Place has inside/outside places to eat. We did reservation but people walked up and could it as well. Good was good not great, red sauce was a little salty on both meals. Relaxing place to eat

I told my date that the title of this review would be the time it took for the staff of Ciao's to bus an adjacent table. This restaurant is nothing short of outstanding. In 33 seconds they had the leftover dishes removed, the table stripped, wiped down, new linen tablecloths and napkins and the polished silver placed. I have a... More

We got there around 7pm on a weeknight and were seated on arrival. The service at this restaurant was very good. Our waiter checked on us several times but not intrusive. I was actually leaning toward the thin crust pizza but went for the spaghetti instead. My wife got the alfredo with chicken. Both were Excellent. It had a quiet... More

If you love a good eggplant Parmesan you know how difficult it can be to find one that's memorable.

My husband and I both loved our meals here. He had spaghetti and meatballs and I had shrimp and scallops FraDiablo. Excellent taste and the prices were reasonable. The service was excellent. We would definitely come back next visit.

Made a reservation and we were glad we did with visited this restaurant many times but we are in the area, we like the outside seating.
