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.

    Bellinis is one of my favorite places in town and I was so excited to share with friends visiting and celebrating bday. However, it was a memorable night for the wrong reasons. Our server seemed to have a chip on her shoulder from the very beginning. When we asked questions, there was a definite attitude. Fried asparagus appetizer had no flavor and was stringy. Lamb special was good, but again stringy asparagus made it undesirable. When we asked for a steak knife, again an attitude! The waitress offered dessert but made no mention of a special birthday treat or anything. We even mentioned it and she said “I know” but didn’t try to persuade us on anything. Birthday card on table was nice, but a “Happy Birthday” or acknowledgement if special occasion would be nice too.

    Our server, Angelica was NOT good. She rushed us with our order, food, pay and exit. Upon arriving, I barely sat down when she came to me and asked what I wanted to order. I had not looked at the menu and felt rushed to give her something. Her demeanor was not pleasant and welcoming...to OUR TABLE. It was my friend's first time there and I wanted her to have a great experience. However, the experience was anything but great. Angelica brought us our tickets and walked off. We were still eating our bread pudding when she returned and asked if the tickets were ready so again, feeling rushed.. to give her our cards to pay, all while...STILL TRYING TO EAT! We had just finished eating (literally 5 minutes) when she came and retrieved the finished dishes and preceded to tell us "Thank you for coming and just so you know, we need to set up THIS table for 6." We were smiling because we were talking (prior to to walking up) and laughing and that all faded away. I don't think I was there for an hour. I was 15 minutes late, but to be rushed in the manner that we were was totally unacceptable. Even the hostesses were not very friendly. This was not my FIRST time here. But it definitely was my FIRST time engaging with the unprofessionalism that was displaced on Saturday night. I try giving everyone the benefit of the doubt because things happens and can shift your mood. But once that same energy is not the same with every table, then it definitely becomes a problem FOR ME. To say I was disappointed with THIS visit is an understatement. Especially, when I'm always recommending this location to others. I won't let this experience from visiting again, but customer service training is definitely needed.

    I understand menus need to change to keep things fresh, however, the ribeye was removed from the menu as well as the dipping sauce that was so good. Settled for the filet mignon, which was cooked perfectly, however, the fried onion strings were replaced with red pepper strings (not fried). We still love Bellini’s just a little disappointed that the menu items that kept us coming back were changed and personally not as preferable.

    One of our go to restaurants and we will continue going there. My wife had the lasagna and I had the shrimp tacos. Both were exceptionally average. We will probably just order differently next time. Still a great restaurant at good pricing for the quality food that they serve.

    The food was incredible and though the portions were a little smaller than expected, it was worth the price. Excellent ambiance. We will definitely be back! The only suggestion is the area where we gave the lady our name and reservation time is way way way too close to entrance door and it was quite crowded. The staff kept walking right in between us to get to the station area where reservations were. Again the food was very good and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the red velvet cheesecake for dessert was great too! Thank you for providing a memorable meal for my husband and me !

    Great, unhurried service. Our waiter was knowledgeable about not only the food but the wine list and didn't act like everything was amazing but gave his seemingly honest recommendations. Still, each item we had was fantastic. Will be back.

    The chicken marsala was ok, but seriously way too much seasoning. Served over a bed of angel hair pasta with mushrooms. That's it for $22.00. I do almost all the cooking and I LOVE to cook. My chicken marsala is more than twice as good as mine was, as testified by my wife who wanted to compare mine to theirs. Her lasagna was not to her liking at all. She took two bites and I took one. I thought it was ok but she refused to eat it. We had the outstanding server box the remaining and took it home to give it a proper burial.

    Dinner was great as usual. However, the service was subpar on this visit. The waitress acted as if we were a bother, and she could have done without coming to work today. Been coming for the last 4 years, and this is the most new faces staff-wise I've ever seen. So that may have played a role, but I did want to be fair and mention it.
