Ciao is one of those restaurants where you walk in and immediately feel comfortable. Nice interior - lots of warmth, you're not sitting on top of other diners, and you don't feel rushed. We chose to sit upstairs on the outdoor balcony. Kind of odd how you get there, but it still works. Our waiter, Tim, was excellent. It's worth requesting him. His recommendation for wine, dinner, and dessert were spot on. My daughter's walleye was superb! Great flavor and texture. My pasta and dessert were simply delicious. Memorable.
I'm real picky about noise levels. I really don't want to hear what the other diners are saying. Can't say what the level was inside, but outside was very nice.
