Took my wife to this restaurant to try it out because we love Italian Food. It was awesome! I had the fried cheese ravioli which was perfect. We got the baked Italian garlic cheese bread for appetizer. Everything we ate was great and we will be back for sure. It is one of my favorite places to eat now.

Visiting from Florida, this was my first meal in Little Rock. Very pleased with charming atmosphere and easy parking at dinner time. The Pomegranate Martini was awesome. And I've never, anywhere in the world... even Italy..., had better Tiramisu anywhere. Perfection. I ordered the Scampi Fettuccine for entrée and the shrimp were excellent but pasta was stuck together and really... More

Reasonable. Portions are about right. I had shrimp linguine with lots of garlic. Only six medium shrimp. Lots of pasta. Garlic bread was cheesy & good. Atmosphere was a store front with minimal enhancements, but worked fine.

The lobster bisque is to die for!!! The portions are on the small side and it is very expensive, but the food is tasty.

This restaurant is located in downtown Little Rock and parking is available on the street or in some lot nearby that no one uses at night. It's small but very nice atmosphere. About half of our party liked their meal and the rest thought it was average. My spaghetti noodles were still soaking in water in the dish like they... More

Small Italian restaurant situated in downtown Little Rock. Menu selections are numerous and portion sizes are big. Wine list is fairly impressive too. Authentic Italian cuisine at an affordable price.

I ordered grilled chicken and it was the worst chicken I think I've ever been served. To me, it seemed like it was microwaved straight from the freezer. Could only take one bite.

Nice lunch menu, and pretty quick service at lunch (they have a "lunch express" menu). Several vegetarian options available. Even a lunch portion of cheese tortellini pesto was more than I could finish in one sitting!

Instead of BYOB, it's BYOP! Before I was diagnosed with Celiac disease, I ate at Ciao's frequently and it is a wonderful place. Becky is attentive to her customers and Ciao's has the charm and ambiance of a neighborhood eatery. It's small and intimate with low lighting and comfortable decor. Once pasta became toxic to my system, however, I sought... More
