Food was excellent as was the service. Generous servings warm bread, very attentive wait staff and very tasty dishes. Everyone in our party raved about their meals, ranging from Pizza to classic Italian Veal and Pasta dishes. You will leave full and with some welcome left overs.

If you want a little, quaint, homey, real Italian restaurant this is the place for you! Portions are big, food is authentic, the owner is the chef and visits all the tables, and the wine is great to add to your dining experience. I highly recommend to one and all!!!

This little place is huge on ambiance and deliciously prepared food! I have tried everything on the menu with few exceptions...."it's all good". You feel as though you've wandered into an Italian grandmother's kitchen...the aromas, the nightly toast to all patrons given by Jill, the owner, make you feel right at home. Oh, and did I mention the portions are... More

Been here a few times. Pizza is hit or miss. What they don't understand is that if one tiny piece of that pizza gets black as in burnt, it puts a horrible taste in your mouth. They need to watch that pizza when its cooking. I also had the Marsala it was prepared nicely the chicken was tender sauce was... More

The food here was very good, although a little pricey. The proprietor was very sweet and personally comes out to talk to all the diners which was wonderful. Overall, great experience.

Ciao's is a small, family owned Italian food and Pizza restaurant. Many wonderful pasta and traditional Italian dishes to choose from. I had a spicy seafood pasta dish and it was spot on. My wife had the chicken parmesan and she loved it. The chef comes out and visits the tables to ensure the guests are having a great dinning... More
