“Decent Italian food in St. Kitts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Walking distance from the Marriott is something that caught me by surprise....pretty good Italian food. I had homemade lobster ravioli in a saffron sauce, which was very yummy. My wife had a filet with Gorgonzola sauce, which she thoroughly enjoyed. The staff was very sweet and attentive. Give it a try and you may also be pleasantly surprised

“Authentic Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We did not a have reservations but were seated in a few minutes. A large party was arriving and the hostess made sure we got our order in quickly so we were not delayed for a long time. Would recommend the spaghetti Bolognese... the best I ever had! It was a delightful magical meal and time spent at Caio! Go there!

“Terrible dining experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I begrudgingly returned to Ciao after previously being unimpressed with the quality of the food. Not only did we all find the food underwhelming but the service was horrendous. We had to wait about an hour for our soup to arrive and then another half an hour for the entrees. A 2 hour dining experience with overpriced, bland food and little atmosphere. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone. So many better options on the island.

“sweet staff,”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

volume pasta with heavy cream sauce on all our entrees even the tomato based orders
if you really want to get toxic on carbs go for it
my side of fresh steamed veggies came under heavy camo (white sauce)

“Tasty but mediocre atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Very tasty food, polite servers, but mediocre atmosphere. Convenient location near the Marriott but we preferred Bombay Blues with better prices, food, and atmosphere--if you like Indian food.
