Very welcoming restaurant, great food with variety of selections. Great choice of appetizers and plenty of entrees for everyone. The Salmon was beautifully prepared and the Penne chicken bella hit the spot for some comfort pasta. Service is excellent and very friendly. I would recommend reservations as it is not a large space and they were quite full in the... More

Service was great! There was welcome champagne and the appetizer was good. We even received drinks before leaving the place. I really loved that pasta. It was perfect. However I didn't like their pizza. It was a bit too bland. I wish it was more flavorful. It was also too dark in the restaurant, making it difficult to take decent... More

Wonderful Italian food if you want to spend a bit more or have a nice night out. This is one of our go to date restaurants in HCMC. Make sure to look at the daily specials as there is usually something delicious available. I have never had a bad meal here.

Upon arrival, we were escorted upstairs to a table near the window. We were given free white wine and bread and left to review the menu. I ordered arancini and spaghetti alla carbonara. Unfortunately, both of my dishes were a bit underwhelming for me. As a person who frequently eats authentic Italian food, I felt that both were lacking in... More

We picked this place based on TripAdvisor reviews. We arrived to a complimentary proscecco which was really nice. We had calamari for starters and pizza for mains. The calamari was the nicest I had in South East Asia but not as good as home. The pizza was good but a little bland. We had a bottle of wine which was... More

Went here twice in October. 1st time better than second time. Had Gluten free pasta dish with a seafood sauce and a great chocolate dessert. 2nd time too humid and hot to stay so got dinner to go of a very tough brick chicken . For an Italian restaurant in Saigon it is good. It would not be considered good... More

What a fantastic place! We were greeted by the Italian owner. Were given complimentary fresh bread with white bean paste, fresh roasted garlic and blasamic all as dips, also a free glass of prosecco. Pizza and pasta was awesome and were given comps limoncello after the meal. Highly recomend this place. Great service and food and good prices and atmosphere.

Been working the whole day and it was quite tough. Wanted some comforting food and that's exactly what I got at Ciao Bella. The welcome with a Prosecco on the house followed by an old fashioned spaghetti meatball downed with some smooth red wine - divinely comforting. Happy ending. Ask for Simon and the experience gets better.

Thank BonVivant16
