I have traveled and eaten in various Italian cities so I am very fussy and reluctant to give a five star rating to an Italian restaurant in the states. First of all Bella was very accommodating with our large family gathering. The service was first rate, I'm pretty sure that my water glass barely went down two inches before a... More

We went here for a birthday. Food was fabulous. We had a great server. The only thing is it's quite expensive. We all had different items, salmon, filets, and boneless shortribs, pasta with scallops. All delicious.

I took my wife out for an early Valentine's day dinner as she would be traveling on business Valentine's day week. It was our first visit for dinner at Ciao Bella and we will be back. We both had the specials of the day. I had almond encrusted salmon and she had the sea bass. Both were delightful. We also... More

We had dinner here with a large group (14 cousins). The restaurant was very accommodating as our headcount kept changing (growing) throughout the day. Great service was provided by Seth! I had one of the specials of the night, sea bass in herbs & it was one of the best meals I've ever had ... gave a bite to my... More

Quite a big restaurant, but maintains very high standards of food and highly professional service. Lively ambiance. Great venue for a celebration.

Although the portion sizes are small, the food is prepared with fresh, seasonal, local and organic ingredients and was delicious. For lunch I ordered the red pepper linguini with scallops and topped with goat cheese. It was all cooked and served to perfection. And even if you don't go for dining, just go and sip a glass of wine and... More

I will pay these kind of money in Ciao Bella although I do not like to pay much for Italian food. Very good atmosphere. Great service! Very consistent. I tried pretty much everything in menu including appetizers and deserts. It is definitely not Italian food that you try in Italy and more like modern American twist on Italian food. It... More

My friend and I both had the Walleye sandwich as the main course for lunch and it was exceptional. In addition, our waiter was excellent during our meal and in fact was able to recommend destinations to visit as we were going to travel to the Excel Center for the evening.
