A word from Cirella's Restaurant & Bar
25 years at this "bustling" Melville hub for both "business meetings" and " family celebrations," "gracious" hosts make folks "feel welcome" as they dig into "large portions" of "delicious" Continental and Northern Italian Favorites. The first to turn a veal chop into veal parmigiana and the first to offer sushi at an Italian Bistro "crudo" Italian Sashimi. Sushi Chef Alan Kim ranked 3rd best sushi on Long Island. The Cirella family owns and operates restaurants in some very unique locations. When shopping Cirella's @ Saks 5th Ave in the Walt Whitman mall. When hitting the Beach Surfs Out in Kismet Fire Island and when traveling to Florida Cirella's in Bonita Springs Fla. Each Restaurant is managed by a family member which means you can always find a cirella around "our family serving yours" has become our slogan over the years. Become "al la familia" ONE OF THE FAMILYContinued

Diner Reviews
  • "Always enjoy coming here when I am on the Island. Food is very good, service is excellent and neighborhood feel makes it great place to eat (especially compared to the hotel restaurant). Both the bar and main dining room are fun."

  • "Whenever there's a special occasion or a reason to go out to dinner as a family we always choose Cirella's. We don't go out that often and know that it will always be good and special there. My twins chose it again when their aunt asked them where they wanted to go for their middle school graduation. Of course for them it's all about the penne alla vodka. And they say Cirella's has the best! One of the few things they actually agree on! The adults can never decide because everything there is great...including the sushi!"

  • "We have passed this spot numerous times for many years, as we live in the area. As soon as we were seated, the wait staff was on the spot, friendly & helpful. Large menu - Italian & Sushi ! Never had grilled veal bf, excellent. Definitely going back, with friends"

  • "Was seated promptly, excellent food, first time having dinner there but have had lunch here on multiple occasions. Again the food was excellent. The service was slow. It took 45 minutes before the food came out."

  • "This is an ordinary restaurant in the true sense of the word. It was recommended as a sushi restaurant by a reviewer in Newsday. I didn't have to all the way to Melville when I have Japanese restaurants in Great Neck. Try Saki 68 and Sushi if you want good Japanese food."

  • "We came to Cirella's for a family gathering. My husband and son love their veal chop parmigiana. It was consistently good! The only problem we had was that we waited for 30 minutes by the bar even though we had a reservation. Normally I wouldn't mind that much, but my daughter-In-Law is pregnant and it was not a comfortable spot for her to wait for a table. In their defense, I have never waited that long for a table at Cirella's when I had a reservation."

  • "The food was excellent and as I titled, this place understand customer service. 2 in our party wanted items not found on the menu. When they asked the waitress her quick reply was, oh, we have the ingredients to make that, we will just make it for you. Not that the selections onthe menu were not adequate, all of our meals in a party of 6 were excellent. Wine selection was also very nice. When we travel back to Melville we will definitely make this one of our stops."

  • "This was a special occasion with a party of 6. We were seated promptly but it's a tight area. Eliminating one or two tables in the entire room would make it feel less cramped. Food was very good, but the wait staff was very brusque when it came to table service. Clearing plates harshly- there was too much reaching across other peoples place settings (with food already in place) to serve or clear (again, it's a very tight place, not much room between tables, so the staff were doing the best they can.) Our bill came pretty much with dessert and we had a coupon, our waitress put it down so fast and went on to her next task, that we didn't get a chance to even ask her to apply the coupon. The hostess was immediately available to do so. "

  • "I don't live nearby and have not been to Cirella's for several years, but was delighted to find it just as good as I remember. The food was fabulous, the wine selection excellent, the service friendly and accommodating. One of my favorite restaurants anywhere. I wish I lived closer!"

  • "As always, Cirella's does not disappoint. The veal parm is "the vest in the city" & the sushi (yes sushi at an Italian place sounds insane, but as a sushi fanatic I can tell you it's super-high quality & awesome-voted number 3 on L.I.). Always too loud and a bit slow, but always worth it"

  • "First time dining here, 8pm on a Saturday, & every table was filled, a lively crowd. Seated immediately. Room is fairly packed in w/ tables, & noise level was LOUD, but we didn't have a problem hearing each other. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Odd that the menu includes sushi, but our friends told us they had tried it on a different visit, & it was very good. We all stuck to the Italian side of things, & we all raved about our dishes. Grilled octopus app & salmon entree were full of flavor, cooked perfectly & fully enjoyed! Great, friendly service from Bonnie. We will definitely be back soon."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Service was friendly, comfortably personal & attentive. Food was outstanding & wonderfully prepared. The negative is the tables were WAY TOO CLOSE together. Our wall table couldn't help overhearing every word of the tables next to us' conversations, and they couldn't help overhearing ours. It wasn't very comfortable. My friend was telling me his occupation and the woman next to us asked him questions about his business for her son's career. The table on the other side asked about our food choices. Granted, it was rude of them to ask, the point is it was like we were all dining together at the same table, uncomfortably. The seating left much to be desired. Please don't ruin your wonderful food & service for crowded tables for more profit!"

  • "Cirella's food is always excellent. They have different types of Italian food too - not just your standard chicken parm, eggplant parm etc. Service is excellent and very professional. Prices are reasonable for the quality of food you get. Have been going there for years and will continue to do so."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I've been coming here for years & never once had a meal I didn't really enjoy. The Veal Parm is truly the best you'll ever have...& fit for Fred Flintstone. Plan on taking some home. The sushi (who's ever heard of sushi at an Italian restaurant?) is absolutely superb-better than many sushi places. Try the sashimi. It melts in mouth. Only issue is how loud it is. Otherwise, go & enjoy!"

  • "Food . . . plenty of choices. Today, I only rave about the boneless short ribs & branzino, from our last visit! And, if you like grilled/charred octopus (appetizer) . . . don't pass up Cirella's. Service . . . our server was most attentive, while also attending to other tables. The wait for the food was hardly noticeable, between courses; even though there wasn't an empty table in the house."

  • "I am not from the Melville area and was visiting my office there for a business meeting. I found Cirella's to be be very close with good reviews. The food is delicious and service was prompt but a little cold when we stuck with only water. The other disappointing aspect was the restaurant required valet parking for lunch. I can understand for dinner but in my opinion that is outrageous especially when they did not even move my vehicle from the spot I parked. Also Cirella's website makes no mention of the valet parking requirement."

  • "I have to say, I am not one to ever complain about a dining experience, but I was so disappointed in Cirella's this past Saturday night. Our waitress was very pleasant, but after we placed our order for a bottle of wine and a few app's, she disappeared. Had to wait an hour to order our dinner and once it came, it was cold and just plain terrible. In addition to the food and service being horrible, it was jam packed, the tables were on top of each other and extremely loud. I hadn't been there in a couple of years and in the past it was always enjoyable, however after this past dining experience, I would never go back again. :("
