    It was my birthday and I had been there previously and I was so disappointed. I ordered mussels, they were delivered to the table cold, very small and tasted not fresh. The wedge salad was good. My entree was too expensive for the portion, lobster was over cooked and sauce was disappointing. The pasta was good though. My husband didn’t like the ciopinno at all. While i appreciate the birthday cannolis, I don’t like cannolis at all and my husband says they charged us for them. The drinks were great. I loved the blueberry martini. Service was good. Jose was attentive. I was very disappointed with my birthday dinner

    Brandon is a great waiter. We were sitting on the outer dining area. Noisy from the casino, plus people walking by & staring in. Other than that, it was great. The make the best mac-n-cheese, in a big flaming pot, right in front of you.

    Ballo never disappoints. Another amazing meal. Blueberry Bianco martini is a great cocktail choice. Specials are always an excellent choice. Tried the special app - fresh mozzarella with grilled peaches and Italian ham. Excellent. Service was attentive and the crew works as a team. Don’t forget to ask for “secret menu” options. The “secret” truffle Mac and Cheese is to die for. Highly recommend and we will be back…again.

    We were at Ballo’s on Friday 8-12-22. I ordered a fish that came with broccolini. All the chef placed on my plate were stalks- no florets. The waitress explained that they make a big batch and sometimes that’s what customers get. Needless to say we complained to our waitress and the manager as well- much to no avail. But wait, if you think this story ends here it gets worse. My wife ordered chicken francese. When the dish arrived, the chicken as well as the fingerling potatoes were both I immersed in water. The chicken was inedible due to the toughness of the meat and no flavor. We complained to the manager who said-and I quote-“Sometimes we get meat that’s tough and hard to eat.” No kidding! Do yourself a favor, skip this place and go eat elsewhere. The quality has went downhill. Next time we’ll go to Chick-fill-A. If anyone from Ballo’s or Mohegan Sun reads this, please feel free to contact me and we can discuss this further.

    Ballo Italian - Mohegan SunResponded 6 days agoHello, we are sorry to have disappointed you. Broccolini actually has no florets in it whatsoever. It's a stalk shaped vegetable. Regardless, we served a tough piece of chicken and the sauce was under seasoned. We did remove the entree off of your dinner check. If you'd like to give us another chance in the future please reach out to us directly so we can make some special arrangements for you. With the hopes to regain your trust.

    The service at Ballo was slow and everyone was squished basically into the back corner of a huge facility. I was not impressed at all. Our drink came with a spill on the bottom of the glass. Also, the server seemed distracted.

    Food and service are outstanding. Menu is limited, however wine list is exceptional. Not a quiet place, open setting with much noise, but that doesn't bother us. Very pricey, so bring some dough.

    Delicious meal. Pasta with vodka sauce was excellent. Had antipasto for a starter and everything on the plate was delicious. We typically order the same things as we know we will be happy. Hubby gets Veal Chop Parm, it was great as well. Nice drink selections with their own recipes, I recommend the Blueberry Martini! Make a reservation. It was very busy for a Monday night.

    We've been to Ballo quite a few times as we have always found the food to be very good for the price. The three of us were seated quickly as we had a reservation for 6pm. The waitress took out drink order when we were seated and had to time to review the menu. She and her mother started with the Burrata salad. Very small (and very few) tomatoes cut in two along with the Burrata cheese. Disappointing and definitely not worth $19. I had the Iceberg Wedge which had a tomato basil vinaigrette. Also disappointing. She and her mother had the Ravioli which they said was better than other times we've dined here. I had the Chicken Parmigiana (which also came with spaghetti and meat sauce). It was okay but bland. We didn't have desert but she ordered a cappuccino. After waiting a good 10-15 minutes, she questioned where it was. They finally discovered it sitting waiting to be picked up (we could see where it was sitting) so now was just a warm cappuccino. Smaller cup than other times and they forgot a spoon. Also note that they charge your credit card on the same device the server uses to place their orders so they are standing there while you are selecting the tip. Overall, kind of disappointing compared to other times we have visited. May have to find an alternate sit down restaurant to eat.

    Been a while since we dined at Ballo. They have drastically increased their prices. I mean over $30 for a bowl of pasta? They must think they are in Vegas. There's many many superior Italian restaurants in Connecticut that aren't gouging their customers.

    The Gnocchi was great. Chicken Parm was tender and flavorful. Fresh pasta would have made it awesome. The calamari was the worse part of the meal, small, overcooked and rubbery and just tomato sauce. The cannolis were good. Our servers where excellent! Music was dance music and a little too loud. Some authentic Italian music would make the experience.
