Located a stone’s throw from the port in Scarborough, CIAO CAFE offers up pasta entrees, sandwiches, salads and fresh bread.
CIAO’s food is a good-value (and a tasty break from local Creole-style food).
For us, the authentic gelato is the star here, housemade in flavours like intense Blueberry (made with fresh blueberries), decadent Tiramisu, and a boozy Wine & Raisin. The gelato is available in cups, cones or packed in larger sizes to take home. Trust us, you’ll feel like a kid in a candy store with all the colourful gelato flavours (samples are available).
