Came here because they advertise a large selection of Gluten free items. Regretfully they didn't offer a GF pizza crust. They should change that right now. We had salads that were fresh field greens with tomatoes, cucumber and olives. They were topped with perfectly cooked grilled chicken. Good portions with delicious thick basalmic dressing. The soups were minestrone and delightful.... More

This restaurant is a casual style Italian eatery. It has a nice atmosphere inside with pleasant service. The food however is just ok. The bread is a little dense but tasty enough. The calamari was fresh and lightly breaded. A good start. The entrees however fell a bit short. The mushroom risotto was overly dense and heavy. The pasta was... More

We stopped by for a Father's Day dinner unexpectedly. Having been here many many times I realized I have never left a review. Today we tried an appetizer we never had before -- Burrata -- soft gooey mozzarella cheese served with roasted cherry tomatoes & arugula with slices of softly toasted garlic bread sprinkled with a wonderful balsamic vinegar. There... More

First, please tell me why a server arrives to greet you at your table and does NOT say "Hi, I am so and so, and I will be your server tonight." When I asked him his name, he was annoyed he had to tell me. Okaaaaay. No personality and this does affect your visit as a whole. Dishes were ok.... More

We frequently enjoy Ciao Bella . There are only a few restaurants in the NWI area that are in what I consider Chicago caliber restaurants and this one is easily at or near the top. Cocktail hour is fun and the food is always consistently delicious . Reminds me of my days in Old Town. The staff is always friendly... More

Came in to place a "togo" order. Sampled a few dishes. All of them were very flavorful and plenty to share. Fettuccine, Gnochhi and a Pasta Vegetable dish. They all had their own unique flavor. Butter Alfreda sauce was made to perfection! Red Sauce on the Gnochhi was delicious. Side of homemade bread with Parm/seasoning and EVOO was enough to... More

Took the family here for dinner and a couple drinks. The service was great as was the food. My wife had fish and she loved it. I had steak and it was very good. The patrons are a little loud but seem very nice. The service was exceptional! We will return!

I love coming to this restaurant, Italian, for the food, service and atmosphere. It must be very popular because they have enlarged it once and appear to be doing so again.

If you're looking for run of the mill Italian, don't go here, it is very authentic Italian cuisine and very nice people.
