About Ciao Bella Restaurant
May seem obvious saying Italian Food but these dishes tasted like food served in Italy, not the stodgy food you get in some restaurants. Simple dishes but with fantastic taste.
Amazing little Gem in Burnside
It was my first time trying Ciao Bella and I have to say I can’t wait to go back! The food was amazing, so fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff were lovely and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
I can’t recommend this restaurant enough!
