At Ciao Bella, we serve simple, fresh Italian cuisine made from local ingredients. Our handcrafted meals are accompanied by a thoughtful, approachable wine selection.

Our philosophy is simple: quality food and wine presented with welcoming service. Every meal. Every day. Please join us.

A Minneapolis metro favorite, Ciao Bella was opened in 1997 by Minneapolis restaurateur Rick Webb, whose pursuits have set the standard in Twin Cities dining for over 40 years. Heading downtown?

It was fantastic! Our waiter was awesome, very familiar with the menu and had great recommendations. We had fresh pasta, the fettuccini was out of this world! Thank you for the wonderful dinner, we will be back!

The restaurant offers great food and service. but, because of all of the hard services, it has poor acoustics. very loud / cross talk

Yeah, it was loud. So very loud. But the $50 steak was so good I didn't even notice the noise. More pages to the wine menu than the food menu. No beer menu but they have a couple on tap. More beer options please! Pricey as can be but you get what you pay for here. 9/10 would dine again but in a quiet corner.

The food here is amazing! The Seared Ahi Tuna and Short Rib and Roasted Tomato Ravioli were exceptional. The wait staff were so friendly and professional and extremely attentative to our table. The whole experience is well worth the price. I will stop here again next time I’m in the twin cities.

Consistently top notch over the years. Great wine options, the food is excellent, and the desserts are worth saving a little room.
