A lovely little restaurant tucked in a shopping center

Ciao 2 was highly recommended by some "foodie" friends. I have passed by this restaurant many, many times while shopping but never thought to try it until our friends told us that we needed to try it out. It has less than 20 tables and a small bar. I believe that the manager / owner was our... read more

Some of the best Italian food I have ever tasted. This was my second time at Ciao 2, and the food was great both times. Some of the best Tiramisu I have ever had!

Amazing service and food!! Ciao 2 served lunch for my family (over thirty people) after my Grandmother's funeral on Saturday. We were served family style the most amazing appetizer, salad, chicken parm, pasta and tiramisu. Service was the perfect speed - every request was honored with a smile and we never felt rushed. I cannot say enough good things about... More

My friend and I had lunch at Ciao 2 to celebrate her birthday. The location, in the mall at Settlers Ridge, is ordinary, but this small family owned restaurant is not. My husband and I have enjoyed dinner here on several occasions, and have never been disappointed. The food is creative, fresh, and has never disappointed. This was my first... More

Had the zucchini appetizer which was also very good. Good wine list however a little pricy. Service was excellent and the dishes were... More

Had dinner with my grandchildren, 5 and 10. They had dinned there before, anticipation of the meal kept there attention. The food was excellent, staff friendly. A bit pricey, but worth it.

We enjoyed our visit to CIAO2. Many creative meals are offered at the restaurant at strip mall at Settlers Ridge. The owner was cordial and the service was great. Just know that the prices are a little high, but the meals are good

Stopped in on Saturday night with friends and had a great time. Sat at the bar and Rob took great care of us. Nice wine selection. Ordered the flatbread special appetizer which was very good. Veal dishes and scallop specials also very tasty. Menu very extensive so lots of other options in addition to the daily specials. Have eaten here... More
