Ciao Bella has been providing great food and service to Memphis and the greater Mid-south for over 10 years. We have expanded the dinner and dessert menus to greater heights, opened a full service bar & lounge, and built private banquet rooms to cater to our customers needs for a special place to host their birthdays, receptions, bar mitzvahs, corporate functions, and other private gatherings. Whether you prefer to eat in the warm ambiance of our main dining room, enjoy dinner al fresco on our patio, experience a romantic dinner in our Grotto, have a drink while you watch your favorite team play on the big screens in our bar, or host a party in our private banquet room, you will find a warm, inviting atmosphere serving the finest of Italian and Greek cuisine. We do not take reservations in our bar or patio due to their small size and popularity. They are seated on a first come basis. For reservations larger than 8 people please call us at 901-201-2500.

    I've been a patron of Ciao Bella since they opened. The food is consistently delicious, the service is wonderful, and you certainly get your money's worth. Suzy White, the manager, has done a superb job. And Bronwyn is an especially good server.

    We love Ciao Bella! The service, atmosphere , and food. One of our very favorite places. I have many dishes that I could recommend. I have a hard time trying something different because of all my regular orders that we enjoy. Lunch is especially good because you can order a soup & salad. At Christmas time our family visited from out of town, and we choose Ciao Bella for our large family outing! So fortunate to have this restaurant in East Memphis.

    The food was wonderful. It was presented nicely and the server was very helpful in my request for the gluten free pasta. It would have been helpful to have a gluten free roll, bread, cracker or even corn chips to go with the goat cheese appetizer we had ordered so I could enjoy it with something other than my spoon, but the experience, knowledgeable staff, and tasty dishes will bring me back another time. I always am looking for gf options on the menus of restaurants since available items to order are usually limited. Thank you for a beautiful evening celebrating my son's birthday.

    Neighborhood gem and you're lucky if you get to go there lots because it would be a great project to eat your way through the menu. Fantastic salads, superb pasta, delicious pizzas, robust wine list-- who could ask for anything more? Plus it won't break the bank and you won't have to shout to have a pleasant conversation. Parking is easy, the servers are competent and attentive, it is lovely place to have a nice night out.

    The appetizers wasn't anything special. The lasagna was good but the molten cake was not molten at all. Very cold and not warm at all. It was like cold pudding in a brownie and my co-workers was the exact same way so it wasn't just mine. Overall it was ok but it didn't live up to the price point of the food.

    I just wanted spaghetti with Italian sausage. It was pretty bland. I will try something fancier if/when I go back. Perhaps they will put the spice in that. A minor problem is the parking lot. Huey's is in the same strip and their patrons were driving like idiots.

    One of my favorite places to eat but on this night it was off its game food wise. Spaghetti was very dry as it had very little sauce. Beef Ragu just didn’t have much flavor. Pizza was not hot and had to send it back to be reheated but still wasn’t very hot.
