Ballo Italian Restaurant and Social Club
Service 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.

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!

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 AMGreat food but I expectedGreat food but I expected a more expansive menu with more options. Too much pizza.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a prosciutto and parmaseanWe had a prosciutto and parmasean appetizer that was excellent I could of just had that and wine and called it a night4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWas wonderful, we were goingWas wonderful, we were going to the concert and had a 6:30 reservation, we were seated
