I absolute love this restaurant. When I used to stay in Hatfield, Ciao! would always be my restaurant of choice. We would normally visit the restaurant before or after a movie, and would always walk away satisfied. The food itself is amazing, not to mention some interesting pizza combinations to choose from. Since I am a pizza-lover this was definitely... More

Wonderful food, friendly staff and an Italian bistro atmosphere. Always a great experience! The lunch express is also a great value for Money, which is available on a Sarurday- quite unusual (but fantastic!)

Ciao is a very good restaurant with an excellent menu to suit all tastes. Situated in the Brooklyn area. Well worth a visit.

Since Ciao has been taken over by new management the standard of food and service has gone to the dogs. The food served in this restaurant is disgusting and cannot in any way be called Italian.

we go to Ciao almost weekly to enjoy the well seasoned quality cuisine that is very reasonably priced. They are consistent in their service and food quality and attend to issues highlighted when experienced

And every time I pass by, this place is pretty busy. I went there with my husband for lunch and we were pretty surprised that the food were reasonably priced. Our... More
