Nice Find!

We ate lite and split a nice salad and calamari... nicely prepared and served with care. We sat just inside the front street covered area and loved the setting as much as the food!

Luca & Kim (owners) along with their attentive wait staff make you feel like you're the only diners in the restaurant. The food is fabulous and the portions plentiful. If you leave hungry it's because you planned to do so.

it's only one of 2 Italian resturants in the historic downtown. Never open for lunch and no pizza for dinner.The other Italian is only open for lunch on Sat and Sun so there is a great opportunity for someone to start a pizza place. Menu is limited. Food is average Italian. Service is good. Expensive for what you get.

We made reservations and one of the young hostesses got confused and gave our table away causing us to have to wait a bit longer than I would have liked, but we did get seated and were well cared for. All of our food was quite nice. The wine list had some good selections as well. The restaurant is located... More

This is a great place to watch people go by on the Centre Street downtown. We came here after an outdoor concert and so there were lots of people about. There is a nice dining room too, but we sat on the covered front patio. The menu was good and the food was excellent. Great service.

Food is great. Always have a good experience at this restaurant. Service is good. They make a great red sangria & I'm not a big red wine fan. It's very refreshing & has a variety of fruit. Fresh seafood dishes are amazing but it's honestly all good

We were staying in a hotel in the historic district of Fernandina Beach, and wanted to eat dinner somewhere within walking distance. I checked TA and found Ciao Bistro a ways down the list of restaurants, but the recent reviews were all very positive, and bonus, it was only a block away. I called and made a reservation for 7....
