This restaurant was on our summer "bucket list" to try. The atmosphere was very nice inside and outside. We noticed plenty of servers and support staff. Our server was top-notch! Suzi seemed to want our first experience to be one of many. She was attentive...More

Will definitely be dining here again next time I'm in Port Clinton! Our server Suzi was particularly great and the food was excellent. Monday night is spaghetti and meatball night. Loved eating at Ciao Bella.

We had an impromptu dinner gathering with no food in the house...a half-hour order from Ciao Bella saved the evening! Wonderful food, quick turnaround and really convenient from Catawba Island or Marblehead. A little pricey - but the food is always high quality.

The food at Ciao Bella is very good as well as relatively authentic Italian. The atmosphere is dark and spacious but outside dining is also available. While the service is friendly, it tends to be rather slow. Every Thursday eve Ciao Bella has $5 pizza...More
