If I could do 10 stars I would. Food preparation and presentation was superb. Service was wonderful not hovering and there if you need it. This is truly authentic italian food in a nice setting. Place is small so reservations is recommended. I will never forget my meal, which does not happen often. This place is a must if you... More

I was part of a group of people having lunch at Ciao recently. Our group included 2 toddlers. The server knew to bring the toddlers meals first. Smart! Our meal was excellent! The service was excellent and the value was excellent. I would highly recommend Ciao and look forward to my next trip to Myrtle Beach so I can try... More

Ciao is located in a very small strip mall which you can drive by if you're not looking. The storefront is nothing special, but when you walk through the door, it is so quaint and comfortable and not very big. We were asked if we had reservations, we did not. This didn't seem to be a problem since we were... More

we found this place online, because we just wanted to try a new place and were in the mood for Italian. We loved the food. I had the walnut and spinach ravioli and it was to die for. My husband had Veal cacciatore and said it was wonderful. We ordered the broccoli soup first and it was very good. The... More

We dined at Ciao's last evening and I think it is the best Italian fare we have eaten in Myrtle Beach. Everything we ordered was very good as was the service. I would recommend the Spaghetti with Calimari FraDiavlo, it was exceptional. The only down side of Ciao, is that it is small and feels a bit cluttered with the... More

Ciao! is by far one of the best italian restaurants in the area despite the not so attractive exterior. Knowledgable wait staff in the world of wine is a must for me and I am never disappointed in the wine selection when dining here. Get the portabello with crabmeat appetizer. It will melt in your mouth! Veal marsala is always... More
