Super meal!

A cold Monday brightened by a really warm welcome. Quality food and nothing too much trouble from this super couple! Just what was needed when we fancied a top Italian meal. I will be back again with friends and without hesitation!

Don't be put off by the outside of the restaurant or the decor inside, or the fact the owners and head chef are in fact Indian, as this is the best Italian you will have! Everything about the food here is delicious. It is all home made and you can certainly taste and see that fact. I have now been... More

Just left the Ciao Amore having visited for the first time. We live really close and it is odd that we have never visited - we should certainly have gone much sooner! Restaurant was full as expected of a Saturday night. Our family of four had booked and the table was waiting on our arrival. Food was excellent. Service superb.... More

I have been here a number of times with friends and I cannot fault it. The staff have always been delightful and very accommodating, regardless of how busy they are. The food is exemplary with the chef coming up with new meals on a regular basis and service is as quick and efficient as I have seen; something you don't... More

Food was amazing! Calamari tender and crispy, delicious sauces, steak really well cooked. Attentive service, very friendly. Never left with an empty glass. Will definitely be coming again and recommending.

I was really glad that they had room for our 14-people group on Mothering Sunday at quite short notice when we realised that we had so many for lunch. The restaurant was full but there were enough staff to cope and there was a special lunch for the day of Italian-style roast pork and lamb as well as the usual... More

This place is definitely low-key, I must have walked past it countless times without giving it a second thought, but after hearing so many good recommendations we decided to pay a visit with friends. My expectations were pretty high after being told it was "the next best thing to being in Italy". For a starter I ordered the aubergine parmigiana,... More

First time to Ciao Amore and we will go again now that we have found it. Disappointed initially with the position of a table really close to main entrance door but actually it was not too bad. Food choice offers a good mix for most tastes and also daily specials.
