We were seated promptly. The restaurant was very clean and had white table clothes with white paper over the top, for quick cleaning. I ordered the Farfalle Con Pollo and it was very good. My daughter had the Rigatoni bolognese which she enjoyed very much, although after share with each other she stated she wished she had ordered the Farfalle.... More

Good Italian food. Usually pretty busy. Patio dining area is very nice in early spring or late fall but generally is a bit too warm for summer although some still seem to enjoy it. The atmosphere is very nice.

We came with quite a large group of 15-20 people last minute and the staff did all they could to get us in quickly and start getting drinks and apps out to us. The mussels were delicious and so was the Capri.

We visited Ciao with friends, and had a truly amazing meal. It began with their delicious homemade artisan bread and amazing pesto dip. I think we went through 4 or 5 plates of bread alone, it was that good! I opted for the Lasagna, which is a huge, hearty portion (much more than I could eat) and a side salad.... More

This was an amazing dinner. 2 adults, 2 teens. We had plenty of bread and dipping oil. Server was very nice, personable, and attentive. We sat in the courtyard and it was perfect. We loved the food; it was plentiful, delicious and hot! We wanted to take home the leftovers but didn't have a microwave at our resort. Loved it... More

Excellent restaurant. Excellent food. Outstanding that owner is involved and on the floor every time we have been there. Biggest problem is that they are so good, sometimes it is hard to get in without a long wait.

Quaint restaurant, friendly staff, knowledgable waiter, and what would have been delicious food are the best descriptions for my experience at Ciao Bistro in Fernandina Beach, FL. After enjoying wine and appetizers, my friend and I both got our Rigatoni Ciao, which had pasta with shrimp and scallops. About halfway into our meal, my friend noticed that our shrimp had... More
