BALLO Italian Restaurant promises an Italian experience with intense design combinations, exceptional service and a fresh, authentic menu of Italian favorites and new creations. BALLO at Mohegan Sun was inspired by San Galgano - a Gothic abbey built in the 12th century, located in Tuscany.

Once in BALLO guests can enjoy a large wine by-the-glass list, specialty BALLO cocktails and freshly prepared Italian fare from the kitchen while sitting in a cathedral-like room replete with Italian fixtures, fabrics and dramatic lighting. Move further into BALLO and visitors can sit at one of the largest carrera marble bars ever built or have dinner in. Arches, stone and bold materials will accent this exuberant dining experience. But the food at BALLO is the real celebration!

Weekends, Holidays, Concerts: Parties of 10 or more are required to choose one of our amazing set party menus.

It was my sisters birthday and our waitress heard us toast to her birthday and brought over dessert with a candle to sing. That was very thoughtful!

I ordered the shrimp scampi and it was a lil bit too acidic for me. My friend ordered the chicken parmigiana and we were surprised at how thin the chicken was. Waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable as well as the servers.

Tried both the appetizer and dinner specials; both were seasonal and delicious. Ballo is our favorite restaurant, as the menu is never static and perfectly prepared.

My wife and I spent our 32 wedding anniversary there at Mohegan Sun for two nights . The dinner we had at Ballos was tremendous. The staff was exceptional as always. They were very attentive to your needs , not to mention the professionalism that they showed during our dinner. Can’t wait to return.

I frequent the Mohegan Sun two to three times a month and have previously been to Ballo's three times while the service and staff were always great I was not impressed with the food. I have spoken to other friends in the past few months that had all good things to say so I decided to give it another try. We went there Sunday night and had a fantastic dinner. The appetizers were great, we ordered the mussel's in a Fra diavolo and clams in a sweet wine and butter sauce along with garlic bread. They had the Sunday sauce with meatballs with penne which I asked if I could substitute the gnocchi s and it was no issue. My wife got the ravioli . The food was amazing and I will definitely be returning. Keep up the good work.

Food was very good, portion size was impressive. Nice atmosphere, a bit noisy due to a large group seated nearby. Waitress was very nice and the service was good. Our coffee got cold and she gave us a new pot right away. Tiramisu was very yummy!

Would recommend and would visit again.

Food was expensive and tasted just average compared to what you can get anywhere in the region for far less. It felt like the two of us were waited on by three people in a chaotic way.

There was nothing that stood out to us in terms of flavor. My husband even commented that he thought his chicken was old. The chocolate desert was even lacking flavor.

I had also put in the Open Table reservation that it was our Anniversary. This was not acknowledged.

Home made pasta was delicious. Portion size is just right. It was kind of loud because it’s close to the casino floor and the entertainment stage.

Was here on our anniversary, great food, great service, very attentive staff. If I had to complain it would be that it's a bit dark inside ,but that was overshadowed by the good food!. Will definitely be eating here again. Thanks.

Outstanding food and service. We have eaten at Ballo several times and each has been outstanding, Would definitely highly recommend this restaurant as one of the best at Mohegan Sun. We especially enjoy the chicken dinners that are offered. The macaroni and cheese appetizer is a must especially watching it prepared at the table.

My family and I went for my birthday and we all loved it. The food was excellent and the service was very good. The only two things that I didn't like was the only option for bread was to pay $12 for garlic bread. The restaurant should offer warm free bread and then if people want the garlic bread they can order it. Also, I thought that my swordfish steak portion was small given the price. I do not know if it shrunk after being cooked, but, it was pretty small when it was served.

While I don’t know her name, she made my grandmother who is 97 feel like a Queen. She brought her a more comfortable chair which allowed grandma to get out of her mobility scooter and sit at the table in a real chair. This made a big difference for grandma as she wouldn’t have been able to sit in on of the regular chairs. Thank you for making her dinning experience top notch!

it was very cold in he restaurant,I really went because i saw that they had the cheese wheel mac and cheese and wanted to try it I did not see on the menu so i thought that they no longer served it, so my second choice was a lobster and shrimp dish which i was told when i ordered it that they no longer served it, that it was a summer dish that they hadn't taken of the menu yet. so my next dish was the scallops which was ok but over cooked on one side and barley cooked on the other side, my husband ordered a seafood dish was the seafood was really tough and over cooked. then to top it off i saw the mac and cheese wheel being prepared at another table when i ask, they said it was not on the menu that you had to know that they make it, was sad because that's what i really wanted. also told them that it was my anniversary when i made the reservation and no mention was made so why ask.

the food is great as far as taste. the person that I dined with wanted an item on the menu, an entree. What a surprise to find out that the menu is new (I'm ok with that), but most of the entrees do not come with a pasta side. You must purchase the pasta as a side dish, and it was not cheap, not expensive, but not cheap. So he went with a different dinner out of principle. The kitchen cooks it up pretty good. Food looks and tastes great. Enjoy!
