Great Italian restaurant in Little Italy! Went on a date night with my fiance here a couple weeks back and had such a romantic lovely evening. The service was great. The fried calamari was delicious. We both got the Frutte de Mare, which was amazing. We couldn't finish it all. Best leftovers I've had in a long time. Highly recommend.

The food is ridiculously good. I gladly travel over an hour just for the seafood tetrazzini. Tony always makes you feel like you are his personal special guest. And the staff is always upbeat and attentive. It's always a good time at Ciao Bella. There's no place like it. I couldn't recommend it more!

Never go there again. Look truth is if you want authentic Italian food this is not the place. Way over priced for food you can buy at the frozen isle in a supermarket . I am an experienced restaurant goer, not your big name, big chain restaurant eater. Normally, I don't give terrible reviews if I truly didn't feel strongly about the whole overall experience.

Last evening we visited this restaurant in Little Italy. I had seen some of the mixed previous reviews but my friend wanted to try it out. We arrived and were greeted by the non complimentary valet parking . For those of you who aren’t familiar with Little Italy parking is at a premium in the area. After entering we were greeted graciously and immediately seated having a reservation. .It did not take long for the waiter to come to the table . Service was good.The waiter was attentive but there seemed to be long periods between courses.We sat down at 6:30, ordered drinks and had appetizers. The main course arrived at 8 pm. We were not in a hurry but it was too long to wait. The Lamb meatball appetizer was very good with a hearty red sauce. The Caesar salad was also enjoyable as was the escargot. For mains we had the Seafood tetrazini which was heavy and bland. Think noodles Alfredo with shrimp and crab. One of our guests had the ravioli which was bland and tasteless. Chicken Marzala was the other entree and was over done in a heavy sauce. No dessert was ordered.

My co-workers and I stopped in last week for dinner , was actually my 2nd time there as originally food was descent . We occassionally do a girls night out to relax. The chicken Marsella was a little tuff, calamari was good and eggplant very good. Disappointing was the owner as he is very annoying and too touchy . We go out to relax not be annoyed . Our waiter can't remember his name but had a nice accent and very attentative and professional. The owner introduced himself as Tony whom I had met before and this was for my friends; they were very diappointed with his unprofessional behavior my one friend commented "it's like he is out to get laid by any female that walks in there " . His over abundant behavior was annoying he needs to take lessons from his staff on professionalism ,

No I don't use coupons and I think people who do seem to be the ones who always have a problem! My wife and friends have been going to Tony's for over 20 years, never have we had a bad meal, his veal dish is as good as any 5 star in Manhattan! We enjoy the way the meal is served maybe to slow for some, or maybe they think its MacDonald's, Hon! But if you want Real Great Italian food served the way it should be this is the place.! ,For those who need food now go get a heart stopping burger, and for sure don't go to Italy because they take the art of dining seriously.

How is this place Zagat rated? First of all the owner Tony definitely had a few drinks in him,the service was EXTREMELY slow,waited about 40 minutes just for an appetizer then another 30 for our entrees.. No soup or salad was offered in between to help the void. The tortellini was bland and had no taste,asked the waiter for bread that never came. If your a couple looking for a nice night out I'd recommend to walk across the street to Amiccis. There only attentive to larger parties.
