- Cirellasluv2eatDined on 7/12/2014Dinner was completely yummy. We ordered a special and one standard menu item. We missed the early bird special which ends at 6pm and is a real deal @ $40 for dinner for 2 including a bottle of wine. We would go there again in a heartbeat.Special Features:

- Wow !!! What a Zuppa....Linda8165Dined on 7/7/2014Have dined many times at Cirella's (and enjoyed every one).... and have noticed the Zuppa de Pesca being served. Well, we tried it... and it was fantastic. Lobster, scallops, calamari, clams, mussels, fish...over linguini... and with a great sauce. And our server (Dawn) was also fantastic! Another great meal. We'll be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great dinnerVMC2014Dined on 7/2/2014Our 2nd visit to Cirellas was another success. Glad we made reservations, even during off season, as the place got busy and full by the time we got served our dinners. We ordered the calamari, ceasar salad and the cobia special. Portions, even for the small features, was extremely generous. Needless to say, we brought home another meal. Service was excellent. Looking forward to our next visit.Special Features:
- Italian/Sushi CuisineDannyDined on 6/26/2014Unusual pairing of cuisines, both done extremely well. Portion sizes are tremendous, but menu does indicate alternative portion size courses. Server knowledgable,punctual, and attentive. Last tried during winter season in SW Florida, much busier and less satisfied with service(2013). This time came during summer, still nice crowd at 6 time slot, not overwhelming and entire experience was much more enjoyable.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Cirella's BistrolovefoodDined on 6/7/2014From the moment we sat down we had exceptional service. Never had to search out our waitress as she made sure the dining experience was very nice. Even the owner came over and shook our hand, while checking on the service. We ordered two Italian entrees and shared a salad. The food was exceptional from the bread and olive oil to the finish of our entrees. We both loved the salad that had a lot of little treasures hidden in it. (nuts and fruit) We have put this bistro on our places to share a meal again. We went on a Saturday night and the place was busy so call ahead. Dining room was a little crowded and I wish the ambience could have been a little more romantic but I will take good food over ambience everyday. Little hard to find.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Outside Dining Much QuieterBonitaMaryDined on 6/6/2014Inside, the vibe is noisy and happening. Outside is much quieter and the fans or heaters make it quite comfortable except just before sunset in the summertime.Special Features:

- PaulakVIPDined on 6/5/2014I ordered the special Which was Florida Pompano in light wine sauce and it was delicious . My husband had the ravioli's with a bolenese sauce and he loved it. Cirella's is one of our favorite resturants. We make the drive from Naples to Bonita at least once a week. It is worth the drive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always a pleasant dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 5/31/2014I love the choices of Italian and Sushi. The Italian is always good and the Sushi is the best around in my opinion. Being able to secure a reservation on line is a big plus.Special Features:

- Corella'sQueenDined on 5/19/2014Every thing was slightly above average: good!! They tried to accommodate our request for a less noisy table. Enjoyed our meals. Portions were larger than we expected. Split salads were plenty for two as a first course. Waitress was helpful and reasonably timely checking on our table. Good for the prices. Will go back. Didn't go for it this time, but EBS's are good,Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing food, great experienceSWFL2013Dined on 5/19/2014Enjoyed a special ocassion dinner here with family. They had the largest sushi rolls we ever saw; so glad we didn't over order.

- not so greatsearchingforgoodfoodVIPDined on 5/10/2014The food and service were not great. A few pieces of bread that were served were uncooked in the center. The soup and salad were okay...overpriced. The veal picatta was good, The chicken cacciatore was ordered with bone in and came out without the bone. It was a few chicken cutlets that hadn't seen the cacciatore sauce until it was poured over them just before serving. Not great will not bother returning.
- Outstanding EveningBellisimoDined on 5/6/2014We have been enjoying Cirell's for many years and one of the many best things about them is the consistency good food. We haven't found a dish that wasn't perfect and delicious. It is the Cheers of Bonita Springs where everyone is made to feel welcomed. The bar is a great place to sit, meet people and enjoy the good food with good service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always FunnaplesdineDined on 5/6/2014We have been to Cirella's at least 10 times during the past 3 years and while the ambience is just ok ( but done nicely) the Food and Service is the BEST in all of Naples & Bonita Springs! Whenever we have new friends in town this is where we take our guests and they always say: GREAT MEAL! We live in Naples; but always make the trip up 41 to Bonita Springs to dine with you. Always fun @ Cirella's, Tom & Abbe FogartySpecial Features:

- Unpleasantly surprisedOpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 5/3/2014I am not quite sure how this place gets a 4.5 out of 5 stars. We were not impressed. I had the linguini and clams and my wife just had salad because they couldn't seem to make a glutin free version of the grilled egg plant. The server forgot my salad and served my dinner entree when she served my wife's salad. The food was just OK, not great. We sat outside and the table had a considerable lean to it which caused my wife's martini to leak out of one side of the glass when the server was pouring it. The martini ran down the table into my wife's lap. We dine out frequentlu in southwest Florida and always try new places. This one is off our list.
- A friendly place to be.food2enjoyDined on 5/2/2014Food quality, service, and ambiance always consistent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- sailormanDined on 4/25/2014Above average Italian selections, at above average serving sizes and cost. Service was prompt and friendly. Dinner for two special was not selected because of severe limitations on wine selection(red or white that was it). Side salad seemed to be overly expensive. I would have preferred smaller portions, and had a salad included.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
