We have been patronizing Ciao Italia since February 1995 based on a recommendation from a friend who lived locally. We lived in NY at the time and whenever we visited anywhere near Orlando, we had dinner at Ciao Italia. Now we live in Central Florida and are able to eat here more often. Our visit on 2/4/17 to celebrate our... More

Excellent food, service and reasonable prices! Just what I needed after a long day at a conference. My server was Italian, the music was Italian, and my food was fast and fresh! Don't let the run down mall dissuade you from stopping here.

Every time we visit Orlando, we stop by Ciao Italia. The service is attentive and the food is very good. The fish is always very fresh, and the pastas are prepared so well. It is located close to the Orlando Convention Center, so it is very convenient if you are there for a conference.

I had the lasagna and it was good. My friends had chicken parmigiana and spaghetti with meat balls. The portions were good and we enjoyed the dinner. It was not over crowded but we were early. Our meals ran $15-18.

We decided to check this place out since it located so close to our hotel ( and quite frankly we were done with their food). Small cozy place , but nice aomosphere and the food was wonderful. If you're looking for a break from fast, greasy food, check it out!

Saw the four star reviews and that they came from Massachusetts and we had to try it. It's in a strip mall and has a quiet intimate atmosphere inside. My chicken parm melted in my mouth and the cannoli had dried fruit in it and I was weary of it until I tried it and found it gave it a... More

Didn't have a reservation but they manage to fit me in as a table for one. Staff were friendly and attentive. Service was speedy. Food was delicious. I had the chicken in breadcrumbs with spaghetti. The meal was reasonably priced too. I'd recommend making a reservation because the place did get quite busy as the evening went on!

The lemoncello chicken was divine and don't even get me started on the bread, Cesar salad, and soup... As fantastic as dinner was, it packed in comparison to the lemoncello marscapone cake. I'm sure all of their desserts are delicious but this is a must!

Tucked away in a small strip mall, Ciao Italia is an excellent hidden gem. Our food was superb. I had the Seafood Linguine and hubby had the Veal special. Both were expertly prepared. To end our meal we had the Limoncello Marzipone Cake...phenomenal. Added this to your dining list.

Welcomed upon arrival in this unique little Italian Restaurant where ambiance, albeit modest, filled the room. I ordered a white fish entree which was excellent. Good wine, superb wait service and the best Tiramisu I have ever enjoyed. Don't be made hesitant by the location in a strip mall location. The food is wonderful.
