“Mangiare!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

The food, music, atmosphere, friendly and attentive service all add up to a great dining experience. The only negative is that it's not in NY; but, it was still worth the drive.

“Better than Maggiano's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant. The food and service are better than Maggiano's and most any Italian restaurant I have visited. It feels like you are a guest of a large Italian family. They give you a lot of food, so I was satisfied with appetizers and salad, but went ahead and ate my entree. People at our table shared food so we could get a feel for the various foods served. My entree, Tilapia, was average. It would have been better without any breading. The baked dishes were probably the favorite amongst our group. The Cannoli for dessert was the best I have had, and I have had it in Rome.

“Great Pizza, Nice People”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

I ordered several pizzas to be delivered for a corporate event. The woman who took my number was very courteous. I was impressed with the choice of creative pizzas. The pizza was excellent, as well as the salads.

“awesome seafood at an italian restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

Visited Ciros with some friends and at the servers recommendation, I tried the Zuppa De Pesce with white wine sauce. The seafood was fresh, tender and delicious! The service was excellent, and she gave a WONDERFUL red wine blend recommendation, very knowledgeable. The atmosphere was great. Will definitely be back, this place is an Italian gem!

“They do great eggplant and very good Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

Real Italians eat here. We tried the veal piccata and eggplant parmesan. Their sauces are good but the eggplant was fantastic. They use very good olive oil, and a decent balsamic vinegar. The salads are fresh, but not outstanding. Very good service that was pretty honest about what to try or not try.
