At the door, the host told us they had several reservations that evening, and if we could keep our dinner to under 1 hour, we could stay!! He continually turned many patrons down at the door early on Sat. night, even though the restaurant was 75% EMPTY! Ciao Bella indeed. Out of hunger, we stayed and within that hour, the restaurant remained empty. Our appetizer came in under 5 minutes, our meals within 10 - at which point our half eaten appetizer was yanked from the table so fast, we could hardly realize what had happened. Our entrees were likewise yanked, we were repeatedly asked as we were EATING our meal, if we would like 'to go' boxes. If you don't have time to enjoy it, why go to Ciao Bella at all? You'll get a four star price for a mcdonald's drive thru experience!
Cons: rude staff
