Another successful trip to Ciao. The wife and I went last night as they are closing for vacation for a few weeks (enjoy yout trip). Always start with the mushroom bisque. My wife doesn't eat mushrooms, but she LOVES the bisque. We fought over the last few drops. I would have licked the bowl if the wife wasn't sitting across... More

The wait staff was excellent, the food was delicious (try the carnivore pizza, which was delicious, and the chicken parmesan my nephew ordered had to weigh at least 2 lbs!), and the locals are regulars, you can tell the owner knew everyone coming in the door. Absolutely charming, thank you!

I'm a local that's enjoyed a few tasty meals here, but just wanted a wood-fired pizza last night. Well, that didn't happen. I saw several pizza combinations that I would have liked, but with addition of one more ingredient. You are not able to make any changes whatsoever to the sacred recipes. I'm sure the recipes are great, but I... More

I so wanted to be pleasantly surprised and even if the outside is not too pleasant, the inside is very charming and cute. Owner made sure to greet us and check if our server made it to our table yet. The server however didn't have any sense of urgency and I felt I bother him with ordering. The pizzas looked... More

Wife is Italian and this place is the BOMB. Met the owner Jill who is an absolute delight. So friendly. Visited everyone who sat down. Risotto is to die for! Our server was a guy named Tito..outstanding, very personable. Have to leave tomorrow for San Diego after 3 weeks. This may have been our best stop.
