Ballo Italian Restaurant
We had a great experience. Food is phenomenal, the service is terrific. The only drawback on this particular night was a large rowdy group at the next table.
This is our favorite restaurant at Mohegan Sun Casino. The food is always fresh and deliciously prepared. I don't like to be rushed when I dine and our waiter was very respectful of that ( he also gave excellent suggestions). His name was Michael. I highly recommend the rigatoni with sausage, caesar salad and chicken frances.
Food was overall very good but shrimp in my pasta dish were over cooked. Others who had same dish said the same. Otherwise excellent.
The food was very bland. I was very disappointed as I was very excited to try it out.
The food was excellent and our server was amazing definitely will be back
Food delivery was a little faster than we would have wanted it to be, but the food and service were excellent. Love this restaurant!!
We went to Ballo for an early dinner before the Pentatonix show. The atmosphere and service were wonderful. The “Sunday” sauce with chicken, sausage and a meatball was beyond what I had hoped for. My wife had the swordfish. She cleaned her plate, it was so good. I recommend Ballo. 5 Stars.
Best restaurant in Mohegan Sun. This is our favorite date night spot. The food is amazing every time. If you are going to the casino, make a res at Ballo. You won't be disappointed.
Unfortunately we ordered dinner and my wife got the wrong meal. Waitress accidentally pressed the wrong button so we had to sit there and wait for a food to be made. She did Apologize but we feel that we should have been comped something. The drink she recommended was horrible at least she could have taken that off the bill.
Dinner was ok, I felt that considering the restaurant is labeled as "Fine Dining" their dishes are mediocre. I had a shrimp scampi dish, it was ok nothing to rave about, my husband had pasta, same old, same old. A little disappointing. Probably won't go back.
It is a beautiful restaurant and the food is really delicious. A must try is the brussel sprouts - they are addicting and should be made illegal. I will have them every time I go there
Rachael was great. Food was amazing as always
Went for a special occasion so the price wasn’t an obstacle. The food was simply outstanding. From the fired Mac and cheese to the gratis cannolis, and everything in between, we loved it. And the service was every bit as good. We’re not fans of casinos, but this place was definitely worth the trip.
The food and atmosphere, and service were very good. What more can I ask for. The price is a little high.
We've never had a bad meal at Ballo, and our most recent visit was probably the best meal we've had there. We ordered the special appetizer of homemade mozzarella, roasted red peppers, other meats and cheeses and it was fabulous. It was only to be outdone by the chef's pasta special of 2 kinds of homemade spaghetti - one of Peppadew peppers and the other of Spinach. A chile sauce with andouille sausage made the dish phenomenal. The pasta was cooked perfectly, al dente. Service was wonderful, we didn't want for anything, everything was timed just right. Although it was busy, we never felt rushed.
Always delicious. Never disappointed when eating at Ballos
Always excellent. A favorite. We go there every time we go to the casino.
Made the mistake of ordering a steak at an Italian restaurant that was not prepared to serve beef. Received the $50 steak that was cold and clearly standing in the kitchen for a while. Upon asking server to bring back and heat it - he gave an attitude. Then returned to kitchen with no change on the cold steak. This was very disappointing as we have been here many times and enjoyed it. Lesson learned - do not get the pasta. In fact, not sure we are coming back at all.
Hello, We are sorry to hear that you had a poor dining experience on Saturday. We are thankful that you have dined with us many times. We are also grateful that you gave us the opportunity to remove the steak from your bill along with your drinks, appetizer, and side. It is understood that you were disappointed but, we hope that you might give us a try again in the future. Please ask to speak with Jason or Rachel and we would be happy to help. Sincerely, Rachel Lenda Assistant General Manager
All of our entrees were very ordinary.
The food is amazing and the staff is excellent . I would definitely recommend ballo.

Hi Naomi, Thank you for taking time out of your day to write such a lovely review! We showed our bartenders your review and it gave them a big smile. We appreciate it and hope we have the opportunity to serve you again in the future. Kind Regards, Rachel Lenda Assistant General Manager
We were there to celebrate my husbands 60 th birthday. Everyone enjoyed their meal, our server was wonderful. Thought the price was a bit high but thought it was a special occasion and worth it. The only small issue I had was I pre-ordered my husbands desert of chocolate cake and he got cannolis. I didn’t bring it up as I didn’t want to seem like a jerk.
Our server was phenomenal, she was friendly and attentive. Delicious food, pretty ambiance. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
They are quick and efficient. The wait staff is very friendly and informative of the foods that are on the menu. I had the half chicken and it was Devine.
Very relaxing...did not rush us. Food was outstanding as well as service! Highly recommend.
Too loud, make reservation get shoved off in a dark loud corner
Fantastic service and food at the bar! Well run restaurant.
Sat at the bar for a pre dinner drink. Ended up staying at the bar. Our service, food and company was amazing.
Very good offering of Italian FAVS as well as Specials from the Chf. The BEST Gnocchi ever they make theirs with Ricooa instead of Potato soooo much lighted, great Prosciutto, peas, Olive oli and whatever else was mixed in it. ,, Delicious > Very affordable, good wine selections reasonably priced - quick in ot if you want or sit for two hours and talks as we did
we will be going back as soon as we can. It was delicious !
Had a lovely pre-show dinner at Ballo. Food was excellent, service was really wonderful and especially appreciated the Manager, Rachel, stopping by to check on our experience. My only issue is that while it was a semi-enclosed area where you could still feel and hear the casino action, i would have preferred a more closed in environment. Would totally go back!!
Food was great and our waitress Debbie was fabulous!
Food and service is always 100% We love the restaurant and go every time we're there.
Here with my wife for dinner before a Frankie Valle concert and the place was hopping. Not an open table to be had, except ours which was waiting for us as was our server Michael, who is an outgoing informed server who always seems to be there when you need him and out of the area when you don’t.
We started the night off with well prepared order of calamari which were lightly dressed, served piping hot, were crispy, tender and very flavorful as was the marinara sauce served along side of it. This is one of my favorite items on their menu and tonight’s version more than lived up to my expectations.
A few glasses of wine and we were onto our main dishes. Of all the times we have eaten here I had never tried the linguine and clams, tonight was the night. This dish was served piping hot, had the freshest, sweetest clams and served with the most delicate juice/sauce I have ever had with clams, simply unreal.
My wife went with the special pasta of the weekend. Fresh spinach and pepper spaghetti homemade on site served with fresh tomato and sweet sausage OMG off the hook good. Once again setting Chef Kevin and his entire staff apart and above all others.
The ended this well paced dining with zeppole served piping hot with a side of Nutella.
Tonight was at least a twenty out of ten...love this place.
Great atmosphere, great and pleasant service. To sum it up, just a nice place to have dinner in a casino.
