Jill, the owner, is wonderful. Jill's risotto is fantastic. If the risotto does not come with the dish, we order it on the side. The Veal is so tender, the lasagna is outstanding. We have tried everything on the menu. Tonight we ordered pizzas. Everything taste wonderful and you feel like you are eating with family. Travis is usually our... More

We were a party of 4 that visited yesterday. A entree dish thst was listed as one of the day's specials was "sold out", even though we arrived when the restaurant first opened that day. Two people in our party ordered linguini with clam sauce-extra spicy. Their dishes arrived bland with no evidence of spice or flavor, whatsoever. When the... More

Lmelloteta, I'm so sorry that your Linguini with clams was received unspiced . I was informed by Alex of this error, and explained to him that the spice we add is crushed red pepper, which is also on each table. This way a customer can add this to their dishes, for their personal degree of spiciness. We find that customers... More

We have been frequenting this Reasturant since it opened. Always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We are known to the owner, Jill, and her husband who is from the same area in NJ. She is from Michigan. Knowing that we go there my daughter gave us a $50 gift card for this spot. Our children often give us this type... More

Bill, It's truly unfortunate that when speaking to your wife...this is not how the conversation transpired. So pls since you were not involved in the conversation, only in the background let me share with you what I informed your wife. She said to me, "we received a gift card from our daughter, and just found it". She said she didn't... More

Oh my goodness! This was without a doubt the best meal I have had since I arrived here in late December. (And I have eaten out nearly every day!) My party had the prime rib, duck, and lasagna.

I called Jill, the owner, and asked her to make a special 65th anniversary dinner for my future in-laws. She did an AMAZING job! They were wined and dined and felt like they were royalty.

Ciao has set some pretty high standards in the cape, now they need to make sure that they meet them day in and day out. This was one of our many visits - and while it was good, it was not the great that we come to expect at Ciao. Jill wasn't there this night, maybe that was it, but... More

Ciao is a welcome respite from pedestrian Italian food. The pizzas are great, excellent ingredients cooked to hot, gooey, chewy perfection. The other selections are also very tasty and authentic. Service is also friendly and genuine. A pleasant break from the grind!

If you love the Italian style of cooking, you'll love this quaint little place. I've never had a bad meal. Period. Need I say more. They do need a seating upgrade though. Your a little too close to fellow diners in some places, and it's very hard for some people to get out of the booths and wall seats
