We stopped in on a quiet Sunday and had a great experience. Fantastic wine list- the largest by the glass list, I believe, I've ever seen. The prices were approx. 2/3 of what I would typically see in major metro areas. Great food and service, too.

Visiting The Bentleyville Light Show brought us back to Duluth. Decided to visit one of our favorite places. Downside was we got seated in the corner in alcove. Even though other larger tables were available. Don't let that happen to you. Other than that everything was as good as usual. Wine choices are endless. Food was excellent. Service was excellent....

My wife and I went there on a date and enjoyed a bottle of red wine and spicy pasta dish. Sorry, don't remember the name. We like sitting in the bar area because it seems more intimate. Service was excellent to from our waitress. Can't wait to go there again on our next trip to Duluth!

The wine menu at Bellisio's was huge. Many choices for meal options. Everything from high end to affordable. The wait was long to get in, so make a reservation or go early.

On a recent trip to Duluth we had dinner Bellisio's. Our dinners were excellent. Fresh pasta, a huge wine menu and a reasonable price. The staff was very friendly and helpful when asked about a particular wine. The manager stopped by and we had a pleasant conversation with her. We'll be back on our next trip to Duluth.

This is my absolute favorite Italian restaurant! Every time we go to Duluth, we have to eat here. Great service and the food is fabulous.

We made the mistake of reserving a table for an anniversary dinner based on filtering Duluth restaurants for "fine dining". Three restaurants appeared, Bellisio's was top rated. Big mistake. Bellisio's is not fine dining. Tripadvisor should remove that tag from the Bellisio record so that this doesn't happen to other people. First, the place is completely informal. When the waitress...

Description
Classic Italian dinning and Wine Spectator award winner since 1999
Bellisio’s restaurant conjures up images of highly skilled chefs, fine wines, superb service, and fresh Italian food. And while all this is most certainly true, one must not forget that Bellisio’s is above all an experience. An exceptional dining experience, to be precise, but one that takes place in a casual atmosphere reminiscent of the quaint eateries and wine bars of the Italian countryside. And no wonder. The experience is fashioned after the small village of Bellisio, Italy, home to the owner’s ancestry. Imported direct from Italy are the beauty, comfort, romance, and glorious recipes. Specialty dishes include perfectly prepared pasta dishes using the finest imported and local ingredients; fennel roasted rack of pork; homemade risotto dishes; grilled steaks; shrimp; seafood; and a fresh catch feature every day. All served with a world class wine menu to match. Bellisio’s has received Wine Spectator’s prestigious “Best of Award of Excellence” every year since we opened in 1999. It’s a simple, colorful, elegant, and exceptional dining experience.
