Ciao If I am making a phone call, do you start off the conversation with Ciao? and If i wanted to make a reservation at a restaurante can I say Vorrei prenotare una tavola per due? and if I wanted it for tomorrow at eight... a domani l'otto? grazie Steve

Ciao Steve, "Ciao" is the friendly form for "hello". if you need to make a phone call to book a table at the restaurant, you will need to use the formal (polite) form as you don't know the person you are speaking to. Therefore the correct sentence will be ; "Buongiorno (or buonasera), vorrei prenotare una tavola per due per le otto". I hope this helps. :)
