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.

For whatever reason, the restaurant was under-staffed on this day. The service was very slow. Thew food was up to its normal high quality.

My daughter took me here for my birthday. It is her favorite restaurant. I agree. The prices are a little high for dinner unless one has a Groupon coupon or a discount coupon. In any case, it has become one of my favorite restaurants. I highly recommend the veal picatta with a side dish of pasta.

Our family recently held an event at Ciao Bella. They did a great job of working with us because we had some guests who have food issues. The service was good, and the food was wonderful. Thanks to all for making this a memorable event.
