My wife and I come to Amelia Island every year and normally stop at Ciao Bistro. Food is always excellent and the restaurant is hopping. One thing they could improve on a bit though is the service by the wait staff. Their focus seems to be placing the order and delivering the food. They don't come by and ask how... More

We were reading through a guest book in our condo and this restaurant was mentioned many times. We had a wonderful experience! Great service, delicious food, and wonderful drink menu. My son and I had the Ciao rigatoni and it was wonderful. The calamari appetizer and the bruschetta was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Food was amazing! Nice wine list. They only bring one slice of bread per person - no basket. The waiter gave us another piece and promised us more, but that never happened. Service was off - our appetizer took about 30 minutes to come out (I think they forgot it). Our friend asked for a 2nd glass of wine, which... More

Plentiful dishes that we could not finnish although delicious. The angel hair pesto is definitely to share because it is very rich. Lasagna was excellent. It is family friendly and we went at 6pm.

Went on a Sunday evening and it was crowded. The noise level was loud because tables are so close. The food & wine was good and service was good.

Great location and the food was very good but the portions dont match the prices. Spent 40 dollars on chicken alfredo brushetta and a salad. No drink. 3 pieces of brushetta was 7 dollars and the salad was 7 dollars and fit on a small bread plate. Service was ok at best. My water glass stayed empty and they never... More

However they were very slow at bringing out bread/oil-we had to request this .. The waiter was very polite and took our order promptly , I had the seafood... More
