It is a small but nice restaurant. The best thing here is the staff, they are very friendly and nice. Food is good. I like the jasmine bracelet the staff give us when we finish our dinner. Worth a try!

In this area with 5 minutes walk must be 6 or 7 good Italian style restaurants. I have been to them all and this is the worst for food quality. Food is okay but just average. Lamb was overcooked and sub-sequentially dry. Carbonara was a good portion but quite bland The restaurant is over 3 or 4 floors. We sat... More

I went there for lunch and had Carbonara and pizza. It was delicious. I really love it and will visit again when I come back to Ho Chi Minh. :)

During a long trip away from home, find restaurants like this that makes feel you like at home is very nice. But please, remove garlic from your carbonara recipe!!!

Food was average at best, some starters were way too big and mains too dry or cooked poorly. The steak was fantastic but wasn't actually as ordered. However, the staff were fantastic and dealt with all issues quickly and with a smile. It was honestly a shame the food didn't live up to the front of house

we were reluctant to eat anything other than Vietnamese food while we were in Vietnam, but on our last night our 15 year old demanded pasta. We agreed and went to Ciao Bella. Delicious. Fabulous hospitality and while it wasnt as cheap as what we had been spending on our meals it was worth it. The lemoncello to finish is... More

Sorry for the long review. Ok, the positives. The very friendly and professional front of house staff and management. Top notch. The menu looks exciting and different. This was exactly what we wanted after 3 weeks in Cambodia and Vietnam. Welcomed with a glass of Proseco a nice touch in wine starved Vietnam. I was there with my family, including... More

A couple of minutes away from our hotel, we used Ciao Bella twice as having eaten almost exclusively Vietnamese food thus far on our trip. We really felt the urge for pasta! I had spaghetti with meat balls and my husband had carbonara on both nights. We were given a welcome glass of Prosecco and a night-cap of Lemincello at... More
