We were out trying different places after moving here. At first glance, we thought it would be just a little pizza place. Boy, were we surprised. The food was excellent and plentiful. The desserts are all made from scratch by Jill, the owner and chef, and are so big that if we have them at all, we usually ask Jill... More

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much...I'm Italian & I love to cook...which means I'm often disappointed with Italian restaurants in Florida. But not tonight! My husband & I decided to try Ciao. It is a cute place that has outdoor seating (too hot for that now, but will be nice in a month or so). We started with a... More

I stopped in with a friend for cheesecake and wine. Staff had no qualms that I didn't have dinner this time. Jill pops out of kitchen brings entire restaurant together with her humor and pure love. Best Italian in SW Fl. Wish I could keep it a secret but it's so good everyone should try it. Make reservations. Get ready... More

Came in with my two kids and my soon to be son in law and filled our bellies with goodness. My son said the osso buco was amazing and my daughter flipped over her stuffed shells and meatballs and my future son in law downed an entire pizza! I had my old favorite chicken parm. The food is always consistent... More

Went in to try the pizza which was good but everyone needs their own pie and still left hungry.Pizza was $17 a piece and very small.For two people with one glass of wine per person you are looking at spending $60.Yes, it was good but nothing exceptional about the place.

I feel the need to respond to your post. Have you ever dined in Italy? Have you ever experienced 100% made from scratch food? Have you ever dined at a true ItalianTrattoria? Well you have at Ciao,. If you are looking for an ordinary pizza, that is NOT who we are, so maybe Papa Johns, is what you are looking... More

Went along to the restaurant after reading the reviews, as mentioned everyone was very friendly and it was like stepping back in time. Everything was very good, but expensive for what you got compared to many other restaurants we have been to. If it was not on the menu I am sure they would make it for you, I probably... More

I live on the east coast of florida, but if I lived in Cape Coral, I'd be a regular customer at this amazing restaurant. My friend and I started with an order of fried calamari, amazing alone, but the tomato sauce, WOW! We also had a Margherita pizza, the best I've ever eaten (it's the sauce) and I've been to... More
