the food here is always great and so is the service. The portions are very generous and they will pretty much make you any dish you ask for

I was there on a Tuesday night for my friends birthday. We were a group of 8 and it was perfect. We had the right amount of food, it was delicious, and we all had a great time. The server was wonderful - recommended the appropriate amount of food. It was nice that we didn't have to stick to the menu, we could make some changes. With 8 people, it's hard to find food that everyone likes (especially because of a few of us are picky and in different ways) so that made it easier. Would definitely go back!

Went to try something different and it was amazing...its not close to where I usually dine, but I will definitely be making the trip again! My husband and I tried the Sunday dinner and it was delicious...pasta was cooked perfectly, meatballs, sausage and short rib came in a small pot smothered with sauce and it was tasty and satisfying... Talia, the bartender was friendly and professional, made me the best Dirty Martini (which I'm very fussy about!) the other bartender Matt, was very accommodating also! what a great night!

Although we have lived in the area for a while, this was our first visit to Ciao Baby and we enjoyed it vey much. The Eggplant Lasagna was delicious, as well as the Lobster Ravioli, with plenty to take home and enjoy the next day. The servers were attentive, and the prices are reasonable. The bar area was a bit loud, but the noise level in the restaurant was less. We will definitely be back!

We had a large group and there was plenty of staff to handle our requests. The rice ball was awesome and huge - large enough for the whole table to have some. The waiter suggested we try the stuffed rigatoni with vodka sauce instead of the red sauce it typically comes with - that turned out to be a great recommendation. I'm very picky with calamari - I really enjoyed it here. I liked everything I tasted.

This was my first time here and I loved it. I definitely will be back. We ordered the giant rice ball and it was amazing. We then ordered a a family dish of penne ala vodka then a single of order of skirt steak and the Bolognese. The service was really good. They both explained how they did things ecause it was our first time there. The portions were huge. The only con I can think of was the mix is was loud but in loved the decor of the restaurant.

the food was excellent. The volume of noise was way too loud! The music was replayed a few times. Heard the same songs a couple of times! Wish the music selection was better. Very hard to hear people you are sitting with due to high ceilings and tables very close to one another. I was told the food was good but its very noisy and people were absolutely right! Food is excellent though.
Soften the music bro!

I've been here before and am always impressed by the food and service. However, I had made reservations for Valentine's Day ahead of time and still waited to be seated. When we were finally seated we were in the bar that was packed with people constantly bumping into the table or our chairs. It was extremely loud, to the point we could not hear one another speak. The waitress seemed overwhelmed by the amount of people, and could barely walk between tables. The food was great but everything else was terrible, so we tried to eat quickly and get out of there as quickly as possible. This is usually a great restaurant so I'm chalking it up to the holiday and will still be back -learned my lesson the hard way!

Made reservations to eat at Ciao Baby for 7pm. Arrived about 6:50 and waited until after 7:30 to be seated. I don't see the point of having a reservation system in place if they aren't going to be honored. This must be why the portions are huge at Ciao Baby; by the time you get your food after waiting for a table, you're starved!

Food was delicious, and the portions amazing. Standard cocktail (one liquor one mixer) tasted under-poured, though the wine glasses (and pouring) are on the large size.

Ciao Baby offers take-out, and a great deal during the early week. I would do that next time I was in the mood to eat here instead of actually sitting down at the restaurant.

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!

This was my 2nd visit to Ciao Baby.I had made reservations prior to my visit. When I arrived the hostess offered to seat us at a table in the bar area during happy hour.I expected to be seated in the dining rm. Rice ball & lobster mac n'cheese were superb. EXTREMELYgenerous portions. Noise level is extremely loud.Impossible to have a conversation or hear what the waiter is saying.Overall service was very poor this visit.Had to flag down the waiter to place my order,to see a desert menu, to get the check ,to have the check taken. Desert "to go" didn't come when I rec'd the check but was charged for it.This will be my last sit down dinner at Ciao Baby. I traveled quite a distance to have dinner there.In the future I would order"take out"ONLY.

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.

Although the food was not bad, it was not great. The eggplant parm had no taste to it, the fried calamari was too rubbery and the zeppoli's were not cooked all the way through. Expensive dinner for non-quality food. Disappointed.
