Wow! My husband and I ate here twice during our week stay in St Kitts. Our meals were bursting with flavor and abundance of lobster! The owners were warm and welcoming. Prices are reasonable and portions are large. Such a gem within walking distance from the Marriott. Also, you get a hug before leaving! Very Memorable experience!

This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel and offered a change from the ubiquitous Island food. The owners are very friendly, menu is wide , but quality is just okay. We ate on the patio which was nice but way way too light as was the inside of the restaurant.

Visited Ciao on January 20, 2015 while staying at the Marriott Vacation Club. Just a short walk from the hotel. The staff was friendly and accomodating, and the food was absolutely outstanding!! There were four of us, and we had Ceaser Salads and French Onion soup for appertizers. All were beyond our expectations. For dinner we had pasta with shrimp,... More

Poor value. Expensive. Lobster bisque and lobster salad plus bottle of pinot grigio ($50) total $106. Not much lobster in the salad but an empty shell and loads of lettuce and tomato. Bisque was tasty. Not much ambiance in the restaurant. Local staff friendly and good but initial attentiveness on arrival was slow. Better places to be found in Frigate... More

I created this a 3 but if available it would be a 2.5. The price far exceeded the value. This was NOT a $140 US meal, even in the islands. There are much better places to spend your money (La Belle Vie). We started with carpaccio that was a little strange. It was floating in a vinegar on a leaf... More

Ciao's is just a short walk from out winter home and is absolutely an amazing dining experience. This authentic Italian restaurant has been one of our favourites since it opened. The owners are from Italy and each time we visit it feels like they are welcoming us to their home for a special event. You must try Ciao's on your... More

Went tonight and experienced a great meal. The co owner came out and explained their difference in some prepared foods (ravioli) . It was cooked to perfection ( not over cooked)... And served with a very good marinara sauce... The total staff was very attentive to our needs.. An easy walk from the Marriott ...

Ciao is only a short walk from the Marriott, but the restaurant could easily be located in Italy. That's how authentic the cuisine is. In fact, the owners (a husband and wife) are both from Italy, and you can quickly tell how much they care about the dining experience for their customers. I brought my family here on Christmas Eve,... More

We had a very nice, relaxing meal. Affordable meals and wine list. Very accommodating owner and staff that is flexible with the menu. My son had a sunburn and owner picked fresh aloe for him. We will definitely go back, hopefully even on this vacation.
