A Hidden Gem

Good food. Great service. Very much enjoyed our dinner. Had the seafood and pasta specials + plus really light and flavorful homemade desserts. The strip center is being renovated, but persist, they are worth the hunt.

I've been eating here for close to 10 years now each time I come to Orlando. It seems like the more popular it gets the worse the food gets and the more expensive it gets. The servers are always wonderful but the food is not as good as I remember

Last week while visiting in Orlando with our Granddaughters, we were advised by our hotel staff to visit Ciao Italiano. What a pleasant experience! We were served at our table by Dominico who was a most hospitable and enjoyable host. The food was great and the serving sizes more than ample. Our Granddaughters were delighted with the attention extended to... More

Located in an out of the way strip center, this little gem is a real find. Authentic Italian food served with a flurish of caring and genuine desire to please. We started with the mussels which were subpurb. The lobster bisque was ligjt tasty and dprinklrd with a generous portion of pieces of lobster. The eggplant parmesan was only outdone... More

I make it a point to eat at Ciao Italia whenever I'm in Orlando. The food is consistently very good. We were 2 couples for dinner in May. This was one of those nights where no one was particularly hungry so it was up to the restaurant to help us enjoy our dinner! They passed with flying colors. It was... More

Good wine selection and a good menu.Yes, its Orlando so expect this to be more Americanized italian food. Since its across from the Doubletree Hilton Orlando, their clientele seems to be a lot of tourists. Food - perfect wine- good and service - excellent. This one is a welcome relief from the awful resort food thats available in most of... More

Ciao Italia is in a small strip mall but don't let that fool you. It's an authentic Italian restaurant with very good food, professional service and a warm, pleasant atmosphere. It's definitely a step above other, more publicized Italian chain restaurants in Orlando.

Friendly staff, comfortable décor, excellent food. In the "Tourist" area, so could have fellow diners just out of park, so casual attire is ok for a fine dining restaurant. Nice selection, slightly priced high, but a very nice experience.

My wife and I try at least one new restaurant when on vacation. She did some online search and found CIAO for us. Family owned in strip mall under renovation. Don't let the outside scare you away. Also don't order the special, they tend to be expensive. We had a drink, spelt a salad, two delicious meals and a desert... More
