We had morning coffee here one morning and the lady was very good. We came back for dinner one evening and there were 3 couples eating, the service was poor, the food was ok. At the end we gave up on getting desert, coffee or any more to drink as the staff vanished, we ended up going up to collect... More

My wife and I had pizza and gelato here, the pizza was so good we went to dinner two nights in a row, the gelato is very good, the pizza is excellent and very affordable (by Trinidad and Tobago overly expensive standards) with a generous amount of topping, the place is small so you may have a little wait, they...

This ice cream parlour has a lovely selection of unusual flavours of ice cream and is well worth a visit.

Went to ciao's restaurant previously but was so full I didn't get to try the ice-cream! When my parents and brother came out I had to take them there. Really nice atmosphere and well priced. The ice cream is one of the best on the island. I had Nutella but there was all sorts of flavours from wine and raisin... More

The coffee is as it should be for an Italian speaking café, all tastes and sizes available. The ice cream is also recommendable. Beware: only cash is accepted. I would recommend the owner to accept credit cards, particularly considering cruise ships come and go with people only there for hours. There is also wifi available, which is very convenient.

Amazing food, service and ambience. Definitely recommend it! I'm italian and don't normally eat italian food out of italy, but the standard here is amazing. Owners and most staff are italian and service was AMAZING! Recommend you finish off with a gelato next door. DELICIOUS!

A great corner spot allows you to eat great ice cream and watch the world go by. Welcome air con inside but the veranda offers better views.

While wandering around Scarborough one of the friends noticed the coffee shop then I noticed the sign that said gelato. As gelato is one of my favorite foods I had no choice but to go in and order. I tried coconut and 1919 which was chocolate with rum in it. Both flavors were amazing you could really taste the rum... More

Ciao's thin-crust pizza is authentically Italian and loaded with fresh ingredients. Paired with a cold Carib beer, it's not only the best pizza in Tobago, it's among the best you will find anywhere.
