Not far from MOA. Dinner reservations accepted. Excellent service, menu and price/value overall...including the cocktails and wine. Unfortunately, the Italian bread served was just terrible which accounts for the minus two rating. :-( The very first thing you get when you sit down at a first-rate, traditional Italian Restaurant is unbelievably good bread...and generally all that you want throughout the...

Met a friend for lunch. Kirsten was our wait person and she was the best server I have ever had. She explained the specials/substitutions/ and was extremely knowledgeable about the food/preparation/portion size etc.. The food was beautifully presented and delicious too. Worth every penny!

Expected to have a great food from the looking at the reviews but not great at all. From starter to main appetizer the food was cold and not cooked very well. If you are looking for a great Italian food I wouldn't recommend this place.

4 couples went to Ciao Bella this evening. The reservation was limited as one would expect for a excellent restaurant. We took a 5:00 reservation much earlier than we wanted but it turned out to be so worth going. We all well very pleased with our food selections. I had the butternut squash ravioli and it was so good I... More

On recent trip to Minneapolis, we stopped by our favorite restaurant, Ciao Bella. As always, we had great service and excellent food. The atmosphere is lively and fun. Love this place!

Excellent restaurant -- elegant setting, roomy tables, very good food and service. The only drawback was the noise -- I have been in quieter stadiums. Great if you don't want the next table to hear your conversation, challenging if you want to have a quiet discussion. But as long as you are prepared for the noisy atmosphere, you will get... More

I had a great time. My brother and I didn't have reservations so ended up sitting in a very noisy bar. Since noise there is to be expected, we put up with it and enjoyed the excellent food. I am not a drinker but my brother enjoyed his beers. I would rate this restaurant the best among those that I... More

We found this restaurant close to our hotel, but now that we have dined at Ciao we would drive a distance if necessary. The service was top notch and the in house made pasta was very good.

Was visiting Minneapolis for the Ryder Cup. Made a reservation through Open Table based on the reviews and the experience was as good if not better than advertised. Service was attentive, good wine selection and the food was delicious. Would definitely come here again if in the area.

Thank Michael B
