“My favirite spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

This place has the best food! I highly recommend the salads (all of them), the pizza (arugula & goat cheese) and the eggplant! Charming ambience and great service! Look forward to coming back! :-)

“Really good pizza and steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

A great experience here! We had the tenderloin, various pizzas, lasagna, the beet salad, and desserts.....all were excellent. There was a Mexican piano lounge guy with backing tracks....very entertaining. Give it a try!

“Great pizza and appetizers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We are fans of Riviera Grill next door, so were happy to learn about Ciao opening. We went there last week and it did not disappoint. We liked all the appetizers we tried (especially the bruschetta - fresh tomatoes must be easy to find there), and the pizzas were interesting and very tasty. The nutella pizza crust dessert and tiramisu were both really great. They have lots of wines but we were all in a beer mood so I can't comment on the wine. I agree that the slate tiles that they serve the food on is not functional - too big, heavy, and tough to pick up. But that didn't bother us at all. We will add this to our rotation of restaurants for when we visit.
