Loved the pasta! Fair priced. I ordered a Fettuccini with chicken and pesto, and it was simply divine. The wines are fairly priced too.

We happened upon this little Italian family owned gem a few days ago. We almost all had a seafood pasta dish of some kind. The scallops were the best I've ever had, shrimp cooked perfectly and the grouper was like butter. The creme brûlée was so creamy. They just know how to prepare everything perfectly, don't miss this one. The... More

We were spending a couple of weeks in Orlando and were looking for a new place to eat. We ran across Ciao Italia while looking online for a place near the church where we were going to Saturday afternoon services and decided to give it a try. The place is in the corner of a nondescript strip center and we... More

If you want good, authentic Italian you must find this place. It's a little hidden in a strip mall, but right next to Delmonico's Steakhouse. Great place. Just be aware the tomato sauce is not thick, chunky red sauce it's more liquidy but very good. The seafood dishes are great as well. The stuffed veal chop was HUGE and excellent.... More

I went to this restaurant with 2 friends and we all had pasta, and they were very good. One of my friends ordered ravioli, and the plate was too small. But the others, penne with pesto, were fine. We had wine, there were some nice options, normal prices. We liked the restaurant.

This is a true Italian place! Everything from the service, to prices, to fantastic food was excellent! It looks unassuming as it is in a strip mall, but this is a must go if you want Italian food in Orlando. Great for dates, friends' night out, or business travelers.

This is a must for dinner if you are in Orlando. I had one of the best meals I have ever had. The atmosphere was quaint and the service was wonderful. I wish this place was in Kansas City...I would eat there every week!!!!!

Service was great... We were a group of six and they were very attentive to each of us. The food was delicious and very fresh. Everyone enjoyed their meals. They have a large selection of wines.

Extremely expensive for the quality of food that they serve. The fish isn't fresh at all and bolognese is bland. Also 13 dollars for a glass of wine and 18% of tips already included in the bill with no option to decide. I'm sure Orlando can offers much better restaurants.
