We came here on recommendation from various sources and in particular to request Anda to be the server. We were 6 in the party and it was a very nice experience of quality food, excellent service and great atmosphere. A must visit when in town.

We were on vacation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and found Ciao. We enjoyed our meals and the service so much that we visited a second time before the end of our vacation week. We had salads, appetizers, and entrees and all were exceptional. We will be back in August 2017 with family and will definately visit Ciao again.

Have not been to Ciao for about 5 years, but was very happy to see they have expanded. Had a reservation, and was seated right away.

My girlfriend and I stopped by Ciao for dinner after a nice recommendation. We are glad we did, it definitely made our night!
