  • "My wife and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary and we wanted to try a new place for a change. We really enjoyed our meal and the service was very good. The wait staff was very attentive, We will be back in the future"

  • "A great, fun place to eat. It's vibrant and the service is very attentive, except when they say can make any type of cocktail, but can't come up with a coconut martini. Excellent selction of foods with the right presentation. Disappointed with dessert selection. Pancotta was a tasteless blob that was only saved when we asked for mixed fruit with it. For all the interesting descriptions of their selections: why is mundane "chocloate cake" thrown in. We love chocolate, but this chocolate cake could have been something special, or an out of the box cake. Because of the lame description, we skipped it."

  • "Everything about the place was just alright. I must say the bartender at the front sucked, made me wait like I was invisible. Then served someone he recognized who showed up 5 minutes after me. The guy eating at the bar said he is usually great but was in a bad mood? Really let me pay fifteen bucks and tip him for his efforts. We sat way in the back which is like being sent to the basement."

  • "We had a lovely dinner Friday evening, though were disappointed that despite a reservation made 2 weeks in advance, we had to wait close to 45 minutes for an outdoor table. Waiting at the bar proved to be expensive. With that said, there were 4 of us and we were served efficiently. The food was very good. I would definitely recommend Cipollini to friends and would go back."

  • "Since the renovation the kitchen seems to have stepped up it's game. The service is always very efficient & professional"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The food and service were excellent but the restaurant was very loud - so much that we had to yell to hear each other across the table. The crowd was pretentious- ladies all wearing their tightest dresses, highest heels and fresh Botox (literally)."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "GREAT MENU, GENEROUS PORTIONS, VERY ATTENTIVE SERVER STAFF, NEVER RUSHED OR PUSHY. EATEN HERE SEVERAL TIMES AND NEVER ORDERED THE SAME DISH TWICE. i WOULD SUGGEST SHARING WITH THE RIGHT PERSON WHO MAY BE A LITTLE ADVENTUROUS. FOR EXAMPLE. THE GRILLED OCTOPUS WAS DELICIOUS COOKED PERFECT;Y."

  • "You can always count on Cipollini's for real good food and service. The Poll brothers donut the right way."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Not an epicurean event for sure, but for a quick, fix for a meal, pizza or to be part if a "scene" it works just fine. There was a little white yapping dog at the table near ours and we found that to be just over to top ANNOYING. Dining al fresco or not, a barking 4 legged anything should never have been tolerated. Glad that we were on our way out or I'd have definitely been barking back at the management. This is a dependable watering hole. Great pizzas and great seafood salad."

  • "The 2 maître'd was too busy socializing with a guest than to seat us. I cleared my throat and one looked in my direction and finally seated us. Didn't even apologize for letting the line build up while his back was turned. Service is hit/miss. There have been good times and others where it left more to be desired. I feel that if the 'staff' doesn't provide the same level of service to everyone - if they know you, then you be given importance. Food is great - too bad the service has such significant room for improvement. When walking out of the restaurant, the maître'd looked but couldn't even muster a "hope you enjoyed everything""

  • "Food was average. Too loud. Could barely hear each other across the table."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Despite not being full the restaurant was very noisy - this was my second vsit there, I had the chicken scarpiello. a dish that I cooked for "Look Who's Cooking" featured in Newsday. I only ate about 1/3rd becase it was not well prepared. I would not return nor recommend this restaurant. "

  • "This past Saturday night, we arrived at 8:50pm for a 9pm reservation. Checked in with the Host (named Hector) who said that table was not ready (as it was crowded) and to go have a drink at the bar. Host took my name, but didn't really check us into the computer or any other system they may use. We go to the bar to have a drink and noticed that the only thing the Host was really doing was hugging and kissing people he apparently knew, sitting others as they walked in, and not paying attention to us who had a reservation. By 9:30pm, we are still at bar, and Hector the Host kept ignoring us. I noticed plenty of open tables, so I decided to say something to the other host (taller gentleman), who sat us immediately. Overall, food was good"

  • "LUNCH WITH MY HUSBAND-LOVED IT.THE OUTDOOR SEATING WAS GREAT AND YOU COULD SEE THE PEOPLE SHOPPING AND PASSING BY"
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Service was good except one member in our group ordered a dish and wasn't as described in the specials, when waiter was told he had an attitude and argued that it was what they ordered. Wait staff can be a bit obnoxious here."

  • "Food was delicious and service was impeccable! Definitely a fun place for more than 2"

  • "Can't enjoy bc it's always over packed and extremely loud, so busy the waiter barely asked how we were doing....didn't even get the chance to order a second drink. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Reopened after a 6 week make over. I don't see all the fuss, but okay there are now 6... count them, six bathrooms and room for 3 more tables. Really? Same menu, so lot's to please many different poalets. Very friendly, attentive staff. Loud and crazy noisy so don't plan on doing any talking. Great bread and very generous wine pours. All in, I like Cipollinis!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "The restaurant just re-opened following the addtion of more space for addtional tables and restrooms which were long overdue. Prior to the changes they only had 2 restrooms in a 150-seat restaurant which was ridiculous. The food and service are great but the noise when busy is deafening. The waiter had to shout to be heard over the loud music and patrons' voices to describe the night's specials. It's a great spot but avoid busy times if you want to have a conversation with anyone sitting at your table."

  • "How often can we say this is one of our favorite restaurants? Terrific attention to detail as always. Try the octopus salad."

  • "We have been to this Cipollini a few times and each time the food gets better. We just recently dined there to celebrate my son's 9th birthday. Even though it was Christmas Eve and the place was packed the food was impeccable and the service was amazing. I don't have a single bad thing to say about this place. It is a real gem."
