Food was just bad, Pasta was stale. But the biggest issue I had was the creepy and shady service going on. The total came to 83.44, *tip included* (even though there were only 3 people being served), so I gave the waiter $90.00. 10 minutes

A couple of us dined at Ciao on Saturday night. The place is pretty nice...although you could feel the draft of the wind from outside as you sat. We ordered Bruschetta Pauline which was OK...and also ordered Gnocchi. It was AWESOME.
