The food was very good and the service was excellent
We were in Orlando with family and found this place highly recommended on Open Table. We had a great dinner and everyone (kids and adults) left having a great experience. We talked about it all the way home. Food was great and the homemade pasta was outstanding. Would highly recommend.
Never was offered refill on drinks or was told the servers name. Food was ok. Would not recommend I. Such an amazing city of food
Outstanding veal piccatta and shrimp scampi, and don't miss the cheesecake for dessert!
Great experience! We had a party of 14 which is always challenging, but the staff was exceptional and the food was fantastic.
We always try to get over there when we are in town. Excellent food, starting to get popular an more crowded.
When I arrived it was not what I expected, but was I surprised when I went in and was greeted. Extremely pleasant and professional. Was seated immediately and immediately greeted by my waiter. Service with spot on, not to much or to little even with a packed restaurant.
Our meals where very large portioned and excellent. I had the short ribs and was impressed. It was such a large portion me a 240 pounder couldn't finish it. I will visit again and you should too.
Oh, great wines also.
this place is fantastic!
Very good food and good prices! Nice wine list too! Only issue was that I had requested quiet table which they mentioned when we arrived ... then seated. Table of six right next to us halfway through our dinner!?! Understand if crowded but there were plenty of other empty tables available. Everything else was great!
The lamb chops tasted very gamey and were Luke warm to slightly cold in the center.
Food was great and came out very quickly!! Amazing staff too
Wonderful food, charming staff and atmosphere.
The best most attentive service combined with absolutely delicious food. Don’t let strip mall location fool you!
Will return when in the area again
Service was a bit slow especially initially but got better throughout the evening. The salmon ala vodka was very good while the linguine and clams in a white wine and garlic base was very tasty. The tagliatelle with bolognese was just so so as the meat sauce was on the sweet side. Overall an average meal priced reasonably and with good size portions but nothing memorable. The location in a strip mall was not all that inviting .
Great food. Our group enjoyed it and Fabian was fantastic. We’ll be back next time we are in town.
The food was very fresh and of good quality. We did a family style meal. The burrata with prosciutto and bread was amazing. The lobster rav, was ok. The snapper was good, Seafood risotto was better. Finished with lamb (overcooked) but flavors were there. Dessert was ok, didn’t seem house made.
Service was not bad, but the server for the next table was better than ours. He took time to clearly explain specials and a wine deal our server didn’t even tell us about. Our server rushed us to order. It was Saturday at 8pm but place was only 2/3 full.
Ambience was nice.
I was visiting Orlando for a cheer competition and the hotel where we were staying restaurant was still closed due to COVID. The employee recommended this restaurant. The food and especially the cheese garlic bread was great. The staff was remarkable. I highly recommend this restaurant. I will visit again when I come back to Orlando.
Service ok. Could be better. Sensed little prejudice in one of the servers. Food was good. May not return because of server attitude. Many restaurants have good food but great service is important.
Dinner was fabulous. The wine list was very nice. Had 3 different pastas, which were spot on perfect. The bread and dessert were also great. Had the lobster bisque. It was quite good, but not at the level of the pasta dishes. Would go back for sure.
Food was absolutely amazing! Everyone enjoyed. Staff were nice and always welcome to answer any questions. Would definitely go to this restaurant again.
Amazing Mother’s Day dinner. Carmelo was an amazing waiter. We always make sure that we come to ciao when we do our yearly trip to Orlando. We were very sad that 2020 we couldn’t be there so we made sure to make our reservation early for 2021. Once again Ciao didn’t let us down.
Went Mother's day brought family very good food and service.
My wife ordered a risotto but could not finish because the rice was extremely salty. Overall a good experience. Would have been great if it was not for the rice.
A nice neighborhood place. My guests enjooyed their meals, I however found the veal very dry and lacking in flavor. The pasta was also very bland. Guests that ordered the seafood dishes were very pleased.
Loved it! Would definitely go again
Too many things to list. Will not be going back. I don't recommend this restaurant.
We had a lovely dinner! We asked to share both the Chicken Marsala and the Sacchietti pasta with steak tips. Both were great but the restaurant actually split the dinners for us and gave us separate plates!! It was so nice that they did that for us! Both dinners were exceptional as was the limoncello cake that we had for dessert! Completely unexpected the dining room to be so nice as it was in a strip mall! Glad we went!
Great personal dining experience. Food selection is authentic Italian.
Good Italian. Nice atmosphere. Would recommend, when in the area and looking for a non-chain restaurant.
Tucked away in the corner of a strip mall, you’d miss it if you weren’t looking for it, but once you enter the ambiance is really nice and looks authentically Italian. Food is amazing and very tasty. No full bar, only wine and beer, but that was fine. Only issue was we ordered a salad and it never came... would definitely go there again on our next visit to Orlando!
Delicious food and very attentive wait staff. We had the bruschetta, lasagna and pollo marsala. We enjoyed every bite! Would definitely go back!!
Good food & service, would recommend to anyone looking for good Italian food.
We had delicious meals & excellent service, our waitee was so polite, helpful & considerate. aloceky dinung experience, my only regret is that I did not have room foe one of their yummy desserts!
Food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was warm and inviting
Last time we were here was 4 years ago— we said if we ever return to Orlando we will return because the food and service was outstanding.
Our dinner tonight was just as amazing as it was four years ago— we had the same server who was helpful with food and wine selections— totally outstanding!
One of the best Italian meal we have ever had. From the free lance margaritas to Italian bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar bread dip to Caesar salad to shrimp scampi to lemon cello cake the meal was outstanding.
Our favorite orlando restaurant. Brought home leftovers, ate for lunch around the pool today. Couldn't let any go to waste. Love it
Went with the family and really enjoyed the food and the service. Eduardo (sp?) was friendly and helpful. We will return next time we are in the area.
Best food and service in Orlando. Period.
This is our go to place when visiting Orlando. Don’t let the strip center surroundings fool you. This family owned restaurant has been on our list every trip for fine Italian dining. Food is excellent and wine list is extensive and reasonable. They do not have a bar, but try the Amarone or Barolo wine for a treat.
