This was my first time and my last time to this restaurant. Seated at 7:30 walked out at 10pm the last people in the place. Service is very slow, and not on the money at all, drink glasses sit empty, bread basket gone, plain oil to dip your bread in. This is what they call "upscale" and "authentic" Italian I... More

We had a wonderful dinner here. Charming restaurant with a great menu. My favorite in Toledo. Quiet and intimate. Just good cooking with wonderful presentation.

Good ambiance, but hit and miss with the food quality. For the price, it should always be a hit and I'm batting a 50% average right now. The menu is offered on a tablet as opposed to a paper menu. I personally don't like this but understand the economics of changing something electronically than printing a whole new menu.

Ciao's is a first-rate Italian restaurant, located on the main drag in Sylvania. The appetizers were especially yummy. The various sauces are light. The pasta dishes were praised by all. I did think, however, that the chicken parm lacked flavorful taste. But you can't go wrong here. Plenty of parking, upscale dining room, reasonable prices, and an attentive waitstaff complete...

There isn't anything we don't like about Ciao's. It starts with calling for reservations...they are always accommodating. If we request a server, they tell us if he/she is working, and what time he/she starts. The server (no matter who it is) is always knowledgeable of the menu, and friendly, yet professional. Then comes the food...just terrific! Never had an 'average'... More

Good food and wonderful service! We had a leisurely meal on a Sunday night before a concert at Centennial Terrace. I loved that we never felt hurried or rushed by staff trying to turn a table over. The food was a little pricy but the service made it well worth it. If we ever come back to Sylvania, I'd come... More

we usually go on our birthday to get the half off special. This time service started out pretty good, but really suffered after getting our drinks. Waiter may have had too many tables, or he seemed to be a chatty kathy at every table. Dinner took 2 hours from start to finish, just seemed too long waiting for salad, main... More

Excellent food and services - we do every birthday at Ciao - Italian food is interesting and much more than typical than spaghetti and lasagna place.

Sitting on the patio is nice, although it's right off the expressway. Hostess asks if you would like to purchase bottled water "or just gave Sylvania's finest". Live music was very nice: entertaining while not overpowering. But the food? Just average. Selection is very limited. When asked if we wanted soup, the only one they offer is gazpacho! Service was...

My husband and I went to Ciao as a "last meal" before the arrival of our newborn son. We sat on the patio and it was very nice. The staff was great and both of our meals were very good. We'll definitely be back for entrees and cocktails (once I can drink again.)
