“Pizza is phenomenal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

The place isn't huge or fancy - fine dining it is not but the food is fantastic. Pizzas were so delicious. If in the Scarborough area I suggest you pop in and enjoy.

“Delicious food, attentive service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

My family spent a week in Scarborough and visited Ciao Pizza twice. Everything was made with fresh quality ingredients. The restaurant seems to only have one waitress but she works incredibly hard.

Some of my favorite dishes were the insalata caprese with basil ice cream (it was unusual but tasty) the carbonara pizza and their gelato! Their Pina Coladas are also great.

I would recommend trying to sit on the left side of the restaurant, on the right side the deck is uneven so it's a little awkward.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

This is my second time at this restaurant. The service is exceptional and food delicious. I requested an adjustment to an item in the menu and it was done with a smile. This is a really great place.

“...ice cream too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Pizza was delicious as were the ice creams after. It is a popular restaurant so booking is essential. On the night we couldn't get in but they accommodated us in their 'pub' type restaurant next door.

“Laid back and cool.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Travellers hoping for good food in relaxed surroundings in Scarborough better cross their fingers...hard. If you're hoping to do that at dinner and pay reasonable prices, well good luck: Scarborough is mostly about take-out chicken chains and actually eating at the restaurant is a novel concept here.

Ciao offers excellent Italian thin-crust pizza, pasta, good salads, wine and great Italian beer and you sit on the veranda, which provides an educational view of the Scarborough night scene (I've never been there before dark. It really is Italian and the atmosphere is pleasant and informal but plan on a reservation if it is a weekend evening or the height of the tourist season. There aren't that many tables (maybe 7?) and just showing up could mean that you have to wait. Or sit at the bar and have an Aperol or a spritz. It can get busy but you never feel overlooked and people actually seem happy to see you.

Dessert might be home-made tiramisu or a gelato from the noisier cafe/bar next door. I loved the Carib beer gelato.

2 people, beer, huge salad to share, foccacia, pizza, service charge: about TT$250. You can park out front. Ciao is a 5 minute walk from the port administration building.
