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.

Cirella's is consistently excellent in all areas - service, food and ambiance. They have some of the best Sushi in town. You always see tables with a variety of classic Italian dishes and Sushi or Sashimi plates. Daily Specials are unique. The staff has never been a disappointment. But please don't tell anyone because we want to get in!

It was Easter evening with our children and grandchildren. We were not able to make reservations any earlier then 8:30 which we felt was late, but we were willing to take,having arrived on time we did not feel welcome at this late hour..our waitress was rather rude and informed us they were only open till 9:00. We wondered why they would take a reservation so late?? The restaurant did call us at 7:15 but left no message and when I called back at 7:30 to inquire they said if you can come early we have tables open..unfortunately it didn’t give us enough time to get there early. The sushi preparers did a fabulous job and made us feel better about being there so late..we love Cirella’s and have always had a wonderful experience in the past it was embarrassing for us as it was our adult children’s first visit..thank you..DeeDee Russell

Always a good time. The only issue was that when we made our reservation through open table, the hostess could not find it. I opened my app to show her my reservation & she looked very confused & told me I probably didn’t enter it correctly even though my app had all the correct info on my end??? I don’t think she knows what she’s doing.

Cirella's has become one of our favorite restaurants in Bonita Springs. The chicken cacciatore is one of my favorite dishes. I also love the Cirella's salad. The portion size on everything means I have my lunch for the next day as well.

We drove over 100 miles to our favorite West Coast Restaurant. Outside Dining is our choice. We Loved everything. First - Eggplant Rollatini, Second - Cirella Salad , Third - Shrimp Parmigiana & Americana Sushi Roll, Desert - Spamonni Tartufo. Also great garlic knots.
You must eat there, can’t wait to go back. All Delicious!!

Lasagna was fantastic.
Plenty of sauce and meat in the lasagna. The small Penne pasta was enough for two. Cooked al dente

Escarole and bean soup broth was not good and very sparse on the broth. Lacked flavor. Edamame served warm. Eggplant rollatine was good.

Was disappointed in the new menu. Preferred the previous wine and choice of entree including salad. Never had a problem with the good. Also, we asked if there was an upgrade in gluten pasta. She told us no but when we received the bill there was a $1.50 charge. We questioned and was told the receipt printed with it in. She graciously stated she could see if it was removed but we chose not to make an issue.

Nice happy hour with great prices on drinks and apps. Tables are pretty close together though, not a great choice if you want an intimate dinner. Waitress was awesome and food was delivered in a timely matter.

Been coming here for years. Food quality and portion size have declined. More fillers then main ingredient these days. It’s a shame because it was my favorite restaurant for years. However, the main reason I am writing this review is because the terrible experience we encountered of the nasty hostess. She really got our whole parties blood boiling not a good way to start an evening out. I was told she is the manager. I can’t imagine her being paid to manage this restaurant and deal with customers. What a shame.

We just moved to this area and Cirella's was recommended to us by our real estate attorney! The food was wonderful! Even though we had a reservation, it took a long time to be seated and waited on. All 4 of us commented on how wonderful the food was! The lobster ravioli was particularly good.

Cirella’s is our go to restaurant when we are here for the season. Good for early eating at the bar during happy hour, an after movies dinner with the spouse or an evening with friends. Book early during the snow bird season.
