Diner Reviews
  • "Food was amazing!!! Ordered a Rice ball appetizer, the Chicken Scarpariello for 2 and the eggplant lasagna. We were 4 adults and had enough food to feed at least 7 or 8 people. The ice cream volcano for dessert was truly incredible!!! The wait staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Can't wait to go back with friends."

  • "Got to the restaurant and didn't have our reservation. I even called the restaurant at 12:30 that day and they confirmed the reservation. Had to wait an hour to be seated. I have the confirmation from open table. Was disappointed that we had to wait. Could have bought us a drink at the bar while we waited for the hour. There were 8 people in our party. I made the reservation and was very embarrassed"

  • "I made a reservation for a particular booth and noted so in the comments section in the reservation, as one of my party has hearing issues. In addition I called the restuarant and I was told they would mark the table reserved. When I arrived I had to wait, the hostess attempted to seat my party at a table in the loudess section, when I reminded the hostess of my reservation notes she read the reservation and stated that there were no notes. When I stated I also called she got someone else who found the comments in the reservation. The hostess said that we could have another booth and proceeded to sit us in one when the manager came and arrogantly stated that the three booths that were available were reserved for VIPs."

  • "What can I say That I haven't said already about this place. I had a party of four which started at the bar for a few cocktails then off to a table for a feast. One of my favorite Italian restaurants."

  • "The only negative was when making the reservation through Open Table, I was asked if this was my first visit to this restaurant? I answered yes, and when we were taken to our table it was right in front of the kitchen, about 6 feet away. When we politely expressed our dismay with the table location it was quickly rectified. We (my wife and two daughters) were pleasantly surprised with the service and the food. Usually when restaurants offer such an abundance of food...it tends to be somewhat bland and tasteless. This was not the case with Ciao Baby. Though we over ordered not realizing how big the portions actually were, we had no complaints with the quality of the food. It was quite tasteful and we found service very good."

  • "When I went in on Valentine's Day night with my reservation, they told me that their online reservations had been disabled for over a week. Really? Then pull down the website! My party and several other parties had to have an extensive wait time tacked on to our reservations. It was over an hour and a half past my original reservation time before I was seated. It was a horrible night for this to happen."

  • "The service was fair, it was valentines day so it was busy. Food was not very good but very big portions, except I didn't want to eat my leftovers the following days."

  • "We had our reservation at caio baby for 9:45pm on valentines day, when I arrived the restaurant was packed which I knew would be expected since it was valentines say. I gave my name to the hostess and was told they were behind and it would be a 25 min wait, I said no problem so my wife and I waited by bar. The name Mike was constantly called so we had to go up and check at least 3-4x to see if it was for us. FINALLY at approx 10:50pm well after the 25 min wait time we were given we got our seats. Once at the table we had two servers, the young lady Ava was very nice however her partner who never introduced himself and also didn't write down any of our order which cost us a salad that was given to us."

  • "Excellent food, generous portions and outstanding service brings us back to Ciao Baby again and again. Whether a large group or a simple party of 2 we always leave pleased, full and with leftovers to take home."

  • "Usually I don't have to make a reservation but on a Friday night for my boyfriend's birthday I wanted to make sure we got a table. Not really sure why I just didn't call up and reserve, but decided to use Open Table this time and for some reason there was no reservation under my name. I don't know if that's fault on Open Table or the restaurant but luckily they were able to seat us anyway."

  • "Our group of 10 had a central table, which despite its location, was not noisy. The waitstaff was attentive, but I do wonder why they do that "not writing it down" thing with your order, when they can't remember it when they get to the kitchen. This happened twice (on my previous visit, too). Food is well prepared, and on Thursdays is a very good value, too."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "The service was attentive. Food was was cooked well and the portions were quite large and were enough to take home for a second meal. This place is known for its large portions. There are options for smaller plates available as well. This is a fun place and is good for parties but not quiet if you are looking for a romantic experience."

  • "Had a great time, food was excellent and the service was top notch. Kid friendly, but I'm talking about tweens and above. It's not a Friendly's. For people and kids who can appreciate a good meal."

  • "Just left Ciao Baby Massapequa and couldnt be more thrilled. The service was impeccable. Henry and Steve did everything necessary for my fiance and I to have a great time. The food was great. We had a Riceball for an appetizer. That thong is huge! Next up was the Skirt Steak and Sea Bass. Yum to both. We almost didn't get dessert because we were too full, but we couldn't pass up the icebox cake. We both can't wait to return with friends!"

  • "My Wife and I went on Black Friday after an Islanders game and it was the most amazing food and atmopshere we have been around. The food portions were huge and the wait staff was more than helpful with our orders and drinks. It was a bit loud, but nothing too overbearing. I would love to go back again the next time we are in Long Island."

  • "Calamari appetizer was pretty good. Ordered Pasta with Shrimp. Pasta was overcooked. Shrimp were tiny. Chicken Scarpiello was fair. Of course portions were massive. I would not go back."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "with all the hype this place gets, i was expecting more. the chilean sea bass was overcooked and my linguine w/cherry peppers and baby shrimp was only "good" because the pasta was homemade. items are way overpriced because they think it's family-style. i assure you, the two entrees listed above were not family-style portions - although they would be considered somewhat "generous." still, nothing worth the price we paid. i won't be back. it's too bad. seems like a big crowd goes here."

  • "Too loud and everyone was sitting on top of one another. I went out to relax not to stress. We were just 2 people. The waiter literally has to rub your shoulder with his when he tells you about the specials and it's hard to hear him. If you go with 4 or more people you will probably be seated at the tables and that is not as bad."

  • "Not just your average Italian Restaurant. Food is always fresh and delicious! Either single portions or family style they will cook what you want even if it is not on the menu. Selections are not typical but almost indescribable. Place is clean and service is top notch. Even the desserts are incredible. Worth driving an hour for!"

  • "Average to below average food at best. Skirt steak is good, pastas are decent, meatballs are overrated."
