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! Attracting diners from all over Sunderland to its location on Dovedale Road in Seaburn, Bellini is one of the city’s most loved Italian restaurants. To guarantee a table, making a reservation in advance is wise.
Love the ceiling! When me and my partner arrived, it was packed. We were served promptly with a courteous smile. Loved the fact, that when it came to food, I could itemised what I wanted, and they were happy to do so. The only thing with the place, is that it's small, so tables can be close to other people. People talking, it was loud, and I struggled to hear my partner talk. But overall, it's a lovely place, and not too expensive. We both got starters, main meal with garlic pizza and drinks, came to about £35 odd quid. I Would go again.
First class in every way. Fast, helpful , and efficient,staff were just great,this was our fifty third anniversary so a bit of a treat for us ,first time here,it will not be the last many thanks .Rob.
First time I've been to this resturant we went for my sons 21st birthday. Lovely food and staff really friendly will definitely be go going back.
Always excellent never had a bad meal there. Recommend Bellinis,staff always very polite and attentive.Food presented well and tasted great.Parking is ok put can be a slight issue.
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.
We dined at Bellinis at 5 pm on a Sunday afternoon, the restaurant was very busy and had a great buzz. Despite it being busy, the service was very good. Happy hour runs from 4 pm on a Sunday until closing. Drinks orders were taken within 5 minutes of arriving and food about 15 minutes, starters were served about 10 minutes later. I had Thai fish cakes that were excellent. Main courses arrived again about 10 minutes after starter plates were taken away, my Calzone was delicious as usual. Cannot fault the restaurant, excellent service and food.
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.
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+++++++
Table ready on arrival. Excellent service as usual with polite and friendly waiters. Excellent choice from al la carte menu to the Sunday roast. Food as ever was excellent with a great selection of desserts. This is our local restaurant and we visit frequently. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
We have dined at this restaurant many times. Our party of 4 ordered two Sunday roast meals and two Italian. All were served together and we were 100% satisfied with our chosen meals which were well presented and expertly cooked. The staff are friendly and efficient. Definitely recommend.
Very good food and lovely staff ! This was our 2nd visit and it was a beautiful meal, the Pil Pil prawns my husband and I had for our starters were gorgeous, the kids thoroughly enjoyed there meals too and left very happy, lollys in hand !
Staff always welcoming,pleasant and professional. Food best in sunderland,weve been to numerous restaurents, wven outside of Sunderland and it takes alot to beet the high standard and quality of food. Staff are consitent and you get to know them which makes the eating out even better
