Wonderful and perfect for date night, lamb chops were amazing! We will be back!
I had the special - crab ravioli in lobster sauce... amazing!!!
Had a wonderful time, I hope they can make it through COVID. We went and sat in the outside tables for our Anniversary. Great service, everyone was very good at their COVID protections, and the food was delicious!
This place was fantastic and the food was amazing, can't wait to go back!
Overall, great experience. My wife and I routinely come here to celebrate specific anniversaries because the service, food, and ambience are outstanding.
Noise level is only based on outdoor seating and traffic - not a complaint at all (thanks for having it available!!) Food was delicious and service was excellent :)
Went for date night. Staff was very attentive and quick. Food was delicious. Social distancing was done well and temperature checks were done before being seated. We’ll definitely come back. This was our first visit here.
Very pleasant. Food and service was excellent and all safety protocols were followed
Great veal, great service, great wine. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good Italian spot in the area.
One of our favorite restaurants. Food is always amazing and the service is outstanding!
We were the only diners for most of the experience, and the service was friendly and fine, except that we were seated next to a noisy portable dehumidifier - a strange choice for an empty restaurant. But the real issue was that we found the food sub-par - tough, rubbery chicken with too little of the promised sausage that would have made the dish interesting; a mozzarella/tomato tower that was too cold, lacking in (wilted) basil, and not even made with fresh mozzarella; a small serving of lackluster Costco-like bread, and no cracked pepper for the table. Even the cannoli - my favorite! - was lacking the signature mini chocolate chips that would have made it tasty. The wine list was just OK, yet priced as though it were special. We paid a lot to break our COVID eat-in streak at Bellissimo, then looked at each other saying, "We could have done better at home!"
So excited to support our local restaurant with the reopening of dining rooms after Covid-19 shut downs. Not only was the food, wine and service at its normal impeccable level, the attention to protections for Covid-19 were also thoughtful and mindful, yet not intrusive on the dining experience. Reliable, reasonable, accessible elegance.
Food was great!
This is a neighborhood favorite for us. We love eating here. The food is always excellent, nice wine selection and nice ambience. The pasta is not to be missed. Definitely a great night out for a special occasion or just a Tuesday. We have never been disappointed.
We went to Bellissimo for a birthday event and everybody from the party was talking about how great the service and the food were. The staff was friendly, handled our party's needs without any issues, and even gave the birthday guest a special surprise that will be remembered. My only complaint is that I wish there was more on my plate because finishing my meal felt like finishing a really good tv show... You only want more.
We will be coming back in the future because now we must try the other items on the menu!
Food was excellent for the price but wait staff were rude and inattentive.
Had the lamb shank and all of the pieces were fatty with little meat on them for around $40. They didnt have the wine they recommended. The food was subpar for how expensive it was.
We had a table in a corner next to the window, set apart from the rest of the restaurant. It was perfect to catch up with friends and enjoy a leisurely meal. The service and good were excellent.
We are thrilled that you had such a good time with us! Hope to see you soon.
Wonderful food, great service, excellent menu selection and perfect background music. It's like being transported to Italy without having to pack a suitcase.
Love your review! Thank you!
Our meal was decent but nothing spectacular. We were a group of 6 on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was not even half full. Chicken Marsala was the best of the meals I tried. My husband’s lobster bisque had shrimp in it instead of lobster. One of our friends didn’t get the right dinner but settled for what they brought to not have to wait. Cheesecake may have been the tiniest slice of cheesecake I’ve seen.
For the food and service, I would go back to Dolce Vita over Bellisimo in the future.
Seafood dish was outstanding
Food for 2/3 dinners was good, not great. Fish was suberb; good apps & ambiance. Price was high, but not off-the-charts.
The mashed potatoes had clearly been plated well before my fish was done as they were cold. Literally, the bites of potatoes and broccoli touching the plate were cold. My husband’s veal was tough. For approximately $35/entree We could have eaten so much better elsewhere. Service was friendly and attentive but we will definitely not be back.
It was our anniversary. And the food was amazing... the location was small and cozy but also romantic.
We celebrated 25 years together. We couldn’t have chosen a greater place. We will definitely be returning in the future.
Valentines Day dinner
The food was very good. My husband and I both had the lamb shank over pappardelle. Two glasses of house wine that were average. The wine glasses were not the cleanest. That is a peave of mine. The service was adequate. Not friendly at all. We did not feel welcomed in the least. I expect superior service that is personable in such a quaint restaurant.
We throughly enjoyed our meal and will be returning. Although cetainly not inexpensive, the prices were reasonable, especially for the quality of the food.
Great restaurant in Old Town FFX. Friendly staff, good food selection.
Been here a couple times now and it always impresses, great food, great staff!
Wonderful meal served piping hot. Attentive service. Always enjoy the food and ambience.
It was a perfect setting for my husband and I to have a quiet dinner, and enjoy delicious food.
Little overpriced special I wasn’t wild about the way they did the duck
Parking is a nightmare
Thank you for your comment. There are 4 public parking places just a few steps from the restaurant! Please give us a call before you come again and we can tell you where the lots are. So sorry!
Excellent food. The staff is awesome. Will definitely go back.
Our waiter was most charming. Food was excellent
I had heard such good things about Bellissimo's from a friend and sadly our experience just did not meld with that. We were there during Restaurant Week, but on the night that we were there there were only 3 other occupied tables the entire time we were in the restaurant. It took around 25 minutes for our dinner order to be placed; and 15 minutes after that was when our appetizers arrived. I'm not sure how long it took for dinner to be brought out... all I know is that my husband was continually shooting hungry looks my way, so perhaps a while! Food was fine to me (the stacked tomato and fresh mozzarella appetizer was the highlight)... but we will not be back I'm afraid. All in all, I'd say to skip it.
Annual Restaurant Week dinner was outstanding in every way.
Great Italian restaurant. My wife and I ate here on Wednesday and then came back to eat again on Saturday. All was delicious.
Good location, tight entrance, parking on the street is not always readily available, good service, nice starters and main courses but desserts were lacking. Would consider going again.
Great food! Great staff! Highly recommend! We had a great evening here.
