Best food I had on the trip. Great service too!

Fillet mignon is just the best and the bread is beyons amazing. Menu is a little more expensive than some but is well worth the premium.

Met two other couples here who we generally see only on Kaua'i. Had starters of shrimp and calamari which were very good, light breading on both. The meals around the table were three pastas, Ahi, walleye, and Herbed Natural Salmon. Around the table all the meals were excellent. My wife's walleye was lightly breaded, so it didn't destroy the taste... More

Went here after work with coworker. We had some brussel sprouts that were excellent. They have 2 prices for menu so if you don't want a big meal you can scale it down. I had the seafood pasta that was filled with lots of seafood. The bread that came with the meal is baked onsite and was also excellent! When... More

Had a business lunch last week and everything was great. Service was spot on. Refills, menu suggestions, etc... The tomato soup looked amazing and 3 of 5 had the salmon special and they all said it was delicious. I'm on a super strict food plan and they accommodated me perfectly. Thank you!

2 business associates and myself went here without reservations on a Wednesday evening. It was busy and they said they'd seat us in 20 - 30 minutes. We were directed to the lounge area. It was noisy. And of course when it's noisy, you try to over come the noise and it gets louder and louder. But the service in... More

When I am in Bloomington and looking for somewhere for dinner, Ciao Bella is always one of my regular places. It is a large restaurant with plenty of seating and a great bar area. During the warmer weather you can sit outdoors in the garden area or at the outside bar, which are both good. They cater for larger groups... More

A large group had just completed a meeting since we were forming a new district team. What a way to seal the deal with a nice meal. My filet was outstanding!! Flavorful and wonderfully tender! French fires were a bit less imaginative - but tasty. Great company, super service and nice atmosphere. To bad I had to leave a little... More

Busy place! Stopped by for dinner on a Tuesday evening around 5:30 and managed to get a table for 5 (reservations are recommended ... even for Tuesday). Server was excellent. Since we were on a business trip, we needed separate checks and she handled it well. No errors. Food was excellent. The bread that they serve before dinner was very... More
