Great Italian Food

This restaurant had been suggested by a friend who works very close by. We had seen Italian restaurants in other cities in Vietnam but had purposely avoided them because you just can't guarantee the authenticity of the meals (or the ingredients). Not here though. We ate twice in two nights at... read more

This restaurant is run by an Italian family, and it shows clearly on the food. Ingredients are fresh, pasta is homemade, and sauces are just right. Portions are enormous and you walk out completely full. There is also a great variety of wines, starters and desserts, all with great options.

The mood is great!! Since started to dessert, every dishes are awesome!!! Especially, the pasta which one mix with whole real cheese. And the pizzas are quite good also, the crust doesn't only have chewy but also crisp. Wonderful night and wonderful place that you won't regret to visit it!!

Needed a nice Mediterranean meal after 2 weeks in Vietnam! Loved it! First bread in weeks and amazing food. Service was great and enjoyed every dish. Price was good but we had too much wine! Thanks! Lovely evening

this is not my first visit to Ciao Bella. I was a frequent guest last year. I doubt that they changed the owner or manager 'cos I had a very bad experience in my luncheon today. 1. Ciao Bella should hang the "Foreigner et Expats Only" board right on the doorstep instead of conveying it via their service attitude to... More

We were welcomed with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine & breads. Very good choice on menu and was pleasantly surprised with option to order smaller plates of pasta. Food was tasty. Quick friendly service & finished with complimentary shot & flower bracelet.

Food is good but overpriced. I went there alone and was thinking about having not too much, so I ordered half portion of pasta and a tiramisu. The pasta was really tasty so that I felt more hungry than I haven't had it. It ended up costing me more than VND400,000 and I just wanted to grab sth else to... More

Great service, location and atmosphere. We were given delicious complimentary bread and a glass of prosecco when we sat down. I had the seafood linguine in a white wine sauce and it was amazing. My boyfriend had tenderloin steak - it was a very generous size and cooked perfectly! We received complimentary limoncello after dinner and the server gave me... More
