Description: Inspired by San Galgano in the hills of Tuscany, BALLO Italian Restaurant brings to life all the majesty of an Italian cathedral coupled with exceptional service and a fresh, authentic menu of Italian favorites. To start, guests will enjoy an extensive by-the-glass wine list and specialty BALLO cocktails while sitting in a stunning environment replete with arches, stone, sensual accents and multiple private spaces. The food at BALLO adds yet another level of celebration. Owner John Tunney is committed to fresh, locally grown produce and innovative Italian staples you can eat from Noon to Midnight, "I've always loved the idea of a pantry. A place where you are watching the freshest ingredients being prepared with the least amount of touch by the best pair of hands - and delivered in an open area as if you're in someone's kitchen."

This time we tried the special; lobster and shrimp over homemade pasta. The dish was fabulous! But, who wouldn't love homemade pasta with and excellent sauce and everything cooked to perfection. I have never had a... More

This is our favorite place to go at Mohegan Sun. Each time we sit at the bar and enjoy our drinks with a great bar staff. Places are set nicely at the bar and the staff seem happy to serve us. Try a thin crust pizza....absolutely perfect crust! We are never rushed and enjoy going back time after time. Alas,... More

Eating among the Gothic arches, you feel transported to some old place in Italy...amazing what they can do with some of these decorations! Great service, and delicious eggplant and veal parmigiano! We started with a very nice burrata with tasty tomatoes. For dessert, the white chocolate tipped canolli were terrific! The cuisine most definitely exceeded our expectations, being from New... More

We have been to Ballo several times but our most recent experience was the best. The place itself has the old world ambiance and is very warm and inviting. My meal, from appetizer to dessert was perfect. My companion was not pleased with his entree, but felt it might have been just his own preference regarding preparation. However, the waitstaff...

This was my second time eating at Ballo before a concert at the casino arena. The first time was a great dinner. This time the food was overcooked and the wines by the glass were very mediocre and had just been opened. It was disappointing as we enjoyed it so much the last time. At the prices charged it is...

My wife and I were staying at the Mohegan Sun when we ran across this interior restaurant. It was truly a unique dining experience. The service was great and the fare was exceptional. They have the best Caesar Salad this side of Rome and their homemade pastas and sauces are delectable...

After checking trip advisor ratings, I had hoped to be able to eat here while staying. We ended up looking for a place to eat at prime crowd dinner time. Lines everywhere! Decided to check Ballo just in case. It was busy but there were a few high top tables available and we were seated immediately. The atmosphere was great,... More

There is nothing to not like about Ballo. From the moment we entered the restaurant to the moment we left, we were treated as true guests. The service was impeccable, unobtrusive, and the food was outstanding. Note: Try the meatball appetizer and the brussel sprouts side. You won't be disappointed. Any entrée will be perfect.
