I have been in town for 1 week and have eaten out every night at a different restaurant. By far, Ciao Bistro has provided the best service and food in town. My family and I look forward to going back.

Service was prompt. My portion size was more than enough and the appetizers can be shared. Try the bruschetta and mushroom pasta

Very busy restaurant with staff who operate smoothly and turn tables quickly without making you feel like you should hurry. Good food and wine choices. Shrimp scampi was very good and bread was delicious! Desserts enjoyed also

The most delicious continental cuisine in Florida! Top notch food and service. The special, Shrimp Picatta, was fantastic and the lobster raviolis were superb! If you're in north Florida or beautiful Fernandina Beach don't miss Ciaos it is a destination restaurant ....... don't miss it!

...when we stopped in for after-dinner drinks only at the bar. Friendly bartender and staff would have led us to come back for a full meal, but unfortunately this was our last night on AI.

We were looking for a casual Italian meal and ended up at Ciao Bistro. The food was very good and the service adequate. We would eat there again, but not if we were looking for a fine dining experience or a lingering evening meal.
