    Wait staff were diligent and reassuring as they worked to accommodate a tight schedule (traffic = late arrival and we had a show to get to). The food was fantastic. Good portions. (Which for us means not too big). Recommend the fried gnocchi appetizer. Oh my goodness it was good!!

    We had an ok meal here before a show. Quality and presentation of the food was good. Noise level was tolerable. Unfortunately, we did not really care for the dish we tried (Tortelloni). Flavor combination of the filling (goat cheese and smoked chicken?) sounded good but wasn’t very palatable to us. The tortelloni were huge (4 to a plate) and seemed like they were made from a lasagna sheet folded into a tortelloni shape which made for thick, dense bites of pasta and large sections of just filling. Neither of us cared for it. The bread was a little bland, but the salad, dessert and drinks were all good. The waiter was attentive and even comped our dessert when he saw we didn’t enjoy our meal. We did have an issue with our bill too where extra charges (extra drinks and a cappuccino we didn’t order) were added to our bill. (The neighboring table had an issue too, so check your bill!) We had to wait a while for them to sort it out but they eventually did. I would give them another try to see if I like any dishes better but don’t think I would rush back.

    We were twenty minutes late due to traffic but the host was more than accommodating. Our server Robert brought a lot of energy and knowledge to our choices. Branzino was excellent, the veal medallions very tender in a delicious gravy. Lemon cello cheesecake was a nice way to end the meal. We’ve never been disappointed eating at Bellini.

    Service & ambiance were good. Food was subpar (a glorified Olive Garden with stale bread ) so spending a $130 per couple (there were four of us) for 2 apps, 4 menu options (not specials) and four drinks (no dessert or coffee), made this an overpriced meal for the quality of food. We do not recommend Bellini and we will not return. Too many exceptional Italian restaurants in the city.

We had the bruschetta appetizer, tender pan- seared veal parmigiana with homemade fettuccine, and delicious lasagna topped off with a refreshing tartufo for dessert. Our waiter Robert and the whole staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. We will definitely be back!

    Excellent food, but it's the service that really stood out to us. Even with a full house we felt like they were thrilled we were there and wanted us to come back again and again. I had the tortelloni affumicatti and my wife had the chicken parm with a side of gnocchi and both were amazingly good. We will be back again.

    This restaurant is consistently delicious. Their fresh house made pasta is second to none. They even make a good cup of coffee. Service is just as good as the food. Also love the lack of noise and the ability to have great food and conversation without having to scream. With a multitude of choices for a pre-theater/symphony dinner (or any other night) Bellini's is excellent.

    Very pleasant staff. We ordered the Chef specials for that Friday dinner and the meal was delicious; not rushed, and plated nicely. Start with the bruschetta, popular and always fresh, the olive oil is magical! We’ve eaten here before and will definitely return when we go to Philadelphia again.

    Love this place! Waiters are friendly and knowledgeable. Food is FANTASTIC. A couple blocks away from the hype, noise and bustle of Rittenhouse Square, Bellini’s has the ambience of a “neighborhood place” where the wait staff and the clientele know each other. It’s definitely our favorite restaurant in our ‘hood! We are new to Philadelphia and to Rittenhouse; this place has won our palates and our hearts!
