The restaurant was beautiful, the staff were amazing, and the food was excellent.
Lovely outdoor space, service super great, food was excellent. All staff were fun and energetic.
The food was amazing and our server, Heather, took very good care of us.
The food and service was excellent. The noise level was very loud and it was difficult to carry on a conversation.
Douglas was fabulous and took great care of us. Get the red pepper and scallops….so much flavor!!
The best part of Ciao Bella is the relaxing atmosphere of the outside patio, but of course, the food and service are both awesome, one must have the limonatta dessert to top off your visit.
It was a good experience would go again
Great food and service. One of the best meals and service we have had in a long time. Drinks, pasta and dessert to die for. The only areas that take away from perfection was the nose level and it was too warm as if there was no AC or AC issues.
I was impressed with the staff and the food. I would recommend it to my friends.
EXCELLENT!!! Will be returning!
Love the beautiful outdoor garden patio!
Wonderful food and service!
We were at Ciao Bella to celebrate a birthday. The patio was nice and shady so very comfortable in spite of the hot day (umbrellas helped too). Food was excellent and service was great. We had a very enjoyable experience.
It was too loud. We could not hear each other. We’ll still come back. awesome food and service.
Absolutely everything was amazing, I couldn’t complain if I wanted to.
Ciao Bella was fabulous. We had made a reservation for 7:45. We were seated at a table and it was very noisy inside. I walked outside to see if the hostess had any tables on their wonderful outdoor patio. They did and so we moved out there. It was delightful … love their patio. Our server, Ann, was wonderful .. efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. All in all a very enjoyable evening.
The dish I ordered was not available but other than that it was great!
Dinner with my brother from California. Server Jennifer was just great, one of the best we have seen. Keep her at all costs.
Ciao Bella never disappoints. The staff is great and the food is too. It’s obvious that the managers are good to the staff and the servers pass that on to the customers. Our favorite restaurant in the Twin Cities.
Great experience….have been there before….loved the dinner!
This was the best meal I've had in awhile! Food was outstanding
Fabulous service & Great food with plenty of choices
We took another couple to Ciao Bella who had never been there before. The food was great but the table next to us had a few too many which spoiled the the meal.
Great halibut! Love the patio. Best patio around the area!
I celebrated my birthday with a dear friend. We both have been there before and the food has been excellent.
My very favorite restaurant for years. Everything was great yet I do believe our server could have been more attentive. We had a great dinner and some drinks. Yet, we sat longer and drank our wine. She didn't come back to check on us as we had closed out our tab. Our water glasses were empty and I had to try to track someone down to get them filled.
The food and service were fine, but the noise level made conversation difficult. Some like the "energy." I would rather hear and be heard. Deliberate choices must have been made in the architecture of the place to keep the decibels up. That was their choice. We had planned another lunch there but have changed our minds.
Great food and fun energy
The noise level was exceptionally high. Very annoying. We could hardly converse. They need some sound insulation. Badly.
Always the best service in town. Best food in town.
A first time visit and a great experience. Waitstaff professional and helpful. We will be back. Don’t know why we waited so long.
Food was good and our waitress was terrific!!!
Our server Jeff was excellent and checked on us often. We ate out on the patio and that is always a lovely place to have coctails and food.
Yes always dinner at ciao Bella was perfect
Absolutely loved the overall experience at Ciao Bella. Will enjoy again soon!
Fantastic food, great friendly service. It was a pleasure seeing our friends from Zelo.
Ciao Bella is one of our favorite restaurants for their foo (my wife loves their sea bass), serve and ambiance.
We will be back soon!
Jerome took great care of us and listened to our requests. We were on a time constraint and he heard us and service was outstanding. The food was delicious. The organic salmon salad was perfectly cooked. Thank you!
Great food good service and the patio is wonderful.
We are visiting from out of state. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff with some of the best Italian food we’ve ever had! We will make this a go-to spot whenever we’re back!
