Valentine's Day is not a good occasion for rating a restaurant on its service. The small, spare restaurant was packed with diners, and the wait staff had difficulty keeping up. The food, however, was brilliant. We started with small plates of battuta and vitello tonnato and then moved on to the pasta. The casoncelli is addictive: once you've tasted it, you'll have a hard time ordering anything else on subsequent visits. Definitely fit for foodies.

As a frequent traveler to Italy, I was very happy to find Belotti. Their pastas -- particularly their stuffed pastas -- are as good as I've had in Lombardy. Their wine list is fairly deep, but also Italian, so it can be a bit daunting. Service at dinner is attentive. Less so at lunch.

Would give the restaurant five stars, but there was a family having a birthday lunch while braiding each other's hair at the table, while people (their table included) were eating. It was disgusting.

Wow. Second time back to Belotti and what a different experience it was! Here for our 4th wedding anniversary. Waiter had lots of attitude and seemed to be trying to irritate my husband. Thanks for helping us have a romantic dinner, Davide! Nothing says happy anniversary like a snotty attitude and dismissive service. Beef tartare was good, burratta salad was very good, pastas were just ok this time. Maybe they're so busy they don't need to try anymore? Hostess was lovely, though.

I have eaten at Belotti a few times over the past year and really enjoyed the restaurant - the food and service has always been excellent. Recently, however, I had an awful experience. I had made dinner reservations on the occasion of my partner's birthday. I was able to make a reservation for 8:30 PM, which I believe was the last reservation booking available for a Sunday evening. The moment we sat down, our server came to our table and impatiently warned us that the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes, so we would have to get our orders in quickly. She said something to the effect of "this will have to be more of a speed dating situation." We were taken aback by the abruptness and impatience our server exhibited. It was clear that there was no time or space to ask any questions about the menu or wine list, which was very frustrating. We asked for a few minutes to look over the menu. About two minutes later, our server returned and asked for our order; we asked for just another minute to decide as we had barely taken a moment to catch our breath from the previous interaction. The server said "one minute is really all you have" and walked away. While I understand a kitchen and front of house staff need time to clean and go through closing procedures, this was completely unacceptable behavior. I walked over to the bar area where another FOH staff member was standing to tell her we were very upset with how we were rushed and generally treated, and that we were leaving. The staff member told us there was no rush and that we could take as long as we wanted– this was the complete opposite of what our server had communicated. We immediately left and went down the street to A16 instead.

If the restaurant offers a reservation time to customers, they simply should not rush dinner service. Just stop taking reservations past a reasonable time for your kitchen to close instead.

It's a shame as I've really enjoyed the food at Belotti, but we won't be returning any time soon.

This is a really fun restaurant and was more important the food is The closest real Italy that I’ve been a long time. It’s really noisy starts early. I had a great glass or two of tuscan red that was the real thing. Highly recommend it for the food! Imagine that

We requested a table by the window in our reservation and there it was, waiting for us.
We requested advice for wine selection, and the wine was an interesting surprise.
The cold meats appetizer is very abundant. Share! The quality is superb.
We tried the tortelli di polenta.... DIVINE...
The tiramisu is glorious.
What a joy it is to dine at Belotti. Every time a special occasion.
Auguri!
