We go there with friends on a regular basis and have always loved it. I must say, they have the best liver around. I know most people don't like liver but for those who do oh, this is the place to order it.

The type of place you don't want to give a raving review in fear that everyone will flock there and make it impossible for you to get a reservation. The wait staff is professional and the food is excellent. My wife's favorite in Naples for dinner.

We just love going to this restaurant. Our hostess, servers and the food choices (& pricing) is excellent! Whenever we get company in to visit we always take them here. You can actually hear each other talking during dinner and the ambient noise is non existent. Five stars and please keep up the great service.

I have been wanting to try Ciao for sometime as I had heard good things. I was not disappointed. Our meals were awesome. My husband has the braised beef ravioli and I had shrimp risotto. Both delicious. For desert my husband chose a canolli and I had the zabaglione. My desert was amazing!!
The service was great. We will be sure to return.

I received phone call the day ahead to inform us of construction nearby which really helped us when we arrived. The decor was lovely - very inviting and comfortable. Our waiter was outstanding. The food was tremendous. We had the Summer specials which were delicious and extremely reasonable. The sauce on my fish was fantastic. The short rib ravioli looked excellent. My husband had a chicken dish with tomatoes which he loved. Overall, a wonderful dinner with friends. We will be back!

Quiet, ambiance, food was excellent, never had calamari presented and cook this way, also Osso bucco so tender, and talk about the special dessert that our server recommend us, telling us do you trust me, then you should have the sabayon desert, house specialty. We did that was the most delicious dessert we had. thanks
It was our first visit and certainly not then last

We were there on Pasta Night, & really enjoyed it. I had the beef ravioli & thought it was excellent. My husband was less enamored with his sausage/pasta. He thought the lobster bisque was spectacular! Nice, relatively quiet table. Definitely go back.
