After hearing fabulous reviews from my friend Heather, she took me for dinner to Ciao Italia last night, where we both had the festive menu. The food was amazing and extremely good value, the staff were very attentive and friendly and the overall experience was first class. Having visited all the Italians in Dunfermline more than once, I have to... More

Had lunch with the family and we were all very happy with the food, the service and overall experience. Party included daughters and mother in law. Overall it's not the best Italian meal I've ever had, but then it's also not anywhere near the most expensive Italian meal I've ever had. It's a very nice place to spend time, the... More

Had a really nice meal here and took advantage of their cracking 3 courses and a glass of wine for £17. Had the salmon which was lovely. Parking round the back also handy. Would recommend and I will go back

Meal deal until end of November 2016 with full meal options. I'd happy pay full price! Can't find any fault - quality food, good choices, great service and even the house wine (included!) was very good. Top 5 restaurant in Dunfermline.

Have been going here regularly since it opened. However latest visit was disappointing. Service was poor, lack of waiters & attention. The standard of food, which in the past has been excellent, seems to have fallen. Change of chef?

Cane here for my birthday meal with family midweek. Good selection of food - something for everyone with a few different combinations and tastes that I haven't seen elsewhere. Portion sizes are good and everyone cleared their plate. Service was prompt, happy and not overbearing. We had a lovely time and hope to be back soon.

I see mixed reviews about Ciao Italia and it is fair to say over the years some visits have been better than others. Having said all of this we went last night and it was excellent. The pizza is always excellent - in fact better than most we ate when we visited Venice recently. Good choice of foods - pasta,... More

We used to go to Ciao Italia quite regularly and always found the food excellent and the welcome very warm. We always felt our custom was valued. Recently we haven't been going so much as the food is definitely not as good as it used to be and after our experience this weekend we definitely won't be rushing back. Firstly... More
