This is my second visit in 2 weeks. Both times it was a great experience was great. Everyone raved about their food. The service was great. The coconut cream pie was to die for. I'll be back again next year.

We arrived at around 7:30 on a Saturday evening (4 adults). There was a wait to be seated indoors but there were several empty tables outside. We asked if we could have immediate seating and order off the menu if we sat outside. The host said yes and we took a table right next to the host's stand. We waited... More

Ciao Wood Fired Pizza and Trattoria was a welcome relief after traveling all day through airports. Greeted at the door by a friendly man who said even though they were closing in a 5 minutes, they would be happy to keep their doors open for the three of us! Cozy environment. Aromas of fresh dough and homemade cooking were delicious... More

This restaurant, when you find it open, is fantastic! The service is personalized even to having the chef come sit with you and chat. Everything we have ordered has been homemade, fresh and delicious. The pricing seemed moderate but I have never left without having to take a to go container with me. Flavors burst from the plates. It has... More

I've been to Ciao a quite few times, but this last time will be my last. Growing up in the restaurant business, going to culinary school, and working in the business managing both front and back of the house for the last almost twenty years, I tend to always give restaurants "the benefit of the doubt". When it comes to... More

I don't know, must be the extremely low standards present in Cape Coral that put this place above so many others. First of all, first impression. No parking available and signs making it clear that the restaurant does not own any parking so park in a city lot across the street or get towed. While we were walking across the... More
