The best Italian food

*****

I heard good things and decided to try. Food was great, the service was excellent, and the price was reasonable. I will be back.

*****

Best manicotti I've ever had! Everything was delicious and the service was excellent!

*****

Perfect Italian feel with delicious Italian food!

*****

Excellent experience. Food was fantastic and service was amazing

*****

It was my first time here and I was not disappointed. You get free cheese bread (which was delicious) and free breadsticks with the meal and I think this is such a nice touch! The staff was friendly and the food was super good! Will definitely be coming back.

*****

1st time here! Fantastic food, awesome server! I will be here again! Everyone was so very happy with this place.

*****

Server was very polite and attentive, food was great. Appetizers were good. Only wish I had gotten alfredo over the marina/afredo mixture.

*****

Today, I had the pleasure of enjoying a lunch here at Bella Ciao in Saint Paul MN. Our server Eric was a very polite and courteous server. Every single item served was fresh and very delicious. I have included some pictures of my lunch.

*****

Our service was amazing! She was fantastic. The food was also great! Already planned a date to go back!

*****

Family owned. Complete expected Italian menu, all the expected, with a couple unique items. Quiet, good service. I had a baked rigatoni with sausage special. Son had the salmon with spinach, both were delicious and very fresh tasting.

*****

Wow. The food is fresh, it's clean, and it all comes out fast. You can taste all the pride and love put into it all.

And order the cannolis. Freshest I've had outside of Chicago or New York.

*****

Went here with my little family for lunch. Service took a bit longer than other places, but I didn't mind at all because the food was bomb! Not overly salty like most places and everything tasted fresh. Especially the veggies: crunch crunch. I would definitely visit this place again.

*****

Great food and excellent service!

*****

Wonderful restaurant! Highly recommend!!! Hope your server is 'Eric'!

*****

Hidden ITALIAN gem in the Oakdale/Mahtomedi/Lakewood Village area! There isnt anything we had that I would not recommend! The Diablo is a little spicy for some palates, though. Exquisite food! Excellent service from Erick!

*****

Ordered off of DoorDash - I ordered chicken parmesan and Alfredo and both of them tasted amazing and then the breadsticks with it were perfect. Its rare that I enjoy a restaurants Alfredo sauce and it was delicious. Very happy with this new find.

*****

Take out order . Food was delicious !

*****

Food was good.. service was fast and friendly..

*****

Lovely place to chow down on carbs. We had Alfredo and Gnocchi. Both were delicious, and I can't wait to eat the leftovers!

*****

Had sausage and peppers. Red sauce amazing.
Interior a bit bare and cold.

*****

Loved the experience there the team there are amazing, you can tell they love what they do. I got the chicken Parmigiana large portion. You won't be disappointed!

*****

Bella Ciao is my familys favorite local restaurant. My kids think its the only place that can make a Shirley Temple ;)

Here youll find a staff thats both helpful and kind. The food is good and prepared with care, and always makes it to your table quickly. Weve eaten here many times and have never had a bad experience. I see theyve expanded the restaurant and their success is so deserved.

*****

Hate to keep rating this place high. Starting to get crowded. Once again, awesome food and service! Love it....

*****

We went for lunch, but I ended up ordering off of the regular menu. The Chicken Carbonara was very delicious, and I would order it again. (I wish they had a lunch portion on the menu, as I had plenty to take home, and it never reheats quite the same!) The complimentary cheese bread was appreciated, and I could've eaten the whole plate myself!

Bread sticks were brought out with the meal, and I'm not sure if we could've asked for more. It took quite a while to get our food, so I wouldn't recommend it for a quick lunch spot, and since it took so long, I guess I would've preferred to also have bread sticks while we waited!

*****

Chicken Parm is excellent. Cali was great as a server, totally worth a visit!

*****

Excellent food, the restaurant looked great, and 5 other patrons entered after we were seated. Slow day, nice and quiet. The waiter was great attentive to the three tables.

*****

The food and service was excellent!

*****

Excellent food. Very nice service. Thank you.

*****

Best Chicken Parmesan. I tell everyone about this place.

*****

Fabulous place.
Absolutely impressive meals. The chicken Marsala is top notch.
Very friendly and engaging staff.
I'm so happy to have found this place.

*****

After moving to MN over 10 years ago, I FINALLY found a place that serves amazing food!!!! Do yummy and excellent service!!!

*****

Love this place but the chicken was one of the worse things. No flavor, and chicken tasted super dry felt like it was boiled. I only made it to halfway before tossing it out. Other than that I love their other dishes.

*****

We Doordashed, wanting to try something new. The food was delicious, a bit spendy, but worth it as it'll last 2 meals instead of 1. Bruschetta was good, a bit weird to be served on garlic toast and only 4 slices for ~$12 so again, spendy, but the topping itself was well prepared with tomato, basil, cheese, balsamic and red onion. Delicious pasta, would definitely eat here again.

*****

I grew up in an Italian neighborhood near Chicago. Bella Ciao is comparable if not better than any Italian restaurant I've been to. It's absolutely amazing. I can't say enough about the food, the staff and the ambience.

*****

Excellent menu and fantastic food. My wife had the chicken Parmesan with a side of spaghetti and it was fabulous! I had the chicken carbonara and it was stupendous! We shared a superb Italian salad before the pasta came out. It was enough for 3 folks! We shared with a couple we were eating with. And absolutely marvelous place! We'll be back :-)

*****

So mad we waited so long to try this place. Absolutely amazing food, perfect portion sizes and good service. Forget about that chain olive garden nonsense, head to Bella Ciao instead!!!

*****

This place has very good food!
The service is always good!

*****

Always a great meal and service! Thanks for being a great option!

*****

Awesome food and great service.

*****

Good !

*****

This is a much nicer place on the inside than what it appears to be from the outside (Bella Ciao is located in a strip mall). The waiter was attentive, and the food was very good. The portions were more than sufficient. It was a little pricey for a strip mall location but perfectly reasonable were this a brick and mortar building. Still, I have no complaints about the atmosphere or location. I tipped twice: once for the service and the other for the presentation. I look forward to visiting Bella Ciao on subsequent trips to this area.

*****

I didnt actually eat in the restaurant. I got door dash after trying to get Italian food from a place that we had frequented. Thankfully, they did not do door dash and your restaurant popped up and I said lets try it. Amazing food. That was the best chicken carbonara Ive ever had and huge portions. I can eat that for three days, my husbands chicken fettuccine was amazing, he was full but refused to stop eating it until it was gone and dont get me started on the tiramisu. Fluffy, light, whipped filling was to die for. Thank you. Sometimes you regret spending money on eating out, but not this time. Well worth every penny.

*****

Stopped in with some out of town guests tonight. We all enjoyed our meals very much. First time there and we heard it was good. We will be back.

*****

We had the chicken marsala and bella ciao chicken. Both fabulous and would have again!

*****

Our favorite restaurant in the area; exceptional food and service!

*****

Great food in a casual atmosphere!

*****

I love this place! Been here several times and they never disappoint!

*****

Overall very good

*****

Food is amazing. Generally Im not a fan of chicken breasts but their lemon caper chicken is one of the best things Ive ever eaten. The mashed potatoes are also very impressive. The little bread sticks that come with an order are also surprisingly very very tasty. I wasnt a fan of the buffalo wings but I had them delivered so maybe that ruined them. I thought ten dollars sounded high for a slice of cake but their chocolate cake is some of the best restaurant cake Ive had and the size is decent. Super moist and comes on top of a layer of chocolate sauce.

*****

The staff were great. Very friendly, quick service. The food was perfection! I'll definitely be going back to try other items on thy menu!

*****

The food and service were awesome! Strip mall casual place with nice touches like tablecloths and cloth napkins. We will definitely go back again! This was a delightful surprise when we stopped in a whim.

*****

This place you have to try!!!! Its a very small sized restaurant specializing in Italian foods My first choice off the menu when my girlfriend first introduced to this restaurant was Fettuccine Alfredo and MAN!!!!! It was life changing!!! Ive never had a better Fettuccine ANYWHERE, and now it being at least my fourth time back, i picked up another order to go I like my noodles on the softer side but however they cook theirs, its been perfect every time and they havent skimped on the most wonderful cream sauce, served with two heavenly breadsticks!!! I always stop at Bella Ciaos right off 694 and 120 now whenever Im in the vicinity!!! Quick as you would expect to be served, more luscious than you can imagine!!!

*****

Food is delicious, fresh made daily. You get free cheese bread with each order. Staff is attentive and friendly.

*****

Great customer service and food.

*****

Probably one of the best Italian restaurants around.

*****

Absolutely delicious!!

*****

Our server Shannon, and food were outstanding! We will be back again.

*****

The food was good... the waiter was really pretty ????

*****

It was our first time there. The food was great. Family of 5 and all of us brought leftovers home. The leftovers were just as great. We will be back!!!

*****

Food was excellent, every time I stop in I truly enjoy myself. The young ladies are very kind and extremely helpful.

*****

Bella Ciao is a hidden gem. The food is fresh, always hot, and consistently good. We love everything on their menu that we have tried!

*****

My meal was excellent

*****

I'll take my time to review this later. Pretty awesome, please come visit this place!

*****

I had Lemon Chicken had a great sauce and capers with pefectly seasoned potatoes Pestruto Rosemary's Chicken for the wife you gotta eat here is my review...

*****

Excellent food. Service is great. Ambiance is Italian. Comfortable place, intimate. This is our 3rd time here. Can't wait to come back!

*****

Nice place, helpful service. The garlic cheese bread is great.

*****

Great food, you should definitely try it. The ravioli is delicious.

*****

Lovely food and bartender

*****

Server was so friendly and sweet. Carbonara and the margaritas were 10/10

*****

Went on a Sunday evening, it was seat yourself. The initial wait for a server was a bit odd. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was cozy.

*****

Cheesy garlic bread with marinara sauce as a free appetizer to start & a varied menu made it hard to decide what to order (we shared). Only recommendation would be to somehow add more seating, otherwise very enjoyable experience & bang for the buck.

*****

Been here many times
Always the same great service and same great food!

*****

We have done dine in, carry out, and delivery and this place never disappoints! I am a big fan of Italian food and they do it right with rich flavors and ample portions. It's an unexpected gem and worth trying. Marsala and Bella Ciao Chicken are two of my favorites.

*****

The atmosphere was incredible, amazing service and warmth toward customers. The staff looked happy to serve customers and please guests. The food tasted as good as it looked! Highly recommend the Ravioli alla bolognese for newcomers of this establishment. All in all, a great experience!

*****

This was our first time here, and the food was excellent! We originally went to Donatelli's, but the wait would have been 45 minutes, and we remembered hearing about this place. Glad we tried it! The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is because our waiter was not very friendly, and rarely came to check on us.

*****

Amazing food. Awesome flavors and seasoning. Strip mall location belies the quality. Xavier was a great server.

*****

Good food. Good service.

*****

1st time there, will definitely be back! Really good food!

*****

This place is the best Italian place you will eat at in MN. I have had Carbonara in Italy and Croatia, and this tops both places. Bella Ciao will not disappoint.

*****

Good food but expensive for what you get.

*****

It was a cozy atmosphere with great service and exceptional food. Exactly what I was looking for to meet up with a dear friend! I'd been there once before and will definitely be back!

*****

You automatically get crostini/brushetta with mozz and a tomato dipping sauce. Good touch. My calamari was good (came w/tomato sauce) as with the toscana soup (comparable w/Olive Garden). Good stuff Maynard!

*****

Just went there for the first time, wow this was great food at very reasonable prices. Service was quick too. I had the Bella Ciao chicken and it was delicious!

*****

This is really the most underrated Italian restaurant in the north metro. We had Bella Ciao chicken (lemon capers artichoke prosciutto chicken) which was a 10! Also had gnocchi with Italian sausage (and mushrooms and onions) in a delicious rosa, another 10! They gave free cheese bread before the meal, and free bread sticks with the meal. I can't believe the value. Tell your friends! Wow!

*****

Quick lunch...for my 1st experience I was pleasantly surprised...I'll be back to try them again!!

*****

Great place excellent food. ).

*****

GO GO GO! I can't say enough! I'm a picky person and have written many reviews and am brutally honest. THIS PLACE IS AUTHENTIC. I had manicotti husband had ravioli. EXCELLENT from food to service.

*****

I ordered the Fra Diavolo and it was perfectly spicy and full of flavor. The portion size was large and very filling. The atmosphere of the workers was very friendly professional and attentive. Alex was so welcoming and kind. I can't wait to bring a partner and share this space with them! Would highly recommend.

*****

Pleasantly surprised, food was excellent. The capers and artichokes gave this dish the pizazz of fine dining.

*****

Excellent all the way around!

*****

We have had take out from here a while back and it was really good. We decided to stop in for lunch and everything was awesome!

It wasn't that busy so we were seated right away. They have a lunch menu with smaller portions than the dinner menu, but they are still great portions.

I had the Shrimp Diavolo and my wife had the same thing, but subed the shrimp for chicken. Both of ours were super delicious. Lots and lots of garlic with just the right amount of zing. I also had a side of cesar salad which was pretty good. The waiter also brought us some garlic cheese bread with marinara sauce on the house, which was super nice of him to do for no reason. The garlic cheese bread was delicious and will definitely get that next time.

Definitely worth going here for lunch or dinner. We will be back.

*****

Excellent food and even better staff! Great addition to this area

*****

Good Italian food at reasonable prices

*****

Great experience all around! Excellent customer service. Delicious food. Well order from Bella Ciao again!

*****

So, so good! We ordered DoorDash and the food arrived hot and tasted amazing! We especially loved the Garlic Bread with Cheese and the Manicotti and will definitely stop by for dine in soon!

*****

I can not believe it took me so long to visit Bella Ciao. I met a friend for dinner there this week and had a wonderful experience. The waiter was great and the food was delicious. I will definetly be back. What a gem.

*****

Good portion sizes

*****

Great food, prices and service. Incredibly kind waiter and some of the best cheesecake and tiramisu Ive ever had.

*****

Food was really good. Complimtary garlic cheese bread for the table. Ordered Zuppa Toscana and the Bella Ciao Chicken (similar to saultimboca). Food came quickly and well prepared. Our server came back with parmesan in a shaker rather than fresh - found that a bit subpar. And then our server never came back to refill drinks or check on us. A couple other tables also had to flag him down for refills and take home containers. So food was easily 4.5 but tonight's service was maybe a 3.

*****

Great food, great service, the food comes out quick even when they are busy! Love the cheese bread!

*****

Omg...absolutely delicious food! Quaint restaurant and food and service fabulous.

Family run business. Absolutely everything was delicious. Started with calamari & caprese salad - both excellent. Ordered chicken carbonara & salmon with fettuccine alfredo. Strong rich flavors in both and the white sauce were not too rich or buttery, like other places. Complimentary garlic toast at the beginning with bread sticks with the meal. Wine and food are both very reasonably priced, too!

I rarely write reviews, but this place deserves an excellent write-up even if it means everyone finds out about this hidden gem!

*****

Delicious food. Wonderful menu choices. Service excellent and very friendly. Definitely worth the trip and return visit.

*****

Delicious chicken marsala, soft bread sticks, tasty Alfredo and fluffy red garlic mashed potatoes!

*****

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. The food is fantastic and they often have specials that recombine their ingredients/menu items. Service can be a bit slow at times but my fiance and I enjoy the atmosphere so much we hardly notice. Highly recommend

*****

The food is really tasty and good quality. Highly recommend. The staff is very nice and attentive.

*****

Great Italian food their neighborhood bar.

*****

Tasty dishes and friendly service. I could do without the distracting TVs. Good variety. Pesto cream sauce was delicious. The cake for dessert was decadent.

*****

The restaurant isn't real big but the food was very good. We had a group of 10 people and they did a great job of serving our group. The place is very popular and was full the day we went. It was buzzy with chatter and people having a good time and as such was a bit noisy but everyone seemed to enjoy the place.

*****

Great Italian food, great service, and fair pricing. Love this place so much and it was only our first time. We plan on returning in the near future!

*****

This location was off the freeway and very close to a destination I deliver to. Entering the restaurant, a lovely aroma of Italian food greets you. Nice artwork on the walls and TV's above the bar. They give cheese bread and have an excellent menu of traditional foods. I personally ordered the spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread. It was amazing and the meatballs were perfectly seasoned and soft. The food was fairly priced and the waitresses provided excellent service. Not to mention they were also very cute. I highly recommend this business.

*****

Went there for lunch today. The food was fantastic! Our server was very attentive and friendly. Will definitely be going back and bringing our friends.

*****

I've ordered from Bella Ciao through DoorDash several times, but only recently went there for the first time. It's a cozy and charming restaurant, and their Baked Gnocchi and Sausage is absolutely amazing! Their Bella Ciao Salad is also delicious. My friend enjoyed her Manicotti, but the gnocchi is where it's at for me :)

*****

Best Itialian Ive ever had. I keep going back to try something new every time. Every meal in my opinion is spot on. You can tell everything is home made. Nothing from a can. Service could be a little more attentive on refills, but the food makes up for it.

*****

Quaint little place with WONDERFUL food AND service!!! Wish I could give the food and service more than 5 stars!!!

*****

Amazing food! Loved every dish we got in our party of four. The shrimp scampi linguine was the best I've had in a very long time. Beats Olive Garden by a very long shot! Great job Bella Ciao. We will for sure be back for more!

*****

Fabulous! The food is so delicious and the service was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Italian food. The portions are big so bring your appetite.

*****

My husband and I are always trying new places. They had 2 peace doing the service and waitstaff and I'm not sure how many doing the cooking. The staff is so friendly, kind and respectful. The food was absolutely delicious!! The cheese bread was fresh and hot. It was pretty busy for a Tuesday night and they kept up. I will definitely be back to try more wonderful things on their menu. The hubs had the Chicken Marsala with spaghetti. The sauce for the marsala was sweet and delicious. I had the Chicken Alfredo. The sauce was nice and creamy and the chicken was tender. Anyone looking for a good Italian restaurant, this is your place. The ambiance is beautiful with murals of Venice and Rome and a plate of muscles. You would love it!!

*****

Great atmoshphere. Great food. Great staff. Very pleasant experience. Especially liked the Calamari.

*****

I'm excellent place to take a girlfriend now if I only had a girlfriend.

*****

Go there frequently. Nice neighborhood Italian in a strip mall.

*****

Really good Italian food. Had the Bella Ciao Chicken. 2 breasts wrapped in prosciuto with capers in a creamy white sauce. Delicious. Appetizers included Calamari. Also delicious.

You should try this place. Was busy after 6 on weekend.

*****

Surprisingly good.

*****

Great food and good service

*****

One of the best Italian restaurants I have ever found. Dont let the exterior fool you. The food is to die for!!!! The Chicken Carbonara is an absolute knock out. I would give it 6 stars if I could.

*****

We had a wonderful first experience tonight at Bella Chao! Food and service was excellent. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a new place to try. Top notch! We will be back for sure!

*****

Very nice to have this restaurant close to home! Each visit has been enjoyable! Good Food!

*****

I had Fra Diovolo and it was fabulous. Not to spicy but spicy enough. The meatballs are excellent as well. I would definitely go here again. Great meal on a cold winter night.

*****

GO! GO! GO! I just can't say enough about our delicious manicotti and ravioli we had!! AUTHENTIC Italian cooking. The garlic cheese garlic bread was scrumptious. The service was excellent. We had an awesome date night!! Thank you so much to all the kind staff especially the chef!!

*****

Amazing food and service! A hidden neighborhood find.

*****

great find thanks to a gift card given to us by a friend. this place is special , a real gem in town

*****

We tried your Restaurant for the first time this evening. Wow it was Excellent! Thank you for the Doordash Deliver Service as well. We ordered the Spaghetti and Meatballs, Lasagna, Extra Meatballs and Cheese Curds. We will definitely be ordering from you again!

*****

The service was very friendly. My husband had the lasagna and said wasn't bad, but it had a different taste to it. I had the small Caesar salad and it was a good size portion. The garlic bread with mozzarella was very good, although it didn't have much of a garlic flavor. Overall it was a nice meal.

*****

We really enjoyed the food, staff and atmosphere. Will be back for sure!!

*****

Wonderful service. Fantastic food!

*****

Amazing staff and delicious Italian food! Will be back again and again and again!

*****

As a truck driver I'm always on the lookout for a good little spots to have a solid meal. That being said, this place was great I ordered the chicken marsala with linguini Alfredo as a side with the meal was cheese bread with house made marinara and bread sticks. The attention to detail o. The house made sauces were telling and made it such a great experience. Thanks to all of you I'll be back when I'm in town next.

*****

Wow! I had no expectations going to eat here. My son wanted pasta for dinner on his 8th birthday so I did a quick Google search and this little gem popped up. We were very happy with the customer service and the quality of their food. We ordered a few different options and were not disappointed at all! If you want fresh delicious pasta I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place!! try the gnocchi, it was superb!

*****

The Gnocchi with a sausage was exceptional. Amazing food and a great atmosphere! Highly recommend!

*****

The food tasted amazingly fresh and flavorful! Jamie was an excellent server! The entire family enjoyed the dinner!

*****

The food here is excellent. Not large portions but plenty. I feel for an Italian restaurant the bread could be a little better, but Im part Italian a little picky with my bread. The waiter was probably my biggest disappointment though friendly she did not check on us very often. Felt like a solid four stars.

*****

Perfect calamari

*****

Great food, wonderful service, welcoming atmosphere. We stopped at Bella Ciao on an impulse. They had no open tables but there was room at the bar, which had enough spacing to make dining comfortable.

Jessica and Xavier were very helpful and friendly, and our food arrived in a timely manner (even though they were very busy). The serving size was large enough for us to end up with a box to take home for lunch tomorrow.

We are planning on eating there again and are very happy to have Bella Ciao in the neighborhood.

*****

Definitely one to visit again

*****

Great food and excellent service. We often go here and have never been disappointed.

*****

Excellent soup, Zuppa Toscana.
Had Chicken Ceasars salad with perfectly cooked chicken breast.
Server was very attentive and nice.
Nice selection of beers and wine available as well.
Will be back!

*****

Very good food..... support local biz

Very, very good food. Service was great. Prices are reasonable. Portions are generous. Everything tastes fresh and well prepared. Very clean and comfortable restaurant. Will definitely be back multiple times. Support local. Loved our experience.

*****

Amazing food and great service. We have been here a few times now and I would highly recommend the cheese bread, the chicken carbonara, and the tiramisu!

*****

Tonight was our first visit, and it will definitely not be our last! I'm already thinking about lunch tomorrow. The food is amazing, love the side selections with the entrees. If you are looking at lower carbs, for example, you can select green beans rather than pasta. Having said that, their pasta is wonderful. Everything we ordered was excellent and plentiful. We had the Bella Ciao Chicken, Chicken Parmigiana, Fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp and Penne Cardinale. Service was great too and our waiter gave us some great dinner suggestions. I can't wait to go back!

*****

Food was Excellent

*****

The food was great and the server was working hard to take care of everyone.

*****

Our waitress, Jessica, was fantastic! She was so cheerful and personable. First visit to the restaurant and definitely not our last. Jessicas recommendations did not disappoint. The flavor of everything we had was outstanding! We shared a spicy red pasta and shrimp dish as well as a cream sauce, chicken bacon and peas dish. We ate every last bite! Cant wait to tell everyone about this amazing place! Great place for a fun date night. Very relaxing Music was wonderful atmosphere was fun. Definitely worth checking out!

This restaurant is a smaller place set just off 694 at Century. We had a big group (15) and they set us up at 2 tables for kids and adults. It was clear they were under-staffed like most. We enjoyed our time together and service was good considering. Most thought the food was excellent. Thanks for the good meal!

*****

Good food

*****

What a nice surprise, finding delicious Italian food close to home. We had the chicken parietal with a side of spaghetti, chicken parm with a side of fettuccine, Bella Ciao chicken and penne Cardinale, and all were excellent. $3 wine Wednesday wad a nice surprise! Excellent service, delicious food and reasonable prices. We will definitely be back!

*****

So mad we waited so long to try this place. Absolutely amazing food, perfect portion sizes and good service. Forget about that chain olive garden nonsense, head to Bella Ciao instead!!!

*****

A nice hotel that allowed us quick easy access to the expressway.

*****

Great service & salads were crisp Salmon with spinach (sauted spinach lemon butter& capers) served with fettuccini Alfredo was delicious. Chicken parmigiana (bruschetta mix, marinara & mozzarella) served with side of spaghetti was also delicious. We will return.

Fantastic food and great drinks. Chris was a great server!

*****

Chris was a very kind server. Food was all insanely delicious, the garlic bread could be considered addictive.

*****

Great dining experience! Food was super tasty and reasonably priced and the service (Chris) was professional and courteous. The margarita made by Chris was a hit at our table!!

*****

The best food.

*****

Place is cute and very nice staff. Food is great. Very reasonable prices.

*****

Incredible authentic style Italian food with burgers and cheese curds?! Am I dreaming? Its safe to say my boyfriend and I will be loyal customers for life. The food is outstanding

*****

Visited Thursday evening. Enjoyed the Chicken Carbonara and for some reason was drawn to the garlic mash potato's. Oh my God both were heaven. The quality of the food is so amazing. You will have to look twice to find as it is in a small strip mall but find it. Was soooo good!!!!!

*****

Great food and excellent customer service!!! Highly recommended this new restaurant. Our server Wilmer was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back!

*****

This place is a hidden gem. The food was amazing and the service was top notch. We had been hearing great things about this restaurant so we finally decided to give it a try. We will definitely be back and we will encourage others to visit as well. Our server Wilmer was awesome!!!

*****

Incredible service! The manicotti was amazing! We will definitely be back!

*****

W.O.W. Get the glass of wine, itll be worth it! We had the manicotti and chicken parmigiana. Comes with amazing garlic cheese bread to start then delicious garlic bread with the meals. Absolutely coming back.

*****

Great Italian food with generous portions. Service is excellent and chef Edward is outstanding.

*****

This place is INCREDIBLE! To be honest, growing up with Italian culture, I was skeptical. I mean its in a strip mall and its been several restaurants before this one. I went with my mom and aunt last minute, and we were all blown away. Every single one of us said it was some of the best Italian food weve ever had! The pasta is super tasty, the service was great, and the bread beforehand was a bonus. Cant wait to return!

*****

Fabulous little find, will definitely go back. The staff was funny and nice. The food was warm and good. Great drinks, warm environment.

*****

Great customer service! AWESOME food! I would highly recommend this spot to anyone! Thank you Bella Ciao servers, bartenders, and cooks!

*****

Great salmon dish - try it!

*****

Great food. Everyone should try this hidden gem.

*****

Food was delicious! Staff was friendly and kind.

*****

Penne cardinale was very delicious

*****

My husband ordered chicken wings and dummies (rubbed). They were overdone and quite chewy. Not much detectable flavor to the rub. I ordered a kid's size spaghetti with meatballs to taste test as it was said to be the same sauce and meatballs as the regular size. It was disappointing. I also ordered the side dish of fresh steamed green beans. Now that was large size $6.99,, and excellent and hence the 4 stars rather than 3. We will give them another try by ordering full dinners next trip -- probably their Salmon with Spinach (19.99) and the Chicken Parmigiana (16.99). Prices are average but we will be looking for better flavors to keep us coming back.

Absolutely wonderful food in a lovely little restaurant. They were full on a Tuesday evening, which is not usual in restaurants. My daughter's salmon and spinach and my chicken marsala were perfect -- yum! A real gem of a place.

*****

We went at 1:30 on a Sunday and was one of 2 couples in the place. Server was super friendly and the food was alright. No real reason to go back

*****

I rarely review a place. But...we have gone to Bella Ciao maybe 4 times now since they opened. Excellent service, friendly staff, and good eats.

We have done salads, kids meals, some of the apps, and at least a couple of the entrees.

Highly recommend!

*****

Food was great! Good prices, friendly staff. Highly recommend.

*****

So good! Great service, delicious cheese bread. I had the shrimp scampi, my friend had the chicken parmesan- she's super picky and absolutely loved it! Great little place, looking forward to going back

*****

Very small restaurant, but very nice dcor, everything my family and I ate was amazing, taste and portion size. Mom had gluten free pasta with Marinara, dad had Chicken and pasta, mine was Spicy shrimp in marinara with penna pasta. And finally we had tiramisu one of the best that I've had.

This is a must try and hidden Gem, Chris our server was great!

*****

As someone in the service industry, I know great service when I receive it! This place is incredible. From the food, to the service, to the atmosphere. The presentation was incredible. The server Chris was February friendly and attentive. We will be back!

*****

This place is such a hidden gem! Great service from Chris and great food! I had the diavolo with chicken, it was delicious! Will definitely be back.

*****

Great new addition! Please try it!

*****

I recommend you make a reservation, as they were very busy the evening we visited, a Wednesday. We totally enjoyed our dining experience. Our server, Chris, carried a heavy load as he was also tending bar. The service was excellent in spite of this. All the food was cooked fresh and you could tell that quality ingredients were used. We had the Chicken Marsala and the Linguine Pesto chicken. Both were very good choices. We enjoyed an excellent wine in the Moscato Primo Amore.
We saved room for dessert, and were glad we did.
We had Tiramisu and Chocolate cake. Both were rich and flavorful. We had leftovers from dinner and dessert.
Enjoy!

The margaritas and food was wonderful

I finally checked out this place I've been driving by for months. And I should have gone there sooner! It was so good! I always order spaghetti and meatballs at new Italian restaurants to check out there red sauce and we have a winner. It was so delicious. House wines are $3.00 on Wednesdays, and that was good also. Cute place! Will definitely go back again, sooner this time!

*****

I have eaten here twice now, and each time has me excited to come back again. I have tried many new restaurants, but this is one that I am excited to keep coming back to and highly recommend. Love the spaghetti and meatballs, fra diavolo, and really excited to try the white sauces as well! Glad to have a good new place to eat!

*****

Had dinner tonight for the first time. Three of us and 3 different items. Chicken Marsala was fabulous with side of spaghetti. Shrimp Scampi with Linguini was perfect and a very clean plate was all that was left. Fra Diavolo was excellent and custom made with chicken instead of shrimp. And the complementary cheese bread sticks rocked. Thank you for a great dinner and great service. Please dont ever leave!!!!

*****

I had the best pasta dish tonight that I have had in years. The shrimp scampi linguini was the best Ive ever had. I highly recommend this new place. It is wonderful!

*****

The food was awesome and the service fantastic. We will be going there again.

*****

We tried Bella Ciao for the first time with some friends and were very pleased with the service, the atmosphere, and of course the food. My Chicken Carbonara was excellent and we gave thumbs up on the Meatball Sandwich, Shrimp Scampi with Linguine, and Ravioli. The bread sticks were great and the complimentary appetizer of garlic bread with mozzarella and marinara was a delicious way to start off a delicious dinner. We will be back.

*****

The food and service was great!

TRIED 12 DIFFERENT THINGS FROM APPETIZERS TO DESERT AND DRINKS. ALL 5 STARS INCLUDING SERVICE.

*****

Food is amazing!!!! I had lemon chicken with spaghetti as a side. Spaghetti sauce is chunky and fantastic. They start with garlic cheese bread, with dipping sauce. It is complimentary. Portions are great. All meals on our table were excellent in size, everyone enjoyed.

*****

Seemed short staffed but the only bartender/waiter was able to balance the tables pretty well. Food quality was very good. Pricing same to slightly more than Donatelli's down the street.

*****

So delicious

*****

Good Italian food!!! A little on the more expensive side, but worth it! Everything is fresh and so much flavor. The marinara is thick and chunky and delicious. Will recommend to anyone!!!!

*****

This is a fairly new restaurant and has time to grow into itself. The excellent customer service and cuisine makes up for the slapped together feel of the decoration. The staff was so friendly and inviting that it made my family and me feel right at home. Cloth napkins are a nice touch!!
I totally recommend this place and will be coming back!

*****

We've been there twice and our food was delicious both times!

Found it while looking for a delivery Italian joint in google maps. Don't trust google by the way, Doordash and such doesn't in my opinion make a restaurant a delivery joint...

Anyways, I called in an order for takeout. The food was ready in about 10 minutes as the gentleman had said, and was still fresh and hot. I asked how long the place has been there and he said 2 months.

I then made the 7 minute drive home.

The breadsticks were still reasonably soft after getting home and the Chicken Carbonara was spectacular. The sauce was a tad thin but not to the point of being broken. More importantly, the sauce coated ALL the food. This is of high importance to me as many other joints serve up dry noodles.

I'll definitely be going back to try other meal options but for now I recommend the Chicken Carbonara.

Server was absolutely amazing and food was delicious!

Wonderful service and fabulous food.

Pretty high quality food. The service was quick and friendly. Prices fit the quality and serving sizes. Some dishes aren't true Italian, but they are modified to hit an American palette.

*****

Food was very good. Service was outstanding. Was not busy.

*****

Sooooo good. Everything was top notch

*****

The food was amazing. I ordered shrimp scampi, I love shrimp and this is probably my favorite shrimp dish! I also had a Caesar salad and it was amazing! The dressing was amazing. And the croutons were delectable. The service was also great, and I am so glad I went here. Over all it was delectable and great service, I really do recommend coming here.

*****

I had the lemon chicken with capers and a side of fettuccine Alfredo and everything was really good. The chicken was very moist and buttery and lemony. The Cesar salad was decent. My boyfriend liked the Buffalo wings he said they were slightly over cooked but he still enjoyed them. He requested all flats when we ordered on Grubhub and they did it.

*****

Absolutely delicious!!
