Valentine’s Day. Great food. So consistent. Service is top shelf.
Perfect Valentines dinner! Amazing service and food!
Such a great valentines dinner, our server was great especially since we had her two years ago
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.
My date and I had a good time there with delicious food.
Service was quite a bit slow tonight and the crowd was unusually loud. Hard to have a conversation between the four of us. Cacio de pepe was incredibly dry (two of us ordered it.) Tomato basil soup was good. Nothing to write home about tonight, sadly.
The service was outstanding! Wait person was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the specials for salmon and scallops and both were done to perfection. The atmosphere was quiet so we could enjoy a nice conversation with our friends.
Great atmosphere and service. Food was outstanding.
I took my wife to Ciao Bella for her birthday and we had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and appropriate serving sizes. Our waitress was a delight and the servers were also pleasant. We will be making return trips in the future!
I liked the blend of flavors which seemed more distinct than other Italian restaurants. I had the scallops with lemon and my husband had gnocci--he liked his better than I did. My lemon overpowered the scallops, but not to complain. We both appreciated the ample bread baskets which are not the norm any longer in restaurants. Ambiance very nice and lively, but still the ability to talk. We would return here.
Had a booth in the corner of the lounge. It was great!
We had great food, great service & atmosphere. Our night was especially highlighted by our server Donnie & the friendly hostess.
Great food, great service, great Ambiance. We’ll be back
Ciao Bella was fabulous as usual. We sat in the bar area where it was quieter than in the dining room. The food was fabulous as was the wine. Service was very good and not too overwhelming and we had time to talk and eat at a relaxed pace.
Good and service are always impeccable!
You can NEVER go wrong with Ciao Bella. The food is always outstanding. And I really appreciate the professional wait staff that seems to really appreciate that they're working at a great restaurant that wants to please its patrons.
