The moment we were seated, we were happy. Christine was attentive, helpful,and fun. We arrived on a busy Saturday night, and were made to feel very welcome. Everyone was very happy with the food we had. Caesar salad, (with anchovies) pizza, meatballs and spaghetti, table side prepared Mac and cheese, and gemelli. We loved everything. Don't miss the donut holes,... More

We had 2 dinners here this summer. The waitstaff is knowledge about the menu. My only criticism is staff does not check back after meal is served to check all ok. The linguine scampi is delicious. The chicken Parm and swordfish are outstanding. The veal chop was good but not great. Too much oil and sauce on the plate. Will... More

I went with my son before a concert, so we were there very early. The lighting is a little too low which made it hard to read the menu. My son had the ravioli and said it was very good. He had a side of potatoes and enjoyed them too. I had the roasted chicken, but the side of Brussels... More

My husband and I stopped here for dinner taking a break from the tables. We sat at the bar for dinner. The wait staff is super, very pleasant and affable. I had the appetizer special which was prosciutto with melon. It was delicious in a fresh dressing with olive oil. The dinner special was lobster and shrimp in a spicy... More

My friend and I each had a drink here. I had the Ballo Limonata (vodka, San Pellegrino lemonade and an orange "sphere") and my friend had a glass of wine. Her wine was excellent and my drink was good, but a tad weak. The beautiful marble bar is massive, and we would have stayed for food and another round, but... More

We ate at Ballo at the recommendation of the front desk. Not sure what to expect at a casino...but were very pleasantly surprised. The food was perfectly prepared. We had the rice ball appetizer and it was delicious. Split the salads, they are very large. The chicken parm was also very large, but very good. The zuppa de pesce was... More

We recently dined at Ballo's - it was our first time there. We were seated promptly and had a choice of being in the front where everyone could see you or in the back which is more private. Our waiter was one of the best we've seen in a long time. He knew the menu and made recommendations. He was... More

I recently went to Mohegan Sun and made reservations at Ballo based on a friend's recommendation. We were seated promptly and although at first I was annoyed to sit in the far back corner, it turned out to be quite nice and away from all the noise on the main floor. Our waiter, Jonathan, immediately stood out as exceptional. It... More

Sitting nestled at a table inside a hedge from the walkway surrounding the gaming area let us people watch, hear the Wolf's Den band, but still enjoy intimacy of our dinner for two. The service was exceptional. The meals were delicious. I had an Italian Salad and a shrimp & scallop dish, both exceptional, my husband had a caesar salad... More

Description
Inspired by San Galgano in the hills of Tuscany, BALLO Italian Restaurant brings to life all the majesty of an Italian cathedral coupled with exceptional service and a fresh, authentic menu of Italian favorites. To start, guests will enjoy an extensive by-the-glass wine list and specialty BALLO cocktails while sitting in a stunning environment replete with arches, stone, sensual accents and multiple private spaces. The food at BALLO adds yet another level of celebration. Owner John Tunney is committed to fresh, locally grown produce and innovative Italian staples you can eat from Noon to Midnight, "I've always loved the idea of a pantry. A place where you are watching the freshest ingredients being prepared with the least amount of touch by the best pair of hands - and delivered in an open area as if you're in someone's kitchen."
