We stumbled across Ciao while looking for something to eat. It was amazing. From the time we walked in the front door, throughout dinner, and when we left, we were treated like "regulars". We will make this on of our "go to" restaurants.

We found Ciao years ago and have told all of our friends about how great the food is. Everything we tried has been the best Italian food any other place in Myrtle Beach.

So, this was my 2nd visit to Ciaos and I am awed by what the Chef has accomplished. Italian cooking remade healthy! Wow. The sauce for the pasta is fresh and light. There is a “just picked” flavor of summer telling me high quality tomatoes...More

They cook everything to order, so they can accommodate gluten free on most items.

As long as you advise the waiter and request to speak with the chef to ensure he knows of your allergy, I am certain they will accommodate your need.

I would also suggest calling the restaurant. Going out for dinner on any major holiday is iffy unless you know their schedule and I don't. Have a happy holiday!
