Great Restaurant!

Ciao has been one of my favorite restaurants in the Cape for years. The owners and staff create a warm welcoming atmosphere. The food is incredible and they always have vegetarian dishes which keep me coming back. The chocolate cream pie is a must!

As soon as you walk in, you are welcomed with a very warm HELLO..... The staff was very friendly as well as helpful. The food was excellent.... We enjoyed the Fried Calamari, which was excellent as well as 2 brick oven pizzas. One was a Margherita and the other was the puttanesca. They were both excellent. Save room for desserts,... More

The warm greeting when we walked through the door was just the beginning of a delightful evening. As we were seated it was clear that everyone filling the restaurant was engaged in lively conversation and expressions of enjoyment. Everything we tried was unique and delicious - followed by pound cake for dessert that we will not soon forget. Jill and... More

We ate here in July. Everything was outstanding. I usually don't bore readers with what we ate, but I really liked my anchovy pizza and the wife had a great salad and soup.

Went on a bike night, so the place was filled to capacity. Apparently when they are filled to capacity, service is slow, it took over an hour for us to receive our meal, which was pizza. I felt the food was average at best, and would have been okay, if it didn't take an hour to receive it.

Bike night, 10,000 - 15,000 Bikers, Patrons, REGULAR customers...yes I can see us filled to Capacity...I would also expect there to be a wait....but since a pizza takes less than 3 minutes in our 900 degree Wood Fired oven...I think your claims of waiting for your pizza, to be false ( again...
