    It was absolutely excellent. Service very professional and friendly. The Dover Sole was fresh and simply prepared with vegetables perfectly cooked. The gnocchi was like my mom used to make. Cocktails were imaginative and delicious. Perfect meal with friends.

    A charming and authentic Italian restaurant that has a family feel. My only comment would be the set menu, consisting of 3 courses, which I was unaware about while booking. It’s unusual these days to have a fixed menu. The food quality was good, and the service very friendly and quick. Thanks!

    Bellini has the BEST restaurant week menu. The food is just amazingly good. The special pasta in a pesto sauce was out of this world. We will definitely return. Don't forget to look up at their beautiful ceiling.

    This restaurant wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. We went for restaurant week and the food was kind of lazy and not flavorful. It felt like everything was frozen or premade. OUr favorite thing ended up being a tomato/mozarella/pesto salad, but the pasta and meat dishes were just okay. Staff was super friendly, though!

    The staff was wonderful. Super accommodating. It was restaurant week and they had a set menu. 3 course meal spaced out nicely to allow time to order drink between courses. It was slightly loud at first but it quieted down as the night went on. It never got loud enough that my party couldn’t hear each other.

    This place has the best hosts, waiters and staff I have ever met at any restaurant. They are really so accommodating and care about your dinner and experience while you are there. My wife and I drive here from NJ 2 or 3 times a year for special occasions! This is our go to romance and celebration spot! We absolutely love it here. I highly recommend. Best ravioli and Best Chicken Parm I've ever had!! But everything is great, those are just my go to favorites.

    We came in for the Restaurant Week menu, which is a shadow of the regular menu. The dishes were not complicated or terribly inviting. The red sauce was quite good, though, in conjunction with a veal parm and the house red. The staff was on point and worked well with one another and treated us really well, which I appreciate more than you know.

    We had a great meal at Bellini. We arrived 5 mins before our reservation and the host immediately thanked us for arriving on-time and apologized for our table not being ready. We had absolutely no issues with waiting and our table was ready a few mins later. Our waiter, Mike also apologized for the wait. Their concern for their patrons is very appreciated. In one word Mike was GREAT! Very friendly, funny and attentive. We were not drinking that evening and he commented we were saving the room for dessert, so true. For appetizers we had the grilled calamari which was great. For our main meals we had the steak special, the halibut special and the branzino. Each was delicious and cooked to perfection. Desserts consisted of the Chocolate mousse, limoncello mascarpone cake and profiterole with beautiful plating. The sound level was a bit higher than we prefer when we arrived but once the large party left if was much better. We had a great time shooting the breeze with Mike and the host stopped over twice to see how we were doing. Overall an amazing dining experience and highly recommended.

    Our dinner experience was amazing! We had a fantastic waiter, Mike, who tended to our every request with attention and some humor. He was fantastic! We cannot wait to come back! Our reservation was accepted quickly for a NYE reservation and we were beyond thrilled. We had pasta, chicken, veal, and seafood with our meals (4 different entrees). The only thing that we would likely not get in the future would be the seafood ravioli as they were slightly fishier than we would have liked. Overall, we will be back and spreading the news about this fantastic restaurant!

    How is it that we live so close by but have never been to Bellini! We had a great experience here and had fresh delicious Italian food. The service was perfect and all the waiters seemed to be in a great mood. I had gnocchi but couldn't decide between gorgonzola and tomato sauce so they brought me a plate with half the gnocchi with each type of sauce. Both were delicious by the way. We loved our cocktails. My husband got beef tartar for his starter which is served with some salad on top. I got a salad with candied pecans. So yummy. Did we have room for dessert? Not really but fit it in anyhow! I had a trio of gelato which was yummy. Definitely try Bellini you won't be disappointed.
