Ate here with friends and the quality of the food blew us all away. Incredible!! We did not want to eat in one of the chain restaurants and chose to try Ciao Belli. The hosts were very welcoming and relaxed but so enthusiastic about what they did. I can honestly say it is one of the best meals I have had, the quality and the flavors were to die for. We cannot wait to go back.

The only one minor thing I would change is the lighting. The halogen lights were very very bright and not very relaxing, if softer bulbs or dimmer switches were installed, it would be perfect.

Went to Caio Belli with some friends. Sadly none of us had coffee as I've heard it's very good in here. The tea was leaves in a pot and we had to share small pots which not everyone was happy with. Tea was stewed on arrival altho they did top up with water when empty.
Several of us ordered paninis.... Mine came as a toasted baguette, one got a panini, another got focaccia. Bit hit and miss but all looked and tasted great. Salads and cakes looked good. Nice little place, would recommend.

Visited here based on reviews on trip advisor. Generally pleasant and clean and good service.
But I was disappointed with the coffee, I hoped for a better brew. It just tasted of hot milk. Can't fault the service though and would go back for food as menu looked really good.
