Wind was high and we were cold, but happy to have found it hurried in. Apparently five o'clock is too early, so we were advised that we would have to sit in the bar. TV was on with sports and only high chairs. As we...More

Outside patio. I ordered off the 'afternoon menu'; plenty to eat and delicious. They also have glen-free pasta (didn't try it).

We were visiting here in our motorhome and were tired of cooking, so walked into town looking for dinner. Italian sounded good, so we went into Bellisio's on a Thursday evening. We were seated within a few minutes and promptly given menus, water, bread, and...More

The service is superb. The location is easy walking from the canal park hotels. Make a reservation since this is very popular.

Our server was top notch, especially when she had to deal with a difficult customer at the table next to us. He complained about everything and she was so patient! The bread that comes before the meal is so good! Everyone was very pleased with...More

Nothing better than a great day in Canal Park and some great appetizers & a glass of wine.....except if you're on the outdoor patio at Bellisios. It was our choice to sit outside, but the patio is located at an intersection (lights) so all we...More

We were there right when they opened on a sunday. We had the artisan cheese plate and the olives for appetizers (should have ordered only one because I didn't have room for my food when it came!) The cheese plate was delicious and balanced. I...More

Great question! I would have to say that our traveling guests hear about the great walleye in Minnesota and because we live on Lake Superior we feel it's important to offer a walleye dish. Our Walleye Milanese has an... More

We also were in very casual clothes. If you wanted to make it a dressy, special occasion, you'd be fine. if you'd been exploring Canal Park all day, you could show up in casual clothes as well. Hope this helps!

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.
