Move further into BALLO and visitors can sit at one of the largest carrera marble bars ever built or have dinner in. Arches, stone and bold materials will accent this exuberant dining experience. But the food at BALLO is the real celebration!

    In spite of having reservations, they sat us at the worst table in the house. Other couples got better tables so we asked to be moved. We had not been there for a few years, as we didn’t enjoy it last time. Decided to give it a second chance and we’re just as disappointed. My pasta dish was tasteless and my wife’s pork chop came with burned breading. Limoncello angel-food cake was plain angel-food with no taste of limoncello. Two visits- two strikes.

    We eat here every time we come to Mohegan and I review it often. The food is always beyond great but the service is always even better. Yesterday we were greeted by what I'm assuming is the GM ( in a suit always and works the floor like a maniac in every aspect). This man doesn't flinch. He actually exhausts me watching him meet, greet, sometimes even serve. That's what Ballo is. It's a welcoming group from beginning to end, working in a judgment free zone, while serving the BEST food you could ask for. Had the Sunday Gravy, filled with chicken, sausage, and yet another meatball. She had Ravioli along with a meatball appetizer. Had Jesse as our server, no issues whatsoever, just point blank great service. We live almost in Bostons North End and we will drive to Ballo over an hour away to get Italian food and service at this level. Thanks again for a great experience.

    Overall experience was good. Although, I had a reservation and was told I had to wait 15 minutes, which was fine because we were a few minutes early. Then another customer came in, they had a reservation too but 30 minutes after ours and was seated. After asking hostess again, we were seated. Better communication upfront is needed.

    Second time dining here while at Mohegan Sun. Food is outstanding…steaks are tender and delicious, the swordfish cioppino is flavorful and fabulous: the swordfish, seafood and tomato broth were top notch…. I think the most delicious cioppino we have ever had anywhere. Side of honey Brussels sprouts were scrumptious. Service was friendly, attentive and prompt given the timeline we had pre-concert. It’s our go-to restaurant while at Mohegan. Enjoy!

    Had a wonderful time celebrating my Birthday at Ballo. The food was excellent and the service was prompt and friendly. Prices are a bit expensive so expect that, for a special occasion definitely worth it. Loved the little extra touches, coffee (came with a tiny biscotti) and recognition of my special day - it was all very sweet. Definitely appreciated and definitely would go again.

    Restaurant was very busy with large groups so made conversation difficult. Wait staff was attentive and professional. Despite having eaten here many times the food was mostly disappointing. Not much flavor at all in chicken dish and the eggplant was dry and overcooked. Bread was terrible. Had a sourdough flavor which does not complement Italian food.

    The food, service and ambiance are outstanding. Am I out of line mentioning that there are some people in the world who are not addicted to cheese? The addition of a couple of dishes without cheese would be nice. Even as a special.

    Had their Sunday Sauce Special which was very good! Overall it was a great dining experience, but call me old fashioned or a traditionalist, but the music was not appropriate to the setting. It was loud and much too hip for a classic or traditional Italian setting, and actually just a tad disruptive to both the conversation and the digestion. The outside casino environment is loud enough, so something softer and more sedate would only enhance the ambiance. Hey, maybe even go old school with some of the classics.
