Absolutely the best filet I've ever had!

Good is superb. I've had the petite filet twice and it is absolutely delicious. Friends also rate this as their go to place for something special. Service is wonderful, timing is perfect. The only down side is the main room is somewhat noisy. Sit in one of the areas on the east side, where you... read more

This is my go to restaurant since it overall has good food, good service and a great outdoor patio. They have a great selection of flat breads.

Even after reading recent reviews we decided to give Ciao Bella the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately, the public was right. Ambiance looks nice but the high ceiling makes a lot of echo in the main dining room and therefore noisy. The staff seems welcoming, although our waiter seemed a bit rushed. My husband ordered tomato basil soup that seemed... More

I had never been to, or heard of this restaurant until I met friends there last week. The food was excellent, our server was very patient with us and went over and above when one of our group wished she had ordered something other than what she did after seeing my order. It is a bit pricey but so worth... More

Our friends treated us to a delightful dinner @ Ciao Bella. My choice was the summer linguine was a colorful presentation of fresh tender, young asparagus and sweet peas, tasty bits of pancetta, combined with an ideal cream sauce, not too rich nor light/bland. Having chosen the full order, I enjoyed leftovers for a light lunch the next day. Btw,... More

Surf & turf......ribeye was rated as just ok....but Copper River Salmon was excellent. Served on a bed of spinach with a white wine and butter reduction. Excellent stuff. Would come here again.

We came in a little late and had a few dietary restrictions but our server was quick, accurate and informative. The appetizers we got were the calamari, the brussel sprouts and the tomato, avocado bruschetta. All of this was fantastic, I loved the hint of honey on the brussel sprouts and the calamari was quite possibly the best I have... More

Ciao Bella is out go to meals after work. The food is well prepared and the service quick and friendly. Check out the halibut when it's available! Scott, the manager, is a great guy and knows what it takes to run a great restaurant. Enjoy!
