Got there and we had made reservation online for wrong day. Hostess was a little confrontational, made us wait 20+ minutes though they had a table for our group ready. That said, food was great, all 8 really enjoyed. Servers was good. Deserts real good,...mains real good. The montepulciano d'abruzzo 2018 was okay not best. I would return. It’s definitely a good restaurant. We had pastas, seafood, meats, and all thought really well cooked. No complaintsMore

Dined here this week with another couple after reading the many positive TA reviews. . It was OK just not a memorable experience. Service was sporatic and the food was mixed -- some very good (Salmon a la vodka with penne was delicious) while others...were eh! (papperdelle with bolognese had a tomato sauce that was far too sweet). Prices were reasonable and decor was attractive. Location in a strip mall was undesirable as there was trash in the parking spots in front of the restaurant and seedy characters hanging around! Not our cup of tea.More

But - we were too stuffed because we ate every single bite!! Can’t rave enough about...the food - and the to go order had everything we needed including dipping sauce for the bread.

This is one of my favorite restaurants when visiting Orlando. The food is absolutely delicious and the service is impeccable. Carmelo was our waiter last night, he was wonderful and he suggested the braised short ribs which were out of this world. I highly recommend...Ciao Italia!More

We love Ciao Italia and return every time we are in Orlando- they never disappoint. We had a great server- Carmelo- very knowledgeable about Italian wines and super service. We shared the burrata appetizer, lovely creamy burrata, excellent prosciutto and peppery arugula. My husband had...lasagna, I had the Penne with Salmon and vodka sauce and we shared the crepe brûlée. Entire meal was perfect and delicious. Actually have reservations at their other restaurant Vincenzo’s - can’t wait!More

If you are looking for a nice moderately price Italian dinner this is a place to try. Currently the parking lot of the strip mall is having some construction done but ignore this. This is a family run place with excellent food and actual table...cloths if you are tired of the chain / sports bar places in the area. They serve a mixture of both southern and northern Italian dishes. Our group mostly tried the various pasta dishes and we were all very pleased. Highly recommend.More
