First looks are deceptive. It is in a strip mall that looks a little bit seedy. Inside, it is a nicely furnished restaurant with friendly, efficient staff. The food was fresh and not overly seasoned. This place rivals my favorite restaurant in New York's Little Italy. The tiramisu was outstanding.

Curiously from coincidences incredible things happen. We had planned to dine out no more than a few sandwiches and in a small shopping plaza we found this place. We decided to go inside and did not regret it at all. The food is amazing as well as the service, all very well-prepared traditional dishes of italy. Although we all know... More

Went for dinner November 17th after reading trip advisor reviews. My husband ordered the house speciality "veal chop" which came with 1 baby potato and a few tablespoons of overdone peas. Cost $55 I order the pasta special. Sirloin tips overcooked and tough; pasta sauce tasted like canned gravy. Cost $27 We found the staff friendly; the decor adequate but... More

Starting with a cocktail is my normal activity, they only offered beer and wine. The wine we got was an exceptional Merlot. The food was good, but the Lobster Ravioli was all cheese. Perfectly cooked pasta, but with just 2 small pieces of lobster in the stuffing.

This is a small restaurant in a shabby strip mall. You might not even notice it is there as you drive by, and in Orlando with thousands of restaurant choices in more attractive areas, it would be easy to miss this one. The food is well above average, the service is attentive, but slow. You will have plenty of time... More

Just finished a wonderful meal here... Had the calamari upon the recommendation of our waiter it was outstanding, delicious and so tender, served bathed in a wonderful lemon sauce that you will mop up with the crusty bread. Two of us shared the stuffed veal chop, it was outstanding. I would recommend this small owner operated restaurant on this restaurant... More

It is not easy to find a good non chain restaurant in the Orlando,Florida area where their is every chain one can imagine! Ciao Italia is the type of restaurant that you think that Mama is in the kitchen cooking the meals. The Veal Parm was not dry and over cooked, but very moist with a great tomato sauce. Great... More

After reading some of the reviews, we weren't sure we wanted to try this restaurant. It seemed like every other review was negative. We finally decided to try it anyway. The reviews about the area are very true, it is in a strip mall with many vacancies and is located by a massage parlor and a dry cleaners. Although there... More
