3.5 stars. The service and food was very good, but did not like the atmosphere and the restaurant is small. The tables are too close together!

I recently ate at Ballo when on business in Chicago. I do not know why people have given the food a low rating. My experience at Ballo was quite positive! We had the stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer, the eggplant salad, and the sausage ravioli. All dishes were huge and delicious! My favorite was the eggplant salad which I could not stop eating! It was a fabulous!
