Ciao! 2 An Italian Cafe
Great for Mother's Day brunchI took my mom, along with my parents and my in-laws to Ciao2 for Mother's Day. It was my first experience with this restaurant, and everything was superb. The waiter was very attentive to our needs, and made sure that we never had to call him over with a question or to even refill our waters. Fantastic!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemThis little spot was perfect for an after graduation celebration. We had a group of 6, and were running about a half hr behind schedule. When I called to inform the restaurant, they were very understanding and accomodating. The waitress was friendly and pleasant. The food was great and the Tiramisu is to die for!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceThis restaurant is one of the best restaurants in the area. The food is top notch with generous portions and their famous tomato basil sauce really lives up to it's name. The sommelier is really helpful in picking out wines, so if you want wine with your dish and don't know what to get, ask to have a wine picked out. You'll be pleased you did.
The only downside to this restaurant is the price. Be prepared to pay at least $75 for a dinner for 2 (including a glass of wine for each. without wine, you might be able to keep it down near $50) and as much as over $100. We got the filet mignon steak with a portobello mushroom, chicken marsala, 2 glasses of wine, and one desert for $102. I think it was worth it for how good the food is. :4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent; amongFood was excellent; among the best Italian food I've had in the Pittsburgh area. Service was nice, and the server himself (also the owner) was engaging and treated us with great respect. The best way to describe it was that he treated us more like guests rather than customers. However, service was slow at times, which happens when he was the only one waiting the entire restaurant.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite place in the neighborhoMy favorite place in the neighborhood - family owned and run.
