Staying in town for work for the week, I asked the front desk for some recommendations for places to eat. Ciao was one of the first places she recommended saying its her favorite Italian place. After having lunch at Ciao I do not agree. Restaurant...More

This place has been around a long time. It has had its ups and downs in my experience, but is solid and dependable now and won't disappoint. A good place for a business lunch. Good unobtrusive service. Ample portions. Give them a try!

Truthfully, the best. Not overcooked but done. Great lunch dish. I get this often and it has been good everything. The owner is here and that makes a difference.

This is always a frequent lunch spot. The appearance is much better since they changed the carpet. I am still not sure why they chose carpet instead of a nice tile though. The food is great. The prices are reasonable especially for the quality of...More

Ciao's is one of those restaurants best known to locals. It has unpretentious frontage & is located on the southern fringe of downtown. Ample on-street parking is available. Out-of-towners will not innately know about it or be drawn to it unless they are referred by...More
