I have been several times to this resturant. They have different types of food, but pizza is their speciality and they are really good. However, it is a bit expensive. It is located downtown so a good place to have a business lunch.

Ciao Italia has become our first choice for the weekend dinner. Warm atmosphere, great food and a very sweet and active hostess who's always willing to give suggestions to help you choose from their menu full of varieties. Everybody is so friendly including the Chef who also have excellent recommendations for your dinner.

This is a nice Italian restaurant with a good service. The staff is very polite (the chef came to us to apologize because it was taking more time than expected). The food was ok, my friends and I all had different pizzas. Most of the pizzas were good, however mine, a classic Margherita pizza, was more like a plain cheese... More

It was the idea of one of my best Italian Architect in Senegal, the place is simple, the pizza is Italian very good indeed. Service is average. Chief is very nice, comes to your table to see if everything is good.
