“Great Italian Food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by our concierge at the Anderson Beach Club Resort. She described it as a little local place with about 20 tables with the biggest portions and best Italian Food. She was totally right!

“Best kept secret”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

While there are a number of "big name" Italian resturants in Myrtle Beach, the best kept secret is Ciao's. The intimate atmoshphere, the quality wine list, the personal service and exceptional food quality put it in a class by itself.,,,this is where the locals come..and they are on to something, If you come on a Friday or Saturday night, make reservations! From the outside the place looks like a hole in the wall in a strip shopping area. Ignore the looks! Inside it is classy! The breads are delicious, the salads fresh and crisp, and the lasagne (my favorite) is fantastic. My wife prefers the anti pasto salad as a main course and has enough to take some home for another meal. Prices are reasonable for the quality/quantity/dining experience although wine can run up the price quickly. The only caveats I'll offer are that the tables are close together and, with a small dining room, turnover is not always fast so even with reservations you nay have to wait a few minutes but the food is worth it.

“Delicious food, great wine, fabulous people!”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Ciao is a fabulous restaurant and a great place for a wonderful dining experience! They aim to please the customer and they always hit above the mark! Don't miss this place to dine in Myrtle Beach. I guarantee you will be delighted. The service is excellent (love all of you at Ciao), food amazing (don't miss dessert) and you will find some delightful wines. I lived in Myrtle Beach and this was a regular weekly dining experience for me. I miss being there and enjoying everything Ciao had to offer! Make a reservation as this place fills quickly because everyone knows how great it is!

“Cheers to the little-hole-in-the-wall!!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

A friend of ours gave us some recommendations for restaurants in Myrtle Beach and described Ciao! as a "little hole in the wall", it is, but that's all they need. Located in a nondescript strip mall you are likely to drive right by, inside however it is warm & welcoming. We went with another couple and everyone was happy with their food. My husband had the mussels and the leftover sauce was go good we took it home to put over pasta the next day. I had chicken Marsala and had to stop myself from overeating. Our waiter was attentive and helpful with menu choices. We will definitely be back.
