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.

Friendly and welcoming with a glass of presecco. Bread to die for with dips followed by tiramisu all on the house. Yes we paid for the house special pizza and the beers! Busy restaurant with time for a chat. The owners parents used to live near us in the U.K.!

The space is quite cramped but has a nice feel to it. I just wish they didn't say "authentic Italian" as it certainly isn't. I'm not saying it's bad, it's just the same quality as... More

You’re welcomed with a glass of prosecco, which sets the tone, and you leave with a limoncello, both on the house. Ciao Bella is famous for the spectacular preparation of pasta carbonara, by your table and directly inside a piece of Italian cheese. On our visit, our party of four shared a “burrata caprese” (expensive at VND385,000 but amazing), linguine... More

Had better pasta here than in italy, the staff was also very helpful and friendly. I thought I shouldnt eat western foods in Vietnam but clearly I was wrong. Would definately recommend eating here if creamy pasta is what you crave.

The pasta was too delicious and the serving styles too. The place is small but the service is extremely big. The servers pay attention on thier customers. The manager is very concerned to his guests. The welcome wine is one of the good thing to create impression and show you are respecting the customers. The price is very standard. I... More

This place is excellent, you have to eat here! The gamberreti pizza was amazing and the Nutella creme brulee is a must try. Very relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.
