Ciao Italia is one of the most popular Italian Restaurants in Perth. It is always crowded, even on a weekday! However, it is definitely worth the wait!
So we headed down to Ciao one Tuesday because we were craving for good Italian food and after the long wait, we finally sat down and ordered our usuals.
The garlic bread. It's delicious! Soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. One of the things we like most about it is the generous amount of garlic spread on the bread.
Chilli Mussels!!! The mere thought of it makes us salivate! We were both not big fans of mussels until after eating the chilli mussels in Perth. The mussels were big, fresh, and the combination of the tomato based sauce with chilli is awesome! Yums! (Oh yes! Remember to dip your garlic bread into the chilli mussel sauce!)
Ciao Italia's signature dish-The Ciao Italia! Haha.
This pasta dish is our personal favourite! Creamy fettuccine with sun-dried tomatos and chicken strips.
The other pasta dish that we ordered was also another creamy dish-Carbonara with bacon!
It was also really good!
Even though the meal was great, most of us were really looking forward to dessert! That's because the Tiramisu from Ciao is to die for! As usual, it didn't disappoint!!!
Well, this is a not-so-nice photo of the kitchen, but that's the only one we have.

It was wonderful!
The decor, music and the way the tables and chairs were placed made us feel like we were in Italy. The only downside is that it is too cramped
LOVE the service at Ciao! The waiters and waitresses are so friendly! Armed with mega-watt smiles on their faces, they are always happy to help and engage in small talk.
2 thumbs up! There's a reason why it is always crowded.
