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.

We chose to celebrate 2 birthdays at Ciao Bella and it asks you to list your occasion. Well no one told us that they don’t do anything for birthdays. No singing or special little dessert. Our server seemed very busy as well. I even called again day of to let them know about my allergy and was just told to tell the server. I informed her right when I sat down and as appetizers were brought out she had no mention of what I would be able to eat and when I did ask she wasn’t really sure. This experience was just mediocre and somewhat frustrating.

The food was excellent. The server was really good, when she came around. We spent an extra twenty minutes there because it took so long to get our first interaction and then took a long time from getting check to her picking up the payment. We also got seated next to the kitchen. It was our anniversary dinner and it kind of hampered the ambiance. Our reservation request specifically mentioned "wedding anniversary." I'll still go back because the food was delicious. Expensive, but it was just that tasty.

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.
