We stumbled across Ciao while looking for something to eat. It was amazing. From the time we walked in the front door, throughout dinner, and when we left, we were treated like "regulars". We will make this on of our "go to" restaurants.

We had a lovely evening here! The meal was delicious and the service was great! We started with a cocktail and oyster app, then the sea bass Special and zuppa de pesce, ending with cappucino and cannoli! Thank you Kyle for making our evening perfect!

This is our favorite place at Myrtle Beach. Whenever we visit, we always goto Ciao at least a few time during our vacation. Spaghetti with white clam source is my favorite.

As long as you advise the waiter and request to speak with the chef to ensure he knows of your allergy, I am certain they will accommodate your need.
