I would give them zero stars if it was an option. Service was horrible and food wasn't any better than Olive Garden. I sat at the bar since I was by myself and didn't want to take a table. After a good five or so minutes of talking to a couple she obviously knew, the bartender asked "what do you... More

Been there before for lunch and that was good. I went for dinner tonight. Great atmosphere. There's even a TV in the restroom. Was seated promptly and service was outstanding. I ordered Ravioli toastini for an appetizer, romaine wedge salad, and the veal pizzaiolo for dinner. There is also a bar and a decent wine list. Overall a very nice... More

My wife and I have been dining at Ciao Bella for a number of years. Honestly, over that time we've seen the quality of their presentations vary, but only between average and very good. We just visited the restaurant for dinner and I had Veal Piccata and my wife had Chicken Piccata., including Italian spinach and angel hair pasta. It... More

My husband and come here about once every other month. It is always good. But tonight my husband had skipped lunch and was ravenous. We got in just before the dinner crowd. We sat at the bar and had the nicest bartender. She overheard him joking about how hungry he was and said she better go get him some bread... More

Food is very good and assorted, service is always over the top. But the biggest draw for us is its a very good restaurant with a great patio and always see friends. Kind do of like being at home.

We chose Ciao Bella because of it's high rating, and because the display picture had a quaint outside seating area. The food was delicious. I got the avgolemono soup, which is like a chicken noodle soup with orzo and a subtle lemon taste. It was wonderful. I also ordered the Greca salad which was also light and tasty. However, my...

I'll never forgive that our server was rude to an elderly person in our group. Please retrain your staff.

This restaurant is one of the go-to locations for a dinner group we enjoy. Whether we have 6-8 show up, or the full complement of 19, Ciao Bella always accommodates us with a comfortable seating arrangement. It's really hard for me to pass up the beef brisket gnocchi - it is sooooo good - but I try to mix it... More

Well, we are in America and therefore, anything goes ... but in Europe? No way! The Greek cuisine is a bad copycat of the excellent Turkish one, and the Italian? Real Italian cuisine is the best you can find on this globe! The result of this almost necessarily unhappy marriage at the "Ciao Bella" is mediocre at best. The Spaghetti... More
