We were in Bloomington for a conference and Ciao Bella was recommended by a friend so we joined her for a delicious meal there. Food was very good and waitstaff attentive. We enjoyed several appertizers including the parmesan crusted shrimp that were done perfectly. They had a halibut special on the menu that both my husband and I ordered and... More

I had lunch at Ciao Bella with my sister and parents. The patio was an oasis of shade and flowers. Between us we ordered a salad, pasta, and a sandwich. All were fantastic. My parents were sharing a club sandwich and the kitchen split their sandwich and fries onto two plates free of charge. I must say it was the... More

I've been waiting for months to use our wedding gift card to Ciao Bella so I was pretty excited to go there and pretty disappointed when we left. We went early evening on a Saturday night, 7/16. Seated indoors near a window. A female wait staff person came and closed the shade due to someone who complained about it being... More

Ciao Bella is simply amazing. The location is great if you are around the Edina / Bloomington area. A great spot for a business lunch as well as a romantic dinner! The wine selection is outstanding and they consistently provide outstanding service as well. If you are looking for a great restaurant in the suburbs this is your spot! The... More

Lovely Italian restaurant! What makes it special for us is its outdoor seating and deserts! OH MAN! The patio is like sitting in a garden complete with a pergola covered in vines, plenty of umbrellas to shade the heat of the day with a feeling there is no need to rush. The ice tea/water is plentiful and the wait staff... More

I have ben to Ciao Bella number of times, and tend to be drawn back there, because they have good food, and an outdoor patio with nice flowers in the summer, and a small outdoor bar. The inside seating and bar scene is friendly and the food quite tasty. You won't ever be disappointed going here as they know how... More

This is a fabulous restaurant - especially if you are dining out with someone who is important to you. My experiences there are mostly over lunch but I've also taken my bride of 58 years there for dinner. Rest assured that everything on the menu is delightful!

We were looking for a non-chain restaurant in the area and we're very glad we tried Ciao Bella. It's "classy" , but very casual and friendly. Every employee we encountered seemed genuinely friendly. Our server, Scotty, was great. We had the two specials - one salmon the other a halibut - both were superb. If you are considering desert -... More
