We recently went to Ciao Bella with 2 other couples after playing golf. We elected to eat out doors on their small but intimate outdoor patio. The food was very good and our server was very at tentative to our needs. This was not our first visit. In previous times there, we have dined inside and although the food has... More

Saw this place listed in the list of restaurants in our hotel room. So we gave it a shot for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. Good food and wines (and some craft beers). Priced accordingly for the type of place it is-- nice ambience, a nice meal prepared well -- so a little pricier. Waiter and staff friendly. If you... More

Delicious food! Nice atmosphere. Nice staff. Kind of pricey, but well worth it! I suggest the delicious salmon! And if you're used to Italian style pasta, I would skip the pasta. Their sauce has a unique flavor to it that I don't care for. But everything else I have ever gotten there is delicious!

Stopped here several times for apps and drinks. Food was above average but drinks were not up to par with the food and ambiance. Reputation is high but staff and food not fabulous.

Delicious dinner, not economy run for dinner. All al carte! Salads extra. Very busy and popular ! Tight seating. A quiet romantic night no! A metro experience yes! They do some special pizzas and salads as well! Off the charts appetizers!

I consider myself lucky to have an Italian restaurant of this quality so close to home. What a charming, wonderful place! Upon entering, you are greeted with a smile by their always friendly hostess, and if its busy and you have to wait, don't worry, the beautiful bar is only a couple steps away and is a fantastic place to...

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
