Very nice dinner. Pastas are freshly made, good sauces. Nice salumeria appetizer. Reasonably priced wines. Great service. Nice heated patio on chilly evening !
First time dining here. Loved everything about it! Staff was extremely attentive and made excellent food/wine recommendations. Food was AMAZING. Perfect place for date night-GREAT ambiance. Can’t wait to go back!
Appetizers and entrees were excellent but dessert was only so-so. Coffee was lukewarm and served with milk instead of cream. Service was very good.
We love this place. The people are very friendly and the food is very good. We have been there several times and have always been pleased with the experience.
Cozy ambience; great service, good food.
Pasta is so good. Many dishes different than the typical Italian place. Service was friendly and prices are good. Love their ambiance.
Excellent restaurant. Nice patio, great food.
Always a good choice for delicious food.
Overall really good not a great wine list though a little lacking in that area. Great atmosphere. One loud drunk woman ruining it for the rest of the patio diners but other than that very good.
This is a wonderful restaurant and the next time we are in San Juan Capistrano will make a point of coming here. Salvatore Is a most gracious host and really knows the meaning of hospitality. The food is delicious, the ambience is terrific and Salvatore makes it even more special.
Nice italian restaurant. Would come back again. Service can be inconsistent and food quality as well.
Great food and amazing service. Can’t wait to go back.
This is a great Italian restaurant. The service is amazing. We enjoy it every time we are there.
You can always count on a wonderful time at Ciao Pasta
Great dinner day after Valentines. The lobster ravioli was excellent and the lamb chops were astounding (and a great value at $32). First time there and will definitely be back.
Always love this little spot in San Juan Capistrano. Always good food.
Wonderful experience for Valentines Day Dinner!
Best pizza in SJC! Love the staff!
Excellent and professional service. Food was good and the ambiance was fairly good.
Love the patio. The food was incredible! We ate there 2 times in one week when on vacation in Orange County. The inside looks beautiful too but I will always choose outside if the weather permits. The staff was perfect. Highly recommend!
Good food, attentive service. Noisy environment. Food took a long time to be served.
One of our favourite places in San Juan. Good for lunch too.
Pasquale and his staff are always great. Food .. amazing and service very good. We’ve been going for over 25 years and it’s always delicious!
Nice restaurant in front of the San Juan Capistrano Mission. Food was delicious great menu selection.
We usually sit on the patio but this time went inside since it was cold out. A bit noisier inside but still a wonderful place to eat. Great food and service.
Great service and food, as always!! Ciao Pasta never disappoints
Great experience, great food, great wines. Outside seating is warm and cozy!
I thought portion sizes were so small for pasta. Not worth 20$ for a tiny bowl of pasta. Hungry when I got home
Also 25$ corkage fee is ridiculous
Will not be back
Our Service was great!
Everything was phenomenal from the second we walked in. Chef came over to every table to ask about the food. Absolutely will be back.
Joseph was awesome as the food was incredible
Wonderful food!!! Great service! A place that will be our go-to for Italian food!!
we're longtime san juan capistrano residents and view ciao pasta as THE best restaurant in the city....
We go here regularly and always love it. Food and service is excellent.
We love Ciao Pasta! The ambiance, the food and the service are all outstanding! We highly recommend Ciao!
Had no problem getting a 6:30 PM same day reservation, and we (party of 3) were seated right on time. However, it was obvious that they were slammed. The service was very slow. We did not actually get our dinners until about 7:40 PM. We had the Ciao Pasta, Salmon and Halibut entrees respectively and all were excellent. Like this place and would recommend it. Hopefully the slow service was just an anomaly.
Outstanding food, ambiance and staff that like their job. Everyone that works at this place seem to have a good working relationship with each other and look happy to work at this restaurant. The service was excellent!
Loved the food! Enjoyed the wait staff! Would highly recommend this restaurant!
