“Average Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

While the service and atmosphere was good, the quality of my entre was a little disappointing. The person I was with reported that their meal was excellent. I would probably return but try a different entre.

“Quirky italian place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

Sinatra music, great waiters, and the kids loved the pizza (hard to get them to admit something is good)! We almost went to the larger, more expensive Ameilia's down the street, but glad we changed our mind. It's a pretty small place so maybe not for larger groups.

“Not bad, but not great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

If you are on Balboa Island and looking for some Italian food, this will work. If you are looking for great Italian food while on the Island, you just might be a bit disappointed. The prices are a bit steep for the quality and service. There is little on the menu to get excited about and the pasta tends to be a bit overcooked. The servers tend to resemble college kids just looking to make a few dollars on the side, but not particularly interested in your lasting impressions of the restaurant. It will do in a pinch, but I would not recommend you go out of your way to find Ciao.
