Excellent food and service. We had the fried ravioli and the caprese salad as appetizers. Delicious. The bread and dipping oil are very tasty. Lasagna is wonderful. The fettuccine and seafood special was outstanding. The only criticism I have is the size of the cannolies. They were so tiny and very over priced, but they were tasty.

Ciao's was wonderful, as always. Our server alerted us to the dwindling supply of their Osso Bucco special, and it did not disappoint. The seafood pasta special was also delicious! We've visited many times and have never had a bad meal at Ciao's. Thanks also to Susan for her great service!

The service is very good, but the entire place has a very tired atmosphere and the food never changes. This could be such a great place, and we keep trying it every few months, but the food and atmosphere are just subpar.

The scallops with white wine have not been anywhere near their earlier quality. I'm not in the habit of returning meals, but nearly did so my last visit. Other parts of the experience were better, especially the Spumoni 'bomb' for dessert.

As always, everything was top notch. Staff is totally knowledgeable of the standard entree's as well as the nightly specials. If you are lucky enough to hit a night when they offer the Ossa Bucco, it is to die for.....best I have ever eaten.
Amelio always nails it!

I took my sister (who was visiting me from L.A.) to Ciao and our dinners were excellent. Also the ambience was relaxed and friendly and the service people were great. One of the things we appreciated was there was none of that "music-so-loud-it-can-get-picked up by a Russian satellite." It was so nice to carry on a conversation without having to yell across the table to be heard!

It was a pleasant evening. The food was excellent and the service was great. It was nice to be able to communicate without talking loudly over music etc. I had the BeBe. The taste was wonderful, but I thought the sauce was a little heavy. My husband loved his special of the night. It was a shrimp dish with artichokes. We had to park 3 blocks away, but we would do it again.

Our food was excellent. I ordered the gnocchi with the four cheese sauce and it was one of the best dishes I have eaten. My server told us they were out but the chef made some more and I was so impressed and thankful. What an amazing meal!!!
Rooftop Terrace Overlooking the Park
This was our first visit and we sat on the rooftop terrace overlooking a lovely park in downtown Zionsville, with quintessential small town ambiance. Our server was excellent and friendly. Having moved from a foodie city, Chicago, the food was better than we had expected for Italian in Indiana. The waiter even brought us complimentary tiramasu for dessert since it was our anniversary dinner. We would definitely go back--and take friends-- for the ambiance, the food, and the service.
Mothers Day Brunch
Went there in Mothers Day for brunch. Very disappointed in the selection and even more the cost. We expect to spend money for a brunch like this but not for the minimal selection of food. Desserts were awful. Looked like store bough ten cookies and pies in tin pans. Will never go back for a brunch. Have been there for dinner and it's been very good. They should rethink brunch specials. When leaving we all said the same thing and that it was so empty for such a special day. No need for reservations for their Mothers Day Brunch.
wonderful service average food
My son and his husband ordered pasta dishes and thought they were fantastic. I had veal and thought it was good but too salty. I wish restaurants would realize that you can add salt but can't take it away. My wife ordered a fillet and it was overcooked. too their credit, they brought another and it was perfect. The service was wonderful. Our waiter was very personable and efficient and was as good as I've had anywhere. Its location in quaint old town Zionsville and tasteful decor added to an enjoyable evening.
This is not our first time there. Each time has been good, but this time it was truly excellent. We had cheerful, prompt service, and our meal was wonderful. We started with cocktails, and they brought fresh bread with well seasoned olive oil. The salads were fresh and tasty, then the entrees were fabulous. One was a filet covered with crab meat, and the other was a pasta special that was full of shrimp, scallops, dried tomatoes and artichokes. The desserts were equally great- a chocolate mousse cake and a white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake. The wine list was varied and allowed a good selection to be purchased by the glass.
Fair food, dissapointing experience...
Greeted by a rude hostess. It was Valentine's Day, so menu was limited. Restaurant was loud. My husband and I ordered a glass of wine and we noticed it was less than half full; so I mentioned to my waiter who was very friendly. He explained that my glass was bigger than others so that was why it appeared less full. Yet I saw two glasses the same size as mine at the bar waiting to be delivered to the customers and they had more wine than ours. My husband, who is not concerned about these things was in fact who noticed it! Yet the waiter took my glass to he bartender who had an absolute fit about it! He was yelling and then aggressively got a bottle of wine and filled my glass up a bit more. Our table was close enough to the bar for us to hear the spectacle. I was shocked and looked at him and from the bar he cynically said to me, " Happy Valentine's Day!" with a thumbs up. Then I noticed he was vaping in between making drinks. Not at all what I was expecting from a restaurant this caliber. Not sure I would consider going back. The food was decent, but nothing spectacular.
