Best Risotto ai Porcini that I had since a long time! As mentioned in another review, Ciao Bella ticks all the boxes. Friendly and welcoming service. Cozy atmosphere, good food and delicious homemade Limoncello. Would definitely visit again!

Always nice to know that there is a place like this in hcmc. Always friendly not over the top service and consistently great food. Perfectly cooked bacon which is rare in these parts.

Been here twice...once on a double date and once with the girls....only gripes putting Nutella in a crime brûlée? Panna cotta very disappointing. Served in a glass not on a plate with no wobble, no almond flavour and way too much gelatine....would not order again badly made overpriced Music could be turned down a bit? Positives are a great atmosphere... More

This is truly a jewel among the maze of Saigon restaurants. Not one thing would I change. Just the best of the best! Do not come here and leave this experience behind.

Walking around district 1 looking for a restaurant I stumbled upon this restaurant among many other shops on the busy street. Was greeted by friendly Vietnamese staff that spoke English. Menu was simple and they also had specials written on the board. I ordered the Ciao Bella salad and the posh pasta. The greens on the salad were fresh and... More

Lovely meal, order the carbonara as they'll bring the cheese wheel to your table, and mix the egg and pasta before your eyes. Friendly staff, lovely owner also.

When you run out of ideas for a date night, this little gem will never disappoint. Great Italian food, great service and my plus point is the complementary prosecco at the beginning. The Italian really know how to spoil their guests. My only feedback is the Rod Stewart's music. As a frequent diner there, it'd be great to have something... More

The lunch specials are awesome- a huge choice of soup+ salad/sandwich or a 3 course special (including... More
