I liked what I got - homemade pasta with pink sauce. The prices seemed high to me relative to what you got and the atmosphere. It is convenient to the Marriott and the food was pretty good. It isn't a must-visit place.

Ciao is one of my family's favorite restaurants in St. Kitts. Their pastas are homemade and are delicious! The staff is friendly as well. We eat at Ciao several times a month! I highly recommend the Alfredo pasta and the Spaghetti with Pink Sauce. Their pizza's are great too!

We decided to go to here because Rock Lobster (another restaurant in area) was closed. We walked into the front of the restaurant and there was no air condition. We then proceeded to the back and the host greeted us. There is a back room (with air) but it was still a little warm. The menu is extensive and there... More

Close to the Marriott (Walking) and was recommended by local Vet students as "Pretty Good", we decided to try. When we arrived there was No one there? We sat in the back, the part that has AC. Block walls, concrete floors, nothing fancy at all. Italian menu. I ordered a seafood pasta dish. It was very good. My wife had... More

We wandered in here one afternoon thinking they didn't serve lunch. They do and have a wonderful area in the back which is air conditioned and cool on a hot day. They have a very nice menu and there were some repeat customers who obviously knew the owners who are very personable. Hubby had the lasagna which he really enjoyed... More

Place is small and cozy. The food was good in taste, but the portion was too small and we found it really expensive for what is served.

There are no views to enjoy but the restaurant is within walking distance of the Marriott Resort. Extensive list of appetizers; I enjoyed the melon and prosciutto. The wine list was limited but included a reasonable number of different varieties of Italian wines. The local Mahi Mahi with spaghetti was good, pappardelle with lobster in pink sauce was very good,... More

Had a wonderful dinner at this place on my last day in St. Kitts...wish I had found it sooner, but will definitely be back on my next visit. The food was made to order and so good. The owners came around to all tables to be sure their patrons were satisfied and that their food met their expectations. Keep up... More

This is one of those times when you really don't know how to review a place. We ate here on our trip - short walk down the street from the Marriott. Small Italian place. Food was fantastic! - I got the Lobster Bisque, which was a real Bisque, not a glorified cream soup like most of the time you order... More
