After a visit last year decided to book this place for a family birthday party.It was a good choice .There was plenty of choices & the meals were all piping hot.When you see empty plates all round that is a good sign.

Recently moved to dunfermline and found this gem of an Italian restaurant right on my door step. Friendly service, nice decor, subtle Italian atmosphere (music and art work) but most of all authentic Italian food. Not complicated and not British Italian. Great produce and fantastic choice to discover the simple and delicious true Italian flavours. Been 5 times already and... More

Although hidden away at the bottom of the town, we have ventured in a couple of times now and had some of the best meals of any restaurant in Dunfermline. Nice Interior, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Always interesting specials to try, although recommend booking if you are looking for a table at peak time on a Saturday evening. Will... More

First time at Ciao and it won't be the last. Dinner on a busy Friday evening was a good test and one which it passed with flying colours as far as quality of food and service was concerned. The only down side is it is very noisy - more so than you would expect from the number of diners. This... More

Having walked past Ciao Italia more times than I care to admit on the way in to the fish and chip shop next door we at last got round to having a meal in it. It was a birthday celebration and we wanted to go somewhere new rather than one of our "old faithfuls". It was a good choice and... More

Ciao Italia is one of our favourite Italian restaurants in the area. We visit regularly to enjoy the great food. The Porcini Risotto is a must try and my husband swears by the Capricciosa pizza. The staff are friendly and attentive and make sure we always enjoy ourselves. Looking forward to our next visit.

I could eat here every day! We visit as often as we can, the pasta is cooked perfectly to our liking and the pizza tastes like its just come out an oven in the middle of Milan. Well done to the team who are very efficient and we look forward to our next visit!

Thankfully we had booked a table because on arrival, all tables bar one, were beng used. We were warmly greeted at the door and shown to our table. The place was packed and all the staff extremely busy. There was a lovely, lively buzz about the place, all very Italian- like! There was predictably, a slight delay in ordering but... More

We ate here last Sunday for my birthday and have visited many times before and the food never disappoints. Again food was great but we felt the service left a bit to be desired, the waiter was rather glum never raised a smile when taking food order. The feeling was they didn't want us there, probably had a busy weekend... More

We went there few times over the years and the service has always been good or very good. Not this time, definitely not! Quality of the food was just average and that would have got them lower marks anyway, but having reserved in advance and being ignored for over 45 minutes it was completely unacceptable. No attention whatsoever was given... More
