    Carefully crafted Northern Italian fare cooked by a very serious chef. Lunch is a great value.

    The only negative is they offer you water & charge you for it no matter wether you have gas or no gas!

    Sit by the fireplace and don't miss the raviolo in brown butter sauce

    The homemade pastas are the specialty here like a raviolo filled with stracchino, parmigiano, and burrata, bathed in a rosemary-brown butter sauce. For dessert try Panna cotta Read more

    Kind of corporate but pasta is pretty pleasing. Try the spicy cortecce with baby octopus and pancetta ($24). Read more

    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.

    Reserve a table in the main dining area, outfitted with a romantic chandelier and a bright fireplace that’s used to warm focacce, ciabatte and pizzas before they’re served. Read more

    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.

    Tasting menu no longer being offered as of December. Get the Veal meatballs. They are amazingly delicious.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The apps were amazing and the egg dishes were awful (poached eggs cooked thru and frittata wasn't hot and had soggy vegetables)

    Can you smell that woodsmoke, from the fireplace? Divine. (You’ll smell it tomorrow in your hair.) Now have some wine and tortellini, pork. Read more

    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.

    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.)
