Visited Ciao on the last night of our Easter short break and we were not disappointed. The cafe style restaurant was very quiet (one other party left soon after we arrived) and we ended up having the restaurant to ourselves but this didn't deter from...More

On the recommendation of Trip Advisor my friend and I visited Ciao for dinner this evening. Unfortunately it was not a pleasant experience. The food was average at best. My starter of goat's cheese on ciabatta was dry therefore not particularly enjoyable. My main course...More

This is an excellent restaurant serving authentic Italian food with passione! We were staying in bournemouth for only one night and happened to meet a lovely Italian lady who works in House of Fraser (Alessandra). She recommended this restaurant and we are very grateful.
