This was our third visit. The first two times we really enjoyed the food. This time the food was awful.

Had an excellent dinner at Ciao on Monday. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. This place has become a "go to" spot in West Bloomfield.

Excellent options a very varied menu! We had dinner at the bar. The bartender was super! If the party is a twosome I suggest the bar. A bit more intimate and they booths in the bar area. You will enjoy the experience. Nice wine selection as well!

Went and celebrated my friends birthday ,the service was not very good there was not enough weight staff and it took forever to get our food. I called about two hours prior to our reservation to make sure our table was ready and when we got there we still had to wait why she set the table up. This was the second time I’ve been to the restaurant and not sure I will go back.

My dinner was great, but my mother ordered the perch dinner with mashed potatoes and she did not like it. She said it was very bland. She tried to spice it up with salt and pepper but it did not work. The waiter never came by to check to see how our meal was, when she could have sent it back. She was hungry so she ate it. This being Mothers Day, this was not a good time for her.
In the future, if we come back, maybe we should only order Italion.

That was a pretty expensive buffet. I would have never reserved if I had known it would be just a buffet until 4pm. My wife hates buffets so not ideal for Mother’s Day for us. It would have been nice to have known that in advance.

Party of 4. Good value food with generous portions. Wine prices reasonable. Perch was average, nothing special. Chicken Marsala served with 3 vegetables pretty good but had better Marsala marinade. Pleasant service. Everyone took home a box. Would go there again.

Food was good however there was a party that brought their own music. They played it so loud we couldn’t hear each other. The manager asked them several times to turn it down only to have them turn it right back up again. So disrespectful of the other people in the restaurant. Management should never have allowed them to have the music in the first place. The staff were apologetic but did not offer anything in compensation. I would not go back

Not sure about a recommendation. Rolls and salad were super. Entrees left a bit to e desired. The pork chop was slightly overcooked, but the sauce was excellent. No one at the table raved about their entrees but all enjoyed them. Service was attentive.

Not to mention that it was the most lovely date I ever had and do pray very hard to make this the one and only!!!! - you, your team and Ambiente of Ciao Italian were more than critical for this incredible outcome !!! What fun your team was, the cozynes, the calmness around us , the privacy we got to endure - the knowledge of the coach sensing fast what we were in the mood for , the quality of the food and the surprisingly lovely Valpolicella - the response of Natalie was “this is fun”, after she tasted the first touch...-
I can’t be thankful enough to the Ciao Italia for this Easter present. And you will make word of it to every person I I terrace with!

Food was not as good as it normally is at Ciao. Took my mother, aunt and grandmother. We did not wait long and our waiter was decent. The shrimp was undercooked and food was so so. Cake was superb!

Normally it’s pretty good but they booked to many big parties of over 10 people, so the noise level got loud and the service went down!

Our waitress, Rosalind was exceptional. She helped us make choices with a sense of humor and did a terrific job. The veal was a bit over cooked, the regular salad could have been jazzed up a bit. It was offered at an additional charge. The special ravioli was great, but topped with greens, that didn’t go well with the dish. Overall it was a very good experience.

All was very very lovely and so high standard!! We did like the choices the quality, the privacy of our table the noise level was outstanding , even so there were lots of people there. The food fantastic, the wine as well, the selection of the wines up to a European restaurant in Europe - very very satisfied! Congratulations to all of the team !
We had a server who did also very well all around impressed, if I may suggest he could add to the experience if he would have taken the time to promote the dining options a bit more and also spent a little more time with us but in a less frequent way.
That would have been the 10/10 , I’m sure the next time we visit it will be that way.
Thank you

Thoughtfully designed environment. Loved the lumbar support provided by the chairs. Not too noisy for good conversation. Aaron was a knowledgable and attentive server. I was disappointed that there was no red blend wine offered by the glass. Aaron offered two delicious alternative samples. Main course came quickly. We set our salads aside to enjoy our hot entrees and the salads were quickly bussed without asking. (We chose not to mention it but offer this comment for future reference.) My friend and I enjoyed our meals. They were well prepared, presented and delicious. Will definitely return.
