Bellini is the place, i always ordered for delivery and go there at least once a week. Something changed in this place. Small portions and service is going down. waitresses are not speaking and understanding English. Owner needs to do something. i care about this place thats why i am writting this comment. thanks

What is with the tiny portions of food?! I dined here Saturday 8/21/2010 and was very disappointed with the size of my chicken parmigiana. The chicken was sliced so thin before cooking, it's barely noticable in the breading. I was not fooled with 2 pieces of chicken either because these were so thin. And barely a serving of pasta underneath the chicken. Really, pasta is the cheapest thing you can serve, and you can't even serve a nice size serving of it?? During my 45 minute 5pm visit, no one came in during that time. THAT alone should explain it...this place is not worth it and it shows with no customers while the restaurants next door were booming. This was my second time dining here, the first was a better experience, however they charged me for each refill of iced tea! THAT is not right, especially when the glass is mostly ice. Charging for refills of iced tea and soft drinks is just bad business. Serving children sized portions is even worse business. If Bellini wants to be successful, they'll have to make some changes... On a good note, the waitress was kind, and I enjoyed the music playing. Cute looking place, but need to serve decent portions.

I stumbled upon this small restaurant a few weeks ago, and have eaten there and ordered in several times since then. The food is so tasty and the prices are so reasonable!! The eggplant parmesan is thin and savory, not the thick sloppy stuff you find in other places. The pastas are all cooked so well, and the vodka sauce is thick and sooooo delicious! The pizza is thin crust and terrific in the restaurant, but it doesn't travel so well, so maybe don't order the pizza in? Other than that, I really, really recommend this place.

unfortunately, we stumbled into Bellini tonight and ordered a sub-par salad, unimpressive chicken parm, and a pretty gross linguine primavera. we were not thrilled with the food, but figured, we just suck it up and eat it. the kicker, though, was when our waitress brought over a glass of ginger ale with a LIPSTICK stain on the rim. needless to say, we won't be returning. if you like Italian food on the UWS, stick with Celeste.

I just ordered their penne ala vodka entree delivered and was stunned to find it has shrunk to half its previous size---an appetizer portion at best. Don't understand it; if the restaurant is in trouble this is a poor way to economize. They save, what, a few pennies on pasta and sauce and lose a repeat customer for good.

I was very lucky to find this wonderful little restaurant on my last trip to New York. They made me feel completely comfortable. I had a fantastic meal, great service, and a pleasant atmosphere to sit and enjoy. Will definitely come back.

Have been here several times and service is consistently mediocre. The waitresses have a tendency to hang out at the bar so that when you need something, you are constantly having to get their attention. They do come immediately but it is annoying that they are never on the floor but in the back of the restaurant hanging out instead. At the end of the meal, I asked for a doggy bag because I only finished 1/2 of my dinner. We were brought the check, paid for the check, left the restaurant and the next morning I realized that my L/O food was never brought to the table. This place will not be on the top of my list next time I go out to dinner.
