Ciao Pasta has a really lovely patio perfect for social distancing. The food is delicious and our server, Ruben, was attentive but not intrusive, and fun. Highly recommend Ciao Pasta!
Awesome! Food is excellent!
Amazing smelling food as it passes your table sparks inspiration as you try your best to select only one item from the menu. The consistency and flavor of the freshest ingredients. Wonderful staff, with an outstanding outdoor dining experience!
We have dined here many times and the food is always delicious. We went at 5:30 and they were not very busy. The service was a bit lacking. We waited at least 10 minutes before our water took our drink orders, and we had to make requests at least twice.
Amazing place, great service, simple and tasty food. Well done
The lobster ravioli was excellent. I would definitely order it again.
Gluten free pizza was fantastic. Love that your menu includes gluten free options!
Food as always was superb. Service on this night could have been more prompt, but a lovely evening nonetheless
Great menu and good food! Outside patio can get a little noisy! But my vegetarian son loved the gluten free pizza and pasta.
Great neighborhood restaurant with patio dining. Always great food and service.
Ciao is a neighborhood gem. The food is fresh, seasonal and delicious. Their menu is varied and able to suit everyone's preferences. Excellent pizzas, pasta, fresh fish, chicken, port and steak. They have a good wine list, by the glass or bottle, that serves various price points. This restaurant has become one of our very favorite restaurants. Right now, it is outside patio dining only due to covid 19 restrictions, but they have a nice indoor dining room once the restrictions are lifted. Free parking is available behind the restaurant.
Perfect portions, delicious food, drink was perfect! Will go back to this local gem soon!
Best gluten free pizza ever! Coming back here every chance I get
One can never go wrong with Ciao. It's a local favorite and reservations are recommended....they can get vey busy! We've had everything from appetizers to pizza and entrees and never had a bad meal.
The food was excellent. The patio could use some fans as it was a it hot with no breeze.
We love this restaurant for the food and the service as it is always great.
Outstanding service from Ruben!
Wonderful food and service. We love their patio as well! Great little spot for everyday or date night!
Always good and staff are very personable.
I have been to Ciao Pasta numerous times. It’s my go-to for authentic Italian. I love the food, the ambiance, and the service so much I make the drive from San Diego. They never disappoint! I have brought friends/family here and they all agree...Ciao Pasta is THE BEST!
The BRASATO DI MANZO is a MUST HAVE! Really great food, nice wine selection.

The salmon is always amazing.

Been to better italian.
Lunch gathering of old friends. Wine list was very nice and the appetizers were good, bland but good. The entrees sounded so much better than they tasted and the tab was pretty high for lunch
Great evening with family celebrating birthday!
This is one of our never fail, go to local places. Consistent quality on the food and casual patio dining!
Our first time at Ciao Pasta and we were pleasantly surprised. It was a Saturday night and a little crowded so the tables on the patio were a bit closer than six feet apart. The service was a little slow but the food made up for it. The bread was delicious and the house salad large enough to split. I had pasta and my wife had the veal with a lemon sauce. Both were wonderful. We will be sure to go back again to try a couple of other dishes.
This is our fourth time eating at Ciao because we like it a lot. The owner is there to welcome you as you enter and is very present throughout the restaurant. Right now, it is patio dining only due to the covid-19 requirements, but that has not affected the quality of the food nor the service. Both remain very good. The branzino fish entree is delicious along with their chicken breast entree. My husband always orders their seafood pasta. He eats half of it and enjoys the rest the next day at home. All of the entrees are delicious. You can't go wrong no matter what you order. Ciao is located in a delightful setting right across the street from the SJC Mission. Parking is readily available in the public parking lot near the entrance. This has become one of our very favorite restaurants in the area. We always know eating there will be a nice experience.
Great dinner, staff was courteous and food was delicious!
We were very impressed with Pascal (owner) and his team. They have created a safe environment during this Covid mess and delivered superb service and food. Never disappointed in going here. The food is fresh and delicious.
