family oriented Italian that
family oriented Italian that is a bang for your buck!
I would recommend the rice ball as well as the broccoli rabe pasta dish. Also the Gorgonzola mango salad was to die for.
Our waitress was loud and annoying. I also ordered the truffle mac and cheese. It was tasteless and a waste of my time. Go there are get what they do well. Their sides leave a lot to be desired.
I would go again, now that I know what to order.

This was not our first visit
This was not our first visit at Ciao Baby in Commack nor will it be the last. The food is always served hot and is consistently very good. The servers/hostess are very accommodating and pleasant.

If you're hungry, this is the place to head. The portions are enormous, the fresh pasta is incredibly delicious, and on a weeknight, there's no wait time, so this evening's visit was perfect.

Great place for excellent food
Great food as always... Love this place. Just a bit too loud if you are trying to have a romantic time!

Price fix for lunch is great
Price fix for lunch is great for large groups and the food is very good. Also, offers galsses of wine for very reasonable prices as well as bottles of wine. I would highly recoomend for the next office function where your looking to entertain a large group at a reasonable price in a very clean and neat restaurant. The service is also very good.

Go there hungry
Portion sizes are huge! The place was a little loud for my taste. But drinks and food are very good.

uphill climb that peaked well!
When we got there a baby shower was taking up most of the room. The host made a stupid comment "luckily we were able to save your reservation." There were 15 of us! I made the reservation on open table, & were coming from being at an outdoor event & thought -uh oh. After we sat down though, it got better. Our two servers were great. Randy led the team & he was a big help for a restaurant that served family style. The food was excellent & the signature dishes that Ciao Baby is known for were great. Sunday from 1-4, there are bottomless pitchers available of san gria, momosas and bloody marys. Instead, pass them over for regular cocktails. The kids and the adults were comfortable, well attended, and content. The food is great!

Can't beat Ladies Night on Thursday

Food is great , portions are huge but all the other reviewers are correct - it is too loud in the restaurant to carry on a conversation . You find yourself and everyone around you yelling just to converse with the person at the same table.

Love Caio Baby Restaurant. Has very lively, loud atmosphere. Lots of good all time favorite Italian songs playing. My husband and I have gone here several times. The pasta, etc. is excellent.
This time we ordered the rice balls for an appetizer. Very good. We both had their special...chicken stuffed with spinach and prosciutto. It was fair. A bit dry with little flavor. Also came with asparagus which was very tasty.
The service was excellent. They were very attentive.

We had a great night - went there with a group of girlfriends on 'Girls Night Out' and we were very, very pleased!!! Had a wonderful time all around & we can't wait to do it again!
Grazie Cia Baby!

Once again a great experience
From the moment you walk in you are treated ike an old friend. From our waitress to the food the experience couldn't have been more perfect. A great restaurant.

What a fun place!
Our first impression of Ciao, Baby was of overwhelming noise, so loud that we couldn't hear the great old-time tunes being accompanying the big screen t.v. s showing Sabrina (the old movie, not the teenage witch). Family-style meant giant portions just like Nonna used to serve. The food was good authentic southern Italian with a few innovations. Avoid the eggplant lasagna. They would have been better off with good old-fashioned parmigiana style.
Would definitely go back, especially for ladies night on Thursdays.

Family style dining done right
Large portions best ordered and shared among the table. Nice traditional choices. Serving staff is very attentive. Always a very good dining experience at Ciao Baby!

Ciao means Hello!
Came for a fun night out with friends and we weren't disappointed!! 5 friends with hefty appetites and a healthy thirst.
Took a little while for the drinks to come...the bar was buzzing.
Appetizers were good..had the mini calzones, meatballs with ricotta and a caprese salad, enough for all to share with leftovers!
Dinners wer so huge...ordered the short ribs for 2 with mushroom and white truffle risotto OMG...enough to feed 4! Also the scallops with butternut squash risotto, layered eggplant lasagna (which was a 6"x6" square on the plate topped with ricotta cheese and the tuna duo.
Many laughs and stories later we still had to have food wrapped up.
No room for dessert but espresso and cappuccino were enjoyed at the end of the meal.

Almost as good as Mom's
The food reminded me of how my old Italian mother would serve it- deliciously prepared and plenty of it! From the bread (comes with oil and grated cheese chunks to dip and eat), to the salads and huge entrees, everything was served by the friendly wait staff that took the time to explain each of the dishes and offer different items that were not on the menu. We were so full we could not eat the desserts which looked delicious. We had enough left to eat the next day and it was still delicious. We will be back again soon and this time will save room for dessert!
