Have always loved Cirella's
Have always loved Cirella's - even though so noisy you can hardly hear yourself or the ohter person. When we got there for dinner around 6, it was okay, but by the time we left restaurant was crowded and extremely noisy.Menu has changed too, but food and service remains good.

To go to a restaurant and
To go to a restaurant and be able to request pasta dish to my liking is wonderful. whole wheat penne with broccoli and chickpeas (my favorite) in garlic and oil prepared to perfection. Went the night before and had a perfectly prepared chicken cutlet over a bed or salad. Again, excellent. My favorite place to go during the week or on the weekend. Hands down

Treated my boyfriend here
Treated my boyfriend here for his Birthday. Excellent choice. Great food and great service. Had a mixture of Sushi and Italian food. Everything was delicious. A very positive experience. Good place for celebrating an occasion.

Food was great but service was eh. Just because Mondays are slow doesn't mean it's ok to be not as friendly.

Love the food/service. Where
Love the food/service. Where else can you get veal parm or sushi and both are great? A little tough drive right now because of the construction on 110, which makes the approach difficult.

Had a first date there & hostess was so nice. I had flowers & they gave me a vase so I can put them into. So I wouldn't be eating with them on the table. Food & dessert where very good. Me & my date enjoyed it. She didn't know about this place & she works within 5 minutes of it.

This place is great for a lot of reasons besides friendly staff, prompt service, and great food. They have a great bar, often music. Been there for business dinners as well as family dinners. The owner also makes rounds the old school way. Overall a must go to place.

We had an outstanding meal.
We had an outstanding meal. Place was hopping. We had a sushi appetizer special, that terrific. The Veal Chop special was also outstanding, do not think I ever had better. Dean, the owner, stopped by our table and was charming, checked in to make sure everything was perfect (it was). Reccomend highly without any reservations.

early mothers day
First time here.Took parents for dinner.They don't eat meat-&we were glad there were choices available.We order 2 lrg pastas,a pizza & lrg salad-enough for us four.The salad was excellent-spinach w/dried cherries&goat cheese.The reg pizza-had mom going for more.Had pasta primavera-garlic/oil & pasta w/eggplant sauce(dont recall name)were good- but a bit bland.Only issue was salad served same time as other items-prefer seperate the cold from the warm foods-didnt think to request.We will go back for the salad&pizza & perhaps try a different pasta.The waitress was friendly&other wait staff attentive(water).Note-if you like quiet-check for parites.There was a party- about 20 girls-while a little noisy,my parents enjoyed seeing them having fun.

Absolutely great food and service. My wife and I enjoy coming here for special occasions. It's our "spot."

food seems to be getting better every time we dine there. the menu is much more interesting now. pasta with broccoli rabe and sausage was best I've had anywhere.

Pounded Veal Chop Parm - MUST TRY!
This is an excellent place to engoy a great Italian meal, and they also have a Sushi Bar. The shrimp cocktail is sold by the piece, so you can order what works best for you. The shrimp are large, and crisp. (I hate soggy, mushy shrimp)
They also offer a Gluten Free menu, with a great selection of dishes.
And, IMHO, the best entree on the entire menue - a pounded veal chop parm. The chop oveflows the plate, and the meat is so tender, you can cut it with the butter knife instead of the steak knife.

If you like Veal Parmigiana in general, you will aabsolutley LOVE Cirella's Veal Chop Parmigiana. It's unbeleivable! Not only does it taste great, but must be shared by two- impossible to eat by onself, no matter how glutinous one is. The chef will split it in the kitchen, and you can fight over the bone portion. Then you wind up eating half of the half, and taking the rest home. Great deal. Yum-Yum

Food is good, tables too close together, and noise level was a negative.
Met friend who travelled from out east, and location was close to the parkway.

Third time I have eaten there. One time for lunch, found it nice but crowded. 2nd time took my honey, loved the food and service, but a bit too loud with a group party. Third time, took my honey and two other couple, all the wifes had a Brithday with-in a few days. Wasn't too loud (except for my table) Service was excellent, food out in time. I had the pounded Veal. Never seen such a large peice of veal and piled with salad. It was excellent except, they didn't put enough dressing that made the veal a bit dry.
They where apologetic and gave my doggie bag an extra bit of dressing. With out asking the crew came out with desert with all three with birthday candles. Nice touch Guys!! Will see you again

Cirella's is a great place to frequent. I am a fan of their shrimp parm dinner. It is the best I've had any where! The ravioli with the mushroom truffle sauce is also a hit! The dinner portion sizes are perfect. Mixed drink sizes are also perfect, not the two sip ones served at other places. Service was well timed and friendly. The staff works together to insure service is well timed.

We were a party of 6, decided on the family style menu which does not have too deep a selection. The menu states that these items are for 3-4 people, well there was more than enough food for all 6 of us (5 if you are very hungry) and we brought food home! We had the Cirella Salad, eggplant rollitini, chicken Marsala and the special ice cream dessert for the table. Everything had great flavor and it was a great value. To top everything off the waitress was excellent. We are looking forward to returning to Cirellas!

Really enjoyed my experience here. They had the wine I drink which was very nice since most restaurants dont carry it. Menu was very versatile. Entree very tasty. Service was excellent. Came back many times to ask if we needed anything. I would recommend this restaurant to all.

Delicious & on time
Had a delicious meal and honored our reservation time to the minute. Have not been here recently but have always liked this restaurant. Took friends that have never been here before and when we got there the place was packed & thought we would have to wait a long time for our table. We had reservations & they sat us at exactly the time we had made our reservation for. The dishes our prepared beautifully and there is enough for 2 to share one dish. The food was delicious and I will be going back again sooner then later.

Rainy Night at Cirella's
Although it was a rainy night when I dined at Cirella's, the staff were cheery and very attentive. The food was better than I was expecting. The service was first rate and the atmoshere was a little noisy but it was cozy. The Valet service was very quick and did their best to kep us dry. overall, it was a very good dining experience and i would recommend Cirella's to a friend.

Italian Food That Won't Disappoint
Very good Italian food at prices that won't break the bank....which is why this place is always crowded! The servers really seem to know their stuff and are quite efficient....our server made some awesome recommendations. I love that you can get half portions of pasta. The Nutella/pizza dough dessert was quite innovative and delicious. My only complaint is the noise level...but this seems to be a common problem in restaurants these days...definitely not the place for an intimate dinner!!! Location is convenient but not scenic and valet parking is helpful given the size of the parking lot. Go and Enjoy!!!!

The food was fantastic again. Everything was great starting with the appetizers through dessert.

Great eats in Melville
Consistently great food and great value. Never tried the sushi offerings, but the Italian and American traditional steaks, short ribs are delicious.

We have only been to Cerella's a few times. But have never been disappointed by the food or the service. Every waiter or waitress we have ever had there is knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. It is a great place.

Great food and service
Excellent service from start to finish. Food is terrific and portions are filling. Tables are close together but not intrusive. Best Chicken Parmesan on the Island.

Great Service - A request
Great Service - A request for a corner table since this was a business meeting was taken care of in advance of our arriving at the restaurant. The Branzini was excellent as were the Italian specialty dishes offered up by our server.
I would definitely recommend Cirella's for a Business Event or a private dinner. Great Food and Great Service!

The new high tables by the sushi station are a great addition. Food is always good and they took care of my kids very well.

Great Business Dinner
The perfect place to have a business dinner. The variety of food available was outstanding. I had one of the best pieces of Sea Bass ever. Our waiter really knew how to handle our evening. The BYOB Wine Night was totally unique, but a very fun idea. It will become a frequent spot to go for our business dinners.
10/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good food, good atmosphere. Staff is attentive. It's a little bit noisy but no worse than other restaurants.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Portions were quite large.
Portions were quite large. I ordered a veal dish which came out cold. The waitress should have told us it was a cold platter. A little surprised to see how much the ice cream was. No price on menu for ice cream or coffee. Overall it was excellent and I woild recommend the restaurant to friends.

Great food! Typically wouldn't order sushi at an Italian restaurant but it was delicious and would recommend it to everyone! Always love their calamari and never have a complaint about any of their food.

Our party of ten was accommodated with a flair of excellence as if we were only two. Food and service were outstanding.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first time to Cirella's, which was highly recommended by friends. I had heard it was noisy but they fixed that problem with padded walls and carpeting. The food was excellent...great variety, and very good service.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I always love eating at Cirella's! From the personable staff to the delicious food. And, they always let me make a change to a menu item to fit my taste!!!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have been to Cirella's three times in the past few months. The food is very good and the service is EXCELLENT. Since the waitstaff certainly are part of the dining experience we will return there often.

The food and service were
The food and service were very good. the tables are too close together. the wait staff could not get around the table, they needed to reach over us to pour water or place the food down. Since the table were so close the noise level was high.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was excellent and our waiter was a GEM. he knew everything about each dish we asked him about. He even suggested items for us to have and they were delicious.
