Good Food. Great Friends. Ruff Life. Ciao Hound Italian Kitchen & Bar pairs authentic Tuscan flavors with fresh Keys-sourced ingredients and Rat Pack-era tunes. Open for dinner daily, Ciao Hound's menu highlights include Sweet Pan-Seared Florida Shrimp with Creamy Polenta, Grilled Mahi-Mahi Puttanesca and Garlic-Rosemary Basted Tuscan Sirloin Steak.
Fun and family-friendly but with plenty of style for romantic dinners and date nights, Ciao Hound features a full bar serving wines by the glass and bottle, local and imported beers, classic mixed drinks and nearly a dozen Italian-inspired cocktails, including the Limoncello Sunrise and Sangria of the Day. The Loaded Bloody Mary is a knockout, served with prosciutto-wrapped shrimp and a chicken wing.
The Keys, and Islamorada in particular, give meaning to, “a change of pace.” Alot in the Keys is served with a grain of salt, margaritas included. Travelers seek more than the destination of the Keys, they yearn for the lifestyle. The locals are welcoming, the accommodations unpretentious, the outdoor activities abundant and the food is fresh and of a wide variety.
We continue this way of life with Italian dishes served in a laid-back and welcoming atmosphere. Dogs are preferred, people are welcome and comfort food is the menu. We’ve taken traditional Italian dining and turned it on it’s head. What can we say, it’s the Keys way.
Whether you’re a local, a guest at the Postcard Inn, or passing through on your adventures to southern-most tip, Ciao Hound’s doors are open to all.
Ciao Hound continues the local tradition of great food served with a change of pace. We’re Ciao Hound. People friendly, Italian food.
Our mission is to provide an Italian dining experience in the authentic, laid-back Florida Keys style.
