Some of the best Italian food I've tasted. The menu is fantastic and I can't wait to return and try something new. The place had a lot of regulars and it was easy to see why. The servers were knowledgable and the owner is a great character who made sure we were happy with our experience. I would love to... More

We attended a theater matinee with an Italian theme in the story and thought it would be appropriate and fun to follow up dining with a taste of Italy. We were rewarded with a magnificent dining experience and we'll be ready to return soon. The small restaurant has an intimate quality about it. The only complaint we had was a... More

Pizza was great and a great atmosphere. Pizzas all run about $18-20 and will feed maybe 2 people. Add a few glasses of wine and it becomes a pricey dinner but very good. We were in a large group and couldn't get them to put a few tables together so had 3 back to back booths. A friend loved her... More

Moesha_13, Thank you so much for sharing the LOVE of Ciao! In your review. As a smaller footprint of a restaurant it's hard to move the diningroom tables around to accommodate very large parties....but we truly try our best to make sure everyone is comfortable. Also I'm so glad that everyone enjoyed their dining experience with us, and even some... More

Our first time dining at Ciao was wonderful and we cannot wait to go back! We had reservations for 18 (final count was 17), our group sat at three booths, and we all had the same waiter & server. That sounds like a recipe for disaster - HOWEVER, our meal, service and experience was PHENOMENAL! Our waiter never had us... More

What a pleasant dining experience. My husband and I and our best friends had a wonderful meal. The staff was very attentive and Jill was so friendly.

Back again this month, checked the hours of operation for Saturday and they 'close' at 8:30, raced from Sanibel Island after sunset and arrived 8:03 and was told last table was served.... More

Went here with another couple for our anniversary. My wife and I both had the veal piccata which was excellent. Service was very good,and prices were reasonable. We did visit in the off season, would expect this place to be very busy during the winter.

Enjoyed our meal and vintage at this family run restaurant. We have been back twice this year. Real Italian brick oven pizza and a menu that is very inspiring. They serve beer and wine and quite a selection of fine wines. One of our favorite spots.
