About Ballo Italian Restaurant

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!

Our waitress was great the food was very good unfortunately the food took a very long time to come out so we had to rush through dinner to get to the concert. Our reservation was for 5:15 the show was at 7 so I thought it would be plenty of time. Our food didn't get to the table till 6:30!! The restaurant was not crowded at all so I'm not sure what was going on...

The food is good. I was disappointed in the pricing of the meatball appetizer. They used to give you 3 meatballs for $12,now they only give you 2 meatballs for $12. That’s quite a price increase. Ballo’s is always a good restaurant.

The food is unbelievable here from the apps to the dessert! We went to celebrate a special Birthday for my Dad and the Anniversary of my parents. The service was also on point. We not only had the waiter checking to make sure everything was to our liking and asking if we needed anything else, but we also had a visit from Rachel who I ordered gift cards through the internet for the Holidays. She came and introduced herself and also came by to ask if we needed anything. Every time we go to Ballo's it never disappoints us. Thank you all for a wonderful experience, ALWAYS!

Service was great. We ordered the Mac and cheese~ wasn't as good as we was in the past. Our guy who was preparing it literally took 5 minutes . Was not up to our previous visits .
Our appetizers never came out. My dinner which was the eggplant dish, was cold when I received it. We did not complain or send it back.
I frequent your restaurant a lot and this was a huge disappointment .
Thank you.

Celebrating our anniversary . We enjoyed an appetizer , salad, and our entree . We had no room left for coffee or dessert. Our waiter Jonathan was kind enough to bring us mini cannoli in a box to bring home because it was our special day. We always have a great meal .

I have dined here many times. On this occasion the server was very friendly. He or his busser did not offer or bring bread until we requested it. The veal chop was too smothered in sauce but I am not one to complain. This is the only time I did not have an A+ experience, but a B is fine as I paid for dinner with my Mohegan Sun points.

Hands down the best meal I’ve ever had. Ask for the “big cheese” if you’re a fan of, well, cheese. The “Lune” was fantastic, as were the “arancini”. Easily my new favorite restaurant. 5 stars all around.

AJ is spectacular- we had a lovely dinner , food and service is always amazing and never disappoints. AJ has a way to make everyone feel like they are his special customer . He is so genuine. We also met Dan for the first time ( our bartender ) at the bar while waiting for our table and he was one of the best I've ever met - attentive, lovely personality and I watched him engage everyone he served . And he even took the time to consult with AJ to see what wines we liked - love the team effort here at Ballo .

Always good here. We like Nick the waiter but they are all good. Jason the Manager always stops by the table with a friendly hello and checking on things. Like the good old days with some personality and friendliness. And they remember who you are and note your personal preferences on their computer. When I arrive with my family, the hostess addresses me by name even before I give it. She has an amazing memory and smile, and sees to it that our seating arrangements are what we want. The service is only out done by the food.

We dine at Ballo often and with that being said, our most recent dining experience was less than par... The thing that really disappointed us this time, was the fact that we were looking forward to the calamari and we were shocked to hear that at 6:00 they were out of it! We also had to wait a very long time for our check. Overall, we love dining at Ballo, but this visit was a little disappointing.

We have dined at Ballo several times. It has always been a wonderful experience. This time it was still very good, although there were a few things that did bother us First as we were being seated, we requested a different table in a better location (note, the restaurant was not crowded). I sensed a bit of an attitude about this. Were told to wait and they would see what they could do. We stood in the middle of the restaurant for about five minutes and finally we were seated, not in a very friendly manner. As for the the meal and service. The food was excellent. The service was good, but a bit rushed. We no sooner got our drinks and the food arrived. The waiters assistant kept trying to fill the glass of everyone in our party with the sparkling water that only one of us had ordered. If we refused, we just didn't get any water at all. So overall a pretty good experience, but not quite up to what we have come to expect fro this restaurant.
