“Best pizza in Cape Coral!”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Excellent Southern Italian cuisine. As a vegetarian, what a treat to have so much to choose from: excellent eggplant entrees, stuffed shells and the best red sauce I have had in Cape Coral. Hubby had Chicken Piccata which he said was delicious. Plus best pizza in Cape Coral. homey atmosphere with owners always visible and involved. Nice to have a local mom and pop type place to go. Chain restaurants can get boring.

“Best Pizza in Cape Coral Hands Down!!!!!!”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

We are cape coral residents and have tried all of the Italian restaurants this town has to offer. Today we came across Ciao for the first time and are very pleased to find it! We had the four mushroom pizza, Cesar salad, Italian wedding soup and Italian cheesecake. We cannot say a bad thing about anything we ordered. The staff was personable and prompt. The prices were reasonable considering the norm for italian restaurant prices. People, if you want italian food in the cape, go here.

“Italian at it's best”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

The veal was terrific, the pasta was perfect, the salad was excellent. In Cape Coral, there are several Italian restaurants but don't miss this one!

“*good pizza nice cozy atmosphere*”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

my rating for this place is good the hostess-owner jill greets you and make you feel at home, we had an appetizer again as in some of my other reviews portion size is a little light as another hand-full of calamari would have been a decent size portion, the pizza was good sauce and mozzarella topping tasty crust was ok, service was good but our server was not accurate in his slice count for a 10" pie he said it was 8 slice it came out 6 ok not a big deal. but i do think its inappropriate to put on the bottom of the guest check a recommended tip percentage especially if its just for two parton's , i am gonna recommend this place because i thought the food was above average we did not get a chance to order an entree as we were in the mood for an app & pizza and will try another time!
