I was hanging out with a friend, and we were hungry, after discussing where to go for far too long, I drove to Ciao Italia. I had been to this location when it had a different name and owner, it was time for a visit to this new restaurant.
There are two sections to Ciao Italia. When you first walk in, you are in a take out area. To the left is a formal, classy looking dining room. It took a couple of minutes for someone to come out and seat us, but we were there a bit before the typical dinner rush, so I would guess they didn't expect people for sit down service yet.
I ordered the chicken alfredo and my friend ordered the saltimbocca di pollo. We also shared a side of calamari. The calamari was pretty good. It was cooked well, and seasoned, but could have used additional seasoning. My chicken alfredo was amazing - the fettuccini was homemade, a nice touch. The chicken was breaded, which was a little strange, but it worked with the dish and kept the chicken incredibly moist. The alfredo sauce was plentiful and was creamy and amazing. I loved this dish. It did have onions in it which I'm not a huge fan of, but you didn't taste them, it just made for a strange texture once in a while. My friend's saltimbocca was also delicious, we had no complaints about this dish. Serving sizes were on the larger side, so it also served as a good lunch for me the next day.
The servers seemed understaffed for the bulk of the time we were there, but our service wasn't adversly affected too much by it. Ciao Italia is close to my home, had great food and reasonable prices. I will definitely be back - 4 forks.
