Description: My wife and I ate at Ciao Pasta on 21 July. This restaurant is a hidden gem in the Tilton/Franklin area. The food was excellent with a great choice of pasta, sauces, and "add-ons." They have a good selection of wine at very reasonable prices. The staff was friendly, courteous, and provided excellent service. With all the low end chain restaurants in the Tilton area, this is the best place to eat, by far.

Wonderful food, especially the specials they offer and very reasonable prices. However, it is no longer located in Franklin but they moved to Tilton off I-93 north, exit 19 now, but still very good.

But no longer in Franklin. They are only in the Northfield location. Very sad for us - used to be able to walk there. Great wait staff and the shrimp scampi pomodoro is out of this world.

This was hands down the most amazing Italian resturant I have ever been to. Me and my sister went while on summer vacation in New Hampshire with two older freinds who knew the place and the staff very well, and the service was welcoming and attentive. Me and my friend ordered homemade tortellini with a garlic and spinach filling in... More

The food was great tasting and the potions were large. The restaurant was quite busy both evenings I visited. The service was very good.

This is our favorite restuarant for italian food, It knocks your socks off, from the time you walk in the door when the garlic lights up your taste buds. The owner greets you at the door and seats you, wait help is exceptional, and food is to die for. Great experience all around

Four of us friends went to Ciao Pasta and had a fabulous meal. The smell walking into the restaurant will draw you in immediately! Nice complimentary salsa with warm bread while you peruse the menu. Drinks are very reasonable and a good selection, too. Some of us ordered the spinach salad which was so fresh and lightly dressed, just the... More
