Everything was delicious and wait staff excellent, Recommend making the antipasto a regular feature on the menu at $17.00 its just right and completes the meal perfectly along a side salad and the great bread.

When I want to empress a guest of mine, I always go to Ballo. The food is spectacular and the decor ambiance can't be beat.

I am a creature of habbit and alway have teh same disk, but on this visit the water mentioned a seafood pasta dish that was fantastic. I can only hope this special is a more frequent option.

I love fine dining. We go out to eat once a week and spend a lot of money on food and service. Ballo is by far our favorite new place. The quality of food, service, prices and ambience by far exceeds any place we've visited recently. We will definitely be back!

Everything was great. My only complaint was the price compared to the serving of food. For the price of the food and what you are given doesn’t match. I ordered the fillet mignon and was given a portion of meat that I didn’t feel met the price I was being charged. I was given six or seven carrot slices and that was it. No kinda starch with my meal. If I was running a restaurant and put down a plate that probably had a 4oz piece of meat and 7 carrot slices and I was charging 48 dollars for it I would be highly embarrassed.

Ballo was an excellent experience! The food was great and we were seated and served promptly. The server made our experience special as we were celebrating our engagement. The restaurant is beautiful and I was surprised that we couldn’t hear a lot of the bustle from the casino, which was a pleasant surprise! 5 stars, we will be back!
