We went last night thinking about the positive reviews on TA about the food and location. To be honest, it is totally overrated!The owner is gentle but the food and service are not at the same level. We took a plate of bruschette that was...just old bread not toasted( like we use to do in Italy) and chopped tomatoes with a lot of pepper. Then, Lasagna that it was clearly warmed inside a microwave (the dish was warm outside, sign that it was in the microwave)and was more like a soup than a lasagna, sign that it was frozen as well before going in the microwave ( it took 5min to reach the table). Then the Salsiccia with tomatoes sauce on top...it look like a patty with a very old tomatoes sauce ( it was acid!). Not mentioned the fact that we just got our dishes and they asked immediately to pay...such bad manner! They offer us a sort of liquor that it tasted bad as well. In conclusion: Bellini's was maybe 10 years ago one of the best Italian restaurants in the Philippines, not it is not even in the top 10. As Italian I will not go back there. Disappointed. Totally.More

I admire Mr. Bellini, he knows how to take care of his business and especially his customers. Staffs are polite and attentive to your needs. I loved the food. I find the chilli oil unique. Grazie Bellini ☺

We had a pizza, pasta, and I had to myself a pork chop. Saddest pork chop I ever had. The pizza crust from the supermarket would give their crust some competition. This place is overrated and overpriced for the servings. Not even the once famous...orange cake was that great.More

Food is still pretty good, but service is still super slow and the facilities need updating. There were a lot of mosquitoes inside the dining area.

The food was just okay. Not very authentic. The ragu di cinghiale was way too salty, the penne all’arrabbiata were good but the sauce was not close to real arrabbiata. No parmesan cheese. The ceasar’s salad was, again, just okay and so were the bruschette....The service was friendly and professional and the restaurant itself is nice.More

Received the best service here at Bellinis. Interior designs are paintings and bar. Air-conditioned and with wifi. Quality food but pricey. Clean so far.

A convenient place to have lunch after a fun and tiring tour around Art In Island, as the resto is just a few steps behind the Museum. It is a homey, intimate resto and we did not disappoint ourselves in choosing this place. Roberto, the...Italian store owner, was very polite and greeted us in, and made sure everything was well with our table and our orders. We ordered the Pasta sampler (Php 1,680) with 5 different flavors as recommended by the waiter, and 2 large Pizzas (Bellini's special and one with bacon/cheese, i forgot the name) for about 650 each. The pizzas were super thin crust and I loved that you get to enjoy the toppings without getting a carbo-overload immediately upon munching on a thick-crust base. I have always loved Italian Food, and Bellini's is a sure hit with the family. We will definitely come back when we happen to get around Cubao once again.More

The Front Office Manager, Sven, at the Novotel Araneta Center Hotel recommended this place to us. It was an 8 minute walk from our hotel, so very convenient. We ended up eating dinner here with a party of 6 and lunch with a party of...3. While the food is outstanding, the real star of the show is the owner, Roberto. He is straight out of Italy, with a heart as big as gold, and personality that is inviting and fun. He works hard and you can tell that he really wants everyone to have the best time. The food was fresh and well prepared, and real italian. Homemade pasta, and fresh beef flown in from Florence, Italy, add to the genuine experience. There is no wine list, but that doesn't mean they don't have great wines... all from Italy. They paraded no less than 7-8 bottles based on my requested profiles. We settled in on a nice Valpolicela Amarone and it was big and nice. Had a wonderful Tiramisu for desert, and Roberto capped our night off with some amazing chilled Limoncello Cream. The lunch was also good. We had pizza, and the cruist is thin and crispy with flavorful, high quality ingredients. Roberto also couldn't help himself, and brought us complimentary flash fried squash blossoms, which were wonderful Go... this place is a must try, and ask for Roberto. He'll be there, he always is. Thank you Roberto, we'll be back.More
