Great authentic Italian food right in the middle of Whidbey Island. Great for a date night or lunch with the whole family. In the summer, you can sit outside and enjoy the view of Penn Cove. This visit we had the TPLT Pizza Sandwich, Italian Hoagie, and Baked Ziti. All were delicious. And don't forget the gelato and espresso for... More

We had dinner here with friends. I had their pork special and it was so good. The meat was so tender and flavorful. Our friends had some of their pasta dishes which they stated was delicious too. The only down side was that the service was a little on the slow side.

Decent menu, food is good. Proportion size is fair but has shrunk I've noticed over time. Wait time can be a bit. Gf I was with had an incident of owner being a bit rude to her regarding her parking in his lot supposedly. He made a point to open the door and yell at her and we stopped visiting... More

Very well prepared food, excellent staff and service! Prices are reasonable. Beautiful plating of meals. I had the baked ziti, my daughter had the Penn Cove Mussels, and my husband had the Pork wrapped pork special. Finished off the meal with tiramisu. They also serve pizzas, salads, sandwiches, gelato, and Italian sodas. Great place!

My wife and I had a very nice dinner consisting of well prepared shrimp scampi and baked ziti. The freshly made bread and olive pesto was excellent. The meal was finished off with hone made gelato. Well worth the visit

A friend and I decided to try this spot for lunch after enjoying a local hike. It turned out to be a wonderful surprise. Very casual atmosphere but delicious food. You can tell they take pride in what they are serving. Delicious Margherita pizza from an actual wood fire oven. And I assume if this basic pie is this good,... More

Ciao was hopping the night we visited. It had great energy and it was a wonderful scene. The servers were incredibly friendly and helpful. The food was fine -- far from bad but not at all memorable. The pasta was soft and bordering on mushy. For me bread makes or breaks an Italian meal and this bread was very plain,... More

We visited here after peak dinner hour and were seated immediately. The server was very friendly and helpful with questions we asked about the food. I had a salad pizza with arugula, Gorgonzola cheese, pear slices and walnuts. The crust was chewy and yummy. My husband had pepperoni pizza, as well as a side salad, and our granddaughter had the...
