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 at Mohegan Sun was inspired by San Galgano - a Gothic abbey built in the 12th century, located in Tuscany.

Once in BALLO guests can enjoy a large wine by-the-glass list, specialty BALLO cocktails and freshly prepared Italian fare from the kitchen 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. Arches, stone and bold materials will accent this exuberant dining experience. But the food at BALLO is the real celebration!

Weekends, Holidays, Concerts: Parties of 10 or more are required to choose one of our amazing set party menus.

Food a great as usual. Went there for the gnocchi with truffles and it was delicious. Just wish it was served with the pork belly as it normally is rather than the pancetta.
Ceasar salad was our starter and was yummy just a bit overdressed.
Overall delicious!

Always a great time. Wouldnt be a trip to Mohegan Sun without a fabulous meal at Ballo. We had a cocktail and decided to eat dinner at the bar. The Covid protocol was top notch, and we felt comfortable during our entire time there. The 2 bartenders were attentive and helpful with our cocktail choices and meals. See you again soon!!!!

We took a weekend getaway to have a mini honeymoon after our micro wedding. Our dinner at Ballo was the perfect spot from staff to food to location. We hope to come back for a visit soon.

This restaurant is within Mohegan Sun casino. The food is outstanding. Would like to see greater variety of dishes, or the menu changed more often. This restaurant is mainly visited by patrons of the casino, options are limited for repeat customers (especially if one doesn't eat fish, for example). Also, menu prices indicate a high-end restaurant; yet you are served your food on a plain wood table, with a dinner napkin folded twice to serve as a placemat. This leaves rather poor impression.

We have been going to Ballo since they opened. I have to say our most recent experience was superb, all the way around. Our choices this time were, the meatballs with the best spaghetti sauce they have ever put out, calamari, our favorite arugala salad, all apps. Entrees, I got the Tagliatelle with shrimp and my husband got the Double R ranch prime NY strip medium... perfect. All highly recommended. Ask for Samantha as your waitress.

This place has an excellent atmosphere....we’ve been there 3 times and ordered different entrees each time and every time felt that the food was just okay. (We come from NY where Italian food is incredible, so there’s no comparison.) This last visit I ordered eggplant as an entree and I would strongly advise against that. It was like sliced hard and almost cold eggplant that was barely cooked. It was really awful, but because the atmosphere and drinks were terrific, I didn’t complain. I just ate the side of pasta that came with it and that was plenty enough. My husband had the chicken franchise and loved it. Overall it was an enjoyable experience, so we will return.
