Ciao Bella is a popular Italian restaurant in downtown Saigon. It's relaxed, cosy and well priced.

Veteran Saigon restaurateur Tony Fox has brought together a very simple formula at Ciao Bella. And it's working a treat. The space is cosy, the location is right downtown and the staff are friendly and attentive. Most importantly though, the Italian cuisine is delicious and well priced. 

Expats, visitors and locals flock to Ciao Bella each night. You're no sooner in the door and a glass of prosecco is served to get you settled.

The feel is relaxed and friendly with a menu featuring pastas, pizzas and a good selection of familiar Italian mains. The specials list is extensive and regularly updated.

Ciao Bella's a good choice for a break from Vietnamese cuisine washed down with a glass of wine. Book or arrive early as it can be busy.
