I had a three course lunch which comprised home made pea soup chicken arribita and apple crumble followed by a great cup of coffee... More

You know you've found a good thing when there are several middle age solo expat male diners enjoying a meal. Generous portions, delicious well prepared dishes and great service too. A welcome break from so many bad "authentic" restaurants in Saigon.

We really enjoyed our lunch at Ciao Bella. I had soup and a sandwich with fries and a coffee and cake for 180,000d! My fiancée had a delicious carbonara. We were pleased to find such good food and happy to pay a little more than we normally would. Worth a visit for a great Italian meal!

If I had to describe Chao Bella in one word it would be "AbsolutleyDelicious". Yeah, that's officially one word. If you're in Saigon and craving Italian food then this is your spot....but you might need to make a reservation.

Friendly staff welcomed us with sparkling drinks on the house and a very good treatment. Food was delicious, authentic thin crust crunchy pizzas and good salads also.

We visited this restaurant for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, attentiveness of the staff and the price. We have been and will be back in the future. The food was good comfort food and very acceptable, maybe not Michelin star quality but adequate and very good value for money.
