I haven't been to Ciao in a long time and was disappointed last night. I had the cotoletta parmigiana with vegetables and it was well below the standard of anything I have had there before. Over cooked and under seasoned vegetables ruined the entire meal. If you go there stick to the pizza.
Living locally to this restaurant, I eat ciao italia quite often. The food is very good, however I've defiantly had better in Perth. Its the domino effect, there isn't lots of tables so there is always massive amounts of people waiting to get in, people drive past and see this and think the food is fantastic and then will wait out the front for the next person to drive past and do the same thing.
Best thing about ciao though, is you can get it take away and go and eat it on the south perth foreshore with the city lights.
