Late post.. two weeks ago..
My husband chose Bellini's for our late lunch venue. We were with our kids and his mom. It was his mom's first time to visit.
We ordered the in house lasagna (4th pic left side) for the day which we didn't like.
I forgot to take pictures of our food before we dig in128522128512
They still have the free bread sticks and the after meal wine for dessert🤔
Good food = pricey

Not just a fan of Truffle pasta but the Italian cuisine itself — Pizza, Pasta and even the Italian bread!

Bellini’s is still one of the Authentic and best Italian restaurants in the metro and I love everything in this picture:

-Quattro Formaggi pizza
-Tartufo Funghi con Prosciutto pasta
-Italian bread

Indeed they were great food and recommending the place for a nice ambiance and spending some precious moments, too!

Went on a date with my guy's fam here a few weeks ago. I had high expectations given the reviews here and the things I've heard, but my experience was slightly underwhelming. I would definitely still come back to try out the other recommended dishes since I've heard so many good things about this restaurant.

Anyway, here's what I had:

127800 Carpaccio di Manzo - This one was pretty nice. I liked how simple it was since it allowed the natural flavors of the meat and cheese to shine.

127800 Insalata Caprese - The cheese had a very mild and milky flavor that went well with the tomatoes and the basil.

127800 Gnocchi Speck Arugula - I really enjoyed this one!! The sauce was buttery and creamy, with nice little bites of arugula. The texture of the gnocchi was perfect too. Being a gnocchi lover, I will definitely come back for this one (and their other gnocchi dish too)!

127800 Parma Ham Arugula Pizza - Probably the biggest letdown for me. From the photo you can see how underwhelming it is given the small, wilted pieces of torn-up arugula. In the menu the arugula were whole and looked bright and fresh. The crust was also nothing special and had a texture a bit closer to bread than the crisp crust you'd expect. I hope my next pizza experience here will be better!

The owner and the servers were nice, though. Plus, they could speak Italian, which was pretty cool! I'd still come back someday to try more dishes (and for the gnocchi).

16 years and it’s still here. The reason, Italy sent here. Each dish is an experience. The waiters even practice Italian with us. me. Bellini is his friendly self hanged out with us. Top notch pizza, pasta and dessert. A must every time am in Cubao.

Popoy and Basha! This is the first thing that came to my mind when we went to this gem right in the middle of Cubao expo. Who could forget Popoy's heartbreaking lines??
Anyways, went here for lunch and thankfully there were a couple of available tables. I loved the homey and colorful feel of the place. Frescos were on the walls and ceiling as well depicting places around Italy and surprisingly, Cubao too 128522
Servers were super knowledgeable and polite, everything was done with a smile. We ordered foccacia bread for appetizers but just a few minutes later, out pizza and pasta arrived. Food was good but I prefer the pizza at trattoria and pasta at Nonna's.
To cap off your meal, they'll serve you shots of sweet wine that perfectly ends your experience at bellinis 128522

Had the spinach gnocci and it was light, fluffy, and flavourful! One of the good potato dumplings in Manila. 127881

Authentic italian food right in the heart of cubao; Bellini's is definitely the OG. The food is definitely the reason why his place has been around for so long. The use quality ingredients and the right techniques to produce great Italian food. Service is a little slow, but i think its because they take their time in preparing the food. Definitely a place to visit.

A little disappointed on the Chicken, it was overcooked, but everything was still good.

Good Italian food. I can't have enough of the antipasto. (It's all gone by the time I decided to make a review!) We had the pizza and pasta samplers. The family could not agree on which one was the best. The risotto was creamy but still firm.
The gelato was really good.

A sad note was the roast chicken was a bit over cooked and dry.

Overall, I'd be happy to return tomorrow. 128077

Remember Popoy and Basha from the movie "One Last Chance"? Dito ang eksena ng confrontation nila after not seeing each other for a long time since they broke up! Un lng ang unang rason bakit ako pumayag na dito kmi kumain. Haha! :)

The food was great, the ambiance was so romantic and the servers are very accomodating. 128536

Wanna know a secret? Dito rin unang nagsabi ng 'iloveyou' ang bf ko, na manliligaw pa lng nung time na kumain kami dito. Naki-ambiance si koya! Haha! 128521

Btw, if you happen to be in the area on a Sunday - Tuesday and want to have a nice meal and listen to good music, don't hesitate to dine here. Say hello to Kuya Danny, the scheduled singer on these days, from our PWD GK Village in Escopa, Q.C.

Before anything else, am so sorry if my photos look weird. I was so excited to put it up on my Instagram Stories that I forgot to take actual photos. Ha ha ha! Woops! I guess I get plus points here for trying to be creative (?) 128527

Anyway so one of my childhood girlfriends celebrated her birthday not too long ago, so we decided to go to our favorite place to carry on with the festivity.

We got a cozy spot (thanks to Signore Roberto) with a great view of the restaurant. My friend and I, both avid fans of Bellini's, ordered pasta and pizza. I forgot the name of the pasta but it was fresh tomato sauce with ground beef over spaghetti. It was just perfect. Not too sweet and not too salty. Altho a hint of fresh herbs like Basil would've been nice. Hi hi hi!

The Ma Luisa pizza was amazingly delicious! The vegetables (carrots, eggplants and zucchinis) didn't overpower the meat (bacon and ground beef). It was just addicting!

I was in awe of their service. We took our time to study the menu and when the cameriere (waiter) approached us, we were constantly changing our minds. But he was so patient and he even asked us about what we like and don't like. He patiently waited for those two girls to finally give their final orders, all with a smile on his face. Ha ha ha! Ang tindi! Sorry for that mister, we literally wanted everything pero hindi pwede. 128584

Bellini's has been here for years and I must say, it feels home to most of the Cubaoñas like us. 128151

I've been to Bellini's a couple of times and they never disappoint. Pastas are excellent! Very authentic! I can imagine the work put into one dish. Once you sit down, service is very good. They'd immediately put water on your glass, provide you with their famous breadsticks and ask if you would like to start with some appetizers. The waiters are also very knowledgeable about the dishes on the menu, what's in it or if it's unavailable, without having to go back to the kitchen and ask. Now that's good service. Since I was craving for a truffle pasta, i got the Tartufo Funghi Con Prosciutto. It's a truffle cream pasta with mushrooms and prosciutto slices. The pasta was cooked perfectly and very al dente. I love that they weren't shy with the truffle oil. The Prosciutto gave the cream pasta the right balance of saltiness. Another thing I love about Bellini's is that they are the only italian restaurant here in manila (that I know of) that has Gnocchi on the menu. I love those little potato pastas and can't get enough of them. It's nice that they give out dessert wine after your meal. Makes us customers feel appreciated. Only problems would probably be the parking and sometimes credit cards don't work so make sure you have cash. It's quite hard to get a parking space in Cubao X most especially at night but will definitely go back again and again 128522

Sino naman ang hindi makakalimot sa intense scene kung nasaan si Basha kasama si Derek (can't remember his name) and Popoy making paliwanag about the famous three month rule in relationships?

Yes! Bellini's is the place. :) Romantic place to have a dinner. Superb Italian dishes from pastas - as in lahat ng pasta nila worth a try. Pizzas... Plus free wine hmmm. Perfecto!

Nice ambiance, great food and definitely worth your penny. (Yes, medyo pricey dito)

So guys, if you want your gfs or soon to be gfs to say yes, bring them here for sure sa sobrang romantic ng place mapapa-yes sila. :)

No picture of the foods because we just want to enjoy the moment in the resto. And feel that we are the barkada on that movie.

PS. We saw the long table of the barkada of One More chance with their names in the chairs and carefully examine the place, and poof connect the dots! It is the place in one more chance, of course even in second chance.

The ambience is nice their food sooooo yummy...
Service good! You just need to wait for your order too be served.. Meals have fresh produce.. Also they give complimentary wine...which home made by the owner... The nice thing is the owner us hands on.. You can even take pictures with the owner... Also their chairs has names at the back ( names of celebrities that dined) overall love their pasta and pizzas. Definitely a must try.. Value of food start around 200 and up! They have branches in marikina and pasay but i never tried it on those branches. Best time to dine would be night time to savor the lights of the night...

Ako at ang aking sister from another mother ay nag ultimate bonding experience sa Bellini's last week. Though, medyo lipas na gagawa pa rin ako ng review. :) feel na feel ko ang Italian vibes sa place na 'to. Lalong lalo na ang feels ng One More Chance. Oh my, Popoy! :') Inorder ang hindi masyadong mahirap ipronounce na Carbonara. And, OMG! Best carbonara in my entire existence! Walang umay factor. Perfect ang pagkakaluto ng noodles. Kahit pang dalawang tao ang servings, naubos ko (hindi sa matakaw talaga ako). While yung friend ko, isang dish na wala sa menu ang inorder at isang dish na di namin mapronounce kahit ilang beses na naming pinaulit ulit sa waiter. :'( Like din namin yung complimentary sweet wine nila. Sobrang accommodating pa ng mga waiters na kahit saang anggulo kami magpapicture, g na g sya. :)

Bread Sticks: Yummy appetizers! :) - It's their complimentary bread. 11088110881108811088

Salad: Mukhang malungkot na salad :( Hehe. I don't know. The plate looked so big, but the salad was little. Parang kinalat lang yung lettuce para mag mukhang puno. Hehe. 110881108811088

Quattro Formaggi: It's good! Perfect with their chili oil. 11088110881108811088

Aglio Olio: Not on their menu, but you can request to order it. It's basically pasta on olive oil and garlic. You may also add shrimp or any other meat such as bacon to go with it. 11088110881108811088

Eggplant Parmigiana: The dish I came to Bellini's for. haha! This is my favorite! Must try! If you're not fond of eating eggplant, this dish will give you a change of heart. 128540 If you're planning to try this, order it before looking at the menu. It can take about 30 mins for them to prepare since they still have to bake it.1108811088110881108811088

The place is full of art. From walls to ceilings, you will be able to feel the Italian ambiance. It's like restaurant and mini art museum in one! 128522 My only complaint during our dinner was their TV was too loud. I can even hear it from the other room. Lol

Another cool thing about this place is that they will give you a complimentary shot of sweet red wine after your meal! It's really good! And if you're lucky, they might have extra bottles in stock for you to order.

If you plan to dine here for dinner, consider making reservations as the place can get packed especially on special occasions.

Date night with my friend, Katie. We met at Gateway Mall to watch Mockingjay and while waiting for the screening, we decided to have our dinner first since we have an hour to spare. I recommended Bellini since it's just a walking distance from the mall and I've been wanting to try it as well. My friend being a fan of the Movie, One More Chance, was kinda excited.

The resto is located at the Cubao Expo near Art Island. The outside of the resto wasn't what I'm expecting to see, it's plain and a bit run down. The inside was different. You can feel the italian vibe, nice ambiance, artsy and rustic. At the back of the chairs were the name of filipino artists who visited the place. I didn't like the lighting, a bit dark to take a good pictures using my phone. 128514

The names of the on the menu were unfamiliar to me, so we've asked the waiter their bestsellers and ended up ordering the ff:

Seafood Marinara. I friend chose this and it was ok for me. I'm not really a fan of the dish but my friend did liked it.

Pizza. I forgot the name but it was great. Thin crusted pizza with lotsa cheese and other stuff. The olive oil with chili wasn't spicy enough for me. 128530

Obama Cake. It's like a two small mamon-size pound cake topped with a cream and pi nuts. This one was good to but the cake was too heavy for us. Better to eat alone with a cup of coffee maybe.

Service was good but took them too looooooooooong with our bill.

Definitely would go back and try other dishes. 128513
