Ciao Bella Ratings and Reviews
While we really loved most of our meal, we felt the fish (walleye) was a bit dry and perhaps that is because we usually have broiled. We would make another choice the second time around. The Caesar salad was great as were the hot slices of bread. The mashed potatoes and tomatoes were delicious as well. We each had a dessert of caramel cake and chocolate cake which arrived in these cute little cups that were quite rich and filling. Just perfect!
Special shout out to SAM, our waitress. She was right on the spot, perhaps more than she needed to be. Sam is very efficient and informative concerning the menu. She took good care of us!
Ciao Bella never disappoints! Fantastic Italian food, with menu options ranging from pasta to seafood to burgers to steaks and chops....everything I've ever had here is amazing. Pair that with a great wine list and it's a wonderful place to take a date or a tourist, as well as to go for a meal with local friends and family. Service is top notch!
Absolutely amazing, the best experience I've had by far. Outstanding service, over the top friendliness! Ciao Bella is an experience I will never forget, wish I remembered our server's name, but she was absolutely amazing. A special day for me for my 21st birthday and Ciao Bella made it unforgettable. Will definitely be coming back to this wonderful place!
Like Ciao Bella for business if you can get a table off the main dining room. Quieter there. But given the prices, not the best value -- particularly if you don't order the pasta, which they are known for. Salad entree was a bit soggy and they did not cook the fish per my request. Hate to give this review as the server was outstanding and did everything right.
Have not been to Ciao Bella for a while and it was great to meet a friend for dinner. The wine list is excellent and we both had a Salmon special that was fabulous. Our server was very attentive and the evening was great. I will put Ciao Bella on my list to go more often.
GREAT WAIT PERSON - ZACH
WAY TOO NOISY
FRONT ENTRY WAS VERY GRITTY AND DUSTY.
NO SPECIAL TOUCHES, SUCH AS NICE FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS,
GIRLS AT FRONT WERE SUPER NICE.
LINENS WERE CLEAN AND FRESH.
WHOLE PLACE NEEDED A GOOD CLEANING AND FRESHENING UP. IT COULD BE SO MUCH CLASSIER WITH SOME HELP.
TOO PRICEY FOR THE ATMOSPHERE.
SALAD WAS BLAH, PASTA WAS OKAY.
NO IMPROVEMENT IN THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS.
Excellent waiter and overall good experience. The food was very good. The bread was crispy and piping hot. Both entrees were delicious. The cappuccino was lovely as was the biscotto that came with it.
A very good experience. I recommend going to dinner early since the restaurant can get quite noisy when crowded. We were on our way to a theater event so dined earl
