  • "We go to Ciao for birthdays and other special family events - maybe 8-10 times a year. Every time I've eaten there, the food and service has been consistently very good. Wonderful menu and the chef's specials are always, well, special!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "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.

  • "My husband opted for Ciao for his Birthday celebration again this year. He loves the atmosphere plus the fact that it is kid freindly. We had wonderful service, great food, and a wonderful time. Our server was very accommodating to our finicky 3 year old. We enjoy Ciao for romantic dinners, dinner with friends and dinner with the kids. It is difficult to find those qualities all in one place. Ciao does it WONDERFULLY!"

  • "With clinets in town, Caio has always been a great "go to" resturant due to convenience of loaction, consistent professional service and qualty of menu. Chef's performance is outstanding and delivers flavorful, well presented food, arriving hot to our table. Guest are always complementary and never have to worry about a bad experience. Exceptional, pleasant wait staff."

  • "We were there to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. We chose Ciao's due to the birthday discount offered. It must have been the right choice as she cannot stop commenting about it. The food was everything you expect of a restaurant in that price range, and the service was excellent as well. If there was any detraction, it was the noise level and the feeling of being in an overcrowded cafeteria. Being somewhat hearing impaired, the noisiness of the place made it difficult to take part in conversation. Other than that, it was a memorable dining experience."

  • "A great overall experience. Quality presentation and taste. Server knew her menu and checked back and checked back. This restaurant is using computer tablets for its menu - a real treat!"

  • "Ciao has been a long time favorite of ours so it was fun to introduce our friends to it! We had a delicious meal in a pleasant relaxed setting. The food was prepared as ordered and our wine selections were perfect! Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. Our friends are now hooked as well! My salmon was to die for!"

  • "Have been visiting this restaurant for many years. It is my personal favorite in NW Ohio as I enjoy authentic real food and this place has it in spades . Menu is extensive, with regular monthy specials but I tend to stay with the pasta dishes as I have not found any better in this area. Will keep going back as long as my favorite menu items part of the regular fare."

  • "First of all let say that the reservation request i put in,that included being seated by the fireplace ,was followed by Ciao to the T even tho it was Valentines Day. That alone was worth the price of admission. Our dinner was excellent as was the friendly and not overbearingly attentive staff. Eating at Ciao's is always a joy. Please do yourself a favor and check it out for yourself and MANGIA! Thats eat in Italian.."

  • "We had been so impressed with Ciao the first time that we returned for a special occasion. Once again, it was excellent. We both had steaks and each was tender, flavorful and cooked just right. Salads were delicious and mashed potatoes excellent. Service was also excellent - our waiter was attentive and made sure everything was right. The iPad menus are fun and convenient, showing pictures of the food when clicked. Pricing for the overall meal was reasonable for an upscale restaurant and we will definitely return. Only gripe was some of the prices. $3 for a coke and $4 for one anchovy on the salad. Usually when we order anchovies we get several. But the overall experience was excellent."

Not only were the servers friendly, but they truly went above and beyond by making my little one feel welcome. We had made reservations and the hostess provided a booth with a booster seat before we walked through the door. The food is always amazing and the staff always makes you feel special!"

  • "We typically go to Ciao for special occasions. I am used to calling a a reservation so I was surprised to see I could do one online through my phone. It was very convenient and quick. I had only caught it when I went to look ahead on the website at the menu. Delicious food as usual and our server was very polite. We always return."

  • "The food is excellent, and the servers are very attentive, promptly filling drinks and making you feel welcome. The ambiance is lovely: romantic, dim, warm, while the unique light fixtures focus light down on your plates. The service is a bit slow, but when you're dining with your date, that's what kind of what you want."
