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

Great food and excellent menu with choices to please all. Plain standard Italian fare or Italian with seafood. It is all very good. The staff is helpful and well trained. They don't really have a children's menu, but they can make what they like and don't mind having children there. Excellent wine menu.

We recently had dinner at the restaurant and were impressed with the wait staff and quality and value of the food. It is located on Center St downtown Fernandina with immediate access to all stores and shops. Dinner selections were varied and expertly explained by the wait staff.

We are from NJ and are spoiled with many great restaurants.We moved to Greenville,SC and have not had a decent Italian meal in 5 years. Vacationing at the Omni beach hotel led us to our first meal at Ciao's. It was incredible, I had the chicken marsala and it was awesome. My daughters ate the mussels which were tasty and... More

Seafood lasagna was beyond excellent, the right blend of seafood perfectly prepared. Chicken parm was outstanding also. Very good service but weak air conditioning, it was unpleasantly warm inside.

My husband and I have a great dinner. We stopped in as a last minute decision and were pleasantly surprised at how quickly they were able to accommodate us. They were very busy and we were afraid the service was going to be terrible but the food was great and the kitchen definitely has there timing together. The server warmly... More

We were seated as soon as we walked in. We opted to sit outside and quickly we were served two glasses of water bread and a delicious pesto dip. We started with a couple of glasses of wine and two appetizers the fried calamari which was light, crisp and delicious and the Caponata which was also very tasty but a... More
