Lunch indoors. Poor lighting and uncomfortable chairs. Tried their signature half & half aperitif; tepid & tasteless. Baguette bread fresh & crusty, Had chicken Caesar salad--big plate; seemed fresh. Service spotty. Would not want to eat here if it was busy.

We had been recommended to visit Le Cirio as by friends ( as well as our guidebook ) as somewhere on the 'art nouveau' trail. A lovely authentic, unspoiled place with generations of nicotine stains on the walls. Waiting staff were pleasant and friendly, even...More
