Ciao Bello has a NEW CHEF, MENU, and LOOK! As featured in the Houston Chronicle…

“Tony Vallone excels at orchestration,” writes food editor Greg Morago for the Houston Chronicle. “You don’t get to mark more than half a century in the restaurant business, as Vallone has, without knowing how to coordinate elements to deliver the maximum punch.” “And perhaps that’s why he chose to trumpet a new chef at Ciao Bello two months after the toque already started.
