“Good Italian”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

Being a restaurant run by Italians, Bella Ciao most definitely is as close to original Italian as one can get in Chennai. The food here is a step above other Italian joints. I personally liked the Focaccia and the deserts are all excellent.

“My favorite”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

I have been visiting this restaurant ever since I've moved to Chennai and I can just never get over it. Its my favorite! The food, warmth, location, concept, ambience, music, people - everything is superb about it. I never have to give my order cuz they always know what I would like to eat, starting from my drink to main course to dessert. The ladies who do the service there are the best cuz they always have a very genuine smile and anticipate what you want. Bella Ciao doesn't do any marketing or advertising but word of mouth is just enough to draw people there. Anyone who I have recommended that place to has always given me an excellent feedback. Its a must visit place, I say

“Cozy Setting, Good Food...”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Unless someone is quite fond of Italian cuisine, Bella Ciao won't really talk to them. It's not too different from the other genuine Italian restaurants. It hasn't Indianized it's offerings and keeps things as close to the original flavors as possible.

One should surely try their thin crust pizzas fresh from the wood oven and their pastas. They make a great ravioli and their menu for little ones is a godsend for parents who otherwise agonize over what their child might eat.

Their portions are good, filling and the flavors clean.

Given the fact that it's a short walk from the beach makes it a must try for an al fresco dinner under the stars.

“Very authentic Italian food that is delicious”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

This restaurant serves variety of Italian dishes. The ambience is very good and the service is very fast. We are vegetarians and we thoroughly enjoyed the vegetarian food that we ordered. The food may be kana and may not be spicy. The best thing that I like about this restaurant is they prepare breads and pizza in a brick oven. They seem to prepare the pizza base and the breads fresh. You can see how they cook as it is a open kitchen. The fruit platter tastes well as well.
