Really can't understand all the good reviews for this restaurant. Fine Italian dining it is not! We had the group menu and found it to be very poor. There was only 1 type of cubed cheese on the antipasto board and no mozzarella. Apart from the meat there was just pickled - what looked almost like frozen - veg (crinkle... More

The bread was great and the pasta with scallops and shrimp in Grand Marnier (orange and cognac blend) was perfect. The gelato also added the right touch to a wonderful meal served promptly and with a smile.

this family operated place serves good food, good prices for the high tourist area of Orlando, and friendly service. The pasta special of sea food and linguine was very tasty, as was the tortinelli. Finding a non-chain restaurant in the Orlando/convention center area can be a challenge, and this is one worth finding

We needed quick reservations for 11 people in family group. Found Ciao on Open Table and were able to get in within 45 minutes which was amazing. Our family group had a great time and felt that the food was very authentic and reasonable priced. My lobster bisque and veal parm was great.

This was a true Italian restaurant will wonderful food. The service was just OK with our waiter more interested in talking with his friends at a nearby table that taking care of our needs. The the food offset his lack of attention.

My wife and I and two other couples thoroughly enjoyed a Sunday night meal while visiting Orlando. The restaurant is located in a strip shopping center so it does not look like much from the outside but this is the perfect example of not judging a book by its cover. It is close to Sea World. Everything about the evening... More
