Italian owners and it shows. One the best Italian restaurants in HCMC. Pasta is to die for. Tiramisu, one of the best I tried. Visited twice and always full but since it is spread within three small floors, it did not feel crowded. Great quality, reasonable prices, cozy atmosphere. If you like Italian food, I strongly recommend this place, you... More

Found this restaurant by incident as we were going for a beer in the afternoon. Found the interior and menu interesting and booked a table for dinner. Definately not disappointed with food and service.

Been putting off going here as I had a less than stellar experience at the Ciao Bella chain in London, though this is nothing to do with the UK Ciao Bella chain. Came here with the family and my kids can be very picky, but they loved everything they ordered. Fantastic Italian food, every dish we ordered was great, only... More

Walked in solo to a bustling restaurant, was sat at once, given a glass of Perseco upon sitting by italian owner? Asked by 2 different people how everything was-had Margherita pizza and was very good. This is Vietnam, everywhere you go you have to alert them you are done, not bad service, they want you to be happy! Would recommend... More

Made a reservation through my hotel for 5:30pm. This is my 2nd time here, the first was AWESOME. Arrived and was sat down and given a glass of sparkling wine. Ordered the fried olives and posh carbonara. The food was good, but the service was awful. My plates were taken but was never asked if I wanted another drink, or... More

So there reaches a point when you've had enough Sticky Rice and Spring Rolls and you find yourself in Saigon. When that happens you could do a lot worse than go to Ciao Bella and authentic Italian Restaurant run by an eccentric Englishman! The atmosphere is typical Italian the service is exceptional and the food is outstanding. Now this isn't... More

From the moment we arrived we had a positive feeling. The staff are very attentive, the manager/owner very passionate about his food and within minutes we get an explanation of the menu, bread, nibblies and a complimentary glass of sparkly. Every dish we chose was good - Deep fried mozarella, Pasta with sea urchin cream sauce, crab and chilli &... More
