We ate here during tet when most places were shut. As soon as we arrived from the crazy crowds we felt very relaxed and happy, the welcome glass of prosecco was a great touch! Lovely atmosphere, delicious Italian food and well trained and friendly staff. I definitely recommend if you want a change from vietnamese food/restaurant culture.

I love this place and eat here whenever i am in HCM. My kids loved the pizza and I love the carbonara. It comes out in a huge cylinder of parmesan cheese where the cheese is mixed in and then topped with an egg. It is Really delicious and the atmosphere is so perfect.

This is a great Italian restaurant, much like the really authentic ones in Italy or New York City. Upon entering, we were greeted by the owner, who is from Lucca, Italy. He gave us each a complimentary glass of Prosecco and seated us at a table by the entrance, which was open to the sidewalk - very nice ambiance. We... More

We arrived after a hectic flight from Ha Noi and wanted a bit of a treat before another flight out. Our shenanigans were rewarded with a greeting of a glass each of complimentary glass of prosecco each (I expect this was a Christmas special so don't expect this for sure!). We then had delicious food of originality and authentic Italian... More

My wife and I had lunch and dinner at Ciao Bella during our 3 day stay in Ho Chi Minh City. Tony Fox, the owner, was very friendly and gave us some much appreciated advice for our travels in the area. The food was delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive. We tried to have a 2nd dinner but... More

Ciao Bella is without a doubt my favourite restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City, the food is consistently great, the service the staff provide to ensure that we are satisfied is like nothing I've ever seen. If you live in Ho Chi Minh or are just visiting no doubt this little beauty should be the first restaurant you visit, it... More

The place is small but cozy. The stairs are somewhat steep. Service is attentive and food innovative. Excellent food, esp the uni pasta. Somewhat pricey but worth it. Highly recommended.

This is part of a family of restaurants within a block of each other. Portifino and Saffron the others. The manager know the menu and his staff. You get use to the service and the food is excellent. I had the Mousaca.

Got this place marked down because Trip Advisors ranks this restaurant top 10 in Vietnam in 2015 which to me is a great complement. The location is great, in the less busy street in the city center. Decoration is nice too, friendly and cozy. Good seating for couples. Service is fast and quite friendly, just as expected. Then come the... More

We visited this place twice during our stay in Ho Chi Minh..the staff are great and really friendly. The menu is quite varied and served Italian food, I hadn't tasted before. Well worth a visit, if you're in the city and fancy a night off from Vietnamese food.
