Casual atmosphere in a historic building or on the patio. Lots of choices - spectacular salads, perfectly prepared breakfast, lunch and dinners. Deliciously fresh salads, pasta, meat or fish meals to die for. And a nice bar!

The food was overpriced and vvery average. The calamari was greasy. Pasta a bit too sweet. Not true Italian fare.

Step back into Gold Rush days in this Main Street restaurant, without sacrificing on 21st century wholesome cuisine. The Maltese pastas are very tasty; good continental dishes. The bar adjoining the restaurant is a historic hangout too. Only problem is parking in Grass Valley center - best shot is public parking off Neal/ Church St. Worth the hassle for a... More

We ate here on our host's recommendation. The menu is quite diverse and includes a number of small plates. We had the calamari steak, which was perfectly cooked and delicious, Jerry's olives -- at least 6 different kinds, yum! and Caesar salad (had to order the anchovies to put on it). The wine list is also diverse. Too bad the... More

Since 1956 we have supported our local agricultural industry and at present day, are the only restaurant that offers free corkage on any bottle brought in from any one of our incredible local wineries.

Both the restaurant and bar service good food and drinks with good service, and not much of a wait. The prices are reasonable.

I really love the Pasta Shells Fromaggio! It's a great quality test for Italian restaurants (Lasagna is a great standard test also) since it's pretty basic and gives you a true sense of how important the quality of their ingredients are to them. Anyway, their menu is mostly traditional Italian & Mediterranean. They have so many delicious dishes to choose... More

We had dinner one night which was really good. Waiter was very nice and well informed. Came back to have drinks at the bar side twice after and had snacks from the bar menu which were also very good. Nice people both working there and just hanging out.

My husband and I enjoyed the great service and good food. I especacially liked the grilled balsamic vegetables on a skewer. Sat in a window, music was nice, not to loud, we could visit with each other and take our time. We did dine on a Sunday evening so it was a bit quieter.

Since 1983, we have shared recipes from the Cirino Family Kitchen, to locals and visitors alike, beginning in Nevada City and expanding our operation to Grass Valley in 2003. We have been honored with being voted more "Best Of" awards than any other business in Nevada County. We invite you to come in and experience the flavors of the Cirino Family Table and enjoy the tradition we are proud to share...We might even "change your life" with a sample of our signature Cirino Bloody.
