Highly recommended!Have been there twice - once for a family dinner, and the other time with a friend. Food was excellent, service was very personable, and definitely on my list as a place to go for a special occasion! And being in. the heart of Little Italy is the icing on the cake!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food for reasonableGreat food for reasonable prices.

Food was excellent, service was good, and it was quiet and romantic. Will definitely be back.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit to Ciao Bella. We stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant in the heart of Little Italy starving for a good lunch...and it didn't disappoint! The staff was very attentive to our needs and the food is scrumptious. All items are made in house and we both cleaned our plates. I suggest you try the mozzarella and tomato salad, the balsamic vinaigrette on this is truly a delight. We will be back!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find in Little ItalyI don't know why I kept missing this gem in the middle of Baltimore's Little Italy. Maybe it was the fact that it's surrounded by many of Little Italy's more iconic eateries (Sabatino's, Chiapparelli's, Da Mimmo's, Amicci's) that I've patronized over the years. Ciao Bella, with its superb service, excellent menu and sophisticated atmosphere, far surpassed what I have experienced with its neighbors. I can't wait to return. Bravo!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodMy Family has been going to Cia Bella's for years and we love the service and the food.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCHARLES WAS GREAT!OUR FIRST TIME AT THIS RESTAURANT WAS MEMORABLE. OUR WAITER, CHARLES, HELPED US THROUGH THE MENU & GOT US JUST THE RIGHT DISHES & DRINKS(THE WHITE SANGRIA IS TO DIE FOR), AND KEPT EVERYTHING MOVING .
VALET PARKING MAKES IT EASY TO VISIT ANYTIME.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSorry we hadn't tried thisSorry we hadn't tried this restaurant sooner! We go to Little Italy frequently, but for some reason just never thought of coming to Ciao Bella. We will definitely return!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service didn't makeExcellent service didn't make up for small and overpriced portion sizes. The value wasn't there.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was a goodThe restaurant was a good find. The salad was fresh, the veal melted in your mouth and the pasta was cooked perfectly. The wine that was suggested only added to the exceptional flavor of our meal. The owner was most accommodating and hospitable. Service was outstanding. I would try this restaurant again on a heartbeat.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodI have been to Ciao Bella a few times already, saw a Groupon deal and booked a romantic dinner for my boyfriend and I. We were warmly greeted, sat at the bar for a glass of wine, and were seated 5 minutes before our reservation. The olive oil mixture for dipping bread was delicious, as was the sweet/creamy house salad dressing. Gnocchi for him, Tortellini for me, and both meals were practically inhaled, with a few pauses for sipping wine and listening to the live piano player. His first time there; he loved the experience so much that we will be returning with his parents in a few weeks. Out of all the restaurants in Little Italy, this is the one I feel always consistently produces me a great meal and atmosphere. Great experience!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I really enjoyedMy husband and I really enjoyed our dinner. The server was friendly and the food delicious. Lasagne for my hubby and Veal Francese for me. Canoli for dessert was maybe the best I've ever had...they add a touch of cinnamon. Would not necessarily recommend for romantic upscale dinner. Lots of tables fairly close, but for good food and fun in a great part of Baltimore, I'd recommend it in a heartbeat...in fact, we already have!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!Great food, excellent service and lovely atmosphere. We love this restaurant and plan to return again soon!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual the food and serviceAs usual the food and service were great, host/owner/chef Tony is always charming and solicitious. Great value for the money. New wine list is affordable and good.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very good dinner.We had a very good dinner. Tortolini alla Romana and Chicken Gabrielle. The house wine is inexpensive and good with a solid selection among several varietals. Owner Tony Gambino greeted guests at the door and invited them to a drink at the bar before seating.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were amazing,Food and service were amazing, ambiance could have been nicer, but that was due to the neighboring table picking a new ring tone during their dinner at full volume. Very friendly staff.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thoroughly enjoyed ourWe thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We were greated upon arrival, but even with reservations were told to wait at the bar. we did order a drink and the bartender was extremely friendly. The couple ahead of us did not have reservations, but were seated before us. The bread was fresh and the drinks came promptly. We ordered the soup of the day which was Tuscan crab. It was delicious. The temperature could have been a little hotter, but the flavor was suberb.I ordered a sald with the house dressing which was terrific. The veal special and the pasta with shrimp were both great. The waiter was proffessional and friendly, but not very attentive. He may have been new. We would definately return.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food! The veal saltimboocFantastic food! The veal saltimbooca was incredible and the hand made pasta with white clam sauce was the best I've ever had. Looking forward to going back!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDined here with hubby lastDined here with hubby last night! WOW! Food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. Loved the fried calamari, house salad, seafood pasta. We have our new "spot" in Little Italy!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMa great casual place to dineThe restaurant is undergoing updating throughout and looks to become as inviting inside as the food is wonderful to eat! I was there on 3-13 and was one of "those" tables restaurants usually dislike. I was that table of 3 that turned into a table of 5 right as dinner is about to be served. Some wanted to order off the menu special dishes and others needed a cab called with their dinner order(seriously). The staff was quick and patient with accommodating everything perfectly even making more then one dish for one of us. Bottom line is the food is wonderful and you wont find better service from a waitstaff then this one.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
