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!

We always love the food here, sadly our service was not quite the same as we usually receive. We had to request bread, then asked for warm bread and could we have olive oil. It used to be served with Oil, balsamic, and parm. cheese. We were never offered pepper for our salads or any other selections. I understand that this was the Friday before Valentines day, but even a nod or acknowledgment that your server would be with you would have been welcomed. One less than perfect dinner won't keep us from coming back, just felt it needed to be said. Thank you, be back soon.

My girlfriend and I did an early Valentine’s Day here and it was a real treasure. Our waiter Dane was friendly and knowledgeable and filled with amazing suggestions for food pairings. The cocktails were also stellar. Order the Negroni or Grapefuit Gimlet. This place is a delight.

Ciao Bella has become our first choice for fine dining when in the Bloomington area. The food is always excellent. The service is exceptionally good. Menu choices and specials provide a wide selection of options. This is some of the best Italian cuisine available, in my opinion. The setting and ambiance are pleasant as well.
