I think the waiter came by every 30 seconds from the time we sat down until we finally ordered. The food was not bad for Italian on the island, but we were served our salads, appetizers, and entrees in a total of 30 mins. The tables were extremely small, so my husband had to hold his salad in his hand... More

A very popular restaurant, based on our first visit. The food and service were both very good. Recommend the Fantastico Salad & Rigatoni Ciao.

My wife and I have been to Italy several times and love Italian food. At Ciao's we had food that could have been served in Italy, with pasta cooked just right. The servings are generous and the service informal and quick. If we go to Amelia Island again, we'll go to Ciao's again.

We, my husband and I, were warmly greeted by Ms. Kim as we walked in the door and given a very polite, smiling and attentive server named Joey. The creamy seafood lasagna with crabs, scallops etc. was a beautiful presentation and the taste was heavenly. We couldn't stop raving about it. The server was very attentive and charming throughout the... More

This was our second visit here and was just as memorable. The Fantastico salad was truely fantastic, the veal Parmesan was delicious and my husband's lasagna was exceptional. The wait staff is attentive but not annoying.

Based on several recommendations, we decided to go here for dinner but were less than impressed. The atmosphere was nice although somewhat noisy as it was a busy night even though it was off season. The service was confusing and our waiter confused us with other tables asking us if we were ready to order when we were not even... More

We all chose different salads, and everyone enjoyed them.. with some sides of calamari. Dinners ranged from a special of a Seafood Lasagna.. to Eggplant.. to Flatbreads.. no one... More
