Ciao Bello, Tony Vallone’s “neighborhood Italian,” winner Houston Press “best Italian”
“I like to call Ciao Bello ‘your neighborhood Italian restaurant,'” says iconic Houston restaurateur Tony Vallone.
At Ciao Bello, Tony Vallone uses the same “doppio zero” flour for his housemade pasta as he does at his flagship restaurant Tony’s.
He uses the same extra-virgin olive oil imported directly from Sicily. The setting is casual, the prices are family-friendly, and the atmosphere is jovial and relaxed…
A slice of Italy in Houston.
Some might call it “Italian casual.” Others would call it “Italian comfort food.” And those who frequent Tony’s on Richmond might even call it “Tony’s light.”
We just call it “great food to be shared with family and friends.”
