Ciano is where lovers share antipasti by candlelight. Rustic and refined, chef Shea Gallante’s Italian restaurant looks like a grand Tuscan villa. Ask to be seated by the wood-burning fireplace.
Reasons to go: an open hearth in the middle of the rustic dining room serving up fresh-baked, rosemary-infused bread nightly. (And ravioli stuffed with red wine-braised veal breast.)
Try the Pappardelle with Duck Bolognese
The Veal Meatballs should be on everyone's to-do list
Carefully crafted Northern Italian fare cooked by a very serious chef. Lunch is a great value.
Tasting menu no longer being offered as of December. Get the Veal meatballs. They are amazingly delicious.
Get the meatballs no matter what!
The veal meatballs are incredible! As is the chicken for two & everything else on the menu.
Veal. Meatballs. Now. Do it.
Veal meatballs and truffle gnocci. Amazing service and food.
Good lunch menu
Great atmosphere and amazing pasta!
The only negative is they offer you water & charge you for it no matter wether you have gas or no gas!
Very reminiscent of Italy. Great food & atmosphere.
Executive Chef & Co-Owner Shea Gallante is a CIA alumnus.
Sit by the fireplace and don't miss the raviolo in brown butter sauce
Ask about getting half bottles from the wine list, such a great idea
Amazing lunch deal. $20.12 for 3 beautiful and delicious courses!
The upstairs is a nice intimate hideaway in which to enjoy Pappardelle with Duck Bolognese and Giannone Chicken. A bit on the pricey side of the scale.
Rainbow Beets with Whipped Robiola, Wild Watercress and 12yr-Aged Balsamic
Need to try the raviolo.
Eater recommends the Raviolo.
Have the wine specialist give you recommendations, they're wizards of wine. The bay scallops and siamese ravioli were highlights.
The hostesses is extremely rude and someone may think twice about coming in.
A date night? Dim lights, cozy, very intimate...
The dinner and wine (we did a 4 course tasting menu) were delicious. The Ceretto Barolo "Brunate" 1979 had leathery, earthy tones and a lot of complexity, while being surprisingly light.
Along with their divine pastas, Ciano's duck breast is one of the best I've ever had (and I LOVE duck). Lovely space to boot.
A timely tip, as this is a restaurant made for Autumn. Come for the duck bolognese stay for the atmosphere: an open hearth, perfect flatware, communal bottle-splitting of an ever-changing wine list.
Chicken liver crostini. I'm still dreaming about it!
This Italian eatery serves its soft-shell crabs with peekytoe crab stuffing alongside a grapefruit tomato salad ($19) all month.

Some of the most interesting seasonal dishes are on the $115 tasting menu. Don't worry - you can order all of them a la carte.
You have the option to order a la carte from the prix fixe Market Menu. Go for the Cortecce Pasta. For an extra romantic seat, ask for a corner table upstairs near the windows.
The Polenta is INSANE!!!!!
Ask for Robert! He gives great service!
Great wine options plus you can order a half bottle (letting you mix and match for dinner)
The apps were amazing and the egg dishes were awful (poached eggs cooked thru and frittata wasn't hot and had soggy vegetables)
Give your self 2x the time and pop a patience pill 'cuz the house is out of order. Tons of problems. Food was good.
Sit by the fireplace and order the 4 course tasting menu. Mancini with an order of the artichoke salad will put a smile on your face. Ask for what kind of open wine bottles they have floating.
Try the Sea Scallops with Brussels Sprouts
