Ciao 2!'s is now the fourth generation of a traditional Italian trattoria! We are a special combination of style and substance, a restaurant known for its craft beers, boutique wines, and classic Italian cuisine! Chef Sabrina, a native Pittsburger, carefully sources local produce and food stuffs whenever possible. Our chef has created brunch, lunch, and dinner menus as delicious tributes to the classic trattoria fashion! This being Pittsburgh, it is only reasonable that Ciao2! pays loving attention the liquid side of things.

Eggplant? Where?!

I met friends for dinner after work at this restaurant. One of the women in our group had a satisfying lunch there and thought it would be nice to try it for dinner.

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

Food was bland. Very expensive! People working there had no personality. Did not make my friends and Me feel welcome.

We arrived and Nick - the owner - explained that he had lived in Rome. The atmosphere created by video and photographs was lovely. The wine he recommended - lovely, complex and fruity. The food is pricey ...but quality usually is. The good news: The soup du jour was creamy and savory - a nice blend of garlic, beans and... More

We went to the restaurant in a fairly large group of 12. The place was busy, but we had a reservation and were seated right away. Our waitress was cheerful and friendly and provided very good service throughout the evening. The appetizers were quite good and I had soup instead of salad and that was good as well. However, my...

Quirky hard of hearing owner is likeable but has a hard time "letting go". He attempts to bar tend, be Host, take orders and serve meals. As a result he doesn't do any of them well. Best advice would be to stick to hosting, be welcoming and stay behind the bar. The food is generally good to very good -... More

My girlfriends and I decided to eat dinner here before going to a movie on a Saturday night. To begin with we were ushered into a cramped corner table/booth by our waiter/manager. He proceeded to give us menus and then rattle off the daily specials over emphasizing the Italian names of the dishes and their prices. We should have left... More

My husband and I decided to try this restaurant before going to a movie. We were there early on a Saturday and were the first to have lunch. The owner Nick was also our waiter.
