Great foods, good service, great staff, good prices Honestly what can we ask more ? I personally had Poshed Carbornara for lunch. Was simply so yummy that the plate almost looked as it was unused. The family got the 3 courses set menu with a Caesar salad with a dressing to die for. The chicken forestiera was succulent ! All... More

Warm atmosphere with quaint casual decor. Friendly manager and the staff could learn a lot from him.

Located in the heart of District 1, Ciao Bella delighted our tastebuds with complimentary wine, bread with assorted dips and shots. The posh carbonara was delicious with a strong cheese flavour, whilst my partners steak was cooked perfectly and tasty. The service was responsive and friendly, with a good command of English. If you want a break from Vietnamese cuisine,... More

We had a table of five for our special date and we did feel completely satisfy with what the restaurant offer: authentic Italian dishes, large portion, great atmosphere, well-trained staff. I highly recommend choosing "plat du jour" on the blackboard. Those choices are great. But we had to wait too long for the bill. Luckily, the other things helps this... More

We (3 people) enjoyed an evening at Ciao Bella with their Italian menu. It is a small restaurant with a welcoming feel. Once we were seated we were welcomed with a complimentary drink, menus and then a generous platter arrived with dip and toasted bread. My friend ordered a Chicken dish from the specials menu which we both really enjoyed.... More

We tried to make it to try Ciao Bella, however we missed it the last trip we were in HCM and decided to come back again. Food is great, service is fabulous, ambience is lovely along the busy street in HCM.

Some say this is the best Italian restaurant in Saigon. Well, it depends on what you expect from it. If you feel like enjoying casual Italian food and not the rustic, more "authentic" type (I don't even know what authentic means anymore), this is the place to go. Our meal started with warm, slightly charred toasts and dips, accompanied by... More

Perhaps my favorite restaurant in HCM- consistently great food, service and experience. The pasta is all handmade, and the ingredients fresh. The nice cherry on top is the great house red wine. The Chicken parm and lasagna are my favorite.
