We ventured in for another visit on a Tuesday night. This restaurant is very busy starting at 5:45pm; make a reservation. The following entrees are very good. The large portion of the crab spaghetti is only as big as the small portion of the spaghetti and meatballs. SPAGHETTI AND BRAISED MEATBALLS - veal and Molinari sausage, Bolognese sauce SPICY CRAB...

... and it went like clockwork! These types of scenarios can be difficult when you have a vegetarian that no one knew was vegetarian and another guy with a lactose intolerance. The team at this restaurant just handled everything in its stride and nothing was too much trouble. In addition, my ribeye was just a perfect piece of meat that... More

Had a delightful lunch. Waitstaff was excellent. All the entrees were very good. One member of our party ordered from the gluten-free menu and was satisfied with her choice. Mini desserts lacked some flavor but the size was good.

After the USA won the Ryder Cup we decided that a nice dinner was in order. The restaurant was very nice with great service. The menu had some unique dishes. I had the spicy crab pasta that was recommended by our server. There was also a wide variety of deserts chose from. It was a very enjoyable dinner.

Had a great meal and cocktails at this very popular restaurant. Food was outstanding. Ambience was very comfortable. While very busy the noise level was below expectations for the amount of guests. Management made a significant recovery after a slight "hiccup" in service attention initially. Their efforts insured a great pleasurable evening.

Very good Italian Restaurant in Bloomington. Great atmosphere but loud. Service was second to none, ask for Brad, great server. We had the Walleye and the spicy sausage and peppers, all very good. I would go back any time.

Our party of eleven people were treated royally by the excellent staff at Ciao Bella. The food is absolutely delicious and the wine list is very good. Its true that the restaurant is a bit noisy, but its probably groups of people having a great time that makes it that way.

Love this place! Charming Italian bistro type restaurant. I was up in Blaine for a hockey showcase and ventured out towards the mall of America. Not a fan of chain restaurants and found this winner on trip advisor. Beautiful patio with outdoor seating and a bar. Priced accordingly for a nice meal and well worth it. I highly recommend. Oh...

I was here on a Saturday with some girlfriends for vino and a snack. The patio is beautiful if the weather is nice enough to sit outside. The bartender was great and provided samples of wine we were interested in - I ended up having a nice Italian red. We shared some appetizers, one was a shrimp dish and another... More
