A great Friday night out. Our server, Kylee, was friendly and professional. The food was good and the atmosphere was comfortable.

Magnifica!! What an extraordinary way to spend a beautiful summer evening - nothing, and I mean nothing, could be more enjoyable than the extraordinary meal we enjoyed. If you love brussel sprouts (and even if you don't - maybe especially if you don't) then cavoletti di bruxelles is most definitely a must-try dish. An appetizer extraordinaire. And that is not the only must have: the sachetti con porcini is unique, fabulously delicious and so well presented. Bill, our server, was so knowledgeable, and willing to share his personal favorites (which we requested), that the experience was even more charming. And Brenda? Could not be more gracious, welcoming and, it must be said, concerned that every detail be correct. Did I forget the quattro formagi? Then shame on me, because without any difficulty, we were able to change to a trio formagi, and it was perfection - we'll be enjoying that for another meal, as it is generous in ingredients, and quite something to look forward to. Just as we look forward to more incredible dining at Ciao, premier Italian, consistently wonderful in all regards. Thanks, Brenda, and thanks to all at Ciao!!

We had a reservation for a birthday dinner, we waited two hours for our main entrees. While the food was great and the birthday discount was nice the wait was egregious. They forgot about our app and drinks came slow.

Have ate here at least once a month for a few years now. Last visit was disappointed in the food and service, seems like there are problems, will give them another chance but only one more chance-with this pricing structure you expect much more on a regular basis.

We have been dining here for 24 years. The food has always been exceptional the service has also typically been exceptional. This evening we were there celebrating my husband‘s birthday. We ordered our dinner and appetizers, it is a meal we typically always eat. Tonight the quality of the food didn’t seem to be as good as it normally is,And although the restaurant was not very busy, the service was also less than expected. The server did not come back very often to fill water glasses or check on our meal or see if we needed anything else.

It was extremely cold in there. It’s extremely dark so I requested a window seat and I’m glad I did. I could only find one thing on the menu that I wanted, and perhaps I’m just picky when it comes to this restaurant.

Ciao is remarkably pricey, given the context of Italian in Toledo. So, is it worth it? Well, my wife ordered the special chicken dish, and while the chicken was soft, it had a hint of artificiality to it, and the mashed potatoes were clearly instant!! Quite disappointing.

There were three in our party. The entrees salmon on spinach, and chicken with pasta were very good.

I had the brussels sprouts entree salad which was a disappointment. Since there was a roasted vegetable entree salad also on the menu, I wrongfully assumed the sprouts would be cooked in some manner, but they were not-- totally raw. My fault, I did not ask if they were cooked. Since they were described as shaved, I took that literally. I was wrong once again, as they were sliced, not shaved. A large plate of sliced, raw brussels sprouts is quite a challenge to eat. I could not manage this.

Again referencing the roasted vegetable salad, I suggest roasting the sliced sprouts in olive oil with plenty of garlic, add more pine nuts and avocado, and add roasted red pepper and grated cheese.

We had a delicious dinner. The only upsetting thing was when I booked the reservation I chose outdoor seating and we got to the restaurant we were told they could not guaranteed us seating outside even though is was booked that way. Thankfully after waiting in the bar for a while we were able to be seated outside. However the reservation should tell you outdoor seating is not guaranteed!!

Service was very good however was disappointed in the food. We have not been there for several years so we were excited to try it. Halibut was over cooked and the olive oil pasta was tasteless. Salad, bread and appetizers were delicious though. We may or may not be back.

No server to table- asked someone if he was our waiter- he went to get her - about 7-10 min wait.
All attentive then.
When leaving- manager and waitress were standing/ talking to each other at check in area- totally ignoring us leaving.

We love Ciao but not so much the changes. The bread basket was different and we did not enjoy the bread. My favorite chicken dish was no longer on the menu. Dessert was ok. My husbands dinner was wonderful though. Our server Amy was great!!

Food was delicious as always! Service was awful. We had two tables of 10 people each next to us. Our two waiters were more interested in waiting on them than us. Our food took forever and then the two
waiters never came back to check on us or ask if we needed anything. There seemed to be a huge issue with the checks for the two tables and our waiters as well as the manager were quite wrapped up
in that situation. Finally our waiter showed up and we expressed our concerns. He sent the manager over. He was not a good manager. I am used to dealing with Brenda when we eat there. She was not there. The manager was giving a list of excuses regarding the large group. That had nothing to do with us. As I stated, the food was great. Always is. They need to get rid of that manager. He was awful!!!
