Ciao Bella's self-titled album strikes a lovely balance between 60s pop touches and the semi-futuristic pop the March label usually deals in — portions of the record do pretty much the same thing the Olivia Tremor Control's Dusk at Cubist Castle do ("How Low"), but the chirpy collages and Beatlesque harmonies of this aesthetic are tempered by big guitar sounds and modern organ usage that give Ciao Bella an entirely different tone.
This is one of my favorite albums and it breaks my heart that it's the only one of its kind. It's amazingly confident power-pop, like Big Star but with a dreamboat sunkissed California vibe. The tracks that grabbed me were "How Low" and "Details from the Deep End," but this is start-to-finish perfection.

True Cult Pop Masterpiece
Like the other two reviewers suggest, this is an indie-pop masterpiece, easily one of the best power pop albums of the '90s, and one of my own personal favorite albums of all time. Shame these guys didn't go on to do more like this...
