Excellent regular meal choices with real Italian flair. Very nice daily specials.Great soups.
It was really warm inside. After asking about the air conditioning, finally it began to cool off. I don’t want my servers sweating over my food. Staff was nice and accommodating. Nice place.
It was so hot it was hard to enjoy our meal. We were sweating, it should not be like that when you are paying the amount of money you pay to eat here..
It was one of the hotest days of the year and the temp inside the restaurant was the same as outside.
The restaurant was very warm making it uncomfortable. We had a few problems with the food we ordered, but the waitress was outstanding.
One of the best nice restaurants in NW Indiana.
Wonderful food! The piano player (& accordion) was excellent! He was too loud at times and a perfect level at other times. Our server, Jasmina, was great! We’ll be going back!
Sam was our waiter and handled the service wonderfully. We arrived 1/2 early to get a drink at the bar - but at 6PM on a Friday - there were no empty seats. We enjoyed the energy but the noise level in the room east of the bar is high. Listen for the specials! Salads are also varied and excellent. I think everyone was pleased. The Risotto was different - so make sure you are ready for a large bowl of it. Overall, pleasant experience.
I was blown away by the service. The food was tasty, and authentic. There were plenty of great seats. Definitely coming back. Also loved the only e reservation tool.. genius
Awesome place with excellent food.
Food, wine and service are awesome. The only complaint is the noise level is a bit high. If the acoustics could be altered to absorb some of the noise, this restaurant would be perfect!
The bolognese sauce is soooo good! The gnocchi is excellent! The Filet is very good! Just love every dish I have tried!
Great wine selections on half price night. Daily specials never disappoint
. Service was very good as usual. We will come back soon.
I always have a good meal at Ciao Bella. Will be back again.
Food and service was wonderful. Came here to celebrate Mother's Day, took the last reservation at 11:15 AM. The restaurant still accommodated our group of 6 even after being 15 minutes late, seated us right away. Dishes were appropriate sized, not too big where you'll have a lot of leftovers like most Italian restaurants. Considering it was Mother's Day, they should have had free mimosas for the females as a "special." They had a special Mother's Day menu, but prices were still the same, no discounts. Food was good, the burrata salad was my favorite. There was no kids menu which was unfortunate, and no pizza offered at the time for brunch so check before going if they have kid friendly options. Overall, I would go back, food was tasty and authentic.
It was my birthday. We made reservations and received a confirmation call. Showed up 20 minutes early and waited 40 minutes after reservation to be seated. We talked to the manager after 30 minutes of waiting and received attitude from him and he never checked back again.
I would not go again. I got the risotto di mare in white wine garlic sauce which tasted okay, but was primarily squid and calamari. The squid was improperly cleaned and unfortunately I but down very hard on a beak. I told the waiter, who attempted to convince me it was a part of the tail of the only shrimp in my risotto. My mom had the linguini di mare in the white wine garlic sauce, which had the sauce all in the bottom of the dish and the noodles were tasteless-- it was also primarily calamari, and small clams. We also got the grilled vegetables-- which was primarily peppers rather than vegetables. Overall, I was very disappointed. I got no apology and no discount for the improperly cleaned squid with the beak present.
The food is fantastic the service is phenomenal. My wife and I have been going to this restaurant since it opened and it has Yet to let us down.
Good food, good service and reasonably priced. Definitely enjoyable.
great entertainment and the service personnel were very friendly especially for a Saturday night
Everything was just OK. The Salmon I had could have been grilled a little longer. Just not exceptional like it was the last few times I was there. I had reservations yet I still was given a table near one of the main paths to the reception desk. There were plenty of other open tables and no one was waiting at the door for a table.
I frequently dine at Ciao Bella and it is always a great experience. The food is wonderful and the service is always prompt. I have taken family and friends alike on many occasions. Love the ambiance!
Our dinner at Ciao Bella was delicious. I had the bolognese and my husband had the white fish in lemon caper sauce. Both meals were so delicious that we shared. Our server was beyond excellent and very freindly. We will be back soon.
Outstanding Italian in NW Indiana
It’s always a good experience here! If you’re in the area, you have to try!
You can always count on a great meal, prepared perfectly!
Great food as always! Friendly, efficient server!
We really enjoyed Easter Brunch! The assortment of food was great! There was scrambled eggs, French toast, potatoes & sweet potato, ham, prime rib, tilapia, salmon, chicken, sausage & vegetables, pasta, pasta salads, Ceaser salad, fresh fruit and a dessert table! (I’m probably forgetting a few dishes!)
The serving staff was very tentative.
We did have to wait about 20min for a table even with our party of 4 reservation.
The room that we were sitting in was very cold.
Drinks were not included with the brunch prices.
Great food, great ambiance
When I made the reservation we were seated right by the door (chilling day) while there are plenty of other table we could have sat in. Otherwise great food and service!
Always a wonderful experience. Food was delicious and presented beautifully. Staff very attentive and equally attentive to our children.
Food and service was great!
We had a 6:30 reservation. Arrived at 6:26. We were not seated until 7:00 although other groups of 10, 6 and 2 were seated prior to us even though some of their reservations were at 6:45. Way overbooked tonight. Table we finally were given was against the windows and set up like a head table at a wedding. Very uncomfortable.
WOW! Excellent as always. The service, food, and atmosphere was outstanding.
I wish more restaurants would run like yours. I hope you keep expanding.
The restaurant is very noisy. The music is loud and it made it hard to hold a conversation. The tables are crammed into the dining space. The young couple at the table next to us had the same problem with it being too noisy. The food is good, service is good. We might go back, but I doubt it.
Excellent service and food. The waiter was very patient with us. We had dinner with a couple we had not seen in 10 years. Very highly recommended
Had a wonderful birthday dinner here for my hubby and BFF. Great service, food and ambience. Our server was knowledgeable, efficient and personable as was the rest of the waitstaff. Had 2 daily specials and 2 menu items that are Ciao favorites-all were served very hot and very tasteful, portions adequate. Will definitely return and recommend to others!
Best lunch buffet in NW Indiana. For $10, chicken, pasta, spuds, salad, & meat balls. Very, very good!,
I/we go there for their grilled salmon. Loved the special octopus appetizer for Valentine's Day, the salmon always good, and the pistachio gelato. Good cappucino. Sam was excellent. Happy that they had a bottle of Eruption available because so popular always LOW availability.
As usual, we had a great time and a great meal for Valentines Day. Calamari and salads were superb. Chilean Sea Bass was presented perfectly. We'll be back. Sam was great and knowledgeable on both food and wine.
The place was great. Loved the vibe. Very comfortable. The hostess could have been a little nicer. But we only had to deal with her for a few minutes. Our server was great!
