Try the grilled calamari. It's melt in your mouth good. The ambience in all Ciao baby's is romantic and the italian look and feel makes me feel that I'm back in Tuscany

Went in for special set seen outside the restaurant. Tried to order that dish, but I was at the wrong day of the week. Where the dates were displayed was blocked by some weight to hold the sign. Not fair to customers.

Vegetarian options were ok, did not enjoy the pasta at all. Lacks flavour and was a disappointment. The four cheeses pizza was not up to much

The place has a lovely setting, good evening views and their ice cream selection is wide and is tasty. The service is good and I personally like their food. My partner on the other hand has more sophisticated tastes, so to her it's average. To me it's slightly better than that...

Good pasta and pizza. Also serve a good brunch/ buffet breakfast. Not the best valuable, but certainly not unreasonable.

After having excellent food here in the past we were looking forward to our meal. We ordered the sirloin and it was ROTTEN!! And a when I say rotten I mean smelling!

Good - very well presented - some meals are value for money. The different styles of meals are well worth trying. Pasta and pizza always a famous for someone who is Italian.
