Super atmosphere, decent choice of food and very tasty.The restaurant was well staffed. Complimentary drinks on arrival and departure. I`d advise booking in advance as the place was full.

Visited few times and never got disappointed. Food overall is not excellent but decent enough for an Italian fix when you live in HCMC. Do try the chef's sea urchin and crab meat spaghetti on the special menu. Great location, great atmosphere, great staff.

Arrived late, reserved table had been saved. Greeted with Prosecco, bread and three spreads. Menu was extensive with many choices. Servioce was attentive, including conversations with the delightful owner Tony and Ezio. A welcome break from three weeks of Vietnamese cuisine, but would be as great in any city as a warm neighborhood Italian restaurant.

It was a Friday night. We were so hungry, we called in and managed to get a seat just before the kitchen closed. Small and cozy place run by italians, serving up some really tasty and authentic food. Any better, you got to fly to Italy. It's on the arty-farty street of Dong Du, look out for the vintage Vespa... More

This is one of the best italian restaurants we have been to anywhere. To find it in Vietnam was even more surprising. The food was excellent, and the staff and managers were very friendly, efficient and made the experience very special. We really appreciated the complementary proseco on arrival and limoncello after our meal - nice touches. We enjoyed it... More

For Ho Chi Minh standards, it's pretty good but I was a little bit disappointed from one of there signature dish, the cheese was not good, probably too old (not in term of maturity but in terms of letting it outside for too long/used it too many times). Rest was great, I'd suggest going a little more easy on the... More

This restaurant is close to many top hotels and situated in District 1 in Saigon with a great mix of traditional and western food. Staff are very helpful with explaining the menu to those that are unsure of what is on it..a good place to go and experience... while in Saigon.

My friends and I just went to the this restaurant this evening. On entry we received a lovely basket of bread and prosecco. Our meals were delicious and very authentic. The staff, particularly the guy from northern Italy, were extremely attentive and quick to please. Once we had paid the bill we got a delicious shot of lemon cello. All... More

Staff - wonderful, caring and attentive. Service - absolutely amazing. Food - beyond absolutely amazing. We generally will have Italian out at least 3-4 times a month and nothing has ever been to close to this standard of food and service. We ate here for both of the nights we were in Ho Chi Minh and have spent every night... More

Many Italian restaurants have recently opened in HCMC but none of them can beat Ciao Bella... It's definitely the best Italian restaurant in town. All the dishes I have tried so far are yummy. I am a regular and happy customer. On top of that, there is a cosy atmosphere and the service is great.
