Our Story

     At Ciao Italian Restaurant we strive to bring our customers what we like to call "The Ultimate Dining Experience".  In order to achieve our goal, we take great pride in providing exceptional quality in service, product and atmosphere.  We are a family owned restaurant with a friendly, cozy and somewhat romantic feel much the same as the Tratorrias of Italy.    

     We are constantly working with our wine vendors to provide our customers with one of the most unique and up to date wine lists available while keeping prices low.  While our main focus is on the wines of Italy, we have laid out the wine list in a way that provides opportunities to enjoy the freshness of New World Wines and the rustic selections from our Old World selections.  The Cellar Selection portion of the wine list features wines highly rated by the Wine Spectator, some very difficult to come by and perfect for that special occasion and those with a discriminating palate.

     Our daily lunch and nightly dinner specials allow us to feature our Chef's creativity as well as locally sourced foods while providing something new and different for our customers to try.  All of our chicken stock, veal stock and sauces are made fresh daily and each entree is made to order.  Our Mama's meatballs, lasagna, marinara sauce and even our house made mozzarella are family recipes that have been passed down through the generations.

We hope that you enjoy your dining experience at Ciao Italian Restaurant and please let us know if we can help with a special event in the restaurant or at your location with our catering options.  We appreciate your business.  Thank you!
