Had several meals here during a 5 day trip to Coupeville and this was the best pizza I've had in a long time. Their home baked bread that's made right there in the pizza oven was amazing. Loved the atmosphere here and stopped on the way home for pizza, bread and gift mugs to take home. I will definitely be... More

We stopped in for a very late lunch and split a pizza and had 2 glasses of pinot grigio. The "Ciao Down" pizza was thin-crust, baked in wood-fired oven with house-made sausage, olives, cheese, olive oil, and peppers. It as yummy and the service was good. Definitely a top pick after a walk at Fort Ebey State Park.

Stone-fired pizza at its best. Fresh, hot, delicious. We had some tasty desserts too: tiramisu and something scrumptious with berries on top. I walked in, ordered, walked around the area for ten minutes, and when I returned the staff was concerned I wasn't there. Maybe they thought my pizza would get cold, but it wasn't and I had to drive... More

During our trip to Whidbey Island, we visited Ciao for the second time (actually fourth if you count the fact that we returned to eat Saturday nights). We continue to enjoy the ambiance and the food. We are not big on mussels but they have plenty else on the menu. Great location, great food, excellent service!

Their pizza is good, make no mistake about that. Probably the best of several really good wood oven pizza places on this island. The chef/owner talks of cooking Napoli style pizza and after having been to Naples recently I agree, he is pretty close. Fresh ingredients and a very hot oven. The other items on the menus are hit or... More

I have been here a couple times now. Both were a visit with a dear friend. The food here is delicious. I have had a couple different pizzas that they offer. One was a traditional pepperoni and the other was a veggie type pizza with spinach and a white sauce. Absolutely delicious. The pizza comes on a thin type crust.... More

Visited because of trip advisor review and we were very pleased with staff and food quality. Salad and pizza perfect for late lunch. Would recommend and go back again if in Coupeville.

Oh my!!! This is authentic Italian food. Absolutely amazing! The service is so warm and friendly. I have not had this kind of Italian food since a friend from Naples, Italy made her authentic Italian dishes. This is cooking, Naples. Italy style. Just the aroma when you walk through the door will convince you to dine here.

Excellent food served with great live entertainment. For was prepared well and the service was fantastic. All four shared all meals at our table and there were no flaws. The mussels are a must. Can't wait to go back.
