Everything was perfect except for the noise. Its was so loud that my wife and I had a hard time hearing each other
Amazing food and service!! Will go back again. The wine list is amazing and all of the food was prepared well and delicious.
Great, attentive service without being annoying. Very enjoyable meal.
The food was fantastic and our server was top notch.
Very Nice service.. Good food!
Best restaurant in Minnesota! Always great food, great drinks and supurb service!
I was tempted to pass on this restaurant despite a strong recommendation from a family member—a big shop just off the interstate did not seem like the most charming option for dinner. But I was wrong. Ciao Bella has a great mix of patrons-families, groups of friends, intimate tables of two, and food to keep people coming back. My cocktail was well mixed, the Parmesan crusted shrimp was amazing, and both entrees were simple and delicious. Service was helpful but not annoyingly over present. I’d come back here again!
Food and service was amazing!
We enjoyed our evening out with friends. I would say that the restaurant is very loud so conversation is a bit difficult. Our food was good but not remarkable. The pizza was soggy and the salad a bit overdressed. Servers were knowledgeable and courteous. It is pricey for the amount and quality of food. Feels like a small step above Olive Garden but double the price.
This was my first visit here & it was EXCELLENT! Our waitress was phenomenal & steered us right in every selection. So good & my leftovers heated up wonderfully. I would highly recommend.
Valentine’s Day. Great food. So consistent. Service is top shelf.
Excellent menu options in a great setting. Be sure to try the cocktails, too.
Perfect Valentines dinner! Amazing service and food!
Such a great valentines dinner, our server was great especially since we had her two years ago
Food was delicious and delivered in a timely manner waiter was on top of it even on a busy Valentine’s Day can’t wait to go back
Perfect service & sensational food. 10/10 on Valentine’s Day!
Food and service is never a disappointment at ciao Bella ... the sign of good management!
Always a wonderful meal
Waitress really made the whole evening. Her food recommendations were right on and made our evening very enjoyable. Only complaint is the noise level. Very high. Otherwise,excellent.
No service for 20 minutes. But the manager made it right. She runs as tight ship and has four years. We love the place.
Wonderful service, top notch food, great Champagne.
food is always excellent. I just wish it was a little more quite...I recognized that restaurants are built to be loud but I wish it wasn't' that way.
The food and service is always great. I can't wait for the patio to open! Is it spring, yet?!
Best food and atmosphere and drinks that I have ever been served at a restaurant and for a great price. We will definitely be going back again soon.
A perfect setting for a birthday lunch. We enjoyed lots of yummy small plates and wine.
1st Time my wife and I have been to your restaurant. When in the area we will be back!
Great food with lots of choices. Meaning, pasta, pizza, flatbread, and many options on protein. Wit staff was excellent, very attentive but not bothersome. Wine list had many options. Overall, something for everyone
The food is creative, the service fantastic and the atmosphere energetic. Ciao Bella is one fantastic place for dining, no matter the occasion.
Great food & service!
Superb!! A very special place... we always enjoy it! And exceptional employees who really take care of us makes it a treat every time!!
We love it here! Worth the drive!!
Excellent food and wine
Good food - good service. A little loud.
It was alright.
Absolutely the most reliable, dependable restaurant in the Twin Cities for great food, perfect service, and a great time - either business or family.
Our table ordered Spaghetti, Lasagna and Butternut squash ravioli. Everything was delicious and the bread was amazing too!!
Been there half a dozen times or more and it always has been excellent. Great food, attentive wait staff and good wine choices. A bit on the noisy side, but not too bad. Food and drink prices were a bit higher than a $$ rating should be, but it's a great place for a celebratory dinner and is worth the extra few bucks. Really. Highly recommended.
Good was marvelous and our waiter made the evening perfect.
Fabulous restaurant! Has it all. Food, ambiance, service, value! Have already been back once.
