Fabulous service, excellent food and drinks. Would definitely dine here again!
Great food and excellent service in a great atmosphere. Also had an excellent wine list would highly recommend.
Excellent food - Excellent service. My husband and I shared the eggplant parmesan appetizer, which was delicious. For the main entree, I had the shrimp picatta and he had the chicken parm. Plenty of large jumbo shrimp - So, so good and full of flavor. My husband really enjoyed his chicken which came with a side of spaghetti. Plenty of food, but left room for cappuccino and tiramisu. The tiramisu was so fresh and delicious. We brought back cannolis. And they too were fresh and delicious. Ballo does not disappoint!
Excellent dinner and drinks. Food is awesome and always the staff is great
This was our first time dining at Ballo. There were 4 of us. The food was excellent. Great sized portions! We had the Chicken Parmesan and the Gnocchi Entrees and for Appetizers we tried the Meatballs, Fried Mozzarella, and Garlic Bread! Garlic Bread was delicious, Fried Mozzarella was good (didn’t really care for the Zucchini it was served on, and the Meatballs were good but didn’t seem to have alot of flavor. Our server David was excellent, Courteous, and Attentive. For cocktails we tried the Tequila Pomegranate Sour and the Blueberry Martini. Both were unique but definitely worth a try. .... And the desserts... to die for. The Tiramisu was delicious and the Cannolis had regular or espresso (😋). All huge portion sizes. Will definitely be back for sure!
Great service , great food and drinks, can't wait to go back
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and the experience was wonderful. We were pleasantly surprised at the end of our meal with complimentary cannolis. Highly recommend & we will definitely be back.
Our wonder server Rachel was Fantastic!! She took our drink order immediately and provided us with special of the day. The Filet Mignon and the side order of crispy potatoes was, OMG Delicious!! I will return and recommend this restaurant. It won't disappoint. Cheers!!
Mike is amazing as always. Whenever we come up from Long Island, Ballo is ALWAYS our go to spot!! Keep up the AMAZING work and keep going with the AMAZING food!!!
Everything was outstanding. Highly recommend. It was difficult reading menus , not enough lighting- but we are old so it doesn’t count. Waiters were on top of everything
Service was very good, however dinner selection wasn't great.
Never had an issue in the past, so will assume it was just a bad night.
Superb dining experience. Food was great and food was plentiful and extremely delicious. I would highly recommend Ballo.
It was a great all around experience
The food was cold and not tasty. The cannoli were stale. The waiter was very nice.
We always love Ballo’s. Food has always been excellent. Never had a problem with service. Always courteous and informative. The have an excellent menu and flexible. I recommend it highly!!
We have enjoyed the dining experience at Ballo’s Restaurant for several years.
The food is delicious and just to our satisfaction.
From time to time, We have invited friends with us and they also enjoy the food and the selection.
The staff is the best, always friendly and pleasant.
Great customer service.
Great food and service never had a bad meal at Ballo
Ballo was a good place to eat, but while we enjoyed our dinner for the most part I can't really give it a must go to rating. When I booked the reservation I put down that it was for our anniversary. This wasn't acknowledged at any time during our visit. We were seated by the wall near the casino so it was a bit noisy if you wanted a cozy, intimate dining experience (our anniversary?), though it wasn't too bad because the casino wasn't mobbed like it would normally be due to Covid 19. My food choices were very good, but my husband wasn't so lucky. His mussels appetizer, while tasting good, had a lot of unopened mussels left at the end, which made gave him concern about their quality/cooking. He ordered the swordfish special entree which was overcooked and a bit dry. Overall, it was good, but nothing to rave about. Not sure if we'd go there again, but we might.
Everything went exactly as I expected.
Meals were outstanding. We visited for a birthday celebration and service was also outstanding. Highly recommend and will definitely visit again in the future.
They have a nice menu and the food is good at Ballo. Service was good and, overall, the ambiance is decent. The only issue that I have is the seating philosophy. There were empty tables throughout the restaurant yet they insisted on seating parties directly next to other parties. During a time of pandemic, someone needs to rethink the table assignment strategy.
Our waiter Pedro and his assistant were outstanding. The old school care he gave us was so special. Very hard to find in restaurants today. The first round of drinks were very light on the pours from the bartender. Pedro brought our second Round in much better. All our apps and dinners were amazing. The fresh sliced basil in the sauce. Key. Thanks. Can’t wait to be back.
We went to Ballos for our anniversary, the food was very good. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive without being in the way, exchanging silverware and removing plates, keeping the table neat and clean. We will definitely go there again and recommend trying if you are looking for an enjoyable meal while at Mohegan Sun.
Birthday dinner with my boyfriend and another couple. This was our second time and it was even better than the first. I’d go every weekend if I were more local!
The taste of the good was great, however the amount of food we received for the price was below average.
Our waiter Angel was fantastic! You couldn’t have a more knowledgeble,friendly,helpful and pleasurable young man. A real asset to your staff. All your other ancillary staff was also very friendly and polite. Service was unbelievable! As was the entire meal, from the wine , to the bruschetta appetizer and the main meals.Zeppoli for dessert is our favorite.
Ciao Ballo but we will definitely be back again soon.
We went for our Anniversary as we love this restaurant, never disappoints!
Our first time dining there.....food was outstanding. Drinks were pricey. My husband had two “old fashioneds” and we were charged $47 total. That’s way too expensive for drinks.
Very nice to give us complimentary champagne for our anniversary.
The food was delicious and perfect portions!!! The staff was amazing, and the ambiance was very warm and romantic! Amazing time will be back
The appetizers were good. However, the entrees were average at best. Service was good.
This was our third dinner at Ballo. The service is impeccable and the food is beyond words. We highly recommend Ballo as your next dining experience when visiting Mohegan Sun.
I had the swordfish with a unique side olives with pine nuts and raisins? But it was great. I was full but really wanted to try the zepollies so I took it to go! It had a grand marnier glaze not sure about that? But it did have a orange flavor
Food is always great
Excellent, had a drink and appetizers at the bar. Wayne was our waiter, a self proclaimed food nerd. Very knowledgeable about both food and wine. The meals arrived quickly, perfectly cooked and hot. Couldn’t have asked for more
Always a nice experience to eat here. They have amazing antipastos that are great for sharing. I usually end up having one of their special entrees for the evening even though there is plenty to choose from the regular menu. We love the ambiance there as you feel you’re in Italy and a nice escape from the casino. We’ll definitely be going back again.
Thank you so much for your kind review!
The food at Ballo's is some of the best I have eaten in the New England area. The service was wonderful very attentive. I wasn't sure about the size of potions since Ballo's is a little more expensive then your average local Italian restaurant but the quality and the portions were well beyond my expectations. We were seated in what I guess was the outside courtyard which faces the casino which although it did have a hedge wall between them it was a little noisier then I would have liked. I think if you want a more romantic or quieter dinner you should ask for inside. Besides that I would recommend Ballo to anyone who is celebrating a special occasion or if you just want to express your partner or better half.
Thank you for sharing you dining experience with us!
Food was great, and service exceded my expectations.
Thank you for joining us over the weekend and sharing you experience.
Great from hostess to waitstaff & especially our meal.
Thank you for the champagne to start our anniversary dinner.
See you again soon
