Ciao Italian Restaurant is a family owned restaurant. We refuse to cut corners on our food. We search the market daily to find the freshest available local ingredients. All of our chicken stock, veal stock, and sauces are made fresh daily. Our food is all made from scratch and we cook to order, and its easy to accommodate any food allergies our special diets. Our Mama's meatballs, lasagna, marinara sauce, and our house made mozzarella are recipes that are passed down through the generations. We try to maintain a very friendly, cozy and happy feel to our restaurant. we ant you to feel like you are having a meal at one of your family's house. While we want to remain family friendly we also provide you with a restaurant that also has a romantic feel. Much of the same as the Tratorias of Italy. While we maintain a high level of service we like to keep it relaxed so that you can feel comfortable.

    Another great meal! As usual this great local establishment did not disappoint. Delicious fried green tomato app and all three entrees were perfect. Morgan was attentive and friendly. Love having this gem to take out of town guests to …they are always impressed. And you can count on seeing friends/other locals there which is fun !

    Jason the waiter was great. Noise level a little loud due to drunk girl in main room being loud. Was not happy for the fact there were bugs flying around a lot and also flying in bathrooms. Other than that the visit was good 👍

    I'm definitely eating here again! I usually go to another Italian restaurant at the other end of the beach but this was worth it! Parking isn't ideal, but currently there is parking at locations next door. The food was fantastic! Best calamari I've ever had.

    I had the seared scallops with papardelle and it was one of the best dishes I've ever had! Seared scallops were perfect. My husband had the Zuppa and it was easily enough for two. We will definitely go back. The only thing thst kept this from all 5 stars was the booth we sat in. Seating was uncomfortable and extremely tight for both of us (normal sized individuals). Tolerable but next time will speak up if we have same issue.
