Salad and Pizza Italian Style

I used to love this place. They have gotten over run by those visiting the Island. The Pizza is pricy but very Neopolitian. The salad ingredients have been hand picked by the owner when he takes his Vespa to the local coupeville market and buys only local produce. I would not go there for the pasta.

We've lived on Whidbey Island for many years, but last night was our first visit to Ciao. We were seated upstairs and at first I was a little concerned because there were musicians playing. I feared that the music would be intrusive do and not allow for conversation. I was surprised and delighted to find that the music was a... More

We were looking for a quick lunch and happened upon Ciao. What an amazing surprise - we were treated to one of the best meals ever. We ordered several dishes and shared, so we got to taste the locally harvested Penn Cove mussels steamed in a balsamic broth, served with freshly baked bread. We gobbled up the antipasto plate, which... More

My husband and I were visiting Coupeville for the weekend and went to Ciao on the Saturday night. We were "greeted" at the door by a young girl who was quite clearly run off her feet but had the worst customer service we have ever experienced, given how rude and abrupt she was. We were shown to our table which... More

Housed in a former law office and then deli, the current owner Mark Lasko has transformed this space into a taste of Naples -- Italy, that is, not Florida. This is the only place I will go for pizza and a glass of vino. But beware, make a reservation during high times because there is always a wait to get... More

Love the food here--great eggplant sandwich and pizza. Kind of pricey, but the quality of food is worth it.

Pizza is the best we have found on north Whidbey Island as well as best thin crust for the whole area around Whidbey.

Very good Italian dining - best Coupeville has to offer. Friendly attentive staff with a diverse menu. Near Coupeville's waterfront - enjoy the outdoor dining when the weather allows.

Awesome food and magical staff! We had dinner here both nights, and a total of eight different entrees, and everything was ultra delicious, and presented beautifully by really, really nice staff. We also stopped by for espresso the next morning.
