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."

We went to Ballo last Saturday night, our fourth time dinning there. We were seated and ordered a bottle of wine some appetizers and dinners. The waitress came back some time later to tell us they were, "looking for our wine". When she did finally come back she did not have the correct bottle, but presented it as if she... More

We met friends here for dinner and had an incredible feast! Andrew was our server and was extremely knowledgeable, answering all of our questions and making several recommendations. We had lobster tail, mushroom risotto, veal Marsala and tagliatelle with shrimp. All the dinners were terrific. We were not rushed at all, even though it was very busy. Thoroughly enjoyed it

The food at Ballot is very authentic Italian. And its delicious! The raviolis tastes just like my Nonnies. Everyone is very accommodating and the restaurant is romantic. The prices are a little high but its worth Everypenny!

Had the surf and turf on Valentine's Day which consisted of a giant ribeye cooked perfectly and giant shrimp to match! Entree was for two and was plenty! Started with delicious cocktails and the freshest best caesar salad ever! The dressing is like a paste, they definately make their own. That was enough to share as well. Great place, will... More

We had dinner at Ballo Monday night. The waiter was very helpful and informative. He was right about everything he suggested from appetizers through dessert. The food was very good and came in huge portions. I would recommend this restaurant.

I had a birthday dinner for my boyfriend. There were 12 in our group. The service was impeccable from the time we sat down to the time our night was over. The food was amazing not one complaint. I can’t wait to have dinner here again.

Johnaten our wait person made this meal perfect, he knows every item, the content, and how it is served, good way to start a gourmet meal. The strip steak with the shrimp was more than perfect, my wife had the scallop and scampi and said it was the best meal she has had in many times at 5 star restaurants.... More

Had dinner Friday night - our waitress was friendly informative on menu items and made recommendations. Caesar salads were good but had to much dressing. We had eggplant parm and veal Marsala both were good but lacked flavor - almost like it needed seasoning, herbs or spices -very bland- we had roasted Brussels sprouts with honey - they were very...

We gave my boyfriend's parents a gift card for Christmas and they asked us to join them. We have eaten here a few times and it's always delicious. The service was excellent as usual. I would recommend trying a steak dish when you go. We always get at least one and share b/c the portions are great and it's always... More
