We tried Bellini's last weekend and had a wonderful experience. The setting is very unique. The restaurant is located in what was originally a church. Stained glass windows, vaulted archways, soaring ceilings, heavy wooden chairs and tables all trace back to it origins. We were greeted at the hostess stand and ushered to a booth. It was a little tight... More

This is a very popular place, and sadly it's going to close in mid-November. The food was excellent and mid-range in price. Interesting setting, being an old church (a relative of mine actually got married there when it was still a church). Service was friendly, but food took an inordinate amount of time, given all the dishes were pasta dishes.... More

I visited Bellini with my wife in August for our Anniversary. We enjoyed Bellini during one of our first dates back in 2007, and had to return when we learned they may be closing in the near future. I hope they can find a way to stay open, or to sell and keep this wonderful restaurant open! I enjoyed the... More

Found this while driving from Dodgeville to Milwaukee and decided to give it a try. Got there early. Food and service were both fantastic. Friendly wait staff. Generous portions on our meals. Will visit again on next trip through the area,

I had the opportunity to dine at this establishment with nine of my friends for dinner prior to a show at the Overture theatre. The setting was interesting. I had hoped to learn more of the history of the Church. None was available. Overall, our experience was average. Food and beverages were hit and miss. Our server was challenged in... More

I've eaten here several times and have always loved it. The garlic cheesebread appetizer is amazing. On this visit, we were seated along the back wall, under the stained glass windows. As I sat down, I noticed 2 mousetraps on the floor, one was about 6 inches from my feet. (The traps were the white box kind that catch several... More

The ambience of the place is spot on. There ends the hype regarding the place. The servers were very friendly. The food is very good. But it is nothing special. I have had better Italian food at other places. The pizza and the pasta was nothing special. The chicken parmigiana was sort of ok. But considering the hype the food... More

We were there for valentines day... and it was bad service, we waited for ever on everything. The food I got was waaay too salty, the server was really bad... for the amount of money we spent, It was just not good. I mean the building was beautiful but that's about it... I recommend Tuttos pasta or Lombardinos
