Further Information

Headed by a native Italian chef, Olivier Trapletti, who has over twenty years experience in the industry, you know the cuisine served up at Bellini is going to be nothing short of authentic and delicious. Begin by taking your pick from the selection of antipasti, perfect for sharing around the table, like the pil pil (prawns) or the bruschetta di pollo. Then, move on to a classic Italian pasta like the creamy spaghetti alla carbonara the home-style lasagne or the veggie-friendly penne della casa, or one of Bellini’s rustic pizzas with a variety of fresh toppings, from the simple yet delicious margherita, to the marinara, perfect for seafood lovers.

With an array of salads, steak, poultry and fish dishes also on the menu, there’s something to suit all tastes at Bellini. Just be sure to leave room for afters though, because with a lengthy list of homemade dessert options ranging from traditional tiramisu to Sicilian lemon cake, you certainly won’t want to miss out!

As always my wife and I enjoy our meals it Bellini Seaburn. Tonight we took two of our friends and they commented that it was one of the best Italian restaurants that they have been to. The staff was pleasant and attended to us with care and attention. As usual I might say.

Food was excellent, as it always is. Arrived at 19:15 and shown straight to our table. Restaurant was busy, but we were offered drinks within a couple of minutes of being seated. Out order was taken pretty swiftly and arrived pretty quickly too. We decided not to have a sweet, as the size of the meal was substantial, and asked for the bill. However, we waited for at least 10 minutes and still no sign of God bill. We eventually decided to head over to the till, only to find that they had lost our bill! Only a small hiccup, which did not spoil the experience. We look forward to our return.

Always a good atmosphere at Bellini and the food is of high quality and very tasty. There is no issue if you wish to arrive early and have a drink in the bar at the side of the restaurant whilst you wait for your table. The waiting staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them. If you are celebrating a special occasion, such as a birthday, the staff will sing 'Happy Birthday' at your table but make sure you ask them to do this as they will not do so unless asked in order to save embarrassment.

Great food, good atmosphere and excellent service. There is an excellent choice on the menu and the food is freshly cooked and well presented. The wine list is extensive and has some great wines. At the time we went (5pm), there were a lot of families with young children but, I am sure, if booking later, the atmosphere for a romantic meal for two would be just as good. Would recommend Bellinis without a second thought.

In my opinion the best Italian restaurant in Sunderland. Been multiple times and the food is always amazing especially for the price, even more so during happy hour. It can get a little bit loud when busy but that's to be expected. The staff are all super friendly and provide the best service with food being served quickly. I've never had a bad experience here and I just couldn't recommend this restaurant enough.

Amazing food as always couldn't fault it in anyway they even accommodated 2 eaters who wanted have calzone half pasta by making lovely mini portions of each which we were over the moon with. Service was fantastic too, only small issue was that the table was for 5 people and it just felt like we had been squished onto a table for 4, however it was extremely busy and it didn't spoil our experience at all and will definitely be returning

Visited to celebrate a promotion at work and we were not disappointed. The food was beautifully cooked with lovely flavours. My husband ordered a main from the specials menu: fillet Rossini with pate and port sauce. I had a try of it and it was beautiful! I had king prawns provinciale and they were lovely. Staff were very attentive and friendly. One of our favourite restaurants!

Bellini's is a restaurant we visit regularly. We really like the atmosphere. The staff are excellent and food very good value. Last night we shared a starter from the Specials menu and I had Duck, again from the Specials menu - both were excellent - my husband had Chicken Cacciatore which is one of his favourites. All food was delicious and service excellent as usual.

It's an excellent restaurant. If you get there half an hour earlier you can relax with a drink first, they then come and show you to your table, give you your menu. Then just chat, not long for your food then just enjoy the great taste of what you ordered. The friendly staff and service are First Class

We went to the restaurant for a quiet wedding anniversary meal. It was very noisy and we could hardly hear ourselves speak. The meal itself was nice apart from the starters which were below par compared with previous occasions.We had steaks which were good although the veg was lacklustre and the chips were soggy. We shared a Tiramisu which was home made and tasty. The prices were around what we would have expected. A bit disappointing overall.

Friendly and efficient service. Easy to book online. Had special menu £8.95. Chose potato skins with garlic dip and calzone Pizzi, extra £1 for some bolognaise sauce. Didn't enjoy garlic dip today, had a thinner more rancid taste.
