On entering the restaurant we we warmly welcomed and seated in a quiet area. Orders were taken swiftly and dinner was prompt. Unfortunately the quality was not quite the standard we had been expecting. Although good to average it could have been better. Perhaps the quick service let the quality if the food down. Maybe it'll be better next time!

Chose Bellucci for an early evening New Year's catch up with a few "gal pals" as its location in Ballsbridge was convenient to work locations. No delays in being seated and a warm welcome to boot! Drinks were selected and girlie catch-up commenced with glass in hand. And here's the thing ... although the restaurant was far from full, we were approached several times (by more than one member of staff) enquiring about our food selections. I don't have an issue with being told that a table is needed back at a certain time (not the case here), nor do I wish to be critical of attentive service, but when you are clearly in mid-conversation and are interrupted every 2 minutes, it gets a little bit irritating. The staff were friendly and helpful ... just a little bit over-attentive perhaps. We chose an anti-pasti platter to share ... delicious and made our own selections for mains. Fish main was declared to be flavoursome and perfectly cooked. Penne Arrabiata was also polished off and given the thumbs up. Risotto was very good, rather than perfectly executed, but again, none of it remained on the plate! Wine list was well chosen and reasonably priced. Decor is modern and quite elegant - we didn't explore the cocktail bar but it's a reason to return! Bellucci is probably off the beaten track for those wishing to stay and eat in City Centre but it's not too far from the centre of town and worth a trip. Enjoy!

Feeling a bit "tired" on New year's evening we needed some comfort food. Delighted we chose Bellucci's. It was not busy but still had a warm, cosy atmosphere. The waiting staff were very attentive. We asked for a half portion of pasta carbonara for our son and it was no problem. We had lovely food and wine and left in a very good mood. A great start to the new year.

Happened upon Bellucci after the rugby match. Everywhere booked out but not here and I can't for the life of me understand why because it was a real find, maybe we had missed the rush. Anyway staff very welcoming. Lovely restaurant and well appointed cocktail bar all in all beautiful surroundings. We shared the platter for starters and it was one of the nicest, well presented ones that we have had- plenty on it. Husband had rib eye steak for mains and I had the lamb shank which was absolutely gorgeous. All washed down with a nice valpolicella. Both really stuffed so chose to have liquer coffees instead of a sweet. Really glad we found this restaurant and if I'm ever back in Dublin 4 I will certainly be paying it a visit. Thank you.

We had a lovely meal here on sunday evening Nov 24th. We stayed in bewelys hotel which is just 5 mins away. We had attended a sporting event in the nearby aviva stadium.
My wife and i both had starters which consisted of bruschetta and crostini funghi, which were tasty and beautifuly presented. We both had the carbonara for main course, this too was fabulous. We shared a dessert of profiterolls which were just as nice. We also enjoyd a lovely bottle of house wine (white). The staff were lovely and helpful. The restaurant was beautiful, clean and relaxing.
