About Us

    CIAO is a chef owned, casual restaurant with elevated offerings. We feature a constantly changing menu of small plates with big flavors from near and far, brought to the table as they are ready, and made to be shared. Located on the quiet end of cottage Street, we have a full bar, eclectic wine list, Maine beer, specialty cocktails, and house-made desserts. Beloved by locals, CIAO will have you at “hello.”
