CIAO Bella Restaurant Reviews
Salads are very good, bread service is excellent. Entrees are mostly good, though some meat entrees were bland. (Though seared ahi on wasabi mashed potatoes seemed out of place on an Italian menu, it was done better than many seafood places.)Restaurant is very loud--hard to hear dinner companions over the roar of the place.
The food, ambiance, service, dishes...every thing was fabulous! The food was something out of this world. So tender and full of flavor; this is my new favorite restaurant!
Turkey burger was great!
by Warren W.
Everything is al a carte. If you want a side salad it can be $8+ for one. Kinda got duped on that one. Otherwise fantastic service and great good.
by Wade S.
Great food and service! Butternut squash was great! We also really enjoyed everything else: the walleye, chicken parm and ahi tuna.
by Shana J.
Really nice wine selection, pasta choices!

Splurge for the tiramisu.
by Zosia B.
Wonderful atmosphere and delicious food! Highly recommend red pepper pasta with scallops!
Don't come here if you have a car inferiority complex as the parking lot is full of Mercedes, BMWs and other swaggy cars. But if this doesn't bother you, nice food and great service!

The halibut and the red pepper linguini with scallops were delicious. The service is outstanding, too!

the Harvest Grain salad will haunt your dreams and perhaps even convince you to write to Bon Appetit magazine, begging them to find the recipe for you.
by Lauren M.
Always fantastic food and service. Nice classy place; don't dress down. Heirloom grain salad is incredibly good!
by Chris D.

If you like strawberries and martinis, ask for the strawberry martini with Chopin
by Chilly A.
Spaghetti and tiramisu were good, service could have been better. There was also a fly in my dad's drink. A little disappointed overall.
by Caitlin D.
Try the crab cake sandwich. Soo good!

Great Food. When they have it in season the Copper River Salmon is to die for.
by Jason C.
Cooper River Salmon is amazing.
by Jason C.
APPETIZERS GOOD MEALS

Sit out on the patio, because it's really loud inside when it's busy. Caramelized Brussel Sprouts are to die for!
by Angel Y.
The steak is great. The mushroom ravioli was killer but best of all - our server Michelle was over the top good - ask for her!!
by steve c.
The pesto encrusted fish is Ahhhhhmazing!!!!
by Becky M.
Enjoyed a fantastic meal with my boss and 2 collegues. I was referred to this place by a fellow foodie named Scotty. Scotty, is a waiter here and took good care of us.
by Michael M.
Good food but slow service for business lunch
by Rachel R.
Attempted a 2nd experience. Burnt pork chops ordered medium. Mistakes happen, it's the recovery that concerns. Never an apology. A simple "I know your expectations were not met sorry." it was comped.
by Shawn K.
Just had the chopped salad and Porcini Pork Chops....Awesome flavor and top notch service!!
by Steven D.
Really? Bartender told me the risotto is made with cream. Is this Olive Garden or a place attempting to be a classy Italian spot? Learn how to make the basics. Tenderloin crustini was great. Entree ok
by Shawn K.
Heirloom Grain salad is the best, as is the roasted Brussels sprouts and pizza!
by Raquel J.
THEA the bartender is the best! The 2nd best is their Shrimp Linguine with extra spice!
