We detoured 30 minutes for the flaming Mac and cheese and it was worth it. The restaurant is fairly pricey but the food is good. Ask to sit in the back to get away from the casino noise. Park in the Winter Garage for easy access.

This is one restaurant that will always payout. No chance of losing here The food is very very good. The service is excellent. The atmosphere takes you away from the casino game room and gives you a great oasis The appetizers were great. Pizzas are well made. Pasta is super. Desserts are deliciouso. I will return.

I reviewed Ballo in 2014, and have been back a number of times, including last weekend, and wanted to update with some additional information which we found interesting: (1) it's open for lunch on Saturday and Sundays, which is a real nice option with its broad menu, which includes a lot of light bites and pizzas which you can enjoy...

I came here for some drinks after a show and had a great experience. My bartender Eric was very attentive, knowledgeable, prompt and friendly. The food here is also very good. It's not a cheap place to dine, but the price is worth the quality experience you receive.

I went to Ballo with high hopes but was let down. The food was lacking salt and flavor for the main dishes. The service however was incredible, and the place had a great vibe that made it enjoyable to sit and relax for a while. The cocktails were great as well. If your expecting a great meal you might be... More

We had a lovely dinner to celebrate Valentine's Day at Ballo, and it met all our expectations and more! This was our third visit, and was just as flawless as the other two experiences. We started with the secret appetizer, and it did not disappoint! Be sure to ask your server. Drinks were amazing as always- the Blood Orange Cosmo... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday night with two other couples and the experience could NOT have been any better. The service was on point, he was present but not overbearing, our drinks were always full, and he was a pleasant server. The food was outstanding and perfectly coursed. I had the caesar salad and it was one of... More

If you have been to Ballos many times there is something special there to be had that is not on the menu! I won't tell the secret here but it's fantastic. The meatballs are a must and the bone in Rib Eye is masterful on each visit. We love the pizza. There olives for the martinis are good but not... More

Friendly staff, amazing food, and the drinks never disappoint. Don't forget to look around (and up), the architecture of the place is very cool. Been before and will go again.

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."
