Carlos made us a table side Cesar salad right at the bar where we were seated. It was fabulous. Thank you Carlos! The margaritas were also fabulous and we are grateful to our bartender, though we don't recall his name.

A very nice bar and place to sit. We also ordered the calamari but did not like it. Dried out. We'd return for the salad and margaritas though!

I came here for a late dinner before a night at Foxwoods (excellent proximity) and was both greeted with a smile and pleasantly surprised at the beauty of this establishment. The sophisticated / rustic theme is very welcoming and beautiful on the eyes. Gio, the bartender, was attentive and possessed a very warm demeanor. My drink was made perfect and they have an amazing bar selection to satisfy anyone. My server, Liza, was so energetic and happy and provided the utmost excellent service. Liza gave great recommendations and is very knowledgeable; she seems to do a little of everything at the restaurant. She is a hard worker who takes so much pride in her work and always stays late to ensure that the restaurant stands up to its high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised to see the vast selection of organic and gluten free meals; it's refreshing to see a place value such quality and cater to those who lead a healthy life. I ordered the caprese salad, which was crisp and fresh and delectable. I also had a custom gluten-free, veggie pizza with mozzarella and words cannot describe how delectable it truly was. I loved being able too see the man making my pizza from my table and even witness the dough being flung into the air so authentically. This was a truly enjoyable experience and I am eager to come back with warmer weather so that I may experience the beautiful patio they have out back. Additionally, my mother is a fine dining server of over 20 years experience and this is her FAVORITE Italian restaurant, which says wonders about this place. Don't miss out.

What a great assortment of fresh pastries and foods, many with a an Asian flair! I would recommend the Japanese cheesecake, but I would have to say that any of their pastries with a cup of coffee in the morning is awesome.

Ballo Italian Restaurant

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."

Our first dining experience at Ballo was outstanding. Manager Rachel, server David, Bar Manager John provided excellent service, really extended themselves. Wonderful atmosphere and decor. Like dining in an old European church. Outstanding and creative menu selections. Gnocchi with pork belly and truffle was fantastic. Wife's swordfish was great. What a top-shelf experience. Would dine there regularly if we lived nearby. Ballo has moved to the top of our list of dining at Mohegan Sun, where ALL fine restaurants are excellent. Highly recommended.

We dined here recently for lunch prior to an event. Wait staff were super friendly and attentve. A very good bar menu and limited but good food offerings. Servers were always there to make suggestions for those with food allergies. No time for dessert but will definitely be back and perhaps we can try them. If they are as good as the regular menu then it will be a hit.
