This was my first time at Ciao. I'll be back, and often! I had the Black Bass over Mushroom Risotto with a Lobster Sherry Cream Sauce. It was unbelievable!! Perhaps the best fish dish I have ever had.

The chicken alfredo is to die for. The best I have ever had. Chicken piccata was also very good. Service was excellent and very friendly. Will definitely recommend this place to others.

We met friends for happy hour & then dinner. Drinks were reasonably priced as was the food. Italian style meals. Food was good as were the appetizers. We had a waiter & waitress for our table of 10 plus a trainee. Staff was very efficient & polite. Will go back again next time we go to Myrtle Beach.

Since then the restaurant has expanded and the food has remained the same, excellent. Ciao is the best Italian restaurant in Myrtle Beach. Not only did we have great food, the service was top...

Phenomenal! We went for noon dinner - very quiet, not crowded, very local. EVerything is a la carte. Entrees were in the $11 range. Portions are not large, but the food is out of this world. We had the manicotti - very good - but the Spinach and Walnut Ravioli was above and beyond anything I've ever eaten. Served in... More

Must try for Italian. Small out of the way restaurant. Great food and service. Had lunch there and portions were filling. Caesar salad was excellent. Lasagna was almost as good as my wife's

I'm a local but I still have a lot to learn about great hidden gems. This is one of them. Great prices, great food and the best soup I've ever, ever had. Will definitely go back again.

Been here probably 10 times in the last 12 month. Consistently great service and quality of food is outstanding. Tried the lasagna and must say it was awesome. It looked like a small portion, but was more than enough. The tomato sauce is very flavorful, just really good. They run out of tiramisu which was a bummer but tried the... More

Had another great dinner this past March, 2018. We have been coming here for the last 4 years and we are planning on returning many more times in the coming years. My past reviews are pretty much the same. We will be returning in Oct, 2017.
