We had the evening special and it was very tasty and fresh with homemade noodles and beef.
Overpriced but typical of the area. Very convenient to the hotel, it is across the street in a small mall. Service by our waiter Gino was outstanding. A nice little restaurant.

After several days of Disney food, we needed something more civilized, and Ciao Italia fit the bill. The strip mall setting wasn't encouraging, but the interior was lovely and the staff was welcoming. Portions were sufficient but not large. The menu had a nice assortment, from veal to wild boar. If you want to eat with adults and actually hear the dinner conversation, this is a good choice.

Thank Cziel

We had a nice dinner, but my Veal Parmesan was mostly breading, my wife's Lobster Ravioli was very good.
The servers were very pleasant and attentive and nice.
This is a very average Italian restaurant at best and they do over charge like adding $4. to change the regular sauce for meat sauce. I wanted it so I paid for it, but that was outrageous.
All in all we were disappointed.

The food was amazing the service was even better. We were seated immediately. Shawn was our server, he was the most knowledgeable and friendliest server that we ever had. He explained all the specials 1 by 1 for us. I ordered the veal chop special and my wife had the fish special. Shawn recommended a very nice bottle of Chianti after he asked for our price range and our taste for wine. we were both very happy with our dinning experience. we will visit Ciao Italia next year and we hope to see shawn there. If you are planning to visit this restaurant you should definitely ask for Shawn and always try to order from their specials.

This is a wonderful delicious Italian restaurant near Sea World, discovery cove, Aquatica, that is definitely worth visiting for dinner during your trip to Orlando (Disney). Great food, great service, great kids menu, delicious quality Italian food.
