Bellacino's: New Pastas and Perfectly Portioned Combos

By on September 15, 2009

It’s lunch time, and we are HUNGRY!!!! A trip to Bellacino’s sounds like the perfect fix for a hungry office. Four of us decided to go out to lunch to this Pizza/Grinder heaven on Riverside Drive. The place was packed and smells from the huge, open kitchen were drifting through the restaurant. I could hardly wait to look at the menu, but had a good idea of what I would order. Being a very popular eatery, we had a few minutes to decide what we would each like to order.


After glancing through the entire menu, I decided to go for a lighter option: The 4″ Turkey Light sandwich and a fresh side salad sounded like the perfect pair! This mouthwatering grilled sandwich consisted of fresh, thinly-sliced turkey, fat free mozzarella cheese, lettuce, tomato, and drizzled with fat free mayo. The flavors truly complimented each other when the ingredients were folded over and ran through the conveyor-belt oven. All of the ingredients in the colorful salad were fresh and brought out to me before the meal. The small sandwich and side salad is a great combination that Bellacino’s just introduced, and is the perfect amount of food! Two of the office guys ordered one of the “New Pastas” that Bellacino’s has to offer. Out came a heaping bowl of Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo with beautifully buttered garlic toast triangles. The sauce on this entree was bursting with flavor and very well seasoned, tossed with al dente fettuccine and sprinkled with spices. It was so exciting to be one of the first in Tulsa to taste one of Bellacino’s newest pastas! Lastly, my other co-worker ordered the juicy Chicago Steak Grinder. This beautiful sandwich came out with thinly sliced ribeye steak smothered in mushrooms, onions, mozzarella cheese, and a thin layer of Bellacino’s very own garlic spread. No matter how full I was, I was still eying that sandwich! My coworker orders it every time he comes to this awesome Italian eatery. I may have to try it next time!


The service was very impressive and we were greeted with a friendly, hard-working staff. The atmosphere was very clean, and the manager was very personable! He was busing tables, helping out in the kitchen, running the register, talking to guests, and doing whatever needed done at that moment. I was very impressed! Our office will definitely order lunch from Bellacino’s again very soon!
