We tried to get a table last minute on Saturday but it was fully booked so we went on Sunday instead. Once again the food was lovely, couldn't fault it. We shared a starter of bruschetta with mozzarella, just the right amount. I had the putesca pasta my husband had veal Milanese - clean plates all round. We then shared... More

"Ciao Italia" is truly a touch of southern Italian style in northern Europe. Lovely choice of delicious dishes in a comfortable and suave environment.

I've been here before with my mates and it was really good. My wife and I went again on Saturday based on that experience as she hadn't been before. I booked online and this was very efficient. The booking was there and we were attended to almost immediately on arrival. The restaurant was very busy, usually a great sign, but... More

I have never written a review on trip advisor before but after this evening I would feel like an accessory for a crime for holding back information for not letting people know how awful this place was. I could live with the slow service, the staff chatting & ignoring table service, I could even live with the waiter who couldnt... More

I recommend this as one of the most affordable Italian restaurants in Dunfermline. Don't worry about the parking - you can park around the back! I've always opted for something off the set lunch menu and have not been disappointed. The fish and steak dishes are portioned correctly and cooked perfectly. Nice decor and service.

I really do like the food in this restaurant. When busy the service is very slow, but the waiters are usually very pleasant. It is very noisy when busy but I cannot see what the answer to that is, perhaps it makes it more Italian!
