For the past nine years that Ciao Bella has been in Northwest Indiana, restaurant owner Giuseppe "Joe" Scalzo has been offering a varied mix of the flavors of Italy as well as a celebration of the rich Italian culture and lifestyle. "People thought I was crazy opening up after a recession but it's been great," said Scalzo. Ciao Bella, an Italian ristorante/pizzeria and wine bar, opened in 2009, to offer an authentic culinary journey to diners.
