What a cute little restaurant just a half block from the Sheraton Saigon! We went early as we had to get up the next morning for an early flight home. We were greeted and given a glass of champagne (free) and the menus. There were specials listed on their blackboard as well. We ordered the calamari and zucchini appetizer, which... More

What a grand little spot, great food + service. We had a little seat by the window and it was so nice watching the city bustling past and enjoying a great meal inside, recommend.

Who would have thought you would find Italian food of this quality in Vietnam. The restaurant has a beautiful atmosphere and the staff are lovely and very attentive. The portion sizes are generous our salad was way bigger than expected. The pizza has a great crispy base and wonderful flavour. The pasta has a beautiful flavour with a choice of... More

I am from NY so I have high expectations and also have a great deal of skepticism whenever I have Italian food outside of NY or Italy. Ciao Bella is a rare find and beats all expectations. Not only is the food amazing, the owner makes you feel at home. As a solo traveller it was a warm and friendly... More

We just came back and we really enjoyed the food. We ordered pizza, Melanzane a la Parmigiana and Spaghetti with Posh Carbonara. All of it was really good and at a good price.

After living in SE Asia for almost 3 years, I've worked hard to find good italian food. Some places go OK, but I was blown away from the quality and flavour at Ciao Bella. Both our meals were fantastic, and the atmosphere was great. Only complaint where that the staff were obviously stressed and made us feel rushed a bit... More

I have always been fond of Italian food and in Singapore this is usually very pricey especially if you want really authentic food and of good quality. I lived in VN for 3 months and this was easily my restaurant of choice when I wanted western fare. I would recommend their posh carbonara and pizzas. They also give out a... More

Excellent food and service by all staff. We both had posh carbonara which was absolutely fantastic. Great value for money and would certainly recommend a visit here. Also visited the other 2 restaurants safron and portofino, however, this one was our favourite!

We've been here at night and we love the asmostphere here a lot, very cozy and romantic for couple. We chose salmon and lagsana that are very tasty. We love the food but time waiting a bit long, it may goid for dating but not good for rushing people. Overall this restaurant is value for money

What a place, arrived so hungry and greeted with complimentary prosecco, fresh breads and delicious dips. The meal that followed was so tasty, the staff authentic, knowledgeable and friendly. Can definitely recommend coming to this lovely little place!
