    Very good price/value. Taste is excellent as well as Service. Tablecloth and noise level are making this restaurant more European style. No push to pay. You can enjpy the time there.

    🌹Valentine’s Day, 5pm, reservations, the food was delicious and the ambience was lovely as usual. I love this place! Normally it’s my favorite restaurant in Fenton. The entire evening would have been absolutely perfect and romantic if only we had not sat for 25 minutes before being greeted by the server or even getting a drink order. My fiancé finally had to go to the hostess and let them know we felt we were forgotten. Our waiter passed by us and must have seen us at least 10 times as he served existing and new guests that arrived. Then when the host brought our neglect to his attention, he profusely blamed the host for not telling him we had been seated in his section. I was also surprised to see my favorite dish that I always order, the lamb shank and risotto was a cut down to half the size and priced at $45 instead of the usual $30. The single, long stem rose they gifted to each lady guest as seated, the complementary glass of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries they gifted everyone were quite lovely gestures and appreciated. It helped to soften a few of the unpleasant issues. Note, I probably wouldn’t have been so disappointed with the wait if I had not been so hangry. Hadn’t eaten a thing all day. And it reminded us of the terrible service at another local restaurant two days earlier, breakfast at Leo’s. It took the waitress 30 minutes to take our order.

    We had dinner New Years eve. The restaurant was full. Service was a little slow but understandable due to the crowd. The server was great. The menu was excellent. I had one of the specials which was a Tuna and ressoto, which was fantastic. We will return on a less crowded night. It is certainly upscale, table cloths, crystal and nice room

    Our dinner was a double birthday celebration for my mother and me. My sister joined us. They had only experienced a takeout dinner from Ciao once. They recommended it for our evening, so we were all eager to enjoy the evening. Sam, our server was terrific, so indulgent of my 95 y/o mother’s chatty friendliness, and attentive to all of us. My sister and I are big fish lovers: sadly her salmon was overcooked and my chef’s special was breaded, which I would not have ordered had I known. Today our mother is possibly reacting badly to her pasta primavera — though such a simple dish. On the other hand, the Ciao wine menu was extensive in its offerings, especially international varietals that are my favourites.

    This was our second trip to Ciao, and it was just as perfect as the first time. Excellent food, and they know how to make their guests feel welcome and special. Emily is an excellent server, and we will continue to request her on our future trips. Can’t say enough positive things about Emily and Ciao.

    We had a party of 6 celebrating a birthday. Waiter was very attentive and had a trainee. Manager came by before we got our food to see how we were doing but never came back when we got our food. One order, Food came out incorrectly (noodles instead of mashed potatoes). Another order they forgot the coconut chicken on the salad (it was a coconut chicken salad). Waiter took the salad back to get it corrected, and get the missing mashed potatoes. Got the potatoes 10 mins later but no salad. Said they were finishing up coconut chicken. 20 mins later after everyone was done eating, brought the salad out. He took it off the bill. Their was two managers up front and they seemed to be busy talking instead of checking the food coming out. The table next to us had cold meatballs served…
