we were at WPI for a robotics competition. Our team needed food and quickly. We were able to walk in and less than 15 minutes later we walked away with 10 large grinders and 3 large salads. the staff was great and willing to please. The sandwiches were huge and the salads very satifying. They also give you a great... More

Ciao Bella does more takeout and catering than sit down diners, but that's exactly what we did last week for lunch. There was far too much on the menu, and I'm always the last one to decide. Bread and some kind of salsa dip came first, and wow, it was delicious! Different than the normal garlic oils that most Italian... More

I use to love this place but not anymore. My order was wrong and I had to drive all the way back. Not a big deal but a simple I'm sorry would have been nice. Also tired of paying $16 for just ordinary chicken parmesan.

Order food for a half dozen people for a meeting. Always heard good things about this place. Every person disappointed with their selection. Portions were generous but food the quality of the average pizza parlor. One person said her's was inedible. Won't go again.

Great place for take out or a quick dinner. Very small and not fancy but the food is great. I tend to order the same meals. They give you some bread and marinara sauce to start off with. Wraps are big, sandwitches even larger ( my husband likes the chicken cutlet that is on a half loaf of italian bread).... More

My family frequently orders from this restaurant but we never have taken the time to write a review. We love their Greek salad. We have tried just about every on the menu and everything is prepared deliciously.

This tiny place is a treasure in the Worcester area. Always a great food experience. Service is quick from the open kitchen. This is not a place for atmosphere just for great homemade Italian. We love the antipasto with fantastic balsamic dressing and very crunchy croutons. Hot marinara and focaccia bread is a nice touch. We usually get chicken carciofi... More

This is our go-to spot for pizza in Worcester. We've tried many places and Ciao Bella is the best for your traditional, non-thin crust pizza. My sister really enjoys their salads. And, the main entrees are tasty too. You will get a good meal for a good price.

I've had Ciao Bella twice in the past week. Their Italian grinders are enormous! The veggies are crisp and the bread is crusty to perfection. I had dinner and leftovers for lunch (score!). The waitstaff is extremely friendly. A few days later, I ordered takeout for a few guests and myself. We live on the other side of town and... More

This little spot never disappoints. The portions are huge and value large. The restaurant does a big take out business and there are only 8 tables or so inside. They do have quick, friendly table service available. If you are into food not atmosphere there is a lot to love here. A warm open kitchen almost makes you feel like... More
