FAST!!!!

Talk about impressed!! We were very short on time - trying to make a concert and they got us in and served in less than 30 minutes!! Food was also very good - although maybe a little pricey. Really appreciated the great job they did knowing we had so little time.

The food was average at best. There was a guy walking around singing the Tuesday night we were there. He was a good singer but was so loud that it completely overwhelmed the tiny restaurant.

Had lunch with a friend. They ate from the luncheon buffet and did not finish the chosen chicken entree because of an unpleasant taste. Overheard others also complaining. The artichoke appetizer was delicious but overpriced at $6 for 6 small pieces. The ravioli was satisfactory, although I don't care for a creamy tomato sauce. Also did not care for the... More

My husband had been for lunch, thought we'd try it for dinner. The two of us did not have a reservation, but the did have a table for two, and there were plenty of customers on a Saturday night. We enjoyed our server, seemed to really have a conversation with you, even though he did have several large tables in... More

Nice little bar you can eat at if you don't want a table. All the food is good. The bread, oil and spice before the dinner is awesome!

Tried again , because of a recommendation by a friend . That was my last shot at it . Service was good but the food was awful . Seating was terrible . Long booths with individual tables really don't allow privacy . Surprised they are still in business ...

My wife and I came to lunch here on a Thursday which was "Build Your Own" pasta. The choices of pasta were many plus a myriad of sauces. In addition, the menu allowed up to 3 toppings. The service was excellent. Amber did a great job waitressing. She was nice, professional and courteous. The food (pasta) came out piping hot... More

We really enjoy going to Ciao Bella. The food and service are top notch. I recommend going during the week when it is less crowded.

I found this restaurant to be over priced and the quality of the food to be lacking. Nice atmosphere.

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
