“Always excellent”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Ciao is the restaurant my husband and I go to for a special meal. Everything I have tried has been delightful but I am partial to the pesto sauce with linguini and for dessert the cannoli is amazing. The chef is very accommodating with substitutions as I don't like Gorgonzola (the cheese on the house salad) they are always happy to use fresh Parmesan instead. The staff is always very knowledgable and the digital menus are unique. Probably the only downside to the digital menu is that they make ordering somewhat more challenging because you are tempted to order pretty much everything because it all looks good. Some items are pricey but they offer happy hour specials in the bar and you do get a free meal with dessert on your birthday.

“Our first time here won't be our last.”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

From the lobby to the restaurant interior, this charming Italian ristorante is a great place to gather on a date or with a group of friends. The staff is quick, friendly and helpful. My husband and I dined on everything from appetizers to desserts, and everything was pleasing to the palate. I had the pasta with olive oil and garlic and a side of grilled shrimp. My husband had lamb chops. The side salads were fresh and delicious. The bread was fresh, as well. And the creme brulee was delightful.

Side note: I LOVE how the menu is presented on a tablet. You can swipe through the menu selections, and clicking on a menu item brings up a picture of the dish with a detailed description. Very nice for those of us who can't speak Italian, as most of the dishes are named in Italian.

“Consistantly excellent food and service!”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We dine at Ciao on average of twice a month and always feel welcome in the warm atmosphere, which is cozy in the winter and lovely in the summer, especially on the patio. The staff is friendly and efficient, and the food, from pasta to fish is always excellent. Substitutions are cheerfully accomodated.
