The food was really good. My gf and I thoroughly enjoyed the dishes we had. We went early so we didn't need a reservation, but during the busy season or time of the day I could see how this place could fill up quick. Do yourself a favor and check this place out!

With the new bar and complete wine list this place, is in my opinion, the best eating establishment in Myrtle Beach. We started with the stuffed mushroom sitting in the most delicious, rich sauce, the stuffed pepper special, the fried calamari, and egg plant Rollitini. The bread is amazing dipped in the basil olive oil or smeared with butter. The... More

Contrary to other reviews we stopped during business hours and were immediately seated. Very good bread with very good olive oil for dipping. Chicken parmesan, lasagna and spaghetti with meat balls were good. Brie, our waitress was a treasure.

We had a great dinner at this cute place. Friendly service. Fine for kids, but I could also see it being nice for date night. Dress relatively casual. Easy parking. The food was great! We especially enjoyed the shrimp pasta special and the spinach walnut ravioli. Yum! Decor is simple, nothing fancy, but that's okay.

We visited here today for a late lunch. Had the mussels app. Yum. Chicken parm. Fabulous. Daughter liked spaghetti and meatballs. And husband had jumbo shrimp also great. The creme Brule cheesecake was awesome. And the cappuccino was fabulous.

A "local" highly recommended Ciao to us and we're glad she did. Both my wife and I agreed that our meal was the BEST we've eaten during our 2 month stay in Myrtle Beach. The food was true, authentic Italian and really delicious....just like my moma makes it! Lots of menu items to choose from. The restaurant itself was quaint... More

Small casual place with tasty meals. I have been several times as a local and always have a good meal. Broad menu, good variety. Specials are good. Tiny place where you should make reservations and come early.
