Ciao Italia - Squid Ink Pasta

Ciao Italia – 31 Jan 2013

When I last visited some 3 years ago, the food was fantastic. This time around, nothing has changed. I really enjoyed all the dishes I ate, the pizza, tortellini, the rigatoni, the black squid ink pasta, and the delicious desserts. The prices may look a bit expensive but the servings are large. The quality of food is excellent and well worth the money. The venue may be a little cramped but the whole feel, buzz, business, and decor adds to the theatre. The Italian waitstaff are attentive and friendly and provide great service. The food is very quick out of the kitchen and the popularity of the restaurant is evident with a full house in no time. I really enjoyed the food here and would definitely recommend a visit.

Pizza is a universal favourite and this was the third wood fired pizza I’ve tried. Their pizzas were quite tasty but I preferred the offerings at Ciao Italia instead, especially when comparing price. While the pizzas had a lovely wood fired smoked flavour with an adequate cover of toppings, the flavour balance isn’t quite right between all three varieties that I tried. They don’t just do wood fired pizzas so check out their other offerings at their website.
