"Great Italian food in an informal atmosphere"

10/10

Sunderland Echo

Bellini is an authentic Italian restaurant founded on the belief that flavour comes from the origin of ingredients.

We import the finest ‘materia prima’ produced in Italy that cannot be reproduced in any other part of the world while work with local producers to obtain the best ingredients that create our delectable dishes.

Meet the Head Chef

Olivier Trapletti has more than 20 years of experience as a chef. His devotion to the culinary arts started when cooking with his nana as a child in Italy, where, traditionally, all members of the family were involved in the kitchen. Intrigued and fascinated by the countless possibilities that the combination of different ingredients provided, he decided to make a career out of it.

Even though his speciality is Italian cuisine, he has developed his culinary skills all over the world. These international influences, when combined with traditional Italian cuisine, result in exceptional flavourful dishes. His food is a reflection of his background and personality, a place where tradition and modernity blend.

The secret: creativity and passion.

“When I hit the three notes: the look, the smell and the ‘gusto’ (taste); it´s mission accomplished”.
