A fabulous Italian feast in a cozy family environment. The lasagna was the perfect blend of flavors and consistency to create a burst of flavor in each bite. The napoleon style pizza had a light crispy crust, favorable red sauce and fresh ingredients. The chicken piccata had a nice lemon flavored sauce with lots of chicken, artichokes and capers. The...

You go to a restaurant for the food. You will be rewarded at this Italian restaurant. We ordered the lasagna and the pork chop; both were excellent. It is small and tables are close together so it is noisy. Service is good and you can enjoy outdoor seating if you like. They are only open in the evening and they... More

A group of friends took us to Ciao and it immediately felt like home. Jill and Alex greeted them (and us) warmly and the entire little spot felt cozy and homey. They said the wait would be 45 minutes, but it was only about 20. We ordered EVERYTHING...meatballs, calamari, mushrooms, sausage, pizza, veal, lasagna, grouper and pork chop...it was all... More

Ciao is a small Italian family restaurant in the best sense of the genre. The Mushroom Bisque was the best I've ever had and our entrees, Roast Duck, Veal Marsala, Eggplant Parmigiana and Lobster Ravioli were excellent. The staff, though moving quickly, were attentive, interactive and forgiving. (We were having such a great time, I'm afraid we were a bit... More

We were a party of 4 that visited yesterday. A entree dish thst was listed as one of the day's specials was "sold out", even though we arrived when the restaurant first opened that day. Two people in our party ordered linguini with clam sauce-extra spicy. Their dishes arrived bland with no evidence of spice or flavor, whatsoever. When the... More

Lmelloteta, I'm so sorry that your Linguini with clams was received unspiced . I was informed by Alex of this error, and explained to him that the spice we add is crushed red pepper, which is also on each table. This way a customer can add this to their dishes, for their personal degree of spiciness. We find that customers... More
