Roaming around Arab Street is always an exciting adventure that builds up our appetite, so when we chanced upon the homely Ciao@ Italian Risto-Bar we knew we were in for a real treat!
Helmed by Executive Chef and owner Domenico Cicconi, Ciao@ Italian Risto-Bar is just the place to go when you’re looking for authentic Italian dishes without the hefty price tag. Serving up traditional dishes like the Bufaline (mozzarella served along Italian cherry tomatoes) and Ravioli di Ricotta (handmade pasta stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese served in a fresh tomato sauce), along with some not so traditional dishes like their Cotechino PizzaWich loaded with special Italian sausage – Ciao@ is one of those places you could just sit back, take in the cozy vibe, and share laughs with friends.
Apart from the mouth-watering eats, they’ve also got a fully stocked bar with wines from over 21 regions and a dessert menu with one heck of a tiramisu. So whether you’re stuffed from the hefty mains or just attempting to stay away from desserts – we suggest you try it. It’s one dessert you don’t want to miss out on! (Jan 2016)
