Wonderful experience

Food was outstanding. I ordered lobster ravioli in saffron sauce and you could tell it was made by hand with care. The portion was just enough. We will definitely be back. Be prepared for slower island service but we need to slow down on vacation.

We just returned from Italy and found the food at Ciao to be identical to our dining experiences during our two weeks in Italy. Perfect flavors, warm and efficient service. We will return!

CIAO's are no longer next door to Rock Lobster but have relocated to the former PJ's location. Regular visitors to the Frigate Bay 'Zenaway Boulevard' strip will wish Pat and Jean well as their familiar green and white location continues to serve great food with an 'Itailano' flavour. Dario and Ilde will ensure you enjoy their new Ristorante's location with... More

Ciao is one of my favorite places to go to enjoy authentic Italian dishes. They make their own pasta and ravioli. Their portions fill you up! I always get Lobster Bisque and Lobster Pappardelle in white creamy sauce while my wife gets their French Onion soup and Spinach Lobster Ravioli. The owners are very friendly and are always there to... More

My fiancé and I went here on one of the last couple nights of our vacation in St. Kitts. My only regret is that we didn't go sooner because even though we went two nights in a row, we ran out of time to go again. The food was amazing and all homemade. I could've eaten there everyday. The owners... More

The owner is fantastic and the food was authentic. Best Italian meal I've ever had. Only downfall is the staff was a little slow and inattentive. If you're in no rush, I highly recommend ciao

We really wanted to rave about this restaurant. First off, very friendly staff. Nice environment . A little old school. Decor could be updated! The night we went there were three other tables. My husband ordered a dry Chianti. Who serves a dry, red wine, cold. Oh well. The owner did replace it. Stating that most people requested it cold.... More
