Stellar. Just stellar.

We visited based on their TripAdvisor rating. Food-wise we were not disappointed. One of the best veal parmigiana I have ever had. Our two young ones devoured their pasta plates- and they are picky eaters. There is no preprinted menu but server recommended . Our server was Robin ; as noted in other... read more

This was a cozy Italian restaurant located just a couple blocks from our hotel. We had made a reservation the month prior to our arrival and when we checked by earlier in the day they didn't have us listed. One of the staff, Ben, took our number and called us back within minutes to confirm they would have a table... More

We selected this restaurant based on reviews I found on trip advisor. While at our hotel, I asked the bartender for restaurant recommendations and Ciao was his first choice. Our dining experience at Ciao did not disappoint. The restaurant is small so it is best to make a reservation. The food is excellent, the service impeccable and it has a... More

The food at this Italian restaurant was fantastic-- this coming from a Toronto Italian woman who knows Italian authentic cuisine. Our group had fried calamari, different pastas and salmon, all excellent and worthy of doggy bags. Our server Ben was by far one of the best servers we encountered. So attentive, so nice, very thoughtful even bringing my husband chilli... More

Two couples had dinner this evening. Although crowded upon arrival, we were assured and seated quickly. Drinks, fresh home made bread, and herbs dip were provided. All had salad and mains: Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, Chicken Cachatore. While the overall dining experience was good to excellent, some discrepancies were noted and reported to staff: some of the salad lettuce was not... More

We just had our second meal @ this awesome restaurant and I still rate it as the BEST ever! We ate here last year and I was blown over by the outstanding flavors of the dishes. I was thrilled to come back tonight and I was not disappointed in my expectations. I ordered the Salmon special in lemon sauce w/asparagus... More

My 13 yr. old son and i had lunch. We split the shrimp marinara, Amazing! my son said as he ate his portion of the meal. We both loved that it had just the right amount of garlic, and was not overpowering. The salad with house dressing was the freshest we have had in a long time at a restaurant.... More
