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."

One of my favorite spots for dinner when at Mohegan Sun

Great place for Italian, though a little pricey. Food has always been hot and service is very good. Large U shaped bar and nice couch and club chair locations (3 or 4 different areas) to hang out with friends. 2 very nice private dining rooms. Sitting in the front half allows you to look onto... read more

Have been here several times. Indifferent waiters, weird (!) pizza,pricey wine, good salads, odd atmosphere (it's right on the casino floor almost), lovely decor. They're trying to give an upscale experience, but because of where they are, it's hard. Great croutons on the Caesar Salad!

my husband and I go here once a year when we visit Mohegan Sun. This time we ordered the meatball appetizer which was delicious and we had the pork belly. I found the pork belly to be the highlight of my meal. It came with honey and chile. The pork belly was so nice and crispy. My husband isn't fond... More

Our waiter was Jody a seasoned pro who gave us attentive service! The appetizers Heirloom Mellon & Prosciutto Di Parma and the Caprese were delightful. Our favorite entree was the Ricotta Gnocchi with bacon, corn & sugar snap peas. The desserts were tempting and tasty, we only wish we could have tried them all! We truly enjoyed every moment of...

Wonderful waitress (I wish I wrote down her name) - very attentive to our food issues and preferences. Her recommendations were perfect. She did not hover over/rush us, nor did she forget about us. I don't mind paying higher prices when the food and service are above average, as they were in this case. We would definitely go back. Oh,... More

We ate here on a recent Sunday night while the kids attended a concert. We were seated immediately and then greeted by our server, David. He was very attentive. We ordered a couple of Aperol Spritzes and also a bottle of Barolo (wines priced over $100 were half price on Sunday). The wine service was excellent. We ordered a meat... More

The service was outstanding, but the food was only average. Portions were also about average for pasta based meals. No complaints but also not above average either. The wait staff was attentive and prompt.

Wife and I stopped here for some drinks at the bar. From what I seen it was more of an upscale dining experience with a cocktail and wine list. We had 2 Grateful Deads and it cost $24. The people were very friendly and dressed according to the flavor of the restaurant. Will come here next time and try the... More

This is the best place at the casino for evening dining. The Italian food is out of this world good. We've been there several times and the food is great.
