When you think of Italian you think of family. That's how we felt at this charming little restaurant on 47th a block off the main drag in Cape Coral. We sat outside on a warm January night and enjoyed a very generous pour of wine with our roasted garlic cheese bread ( don't miss it) then ordered from the evening's... More

Ciopino (seafood in light broth) tons of delicious perfectly prepared fish and seafood . Woodfired pizza. If your mouth is not watering by now. It will be by dessert. Try the Tree of Love.

We have not had anything but pizza, but we would not go back for it. However, maybe we are the exception as we saw many people getting carry outs.

Lynne E, Thank you for taking the time to post a review, although not a good one. I'm at a loss about your review of our Neapolitan pizza, it's truly as authentic as it gets. We start out with all imported ingredients such as our flour, pizza tomatoes, and all product used to create our 15 house specialty pizzas, right... More

After some disappointing meals locally we were extremely relieved to find a restaurant with a varied menu. We arrived, without booking, and the restaurant was full, which was a good sign. We left our name and popped to the bar next door for a drink. On returning we were served by the sweetest and most helpful waiter, Cody. The menu... More

Walked in the door early (5:15 pm) last night, have been here five times. As always food was great. I had Slow cooked pork shank and my wife had eggplant. Both were above expectations.

We've been coming to Jill and Chris's gastronomic mecca since Ciao opened. We've always loved it. We're Canucks that spend the winters here and share our home 3 couples immediately after Christmas for two weeks.

Love this place and have enjoyed many great meals here. Last night we got a baby sitter and slipped away to Miss Jill's - she wasn't there which might have accounted for the unfortunate and unusually poor experience. Service was painfully slow, our pizza was undercooked and soggy - delicious none the less but not the standard awesome. Our Greek... More

This place is a treasure. Great food, the owner is engaged in the business and it shows. Small seating area but worth any wait. The lasagna is to die for! You'll find a local family atmosphere which is a welcome relief.

The restaurant is small but the atmosphere and food are outstanding. So much better than the large chain-operated places, or fast food. The menu selections are very good, with several specials to choose from. Jill came out and greeted guests she already knew and introduced herself to us and made us feel very welcome. Guests at a nearby table recommended... More
