Always dependable in terms of food and waitstaff. Don't be frightened into think it's too expensive. There are many items on the menu that are moderately priced. Order what you like and enjoy your experience at Ciao Bella!

Great atmosphere and service Never had a bad meal Had the risoto. Dining alone can be difficult at some restaurants but Ciao Bella always has a lively and friendly staff. It was another very good value and dining experience.

My wife and I recently took a day trip to the Mall of America in Minneapolis. An acquaintance of ours told us that we had to eat at Ciao Bella's while we were in the Twin Cities. We are so glad that we took his advice. Ciao Bella's is maybe 15 minutes from the mall -- depending on the traffic.... More

We took the family here and everyone had a wonderful meal. No complaints of any kind. The Italian dish were superb and the short ribs got raves. The salad was great and we loved the bread. The service was fine. It is a fine looking place but it is loud. My mother could not hear a thing. We spent about... More

Was right across the street from the hotel we stayed at so very convenient. A bit of higher end eatery but the food was great. The quinoa and asparagus salad is excellent! Service was first class as they consistently made a special vegetarian meal (was not on the menu) when asked for a colleague who was travelling with me. We... More

We stopped here for dinner. I actually needed to change our reservation almost last minute because we weren't going to make it on time and they were great about it. I loved how it was fabcier, and we felt welcomed even though I was probably the only one wearing what would be called appropriate clothing. We never felt unwelcomed or... More

I was there for a client meeting and was very happy that it was held at Ciao Bella. The food was extremely delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful as well. It was a bit noisy, however, we were able to conduct business just fine without any problems. Waiter was very energetic and provided great service. I had accidentally left an... More

I've dined here several times but last night was spot on. Maple glazed salmon was sublime. Meat & cheese, entree, wine, and molten lava cake perfect. Yes it's noisy, but I didn't want to talk after getting that meal!

This restaurant came highly recommended by the hotel. The food was good - not great. I had the lobster risotto and the lobster was not easy to find in the dish. My dining companion said his pasta with sausage and peas was very good. This restaurant has an excellent wine list. The one true downside of this restaurant was that... More
