Ciao Baby in Manchester, NH

I heard the place was opened. Has anyone gone to eat there? I peered through the window after they Bought Baldwin's. The interior looked tacky. Leppard print booths??!!

A group of people I know went to dine there and were very disappointed. Each bottle of wine ordered - they were told was sold out. They were all very frustrated. None were impressed by the food at all.

I checked out the website today and found nothing really. Most of the images are from istock images - LOL

Like I said I would like to hear of other people's experiance at Ciao Baby.

    1. I heard the food was really good actually. I hope it does not close.

        Went in for apps and drinks to check it out. The calamari was your typical light fry with fra diavlo, but it was very good. Very few people in the place, yet I felt like I was imposing on them. Should be a bit more friendly.

          They are brand new, give them a chance.

            If a place is new and the room is busy, I expect the staff are ironing out wrinkles in service and the kitchen and cut the place a break. Sounds like they weren't busy, though, so all the more reason to expect better than "I felt like I was imposing" vibe.

          Funny, because they're featured in this month's New Hampshire magazine as one of NH's "hot" new restaurants.

        2. thats too bad. It had a rough start but was shaping up to be a great restaurant- what manchester certainly needs more of. I had been there 3 times and each time I saw great improvement.

            I just read in the hippo that they were closed for a little bit but are now having a grand reopening, so looks like they'll be back.

              GREAT, I will make reservations. I am actually dying to see how they changed.
