The entire night from the moment we were seated, to our departure from the restaurant was excellent. Our server Melissa was extremely knowledgable, friendly, energetic and genuine. The drinks, Scallops, pasta and Seabass were of the charts. It had been many years since I had been here but it may now be my new most favorite restaurant in town! thank you!

April was our server. Extremely pleasant and great personality. Just a few hiccups that we normally receive from Chio Bella. Wasn't offered crushed pepper or fresh parmasean cheese for my spaghetti & meatballs. Pizza for my wife didn't get a separate plate. Had to eat off the big pizza platter. Not a huge deal but a big weird. We also waited long on refills.

Overall she was great just needs to fine tune the details a bit!
