    Presentation of the Rabbit dinner entree was very poor. The meat was served on the plate with 2 orange slices as a garnish. That’s it. Perhaps should have read the menu description more carefully, but expected perhaps a sprig of green or dollop of potato to accompany the main. The rabbit was deliciously prepared, but sad and lonely on the plate.

    I was a bit tentative because of mixed reviews, but we had a great meal with solid service. I had a Caesar salad, and the hubby had the scallops to start. Salad was crisp and yummy, and scallops were also good. We both had pasta for our entree. I had the duck ragu, which was spectacular, and my husband got the tortelloni. We split gelato for dessert. It was a crowded Friday night, but our server was attentive and professional. I would go back in a heartbeat.

    Bellini is one of our go-to restaurants when guests come into town, or when we are seeing a show at the Kimmel Center. Their food is terrific, with many choices not seen in other area Italian restaurants. Their food is always fresh and flavorful. The wine selection is easy to navigate, and includes several really nice selections across the board. We have never had bad service, whether the restaurant is not full, or is super busy, and our server last night, Mike, deserves a shout-out for his attention and interactions with us.

    I haven't been to Bellini's since before the Pandemic. The food was quite delicious and service was quite good. The restaurant quickly became crowded and most tables were filled. The price is quite reasonable. I like the fact that it is a family owned restaurant and not a chain.

    My husband and I had dinner last night at Bellini’s and we were once again very pleased. I had the special which was the chestnut gnocchi with beef ragu which was unbelievable good. My husband had the veal saltimbocca which he also loved. This has become our go to place when we are in Philadelphia.

    True to form, the Spiro family never disappoints. Service was professional, friendly and informative. Although the specials sounded wonderful, we choose to order from the menu. After starting with a Cesar salad, my gf ordered a go-to item, fettuccine al ragu du antra (duck). I ordered linguine al ragu de astice (lobster and pesto), a dish I had not tried but is now on my rotation of favs. If you’re never been to Bellini, check it out

    We ordered appetizers, the pasta dish was ok, scallops were small and bland. We asked the waiter not to fire our main dishes until we asked because we wanted a little time in between courses. They fired it right away anyway and brought it right out before we finished our appetizers. For our main course we had 2 seafood dishes, both were over cooked. They attempted to fix the issue but it was over cooked again. It was a very disappointing experience.

    The order took more than an hour to arrive. The food was alright with extremely thick and undercooked pasta (tortellini) and alright lobster linguini. The drinks were okay. Philadelphia had much higher bar for dining experience especially in the center city, for the location Bellini is, they have to up their game. The server didn’t check frequently even though our food was delayed for an hour at the least.

    BelliniResponded on November 19, 2022Apologies, we did drop the ball and understand our error. However, we don't understand how you arrived at the the conclusion that your food "took more than an hour". You sat at 7:34pm and greeted by the waiter in which he explained the special's, took drink orders and upon taking your dinner order, he was asked to delay the food as your table was in no rush. Food came out at 8:42pm. We appreciate constructive criticism to aid in our growth as a restaurant but not when your timing inaccurate.

    How nice to have warm bread and olive oil provided - a rarity nowadays. Our gnocci appetizer arrived hot and tasty. The two entree specials comprised our main meal: seared tuna with fennel and butternut squash/cheese filled gnocci. We almost didn't order the gnocci entree, having gnocci for appetizer, but were glad we did. Sauces were smooth, rich, creamy, and complemented each dish. The gelati dessert proved a tad disappointing, as we were expecting bursts of flavor as one gets in southern Europe; alas, the flavors were somewhat muted, but still delicious. Service was without flaw and attentive.

    Party of four, prior to a show at the Kimmel Center. Host and waiter were great, friendly and attentive. A beautiful setting for Italian food. Three in my party had duck entrees, and I had a smoked chicken stuffed pasta. Lovely fresh salads. Affogato dessert was delightful. Would return if in the area again. Grazie to Bellini!
