About Us

Lemme tell you a little story...

The History

The history of Ciao Down isn’t as exciting as one might think. Honestly, to tell you the truth there isn’t very much to it at all. Here's a quick run down with some embarrassing old photos to keep you busy...

We have been in the restaurant business since 1967 when our family opened a Pizzeria (Mario’s Flying Pizza) with friend and business partner Mario Bonaccorso. It was located right here in Galveston, Texas and is now named Mario’s Ristorante. Find out more about Galveston’s oldest Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria here! Ok… enough with the shameless plug. Let’s hear more about why you're here...

In 2014 we were throwing around the idea of offering hamburgers to our customers at the pizzeria but we didn’t want to inflate our menu with an extra page full of burgers, not to mention the added stress on our already busy kitchen. So, the only obvious solution was to say, what the heck, let’s open a burger joint. So, here we are, established in 2015 serving the best burgers we can, tasty cheese-steaks, ice cold beer, wine and cocktails, some delicious craft sodas and all in a comfortable, casual environment.

See, I told you it wasn’t exciting didn’t I?
