Solid Meal While At Mohegan Sun

Sat at the bar to grab a bite to eat, bartender was very friendly and the service was good. Not a drinker so the refills on the soda were good. Had the meatballs and they were very good, although I would have liked more sauce on them to keep them moist, but you could tell that the meat in them... read more

We had dinner before a show at Ballo. The food was amazing. The shrimp scampi and scallops were delicious! It was a little pricey, about $100 pp, but that included a drink, a bottle of wine, a salad, dinner and dessert. Everything was top notch!

We celebrated mother's day with a trip to Mohegan and treated ourselves to a nice lunch. I typically do not enjoy the dining at Mohegan. Not one restaurant has been really good since they took away Fedilia's. We decided to try a new one and chose Ballo. We ate in between lunch and dinner. Staff was extremely accomodating.

My wife and I had been dying to have a proper dinner at Ballo after visiting the bar one night. We had high hopes, and the team at Ballo did not just meet our expectations but shattered them. It easily ranks among some of the best Michelin star restaurants we have ate at. Our server AJ made great recommendations, knew... More

The atmosphere is very cool; it's modeled after an Italian abbey. The restaurant is very large with a lounge next to the casino a very large oval bar and a very nice dining room. There is also a private dining room with a fire place. Our waitress was very friendly and offered us drinks and dinner special immediately. We started... More

This was our first visit to Ballo and we were not disappointed. We sat at the bar, the bar is very large. There was only one server at the bar but she served everyone with no problem. She suggested for us to get the special which was the ribeye for 2. It was amazing. We ordered 1 extra side which... More

We booked this restaurant because we were coming in town for the Kenny Chesney concert and Ballo did not disappoint. My husband and I have been to this restaurant before, but this experience was amplified due to the exceptional server waiting our table. Thank You Rachel!!

This restaurant is located in the Mohegan Sun Casino immediately off the casino floor. An unusual location for such a find restaurant. The restaurant itself is warmly furnished and quite. The first time we were invited by friends and didn't expect much. We were completely amazed at all features of the restaurant. They have, indeed, placed a very first class... More
