Great ambiance and even better northern Italian cuisine! The owners take pride, and rightfully so, in the menu. Also, a unique Italian wine list added to the evening.

We went to Ciao recently based on close proximity to our hotel. I was worried when there was almost no one there. Not surprisingly we were warmly welcomed. I thought it was a good sign that there was a nice Italian lady proprietor. We ordered and a small plate of bruchetta was put on the table. So far so good.... More

This is pretty good, traditional, Italian cuisine. The owners are as Italian as spaghetti and offer a good range of freshly prepared dishes. Between the four of us we sampled lobster bisque, a very traditional onion soup, homemade lobster ravioli, ditto with spinach and ricotta and gnocchi with a well prepared Bolognaise sauce, all were well received. The place was... More

We go to St Kitts every year and always like to try places we have not gone before. Ciao was recommended to us by friends on the island and we were not disappointed....... enjoyed the description of all the home made pasta and especially impressed with guidance on just letting them know if we wanted an ingredient left off or...

Four of us went to Ciao Italian Restaurant for dinner tonight. The food was great. We all tasted each others food, so we all got to experience all the delicious food, We had pizza, which had lots of cheese on a typical thin Italian crust. One person had Chicken Panamanian, which had a different twist. It had eggplant and ham... More

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.

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
