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 is always a favorite of mine and make it a point to eat whenever at Mohegan. Marshall was our server and a true professional in in every way. He was discreet, helpful and really enhanced my dining experience. The pasta was cooked perfectly al dente and the salad was both crisp and cold. I will look forward to a... More

Loved the fact this was a high end buffet with something for everyone. Food was fresh, hot and served buffet style w/a smile. Only thing I didn't like was the tip cup in front of the omelet station...you have to be kidding!

I stumbled across BALLO about three years ago while exploring Mohegan Sun. Each time I have eaten here, the service has ALWAYS been outstanding and I have never had a bad meal here. Can't wait to go back!

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
