This restaurant was such a nice break from the usual chicken nuggets and burgers and fries. It is a small family run business with exceptional service and very welcoming. I recommend you visit on your trip! Thanks Ciao Italia!

I love this restaurant and this was my second time having dinner there on a visit to Orlando. Our family of 4 had a wonderful dinner at Ciao Italia, which was a welcome break from the overpriced and poor quality food you get Universal's theme parks. We had a rental car so we decided one night to make the short... More

Found this restaurant from the dine 4 less discount card, when we arrived kids laid into me as building work being done. However, that all changed when we entered we received a great welcome and with the food on offer we could not fault the place. So nice to go to a restaurant in Florida that doesn't have loud music...

We came here as a family during a Disney trip. We were sick and tired of the chain places in the area. Almost couldn't find this place because of all of the construction going on. My first order was a chicken dish with red peppers in the stuffing. I felt it was undercooked but the wait staff and cook didn't... More

Where do I start? The waiter seemed nice until we decided to order the cheaper items on the menu which really seemed to tick him off. Also, he seemed to find it funny that my brother ordered a pizza? When the food did arrive it was barely palatable. Me and my mum had lasanga and it was so heavy I... More

Recommended by hotel staff. We went early to eat with our 2 children. Food was fresh and delicious. Meals were out in less than 10 minutes. Three of us ordered off the menu while my husband had a seafood pasta special. Service was also perfect. Loved it.

The staff was friendly and attentive, the setting was typically Italien, the food was very average. It certainly wasn't bad, but it nothing to distinguish itself either. Probably not quite worth the money.

I went there during a convention in Orlando. I got the Veal special which was thinly sliced Veal wrapped around fresh Homemade Mozzarella and roasted, It came with a mushroom sauce. It was the largest veal dish I've ever seen. The combination of the fresh mozzarella, sauce, and the savory meat, made this absolutely the best veal I have ever... More

From reading other reviews it seems as though the food and service may be decent if you go early, but go at 9.30 pm and you're out of luck. Yes, we went late but the service was atrocious! The second it hit "closing time" the staff proceeded to slam the chairs and silverware in order to let us know it... More
