I would have given the food a “5” however my veal chop, though flavorful was on the fatty side. Julian, our waiter did a fantastic job and the Chef even came out and prepared my wife’s special dessert table side. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful food and service. The Short Ribs and Osso Buco were exceptional. Sitting outside on the sidewalk on 3rd Ave was quieter than you would think. Hope to go back soon to try some other items.

One of Naples best Italian restaurants. The ambiance is more like a Wisconsin Supper Club rather than what you expect to see in downtown Naples, but everything on the menu is excellent! It was a little noisy the day we were there because there was a large group sitting next to us, but that's something that just happens sometimes no matter where it is. Service was great too!

A true neighborhood gem...traditional favorites with authentic Italian chef Gianfranco! Carol and staff always welcoming and tables are spaced apart for comfortable dining during these times. See you soon! My Chicken Marsala with ANGEL hair pasta substitution was delicious with the Marsala sauce!! 🤗🤗

We had a lovely evening at Ristorante Ciao—quiet and off the beaten path as others had suggested. Our server Reese gave us good recommendations for wine and food and was appropriately attentive all night. I already knew I would have my favorites carpaccio and Osso Buco and both were outstanding. My boyfriend took the suggestions of the pan-fried calamari with Parmesan and the pounded veal chop and enjoyed them both. The complementary dessert for my birthday was yummy and appreciated.

Excellent experience Saturday night. Calamari and mussels were delicious. Osso buca, chicken piccata and fettuccine ciao were all delicious. Bellinis were great as well. Sat outside on a beautiful Naples night with plenty of shade from the big tree. We will definitely be back.

This was our first visit and it was fantastic. We sat outside on a lovely evening and the service was perfect at a pace that we set - we weren’t rushed and we were able to enjoy the delicious pastas and main courses. The veal chop Milanese was awesome as was the variety of pastas. Delicious deserts - just an awesome experience. It is at the top of our list of Downtown Naples restaurants.

Ambiance is very nice. Service is very good and we didn't feel rushed at all. The chicken picatta and veal marsala were excellent. The only negative thing I could say is that the portions are small. After a glass of wine, salad, dinner, and dessert I was dissapointed I wasn't taking any leftovers home.

Had a very good meal at Ciao, server Autumn was prompt and helpful. Started with calamari. Wow...best I have ever had. Not the typical fried circular calamari with tomato based sauce. The strips of the calamari were thicker and pan fried. The sauce made the dish, delicious. I had the Osso Buco, it was excellent, especially notable was the risotto accompanying the main course. My wife had the veal parmigiana. It was fine, but I don’t think it was much different than the norm. All in all, an excellent experience. Highly recommended the calamari! and Osso Buco.

Really enjoyed the service - prompt but relaxed when appropriate. Knowledgeable wine service. Nice choice of wines and the menu is very traditional Italian. Having lived in Italy I view this as a blessing. While I enjoy the creativity of other Naples Italian restaurants, it is sometimes just nice to come ‘home’. Prices are reasonable too. This was our fourth visit in 2 years. Consistent.

Terrific find. Wonderful food and service. This is excellent, well prepared no frills food like we would expect to get in Italy. Just outside the 5th Ave craziness to nice and quiet sitting outdoors. The interior of the restaurant looked very nice but that will be for some other time.
