Took our family and thought it was good, our fifth visit, but far from outstanding. The chicken part lacks authenticity and the bone in strip was average at best. I love the bar and will go again but really felt this trip was not good.

i last reviewed this restaurant in 12/14. I have eaten here many times since it opened. Many changes have happened in the period including the doubling of the space and personnel changes. The one thing that has not changed is the menu and the specials often seem to be the same. In order to enhance the specials they might consider... More

Had lunch at Ciao Bella, the food was wonderful and the service even better. I had a steak panini and my friend had the veal Marsala, both done to perfection and served hot and delicious.

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...
