If you are looking for some fine dining in Myrtle Beach, Ciao will be sure to please. The service was top notch only second to the amazing meal. Be sure to make reservations because seating is limited.

This restaurant is very small and would be easy to miss even though it is located on a main road. Reservations are a must as we went on a weeknight and the place was packed. All four in our party ate different dishes and each of us was completely satisfied with the taste and the portion size.

This was recommended to us by a local friend and we had a very pleasant dinner. Enjoyed the Carbonara (creamy & smoky bacon taste) and ravioli. Small, friendly atmosphere

We chose to eat here based on the trip advisor reviews. We were there at 4:45 on a week night. We were the only ones in the restaurant until after 5. Service was great and so was our food. My daughter and I split the chicken fettuccine. We even had left overs. We ordered tiramasu for desert. I didn't really... More

I've spent a lot of time in Myrtle Beach. Tired of eating in chain restaurants, decided to try Ciao. It was awesome. Great service; wonderful food. Had fried goat cheese over arugula, and the halibut ---my family had mussels, veal parm, swordfish. Consensus was that it was delicious!

Stayed at the Marriott Oceanwatch, so Ciao was within 5 minutes of the resort. Ate there after a round of golf. We had lots of questions for Tim (our waiter) and since everything on the menu sounded delicious, he helped us narrow down our choices. Food and Service was fantastic -- You won't be disappointed.

The serving staff were great, very attentive and personable. The menu's seemed to cover everything and the wine list was excellent! We ordered Caeser Salad to start, it was ok, lettuce was fresh and cold but... More
