Ate here while vacationing in Siesta Key. Large selection of delicious gelato flavors.. Nice little shop, friendly staff, seating indoor and out, very clean. The gelato was amazing.... I highly recommend and would eat here again.

While in Siesta Key for the first time, we (family of 4)
tried the various gelato & ice cream parlors located along the downtown main street. Hands down our favorite was Ciao Gelato. The flavors rotate so that you’re presented with new flavors every day. I know this because we had gelato there nearly every day of our week long visit.
The butter pecan was creamy & had abundant nuts. We also tried key lime, mango, raspberry white chocolate, butterfinger, coffee, & peanut butter. A nice young lady there plied us with many samples before we made the final difficult selection. The gentleman (owner?) who waited on us was less welcoming & didn’t offer a young family who wandered in asking about ice cream any samples. Many people are unfamiliar with gelato & it was a missed opportunity because I’m certain they would have become customers. Signage could be more eye catching. Punch cards were a nice touch. Although the ice cream parlor a few steps away was very good (& very crowded each evening), the gelato at Ciao’s was outstanding.

Amazing flavors and offerings. Don't stress yourself out in trying to pick one flavor, try at least 2. We loved the Gelato and Sorbet so much, we returned the next day. Must try the Lemon and Strawberry (no extra sugar) Sorbets and for Gelato, we suggest anything Chocolate + Salted Caramel. Definitely will refer and recommend to others and will return, next time we are in town.

Great Gelato with a wide variety of options! I’ve been to Ciao Gelato three out of four days because it is so good! I’ve enjoyed all six flavors I’ve tried, and am excited to try more tomorrow!

Better than Big Olaf’s. Super yummy gelato and awesome flavors. And the punchcard lets you get a nice discount :)
