About Ballo Italian Restaurant

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. Kindly leave your baseball hats at home. Gentlemen must have sleeves on their shirts.

Everything was delicious as always. Waited about 5 minutes to be seated after our check in time. Waitress was right there when we were seated and took care of us right away. Everything was served within a very reasonable time from where ordered and between courses. Only negative was the eggplant parmesan that I always get didn't seemed cooked enough. I really like when is thin and crispy, Sunday was thicker than usual and not as crisp but also not raw. Still very very good. Would def recommend and come back.

The food was good...the crowd a bit noisy...our server, David, could not have been more knowledgeable, attentive, or helpful with great suggestions. We will definitely be returning.

This was my 3rd trip to Ballos and was very disappointed with the food. 2 of us had Salmon which was dry . we had to send a pasta dish back - too dry. the other guests agreed the food was merely OK.

We had a pre-concert meal with friends. What a great experience! Staff, food, atmosphere was all superb! Our waitress, Dawn, was attentive and personable. And the manager did a wonderful job of presenting and serving our wine selection at our table. It has been and continues to be on of our favorite places.

We went to Ballo to celebrate our anniversary. Everyone was very nice, great service and they even brought us a complementary dessert complete with candle for our anniversary. Food was very good. My only "complaint" is that I requested a quiet table and they put us in the bar area instead of the main dining room, where we had sat during our previous visit. The back side of the bar was closed so it wasn't noisy but it wasn't the intimate setting I was hoping for. My fault, though, for not asking for a table in the main dining room. We still enjoyed our time there.

We love Ballo! The food is amazing and the service is wonderful. We went on new year's and the service was still excellent given the holiday. The holiday menu was limited, but I still enjoyed the entree. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion dinner!

Could have more variety, choices on menu.
Also, should have a few specials. What they had to offer was very good. Just a little pricey.

Four people of Italian heritage went here for dinner on Saturday and we all thought the food was amazing! We also ordered the special Mac and cheese that isn’t on the menu. It is like parmesan truffle fries but in mac and cheese form and it was fantastic. I would fly from across the country for it so if you go you better ask for it! Highly recommend BALLO!

This was our first time trying Ballo. We usually go to MJ’s or Bar Americain. It was delicious! The service at the bar was great! They were super friendly and attentive. The arancini and meatballs were excellent. The gnocchi was outstanding and the Tagliatelle with Shrimp was amazing!!! Definitely a new spot!

Was my sons birthday and we had an amazing time and EXCELLENT service. Waiter was attentive but not over the top. Food was out of this world, every bit was so delicious. Atmosphere was amazing as well, reminded my son of a place we visited in Italy. All around a GREAT Evening spent, was well worth the 45 minute drive. Would do it all over again.

I have been to this restaurant many times. They always sat me at a booth although they say the booths are for larger parties. I had a reservation but that didn't matter. Every year we go there to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays. We were very disappointed that we could not get a booth and had to sit outside near the bush and the casino. The food is fantastic, the service given was phenomenal, and the atmosphere when we were able to sit at a booth was impeccable. We only go there because the food is fantastic and we love the Aviance of sitting in the back in a booth. Not sure if we will go again next year if we cannot get a booth.

Always an excellent time at Ballo. The ambiance is amazing second only to the service. We had Jodi (sp?) who was the ultimate professional waiter. Enthusiastic, knowledgable and fast. I'd definitely request him on my next visit. The mac and cheese is a sight to behold and no one should consider an app without considering this. Everything was great. Take a pass on the touristy alternatives in Mohegan and go here.

Last year we like the pasta Christmas special better as it has pasta with meatballs and I think some chicken. My husband said it was the best he ever had and was looking forward to it this year. This year it was just raviola - it was very good but not like last year with the other things.
Waitress and staff were excellent.
