I stopped the other night because the other choices on the way to the interstate are fast food restaurants. The people were friendly but the Mexican food was ok. The beans really weren’t it was just the juice that was thickened with some cheese in...More

This place has amazing pizza! The crust, sauce, cheese, everything is just perfection. This has been our family's go-to pizza spot for well over a year. Give it a try!!

Food was good, no ABC. It wasn’t bad just wasn’t great. I think if they stick to just Mexican food it could be better.

This restaurant seems to be on a couple of ends of the food spectrum. We had a bit of Mexican and a bit of Italian. We liked the Stromboli. The service was attentive and friendly. They didn’t have their ABC license yet, so no beer....More

The pasta sauce was like canned spaghetti. The Mexican food was subpar quality. The meats were dry. The beans wete runny. The service was okayish, but the locationis good.

We stopped here on a Saturday night, and thought they were closed because parking lot was empty. But we went in and were only ones there. I thought, "This isn't good". But we stayed to try it out. Server (Hugo) was very nice throughout. Wife...More

We love Ballalva's! It is a welcome addition to the restaurant options in Toano--our favorite restaurant in the area hands down! It is a locally owned restaurant with many food options--both authentic Mexican and Italian food and very reasonable pricing. It is a great restaurant...More
