Excellent Italian cuisine. Had to try the calamari, it didn't disappoint. The gnocchi were like little pillows of heaven! This is a definite return trip!

We come here with our family once a month. The menu has excellent variety, and they stock many different wines. The Burratta, Bruchetta, Italian Sausage and Peppers, and Stuffed Pepper appetizers are excellent. All are big enough to share with two or three people. The Bolognaise sauce is delicious, and I highly recommend it on the Tagliatelle. The best desserts... More

The food was not even close to being good or authentic. There was a guy walking around with a micophone singing that was nothing but annoying. The place was over crowded, they only served wine and pop. Will not go back.

Best red sauce I've ever had. Always a smile at the door, seated immediately, wine choices are plentiful - just a great way to have dinner.

Our party of 4 had an outstanding dinner. The appetizers (ceviche and a humus dip) were both great. All entrees were also excellent. The only small criticism were that the my martini was left on ice too long so was a bit watered down and my wife's Moscow mule had a fairly tasteless ginger beer used in it

Very authentic menu, the owner is from Italy and his recipes are original. The staff is very efficient and provides great service. Very busy place, there are weekly cooking class, wine tastings and a live crooner weekly.

Our dining club friends love Ciao Bella. The food is authentic and the pasta dishes never disappoint. The wine selection is one of the best in the area. The location has a bit to be desired. The window views are of the parking lot. However, we can overlook this minor location issue because the food and service are always outstanding.

The selections were many and that made it a challenge to narrow it down to one selection. I went with the Eggplant Parmigiana and it was delicious. Eggplant was thinly sliced and somewhat crispy. Not crazy about the fact that everything is alacarte. Also am not sure why they give you a side of pasta AND potatoes with some of... More

A great place for delicious authentic Italian food. I love to come here when I'm tired of chain restaurants. The service is always friendly. And the food is consistently yummy.
