Be aware of the false information on their website. They advertize 20% senior discount Sunday-Friday, 5:00-6:30PM We were there at 5:45 PM on a Tuesday at 5:45 PM and they refuse to honor their website advertizement. Staff claimed they never had a senior discount. With their pricing structure you end up with an overpriced pasta dish.

After me and my fiance got engaged we decided to go out for dinner, this place is right around the corner from our house so it was an easy choice. A choice we are now glad we've made, we've gone a handful of times, sometimes as date nights, sometimes bringing people to try the food, and have never been disappointed.... More

We had a fabulous diner last evening at Ciao. The restaurant is very clean and neat in appearance with a nice European atmosphere. Loved the huge windows looking out at Erie St. Our server was extremely attentive, I feel bad I do not remember her name...so sorry! But our server remembered the choice of wine for someone in our party... More

I have been to Ciao a total of four times now. Time to write a review. The food and service is outstanding. The outdoor patio is a place where you can spend the entire evening (which we have on two occasions this summer). The wine selection is very good and the deserts are sensational (you have to try the cannolis).... More

I will eat here over and over again! The food is fantastic! The chef studies in New York and worked for some important television personalities and we only found that out from the server after we ate and told her how great everything was! They're summer drink menu is fun too!!! Very refreshing drinks!

We have been to Ciao Pasta Bar many times for dinner either as a couple or with a group. It is such a treat to be able to build your own dinner! Or choose from their "Mains" selection, like Osso Bucco, Salmon or Stuffed Chicken breast. All delicious! The homemade pastas are all very good especially the basil pappardelle. The... More
