    We were a party of 10 with 2 children under 2, and this was our first visit to Ciro's. The restaurant has an outside dining area, a large bar area, and the main dining area (very pretty). The ambiance was excellent, the staff is top notch, (especially our server, Gil), and the food was amazing. Everyone in our party truly enjoyed their meal and commented on the excellent service. Would recommend this to anyone dining in the area, close to the LIE, and easy to find.

    Another great lunch. Ciro's location (just north of the L.I.E. at exit 56) is a great when you're meeting people for a meal. My guest was from northern Westchester and found the location convenient. As always, the food was outstanding, served well by a high quality wait staff. The chef was very amenable to meeting our requests. The clams oreganata were excellent and my fish was memorable. The side dish requested of linguine with broccoli rabe and gatlic and olive oil was great. Of course their take on the napoleon for dessert was top notch. Black sambuca and espresso finished off the meal. One recommendation - have chianti classico or a reserva available by the glass.

    When I went with a friend, there was a Parmigana Special. I got the chicken parm with marinara sauce which tasted very good. It also came with a Ceasar Salad which was good. The bread we got 1st time was heated up and overcooked/burnt. The Napoleon dessert was below average. When I arrived at the restaurant I saw they had a patio and wanted to sit outside since I see at a desk all day for 8 hours a day and wanted to get some fresh air. Two tables away a couple of women lit up cigarettes. I mentioned it the waiter and Manager and wanted them to ask them to put their cigarettes out. Their response was to move my friend and I inside which totally got me irritated. I believe the law in Suffolk is No Smoking close to restaurant.

    The menu was slightly pricey for an Ala Carte menu & not the family style dinner menu I expected to find. I cannot give this eatery the highest rating for two reasons. (1) One of the guests stated "he could smell the bread was previously refrigerated before warmed & served." The original bread was overly toasted. (2) This restaurant will not substitute anything: The waiter stated "you CANNOT have linguine & spaghetti , only one pasta. Choices for vegetarians are very limited so I ordered eggplant parmigiana (only available breaded/fried) along with a plate of fresh veggies and it was DELICIOUS! The other attractively presently dishes also received a thumbs up from everyone - the cook there does a fine job.

    Once again we had lunch at Ciro's. But our lunches are not ordinary - they're more like dinners in the afternoon. We customized the hot antipasta to those items that we liked - calamari, clams oreganata, stuffed mushrooms, shrimp, etc. The pasta was the cavatelli with a meat pnk sauce. It worked!! Since we were "full" we only had room for Ciro's Napoleons for dessert with espresso and frangelico. Also, the bar carries Macallan 12 y/o - one of my favorites.

    The food was ok; portions were giant as expected at an Italian family style restaurant... but our waiter was terrible! Huge attitude; took years to get us food, drinks, final bill - we had to chase him down and pay on our way out the door because (no joke) it was 1/2 hour after we gave him the credit cards that he still hasn't returned with them.

    Want for lunch with 2 friends. Almost 5 hours later, we were in Seventh Heaven! We challenged the chef with requests for items that were not on the menu in a style we wished them to be prepared. The chef not only met, but exceeded our requests. There is a good selection of single malts and the wine list is solid without being overpriced. The Napoleon, while not true to the original, is still outstanding. Have to lose weight in order to go back and dine again.

    Only problem with Ciros is we can't get here enough. Food is always amazing and service is always the great combination of friendly while being very professional. They all welcome you and treat you like you're part of the family. Then serve you as if your family owns the best Italian restaurant. Great food, service and all at a reasonable price as well.

    We've been going to Ciro's in Kings Park for years because the food is always outstanding. However, sometimes it's a little crowded and we have to wait, even though we have a reservation. So we;ve started going to their new restaurant in Hauppauge. It's less crowded and the food is just as outstanding as Kings Park. Likewise, the service in Hauppauge is just as good as in Kings Park. I highly recommend either Ciro's.

The table they changed us to was 2 tables put together one was higher than the other so tge people on either side were uncomfortable. On top of that the food was not great , 3 diners had shrimp dishes and said they were tasteless and tough. Very over-priced, won't go back again. P

    This place was awesome, and an incredible value. I came in on a special parmigiana evening where they had a prix fixe of a soup or salad, any parmigiana entree, and a coffee and desert for $14.95. The food was awesome, very tasty, very well prepared. Every course was something to go back for. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

    Ciro's has great Food and Service. I ordered the Veal Masala. I love veal and I refuse to use a knife to cut it. If my fork does not cut the veal, I do not eat it. This veal was like butter. Great taste. Vegetables were crunchy and perfectly cooked. The waiter's suggestions were excellent. He was great. The dessert, OMG, it was the best. Both the bread pudding and the Napoleon are out of this world.

    We had not tried this local restaurant, yet we passed by it every day and had heard good things about it. Our experience was less than good. We dined on a Saturday evening, but they had booked a large party (about 40 people including kids) and it was not in a separate room. The noise was a problem. We also waited exactly 1 hour for our entree - and mine can out wrong. After an hour I wasn't going to send it back. I don't know whether the error was the kitchen's or the waitresses - and I never will. To their credit they did the minimimal right thing and comped my entree. If they wanted me to return, they should have provided some incentive like a free entrw on the next visit.

    We waited for a seat in the dining room as the dining area by the bar is loud. The dining room was perfect for conversation with friends we hadn't seen for over a year. The appetizers we chose were fried calamari arrabiata and zuppa di mussels. Both were excellent and more than enough for sharing. The dinners were also excellent, the chicken sorrrentina was one of the best versions I have ever tasted, my wife had the shrimp parm and my friend had the Ciro's special scarariello, a half order was huge. The wine list was more than adequate, I was able to find a very good bottle of Italian wine for $38. Even though this restaurant is close to 30 miles from my home, I would not hesitate to go there again, the food was that good.

    We had a great table in a quiet corner, yet able to view the whole dining area. The rib-eye pizziaole was excellent - and the mussels special was a great appetizer - enough for 2. Of course, the napoleon for dessert was the perfect ending to an excellent meal. The Macallan 12 is a great staple, wish they would also have Glenlivet 15 or 18 and Glenfiddich 15 or 18. I prefer them over the 12s.

    Had a great time. Waiter was attentive. Gave us ample time to order and finish dessert before being handed check. Crab cakes were ok. Had rib eye steak special, which was cooked perfect. Frutti de mare seafood medley was also cooked perfect as well as lightly sauced. Had espresso, Mexican coffee and chocolate mousse. No complaints there. Priced right and didn't break bank even by getting alot of extra we normally wouldn't. Would come back and bring friends.
