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."

My wife and I went to this fine restaurant recently and had a delightful experience. Since we both weren't too hungry we decided to order the meatballs from the appetizer list; one order for both of us. The 3 meatballs were huge and fantastic! So, along with the free bread and butter we spent $13 (drinks and tip excluded) and... More

With just a little spice this dish is divine! The pizza is great too but so is everything else. They have such a great menu you really can't go wrong.

I have been going to Mohegan Sun for years but had never dined at Ballo's until recently. I found that I was missing out on a real 'find'. My hairdresser had been there recently and was raving about the Brussel Sprouts. That may not appeal to all, but trust me, they were the best Brussel Sprouts we ever had! We... More

So we just left Ballo for our 27th wedding anniversary dinner. We each had 2 glasses of wine that where very good. My husband had the Chicken Parmesan, as the reviews on TA suggested was a good choice. For myself, ordered the serf N' turf recommended by our excellent server. I must say the atmosphere is elegant, yet can be... More

I was here with few close friends, over the weekend at the Casino. The ambience was very inviting. Service was quick and I found the staff very engaging. We had Bruschetta and Calamari for the Appetizers and Prosciutto, Margherita and Parmigiana for the main course. Portions were good and presentation was exquisite. Must visit for Italian if you are in... More

We had two great meals in this wonderful Italian restaurant. The veal parmagnia was great. Pasta sauce a little spicey. The spaghetti with mussels was fabulous. Lots of mussels with a delicious tomato based broth. Would highly recommend giving this restaurant a try.

We went for dinner on a Monday night and had a wonderful meal with a great bottle of wine. We've been a number of times and the meals are just great.

My husband and I went here on a comp. We were not happy with Tuscany the last few times and didn't know about Ballo. We had the meatballs as an appetizer. My husband had the pork which was so juicy and cooked perfectly. I had the rigatonis with sausage. Everything was fabulous! We had Frances as our server and she... More
