I was plowing through the Village with my 16yo daughter on a birthday shopping swing and we stumbled into the door of Ciao. It was a great find. Good solid food, fresh ingrediants, well prepared. Waiter was very friendly and the atmosphere was good...nice inside, and the people watching out the window just what NY delivers the best. We had omelettes and salads and it was right on target. This isn't fine dining but a fun place to drift into if you are in the neighborhood. It didn't disappoint.
