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."

Recently dined at Ballo, which is the Italian restaurant at Mohegan Sun casino. To start, we ordered a roasted beet salad and one appetizer to share. The calamari was fine, dipping sauce was spicy (but in a good way!) The portion was very large; it was a mistake to get something else to share as it is really more than... More

We have been to Ballo a few times, and every time has been wonderful. This time we had the arugula salad to start, which was well prepared. The staff brought us an additional sample appetizer from the chef (crostini with alouette cheese, very good!). Our waiter, Andrew, was very knowledgeable about the menu items and did not rush us nor... More

Three of us went here for dinner recently. I've read the reviews, took the advice of many and sat at the bar. We ordered two $50.00 rib eyes cut off the bone, brussel sprouts and sweet sausage pizza. We ordered drinks as well and planned to share all this food. First the steaks arrived on the bone so we had... More

My husband and I visited Ballo on a Monday evening in November during a night out at the casino. We have been to Ballo before and enjoyed our first visit also. We ordered calamari to start and it was very good. I ordered eggplant Parmesan (my favorite Italian meal choice) and house made pasta. My husband ordered a margarita pizza.... More

Enjoyed a friend's birthday dinner here with 7 others and we all cleaned our plates! Our server was awesome and made the experience that much better. Their menu has something for everyone, those looking to splurge or those on a budget. We were splurging, but the more reasonable options (the flatbread pizzas) sounded amazingggg. I had two vodka cocktails, very... More
