We love everything about Belotti, especially the pasta. I rotate between the AGNOLOTTI DI LIDIA and the CASONCELLI. The flavors are incredible. The antipasto is really good, too. Every friend that we've taken here enjoys it as much as we do. It's a good thing...More

We have been wanting to dine at Belotti with our ItaloAmerican cousins from the East Bay for awhile, then we saw the review on Check Please and made reservations. It met, even exceeded our expectations. It is the type of cozy Oakland Rockridge restaurant i...More

This is the most authentic Italian food I've had in the Bay Area. The place is small but the flavors are huge and the staff is very friendly.
