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.

Impeccable service from start to finish. We’re locals and here to celebrate my birthday. The wheel of cheese with its truffle Mac and cheese was to die for. Yes. It is expensive but it is fresh, homemade and delish. Thanks for the birthday cannolis!

We’ve been there many times before and always enjoyed it, good food and good service. This time the food was still good but the service was poor. It was a Thursday night and the place was practically empty but our waiter kept disappearing. He seemed to have better things to do than his job. Even after complaining, he continued to disappear. I wish I had taken note of his name. If I get him again, I’ll ask to get a different server.

This was my second time at Ballo with my husband. We went with our friends for the fixed menu of Restaurant Week at Mohegan Sun Casino. We were all very satisfied with our meals. We would most definitely go back to try other choices from the menu.

Debbie, our server, was phenomenal. She offered recommendations and was spot on. Food was fabulous. We are not sour dough fans, but everything else was great.

This visit to Ballo was for Taste of Mohegan Sun. Obviously a good value at this location with several choices to choose from. My only suggestion is more of an effort to garnish. Example. Had the organic salmon offering. The salmon was placed on top of a mixed vegetable saute. I felt the salmon needed a bit of a garnish, as a balsamic reduction or something.
I truly enjoy this restaurant every time no matter what I choose. Waitstaff is always on top of their game. Never disappointed in anything.

Very disappointed it was my daughter’s 21st birthday I asked them to do something special not give her a cannoli that was already paid for that’s unacceptable for the money and time that I spend in that restaurant

Food was good / very good, the atmosphere was great our waitress was great, the drinks were good (wanted more herbal special drink options, we had wine and the signature lemon drink) The dessert was just ok. We did take advantage of the "special dinner menu" , I had pork shake (great) but had almost no crispy leaks that would have made it much better if there was more, My wife got Chicken Parm and she was VERY happy with it. The pasta was great too as were the salads. If I had paid full price for this meal I think I would have been disappointed. but because of the value you offered we were happy, however a restaurant such as this needs to keep everything perfect so the cost is proportionate. Thank you, we had a great night at Mohegan. I will mention this.. It was my wifes birthday. I did tell the waitress and basically I got a that's nice response. I'm surprised nothing was offered

Ballo was great. They took us 20 minutes before our reservation, which was great. We ordered five apps and four entrees and a few pasta dishes and we were not disappointed.

Another enjoyable dinner at Ballo's! This particular evening was during restaurant week and I ventured from my usual favorites and had the arugula salad and the salmon...absolutely delicious and would definitely have again. My husband, on the other hand, kept to his Caesar salad and chicken parmigiana, which never disappoint. The portions were plentiful, and the fresh cannoli were a perfect dessert. The ambiance had a lively buzz, and the waitstaff and, in fact, all front end staff are friendly, attentive and efficient.

Jason the Maitre D is a total gentleman and has been helpful on both our visits to this beautiful restaurant.

Laurie waited on us in November and Samantha waited on us last Sunday. Both Terrific and Cordial.

It's now our Go To Place at Mohegan. The food is great and the menu superlative.

The Mac & Cheese, which isn’t on the menu is AWESOME...I just don’t agree with the serving size for $25. I went to dinner 4 days prior and got Mac & Cheese that was close in deliciousness, $17 dollars less and a serving size practically for 2. The service was great

Wonderful dinner! We were out for our anniversary and they brought us complimentary champagne! Our server was very patient going through the menu with me to see what was safe for gluten free. There were a ton of options! We will definitely be coming back.

We waited for server at least 10 minutes. Then original one went off duty and another one saw us waiting and took our order. Then he told us it wasn’t his table and a third server helped us. He then either forgot us or was busy elsewhere. We were there for over an hour. Then the second server gave us our check. This was unusual for Ballo. We dine there often .

Going to a show afterwards so decided on Ballo. If you are looking for great food, attentive and friendly wait staff and a wonderful experience this is the place. Lisa was our server and she did not disappoint with always being available but not hovering over us. We started with an antipasti plate which was plenty for the two of us, then the pork belly appetizer...you really have to try it! Since we shared everything, we had a Caesar salad and for the entrée the Tagliatelle (shrimp scampi in a nice pasta). The wine was outstanding during the meal. And for dessert to cap things off we had the Zeppoli (Italian donuts). This was absolutely the perfect way to start the evening! And last but never least special kudos to the Assistant General Manager Rachel who is always smiling, always thoughtful and an incredible asset to this fine restaurant.

We’ve been here many, many times. This is the first complaint ever. I made the reservation for two a month ago for 6pm.
They seated us in the back room, which had a VERY large and LOUD party in the same room. We felt very out of place and uncomfortable. Although very busy, service was extremely slow...so I’ll give them that one. Food was great, except for my wife’s steak. She ordered medium-well. It came out very red and bloody in the center. By the time the waiter checked on us, she had already eaten around the bad areas. We’re not ones to complain about things like this. When The waiter finally saw the raw steak, we did say something about being a little disappointed. His only Remedy was to offer us a discount on desert!! So on a $14 piece of cake he took $10 off...gee thanks!! We will be back for sure, just hope it doesn’t happen again.
