Ciao Amici's abides by a very simple philosophy: “Mangia Bene,” which means "Eat Well" in Italian. Chefs take this motto to heart, constructing cheesy pizzas and fresh pastas, along with ladling delicate cream and wine sauces ever so gently over meat and fish dishes. A matrix of spotlights casts light on the sizable space, highlighting tables as diners share slices and sip selections from the more than 20 wines offered on the wine list, which has earned a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. After climbing up the red tapestries that hang from the high, peach ceilings, you can question servers about throwing a gala in the banquet facility.
