This place is very "homey". The owners are always there. They check in every table and make sure you are truly enjoying yourself. I gave a good because I don't enjoy their pizzas and I had a bad pasta dish, it was too spicy and I couldn't even it eat it. But most of the time, it is really good... More

True Italian cuisine made from the hands of one woman (&staff)whos goal is to make your mouth sing with happiness. I am an Italian from Arthur Avenue in the Bronx NY... More

Picked up two pizzas (putanesca and funghi) for dinner. Simply put, Ciao has good pizzas that might as well could have been baked and served in Italy. Well worth a visit when you want the real deal, in contrast to the big chains.

We have been here many times and always loved the food. The last few times we got our favorite pizza to go instead of dining in. There has always been a problem getting a menu online and I never understood why. Now I do, they are so busy during the high season they don't really care about to go orders.... More

My husband & I have been here a few other times and the food was mediocre. This time, we ordered chicken Marsala over spaghetti as our entree. The Marsala sauce was slimy and tasted like it came out of a jar. The chicken was over cooked. We were hoping for a quiet dinner away from current political news. The owner,... More

We went as a couple without reservation and we're seated right away (there weren't many people there yet as we went early about 6ish, by the time we left the place was packed) the menu is not very large which is not a bad thing. Specials were interesting but we stuck with the regular menu. The place is rather dark... More

My wife Toni and me stopped for dinner yesterday (Friday Nov 11). The service was great, the ambience was great. Chatting with owner Jill was like talking to family.
