Went for a business dinner. The Ciao Bella salad was awesome with feta and a vinaigrette. The spaghetti and meatballs were very good, so good I ate the whole plate even when I was stuffed and should have stopped.

Had a business dinner here in January. Excellent service. The calamary was OK (not excellent) - too oily. Their bread is excellent....very good Caesar salad and pasta with scallops. Overall had enjoyable experience. The team I was dining with also enjoyed their food - good seafood options as well. I would recommend the place for sure

Really great Italian food with options we had never tried before. Wonderful service...we would definitely go back. The only complaint my husband had was the small portion size of his spaghetti. Other than that, it was great!

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
