“Awesome Food & Ambiance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Ciao Bella is a Real nice restaurant to go on a date or a dinner meeting. The food there is Top-Notch and the decor is perfect, and dimly-lit to complete the experience. The appetizers are tasty and the entrees are delectable. While there choose from the large wine menu. My co-workers and myself would come here quite frequently. It was our-"Go-To" spot. Enjoy!

“Amazing food and service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We came here on a date and it was amazing. When we first walked up we were worried about how casual everyone was dressed. We had made a reservation, and when we told the young lady outside this, she told us reservations were inside. When we walked inside everything changed. Everyone was dressed very nicely. The food is expensive, but nothing I didn't expect from a nice restaurant.

“Pretty darn good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

It was really good food. The sea salt carmel custard was Phenomenal!!
The prices were a little high when compared to portion size, but they present them self as a higher end restaurant. My friend wore shirts & a superman shirt & i wore jeans and a tshirt. No dress code here, which i liked. Just a great all around atmosphere.

“Always Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This is a great restaurant. The food is always fit for foodies and the service is excellent. It is also one of the quietest restaurants around which makes it perfect for everything from a business meeting to a romantic dinner. The steaks are excellent and the fish is always cooked perfectly. Each dish has companion sides that blend well with the dish as a whole. This place is not as expensive as many others with inferior food. I am confident you will enjoy it. And it has space for larger groups as well.
