After having experienced a LCBO class with chef Bianca Maria we knew we had to try her restaurant and we were not surprised that we LOVED it! Cool atmosphere (except for the parking issue - we even got a parking ticket!), awesome server and food was spectacular. The antipasto platter was well filled with a variety of goodies and the...

When you walk through the doors at Ciao Pasta Bad, you are greeted right away by one of their employees! It's nice to know you are welcomed. Next we were seated by a window and was brought water and menus. The menus are printed very well! It's a great concept. Our server came over and introduced herself and asked if... More

My boyfriend and I have been to Ciao numerous times for dinner and we have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Pasta made exactly the way you want it...what more can you ask for? The servers have always been attentive and friendly as well.

We were planning on going to Spago but there was a line-up there and we didn't want to wait. So we came here instead. This restaurant has gorgeous decor. However, our waitress did not seem to be passionate about serving us or connecting with us. In hindsight I now realize this is a Pasta place, and reviews for pasta dishes... More

Me and my girlfriend always pick Ciao as our date night spot! Food is always delicious, service is great and the staff are all friendly. Never have we had a bad experience here. Hats off to the owners as well, they have a great place and should be packed every night shocked they are not

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at this restaurant. The restaurant is very nice with modern decor. We are quite picky but the meal and service met our expectations. We would definitely go back there.
