There is everything to love about Ciao Pasta. It's a family restaurant that treats you like a member of the family. The food, the prices, the drinks, the free delicious bruschetta. We live 30 minutes away and our family travels to eat here at least...More

You pick they type of pasta you like and they you can pick the type of sauce you want on it. I do feel it's a bit pricey though.

Ciao Pasta is worth the drive up to Franklin! The food is amazing and the staff are just fantastic, friendly and helpful. They have delicious daily specials. I go for the pasta, perfect every time, with the awesome sauces!

All their meals are excellent. You can pick your pasta, your meat, and sauce or just pick a meal already combined. Popular location sometimes there is a line to get a table but worth the wait.

My wife and I ate at Ciao Pasta on 21 July. This restaurant is a hidden gem in the Tilton/Franklin area. The food was excellent with a great choice of pasta, sauces, and "add-ons." They have a good selection of wine at very reasonable prices. The staff was friendly, courteous, and provided excellent service. With all the low end chain restaurants in the Tilton area, this is the best place to eat, by far.
