Dropped in with my wife as they opened (as I knew they'd be busy) and we were welcomed very warmly, informally and naturally - first impressions count and they were great from the get-go: the place was nicely decor'd, the staff were friendly, smartly presented, glamourous even and very professional! The menu was great with lots of trad dishes and interesting tweaks, the first glass of wine was wonderful and I knew we were in for a great time. It was the last night of a short holiday in Lymington and we were celebrating our holiday together, finding lovely Lymington and the weeks' memories! The venue was perfect for this. In summary, our shared starter was ideal (Antipasto misti), my wife's risotto was creamy and delish, my main (linguine with clams) was amazing (12 clams = generous!), our shared dessert (amaretto of course) was perfect in rounding off the night, followed by a brandy for me. The bill was reasonable, the tip included and off we went, freeing up a window table for someone else I hope. Ciao Belli is like 'the ideal Italian' that I carry in my head and have yet to find. Youre lucky to have it there. Recommended UNRESERVEDLY!!
