Wonderful taste of Italy in Vietnam

I'd googled best Italian restaurant in Saigan and this appeared. It did not disappoint. Every dish was beautiful and delicious. The owner and staff were very bubbly and friendly. Ask for wine choices, the list was huge and we wanted a good Italian wine. Great place to take friends and dates.

We are extremely surprised to say we have had possibly the best italian meal of our lives in this little gem in Vietnam! As huge lovers of Italian food, we had to search out this restaurant after reading the great reviews. The building itself is charming, we were offered a choice of table and settled for a window seat on... More

Having seen the rating for this restaurant I set my expectations perhaps a bit high. I've been here a couple of times now and to be honest, both menu and choice of drinks here is good and the staff is really attentive. However, if you expect something special for a romantic lunch or dinner I cannot recommend this place. Most... More

Have been to Ciao bella a few times now, and have never been disappointed. It is a little small and cramped, but the food more than makes up for it. The salmon is to die for, and the service really is excellent. Perfect place to have a bottle and of wine after work

What an amazing restaurant!! Read quite a few reviews on this place so for our last night here decided to give it a go, the staff and the food were absolutely amazing!! We were instantly impressed by this place the second we sat down, a complimentary glass of Prosecco and a bread basket with dips. Starters and main course were... More

Honestly I went to this restaurant because it was closer to my hotel than other Italian restaurants but I had a lovely meal, and can strongly recommend it. Fresh, crunchy, real bread with roast garlic, balsamic & oil and dip, plus a 'welcome' glass of champagne was a cute (& very welcome) touch. The ravioli was serviced fast and was... More

If your are in the mood for something other the brilliant Vietnamese cuisine, you have to try Ciao Bella. Good traditional Italian food, nice wine selection and reasonably priced.

I am a foodie and have eaten at countless Italian restaurants all over the world, including Italy. This place was the best Italian restaurant I've ever been too! funny cuz it is located in Vietnam rather than in Italy or the USA. Best food ever! Ate here twice on my vacation. They provided free bread with 3 extremely delicious dips... More

This was a mediocre attempt at italian cooking. The pasta was overcooked and a little mushy. Also, the prices represented no bargain for mediocre food. The place is popular, but probably due to the location, one time diners reading reviews that were crafted by uninformed pallets.
