Food was amazing and staff was very friendly. I have to use at least 100 more characters. So I'm going to keep typing until then.

The best dining secret tip in Myrtle is that Ciao lunch is just as good as dinner and has a quarter of the diners! Ciao has one of the best mom & pop italian restaurants in Myrtle Beach for dinner, but it NYC seating tight! Elbow to elbow with the neighboring table. Luckily, no one goes for lunch, or very...

this was worth the wait. I called on a Thursday for a reservation, they were booked; but said they had an opening on Saturday the Fourth of July. I took it, was super excited. Food was amazing, all homemade. I had the Lasagne was just perfect. My friend had the Chicken Parmisean. Pasta just melts in your mouth! I loved... More

We dined on Saturday evening at 6:30 without a reservation. The manager was able to fit us in as it's small and busy and that started the visit nicely. Once seated Josh D. was very accommodating to our wants and needs. He suggested some good Italian wines and was able to serve our 9 year old the most "delicious" lasagne... More

So glad we stopped and can't wait to go back! In fact we wanted to go back a second time but we ran out of time. Josh D. was our waiter and was very attentive; we didn't wait or want for anything. The food was the best Italian we've ever had with very large portions and reasonable prices. The bread... More

We had spent a long hot touristy day at the Broadway shops and were not sure if we wanted to eat in or take dinner back to our room. We decided to place a to-go order over the phone and relax at the hotel. When I saw all the families and couples dressed up inside the beautiful restaurant I knew... More

We were there on a Saturday evening, and we're a bit disappointed in what is the Number three rated restaurant in Myrtle Beach. The Bride had Spaghetti and Meatballs. The meatballs were tasty, but we were surprised to find out that the Spaghetti was NOT home made. The marinara sauce was good with a nice little spice to it. I... More
