It is not a phrase. It is a word and it means "hello" and "goodbye" in Italian.

The word ciao derives from the phrase s-ciào vostro (Lit: "I am your slave") in the Venetian language[1], which passed into Italian and subsequently into other languages around the world.

Visit the Wikipedia article on ciao for more information, including versions of the greeting in other world languages.
