Picked up two pizzas (putanesca and funghi) for dinner. Simply put, Ciao has good pizzas that might as well could have been baked and served in Italy. Well worth a visit when you want the real deal, in contrast to the big chains.

We went for our Anniversary, and they never fail to disappoint. We have tried different things, I love it all. I love that Jill always recommends dessert for me (loved the pumpkin)! It has a family feel to it and look forward to the next visit. They made the night special, and we will definately return. Great Pizza, lobster ravioli,... More

We have been here many times and always loved the food. The last few times we got our favorite pizza to go instead of dining in. There has always been a problem getting a menu online and I never understood why. Now I do, they are so busy during the high season they don't really care about to go orders.... More

My husband & I have been here a few other times and the food was mediocre. This time, we ordered chicken Marsala over spaghetti as our entree. The Marsala sauce was slimy and tasted like it came out of a jar. The chicken was over cooked. We were hoping for a quiet dinner away from current political news. The owner,... More

We went as a couple without reservation and we're seated right away (there weren't many people there yet as we went early about 6ish, by the time we left the place was packed) the menu is not very large which is not a bad thing. Specials were interesting but we stuck with the regular menu. The place is rather dark... More

My wife Toni and me stopped for dinner yesterday (Friday Nov 11). The service was great, the ambience was great. Chatting with owner Jill was like talking to family. Jill shared with us about the seafood lasagna they served the day before. I just ordered their "regular" lasagna, which was awesome too, but seafood lasagna would have been sweet. No... More

My wife and I had the best dinner we've had in a long time at this restaurant tonight. Never have I had such an Italian dinner. Apps, desert, soup and entree were all equally amazing! Best meat balls I have tasted!!
