Ciao Bella

After Emily has been bugging us to try this restaurant for months, we finally ate at Ciao Bella tonight. We almost didn’t go after looking at their menu online. It seems only some of the dinner menu is put on their site. We were a little nervous when we got there because there were only two other parties there. The feel of the restaurant was very comfortable and given that it was blazing hot outside we were thankful that the shades were pulled down, making the place pretty dark.

Our server greeted us quickly and took our drink orders. He was very friendly and suggested a couple of delicious sounding appetizers (maybe next time).

I had the raviolis and Dawn had the Shrimp Scampi. Emily had a Chicken Caesar salad and Makenzy had Spagetti. All the meals were awesome!

The food was excellent. It was a little pricey but the portions were huge. When we go back we will likely split two entrees among the four of us.

The service was superb. The staff was very friendly and made a lot of great recommendations. Our server did everything right, he treated our daughters like real customers, served ladies first, didn’t “auction” our food to us, engaged us in the perfect amount of small talk.

We highly recommend Ciao Bella, at 5646 N. Pershing, just north of Robinhood. YOu can find them online at
