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 were staying at the Mohegan Sun when we ran across this interior restaurant. It was truly a unique dining experience. The service was great and the fare was exceptional. They have the best Caesar Salad this side of Rome and their homemade pastas and sauces are delectable...

After checking trip advisor ratings, I had hoped to be able to eat here while staying. We ended up looking for a place to eat at prime crowd dinner time. Lines everywhere! Decided to check Ballo just in case. It was busy but there were a few high top tables available and we were seated immediately. The atmosphere was great,... More

There is nothing to not like about Ballo. From the moment we entered the restaurant to the moment we left, we were treated as true guests. The service was impeccable, unobtrusive, and the food was outstanding. Note: Try the meatball appetizer and the brussel sprouts side. You won't be disappointed. Any entrée will be perfect.

Went there the other night 4 family members for dinner. One had the Cavatelli Pasta and LOVED it. One had the Spaghetti & meatballs and said it was just OK- meatballs were the biggest I've ever seen. The other two had the Margherita Pizza and LOVED it. Atmosphere was terrific & service was wonderful. Definitely would go back. Dinners are... More

We recently returned to Ballo for dinner before a concert and the food and service was as good as the first visit. Great atmosphere/decor and a beautiful bar. I highly reccomend giving this restaurant a chance if you are visiting Mohegan Sun.

My friend and I had dinner at Ballo on Friday June 6th. We had passed by it many times but had never gone in. All the staff were friendly and professional. The atmosphere is pleasant. We were not rushed, everything came out at a good pace. The bread they serve is the crusty chewy kind. My friend loved it but... More

Delicious Food and Reasonable prices! We were a party of 4 and each couple had a food credit included with our stay. They gladly honored both of them and charged us individually so that we could use them.

Had dinner here last night. Super attentive and quick service. Great for a small dinner and catching up with friends. The pizza was excellent! Enough left for lunch the next day.

From the appetizers to our entrees and dessert, everything was very good. Our server was great as were all the staff. I highly recommend you get the macaroni and cheese flambe appetizer. It is not on the menu. It is made table side inside of a huge wheel of aged parmesan.
