We have been coming to Myrtle Beach for 30+ years. We have tried many Italian restaurants in the area, and this is the only Italian restaurant with food that is comparable to what we have eaten on our trips to Italy. Our server Tracey was right on. The lightly battered calamari was comparable to the best we have eaten in... More

Because we took a wrong turn out of our parking garage and were rerouted, and the fact that we had two fussy children ages 3 and 4 months, we arrived 25 minutes late for our 5:30 reservation. With all this going on, we didn't realize we were that late. Upon arrival the host was extremely rude, chastising us for our... More

We are very sorry you were not impressed with your recent visit with us. We take reviews very seriously. It is our policy to seat tables when all party has arrived for their reservation. We made an exception for you being 30 minutes late for your schedule time. Being late it usually affects the next seating, that's why we would... More

Always get great food and service here. Newly expanded with additional seating and bar. Fifth visit and never disappointed. Servings are large and the specials are not quite as big but presentation is exceptional and taste is outstanding.

Excellent meals. We had veal Marsala, spinach, ham and walnut raviolis, and eggplant parmigiana. All very good. The ravioli dish could've been more generous as the raviolis are miniature and there were less than 10 of them. The house Italian dressing was very acidic not good for kids. Pay the extra $1.50 and get the Caesar salad. Had to switch... More

Nice decor, good service, and good food. Our group had chicken marsala, lobster ravioli, cheese ravioli, chicken parm, and lasagna. Everything was wonderful. There was also an extensive wine list; from which we had the sangria by the glass. Finally, had canollis for desert. We will be going back to Ciao on future trips.

Service is top notch. Food is amazing. Best to call for reservations unless having lunch. I had the Chicken Ciao. Large portions served and leftovers were just as good the next day. First time visiting since they made the restaurant larger. Nicely stocked bar and wine selection. A place we go to every time we are in Myrtle!

Arrived at 9.15, servers were very friendly and food was excellent, the best I have tasted in Myrtle Beach by far. Would recommend to anyone and ask for Julie as you server

This is on main road but need to keep eyes open or you will miss it. Good thing is that you can get a reservation which many restaurants do not allow. We had one and were seated immediately. It took a little bit to get initial drinks when seated. There was a large party taking our waiters time. We also... More

We have been wanting to come here and finally we did and we will definitely return!! We shared an appetizer special cannolini with chicken and mozzarella that was exceptional, a delicious salad with Gorgonzola crumbs and vinagerette and an order of veal Parmesan and veal Ciao, both with pasta. A definite gem of a restaurant!!!

Thank Araxie62
