Waitstaff person was great, she told the chef and brought another dish of Veal Florentine even though I told her I did not want another dish. Totally different dish, three pieces... read more

Stopped for lunch here while driving nearby... Small restaurant, quiet, good atmosphere, staff was vey friendly. Food was excellent, not sure if they make their own bread but it was very good... Dessert was delicious! Can not ask for more, will definitely come back. Nice place to enjoy dinner with your significant other!

My husband and I have lived in Myrtle Beach for years and have dined at Ciao! numerous times. The restaurant is family owned and several of the waiters have worked at Ciao! for years. Typically you are greeted at the door by ,Eugen, the owner. The restaurant is charming, on the small side with approximately 20 tables. The food is... More

Our friends had been before; this was a first for my wife & I. This restaurant was very, VERY good. I asked for the Lobster Ravioli-just loved it. The portion was filling, and I thought priced very fairly. My wife loved the Chicken Picatta. The wines were fairly priced, and delicious. We all (8) just loved this restaurant.

I stopped by this cozy but elegant Italian restaurant and was pleasantly surprised! The food delicious, pleasant service, and a nice atmosphere. Highly recommended, and the prices aren't bad either.

This is our second visit to Ciao and they met the high expectation again. The food is really fresh and of high quality. The fried calamari, soup, and salad were fantastic. Our entrees were just as great. We finished the night with yummy deserts. A great way to end our vacation in Myrtle Beach.. Chubby approved !!!

We spent a wonderful New Year's Eve at Ciao this past week. Hubby and I were pleasantly surprised with the fantastic menu that was written for the evening's celebration. We enjoyed the seafood crepes and the stuffed peppers for an appetizer. The amuse bouche tasting was excellent - the sauce was so bright and fresh.....it was wonderful. Then the hubs... More

We are regulars to MB and always check TO for unexplored restaurants. We love a good Italian dinner but not many match up to our taste. Well, last night we visited Ciao and were very pleased. First let me say the ambiance is not remarkable, but not terrible either. It's a small restaurant and we sat closest to the archway... More
