Visited here as a "Girls Night Out" with my 3 friends on a Friday night. It was the perfect late night restaurant/cafe for a casual lime with friends. Service was on point! Waitress was quite friendly and well at the time we were the only ones there, so we enjoyed ourselves even more. But other than that, we had one... More

I ventured here last Thursday evening. It was the sole bright spot in that part of Scarborough at that time of day. I was expecting an ice-cream parlour but when I entered, there was quite a lively bar atmosphere. I was a bit apprehensive about taking my 10 year old daughter in, but it turned out fine. We got our... More

We went there as a group and the place is too small to accommodate many people. They tried to make us sit together but the tables were shaking and the plates were paper squares. The pizza was worse than the one I make, but the gelato was very good according to the children.

Thank you racytraveller for your review and we are glad that your children enjoy our gelato. We look at the reviews to improve ourself in order to give the best. Unfortunately we don't recall your group or any other group with such complaints. It is always strongly recommended to book in advance for a group over 4 people to avoid... More

Very thick and creamy ice cream. Also very cheap for gelato! It has a nice positive ambiance, which I enjoyed.

Years later, Ciao cafe retains its value and quality. The cafe is simple and no frills in decor, but fits the bill for simple sandwiches, desserts and coffee. Staff is friendly and consistent. Hausbrandt coffee is served and you must try an alfagato with a shot of this espresso and the home made gelato. Gelato is a refreshing find in... More

We had morning coffee here one morning and the lady was very good. We came back for dinner one evening and there were 3 couples eating, the service was poor, the food was ok. At the end we gave up on getting desert, coffee or any more to drink as the staff vanished, we ended up going up to collect... More

My wife and I had pizza and gelato here, the pizza was so good we went to dinner two nights in a row, the gelato is very good, the pizza is excellent and very affordable (by Trinidad and Tobago overly expensive standards) with a generous amount of topping, the place is small so you may have a little wait, they...

This ice cream parlour has a lovely selection of unusual flavours of ice cream and is well worth a visit.

Went to ciao's restaurant previously but was so full I didn't get to try the ice-cream! When my parents and brother came out I had to take them there. Really nice atmosphere and well priced. The ice cream is one of the best on the island. I had Nutella but there was all sorts of flavours from wine and raisin... More
