Bellino's Ristorante Italiano - Rockport

Italian
Bellino's is a quaint, cozy, intimate and comfortable place to dine. When you enter it is like walking into a typical family trattoria that you can find in the small towns all over Italy. The smells of an Italian kitchen welcome you even from the parking lot, the sound of Italian music playing and the banter between Susan & Francesco in Italian really make you feel like you are in Italy! But when you take the first bite of your entrée and you taste the flavors of Francesco's cooking, is when you really feel transported to his old family trattoria in Sicily!

    Another fantastic meal. The fish was excellent and the veal picatta also wonderful. Better wines this time.

    We had an okay experience but we're overall underwhelmed. They served warmed up store bought type dinner rolls. Marinara was tasty, but my wife's food was cold. Nothing to write home about. Service was ok. Staff was friendly.

    Waited for over an hour to get food,and both orders were incorrect, nor were we offered for it to be corrected. All others arriving after us were served promptly. Marinara tasted like tomato paste and water. Small place only open 4 hours Saturday, should have been better . Food was bland and overpriced. Will not be returning.

    We were seated early of our reservation. The 4 of each had different items and each of us loved our dinners. Drum, veal parm, caccuico, carbinera- all were authentic Italian cuisine and used the freshest ingredients. With the salad, meals are large enough to take home leftovers. Wait staff were very attentive. We try to make Bellino's a stop every time we're in Rockport.

    We made a reservation for 6:30 and when arriving noticed the restaurant was quite crowded. We were seated immediately, but didn't get our food until 8:00!! They must have been overwhelmed, but it would have helped tremendously if the servers (and there were plenty for the amount of customers) would at least have said something to us once in awhile rather than walking by, looking straight ahead and not speaking. Just admitting that they were swamped, running behind, missing one of the cooks......whatever......would have made the wait much more pleasant. The food, however, was good.

    The cacciucco was outstanding as was the veal piccata. Decent house wine at a good price especially during happy hour.

    Had read a prior review that wasn't happy their reservations weren't received through OpenTable. We had no such problem. Server and others very attentive to us and all customers dining this evening. Went out of their way to accommodate us. We'll be returning for more.

    We made the reservation thru open table, however the restaurant had a large wedding party scheduled. When we arrived for our 6 p.m. reservation, they said nothing about a delay in seating us because of that party. After a 30 minute wait, we asked to be seated separately as there were smaller tables open. They kept saying the large party was leaving shortly. I told them we had an 8 p.m. event to get to. We were seated at 6:50 for a 6 p.m. reservation. If they had told us of the problem when we first arrived, we could have decided if the delay would be ok. Instead they just left us sitting there. The server was nice and polite. The person responsible for water was a complete grouch. Not one thank you was acknowledged. One of the dishes arrived cold, but since we were in a hurry at that point, it was not addressed. The place was obviously overwhelmed. Communication would have gone a long way to smoothing things. The bread was great and the meals that arrived hot were tasty.

    We've eaten at this restaurant a number of times over the past few years and never been disappointed. It's a fairly well done, sort of Mom and Pop type Italian restaurant. Pasta is done well, seafood options are done well. Everything has a light touch, not overwhelmed with oil or cheese or both. Good flavors. Some of the things are fairly routine and nothing special (such as the salad), but in Rockport, Tx there isn't a lot of demand for super creative. The night we went there was a dinner happy hour that was just ending and it looked like a number of tables with large parties had been seated just before we arrived, so service was a bit slow, but not horribly so.

    This was out first (of many more visits) to Bellinos Ristorante. We were seated and our server quickly brought water and warm rolls with garlic EVOO. Their menu was diverse with something for anyone wishing authentic Italian food. A very nice wine list, too. The side dish pasta was al dente and perfect.

    Being 2nd generation Italian-American, 30 years of my life in NY and 30 in CA, for our 3 months in Corpus so far, this place was fair, decent, pretty good. The tomato sauce seemed to originate with tomato paste, which is a mortal sin for true homemade Italian sauce. They need to start it at noon to maybe begin serving at 3 pm. Salad was good but drenched in olive oil. Overall food was bland and there was nothing outstanding. Service was fair. They forgot to bring me my wine without asking again and never read us the specials like they did at the next table. This is supposed to be an Italian restaurant. Where's the atmosphere? Lastly, I thought prices were OUTRAGEOUS and comparable to CA prices. What is that all about?? We may try the Corpus location, just to see if it tastes different for all this money, but was closed today and I heard Bella Luna is good. We'll see.

    This was one of the worst dining experience we have ever had. The service was awful, there was a hair in the food, and the food was terrible. This place is with in arm reach of fresh seafood and the shrimp was over cooked frozen food. We will not recommend this place and make sure to share our experience as well.

    my boyfriend and i went here for valentines dinner. we made reservations and knew it would be busy on a saturday night as well as a holiday. we waited almost 10min to be brought water. it was clear that the staff who were working were not used waiting tables as people who were seated well after us placed their orders first. we ordered our meals and were given soup and salad. the soup was a tomato base. the texture was that of marinara saucea instead of smooth and creamy. very off putting and both of us could not finish the soup. i ordered the beef lasagna and my boyfriend the spagetti and meatballs. his spagetti noodles were severely under cooked....it could not pass for al dente. my spagetti had good flavor bit there was a layer of grease on my plate from the meat not being strained before the lasagna was assembled. the staff was pleasant and it was romantic but the food was terrible. we definately will not come back again. we were both disappointed.

    This restaurant is very good for the small fishing town of Rockport, Tx. The alfredo sauce to me is more flavorful than the red sauce but this is a personal preference. Definitely a great place to go in the evening!
