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.

Staying in Franklin on a three week driving tour of New England. Not a lot of choices in Franklin but this was recommended by our B&B. We were not disappointed. Cute and friendly spot with a very local feel. Very large menu with lots of choices and great flexibility to build your own pasta dish which was fantastic. Caesar salads... More

When traveling one never knows for sure, even if recommended by the Innkeeper. What I chose I was very happy with...Wild Mushroom filled pillows of pasta, Pesto Sauce, and one Italian Sausage. It was quite delicious. I also had a Caesar Salad, which I enjoyed- dressing on the side. The portion was just right...not so much that a traveler who... More

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
