Great ideas often occur in the most comfortable of settings and Bellinis is no exception. With that in mind, in 2008 after discussing ideas over a bottle (or 2) of wine, the concept of Bellinis was formed. Come see why "Life is Sweet" at our place. Relax and enjoy your own glass of wine among friends and see where your discussions take you. At Bellinis OUR Passion is YOUR Food and YOUR Service.

Bellini's features 100% Prime Organic Beef, housemade pastas, veal, seafood and classic Tuscan Italian dishes. Bellini's maintains an extensive wine selection and weekly desert specials. Our bar opens weekdays at 4pm for drinks and dinner service begins at 5pm Monday to Saturday.

We have two private dining areas available for large parties. Our private dining room accommodates 20 to 25 patrons and features a 48" TV with audio visual capabilities. Our Intimate Dining room accommodates 10 to 15 patrons. Reservations are suggested.

    Bellini’s is a favorite for us. The food and service are consistently wonderful. Our server tonight was London. We’ve been fortunate to have him serve us in the past and he never disappoints. I highly recommend Bellini’s for a great dining experience.

    Bellini's has long been one of our favorite restaurants. The food yesterday was not up to par. I don't know if they have a different chef or what, but we didn't even want to take leftovers home. This is the only time that the food was not outstanding.

    Just happened upon this suggestion online as a possible place to eat while in Birmingham. Our waiter, London, was sooo helpful and smiled the entire time he talked with us, coached us on what to order as well as told us about the restaurant. They are local and have been in business for 14 years! Great atmosphere, not noisy, we were able to carry on our conversation easily and not hear others around us. While everything we ordered was delicious, the Mediterranean Chicken won the prize for us.

    Arrived a few minutes before our reservation and were greeted warmly by the receptionist. We were seated quickly and we’re waited on promptly. The food - grouper (pan seared) and pistachio crusted salmon - was fantastic. Our drinks - classic martini and spicy old fashioned were superb. Our waiter - John was great. Had a great time.

    Only one vegetarian choice which was Veggie Lasagna. It was very very cheesy and light on vegetables. Ordered a salad that the waiter forgot to order. He finally brought it after my lasagna but I was full by then. Lasagna was very rich but pretty good. My fellow diners liked their food, pork tenderloin and chicken cacciatore. Bread was good…it had an herb topping.

    Salad wedge is not 1/4 of the size it used to be, but yet the same price. Has been our goto dinner for years, but food was very bland and had to ask for salt and pepper to help with the taste. Not sure what has changed but not what it used to be.

    Waiter screwed up the order. Ruined the evening. I was done with my entree before my wife received hers. The waiter asked my wife twice what she was having. Twice she answered shrimp scampi. When entrees came to table she was given scallops. Told waiter she ordered scampi. Order was taken back to kitchen. Short time later scallops were brought back to table and she was asked if she wanted to eat them while they were preparing her scampi. She said no. I said now I have my order and she has nothing. I was asked if I wanted them to take my order back and keep it warm while we wait. I said I didn’t want it sitting under a heat lamp. Needless to say I finished before her order arrived. We both ate alone. We declined dessert as I was very annoyed. Our bill was $116. I only left $10 tip to express our disappointment.

    My wife and I celebrated our 21st anniversary this last Saturday with dinner at Bellini’s and later a movie (Top Gun-great movie). Our meals were outstanding and our server, Jeff, was awesome! Loved our salad and we ordered chargrilled shrimp as a side. Delicious! My shrimp scampi and my wife’s chicken piccata were superb! The portions were quite generous and we could not finish it all. We also ordered sausage pizza to take home, and it was delicious. We shared Bellini’s signature bread pudding for dessert, which was absolutely yummy and quite filling. Such a lovely dinner (made extra special by Jeff). We LOVE Bellini’s, have been eating there for years, and have always enjoyed our dining experiences at this reasonably-priced, fabulous Italian restaurant. We recommend it highly.
