For those of us with memories of the local Italian restaurants on Taylor Street in Chicago or one of many in Manhattan or Brooklyn, Ciao might not quite live up. But, those places from the past were probably not as good as our memories have created. So, Ciao is our own local Italian restaurant right here on Longboat Key, doing its best to match those distant memories. Properly cooked pastas do exist here and they know the meaning of "al dente". Pizzas are not quite as thin crust as this reviewer likes, but are as good as any in the area. Ambiance is quaint and service very friendly. So, for that quiet "couple's night out" or going to a neighborhood spot with friends, Ciao will do quite nicely and your wallet will shout for joy.
