Ciao Bella has been providing great food and service to Memphis and the greater Mid-south for over 10 years. We have expanded the dinner and dessert menus to greater heights, opened a full service bar & lounge, and built private banquet rooms to cater to our customers needs for a special place to host their birthdays, receptions, bar mitzvahs, corporate functions, and other private gatherings. Whether you prefer to eat in the warm ambiance of our main dining room, enjoy dinner al fresco on our patio, experience a romantic dinner in our Grotto, have a drink while you watch your favorite team play on the big screens in our bar, or host a party in our private banquet room, you will find a warm, inviting atmosphere serving the finest of Italian and Greek cuisine. We do not take reservations in our bar or patio due to their small size and popularity. They are seated on a first come basis. For reservations larger than 8 people please call us at 901-201-2500.

Very noisy in the back room. They don’t have a cocktail menu and the food was nothing outstanding.

Service, selection & prep of food were outstanding. Everyone in our party of 7 reported their selections were delicious. Only thing I would change is noise level, place was pretty full - so that is just part of dining at a popular restaurant. Certainly was not as loud as many comparable restaurants. Will definitely return.

A pleasant quiet restaurant with great service. Excellant bruschetta. The peasant soup was delicious as was the caesar salad. We both had the pasta seafood special and that was a big disappointment. It was billed as linguine with scallops and gulf shrimp in a white wine sauce. The sauce was tasteless so the linguine was tasteless and oily. The scallops were under cooked and tasted bitter. The shrimp were good but only 3 on the plate. I left most of it on the plate.

This is such a gem in the East Memphis area. The staff are always very professional, courteous, friendly, efficient and always accommodating. The ambiance is cozy and clean always. Its like a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with many repeat customers. The food is always consistently good and the portions are sufficient. I love that they have gluten free options even though I would like to see a few more of those options. Nonetheless, you feel like family after dining with them. We were so relaxed and enjoyed our time and dinner lasted 2.5 hours. Its that kind of place. I highly recommend this restaurant especially if you are entertaining out of town guests.

Ciao Bella for Italian food was average at best. I did not care for the seating (minor compliant) as the seats in the booths were made for people at least 6 feet tall. Shorter people like myself will find they need a thick telephone book which don't exist anymore to reach the table easily. I just don't like the food at the same level as my eyes which makes it hard to see. The food was pedestrian type the usual so called Italian fare but does not measure up to most really good Italian restaurants I have been to all around the US. If I visit Memphis again this would not be a destination place. The restaurant just does not measure up to the positive reviews it gets on Open Table and Trip Adviser. The prices were reasonable and the service was good but good prices and good service does not the food taste better.

The food was fantastic and the portions were very generous. We had a fantastic waiter who was very attentive and social, which made the experience much more intimate and it seemed like we were being cared for. There was a very bright light hanging over the booth we were sitting at, but this is a very small complaint that was overturned by the great service. Honestly, I forgot about the light after course after course came out. Will definitely be back!
