I gave Ciao 4 stars because my sausage and peppers entree was 7 stars! Best I've every had. The bread, salad, and service were 5 stars. They also give a good pour on the house wine by the glass. Now for the bad. My wife had the flounder and it was a very thin and tasteless piece of fish. Her... More

Pizzas we ordered were exceptional tasty. We ordered four or five different pizzas and all of them were really good. I would even say that the pizza sauce was best I have ever tasted. Service was also very kind.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our restaurant. Each and every pizza is truly a work our art, not one the same. Once the pizza is stretched, topped, and gently tossed until the 900* wood fired oven! the LOVE takes over. The crust, oh the crust! Each topping all fresh, all imported, and our house made... More

(Edited) Thank You for Changing your published hours it's a HUGE help to those of us that travel. I have withdrawn my previous review as it was solely based on not being seated.

By far the best restaurant I have visited in a long long time!! I have tried many different dishes here & ALL of them are outstanding!

Referred to us by friends on the golf course, it is a small unassuming place that you sit almost in your neighbours lap. But Oh the food, the wonderful food. You bring your A1 appetite to here.

Three of us got there early and just managed to beat the Tuesday evening crowd. The food (lasagna, calamari, scallops scampi) was awesome. Didn't really have room for dessert but decided to try the tiramisu. It was fantastic, light, possibly the best I have ever had.

We found this restaurant drastically fell short of the reviews. Possibly because we've been to Italy several times and have a good sense of "real wood fired pizza". The dough lacked flavour (despite the imported flour), the pizza sauce was the same used on the pasta dishes (no genuine Italian restaurant does that) let alone the sauce was awful, and... More

Joined Ciao for the second seating on New Years Eve. Just love this place. We were concerned that since there were two seatings and us being the later that we may have to wait for the first group to exit. Not at all. We were seated right away. Our party of 6 enjoyed everything that we got. In fact, I... More
