    FYI future patrons: I was charged an additional 10% for alcohol and another 10% for service. Sheesh. Edited review: I was not charged 10% for service - I misremembered my bill. Bellini emailed me a copy of my receipt with the following: The City of Philadelphia liquor tax rate is 10% of the sale price of an alcohol beverage which is paid to the city. As you can see you were charged the 10% liquor tax in accordance with the City of Philadelphia law and no service charge. Thank you Bellini for the follow-up and the correction.

    Excellent Italian food, generous portions, reasonable prices, and excellent service. Can’t ask for much more than that! The noise level was higher than I’d prefer, but my wife and I could easily hear each other. (Unlike a couple of places I could mention but won’t.) This was our first meal here, but we’ll definitely be back.

    Best service in the city. Staff will remember your name and treat you incredibly well. Food and drinks are excellent. The calamari was perfectly breaded, seasoned, and fried. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the different sauces were incredible. Very close, intimate location, however you can still hear your conversation and you won’t hear others.

    As usual, we had a terrific meal in a dining room that is alive with laughter and good cheer: Caesar salad, a side of fresh pasta aglio e olio, and shrimp mediterraneo, finishing with the affogato (vanilla ice cream with a shot of espresso poured atop). Service is always attentive and entertaining. This is a place to go!

    Do not miss out on Bellini. We dined for restaurant week and the food was simply amazing. The apps. delicious, pasta fresh and the flavors popped, entrees amazing. One of the entrees was the Dover Sole, simply out of this world delicious!!! Drinks were on point and the Lemon Mascarpone Cake tender and the burst of freshness of the lemon was a perfect ending to an amazing dining experience.

    You can't tell a restaurant by its public facing. The exterior is unimpressive. The noise level inside is very loud. The interior decor is a shade tacky. BUT they serve some of the best Italian food we have eaten outside of Italy. The menu is extensive, imaginative, and filled with courses that are beyond delicious. The staff are friendly and efficient. The bartender knows how to mix a drink with the best of them. It had been a while since we had eaten here, but our experience last night will have us coming back often. Again, the food is amazing!
