Description: Inspired by San Galgano in the hills of Tuscany, BALLO Italian Restaurant brings to life all the majesty of an Italian cathedral coupled with exceptional service and a fresh, authentic menu of Italian favorites. To start, guests will enjoy an extensive by-the-glass wine list and specialty BALLO cocktails while sitting in a stunning environment replete with arches, stone, sensual accents and multiple private spaces. The food at BALLO adds yet another level of celebration. Owner John Tunney is committed to fresh, locally grown produce and innovative Italian staples you can eat from Noon to Midnight, "I've always loved the idea of a pantry. A place where you are watching the freshest ingredients being prepared with the least amount of touch by the best pair of hands - and delivered in an open area as if you're in someone's kitchen."

“We Eat at the Bar”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

This is our favorite place to go at Mohegan Sun. Each time we sit at the bar and enjoy our drinks with a great bar staff. Places are set nicely at the bar and the staff seem happy to serve us. Try a thin crust pizza....absolutely perfect crust! We are never rushed and enjoy going back time after time. Alas, I wish the slot machines were as friendly as Ballo's staff!

“Nice Italian Meal at Mohegan Sun”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Eating among the Gothic arches, you feel transported to some old place in Italy...amazing what they can do with some of these decorations! Great service, and delicious eggplant and veal parmigiano! We started with a very nice burrata with tasty tomatoes. For dessert, the white chocolate tipped canolli were terrific! The cuisine most definitely exceeded our expectations, being from New Jersey and its pervasive Italian cuisine choices. We also preferred Ballo over Tuscany, having dined in both places this trip. Dinner and late night only though. Haute cuisine? No. Really good Italian food? Si. Pushed it to a "5" from a "4" based on relativity to Tuscany and most importantly, the terrific knowledgeable and amicable service by our waiter, Adam.

If your at Mohegan, spend the little extra, it's worth it. I had the special , lobster and shrimp over homemade pasta. It was fabulous! My aunt had the Chicken Francese it also was great!

“Ballo has the right combination of ambiance and exceptional food and service”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

We have been to Ballo several times but our most recent experience was the best. The place itself has the old world ambiance and is very warm and inviting. My meal, from appetizer to dessert was perfect. My companion was not pleased with his entree, but felt it might have been just his own preference regarding preparation. However, the waitstaff was attentive enough to inquire as to why he wasn't finishing his meal. When the waitstaff heard, he immediately sought out the manager, who came to our table and was unbelievably accommodating and continued to check on us throughout the night. For me, this insured yet another visit. The care and attention to detail, and the desire for perfection was obvious and sincere. We both spoke to the manager about our previous wonderful experiences and are equally sincere when we say we will definitely return.

“Second time was not a charm”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

This was my second time eating at Ballo before a concert at the casino arena. The first time was a great dinner. This time the food was overcooked and the wines by the glass were very mediocre and had just been opened. It was disappointing as we enjoyed it so much the last time. At the prices charged it is unlikely I would go again unfortunately.
