The menu is updated with daily specials, and offers a fair selection of Italian (Naples) inspired. The salads were served on warm plates, we had to ask for water and, and bread, never... More

Best Italian food my wive had in southwest Florida. My wife ordered the seafood crepes and I had the frutti del mar. The crepes were amazing. The frutti del mar was a huge dish of linguine and had plenty of mussels and scallops. The dish can be served spicy as I had it, if you don't like spicy get it... More

I have lived in Cape Coral for 4 years, but have never eaten at Ciao. That was a big mistake! The food was excellent (according to my dining partner, the best chicken parm he has tasted!) and the ambiance was great.
