This is a nice little café. The gelato and ice cream served here are delicious. The food I had was also good. Offered here is a passable selection of juices, soft drinks, beers, alcoholic drinks and boxed wine. Ciao's is a pleasant getaway from the hot hustle of Scarborough. The ambience could be improved by turning the music down a... More

I have been to Ciao on numerous occasions, I have been wowed, satisfied and sadly now disappointed. The standard has severely dropped from my first experience in 2010 to 2017....they need to re evaluate and re consider so that they can continue to represent Italy in the future.

Fantastic selection of delicious ice cream - best in the Caribbean ! Do not miss this place. Also serve great fresh coffee. Free wifi and TV (sports channels). Small bar serving the local beers etc.....a delightful unassuming place, a very short walk from the harbour in Scarborough. Its worth a visit. Prices are reasonable - particularly as the standard shop... More

I've came back lately and I've found that the quality of the ice cream it's even better than I recall. I really wanted to try all the different flavours. I'll surely come back again. Also the cappuccio and the espresso coffe it's great: they tasted like the one I drink in Italy.

Too many flavors to choose from, all excellent. The macchiato was perfectly made and the service was good.

We tried pizzas, pasta and salads. All were excellent! Pizzas are cooked in a wood oven and the final taste is wonderful. Very friendly staff

Visited here as a "Girls Night Out" with my 3 friends on a Friday night. It was the perfect late night restaurant/cafe for a casual lime with friends. Service was on point! Waitress was quite friendly and well at the time we were the only ones there, so we enjoyed ourselves even more. But other than that, we had one... More

I ventured here last Thursday evening. It was the sole bright spot in that part of Scarborough at that time of day. I was expecting an ice-cream parlour but when I entered, there was quite a lively bar atmosphere. I was a bit apprehensive about taking my 10 year old daughter in, but it turned out fine. We got our... More

We went there as a group and the place is too small to accommodate many people. They tried to make us sit together but the tables were shaking and the plates were paper squares. The pizza was worse than the one I make, but the gelato was very good according to the children.

Thank you racytraveller for your review and we are glad that your children enjoy our gelato. We look at the reviews to improve ourself in order to give the best. Unfortunately we don't recall your group or any other group with such complaints. It is always strongly recommended to book in advance for a group over 4 people to avoid... More
