Friendly staff; good Italian food

It was our delight to visit this family owned/operated restaurant. All staff were friendly and accommodating. Bread was 'ok' but everything else was delicious. We would go back again!

It's one of our favorites not only for the food but for the atmosphere and service. Be forewarned, there is construction going on in the plaza it is located in so it may be... More

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this restaurant. The atmosphere is light and welcoming, the staff is friendly and engaging and the food was incredible. Especially enjoyed the WIld Boar Papperdelle and the sauteed calamari!

Lovely little place not well signed due to refurb on the plaza. My husband and son both opted for the home made meatballs and pasta & I had veal marina. Both hubby and son enjoyed the meal although two tiny meatballs with a small portion of pasta wasn't quite enough. My veal was ok just too much cheese and not... More

We were right across the road from this restaurant but due to the work taking place on the strip mall it is in, it looks pretty average from outside. Nevertheless we decided to try it and wow, were we pleased that we did! My son had meatballs - well, one giant meatball - and said it was the best he'd... More

Very Authentic. The Filetio was delicious. My kids are everything that was placed in front of them and my kids are picky eaters. The staff was friendly and very amusing. Would go there again.

This Italian restaurant is in a small strip mall on Westwood Boulevard, just off International Drive. When I arrived on a recent weekday evening for dinner there were only a couple of other diners there, but by the time I left they were getting busy. Their strip mall is being renovated and I barely found the place; they don’t have... More

Authentic down to the table cloths! Do yourself a favor and go to this restaurant! Chicken parm was outstanding and save room for desert. Tiramisu was was light and delicious. Skip going to chain Italian and go for the real deal. Fantastic.

Every time we come to Orlando this is our first place to go. Whenever we know someone going to Orlando we tell them to try Ciao. We are always treated like family here. Food is always wonderful including the lasagna. Great job
