We celebrated our anniversary here, and enjoyed the warm bread, veal parmigiana, chicken piccata, tiramasu, and the house chardonnay. Valet parking is available for $10, and the restaurant accepted a $25 coupon that we obtained from Restaurant.com with 650 United frequent flyer miles.

We dropped by Ciao Bella for lunch on a Saturday. Unfortunately, we couldn't order from the lunch menu, so we had to spend a little more money than we expected. Even so, I highly recommend this restaurant. The owner welcomed us like old friends, and the service was great. My freshly made mushroom ravioli tasted fantastic, and the boyfriend enjoyed his HUGE portion of linguine with meatballs. As you'd expect in an Italian restaurant, the wine was awesome, too. All-around satisfying experience at Ciao Bella in Little Italy

Very nice place with pleasant server but for the cost we would not have eaten there if we didn't have a Groupon coupon. The calamari was chewy and too much breading, the Shrimp FRA Diavlo was tasty but very small portion and the Shrimp Ricardo was also tasty but even smaller portion then the Shrimp FRA Diavlo. This is first time in 25 years we have left an Italian restaurant hungry and no left overs. That is why since we moved to Harford County (and found Giovanni's, Casa MIA, Scotti's etc) we very seldom go anywhere else for Italian food as their food is always on point, the service is always great and the portions are twice the size of Ciao Bella's for comparable prices.

We a'll ways go yo little Italy for my daughters birthday
This year we tried ciao Bella boy what a disappointment prices little high but the portions of food really small.
I do believe if you pay 25.00 dollars for a meal an it is mixed seafood it should have more then 2 small shrimp an 1 small
scallop and few pcs.of calamarie.
Even the pastas where skimpy
Well we tried it but never again.
We had a good family night out an it was good friends made the meal better.
There are s lot better places in little Italy to eat Ammiches last year was Great .

There was a group of us and for some reason, the one server we had was very slow. From the the time got there until the time the food was served was 1 1/2 hours! The food was average at best. I would not choose to go back.
