Ciao’s Italian Restaurant opened its doors to customers Thursday just months after its new owner took over the building’s lease. The restaurant at 217 S. Duff Ave., is Italian-themed with standard Italian chicken, seafood and pasta dishes and seats about 100 customers.

Owner Tony Avdiu said all the items are made from scratch and bread is baked early every day. Most entrees will cost diners about $12 or $13 per person at dinner, he said.
