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!

  • "Great service.excellent food. Attentive staff. Reasonable pricing for fine dining. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "My husband and I were at Mohegan Sun over the weekend and it happened to coincide with his birthday. I spent some time on yelp looking for the best restaraunt at Mohegan to take him to dinner. Ballo was perfect! The food was delicious and the bartender, Jen and waiter, Steve couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Our entire experience was fantastic. Come hungry the portions are large."

  • "We ordered beets vinaigrette for appetizer, grilled asparagus, raviolis and the skirt steak. The beets were delicious, the asparagus too. The ravioli had mascarpone cheese in them which I had never heard of but the sauce and ravioli were delicious. The steak was very, very tough. My husband does not like to complain so I did. I usually do not eat meat but took a bite of his after he cut (finally) a piece of the meat for me. I think I must of chewed it at least 50 times before I swallowed it, that is how tough it was. The dinner was taken off the menu and we were also given dessert and coffee for free. They definitely did the right thing and I congratulate them for it. I will go back."

  • "Outstanding food. Exceptional service. Beautiful atmosphere. What more could you ask for! The poached lobster with muschroom risotto is to die for!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Needed to dine early as restaurant as booked due to Cher concert. We were fortunate enough to get a quiet back room, away from the busy front area. Food was very good. Other tables received a complementary appetizer that we did not. Waiter was attentive but forgetful. We asked for more bread - he took the basket away but never brought anymore until we asked again. He took our silverware after appetizers saying he would bring fresh for dinner but our dinners arrived and we had no silverware for a while until someone came back. My swordfish dinner was hot and very tasteful, my husband's steak was not hot. Overall a good experience, price very reasonable, menu varied and I would return."

    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The menu is very Tuscany Italian. We have been there and all agree that the food at Ballo is comparable to the food we ate in Italy. We have been to Ballo several times and have not been disappointed with any item we have ordered. The service is top notch and the kitchen will accommodated any modifying requests. We highly recommend Ballo even when you are not gambling- it is a restaurant destination that should not be missed."

Started with one of the flatbread pizzas ALL OF WHICH ARE GREAT thin crispy crust always great. We both had chicken ptarmigan tonight with past on the side. Finished with the cannolis. It was a great night thanks."

  • "We've been wanting to try this Restaurant since it opened and havent been able to make it. The food was EXCELLENT all around! The Limon Blood Orange house Martini is SUPER refreshing, and packs a punch! HIGHLY recommended! Service was great! My only complaint didnt effect me at all, but my reservation was for 6:30, as we were waiting to be seated, no less than 15 parties came in without reservations, the host staff told every one of them that no tables were available until 8:30 the earliest. by 7:30 PM, there was no less than 5 empty tables surrounding us that remained empty for extended periods. So again, this didnt effect me, we were seated promptly, but this place is just throwing money away with because of their host staff."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Service was great. Food was good but bland nothing out of the ordinary. Probably would try one of the other venues at the casino. Again service was great and never felt rushed even though they were totaled filled with reservations."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "They prepare this awesome dish table side using a large wheel of cheese. The best Mac and Cheese I ever had. This was called an appetizer, but it could easily be a meal shared by many. This is a great place to meet up with friends before a night of gambling. They are very attentive to everything you need and will accommodate every request. This place is a keeper!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Excellent food. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I definitely would recommend this restaurant to friends and family."

  • "Wife and I had Cher tickets we started our evening with dinner at Ballo. We had a great dinner and drinks. You could definitely feel the excitement of the evening concert in the ambience. I can only say it was a great dinning experience and would eat there again when at Mohegan Sun."

  • "From the time we arrived (30 minutes early) to the time we left we had outstanding service... Luke the manager was wonderful as and accommodating well as our server Marshall. We were celebrating my niece's 21st birthday, a nice family occasion. One of the highlights was the table side Mac and Cheese... Highly recommend! The arugula salad is excellent and we enjoyed a variety of pizzas.. Margarita, alla vodka and prosciutto/arugula. Great wine, and wonderful mixed drinks!"

  • "I'm not one to leave a 5 star review, because no place is perfect, but this is a 4+ Star place. Went for an early dinner so the dining room was quiet. Our sever Jonathan was able to answer all questions about the food and made suggestions...if he is your server, take his advice, you will not be disappointed. I had the Rib Eye special that was outstanding, my wife the spaghetti and meatballs - and these were some of the best - and largest - meatballs we've ever had. For Dessert - the chocolate lava cake... I'd go more often if it was closer....skip the tables and slots - just head to Ballo for dinner."

  • "This is my new favorite restaurant. We have been to Ballo at least 5 times now and have never had a bad meal. It is truly a gem in my book. Outstanding appetizers like the Assaggi Plate, the Mussels, and the Calamari, are exquisite. The pizzas are fabulous. This time, we sat on the couches in the bar and just had appetizers and it was phenomenal."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "I dined at Ballo before a show at the arena. We sat at the bar first, had a few drinks and a yummy bar pie. (it was hard to choose which one because there is so many yummy ones) Then we sat at a table to dinner. The service was quick, almost too quick. We ordered our entrees and they literally came out 10 minutes later. I had the chicken francese - HUGE portion, I've never seen a chicken cutlet so big,but overall really good. My guest had the Chicken Parm which was also very good."
