Dine in an intimate and elegant atmosphere.
The finest gourmet Italian cuisine; traditional classics and "La Nuova Cucina" are creatively prepared by chef/owner Gianfranco Loreti, in Naples since 1987. Appetizers feature imported Italian mozzarella di Bufala Caprese, Calamari that is so unique and delicious (not like any you have had before) and the best Caeser salad. Entrees include handmade pastas like our fabulous Fettuccine Ciao (lobster and asparagus in light cream sauce), Osso Buco that falls off the bone with Saffron Risotto, outstanding Veal Chop Paillard and real Dover Sole filleted table side. Our luscious desserts: tirami su, panna cotta, creme brulee, and chocolate mousse cake are chef made and we are the only restaurant to make a fresh warm zabaglione.
Chef Gianfranco's specials incorporate fresh seasonal ingredients such as zucchini blossoms in summer, white truffles in the fall, blood oranges and chestnuts in winter and morel mushrooms and artichokes in the spring.
Our extensive wine list features the best vintages of Italian, French and California wines, also ports and dessert wines.
We have available private dining rooms that accomodate from eight to thirty persons.
Gift certificates are available in any amount and we can mail them to you or directly to the recipient.
Ristorante Ciao is located in downtown Naples, one block north of Fifth Avenue South in the first block west of Tamiami Trail (US 41).
"Keeping a restaurant running for 17 years in ever changing Naples is a major accomplishment. Keeping the same chef/sommelier/owner since "Day One" is even more amazing. But Ristorante Ciao has done just that, and a recent visit reminded me of the secret of its success: fine food, carefully prepared with top quality ingredients will never go out of style. The bottom line "Absolutely Phenomenal".
