New Favorite Orlando Italian Restaurant

The restaurant is just off International Drive. Coming from the Convention Center it is in the opposite direction of the other large restaurant areas, which makes it a little hard to find (it is behind Delmonico's Steak House), but I think it adds to its charm. The waiters are all older Italian... read more

Coming from the Convention Center it is in the opposite direction of the other large restaurant areas, which makes it a little hard to find (it is behind Delmonico's Steak House), but I think it adds to its charm.

Knowing this was the sister store of Vincenzo's, we decided to try it during one of our many trips to Otown. Don't let the location or strip mall construction deter you. The food was delicious and the service wonderful. Franco, our server, was a delight and very attentive. We enjoyed it so much, it was our choice for dinner the... More

We went here for dinner because my boss said it was a great little hidden gem. We were seated without menus. The waiter came over and took drink orders..still no menus..told us what the special orders were and then asked us if we would like to order appetizers and at that he realized that we did not have menus. We... More

We had dinner at Ciao Italia a week ago and it was even more wonderful than our first meal there. Domenico was our server. He couldn't do enough for us. When we told him that we were going to Italy in May, he jokingly said that he'd teach me Italian while we were there. The food is beyond the ordinary.... More

This little hidden gem (on a strip mall) is the only authentic italian I have found in Orlando. The linguini vongole was as good as it gets. My kids loved the pizza. When I write authentic, I mean is not your Carraba's kind of italian-american restaurant (I do like Carraba's though, so I am not saying this in a bad... More

We were hear with a group of 5 and had an outstanding experience. When we pulled in the parking lot, we were a little concerned. The center is under renovation and looked a little sketchy. When we entered, our minds were put at ease, immediately. We were warmly greeted, seated immediately and received excellent service. The food was very good.... More

We were a group of 9 guys on a long golf weekend in Orlando. It was 7pm and we were having a tough time finding someplace to eat with less than an hour wait. We literley stubled onto Ciao. It looked sketchy outside as the shopping center is being remodeled. But we were tired and hungry. Well the food and... More

This restaurant is exactly what everyone else is saying. Strip mall, expensive,cozy friendly waiters with accents, bella this bella that..know for the food not all dishes are made fresh nor are they anywhere near authentic italian food. The ravioli special was frozen not home made. Fish is not the Fresh Catch and the portions are small. How about the grouper... More

A colleague had been singing the praises of this spot for some time so when in the area we made a special trip one weekday evening to see what the aria was all about.

We used yelp to help us find an Italian restaurant after a round of golf. This restaurant got rave reviews and we can see why. Everything was well prepared and very delicious. The staff was proud to work here and was very friendly. It is in a nondescript strip mall but it is cozy and welcoming inside. The limoncello cake... More
