Very convenient for the Prado 12 and by "last night" in this area, I mean that they're open until 9pm during the week, 10pm on the weekend. Nice to sit outside as it can get noisy inside. Nice, diverse menu.

We had eaten there several times in the past and compared to the first couple of times the food has gone from very good to just below good. The sauce was watery it actually they as if tomatoes from bruschetta were throne on top and the meet balls had many fillers.
My other half had macaroni with muscles and other fish she was concerned about the taste of the muscles.
Having grown up in New York and knowing their restaurant in Long Island there are big differences .

Eggplant Parmesan was terrible, the other guest ordered chicken Parmesan and said his was not good. I have never before had eggplant parm that looked or tasted like this. Under the top layer of cheese was a loose filler of something that looked like Ricotta cheese. I should have ordered sushi which is usually good there.

We go out every Friday night to try a new restaurant, I did not add this to my favorites. I did give all 5 because I believe that surveys are Ad nauseam. What I really want you to know is how excited we were to go to this restaurant and at check in our anticipation was completely deflated. We were told that if you make a reservation online with OpenTable your reservation is for outside. While it wasn't terribly humid or hot we were dressed to sit inside, but abrasively given no option. The food was good, the service was acceptable.

We like Cirella’s. We had a couple fresh salads, the wife had the grilled salmon and enjoyed it although the pasta underneath it was very bland. I had the Sunday Gravy which was very good - a nice mix of Italian Sausage, Meatballs and Pork Bracciole -enough to have it again tomorrow! We will be back.

Interesting restaurant that has both italian food and a sushi bar. We stuck with the Italian side of the menu but the sushi rolls ordered by other diners looked awesome!! Our food selections were really good as was the service. Would definitely return.

We have been going to Cirella’s for years and it has always been excellent. However having been several times this year it seems the support staff have been drastically cut. And our server was new and he was either very inexperienced or poorly trained. We had a few issues but the worst was when he broke the cork in our bottle of wine. Instead of immediately taking it back to the bar, he continued to dig at the cork. He eventually got it out but we did have small bits cork floating. We made light of it as we didn’t want him to feel badly,

Read the reviews sounded interesting. Crowded on a Saturday night and seemed a bit short on staff which I think hindered the service and perhaps the food. Believe when not overwhelmed the staff would do a much better job

Arrived on time. Two people had eaten & paid & continued to sit at our table. Hostess Christian Pierson had checked on numerous occasions on the table & they refused to move. As we observed them sitting at the table they continued to remain & stare at our party. After 40 minutes we opted fora high rise table, my grandchildren were hungry.
Christan gave us a free round of drinks, for the problem with our reservations. Max was our waiter & more than compensated for a disaster of an evening. I will always remember this mans face & how miserable he was.
Please acknowledge christan, Max & the kitchen.
Thank you

They recently raised their prices and deleted a few items. One of them being their Sushi Lobster Roll. Both are disappointments and might make us go somewhat less but its still great food and service

We always get sushi from Cirella’s; it’s outstanding! The sushi chefs, Ron and Dustin are great! The sushi is so fresh and the rolls are a good size. The best sushi in town, we won’t go anywhere else.
