Celebrated our anniversary here and had great wine and food!
Thank you Ciao Bella for always amazing quality and a consistently great experience. Especially thanks for retaining your full menu when many offer reduced. We chose to sit at the outdoor bar and things felt “normal” for a minute.
We were celebrating our anniversary and sat on the patio. Very nice evening. Food was great and service too. Definitely will return.
Excellent service and food.
love this place, fresh yummy food and everyone is super nice. the outdoor seating is absolutely gorgeous too!
A great dinner celebration for my husband’s birthday 🎂 Always a special place - excellent food & service!
Ciao Balla is always excellent! Top notch service ambiance and food!
Perfection! Service, food, and atmosphere. I'll be back to celebrate my birthday.
Outstanding service. The waiter was very nice. Excellent wine and food. Worth repeat visit.
The food, service and ambiance are very good. However, I thought it was about 20% overpriced. If prices are going up because the salaries of wait staff is going up, then maybe tipping should be given a second thought. I have always tipped at 20 - 25 %, but will be eating out less frequently if prices keep going up. I understand about the world, but one has to do what one has to do.
As always excellent experience , so happy it’s open for business
Everything was perfect!
Everything was great, per usual! Quality ingredients make for fabulous dishes. Pleasant, kind staff are a joy. Ambiance is perfect. My only complaint is that I wish there had been a special without fish on this evening.
Ciao Bella has the best patio in the state of MN. Highly recommend.
Excellent food. Excellent waitstaff. Good COVID compliance. Glad to be able to go back again.
Weather was an issue on this day however we had requested outdoor seating and we were given the option for indoor but we opt for the outdoors.
Our server was great she quickly took our drink order and came back shortly after for food orders. Food arrived quickly and we were i in able to eat our meal and stayed dry.
The server was constantly following up making sure we were comfortable out side.
Great service, outdoor patio and food.
Spaghetti and meatballs with homemade noodles is heaven!
I've never had a bad meal at Ciao Bella. Fabulous food served by professional wait staff. Great wine list, water and topped off with an exceptional dessert.
Ciao Bella is consistently excellent. Incredible food, ambiance and always outstanding service!!
The outdoor patio is very nice. Service is always top notch. The food is always delicious. The tuna burger is perfectly cooked with slices of avocado. Instead of fries, try the side of cauliflower. If you like premium wines, ask for the premium wines by the glass list. We love that we can buy an occasional glass of Caymus Cabernet without buying a whole bottle.
Outdoor seating was very confortable. Jesse our wait-person was attentive and personable. It was a very enjoyable evening.
Spectacular dinner and evening. Ciao Bella has NEVER let us down. Our wedding anniversary dinner, and the service, food and atmosphere could not have been better!
We love sitting on the patio. Service was great. Scallop appetizer was fantastic.
Even with covid they made the evening special. They met our special dietary needs and delivered great service
Hadn't been to Ciao Bella in years. It was great to return to dining out. Our waiter was great. Very attentive and had great recommendations. Started with the scallop appetizer. Delicious. I had the salmon special and my friend had the halibut. Both were delicious. We finished with the gelato sampler. Perfect.
Mikayla was an outstanding server. Great drinks from the bartender!
Enjoy the menu and consistently great service.
The halibut was fantastic.
First restaurant outing since Covid shut things down. We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to go to Ciao Bella! The patio setup was delightful, food and service excellent! We always leave Ciao Bella with a smile, thank you! Also felt totally comfortable with the safety precautions, spacing of tables and adhering to guidelines by the employees.
We sat out on the patio. The food was excellent and it was a beautiful atmosphere.
So great that Ciao Bella has opened back up for indoor dining. We had our first time at a restaurant since COVID, and chose this one because of it's fine food and wine. We weren't disappointed. The dining room was about half full, the patio and bar were appropriately socially distanced, and it felt like old times. Keep up the great work!
Nice to get back eating out- awesome patio, great service by Naomi and super food!
Consistently great food and service. Nice setting out of heavy traffic areas. Patio is lovely if you can get a table.
We were finally able to eat at our favorite restaurant after Minnesota opened during COVID. We chose outside and luckily, the weather cooperated. We met friends who we raised our kids with and the last time we had seen each other was 6 months prior, after one of their brothers passed away. We were so grateful to be back in the Ciao Bella bubble, where the weather cooperates and the food and service are terrific. By far, the best patio around.
