    Great restaurant, food and service outstanding. Only complaint would be the level of noise which was too loud. Won’t stop us from going back

    Energetic… loud sports bar level for a fine dining establishment. REALLY took away from the experience. Server was nice enough and professional and pacing was ok. Caesar salad was good. Salmon piccata was way overcooked and dry and there weren’t the capers I expected. Asparagus was well prepared and tasty. Would not return.

    Loved the food and service but the noise level was over the top....we were literally shouting at each other to hear....some acoustical ceiling tiles would sure help.

    We had an outstanding meal, three of us. But even though we were back in a corner it was plenty loud. Regardless, both the food and the service were excellent (but not cheap!)

    Caio Bella is a fantastic restaurant but I wish there was something they could do about the noise level. We had to practically scream at each other during dinner to hear ourselves. Service really shined, as always.

    It is mostly busy at night so I would recommend booking in advance otherwise you will have to wait. We had booked and still waited for 10 minutes extra. Food was nice and staff is friendly and nice. I like that they allow you to order smaller portion of the mains. After having bruschetta and drinks we were kind of full to have the main course. So I ordered small size of the main. It is decent to fill after having some drinks and appetizers. I ordered spicy crab spaghetti and it was nice. Lemon, chillies and mint give a zing to the crab. I would definitely recommend going there. Only thing I don’t like is its noisy. So if you like quieter places or want a place you could talk than just eat then you may ask them to sit at the back or go somewhere else. But I think it was worth the experience. Food was good and drinks also tasted good.
