Love Ciao bella
It was very elegant! Great service and great food we enjoyed ourselves!
Douglas was great! He really made our experience great. He was very knowledgable of the menu and gave excellent recommendations and also made us laugh. The food was very good and fresh. Would definitely go again
This was the first time my husband and I ate at Ciao Bella and it was amazing. Great service, amazing food, and a great selection of beverages. We can't wait to go back and do dinner.
Cuisine was amazing and staff was extremely great!! Will be back.
It was a great experience and the restaurant is beautiful. The value and flavor of the foods did not blow me away, but it’s not to say that the food was not good. Usually dining at a nicer restaurant, I experience food that is outstanding, which was not the case here. The service truly was excellent though. Our water never stayed half gone!
As always the food and service are outstanding.
Everything was good except noise level! Way too noisy!
Our server Anthony was excellent’ The food and ambiance was amazing too!!
Giant place with a nice bar. Heather our server was excellent and the food was top notche. Chicken spring rolls were amazing
This is our favorite restaurant in Minnesota. Brought lots of happy times and satisfying bellies with each visit! Lovely atmosphere and exceptional food. The chicken fettuccine is delicious. Also I highly recommend the butternut squash ravioli. Best ever!
Love this place.
As always, we had the best dining experience with Peyton! It adds an extra special touch to be dining out on date night and being served by someone who now feels like a friend. And everything was simply delicious!
1st time visit......way to noisy to carry on a conversation without shouting.....Food was delicious but unhappy about noise level for a special dinner.
Very nice lunch. Fish (sea bass) was done perfectly, and service was great! Really enjoyed the crusty bread, too.
Food and service are fantastic. Just be prepared for the noise on a busy evening. Still worth returning to.
Wait staff and bussers are quick to clean up and see to your every need.
The restaurant was so loud that two of us couldn't even converse across the table. Very poor acoustics in the restaurant, will not be returning any time soon.
We had a great time and meal with Katie as our server. Her suggestions on entrees and wines was right on. We will be back
Our server, April, was fantastic. I had the blackened sea bass special with a root vegetable puree on February 29, 2020. It was delicious! My only complaint is that it did not include a vegetable...no greenery on the plate which made the presentation quite dull. My husband had the salmon with mashed potatoes special and also got sauteed spinach and roasted radishes...also delicious. He shared his spinach with me so I got some sort of vegetable. When we visit family in Minnesota we always make time to visit Ciao Bella!
We hadn't been there in several years so a little worried that it would not be as nice as we had remembered, but it was wonderful. The food was excellent, Melissa our wait person was perfect. My often when my mother and I go out to eat we are not treated as well as men in suits, shall we say, but felt very pampered and the food was just as terrific as we remembered. Perfect adult night out!
My husband took me here to celebrate my birthday! April was a phenomenal waitress! Our food was great! Everything about this place was wonderful!
It was delightful. The food and service were amazing! It’s our favorite restaurant!
I thought it was a joke when they brought my dessert-a small budino. It was closer to
Top quality service and food. Little noisy but going early works for me.
Absolutely outstanding! All of it!
Very nice atmosphere, food was outstanding as was the service. Definitely worth the trip.
Great service and amazing food! I’ve never been disappointed with this restaurant. Love it
Great food great service. A little on the noisy side but not horrible
We love Ciao Bella!! One of our all time favorite places!!! It's comfortable and has excellent food!! The servers are top notch, friendly but very knowledgable about the menu and specials!
Waiter was good, however, would as a question and walk away or when we were trying to ask a question he wouldnt wait. Almost as if he had other stuff on his mind to where he felt was more important. My wife tried to ask questions but felt we were being talked to, not with.
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!
