When Bellini's reopens at the end of the summer, it will be much different than the restaurant you know and love.

If you live in Clifton Park or spend any time there eating out, chances are you have spent a nice romantic evening dining at Bellini's Italian Eatery. That dining spot is about to undergo a transformation from a date destination to a golfing simulator and take out destination.

According to an announcement on their Facebook page, Bellini's shutdown on Mother's Day to begin renovations and basically a transformation into Bellini's Counter, Bellini's 2-Go and "The Bunker," an indoor simulator and bar.

Bellini's says the new to-go location will feature many of Bellini's current menu options for takeout and the Counter will offer wraps, salads, pasta, and more. You may already be familiar with the Counter as there are three other locations in the Capital Region, including one in Latham and two in Albany. Plus, Bellini's will provide food for the Bunker. I know, there are a lot of changes to soak in here!

My wife Stacy and I have spent a few great evenings dining at Bellini's as we loved the atmosphere and well, it is super close to our home. Which is always a plus when you are paying a babysitter! If you love dining in at this location as well, Bellini's did comment on their Facebook page they are "...currently looking for a location in Clifton Park to look to bring our full-service Bellini’s and Bellini’s Counter concept together at some point soon."

On the other side, local folks are always raving about the food at Bellini's Counter! Coupled with Bellini's to-go, you will still be able to enjoy some good eats from Bellini's in Clifton Park.
