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.

From the time we got there we had couple wishing us a happy anniversary. That was a nice touch. Our seating was great and the food was fantastic. Our waitress was EXCELLENT. She was personable and never rushed us. I hope that this gets passed on to her.

Ballo is 'hot and cold' on food. They had a risotto special that was just fair. A little too salty and ingredients were not 'cooked' well. If you are an Italian Restaurant and want a special to be 'risotto', then it better be good! The gnocchi we had was pretty good though.
We had a prosciutto and parmesan appetizer but we asked to 'hold' prosciutto and give more parmesan instead. The quantity of cheese was not too much. Maybe someone didn't get our request and forgot to add more cheese - again the reason for my 'hot and cold' comment.
Ballo, at Mohegan Sun, is not allowed to let customers take their wine or even send it to the room! With specials like 50% off over $100 bottles you have to be able to 'finish' the wine or you are wasting a good wine! When they don't have the special on, who wants to spend over $100 and not be able to take it with you!
Ballo really needs to work something out on the wine issue!
Service, ambience, desserts (great), value, are all fine and in some cases very good, but the food and wine is one of the reasons we like to go!
We will go again and hope to hit an 'on' or 'hot' night, as we have many times in the past!

Food was very good, as well as the service. The restaurant itself was very dark which made it hard to read the menu.
