don't waste your hard earned money, go to Carrabas

Terrible all around. We waited half hour for table and was not offered drink or a seat. The bread was burnt and cold. The server looked like she wanted a bullet in her brain and the staff was ambivalent. The rum and coke was $8.00 and small and everything was ala carte', which is Ok for high quality, this was not.We go the crab toast app and it was two teeny pieces of the same cold, burnt bread we had with dinner and the crab was good, but about the size of a half dollar and was cold. Not good for $12.00My wife got the 12 Oz. Steak Pizziola and it was maybe 7 oz. at best. The rissoto was a big glop of goo that looked like oatmeal and no salad, but about 3 or 4 red peppers in a tasteless marinara that tasted like puree with parsley. All this for $26.00I got the lobster ravioli for $24.00 and got 4 little ravioli that were cold and tough. No discernable lobster meat as it was ground up and looked like tuna fish when I opened one up. The sherry reduction had congealed, so it sat for awhile before it was served. All in all, it su_ked. Waitress checked on us once in the hour + we were there, and for $85 we could've gotten a much better meal at Carraba's and had about 4 drinks each. Carraba's is always good and their Sirloin Marsala for $18.00 with a salad and side is FAR SUPERIOR to the garbage served at Ciao Bella and Carraba's Lobster Ravioli for $17 is far superior, has real pieces of lobster, about 12 ravioli's and is served hot with salad and a side. Plus, the service as far above Bella's and the people are nice.What a waste of $95, plus $10 to park. I tipped $10 and she's lucky she got that. Iccck!!!

Making a last impression each and every time

I have to say, Chef Gambino gets it right each and every time. From the first time I moved to Baltimore back in 2007, the place has definitely hit a note with me. I moved down from NY, where food is superb, but after trying Ciao Bella for the first time, I would say they have taken a bit of the Big Apple and placed it here in Little Italy Md. The atmosphere is inviting and the staff makes you feel like a guest in their home. I have done lunch on the run and sat down for an evening on the town, and each time feels like an experience. I have a bias to the Penne Carbonara, but have ventured at lunch to try different soups, salads and entrees. A must try on any trip to Baltimore or just an evening out to impress. You wont be disappointed...and even might run into me.

STAY AWAY!!!! OWNER IS A SCUMBAG AND A CROOK!!

I booked the rehearsal dinner for my wedding here several months in advance. I signed a contract and paid a $500 deposit. The WEEK BEFORE the wedding, he called my fiancee and said he double booked and had to cancel us!!! He took another party on short notice because they had more people than us. He has yet to return our deposit check! We then had to find a restaurant downtown the week before our wedding in June that could take a reservation for 40 and was reasonably priced. This guy is the worst restaurant owner in all of Baltimore.

The best of the best in Little Italy

What a wonderful night we had at Ciao Bella. Tony the owner and chef was super accommodating for 26 people. The banquet room was beautifully laid out. The food was enjoyed by all. Food pricing was good and drinks were great. Vallet parking was a plus. Cia Bella is a warm and inviting find. Hope to go back soon. If you are in Little Italy to dine and don't pick Ciao Bello it is your loss. Our Yacht Club thought you did a great job.
Thank you all at Ciao Bella,
M.B Vice Commodore

This Place is Going Down Hill Fast....

I travel for work about 40 weeks a year and eat at a lot of restaurants. This is the worst place I have ever ""tried"" to eat a meal. I had eaten here before so I said let's try it. My wife, 2 year old son and I went on a Sunday night. The hotel concierge said Sundays were not busy and we did not need a reservation. We showed up at the restaurant and were told to wait in the bar, it would be about 15 minutes. Two other groups showed up after us without reservations (3 adults, 2 kids and an infant) and 4 adults. Our table was right next to the host station and we overheard every conversation. The host (who was the owner) seated the group of 6 first (we said OK, maybe they had a 6-top open up), but then he was seating the group of 4 and leaned down and told us that ""they were busy back there so he would just set us up at the table we were at in the bar"". This might have been OK 45 minutes earlier, but not after he seated 2 groups ahead of us. Besides, who wants to feed their child in a bar. So we told him no way and after a heated argument about how rude he was, we walked out (the door was loose and banged on the way out). Then, he followed us out into the street and started calling me an *ss and told my wife that she married an *ss. There is absolutely no excuse for a restaurant owner to A) treat customers like that and B) to yell those kinds of comments at us at the top of his lungs on the street. Please find somewhere else to go. If you don't want to put up with things his way, you are in for a very rude treatment. We went a half a block down the street to Germano Tratorias and had a great meal and great service. Go there instead.

Great Food, Excellent Service

Ciao Bella has the best Italian food my Fiance and I have ever had. The service was outstanding and the owner had a true interest in how our experience was. Not only would I recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone, I plan on taking my parents there as well. Go to Ciao Bella, I promise you wont be sorry you did.

One of our favorites

My husband and I have enjoyed going to Ciao Bella's for several years now. We don't go anywhere else in Little Italy. Usually we go for a special occation like our anniversary or one of our birthdays however we have also taken other people there including my entire family for my parents 50th anniversary and our bass fishing club for the annual banquet. Whether it has been a group of people or just the two of us, we have always had excellent service and fine food and wine. If you get down to Little Italy, say hello to Tony, the owner. He can be found out on the street greeting guests, behind the bar mixing drinks or just wandering around the restaurant making sure his guests are happy. If you try Ciao Bella's, we hope you have as good a time as we do.
