Absolutely amazing, just like being in Italy. The owner is a very friendly gentleman & the food and service is amazing 😁

You wouldn't think to eat Italian food in St. Kitts but think again. This place has the best food we've had all week, not to mention the best Italian food we've had in months (and we live in a foodie city). We are going back tomorrow night for more.

We are at Ciao tonight right down from the Marriott in St Kitts! The owner was absolutely wonderful and she spent lots of time telling us about all of the specials!!! Her accent was delightful and the food was absolutely delicious!!!! I am not a big bread eater and I even ate three pieces of their homemade bread with the... More

I read a review about this restaurant and it was spot on. The service was extremely slow, we waited 20 min for a glass of water! The food was excellent though. So if you're not in a hurry, and don't mind being warm, even in the back room where there is air conditioning, then you can enjoy a good meal... More

Slightly strange environment as painted breeze block walls inside. Service fine. Home made pasta dishes very good. Pizzas fine but nothing special. Desserts nice.

Hate to do this as the service was outstanding but over $250.00 for 4 dinners and two were chicken that was a ripoff and that was without drinks. We ordered the lobster ravioli in saffron sauce and they were excellent. As was my lobster thermador but the 2 chicken piccata diners were horrible and the seafood dish was at best... More

As we approached, the owner said "we have air conditioning in the dining room". It must have been at that moment that she turned it on. The owner was very hospitable but the rest of the staff was fair. Wife wanted ice, never came. Food was palatable. Veggie lasagna was like a buttery pot pie with noodles, lobster ravioli was...

The best part of our visit was the woman who appeared to be the owner. She checked on us during our meal (we were awkwardly the only people in the place because we missed lunch and were eating so early!) and she gave us all hugs as we left. The food, however, was not that great. The gnocchi WAS nice... More

The food was very good but my shrimp in the pasta seemed a little stringy and not as fresh as I would have liked. The pasta was perfect el dente regardless and the sauce was exceptional. My wife had the green ravioli and it was a standout. Clearly pasta is their specialty. My son had the ribeye steak and while... More
