Ciao Bello

Ciao Bello is Tony Vallone's classic Italian eatery, where you won't find any foam, foie or fancy tasting menus. The food and atmosphere are more comfortable and homey than Vallone's lauded flagship restaurant, Tony's, but many diners flock to Ciao Bello for just that reason. There's a bar where guests can sit and watch football games while they eat, and though most of the dishes are what people would consider gourmet, the prices are such that a family can enjoy a meal out without breaking the bank. Whether you want pasta with bolognese sauce or something more unusual, Ciao Bello serves up some of the best in town.
