The best Italian food we have tasted is from Bella ciao. I took some Italian friends for dinner and they told me that the pizzas of Bella ciao are more authentic traditional ones. The service is also excellent. Great experience. Saisankar

Since it is in the open, the fans are not very effective. Service and food is above average. Good place to spend time if you can bare the Chennai heat

It's a good Italian restaurant. Good ambiance. Food was tasty. I only felt the hostess was not that welcoming. It's a bit expensive.
