My friends and I have been ordering from here for years. We have always had exceptional service and great food. The last time we ordered lunch it was just bad. From beginning to end.

I drove past this every day till a friend recommended it. the food is awesome, pasta dishes and pizza are excellent. It is not a high end place, there are tables, and the service is fine, but very limited space. My normally do takeout and it is always excellent

Ordered for takeout. All food was ready at the requested time. Very good. We ordered six different rolls for a small gathering and everyone enjoyed them. The pasta salad was fabulous.

Easy to get to off the highway and the food is just homey, lovely Italian-American fare that hits the spot every time. Even the haddock is delicious. I... More

We read the reviews and thought this would be a good place to go out for a special dinner while visiting WPI. At the last minute plans changed and we went elsewhere, which was for the better. On a sunsequent trip we went for a quick Sunday evening dinner and were very surprised when we arrived. After reading the reviews... More

Went to Ciao Bella based on the TripAdvisor reviews and ranking (#18 of 513 at the time of this writing). We also chose it because of its convenient location (easy on/off the highway). We were not at all disappointed! We were a large group (12 people) and they have only 8 tables, but they pulled a few together and we... More

Have ordered many items from the menu, very good from the chicken and pasta dishes to the lasagna. Daily specials listed on their facebook page. Delivery is a plus, always comes quickly and steaming hot. Customer for life!!
