Ballo Italian Restaurant and Social Club
We went to Ballo for a specialWe went to Ballo for a special occasion. The food was excellent, and the service was great. We had the salmon and would recommend if you enjoy salmon - very tasty. The prices are just a little too high for recommending to groups or family with kids. I would recommend for special occasions only.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMcasino trip to the sunmade reservations while on the bus to mohegan sun. i feel we made an excellent choice, once bus arrived , we made our way to the resturant and started the night off right. no matter what win or lose we were going to et good.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic! WeThe food was fantastic! We had the Assaggi cheese platter and then some salads and pizza. Everything we had was delicious and the waiter was great!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and surroundingsThis was our 2nd time here. Food and service was great. Husband had veal parm, which was excellent. Ceasar salad was also excellent, but very heavy on the garlic (which is fine for garlic lovers like us.) Nice, romantic dining option in a busy mohegan sun. We were sat in the back of the restaurant, away from the casino activity, which was great. Saw groups as well, which were seated at nice, large round tables. Overall great experience.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good foodWe've been to Ballo several times and haven't been disappointed. My husband had the lunch special, ceasar salad, pasta with spinach, pancetta and mushrooms and canolli for dessert he was very pleased. My meatballs were hugs and very tasty. Consistently good with unobtrusive service. Lovely setting.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for Romantic late DinnerExcellent Service.

We were a party of four, all chose different meals and appetizers and we each felt we had the best dinner. My husband and I both agree it was the best meal we have had in a long time (and he has a specialty meat market!)5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPrivacyAn excellent meal.... We were tucked away in a small room with 3 other tables.... Very private and excellent service from Jemison... Definitely will be back....5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMRidiculously Good!This was our fourth visit and it hasn't failed us on any dish. Everything is amazing and our waiter Stephen provided impeccable service and personality to match.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at Ballo'sAwesome food! Great service. Only negative is we felt rushed to get out because at 10pm they turn music up really loud and start to collapse tables to change it into a night club.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMsuperb dining3 visits have convinced me that the menu is great have had chicken francess, skirt steak, and veal marsala, all were excellent, cooked perfectly and served hot and tasty!!! appertisers such calamari great. the service is impeccible and wait staff very knowledgable. I come just for a good diner but seems like a great places for groups and social activity. as afrequant visiter to the casino at Mohegan Sun have found a place that suits my needs for a great meal.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GoodWent to Ballo for a birthday dinner. Have been here before, and I still have yet to order off the menu for entree because the specials they run are great. Waiter was on top of everything, but I blame the wine for me not remembering his name. We got sat in a little side room with fireplace which was the best spot we have been placed and I will be asking for that location every time we go there. Overall food and service is always good, Personally, I think it is the most bang for your buck at the casino based on size and quality of the food.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Mohegan restaurantWe have ate here at least a dozen times, it gets better with every visit , truly outstanding and good value5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMService to be rememberedWhat I will take away with me was the priofessionalism of our waiter. Self confident but not arrogant, knowledgable, but not not up-selling the menu and attentive but not intrusive throughout the entire dining experience. The menu although a bit pricey could not be faulted for the quality or quantity of the portions. One negative memory were the chairs which one would not want to sit in for more than 15 minutes. Also they did not seem to match the table height, something was amiss there.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic dinner, as always!I was welcomed with my six-month old on Mother's Day and had perfect service and an amazing dinner. The food and ambiance is always top-notch at Ballo.

Thank you, Paula M Neves5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service, good foodWe went to Ballo's for a surprise day-before-Mother's Day dinner. Gaetano, our server, was outstanding. I found my food both great tasting, properly prepared and well presented. The Gnocchi was perfectly cooked with a good amount of tender, perfectly cooked crab. The addition of bacon and corn to the dish added both great flavor and texture. My wife compared her Panzanella salad to that which we had in Rome last year, fresh and flavorful. The night's special was a bone-in ribeye. Perfectly cooked, tender and wonderfully flavorful (yeah, I stole a piece from my son!!) I can't say enough good about the wait staff and their attentiveness and courtesy. A bit pricey, but worth it for that special occasion....I'll be back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten free pasta!I was very happy to know that they offer a gluten free pasta! My dinner was delish!

Always classy and never disappoints. Food and prices are outstanding.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a nice dinner, theIt was a nice dinner, the waiter was overly attentive in the beginning and then we couldn't find him - no salt and pepper on the table and when we asked for it they about threw it at us, seemed insulted! the steak was excellent, but needed salt for sure. Very pleasant atmosphere, waiter was amiable, but too pushy trying to sell us things we didn't want - if we'd wanted it we would have ordered it.
definitely will come back.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian OasisA good solid choice for really nice Italian food. The back dining room is great with a nice quiet ambience and you would never know you are in the middle of a bustling casino environment which is wonderful.
I was pleasantly surprised to see several interesting bar choices... and LOVED being able to order an Aperol cocktail with Prosecco !!!
We had a minor issue with one entree and the restaurant went out of their way to deal with it quickly and very nicely.......AND, unexpectedly not only brought us two extra side dishes gratis for our only very slight trouble..... BUT also adjusted the bill !!! Now, that is what I call INCREDIBLE GREAT SERVICE ! MADE US INSTANTLY LOYAL CUSTOMERS!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian Restaurant You can finMy wife said that it is the best Italian Meal she has "ever" had .

Food was great as well as the atmosphere.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely a destination restaurantDefinitely a destination restaurant. Fabulous dinner served beautifully. Will come back!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNot quite up to usual high standardI have dined at Ballo several times. In the past I have given this resturant five stars, but on this visit it was four. We are usually greated by name (from our reservation) and welcomed back. In adddition, because we are regular customers, a little something is brought to the table to start (like a small sample appetiser). This kind of service is worthy of 5 stars, but none of this happened during this visit. Still service and food were very good.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen to Ballos several timesBeen to Ballos several times and as usual it was great. From the food to the service to the atmosphere. Also at 11:00 the back room turns into a nightclub. The DJ plays a great mix of music.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI wish I remembered her nameI wish I remembered her name because our server was excellent. We had a later reservation and part of our party was over an hour late. We were not made to feel rushed and it did not seem as though anyone was inconvenienced by how long it took our party to finally order. As someone who has worked in the industry for years I know how frustrating that can be on the restaurant's end. Our server was never invasive or intrusive yet always available when we needed her. The wine list was impressive in that it offered an excellent variety at very reasonable prices. Overall we had a great experience and before we even left we talked about going back. Great Italian menu, loved the meat and cheese plate and the wine list.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome food and service.Awesome food and service. And when I made resevations 2 months prior, I mentioned it was for my husbands birthday. After we ate dinner, we were so full, that we didnt order dessert. The waitress came out with a small box filled with mini cannolis and a birthday candle. She said it was "on the house". What a wonderful surprise to end a great meal.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
