At Mohegan Sun for a conference. We were pleased by our meal. The Zappa Di Pesca was quite good. Terrific mussels. Definitely worth a try if you are on this incredible property

In a good way, we felt as if we were dining in a basement ristorante in Rome. First timers, we were a little nonplussed when we were led to what seemed like a back room. It turned out to be not only a beautiful but quiet area that was free of the cigarette smoke that pervades the section of the... More

Came to have farewell dinner for a co-worker. Had been here before and the food was as good as before. Servings are small though. We were running late. After a while someone came to us stated generally they allow us to stay for 2 hours especially on concert night so if we can order now-well they had not asked us... More

We just left Ballo after having a two hour sitting and as always, the best meals in southeastern, Ct. From the apps. Meatballs, Calamari and the mussels, to the Pork chop, the shrimp and scallops, and the shrimp scampi this is the restaurant to visit. The service is always second to none and our waitperson "Nicole M" certainly made sure... More

Recently had dinner at Ballo. The Shrimp and Scallop dish was nothing to write home about. Only two scallops and two shrimp with lots of polenta and sprouts. My friend had Rigatoni with sausage - only where was the sausage? Again nothing to write home about. The best part of the meal was the Ricotta Fritters. They were hot and... More

Lovely private room for family gathering of 14 people from 5-year old to 91-year old. Needed to have no gluten, no dairy, no mushrooms, no peppers, no asparagus, all vegetarian dishes. Jody, the waiter, kindly and professionally catered to all our disparate needs. Food and service were excellent!

If you want great food in a classy environment without breaking the bank, Ballo is the place for you. Portions are huge and the food is exactly what you would expect from a higher end Italian restaurant. I ordered the chicken parmigiana, which was one of the less expensive entrees at $27. It came with two large pieces of chicken... More

Description
Inspired by San Galgano in the hills of Tuscany, BALLO Italian Restaurant brings to life all the majesty of an Italian cathedral coupled with exceptional service and a fresh, authentic menu of Italian favorites. To start, guests will enjoy an extensive by-the-glass wine list and specialty BALLO cocktails while sitting in a stunning environment replete with arches, stone, sensual accents and multiple private spaces. The food at BALLO adds yet another level of celebration. Owner John Tunney is committed to fresh, locally grown produce and innovative Italian staples you can eat from Noon to Midnight, "I've always loved the idea of a pantry. A place where you are watching the freshest ingredients being prepared with the least amount of touch by the best pair of hands - and delivered in an open area as if you're in someone's kitchen."
