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!

Diner Reviews
  • "For the 2nd time in a week you have outdone yourself. One word isn't enough so here goes, WOW WOW WOW. Tonight we celebrated my wife' birthday. We again asked for Adam to handle our meal and once again he came up big. If you do not have a favorite server here, you can not go wrong when asking for Adam. Each time we walk in the front door it feels like we are walking into our own kitchen getting ready for a great family meal, and we are. The only difference is someone else is making it. Great night, food and service could not have been any better, we had a great time and are already counting the days to our next visit."

  • "I have to admit that I was impressed with the whole experience. They gave us a nice table away from the smoke, bells, and gongs that you normally get at a casino. Service was outstanding and equally important the food was delicious and average priced."

  • "Only complaint is that even though it is a smoke free restaurant, it is right next to the smoking section of the slots and tables. The smoke permeates."

  • "On vacation in Mystic. Highly recommended by the hotel and oh man what a place!!! Food is excellent! Calamari are crispy and tasty! The skirt steak was like cutting thru butter and the seasonings were succulent!!! Choice of wines were outstanding! Do not be fooled because this fine dining is inside a casino. The ambiance is in a class all on it's own. Btw if your from NY, if you love Besito Mexican Restaurant then you will love this place! It's the same owner!!! Try it out and I promise you will not be disappointed!!!!"

  • "First a shout out to Andrew our server and Jio his side kick! Andrew was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. I was thinking about a steak and he recommended the skirt steak - wow! Tender, a lot of flavor and would order it again. My friend had the Scallops - another awesome entree. Andrew and Jio both went above and beyond - they were engaging with us and attentive. Also, upon arrival, the hostesses were friendly and welcoming. Whoever did the hiring knows what they are doing. It was a great choice in restaurants and we appreciate and would like to thank Andrew again for a wonderful dining experience!"

  • "I booked a reservation to surprise my husband. Fro the minute we walked in I knew we were in for a romantic dining experience ! Our waiter was well informed and when asked his opinion on what choices of food and wine he would recommend he was spot on. Service was spot on. The food arrived without any delays and perfectly timed. Entrees were delicious!! We didn't have room for dessert but the Maître'd brought as a box of cannolis to take with us a gift. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Ballo's really gets it done. Birthday dinner, and you hit all the right spots. I can not say enough good things about Adam our server who ensured an OUTSTANDING evening. The dinner was well paced and never rushed. The fried calamari was served piping hot and were very tender. Roasted beets salad with fresh mozzarella was to die for. The prosecco toast and the bruschetta were a great surprise to start. The three dinners could not have been any better. Home made tagleatelle with shrimp scampi was the best my daughter has ever had. My wife went with the med rare lamb chop with a side of fig and goat chees polenta, great. I went with the PEI mussels that had the best broth ever made. My pastry chef daughter loved the deserts, THANKS!"

  • "The service at Ballo's was incredible. You wanted for nothing. Everyone was attentive and courteous. The food choices were wonderful and our dishes were excellent. We ordered the cannolis, but only ate two. I would suggest that staff ask patrons if they are seeing a show, inasmuch as you cannot taken them with you. However, your hostess was very kind and allowed us to leave them with her. We picked them up after the show."

  • "Ballo Dances with great food & outstanding service. We were 4 and all of our food was excellently prepared and delicious. The lights were turned down, which I thought was romantic and relaxing. When our waiter saw that one of our party was having trouble reading the menu, he brought us all little Ballo flashlights on key chains to use and take home. The head people are very attentive. if they sense anything out of place, they run over. I tasted our wine bottle and said to our waiter, are you sure this is a 2012? I was joking, but one of the head people ran over to make sure I was pleased with the wine. This is the best restaurant at the casino."

  • "The service was absolutely fantastic. OpenTable reservation got us right in and seated. I ordered one of the homemade pastas and it was a tremendous dish. Casey our server, was very pleasant and the rest of the staff was great as well. They quote prices on all specials, which is a nice change. I usually dine exclusively at Bar Americain, but I'm glad I decided to try Ballo. Will definitely be back."

  • "I love the vibe of this place – I had been once before and this time tried all new items. So glad I did. We shared the Pork Belly App and that was amazing. I would highly recommend it. I had the skirt steak and it was good. I ordered the steak medium however it was more medium rare. The corn and crema underneath was exceptional. The other diner had the ribeye special and the fig & goat cheese polenta and thought it was terrific. I definitely would return to try more dishes. Service was well-timed, attentive and friendly, and they even put a candle in the delicious cannoli for his birthday!"

  • "Ballo is a fine restaurant. Food is very good for the most part although a little pricey although since there is a whole lobster tail in the Zuppa de Pesche guess $49 is not all that bad since it was delicious! My husband had veal scaloppini and said it was good but the veal was not that tender. Overall it was a very nice experience and would go back and choose something a little more economical."

Service was exceptional , we were never rushed or interrupted by our waiter, he seemed to know when to approach us for cocktails, serving of dinner and a follow-up with desert. Our experience was very relaxing spending over two and a half hours having lunch be becoming reacquainted with our dear friends."

  • "Our night started off with great hospitality from our server Steve. He was friendly, charming, and more than willing to make any accommodations necessary. The food was above our expectations. We loved the beet salad, gnocchi, and the seafood special. The homemade pasta was delicious as well. Cost wise, for 4 people with appetizers, drinks, and entrees it came to a little over $150 which is reasonable for the type of service and food we received. I will definitely recommend to anyone and go again myself. "
