Ciao’s never fails to deliver. This is at the top of our “must” eat location when in Myrtle Beach. Mussels in scampi sauce is our favorite appetizer. Favorite dishes include shrimp and sausage Palermo, veal or chicken saltimboco, calebrese, chicken Marsala. I could go on because everything we’ve had here has been over the top!!

Our favorite restaurant in Myrtle Beach. Excellent Italian food and top notch owners and wait staff. I worry that the secret gets out for this local favorite, and we can no longer get in.

Great happy hour on top of everything else!

Ciao is the resl deal! Linguine and clams was by far the best I have ever had. Service was outstanding. Our server David was outstanding. A table side visit from Claudia (the owner) topped the evening off.

Ciao never disappoints!
The ambiance is lovely and he service is always outstanding, but we eat out for the food! The food at Ciao is extraordinary. The flavors are spot-on and everything is always cooked to perfection. We had the most delicious fried calamari and baked clams for appetizers. The baked clams had us sopping up the buttery garlic juice with our bread - very Italian style! My main was spaghetti carbonaro. The flavor was well so balanced between the onion and bacon and cream...perfect! My husband had Chicken Saltimbuca which was juicy and flavorful and a generous portion. My son had his fav, Chicken Parmigiana, which was a very good portion of thick cutlet topped with sauce and a delicious layer of the smoothest mozzarella ever. We came for the food and Ciao really delivered!

Always a great meal. We visit them every time we’re in Myrtle Beach, 6-7 times a year. We have even gone to twice in a week. Tom ,our favorite server , always takes very good care of us. Great spaghetti with marinara & meatballs. My husband loves the carbonara, my brother-in-law loves the grouper Francesca.
