Sometimes great food AND service is hard to find. Not at Ciao. I tried the Chicken Ciao and thought it a wonderful meal. Flavorful and cooked to perfection. My wife tried the Penne Con Pollo and it was delicious as well with an incredible buttery pasta. Our experience was one of the best and Fernandina Beach has some great restaurants.

She liked it but felt like it had a bit too much cheese. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very relaxing. It was a very nice... More

Fernandina Beach is a quaint historic area, but the food is first class. The owner at this indoor-outdoor bistro was very friendly and the staff very attentive. A very good meal.

My husband and I loved this charming Italian restaurant. Staff was very attentive. This is one of the only places on the island we found a fresh garden style salad not filled with bacon and other heavy items. We each had the chicken pram which was delicious. The cannoli was amazing!!!

We have visiting this restaurant many times - usually for special occasions - and have always had a most enjoyable experience. Ms. Kim (owner) is always wonderful and the staff is amazing. If you want the best Italian food on Amelia Island, visit Ciao's Italian Bistro. Check out their cannoli's too - best I've had in the 20 years I've... More
