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.

The food and service is always exceptional. We were greeted by name and shown to our seats immediately. The table service was excellent. Prices very reasonable. Menu items show great variety. We had a very lovely dining experience.

This is our new favorite place. Great food, cozy bar area, very friendly. Prices are very reasonable for quality and quantity of the dishes served. Location can be a bit off-putting as it's in a strip mall, but once you walk in it is charming. Suitable for jeans or dressy.

My husband and I are from North Jersey, and we were incredibly impressed with the food. Everything was delicious, from a traditional pizza, to pork shank, to beef short ribs ragu. The cannoli were perfect. We shall return!

Perfect place to celebrate a birthday. The good was wonderful - from the salmon to the pastitsio. The charcuterie was divine - just the right combination of salty and even sweet. The only downside was that our server seemed a little harried.

Everything was good. Definitely go back again. Service was great. I may not have had exactly the right meal to express whether or not it’s authentic. I prefer a little more enhanced sauce for the spaghetti and meatballs. I’ll try another dish next time. You will have a nice evening for sure and a great place to take a date or business dinner.

We are a group of 5, but offered a booth.
It is ok, but appreciate for little more space.

I was disappointed that the menu had changed and that there were no calamari or mussels on there, which you would see at any good Italian restaurant. I don't quite get the Greek and Italian mixture, but that is ok. The bread did not have a hard crust and there were no bread sticks. Maybe I was generous with a 4 star.

We were in a corner so it was very quiet which is good. My friend (visiting from Atlanta) has problems hearing if there is a lot of noise so it was perfect for us to catch up.

Service was attentive and the food was very good. Definitely would visit again. The Ciao Bella website indicates that the dress code is "smart casual" but apparently that request isn't known by the customers so I guess it's not enforced.
