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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

This is one of the best restaurants in south Tyneside and Sunderland. Food is freshly prepared to order and the staff are absolutely amazing. The food and drinks are great value and we have never been disappointed with the service or food. Much, much better than any restaurant chain. A+++++++

Fantastic attentive service and good hearty food. Suitable for family dining although does tend to be busy at happy hour so if you'd like a romantic meal I'd go a little later. Plenty of parking.
