We had heard good things about this restaurant previously, and finally had a chance to try it for ourselves. We were not disappointed. Top notch service, a very outgoing and visible manager, great and reasonable wine selection and great food! We will be back!

My wife and I had dinner at Ciao Bella during an overnight in Sandusky. It was an excellent choice despite the drive. My wife had the lobster al forno in which the lobster flavor was delicately but clearly infused into the pasta. I had the risotto, which was excellent as well. The service was courteous yet not intrusive. We chose... More

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We were in Port Clinton for a day and wanted something other than fast food. It is located in an area of small shops overlooking a small lake. The interior has a very pleasant atmosphere with fresh linens, comfortable chairs and newer decor. The luncheon special of Pick two for $10.00 had many choices... More

What a wonderful experience! The food was served in courses! Loved the appetizers! Then it was followed by a pasta. We thought we were done then, but this was followed by chicken marsala, spaghetti, and another delicacy! Our taste buds were singing! But no, that was not the end! A caramel/chocolate cake was the dessert! OH my! The server, Kelly,... More

We showed up in this area with reservations at another local restaurant, upon arrival we learned the place we showed up at had no restrooms. On the fly I, contacted Ciao Bella and explained our situation, the staff asked for 1 hour to set us up.... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The service is excellent and the food gets high marks. This is an Italian restaurant but we did not end up getting anything really Italian so I can not comment on their specialty. I can say that their white bean soup is a wonderful starter to the meal. We ordered the Chicken Argo Dolce... More
