Ciao Bella (which translates to "hello, beautiful") is a reminder that Italian food can be much more than lasagna, ravioli and spaghetti. "The Mediterranean diet is one of the best in the world". "Just good, authentic food made with love and passion. Pair with a beautiful wine and it's wonderful".

The restaurant is very noisy. The music is loud and it made it hard to hold a conversation. The tables are crammed into the dining space. The young couple at the table next to us had the same problem with it being too noisy. The food is good, service is good. We might go back, but I doubt it.

Excellent service and food. The waiter was very patient with us. We had dinner with a couple we had not seen in 10 years. Very highly recommended

Had a wonderful birthday dinner here for my hubby and BFF. Great service, food and ambience. Our server was knowledgeable, efficient and personable as was the rest of the waitstaff. Had 2 daily specials and 2 menu items that are Ciao favorites-all were served very hot and very tasteful, portions adequate. Will definitely return and recommend to others!

I/we go there for their grilled salmon. Loved the special octopus appetizer for Valentine's Day, the salmon always good, and the pistachio gelato. Good cappucino. Sam was excellent. Happy that they had a bottle of Eruption available because so popular always LOW availability.

As usual, we had a great time and a great meal for Valentines Day. Calamari and salads were superb. Chilean Sea Bass was presented perfectly. We'll be back. Sam was great and knowledgeable on both food and wine.

The place was great. Loved the vibe. Very comfortable. The hostess could have been a little nicer. But we only had to deal with her for a few minutes. Our server was great!

Was there with wife and another couple. Our ordered appetizer came after our dinners were finished. They did remove the appetizer from the bill, but highly disappointing. Also, food was only fair. Definitely not worth the money.

As Always the food was very good, the ambience was nice and the monthly food coupon is great as well as the service. We'll be back within the next month or two.

It was a pleasant & vibrant dining experience. The ambience was definitely geared toward Valentine’s Day. Our reservations were for 6:15pm & our wait for a table was 30-35 minutes. A more engaged & customer friendly Hostess Staff would have added more to our dining experience. The several times I checked with the same Hostess during our wait, it was always the same response. “Several tables are now available & being cleared for the next round of diners”. Projecting a level of responsibIlity & accountability was limited on getting us seated within a reasonable amount of time. It was a rather depersonalized set of circumstances on that portion of our visit to your restaurant. Overall, it was a good dining experience!

Cramped table in the corner. Very noisy. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Pasta was very good, fish special was bland and the sauce was more like a broth. Dessert was delicious.
