To my personal taste, this restaurant, is one of the best examples of how a fine dining restaurant should look like. Moreover the food is nice and served perfectly. What more can ask ?

Spent a lovely couple of hours at Ciao recently. From the moment we arrived we were treated wonderfully by the very attentive staff. We chose the set lunch menu which had plenty of variety and was excellent value and most importantly scrumptious. For a visitor to KL , Ciao offers something different to the great variety of Asian cuisine.

I had lunch here quite a few years ago. Nice to revisit again. Had Carrot & pumpkin soup with garlic bread. Soup was right consistency. A bit of greens from Caesar salad did not disappoint. I had Linguine aglio-olio with mix seafood where sauce though thin was flavourful. Sampled the Fusilli with fresh tomato-basil sauce and eggplants, like the Al... More

Clean and a great place for a special evening.... More

It's tough to find the "al dente" pasta in Asia, although they have lots of noodle menu. Here I found "al dente!" They served me "Spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino" upon my request, though it was not in their menu. The atmosphere of the restaurant is outstanding and the staffs there are all friendly and helpful to make orders. You... More

During our stay in KL, we had a craving for Italian food. Our hotel (Villa Samadhi) recommended Ciao. This was one of my favourites meals in KL. The Fritto misto di mare and spaghetti vongole were outstanding. As good as any meal I've had in Italy. The Italian maitre d' was extremely helpful. Excellent food. Well worth a visit.
