Experience the authentic taste of Southern Italy while dining in view of beautiful Mission San Juan Capistrano at Ciao Pasta Trattoria. Here surrounded by old-world murals in soft mustard yellows and terra cotta, high wood beamed ceilings and casual elegance you will enjoy excellence in Italian Cuisine.

Ciao Pasta is owned by Chef Pasquale Manta who trained in his native Southern Italy at the age of 20. Arriving in California when he was 25, Pasquale worked at Puccini Restaurant in Tustin where he honed his skills under the inspiration of Chef "Franco". Pasquale, a warm and expressive man who speaks beautiful Italian opened Ciao Pasta in 1995 and it has become a favorite with residents and visitors alike.

Here while enjoying selections of Antipasti, incredible authentic pasta creations, meat and fish dishes, Foccaccia Sandwiches and delectable desserts, patrons senses are serenaded by the aroma of garlic and Italian Herbs while transported to another place through murals of Tuscany.

You may wish to dine outdoors in the spacious patio around the soothing fountain. The large full bar also seats guests and features two televisions for sporting events.

The wine list features Italian and domestic wines by the glass or by the bottle.


Ciao Pasta Trattoria is the place for a romantic evening or to meet with friends and share the joy of great food, lively conversation and the warmth of Italian Hospitality!
