The restaurant is serving some spectacular food

Dan Myers

Ballo's pizzas are hard to not fall in love with.

There’s no shortage of spectacular dining options at Mohegan Sun, from casual options like Bobby’s Burger Palace and Frank Pepe to upscale spots like Todd English’s Tuscany and Bar Americain. But if you’re visiting the resort and only have the time or budget for one fine-dining meal, I suggest you visit Ballo. I had the opportunity to dine there at the invitation of the restaurant, and was legitimately blown away by both the meal and the space.

The restaurant itself is sprawling, with an expansive bar/ lounge area dominated by high stone vaulted ceilings reminiscent of a Gothic cathedral. The main dining room behind it is equally inviting. The wide menu includes appetizers, salads, pizza, pasta, secondi, and contorni, sticking to a traditional Italian approach, and it’s hard to go wrong.


We started with the arancini, which were crisp, not greasy, and full of flavor (and short rib). The Sopressata pizza had a perfectly chewy crust, and the toppings of spicy salami, smoked mozzarella, caramelized shallots, and chiles were properly distributed and balanced. It’s a pizza that’s impossible to dislike. Make sure you pay attention to the specials, because their special ravioli, filled with butternut squash and ricotta and tossed with a brown butter sauce, was fresh-made and was literally as tasty as any of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had, including ones at New York’s Babbo (Pay attention to the specials, they’re devised daily using fresh seasonal ingredients). Chicken francese was golden brown and a spot-on traditional interpretation of the classic dish; and the zuppa di pesce, brimming with lobster tail, calamari, shrimp, clams, and mussels in a rich tomato broth, was hearty and comforting. Don’t miss the fresh homemade cannoli for dessert. Service was friendly and professional.

If you’re at Mohegan Sun and looking for a traditional Italian meal, look no further than Ballo.


Mohegan Sun Adventures

After a long week, I crave one of two things: a large glass of wine or a fun weekend with friends. Luckily, thanks to our friends at Mohegan Sun, I am able to enjoy both of those this weekend. The Mohegan Sun invited the four of us to their Sun Wine Fest ‘12 as media guests.

The Sun Wine Fest brings together over a thousand different beer, wine, and liquor brands in their Grand Tasting Event which is held in Mohegan Sun’s convention center. In addition, their Main Culinary stage will feature demos by Bobby Flay, Todd English, and other area chefs!

The room has a beautiful view of the surroundings and features a large bathroom and two full size beds.

We headed downstairs for our 10pm reservations at Ballo, the newest addition to Mohegan Sun’s restaurant repertoire. Inspired by the hills of Tuscany, Ballo focuses on bringing together the beauty Italian cathedrals and fresh, locally grown Italian food and produce.  

We started with the same wine Tina enjoyed when she was at Ballo back in December, Pio Cesare Arneis. We paired the wine with crusty bread and amazing butter, which was in olive oil and sprinkled with herbs.

When you hand four hungry ladies an amazing menu the result is a table filled with delicious food. Instead of ordering entrees we split four of their appetizers and vegetables. Everything we ordered was devoured within seconds, but the winners were the Brussels sprouts and crispy artichokes.

The doughy pizza, topped with sweet sausage, caramelized onions, and pepper, was the perfect amount to share between the four of us.

Dinner at Ballo was the perfect beginning to our Mohegan weekend and great fuel for this morning’s workout. Though we were moving very slowly this morning, we eventually made our way outside for a run along the Mohegan Sun grounds.

Clearly, Anne’s thumb was very excited about this run. While there were no actual trails around the grounds we found a few surrounding hills, dead end streets, and most importantly a land fill. Yes, for one reason or another there is a prettier than expected landfill about a half mile from Mohegan Sun through which we may or may not have run.
