A Vegetarian's Delight

Hubby was craving for Italian and he recommended this place as he had been here before. So off we went. To begin with, the welcome bread was absolutely fresh from the oven and utterly butterly delicious!

My sister-in-law gave us a gift card for Ciao Bella for our 50th Anniversary and we were delighted. We live just a few miles from here but never saw it before. Really enjoyed the first course and had a great choice for our main course. Desert was equally wonderful. Our waiter was wonderful. He really took good care of us.

So first off, this was my very first time visiting Ciao Bella. Reason I chose this restaurant -- my sister and I needed to do something special for our mother and that neither of us had already had an opinion or expectation from previous experience. We were virgins this time around. And so was our mom (lol)! My mother was... More

Was in Minneapolis on business and wanted somewhere good to eat that wasn't at the Mall of America. This place was highly recommended on TripAdvisor so thought we give it a try. When we arrived on a Tuesday evening at 6:30 we were told the wait was 45 minutes ( would advise making reservations ahead of time). No where is... More

Spent a great afternoon with a girlfriend. The patio was perfect and when the wind came up, our waitress turned on the overhead heater. The service was perfect from the time we arrived to our departure 3 hours later. (No, we didn't take up a prime time table). If you go a little later in the afternoon you can be... More

I was in Minnesota for 12 days for business. We went to dinner here 2 nights of that trip. Great food and wine selection. Fabulous wait staff!

Came here for a romantic dinner. We did make reservations, but it wasn't too terribly full that I thought we required them. The atmosphere was nice and tastefully done. Our waitress was good with suggestions. We split a bottle of wine to start. Our entrees were the walleye (which the waitress suggested to me as I have never had walleye... More

I was impressed with dinner here! There was an ample variety of choices and the dishes were tasty. Everyone in our party was happy with the food. An added bonus was that they offer desserts in mini sizes... So I had a bit of tiramisu that tasted amazing but didn't include the guilt that normally comes with ordering dessert! :-)

Food was fantastic. Had the halibut special which was outstanding. The filet was very well done. Topped off with a delicious molten lava cake. Was a perfect ending to a perfect meal!

I come here once a week for lunch and usually have the fish special and the organic greens. It is so hard to find healthy food at restaurants in America. I love the fact that I know I am eating healthy, getting outstanding service, and dining in such a lovely atmosphere. Caio Bella is #1 on my dining list!
