This local establishment isn't merely Italian goodies, which yes, includes pasta, but they're also quite the favorite for pizza. <p>The menu is split between Jamaican specialties like beef and fish dishes, and gourmet Italian fare.

Ciao Jamaica is a viable option for guests thinking about visiting this part of Jamaica. From the restaurant, Negril is a little more than a mile (approximately two kilometers) to the east. Though they're broadly known for Italian food, this local spot is particularly known for its pasta and pizza. <p>While Ciao Jamaica is at its heart an Italian restaurant, many of the dishes have a little twist that bring home the Jamaican feel. Pastas, chicken, steak, and seafood are all on the menu, as are calzones and pizza. For something truly unique, order the Ackee and Saltfish pizza, the Chicken Cordon Caribbean Bleu, the Reggae Lasagna, or the Mango and Cucumber Salad. On top of all of this, their top selling items are Jerk Chicken Alfredo, West Indian Seafood Linguine, Scotch Bonnet Snapper, Lobster Diablo, and Garlic Shrimp Pizza.</p> <p>Wash your meal down with a specialty cocktail, such as the Negril State of Mind. Fine wines, beers, and your favorite mixed drinks are available as well.</p>
