“Not authentic Italian”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

This place was recommended by a friend.
When I arrived, it took about 15 minutes for someone to acknowledge that we were there.
The waitress seemed annoyed that we were at her table. Our drinks were not filled but the one time.
The food was tasteless. Definitely not authentic Italian. The sauce tastes like it was strait out of the can. I won't go back again.

Let me first start off by saying I think this review of our restaurant is fraudulent, meaning this is grossly untrue. For you to sit at a table for 15 minutes and not have anyone come to your table for service, is unheard of...my servers are very attentive to all customers, within a normal time period, and if it is not the servers area...he will still come over to let you know your server is on his way. Secondly...we have NO waitresses...so this claim is false, that she didn't want you at her table, really??...in a TRUE Italian Trattoria, only male servers are employed. Third of all...we are 100% made from scratch Italian...my sauce does not come straight out of a can, and truly we have rave reviews of all of our from scratch food items..as you can read from our other reviews on Tripadvisor, not that you would know the difference by your other reviews..Poorly rating the number 1 & 2 restaurant on Tripadvisor out of 300 restaurants, means you know nothing about quality. In our defence...to stand up for the LOVE, HEART & SOUL that goes into each and everyone of our dishes...CIAO! Jill owner

“Favorite place in Lee County!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

I've never written a review before, but thought this place deserved one. My girlfriend and I have eaten at Ciao many times and she will always tell me we are eating there for date night. Jill, the owner, is full of energy and brings a family atmosphere to dining out. You feel like a part of her family. The food...... absolutely delicious and to me, the price is well worth the dining experience and my pallet greatly thanks me for it! I have recommended this place to friends, family and complete strangers. Each have always agreed and thanked me... if you want a great meal and dining experience go to Ciao!
