I truly enjoyed this restaurant with my family. Although the music from the outside is very loud and it is very hard to hold a conversation, when seated adjacent to the casino.

First thing I noticed was the beautiful decor and ambiance of the restaurant. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was delicious! We had a reservation and we were seated as soon as we walked in.

Finally able to have a date night with my husband and chose to eat at Ballo. We have stayed at Mohegan Sun many times and had never eaten there, so we decided to give it a try. Our waiter was very attentive at first. He even straightened my husband's placemat and refolded his napkin while he was in the restroom.... More

Great food, but mixed feeling about their target audience.... Allow me to explain: the place is white linen and all, the wine list is pure sophistication... in fact I have not had such a good glass of Cab in quite some time, and it was also served at perfect temperature. However, the food was more hearty than sophisticated and the... More

Happened upon this on Friday night waiting for my daughter who was in a concert. Wanted to sit for awhile and just relax. We could have stayed here all night. The food was unlike any we've ever had and our waiter - NICK - provided the best service we have ever had in a restaurant. So much so that we... More

Fantastic back room like the inside of an Italian estate or castle. Food was great, Best Arugala salad ever. Shrimp Scampi flavorable beyond expectations. Canoli's for dessert were house made. Good wine list. Waiter Nick was the best. Knocked off M. Jordan's as our favorite in casino.

I brought a business associate to Ballo. We ate at the bar and the place was very busy. Upon finishing I asked for the check, and presented my paper charge card that is given to every guest upon check in. I had used it for three other restaurants into stores without problem, but this particular bartender insisted I show an... More

We ate dinner at Ballo after Barrett Jackson. I ordered the chicken francaise with fingerling potatoes. It was good, but it lacked a lot of flavor. It comes with a grilled lemon, after I added lemon juice twice it added a little more flavor. The waiter was ok, not the most attentive. The bread was good and butter drizzled with... More

I am sure that this may be a great place to eat for some but for me, my pasta dish was dry and unappealing. It was much like warm up meal to me and 40 bucks with just water and no drink, it was way to pricey. I could not eat it. The ravioli dishes my friends ordered were small... 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."
