I come here at least once a week and have never had a meal I didn't like. Fresh-baked bread, expertly prepared pasta and and extensive wine selection. The 3 course lunch set is a superb value.

I love Italian food, and ciao bella was above expectations. My carbonara was extremely delicious. I also loved the reception with a glass of champagne.

We sat on the first floor. The wait staff was very attentive and made sure we were well cared for. The owner dropped by and offered menu selections he thought we would like.
