Went there last evening for dinner. They were out of one of the appetizers and linguine. The service was ok. We asked the waitress for a few things never made it to our table. The food was very good and the portions were generous. We would definitely go back there again.

Great food and Service. My husband sat down on a sticky booth seat. They did apologize but I feel the should have at least given him a complimentary drink.

Fine dining. Wonderful ambiance. Scallops were perfect. Made-in-their-kitchen mozzarella was scrumptious. Do yourself a favor and make your reservations now.

Overall the meal was very good, but I was a little disappointed when the chef would not accommodate my request to use white wine in the Veal Saltimbocca. I therefore had to change my order to something else as I know I do not like like it with the brown sauce. Most restaurants accommodate that request without a problem. So, I would have to say that I would think twice before dining there in the future if I had my heart set on that dish. To me it should not have bee a big deal as other veal dishes are made using the white wine.

This restaurant serves EXCELLENT Italian food. Try any veal or shrimp dish you would like and you will be convinced. The ciabatta bread alone served with your salad before your meal should convince you.

We have been to Ciao many times over the years and have always been pleased. This time however, although the food was good, it not as tasty as our previous visits. We will return again because of our previous experiences

We had reservations but were told they had lots of reservations and seated us in the loud crowded bar area. Our waiter (bartender) did his best to accommodate us while being the bartender for the bar area and restaurant. Later the hostess walked over and asked if we were the reservation for 7:00 (2). She proceeded on seating a couple that just arrived at our reserved table. A lot of confusion at this restaurant but the food was very good and the bartender’s service was great.

Our severs were excellent...paid just the right amount of attention to us. Our meals and wine were outstanding. We started with the antipasta...loaded with goodies. My wife had veal saltimbaca and I had Calabrese - spicy chicken and sausage with red peppers....both outstanding. We would definitely go back.

They were understaffed and we ended up with the host as our waiter. He had tables and working the front door and phone. Our took a long time and we we asked for something, it took an unusual amount of time. However, the food was delicious and worth it. If you are on a tight schedule pick another day. I would definitely go back, and hope to have a better experience.
