The moment you set foot into the doors of Ciao Italia, you immediately feel like you’ve walked into Italy! The melodious Italian tarantella music, Italian waiters shouting across the room, patrons tapping their feet to the music, checkered table cloth, terracotta walls, aroma of garlic, Italian knick knacks on the walls are all part of the charm in this cosy home-style restaurant.
Ciao Italia, South Perth opened in August 1999 by a young Italian chef, Spartaco Rotella. It started as an Italian takeaway with seating for 20 patrons. The reputation of its mouth watering pastas and woodfired pizzas spread quickly and this created the need for more seating. In 2009 Ciao Italia took over the shop next door and now comfortably seats 90 patrons. After 16 amazing years, Ciao Italia opened its second branch in the lush neighborhood of Nedlands.
Ciao Italia is passionate about two things, the food we serve and giving our patrons a truly authentic Italian experience! In that we mean, stepping into Italy without having to leave the country!
