Had the pepperoni pizza one night and the jerk chicken pizza an other night. Thin crust, sauce is excellent.

“Excellent food & service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

If you want a break from jerk chicken & seafood, Ciao Jamaica is a top option (although they do serve Jamaican dishes as well).
We sat on the balcony with a lush, flower-spangled view of greenery (no ocean views, but we were staying on the beach).
The pizza was delicious, with just the right thin crust & fresh toppings. The snapper melts in your mouth.
The service was prompt and attentive (unlike many places in Jamaica).
The owners also operate SamSara resort across the road and a small hotel on 7 mile beach. Ciao Jamaica had an atmosphere of being tidy & efficient, a well run establishment which takes good care of its customers.

“Long wait but great food!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Had a birthday party at Ciao. It was a group of almost twenty of us, mostly kids. We had a very long wait for our meals but the server did a good job. I assumed they would try to serve the kids first but no one thought of that. Despite the wait, all the meals were excellent. We will be back though.
