The spaghetti western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: modern Italian cuisine at Bellini’s. Located in the heart of downtown Lexington, Bellini’s couples attentive, knowledgeable service with locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, putting the “B” back in Italian. Choose one of two options and stop in at the appropriate hour to dine on modern cuisine or classic favorites on the menu:
- $10 for $20 worth of lunch
- $20 for $40 worth of dinner
Six CitySearchers give Bellini’s a four-star average, and 77% of more than 200 Urbanspooners like it: > * The cocktails were made with fresh squeezed juice and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was sophisticated and cozy. – mindi920, CitySearch > * Love the food, love the atmosphere. Prices no higher than other similar restaurants downtown. Will keep going back. – VWGirl, UrbanSpoon
Even among Lexington's other historic buildings, Bellini's Italianette-style architecture stands out; perhaps because the building has been a city fixture for close to 150 years. This was a large draw for long-time friends Giancarlo Marletta and Nader Iweimrin when they started the restaurant some 10 years ago. But Bellini's has been a shared success. Chef Craig Devilliers deftly helms the kitchen and insures quality with a strict sustainability pledge: organic and locally sourced seasonal ingredients whenever possible. The result is a dynamic menu pairing rack of lamb and diver scallops with modern accents of basil relish, blackberry compote, and sweet candied fennel.
