As you can see from my previous write ups, I travel well, I was a culinarian at my previous life and have dined in variety places, from neighborhood dives to burger joints to 3 Michelin Star restaurants. My quest as a customer is to find not just good food but craveable food. On top of that I was raised in... More

Bought the Groupon for the restaurant not knowing anything about it. After describing what kind of wine we like our server recommended one. She was spot on!! The food was delicious! We had ridden the Harley out there ...and after dinner while getting on the bike the owner came and shook our hands and introduced himself. A wonderful experience!

Ciao Bella has an authentic Italian decor as well as menu. We tried several appetizers and multiple entrees and shared a dessert to get a true feel for the restaurant. Everything was delicious, the wine list was also very nice. The service was impeccable, our server was very personable and attentive to all of our needs. After we demolished our... More

Really miss taste of Italy . J Kelleys in Lansing serves Dom's Chicken Francese on Wednesday and Friday. The original recipe ! . Hard to say , but go to an Irish bar in Lansing and get better Italian food than at Ciao Bella !!!!

First time visitors & a wonderful romantic surprise! Nice & quiet atmosphere with attentive & friendly wait staff. The waitress Sylvia was great & we spent a wonderful time with the proprietor, Joe, who came here from Italy 16 years ago. We spent much time talking about mutual favorite places in Rome & Verona. Great authentic Italian food as well... More

Ciao Bella is ahead of its time for the area. The local demographics do not care for a la carte pricing because it it not what they are used to. Teibels and Livios are two area favorites that include everything for one price. CB is excellent quality of food and reasonably priced as you can be when you compare it... More

I did a take-out order and everything tasted awesome. Everyone had smiles on their faces .. since I did take out my interaction was with the hostess and she was very friendly.... More

Yesterday I took my girls out school shopping and they wanted pizza. There seems to be no chain pizza places in Schererville so when we spotted Ciao Bella's we pulled in. I was expecting a pizzaria, but this was definately more upscale, but the girls had fun! The wait staff was polite, but not overly friendly, the service was good,... More

Stopped in for lunch. Had the build your pasta lunch (choice of pasta, sauce, and up to 3 toppings). I had the chicken spinach with tomato cream sauce. It definitely needed seasoning. Service was attentive-tables are quite close together so waitress has to reach over to refill water. Id go back.

I keep going to this restaurant because the food in great. Kudos to the chef. I went three times, dinner and lunch. Every time I have another story about the service. Once there was a singer that sang so loud that was impossible to hold a conversation. He was very good but I went to the restaurant to eat and... More
