reluctantly, we opted for Ciao Bistro this evening~ our first visit- last year I believe- left me less than impressed....this time, a much different story! We received delicious fresh baked ciabatta rolls with a pesto olive dipping oil- quite nice and tasty. The caesar salad was fresh and had the perfect amount of dressing. My husband started with what's described... More

A definite must when you visit Amelia island. Service was terrific so was the food. They had a large loud party there and accommodated us by moving us to another table and bought us desert for the inconvenience. By the way the taramiso was fabulous.

The food is good atmosphere is ok. The fact that kids were laughing and the manager coming over and basically asking us to leave was terrible. There plenty of places in the area that have good food with more pleasant owners!!

Nice atmosphere. Covered Patio dining and great for people watching. Located in the center of Downtown Fernandina. Good Italian food and wine. Bread was tough. Need to offer shaved parmesan with the olive oil. Better bread or warm it. Calamari and homemade salad dressings served with salads are super.

Great Italian food, prepared a little differently. Some really great specials, mostly on weekends. Seafood Lasagna is to die for!
