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 growing up in a classic Italian neighborhood in Brooklyn, the food was excellent. Just would enjoy a wider selection on the menu.

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.

The old school gothic Italian setting was great. The service was outstanding, can't remember servers name but he was great. He recommended the specials, as a waiter would but he was not wrong and the surf and turn for my wife and lobster tail risotto did not disappoint. We started with the bruschetta and it was fresh and delicious.
The only negative I would write about was the music. A little on the loud side for date night conversation and was pop and hip hop hits from the 2000's. I would recommend maybe some classic Italian or maybe a Sinatra type music to better fit the surroundings and food.

We booked a last-minute trip to Mohegan Sun and were able to get a reservation at Ballo. We were pleasantly surprised at how delicious the food was. Our waiter was one of the best I've ever had -- congenial, amusing, and authentic. Do not pass up the brussels sprouts which is a house specialty -- they are extremely tasty!

Service was horrible. Waited almost an hour for our entree and when it was served we were not offered fresh pepper or grated cheese. Our water and bread were also never refilled. The restaurant was not busy and we were stuffed into a super small table in between 2 other couples when there were plenty of open tables. In the hour and a half we sat there waiting the restaurant remained quiet. I can say that we dine here at least once a month but will be reconsidering after our last few visits.

By far the best place to eat while at Mohegan Sun. We aren’t talking night and day better, we are talking an entire different week better. The front of house staff know how to make you feel special. You are ALWAYS greeted with a warm welcome and escorted promptly to your waiting table. Adam, our favorite person to guide us through our evening is the best in the business. Support staff come and go in a stealth like fashion, taking care of your every need. Sean and his staff never cease to amaze me with their creations. Tonight was no exception great food from start to finish. My advice to you is make your reservation, spend a few day in anticipation of your upcoming dinner, sit back and enjoy the ride. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed everything that has every arrived at our table while dining at Ballo. You just can not beat the experience you will have here.
