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.

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!

We enjoyed our evening out with friends. I would say that the restaurant is very loud so conversation is a bit difficult. Our food was good but not remarkable. The pizza was soggy and the salad a bit overdressed. Servers were knowledgeable and courteous. It is pricey for the amount and quality of food. Feels like a small step above Olive Garden but double the price.
