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."

I sat at the bar with my wife last Saturday night. The bartender, Rich, was fine til he saw a couple he knew sit down not too far away. We ordered. An hour later the VIPs next to us had eaten salads, their second entree (they sent the first one back), and were working on their complimentary dessert. We still... More

We chose this restaurant because it was listed as a gourmet Italian resurant. I ordered the swordfish. After nearly an hour, the swordfish was terrible. It was burnt so badly on the bottom I sent it back. For a 3 oz salmon steak, I've seen McDonalds beef patties that were larger and thicker. Another 20 min later another swordfish patty... More

Hello, Are you sure you have the right restaurant? We do not have Salmon on our menu and we only charge $29 for our swordfish. Is it possible you have us confused with another restaurant? Either way we would love to hear more about you experience and the chance to make it up to you. Thank you Ballo Italian management More

My wife and I have eaten here a few times. Consistently good Italian food with some unique/different items on the menu. Sort of an updated, cleaned-up Italian resturant.

My wife and I visited here with some friends for dinner. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The menu was full of good choices. We started with the bruschetta as an appetizer and it was delicious! Our meals came out within a decent time and everything was delicious as well. We will be back there for sure.

Amazing dinner on New Year's Eve. (Was regular menu, not a special menu). We started with the pizza as an appetizer and had entrees of chicken parm and spaghetti and meatballs. Food was wonderful - just as good as we have had when in Venice and Rome! Service was prompt and courteous. Cannot wait to return!

My wife and I have dined here twice and have enjoyed the offerings on both occasions. While they have been mostly very positive experiences, when the assistant waited came to the table at the start of the meal, my wife mentioned she would like bottled water. The server brought a plain, ceramic corked bottle such as used in many of... More

We've dined at Ballo twice, on October 18 and December 27, 2014. We had a wonderful experience each time! Service was prompt and impeccable. Do not be afraid to ask questions about the food preparation. Some people, myself included, are not well-versed in authentic Italian cuisine. The servers at Ballo know the dishes very well, and if they can't answer... More

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!
