This tiny place is a treasure in the Worcester area. Always a great food experience. Service is quick from the open kitchen. This is not a place for atmosphere just for great homemade Italian. We love the antipasto with fantastic balsamic dressing and very crunchy croutons. Hot marinara and focaccia bread is a nice touch. We usually get chicken carciofi... More

This is our go-to spot for pizza in Worcester. We've tried many places and Ciao Bella is the best for your traditional, non-thin crust pizza. My sister really enjoys their salads. And, the main entrees are tasty too. You will get a good meal for a good price.

I've had Ciao Bella twice in the past week. Their Italian grinders are enormous! The veggies are crisp and the bread is crusty to perfection. I had dinner and leftovers for lunch (score!). The waitstaff is extremely friendly. A few days later, I ordered takeout for a few guests and myself. We live on the other side of town and... More

This little spot never disappoints. The portions are huge and value large. The restaurant does a big take out business and there are only 8 tables or so inside. They do have quick, friendly table service available. If you are into food not atmosphere there is a lot to love here. A warm open kitchen almost makes you feel like... More

We were working in Worcester and my co-worker said that this was a great place when he had visited many years ago. We had lunch and can concur it is still a great place in Worcester. I had the Myles' Roast Beef Panini and it did not disappoint. There are a limited number of tables so be prepared if you... More

Amazingly good food. Fast service, simple, nice attitude. Had dinner here with my college age son and we both loved the food. Big portions too. Not many tables but busy place with take out. Will certainly be back.

Huge portions of delicious homemade fresh italian/greek food. It's always busy so be prepared to wait sometimes. Very small dining area so large groups are difficult to fit. Could eat there every week.

I ordered from this place twice. It took an hour for the first time. The second time it took one hour and a half. The place is only 7mins away. It would be sooner if I go to the grocery store and make the pasta myself.
