A word from Ballo Italian Restaurant and Social Club
BALLO Italian Restaurant promises an Italian experience with intense design combinations, exceptional service and a fresh, authentic menu of Italian favorites and new creations. BALLO, which means dance in Italian, will also be home to one of the most innovative late-night concepts. BALLO at Mohegan Sun was inspired by San Galgano - a Gothic abbey built in the 12th century, located in the hills of Tuscany.

Once in the high-impact, high-energy abbey, guests can enjoy a massive by-the-glass wine list, specialty BALLO cocktails and freshly prepared Italian fare from the open pantry while sitting in a cathedral-like room replete with Italian fixtures, fabrics and dramatic lighting. Move further into BALLO and visitors can sit at one of the largest carrera marble bars ever built or have dinner in the main dining area. Arches, stone, sensual draperies and bold materials will accent this exuberant dining experience. But the food at BALLO is the real celebration!

  • "Celebrating our anniversary, we had to be here...Simply put it was a great night. From the moment we walked in until the moment the night was over we had a great experience. On a packed night it felt like it was just a my wife and I, the service and food were that good. Adam really took care of us tonight with a meal that was paced to perfection. The evening began with melon and prosciutto which was out of this world. Then onto fried calamari served piping hot and crispy. Dinner tonight was chicken parmigiana and ricotta gnocchi both to die for. The entire evening was tied together when Adam brought over some of the best gelato and cannolis you will ever have. What a special night with the women of my dreams, thanks Adam and Ballos"

We were extremely pleased to note this trip that they changed their menu - the selections added were great. I highly recommend this restaurant - you will not be disappointed."

  • "Dining at the casino has been a hit or miss for me and mostly a miss. This was the first time I visited Ballo and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the meal and the service. I ordered the Chicken Francese and it was prepared well and tasted really very good. There was a wide variety of Italian wines to choose from. The bread was yummy. Best of all the bartender made a fantastic Negroni just the way I asked and knew enough to make it with a quality gin. It will be my goto place at the Mohegan Sun."

  • "Ballo was recommended to us by friends for our anniversary. It was wonderful and the "surprise" anniversary of sparkling wine and delicious Italian pastry was the best part. Thank you Ballo for making our special day even more special."

  • "We usually go early for dinner and miss the action later. The food and service are great. The bar area is huge and inviting. I could imagine that the late night crowd has a great time here. The drink specials on the menu are not as good as they sound but, the food more than makes up for it. They have two things going for them; a great restaurant and a great bar. If I could only stay up later."

  • "We enjoyed a number of appetizers as our main meal and found the variety and quality to be outstanding! It was a light refreshing meal with out feeling overstuffed."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The appetizers were fabulous. Would like more dinner options, but everything was very good. They offer a table side macaroni and cheese but is not offered on the menu. First time I dined there, I found out about it as it was being prepared at another table and asked our waiter."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Ballo is the best restaurant in the area. We love the family style apps and a special secret not on the menu is the pasta cooked tableside. The best Mac and cheese I ever had! And let me just say the steak is amazing. Love everything about this place. Even got a box of complementary canolis for a birthday!! Love it"

  • "Went to Ballo at Mohegan Sun with a group of 8. Service was very good. Appetizers were also tasty but the main dishes ,I had veal Marsala and my husband had chicken parm, were bland and tasteless . The marinara on the pasta was also bland . I did not enjoy it at all"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "We met our friends there for dinner and the four of us each had different meals and each was outstanding. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the entrees and a real help in making dinner selections right down to dessert. We got to sit and enjoy our conversation ( hear each other) and our meals. This is the best restaurant at Mohegan Sun."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Ballo is such a hidden gem within Mohegan Sun. I feel like every time I go there are slim to no customers, and I kind of like it that way: all to myself! Sundays they have a great deal: 50% off wines priced over 100 bucks. The Gaia & Rey Langhe chardonnay ($330) is amazing! Had the shrimp special served over black pasta that was delicious, the boy had the pizza (all of them are fantastic and very authentic Italian!) Oh yea, and all of their apps are delicious, I recommend sharing them, they are very healthy portions! Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Interesting, creative menu. Wonderful, personalized service. Expansive, old world decor. Espresso martini was a pleasant surprise. Variety from casual to elegant, from individual pizzas, to salad and pasta, to high end entrees and specials. A nice dining option at the casino. Pricey but worth it."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Server was very nice. Food was below par. Server told us since most of the dishes where house made, they cold do anything. Not true, tried to substitute a potato for a pasta side, $3 up charge! Had chicken franchise, no flavor."

  • "We had a party of 7 and had our own special room which was perfect since it was for a bachelorette. The food was outstanding! I highly recommend arrancini! The waiter even brought us a complimentary appetizer! Wine list was notable.Atmossphere gorgeous! Waiters were attentive and so nice! Its our favorite place in the casino!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The sauce was too sour/meatballs too over seasoned/polenta was bland and stiff. It was a big disappointment. My husband had veal parm and mentioned it was nothing to rave about. We both had been there before and it was pretty good, and because it was our anniversary and we were going to see lionel ritchie we thought it was to be a great night....NOT!"

  • "My husband took me to Ballo for my birthday dinner. We were not sure what to expect because we had dined there previously before the renovation and were not thrilled by our last experience. Well, we were very impressed, to say the least. Our server, Steve G. was fabulous. His smile and professional attitude made for such an enjoyable experience. The food was excellent, and everything was timed perfectly. We never had to wait for long periods of time for someone to come back to us. Your whole staff was extremely pleasant. And I am not sure how they knew it was my birthday, but the "surprise" cannoli's made my night even more special. , it was and excellent dinner...compliments to the chef and staff."
