Ciao Italian Restaurant
Great atmosphere and the service was outstanding. The food was delicious. I plan to be a regular.
Good food and nice cozy ambiance. Pretty busy w/ long wait times for service during Marathon weekend.
Loved the restaurant! Wish we lived in the area to return multiple times!
The food was excellent and our server Lee was attentive and helpful. We will eat there again in the future.
The food was fresh and tasty. The wide selection of specials gave us great options. The setting was intimate and quite enough that you could have conversation.
Wonderful food as usual! Great lunch with friends.
Only reason I rate the ambiance a 4 is because it’s not super swanky. It’s more Trattoria (small and quaint and not fancy). They put more effort into their food (and I think wine) which is more important if you ask me. VERY inviting/warm people/service. If you can’t find something that suits your tastes and you that you really like, then it might be you. Then again, f it really is your food, SPEAK to them, because they will make it better/right (note above service comment).
Service is always great and the food is very good and reasonably priced. Deserts were all excellent! One of our favorites for years.
Great will go again.
Great location, away from the terrible parking around the River Market. Great food, the service was a bit slow, but we had a group of 8. Super polite staff. This is a favorite for our holiday luncheon.
Probably the best Italian in Little Rock!
Great time. It was a last minute booking and selection; couldn’t have been more happier with it.
Food and drink were excellent. but they only had one waitstaff which meant slow service overall.
Great date night venue with your significant other. Old country cozy, romantic with excellent service and food. From the time you enter Ciao and greeted by Becky, the owner, and served by Sarah, your waitress, you will leave feeling like family. One of Little Rock's hidden gems.
Great place for a quiet awesome meal....the service is always great and the food is very good.
Lori took great care of us. We weren't rushed and her recommendations were spot on. Her timing was perfect!
The food and service were both remarkable. If your looking for authentic Italian food with great service, this is the place.
We reserved a table for 6 people for a bridal dinner. The food was amazing and had several menu options. Cutest hole in the wall restaurant but do not let the outside deceive you. The inside is cute with Italian feel and lovely art by local artists for purchase.
The only thing I would add is the light music because it was so silent that you can hear everyone's conversion.
I gave an overall 4 instead or 5 because the server wasnt as knowledgeable in wine & smaller plates did not accommodate the appetizers & bread. It was a little awkward when server put bread rolls on our plate after appetizers came out. My recommendation is invest in more bread baskets for larger parties to place on the table.
I would recommend this place to anyone who truly loves Italian food and looking for a romantic date. The price point was good as well. <3
service was very slow. food was amazing. fresh ingredients. claustrophobic.
waited for food over an hour, needed to get to a show, so was a little rusted
Awesome.....very quiet and the perfect atmosphere for business. Excellent service and food.
Worst Italian food I have had in a long time. Service was also terrible. It took over an hour to get our food. The cream of mushroom soup was made with canned mushrooms. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Took my husband for his birthday. Food was delicious! So yummy!!!
Service was prompt. Waiter was kind.
He was very dirty and a bit smelly. Needed a shower. We still left a good tip.
Unfortunately, they didn't read the reservation request. I shared it was his 49th bday so they could come sing . They didn't help me celebrate. This was a bit disappointing.
Also, the phone rang like crazy for Togo orders. It was do very loud!!! Very annoying and took away from ambiance. It literally rang non-stop.
We will return because food was so good.
Salmon was amazing!!!
I just see a few areas of needed improvement.
Next time it will be ToGo!
Ciaos has been a favorite of mine for years! It is usually on the quiet side, but our visit this past Saturday night was a little lively! Which was nice since we were celebrating my son and daughter in-law's birthdays! Just so happened that the Sweet Adelines were in town for a convention and some of them happened to be in the restaurant. One group sang Happy Birthday to our table, while another group sang to another table. What fun it was! The food was fabulous, I have never had a bad meal. I recommend The Marco Antonio which is chicken parmesan with eggplant parmesan on top. we had a wonderful waiter and all the staff are very friendly!
It was a wonderful evening with good food, good wine and the service was outstanding!! Highly recommend!
Ciao's has great Italian food! We love the atmosphere!
Twice we have been to Ciao and both times was an excellent experience! The waiter was exceptional with humor and service! The food was awesome and we highly recommend it!
Ciao is one of our go to places to eat a great meal with the family. Becky and her crew always have their "A" game with the service and food.
Always great food, good wine and exquisite service. Consistent quality and service over the years at a good value!
Caio’s continues to exceed all expectations when it come to a quiet, romantic evening out. The food is delicious and is well presented. The wait staff always provides exceptional, friendly and personable service. Nice selection of wines are available at reasonable prices. Caio’s is our favorite go to place for special occasions; make it yours!
Menu items we selected did not disappoint, great flavor and just the right amount of heat.
The service was great. We really enjoyed our dinner
Have eaten here twice now w/friends - it is one of our friends favorite recipes, and where we all go to celebrate certain important events! They like it better than we do, but it is ok food - I've had better Italian but, again, we really aren't going there for a great meal!
The atmosphere was extremely poor with multiple flys surrounding our table the entire meal and absolutely dead silence with no ambiance at all.
My girlfriends Chicken Marsala was a breaded chicken fried steak with some sort of soy tasting sauce. It was so bad we had to return it for another meal.
The fettuccini Alfredo I had was so watery with no flavor and the smallest pieces of chicken I have ever seen in a meal! Even my girlfriends replacement fettuccini Alfredo was just as bad.
Even with the horrible experience the management didn’t nothing at all to better the situation. We were charge full price and even charged for the four hard rolls.
By far the worst experience ever and it’s a shame being our first time in Little Rock.
You will be happy with anything on the menu. It is all incredible.
the best part of my meal was the cup of mushroom bisque soup. My main course was the veal tortellini. It was cold and very dry and had some linguini mixed in, which I had no idea where it came from. I also ordered coffee and it was served to me cold. The waiter gave excises for everything that was wrong with the meal. He was less than functional and not very accommodating. We were heading for a play at the Robinson so I didn't have time to make management aware, that is if they were even on site. WILL NOT RETURN!
The service was amazing and the food was phenomenal, we’ll definitely be back on our next trip to Little Rock.
Service was very slow. Restaurant was out of veal which is their signature meal. Seemed odd. Food was okay.
Excellent food. The most real Italian I've ever eaten in the US.
I was very disappointed overall with this restruant. The positive things...service was excellent. The culture of the restruant was above average. The food.. not so much. We had a wide survey of the menu and shared the food amongst each other for a party of seven. The food was average. It was better than Olive Garden or similar options, but it was not worth nearly double the cost of entrees. I’m glad we tried it but we won’t be back. This place has such potential, but the food needs a revamp.
