I loved the Grilled Organic Salmon salad, and the Heirloom Grain was very flavorful and healthy! They also offer an excellent wine list! Looking forward to trying something else next time!

I took my wife here for her birthday, I was a little apprehensive because we had never been here before and had never really even heard of it, but I wanted it to be very special and this place had wonderful reviews. Italian is her absolute favorite. We had a fairly early reservation, so when we got there it was... More

About every 3 mos. I meet the same old friend to have lunch here. We always sit at the same table & have the same server. They treat us like royalty. Atmosphere is wonderful.

I highly recommend the seafood linguine - I get it every time I go there! The food is little on the pricey side, but oh so worth it! Ambiance is lovely, and the staff is always very friendly and professional.

This was our fourth visit, most were during the summer, this was our first winter visit. Don't bother using the 'open table' reservation system- it's inaccurate, just call the restaurant or show up- it's a large venue with lots of tables, there are more available in the summer with the patio. The staff is incredible and efficient. It's a small... More

Although pricey, this is definitely a special occasion destination. We went on a busy Saturday night and the service was superb! The Heirloom salad is a favorite, but every salad that our table ordered deserved rave reviews. The scallop pasta dish is my personal favorite, although both the shrimp pasta and spicy crab pasta were tasty, though void of the... More

We just had the most delightful dinner at Caio Bella. The décor and interior design make this fancy restaurant feel so cozy. The food was fantastic- beef tenderloin crostini had super flavor and the steak was done perfectly, caio baby salad has great flavor, cacio e pepe had a delicious rich flavor for such a simple dish. However, the best... More

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...
