While the service was friendly and good you need more then one server on the floor. The portions were tasty but small... should be advertised as a BYOB so people do not have to run out in the cold.. but nice place..

When dining we were made aware that the restaurant was newly acquired as the owner (if recall correctly) Victoria took time to come to table introduce herself and ask for any feedback.. really thought that was great customer service. The staff was very attentive and polite.. The evening was very enjoyable and we are looking forward to making Bellini's one of our local spots..

Upper West Side Gem: Very tasty and interesting menu. We love Bellini. If we lived closer we'd be there 2 x month, but it's a nice walk home after a Scrumptuous Meal, with very nice service. Pizza next time from the wood burning oven. Friendly staff (+ handsome gentleman manager / owner), great menu, Very Satisfying experience with generous portions. Am enjoying reheated doggie bag as a I type. GO There & Enjoy!

After a great welcoming one expects the service to be at the same level, but it was far from that.
Food was just Ok, brussel sprouts in my Carbonara were not very well received.

The food is amazing and we would go back in a second if we lived nearby. This is a small little neighborhood place that doesn't get too crowded despite a nice happy hour offering. The name suggests it's a little more casual than it is, but the menu is a nice balance of great pizza and great Italian food. The octopus was fantastic and the pastas. The server seemed to need a little more training since many questions prompted him to go find out, and a few items seemed to take an unusually long time.

The food was excellent- chicken and fish Specials. The wine recommendation was spot on. Good service. I'll be going back for sure. Small place though, so cozy, not lots of room in main seating area. Best for 2-4 people up front, but there's room in the back also.

Our waiter misunderstood us and brought the wrong food, but it was amazingly delicious. Perfect appetizers and breads. The host was welcoming and congenial, and the ambiance is both welcoming and made us feel special. My pasta was cooked perfectly. We might go back and try the pizza.

My only complaints are that we were there on a slow night and the food still took some time to come, and that our waiter seemed not to hear us well and we had difficulty understanding him.

The food was very good at this restaurant. I was please with the service as well. My one complaint had to do with the wine I ordered. While I am not a wine snob, I unsatisfied with the wine advertised and what I received. I ordered the 2013 bottle that was advertised on the menu but received the 2014 as they were out of the 2013. This was not the end of the world, just a small criticism to an otherwise pleasant evening.

Bellini on the UWS (Columbus and 83rd) is quaint and casual. Prices are moderate for what you get. Its offerings are current, fairly classic, and nicely prepared - tasty but not exceptional. Wine by the glass, also, is moderately priced with acceptable quality.

In summary, I enjoyed the meal and as a local spot, it's suitable.

 (New England)·Dined on December 9, 2016

Good appetizers (we got the charred brussels sprouts - B+, and the carpaccio - A). Main courses were not great. My wife liked the spaghetti & meatballs (the meatballs were A++ genuinely fantastic, but the sauce tasted like Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee to me, with a strong ketchup flavor/texture), but we both agreed the Cavatelli Alla Carbonara was just plain bad - like bland, watery, diner-style mac & cheese. Deserts were exceptional, however - the panna cota was great, and the sorbets and gelati were among our favorites. We were there with our young kids after the Natural History Museum, it's about a 10 minute walk, it's kid-friendly, the service was great. Our waiter seemed to only speak Italian, but service was friendly and attentive without hovering, and we managed despite the language-barrier (the rest of the staff spoke English, and were helpful with subway advice and so on). It's a small, physically cramped space. However, it was almost deserted on a Friday night at 6:00, which is a worrisome sign in a restaurant-heavy area. We'd go back again, but would avoid the carbonara.

The restaurant was a great fit for the end of a day in NYC. Even though it is a rather tight space with not much room to move, the overall aesthetic pulls it off wonderously! The food was delicious, and I would highly recommend the Lava Cake for Dessert, as it was fantastic. The drink list is very extensive, and the foods very diverse in Italian Cuisine. Overall, I was very pleased!

First of all the manager has absolutely no people skills. I was celebrating my 80 birthday and all the manager said was your early. Quite a moron. I like the restaurant but the service is not professional and I really would come back for certain dishes but not to often. The wait staff has a language barrier and they should have been more receptive. Went to another restaurant for my birthday and they were great and gave me a dessert comp. BUSTAN

Bellini is a warm, cozy, Italian bistro that definitely qualifies as a "neighborhood gem." In an area with literally hundreds of little restaurants, this is one I'll be sure to visit again. The butternut squash ravioli and the roasted brussel sprouts were both excellent on a chilly fall day, and there is a decent and reasonably priced wine list.

All the staples you want in a local Italian pizza & pasta restaurant, prepared extremely well. Loved the pasta fagioli. Loved the meatball appetizer. Loved the quartro formaggio pizza. The icing on the cake (or should I say the cheese on the pizza)? It is very, very affordable.

Needed a place that would accommodate our family group of 8 including baby boomer UWSers and their nieces and nephews ages 25-35. Not easy to do without breaking the bank but Bellini came through. Nice easy-going vibe, delicious food and helpful service. Plus the a/c was great during a heat wave! Loved eggplant parm and pasta dishes. Definitely recommend.

This was our first time here and it was very good. We got tired of the pizza in our Lincoln neighborhood so we came uptown where many of our favorite restaurants are located in the West 80's on Columbus and Amsterdam . This is a pleasant small place. We had the margherita pizza , the cavatelli carbonara and chicken parm - all very good. The pasta is perfectly prepared as was the pizza. We'll be back.
