Absolutely fantastic meal, couldn't say a bad thing about it. Excellent food, fantastic service, caring attentive owners, well behaved kid friendly. Absolutely 100% fat guy approved. You couldn't go wrong with this place, I'll be recommending it to all my friends who visit from out of town like me.

Good for the area. At least it isn't a chain. Parts of the meal were good while others were not. I did not feel that the quality of the meals we had made for a good value when the check arrived. I wouldn't go back.
This restaurant serves wine and beer, no full bar. The decor is very nice even though it is located in a strip mall. The server was professional, although he made us feel rushed. Advise getting reservations. This place is close to a convention center and gets very busy.

The order of garlic bread along with the calamari and its sauce were fabulous! The lamb cops were excellent! The grouper was cooked to perfection though I found the artichokes quite salty and would have preferred a different sauce. Still quite good. The creme brûlée would have been better had they lifted the torch sooner. Our service was outstanding and we had little noise however, we dined early and they were just beginning to get busy when we left. Will definitely go back!

Without a doubt probably one of the best Italian restaurants I've eaten in. The wait staff was extremely professional and helpful. We were there with 16 people and food was extremely fresh and Priced right for the area. Would definitely recommend this to anyone and would definitely go back

We won't be coming back here. The food was actually good, but it seemed to take forever for the food it to get to the table. Two appetizers came out before the other four by about 20 minutes. We had to shout for others to hear us who were just across the table.

My wife, teenage granddaughter and myself enjoyed an outstanding meal at Ciao Italia. We had three different pasta dishes each with a different sauces and protin that were outstanding. The pastas were freshly made and melted in your mouth. The dishes were very flavorful and
tasty. Our salads were very good with crisp fresh and well seasoned ingredients. Deserts and coffee were as good as the rest of the meal. Based on the meal, ambience and outstanding service it is easy to give this jewel of a restaurant a 5 star rating. Go and treat yourself to delicious authentic Italian meal.
