This is one of my favorites. The chicken Alfredo is the best in town. Also love the Salmon. Best bread ever. I could make a meal off the bread.

Tucked away in an unassuming shopping stop, this gem offered amazing food. The ambiance and service was terrific. You can tell it's a local favorite. I highly recommend you stop in for dinner. Make a reservation, though. You want to make sure there is space for you as Ciao is tiny.

We happened upon this restaurant last year, quite by accident, and found it to be most delightful in the food and the service. We decided to go again this year. We did make reservations (as is suggested) and were seated promptly upon our arrival. The waitress was very lively and knew the menu well. I ordered the Chicken Parmasan. It... More

We love this little neighborhood Italian restaurant! The food is always very fresh and delicious. The waitstaff is attentive and friendly, always making you feel welcome. Last night, we arrived without reservations (not advisable), but Tim found us a spot, and Josh gave us wonderful service. We each ordered the eggplant tower appetizer, and it made a perfect light dinner.... More

Basic Italian restaurant. Nothing extraordinary. Bartender was great and friendly. Food was basic although both our pastas were over cooked. We didn't ask for al dented but it was overdone. Chicken parm was good. Worth stopping in.

We have been to Ciao's twice and it has improved greatly nowadays. A year ago it might have received 3 stars, but it's got a lot of potential with a strong menu of seafood, chicken, and pasta dishes. You can't go wrong with having the seafood served over spaghetti either; the mussels in marinara on spaghetti is one of their... More
