Only negative was cappuccinos were warm. We sat outside and it was a very nice atmoshere.
Place is nice. food was great! air conditioning was not working properly.
Yummy—-Very nice waitress prompt service been there a few times
Good food, service was good. Changed dish to accommodate food allergy
Food was yummy, but the waiter missed one order. enjoyed sitting outside as it was a beautiful evening and not too loud that way!
Great environment! Outdoor seating is spacious and has a great vibe!
We have been here several times and have always enjoyed our visit. This was the first time we ate outside. While it was a lovely evening I believe the outside staff could use more training. We had asked for bread but we did not receive it until we received our dinner. Usually we receive bread right away while reviewing our menu. While she was very pleasant we were not offered pepper for our meals. We will return looking for a better experience as we have had in the past.
The chicken Francese was inedible. Tasted like it was microwaved out of the freezer. Sitting outside, however, was lovely.
The service is usually quite good but last night it was chaos. They were out of wine & water glasses for a while. Lastly, our waiter though nice was hardly seen & when he did come over he was complaining and apologizing. It was odd.
Very slow service. Food was good enough. We will try it again but there are so many great places in Cranford. You can’t beat the outdoor seating.
Unfortunately, the restaurant was over booked and under staffed. We waited almost an hour for our dinner. My husband’s dinner was completely over cooked and was removed from our bill. We have eaten there many times but no more. Opening their outside dining totally overwhelmed both the staff and kitchen.
Great place. Good food, I like the fact that it is a BYOB restaurant
Food was really good
This place was recommended by a friend. I was reluctant to try it after reading the reviews about the slow service.The food was actually very good. However, we had a 7:00 reservation & the entrees arrived at the table at 8:40. Had to track down the waiter, who apologized as " they were so busy because of Mother's Day". It was Saturday night before the holiday. Please don't insult my intelligence by suggesting that patrons were there celebrating Mother's day a day early.
Service was extremely poor. We sat outside and they were busy, which is understandable. It took someone at least 20 minutes to come over to our table and great us. Another 20 minutes for her to return with our drinks. No where to be found the entire time. Food was cold and chewy when it arrived. Big disappointment.
Food was great, waiter was nice however main complaint was it took over an hour for the food to arrive.
This was not my first time at Ciao Bello, nor will it be my last. We always enjoy the food and it was particularly nice to be able to sit outside. Unfortunately, the service was somewhat lacking this time around. There were a handful of younger girls who just seemed clueless; for example, the girl with the water pitcher offered to pour us some until I pointed out that we had no glasses - she said "okay," shrugged and walked away. We received our meals, but then our waiter never came back. Over 25 minutes passed with no waiter, no offer of coffee/dessert, no check, etc. I asked another waitress passing by if she could send him over to us or ask him for the check, but she stated she didn't know who he was. I eventually got up to find him and get the check.
Horrible service, my water sat empty for most of my meal.
We've been here many times and always enjoy it. This last visit was no exception.
My family and I went out for dinner this past Saturday night. We had good food and the service was excellent. We love to go to Ciao Bello when the weather is warm and we can sit outside.
Food was not the same as it has been in the past, and the quality was not as good.
Made a reservation for Valentines Day over a week ago, when we arrived at the restaurant, we were told would need to wait because Open Table overbooked reservations. Waited with no updates from hostess, then overheard someone complaining they had been waiting 1 hour for meal to arrive. Gave up and went to Killkeny down the street. Will not be back
We were there NYE so it was a packed house. It was loud. Otherwise, the food was good, good portions and reasonably priced.
New Year’s Eve but food and service were great. Restaurant was full but that didn’t affect the food or service. Everything was great. Lasagna is always a big hit with my husband. I had the chicken marsala which was delicious.
We had never been here before. Wonderful food. Attentive and efficient service. A great family dinner!
Excellent service and food. Regular menu, which delighted but surprised me. Even had specials. Perfect quiet and relaxed Christmas Day dinner.
The food and the service were excellent. Love going here!
I love the service, great food, everyone were very helpful
Food and service were excellent. Our waiter, Walter, was very attentive and efficient. Great holiday dinner with family.
Dinner was great. Wally our waiter was superb,, always checking on us.
We'll see you many more times
Large menu with lots of choices. The food was terrific. The interior is nice, but not stuffy/fancy. Good place for groups and families. Wait staff was very attentive.
Great restaurant. Food was delicious. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. Did I mention the food is delicious! Great Italian at a great value.
Very good. Our waiter, Wally, is the best. Highly recommend him. The food is excellent.
The atmosphere could be a little more decorative.
awesome time- very good pasta. i would definitely go back!!
Food and service was very good. Made reservations via Open Table and requested a table by the window because we both use canes and it would be easier. We were first offered a table in the middle of room and explained we had requested a table by the window because of our canes. After a few moments, she found us a table that was easier for us.
I thought berything was great except the food didn’t come out super hot. Other than that I would certainly go back again.
Food is average. Good Italian choices. Nothing really outstanding though. Service was not great. An appetizer was forgotten. Best dish at the table was the flounder francese.
Love it great pasta will be returning
Veal dish I had was amazing! Our waiter Mike was also a big help when suggesting certain food dishes. So far, haven't had a bad meal.
