  • "Ciao was just an "OK" place to eat. Wine list was simple, food prices were reasonable for the quality of food."

  • "The food was fine the service was terrible. The server seemed to never be around and less then familiar with the specials."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Continues to offer the area good Italian food and excellent service. The size and noise factors will be a bother to some people but in a traditional Italian meal environment you can expect those issues"

  • "We went to Ciao! for our 27th wedding anniversary because we had gift certificates given to us for Mainstreet Ventures. Even though being in a busy street location, they've managed to make it private enough and cozy. We wanted to eat on the cute terrace, but it seemed a bit too windy. Our server was very nice and brought us anything extra that we asked for...bread, cheese, etc. The only thing that I was a little disappointed with was the food that we had...I didn't think that it was exceptional...good, but not exceptional. I felt like the pasta that I had is something that I could make at home. I was impressed that their olive oil is infused with their own herbs that they grow outside...that's a nice touch!"

  • "They were very accommodating about our seafood allergy. And, when one of our party didn't care for her selection, they offered her another entree and were very kind about it. Good job, Brenda!"

  • "My wife and I had not been to Ciao in a while.I usually get the linguine and it was great as usual.My wife got salmon and we had the calamari as an appetizer.I love the food at this restaurant and have always been very satisfied with my experience at Ciao. I have recommended it to all my friends. I will say that it has a special spot in my heart because of the salad that is available. I don't think it is on the menu anymore , but if you ask for the Pommodoro salad they will make it for you. It's cherry tomatoes, onions, mozzarella, and parsley with a vinegar dressing. And it tastes exactly like the one my Mother made. She was full blooded Sicilian and she would make it in the summer. "

  • "Got in on Mother's Day for a great meal. Having been in Italy, all Italian food is compared and the meal was really quite close. Just disappointed that the salads were changed, but the salad I chose was very very good. "

  • "We always enjoy Cioa, but were disappointed when the only soup offered was Gazpacho. Ciao was on time with our reservation and honored our request for a booth. "

  • "Wanted a place close to our hotel for a little dinner and wine so here we are. Greeted warmly and taken straight to booth. So far so good. Tablet menus are gimmicky and a lot of extra work. My ipad and iPhone are a part of my life so it's not the techno just the concept. Service was stiff and slow-several times we could see our items waiting to be delivered while we idled. Beyond frustrating when a regular was seated behind us and had an army of servers in attendance and still we waited....Crostini appetizer was good but $9 for 3 tiny pieces-yikes! Walleye special was good but again portion didn't match price. Wouldn't be a repeat even if we lived closer"

  • "Thank you ciao for providing me with a wonderful birthday dinner. Amy our server was very knowledgable about chef's features for the evening and provided excellent service to our table. My dinner companions had never dined anywhere with the touch screen menus and enjoyed reading and seeing all of the details about each dish. The food was very good including our calamari and pasta dishes, but I did notice a hint of "fishy ness"smell about my salad with the creamy Parmesan dressing when it first arrived. Not sure what that could be from, but it tasted very good. Overall we enjoyed ourselves tremendously and look forward to our next visit. "

  • "Love Ciao!! It has long been a favorite with everyone in my family - from a quiet & leisurely dinner for two to a family birthday celebration. Have never had a bad meal there - everything is prepared to order and they are very willing to adapt to dietary preferences, excellent wine choices, delicious desserts. Service is always good but never overbearing, they're very happy to let us enjoy our meal without interruption."

  • "I made a reservation for 7pm around 12:30 on a Saturday, and was seated at a booth in the bar area! Not exactly where I wanted to sit and eat dinner with a 1st date and thought I would impress him with your restaurant! That was so disappointing,even when I made a reservation early in the day. Food is always good."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Everything was perfect. My wife took me there for my 60th birthday. From start to finish the food was 5 star and the staff very friendly. They made turning 60 a little easier to take. I will be back and also tell my friends."

  • "We went to dinner with friends who had never dined at ciao! before. Not only were we all very pleased with our food choices, but our server Bill was amazing. He gave a very descriptive explanation of the menu and gave some really awesome recomendations for entrees (the penne pollo is delicious as well as the lamb chops!!!) and wine. We will definitely be going back!"

  • "I have always loved Ciao's. never had a bad meal. take people who have never been there and they love it. You can't go wrong. It's just a wonderful place."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The food is absolutely delicious! The pasta portion sizes are generous however, the amount of protein added (in my case, grilled chicken) is very small, too small for the price charged. I received less than 1/4 cup of very thin sliced grilled chicken in my penne pollo. My husband chose the ravioli funghi alfredo with grilled chicken and received the about the same amount. If the protein was increased, this restaurant would receive 5 stars. The staff is very attentive and friendly."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We were at Ciao with friends who always choose Ciao to celebrate birthdays. As always the food (lamb chops, linguine with seafood, veal parmesan) was very good. The linguine tasted freshly made. The chops were cooked exactly as ordered and very flavorful. Salads were fresh and desserts delicious. We were not as satisfied with the service. We ordered a bottle of Prosecco which was served too warm and in regular white wine glasses rather than something more suitable for a sparkler. Looking back, we should have sent it back. Our waiter seemed a bit inexperienced. He didn't tell us about the special entree of the evening."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Our party of 4 ordered 4 different entrees: special of the night fish dish, salmon and spinach, salmon and ravioli, pork chops. Each dish was delicious. The service was perfectly timed (relaxed but not forgotten), friendly and helpful. I appreciated the wine list."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "From the lobby to the restaurant interior, this charming Italian ristorante is a great place to gather on a date or with a group of friends. The staff is quick, friendly and helpful. My husband and I dined on everything from appetizers to desserts, and all was pleasing to the palate. I had pasta with olive oil and garlic and a side of grilled shrimp. My husband had lamb chops. The side salads and bread were fresh and delicious. And the creme brulee was delightful. Side note: I LOVE how the menu is presented on a tablet. You can swipe through the menu selections. Clicking on a menu item brings up a picture of the dish with a detailed description. Very nice for those of us who can't speak Italian, as most of the dishes are named in Italian."

  • "You won't be disappointed! Great selection. Should always consider their evening fresh specials. Just tried Marlin and it was great."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We have many memories in this restaurant. It is probably one of the places that introduced us to food as more than just something to consume. Foodies we became. Food is to be enjoyed over a period of time with friendship and wine. Each part of the meal has flavors and textures and experience."

  • "Chef Wright provides a consistently great menu with inventive and perfectly prepared dishes. He salmon is always cooked just right (not over done) and the sides are always fresh and delicious. The Striped Marlin that I tried this time was wonderful and the asparagus that accompanied it was absolutely perfect."

  • "This was my first time to ciao and everything was perfect. The Asia go cheese and bread was great. My entrée was the spiedini misti which had chicken, Italian sausage, shrimp, potatoes, fresh vegetables and the best pork chop I have ever had anywhere. The canola for desert was wonderful. Can't wait to go back."

The place was almost packed, but the individual attention was fantastic! the food was HOT without being overdone, and presented beautifully.This place is not overly staffed with people standing around, they all do their job well. This is one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at."
