Ciao Italian Food Artistry™

When Ciao opened its doors in 2010, it quickly became Whidbey Island’s most beloved Italian restaurant. Our offerings have grown over the years, but one thing remains constant: our dedication to quality, authenticity, and our guests.

Every dish is prepared with traditional Italian techniques, authentic ingredients, and locally sourced produce. Start your day with brunch and bellinis, or enjoy wood-fired pizza, exquisite deli sandwiches, fresh pasta, and more! Available for indoor dining, carryout, and local delivery.

Indoor Dining Is Now Open!

We are thrilled to be able to return to offering indoor dining options for our guests. The last two years have been hard on everyone, especially small business and the restaurant industry. We have made it through thanks to our loyal customers, our taste for excellent Italian food, and our supportive Whidbey Island community.


The store and restaurant will be open from 11-8 and our current menu can be ordered to go, enjoyed in our restaurant or in our new heated outdoor space.

Full menu is available 12-7pm.

Family Dining

Choose any of your Ciao favorites from our menu or order one of our budget-friendly family-style dinners. Our family dinners start with fresh-baked ciabatta and your choice of soup or salad. For the main course, enjoy one of our signature pasta dishes: Bucatini with Meatballs and Sausage Tomato Sauce, Vegetarian or Beef Lasagna, Eggplant Parmesan, or Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken and Mushrooms. Reservations are highly recommended.

Fine Dining

Our new fine dining experience features a rotating menu of unique and delicious meals from different regions in Italy every weekend. This week, we’re featuring a five-course meal inspired by the Fruli-Venezia region. Choose from one of four unique entrees and enjoy a complimentary glass of Prosecco for $50 per person. To complement the chef’s specialties, we’ll also feature a curated flight of organic wines for $15. Reservations are required.
