“A quality Mediterranean restaurant”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Thank goodness we have a good 'Italian' now in Melton, such a massive leap in quality over the previous bland Mamma Mia's version. Taken over by the Italian family that own Cafe Italia in Melton, a really good cafe and treasure trove Deli. Sensible portions and a good choice of Mediterranean dishes, the three of us had 3 courses and wine and the total bill was reasonable.

This is not the cheapest option in town, go to Pizza Express for the Italian version of McDonalds for that, this is quality food at affordable prices in comfortable surroundings. We went for the first time taking Mother in Law for a birthday dinner. We would also see this as a good venue for ourselves for a nice evening out.

We had a very good evening and will definitely be going there again.

“Superb !”
Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

Wednesday we celebrated my wife's Birthday with a superb meal at Bellini. This was our second visit and once again we were not disappointed. Nice portions and great food. What a great touch by our host to bring my wife a Bellini's birthday cocktail! My muscle starter and fillet steak main were perfect. I'm certainly going to recommend Bellini's to my friends.

“Bland tasteless pity as could be so much better”
Reviewed 3 March 2014 via mobile

Had a disappointing meal on fri evening one pasta dish with mussels and scallops but unfortunately no flavour partner had risotto much the same and made with long grain rice don't know how a Italian chef can even think about calling that a risotto will not be returning shame really because the staff are lovely

“New Italian”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

We was very excited about a new restaurant being in melton but was disappointed. The service was ok to start when we first arrived, when we were seated we was near a door I don't know if it was a cloak room but the draft from there was very cold, we ordered our food we didn't think that the menu was very varied so not a lot to choose from....
We found it hard to get somebody to order our drinks. Over all in our experience everything about this place was average which is a shame because it's put us of going here again:(

Hi Deborah, Thank you for your feedback. I apologise for the draft coming from the cloak room, it is a problem we are trying to sort out. We have tried to insulate the room as much as possible, and we hope as the weather gets a bit warmer it won't be a problem any more, but are doing all we can to rectify it. I am sorry if there was nothing on the menu you fancied, however, the menu changes fairly regularly so hopefully you will find something you like next time.
Thank you again,
Alison

“Great dinner”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

First time to Bellini and I was very impressed for the moment I walked in, very welcoming. The staff were very friendly and quick in response. The food tasted absolutely amazing and you diddn't have to wait long for it either. Very nice place to have a nice meal. I would definitely eat their again.
