It's been a few years since I've been to Mohegan Sun but after the meal we had we will be back soon! We had probably the best waitress ever (thank you Rachel) and we will definitely ask for her next time as well. She was so knowledgeable about the menu but even more so about the wine! Perfect selection by... More

Tasty Italian set along the casino walkway, which is great for people watching, but if you are bothered by noise, you should ask for a table in the back, closer to the bar. We have been to this restaurant twice. On our most recent visit, we ordered from the menu and from the specials. Neither disappointed. As a matter of... More

One of the best restaurants at Mohegan Sun. The menu isn't too overwhelming and the food is well prepared. The meatballs are really delicious and not stingy as an appetizer, you get three large meatballs in sauce. Our table shared the meatballs, roasted beets, arugula salad as apps. Dinners included the organic salmon, eggplant parm, seafood and pasta. Nobody complained!... More

I read reviews before our group dinner (closed to general public) and at first was concerned since we were not sitting down and ordering from the menu. But the appetizers were excellent, including shrimp, scallops, bruschetta, etc. and their famous brick oven wood-fired baked pizza. The buffet type dinner included prime rib, a scallop and rice dish, pasta, and a... More

My boyfriend and I tried this restaurant for his birthday dinner after reading all the great reviews about it however, our experience was far from great. I even created this TripAdvisor account just to be able to review our experience. We had a reservation for 6:15 as we were going to see the Kevin Hart show at 8 pm. 2... More

We had the good fortune to get a recommendation from a bar tender at Mohegan Sun Casino to try Ballo. Great call! The service from Lisa was exceptional and the overall experience was great. We started with some calamari and crispy pork belly..awesome. I had the chicken parm as did one of my companions. It was great. A huge piece... More

Wonderful pasta and superb service! The only negative was noise level. We dined here for our first night out without the kids in quite awhile. The bar area was great too! We had a cocktail before dinner and an appetizer, but could not tune out noise from casino area. I know there is nothing they can do about that since... More

Definitely would recommend. Our server was exceptional and really made our experience. Loved the Italian cookies for dessert and cannolis. Pizza was great, as was pasta and scallops, etc.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor we wanted to enjoy this restaurant. If I say bad food, it would be a compliment. The calamari was not properly prepared. We ordered the assaggi, so spicy -- what a disappointment. But the WORST was the Pizza, it was the worst pizza we have ever eaten in our life, I should have... More

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."
