Showed up at Bellanico on my birthday, but unfortunately I had mistakenly booked the reservation for the following day... The restaurant was full apart from the bar, so we sat at the bar. Friendly neighbors on either side, the staff and food were excellent and...More

We really enjoyed the weekly tasting menu at the pan-Italian charmer Bellanico on a busy Saturday night. It was clear from the happy diners at tables near ours that their enjoyment was equal to ours. Both my partner and I went for the $40, four-course...More

Four of us went for dinner and ordered a wide variety of dishes. One of us thoroughly enjoyed her food, another didn't say much, and two of us were a little disappointed. Cauliflower fritters were mashed rather than florets and the texture and mouth feel...More

Malfatti malfatti malfatti. OK there are other good things here but we ALWAYS order the malfatti. One large order split between two is perfect, as they are rather rich. Nice atmosphere, noise level is reasonable (4 people can hold a conversation). Menu is not run-of-the-mill,...More

Following a choral performance nearby, we decided to have an early dinner here on a Sunday evening. We had seen an encore review of Bellanico on "Check, Please Bay Area" restaurant review show on our local PBS station. It is even better than the reviews!...More

If you look at past reviews I have given this restaurant high scores. Tonight our experience was so disappointing that I felt I had to write a new review. It took them an hour to deliver our dinner. We began to think they had forgotten...More

Not easy to find due to its size, but it's close to a corner. My wife had a pastrami s/w and I had a prosciutto with mozzarella s/w. They were BOTH excellent. Great service. And, I must say, very reasonable.

Nice Italian restaurant in Oakland on Park Blvd. Overall our meal was fair. Gnocchi with lamb sugo good, very rich, recommend the small portion, wife's pasta very good. Ferro salad outstanding, but my wife's water cress salad on the stale side. Three people at our...More
