I live in the neighbourhood, and often take visitors to this my favourite haunt. It is quiet, music sets a nice tone but does not impede conversation. Food is very tast and consstent each time.

I really wanted to like this restaurant. It started off good, got seated right away and the Insalata Especiale with goat cheese was quite good (nothing out of this world, but good). Date had minestrone soup which was good too. Mains is really where it fell short for me. Ordered the chicken parmigiana with high hopes and it fell flat on everything. Chicken just tasted old/not fresh, it was very soggy, nothing crisp about it. Flavor wasn't great. Pasta that came with it was bland shells with red sauce, I've had much better. For dessert we had Tiramisu which I thought was really good, one of the highlights of the night, along with the piano player. Service was good, food was not. Don't think we'll go back.

We went to ciao bella for my girlfriends birthday. The food was excellent, service was exceptional and the atmosphere lovely. Ciao bella really helped me kill it for my girlfriends surprise birthday. Best date spot around.

We enjoyed our dinner very much, although one in the party found the lobster special menu (cannelloni) just OK. I thoroughly enjoyed my pasta vongole, my usual - must branch out the next time. The music is very pleasant, and not so loud that conversation at the table is unstrained. The service was attentive, cheerful and helpful.

Ciao Bella Restaurante & Piano Bar is a west end treasure. Staff, though overworked at the time, were friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was intimate and the live piano added a wonderful background. Good food and a great time was had.

Service was good but the food is just okay. The waitress didn't ask us if we want any peppers when our food arrives. And the spaghetti wasn't al dante. However the price was decent for the environment and the sevice.

What a delightful little restaurant! We were seated immediately and server remained attentive the entire meal. I had the three course salmon special with veggies, house salad and my husband ate the tiramisu after he devoured his lasagna!
