Great meal served with warm bread and butter. Rum punch was good as was the rigatoni with eggplant.. I had the chocolate cake for dessert and it was delicious too. Inside eating with table cloths and linen napkins.

Trapped by a rain storm wife and I stopped at Ciao's restaurant and bar for a drink. It was the best mojito we have had since Porto Rico 6 years ago.!

Surprisingly good Italian fare! It has great vegetarian options and is within 5 minutes' walking distance of the Marriott at Frigate Bay. Also would be great for families.

It is less than a ten minute walk --- in the area is a liquor store plus Rams mini grocery store and 3-4 other restaurants. But don't limit yourself to walking restaurants as some just a short taxi ride away are well worth... More
