Unbelievable Italian restaurant, nice touch with the free glass of sparkling on arrival and the dips for the bread. You have to try the balsamic dip, my wife really enjoyed that one! Real New York feel to the place in central Vietnam. Some of the best pasta I've ever had for dinner and I'm 35 years old, so have eaten some pasta in my time.

My wife was really pleased with her food that we will likely go back again before we head home to singapore.

Good wine selection too. What are you waiting for?!

Needing a comfort breakfast at good prices, eggs, porridge/oatmeal, etc? Well this is the place.
Courteous, friendly and attentive staff, good breakfast menu, and a willingness to adapt the menu made us extremely comfortable.
Ate their four mornings of our visit, and made a food balance to the Vietnamese food eaten each lunch and evening.

I like many others visited Ciao Bella after reading the many reviews. My wife and I booked the restaurant the previous day so not too be disappointed. We were met and recognised by the staff member who made our booking. We received the complimentary sparkling drink. The food was simply delicious sharing an entrée and having a main each. I had char grilled seafood and would say it would just about be the best meal I have experienced in a restaurant. My wife had a fettuccini dish which was prepared alongside our table in spectacular fashion. We enjoyed a litre of wine off the menu and received the complimentary drink to finish. The place was full, service was outstanding,our only regret was we didn't have time to return there due to being in HCM for a short time.($40 US cost)

Wanting a change from the usual Pho and spring rolls we thought we'd go with a little bit of Italian and try this little place. It wasn't far from our hotel which suited us well and we took a chance on trying it without making reservations. We got lucky with a table at the front door which made for great people watching.

Greeted with two glasses of champagne and bread'n'dips we were off to a great start. Lots of options on the menu to suit most tastes.

Our meal was fantastic and the owner came and chatted to us about the restaurant and people.

If you're going during peak dinner time I would recommend making a reservation. Especially if you're more than two people.

This place was a great change of food. Loved it.
