Ilde and Dario are the owners of this homely Italian Resturant. Ilde is warm and aims to please. Giving credit where credit is due.

I've lived here for six months and this is by far my favorite restaurant on the island. The service here is amazing (unlike many other local restaurants) and I was truly impressed by Ilde (owner) and her staffs' attentiveness. I wish I knew about it sooner. It is near Rock Lobster but it is so much better. Will most certainly... More

The concierge at the Marriott recommended CIAO to my colleague and I. This is not some wannabe Italian restaurant but the real deal. The husband and wife proprietors are truly Italian. They took the time to come outside to talk with us, and the food was amazing. Our waitress Marsella was also amazing. It happened to be my birthday, and... More

Quick 10 minute walk from the Marriott this restaurant has fabulous food and friendly owners. They made several customizations for us and did a great job of walking through the menu and explaining dishes. It happened to be Mothers Day and they went out of their way to make moms feel special including giving them roses. We all loved our... More

LOVED this gem of an Italian restaurant in Frigate Bay, near the Marriott. First of all, the food was to die for. Cooked from scratch, it can take a while to get the table served, but it's worth the wait! The warmth, hospitality, and genuine concern of the owners comes through in everything they do. I liked this place so... More

We have visited the island many times but this January we ate at Ciao for the first time. We had the Lobster Pappardelle and Lobster Ravioli. The food was amazing, never thought you could get such great Italian food in St.Kitts. We actually went back again during the week. That said the restaurant was outdated, a bit sad, and run... More

Northern Italy invaded St. Kitts, and are they lucky... and so were we! A short walk from the Marriott hotel and Resort, we were greeted by the hostess who had our reservation and table waiting. Bruchetta topped with fresh tomatoes marinated in a savory garlic oil was delicious. The menu posted traditional Italian dishes at moderate process. Their special menu... More
