We had a great dinner for Valentine's..very romantic inside. Great food . I had shrimp and scallops over linguine and my husband had a spaghetti carbonara.. prices are very reasonable and the service was great.. The owner Claudia was very nice she came around and talked to us. We will definitely come back.

I have been to eat dinner at this restaurant 3 times and each time it has been absolutely delicious. I highly recommend any kind of fish...always fish, prepared simply, elegantly but also with complex flavors...melt in your mouth!

This place has the BEST food and the FRIENDLIEST staff!! The food is always fresh and there is something to please everyone. Prices are good also. The staff remembers you when you go back. I feel like Tracy has become one of the family and always look forward to having her wait on me.

Every meal I have had at Ciao has been great. Excellent place for lunch - nice atmosphere and gourmet food. Prepare to be impressed.Over numerous visits, have had salmon prepared with several different sauces and it is always to die for. Today, Tracy was our server and she was very attentive and friendly.
