The drinks and food were amazing! Worth every penny. The waitstaff was the best I’ve ever experienced. You can tell they value their employees and really care for the quality of service provided. I will be going back.
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!
Wonderful food and service!
The staff placed us in the perfect area of the restaurant for our first dinner out as a couple -- wonderful ambiance for Valentine's Day weekend.
Wonderful dinner for Valentine’s Day!!
