Italian
Located at the base of the historic cultural arts center in City Place, IL Bellagio captures the experience of dining in an authentic Italian "piazza." Directly facing the spectacular courtyard fountains, the restaurant serves authentic Italian cuisine in a casual, vibrant atmosphere. IL Bellagio’s menu features a variety of excellent homemade pasta selections including Pennette's Harry's Bar (pennette with garlic, olive oil, spinach, sundried tomatoes, pine nuts, and a touch of tomato); Orecchiette Dello Chef (broccoli rabe, sausage, garlic and olive oil and a touch of tomato); and Pollo Sorrentino (layered with eggplant, mozzarella topped with marinara sauce and a touch of demi glace). Try the delicious Linguine with Lobster in White Wine Clam Sauce for a culinary experience you won't soon forget.

The restaurant has gone downhill since the last time I was there. The food was mediocre. The salad was limp and the mushroom pasta dish had changed and the sauce was not to my liking--- too spicy. The service initially was excellent and then tapered off trying to pay. The noise level is unacceptable. The construction made parking challenging and the construction outside the restaurant prevented eating outside which diminishes the noise. Not my first pick in West Palm Beach any more. I love the others owned by the same people in Boca Raton and Aventura.

Service attentive Food was good Only complaint was that chicken sorrentina was ordered and we received chicken scarpariello. Waiter misheard or misunderstood. Even though it was not what was ordered it was good

Overall, we were very pleased with the food selections, portion for the price and service. Suggestions: Waiter should serve wine to guests directly and not reach over another diner with the glass. One of the busboys was wearing a shirt with sleeves obviously too long for him, while a wait staff member was wearing one with sleeves too short. Management should assist those with limited means with presentation- there are methods to use to make them look much more professional without added cost. The Manager who was "training" a new busboy by telling him someone dropped a hundred dollar bill under the table, instead of being truthful (it was a napkin placed on the lap of a toddler in a high chair, which fell upon their departure), was very condescending- to that employee and I did not appreciate the manner in which he treated the employee to "train him correctly". As an educator, there are ways to teach and maintain the person's dignity! I would and have recommended the restaurant to friends after our visit. However, management needs improvement- the workers were fine!

The most outstanding thing about our experience was the service. Our waitress was wonderful but so was the host. And I got a friendly greeting from every staff member that I encountered in passing. Well done!

The risotto was out of this world. The pizza crust was a little meh but the meatball on the pizza was fantastic.

Excellent service, delicious food, and great ambiance! I had the pasta special with seafood and it was outstanding. My friend had a mushroom pasta dish which was also delicious! We gave in and had chocolate cake for dessert to celebrate our birthdays. My only suggestion would be to let people know how much the specials are because then we can make an informed decision about what to order. Yes, we can ask, but sometimes we feel funny and don’t want to look cheap. I thought the value overall was excellent and I even had leftovers! Since the food is homemade, I would definitely come back! Great waiter too!!!!

Nice ,dressy casual spot with lively bar in Rosemary center w palm beach.
The octopus appetizer was a bit tough.chick francese tasty, talapia oreganata perfectly done..
Seafood fra diavolo..meh..artisenal bread excellent. Service capable.
This is a good option if looking for a more reasonably priced meal than offered in palm beach.. would return.
Easy walk from sapodilla parking garage.. (1st 80 min free)

The overall experience was ok. The food was very good but our main dishes came out as we were finishing our appetizer. The food service felt rushed but the actual service was awful. The waiter came as were were finishing our meal to ask if it was okay and it took a very long time to get our check. Our reservation was for 6:30 and they we not all that busy for us to be checked on.

We were seated in a small dining area off the bar as there is construction going on outside. We had the area to ourselves and it was nice and quiet.

We dined Al Fresco along Rosemary Ave because the fountain was under construction. The service was good, the food was good.

Last Saturday afternoon, I took my parents out to Il Bellagio before attending Man of La Mancha at the Kravis Center. Being from Miami, I hadn't been to City Place in years and much to my surprise it was a construction zone!!! Nevertheless, we enjoyed a very pleasant meal on the patio on the west end of the restaurant. A steady breeze provided natural AC and a very attentive wait staff couldn't have been more efficient. My wife, Father and I had the risotto (both shrimp and mushroom) while my Mother had the salmon. All delicious and expertly prepared. We started with an appetizer of the calamari and zucchini which were crisped to perfection and accompanied by a seasoned but not too spicy tomato sauce. While searching on line, I noticed a summer wine special (free bottle) when making a reservation. The special was honored and the wine very drinkable. Aside from the excellent waiter, the manager also attended to us to insure that all was well. I recommend Il Bellagio with our hesitation for a reasonable, quality meal with great service. Cannot wait for the construction to be over and have the fountains back!!!

I was just not happy the conditions because of all the construction - It was uncomfortable getting in to the restaurant - I know its not your fault - somehow it would have been nice to know this before hand otherwise really like the place

We had a terrific time there to celebrate my mom's 88th birthday. The hosts and servers could not have been more accommodating.
The food ($19.95 for a delicious lobster dinner), was spectacular and the portions huge.
We do go to Il Bellagio fairly regularly, but our last experience there really took things to the next level in the hospitality and culinary departments.

I ordered 2 of the same margaritas and they were vastly different in alcohol content, taste, and color.

Food was outrageous - I had a shrimp risotto that was outstanding. I would give this place 5 stars but for a few issues:

1. Strong smell of bleach. There were “wet floor” signs in the middle of the dining room.

2. Air conditioning was not working! When we sat down, we asked the waiter if they could lower the air - his response “they’re working on it”.

When we walked in, we should of been told the a/c was on the fritz. You figure management (there were 3 young men dressed in either suits or professionally dressed) would stop by the table to “check in” and nothing.

Would we go back? Yes. Management just needs to be forthcoming with the guests and polish up on their skills.

The food had a good taste, however, extremely over priced. The service was unacceptable. The waiter offered to have me taste a wine, I didn’t like it, I asked for a known drink. The waiter took the wine and brought me the requested drink. At the end brings me the bill and to my surprise the bill included the wine, that was supposed to be a taster. The place was empty, no need for reservations. I wouldn’t recommend and I won’t be returning.
