Fantastic, family operated restaurant. Highly recommend you try it, just don’t take my reservation. A real find.

Very limited menu, VERY small portions for a “Italian” restaurant. To be honest this is just a overpriced pasta joint with sauce out of a jar.

Had the pork cutlets. There were very good as was the green salad. The staff was also pleasant. They had seating which opened up to the outside. All in all it was a very good place to go n eat

What else but Spaghetti and meatballs? Excellent! Cesar Salad.. Brichetta... A little Vino... Can't wait to go back again! We suggest you go there early when you visit Amelia Island, so you can go back again before you leave! Bob and Susie Reynolds 🌴🇺🇸🌴

We had a nice meal at Ciao. I recommend the insalata di Capra and the tortellini. It has both inside and covered outside seating.
