Popped in on a Friday night with no booking but we got a table no problem. Staff were very friendly. Food was tasty and plentiful. Atmosphere wasn't what I expected, I thought it would have been more like a restaurant, but, it was more like a night time cafe. Good value for money.

We went for an impromptu dinner, so had no reservations, but they had no problems seating us. The food was wonderful with large portions, and the service was very good. I'm sure we will eat here again.

We attended he for the first time on a Tuesday night. No mussels on a Tuesday I was told? Starter certainly wasn't what it should have been and my pasta was well baked to the dish!!!! Off putting for us

Food very well presented with great service. Prawns and onion soup for starters, carbonara and lasagne mains with sides of garlic bread each. All generous sized portions and full of flavour. Can't wait to go back!

This is a great restaurant using the best ingredients , beautifully cooked. The charcuterie is superb and the Specials delicious. The lobster ravioli is divine! Short but excellent wine list and great service. Go there!

I was introduced to this restaurant by my family more than 10 years ago and will continue to visit as often as I can. I can strongly recommend the Pasta al Forno - 'it's a must!' We love Ciao so much; we had our families meet there for dinner the night before our wedding! Tommaso and Joanna are so very... More

I visit this restaurant regularly as I spend a lot of time at the nearby mal maison hotel when I'm on business in Dundee and I'm never left dissapointed. On my most recent visit I ordered the calamari starter and asked the chef tomasso to create me a pizza of his choice as I tended to order the quattro staggioni... More

My wife and I along with friends went to Ciao Sorrento for the first time on 15/11/2014, I have always wanted to try it out, and I wasn't disappointed. The food was as I was hoping for, simple but tasty. I had a pepperoni pizza as my main and I have to be honest it didn't look great, but it... More
