I never write reviews but Cioa Amore is incredible! I've visited on numerous occasions and every time the service, food and atmosphere has been amazing. All the staff are friendly, welcoming, polite and attentive. The food is absolutely delicious.

We went for a meal with extended family and received a warm welcome. The food was fantastic - authentic Italian, and the service was excellent. We had several children with us and their needs were catered for as well as the adults, leaving everyone feeling that they had enjoyed the whole experience. Some of the children didn't finish their food... More

Chilli squid for starter, mussels, prawns and squid for main, Panna cotta for pudding x 2. Service was excellent as was the food. I would definitely come back if I'm ever unfortunate enough to work in Taunton again.
