It is with bittersweet feelings that we are announcing the closing of Ciao Rustic Italian on New Years Eve of 2013.
New paths and opportunities have opened themselves up to us and we feel this is the time to begin a new chapter in our lives.
We will certainly miss the many, many friends and celebrations that have made Ciao so very special over the last nearly 12 years. Thank you all for making this such a special little place. Each friend will always be loved and each celebration, big or small, will never be forgotten.
After our closing on New Years Eve, we will be hosting a once monthly evening of great food and live, local music. Live music will always be a mainstay no matter what form our next venture takes. Information for the dates and specifics of these events will be found on our website and Facebook page as well as 91.7 KAXE public radio, These events will continue through April. At that time we will close the restaurant to focus our energies on our new ideas and concept for the space!! Stay tuned for details and the opening of Sunny Side Creations in the spring/early summer of 2014!!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
