“A very nice Italian dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

We visited the restaurant on a nice summer day evening. We had our reservations done over the phone. Once we reached the restaurant, The staff welcomed us politely and seated us in the outside patio area over the lake.

The complimentary home made bread served was very delicious.The menu had good options for vegetarians too. We ordered Bruschetta, Mediterranean pizza, stuffed siclian pork. The portion's size were good for four of us.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any one looking for a nice evening dinner with family or friends.

“A pleasant experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

Ciao Bella is a decent Italian restaurant. Tucked away in a relatively new (and relatively empty) shopping plaza, it has a nice atmosphere -- a cut above fast-casual but not stuffy or formal. We enjoyed the food and had a nice experience.

“DELIZISO CIBO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

I had the pleasure of visiting Ciao Bella on numerous occasions each time leaving 100% satisfied. The patio during the summer over the water in is spectacular and the fireplace in the cold winter months is warm and inviting! The change of the menu for each season gives reason to be able to try yet another fresh creation by Chef Paul! The dessert menu is the best around and their in house pasty chef is certainly a prize catch! The management team and staff do a wonderful job and honor requests of guests to guarantee a pleasurable experience! Last but not least I encourage to give their Sunday brunch a try or one if their fabulous wine dinners you will be glad you did!

“Second visit to Ciao Bella”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

I took a friend to lunch at Ciao Bella. My friend described the bacon-wrapped dates and portabella ravioli as "wow" items. My margarita was great. The coffee was great. And, the service was great. Derek, the waiter, did an outstanding job.
