Situated on the Basingstoke Canal, Bellini offers a little taste of Italy right on your doorstep. The al fresco seating area, which boasts plenty of seating and a colourful border of plants and foliage, makes for an enticing welcome indeed. The vast menu offers Italian classics with something for every palate and every pocket. Plump for an indulgent dish of fettuccine aragosta – the delicious pasta is topped with a fresh half lobster, in a white wine sauce of fresh clams, prawns, garlic and chilli. Pizza-lovers are also well catered for, and we thoroughly recommend the calzone with mushrooms, ham, blue cheese and black olives. Complement your meal with a glass of wine and round things off with a rich Italian coffee. The authentic fare is enough to make you feel as though you’ve been whisked away to the sunny Mediterranean, but the service adds another level of Italian charm.
