Octopus over cooked. Two of us had it and when waitress was told she didn’t offer a solution. My wife’s pasta with red clam sauce dry and pasta also overdone. She left dish untouched and wasn’t asked why. Beans and escarole was excellent.

We and are friends have been going to Cirella’s from NY to Bonita Springs for many years. The Best customer forever was with us who was very disappointed with the simple rigatoni polmadoro and calamari. We asked the waitress if there had been changes to the kitchen and she said yes because of the new Naples restaurant and Michael’s running that store now. Eventually the Manager Lisa came by and was very rude to our friend who just celebrated his 75 birthday recently. Her comments were “ did you ask you waitress for aldente pasta” and then “so your not coming back here because of over cooked pasta”. We told her all at the table to stop and we were very disappointed in the food and Lisa! She only shut up when we said maybe we should tell Sal and Arlene about your comments! They’re the original owners in NY. Very sad experience at once excellent Cirella’s. The waitress was excellent!

I’m a loyal patron since opening and have to say the service level has slipped. We had a pleasant waitress who was totally inexperienced...asked my wife if she wanted a glass for her prosecco or wanted to drink it out of the bottle... forgot to bring olive oil with the bread...messed up drink orders... miss ordered an entree replaced it with fried green beans ...
All in all. You are only as good as your front line employees.

We always eat sushi here and it is Outstanding! We ordered off the Italian side of the menu and it was disappointing. Over cooked and without flavor. Stick with the Sushi here!!

Cirella's always serves very good Italian food and they have very good sushi also. They are packed most of the time so it is rather loud. They are somewhat pricey, but I guess that's the result of being a popular restaurant. They have a membership program and you get a $25 gift card for every $200 you spend.

Cirella’s is one of the places that we patronize on a regular basis. This time the place was extremely noisy. They were hosting two large parties. One was for 30, and the other for 16. The groups were loud. We had difficulty speaking to each other. I realize they could do nothing about the noise other than trying to host such large groups in a spot that wouldn’t impact the regular patrons. It is a business after all. But it did have a large impact on our experience.

Usually the meals are very good. I got the Red Snapper, and it was dry and over cooked. Huge disappointment. We’ve always gotten the Italian dishes and been pleased. If this was my first visit I probably wouldn’t go back. But I hope this was an aberration, and will stick to the Italian dishes in the future.

Cirella's is always the go-to place for good Italian food and great sushi plates. That is why it is generally crowded and I would suggest making a reservation. Prices are about average, the menu is wide ranging and if the service appears a little slow, it may be because you ordered some sushi which seems to slow down the delivery of other food.

The only problem with Cirella’s is that it is very noisy. That is one of the reasons we don’t go very often.

Italian food and sushi make for an unusual combination but Cirella's pulls it off with aplomb. The Italian side of the menu seems limited, but locals flocks here for good food and good conversation.

Friends had just come back to town and wished to get together for dinner. They specifically requested Cirella's even though they live in Cape Coral. It's a nearby favorite of ours, though! Dana was our server on this quiet Monday evening, so she had a few extra minutes to spend chatting with us, much to our delight! Great girl! Fun night!

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 .
