    Highly recommend this restaurant. Has a very pleasant atmosphere. Had the sea bass over lobster risotto and it was absolutely delicious. Started with the roasted beet with poached pear salad, also very good. Other diners had halibut over quinoa with roasted asparagus and they said was excellent. Nice wine selection, good service and prices reasonable.

    As usual the food was fantastic. Scott always takes great care of us and remembers us from one time to the next. He is the best and makes every visit as perfect as it can be. We were in one of the private rooms this time and that made our experience even better.

    Electric guitar annoying. Most music sounded like a series of chords. Too loud for smaller dining area. Food generally good but the ceasar salad was disappointing. Had more of a vinegar taste as opposed to salty including the anchovies. Drinks from the bar were top notch!!

    Ciao is the " to go " place in this area for several reasons. The staff all work as a team to provide excellent service. The chef's use of fresh ingredients and creative recipes inspire gluttony. Last night the poached pear salad, lobster mac and salmon stuffed shells were excellent. The menu is varied and new dishes are added regularly and the bar/wine selection is awesome - no I'm not related or an owner - just a really satisfied customer!

    Always a fabulous place to dine. Food is consistently good, and the seafood dishes are always great! If you're starving, or just a little hungry, there are good choices available. The bar is good for drinks, but the seats are too low to really eat while seated there.

    Best dinner I may have ever had in Cape— and that includes Celebrations and 36 North. Have the Osso Buco if you get the chance. What a delicacy! Superb is not high enough praise. The “House” salad is mis- named. It is a special salad and would be called something else at any other fine dining establishment. . It is now my favorite, what great combination of flavors!

    Enjoyed the evening with my daughter and our friend during a SEMO visit. Fabulous ambiance, beautiful table settings, with a baby grand piano playing! One of the most beautifully quaint atmospheres I’ve had the pleasure of dining at. One of the hidden gems of Cape.
