Italian
25 years at this "bustling" Melville hub for both "business meetings" and " family celebrations," "gracious" hosts make folks "feel welcome" as they dig into "large portions" of "delicious" Continental and Northern Italian Favorites. The first to turn a veal chop into veal parmigiana and the first to offer sushi at an Italian Bistro "crudo" Italian Sashimi. Sushi Chef Alan Kim ranked 3rd best sushi on Long Island. The Cirella family owns and operates restaurants in some very unique locations. When shopping Cirella's @ Saks 5th Ave in the Walt Whitman mall. When hitting the Beach Surfs Out in Kismet Fire Island and when traveling to Florida Cirella's in Bonita Springs Fla. Each Restaurant is managed by a family member which means you can always find a cirella around "our family serving yours" has become our slogan over the years. Become "al la familia" ONE OF THE FAMILY

I always love eating at Cirella's but when the pandemic began, it became my
only go to restaurant for lunch and dinner. Everyone is so kind, helpful and friendly.
Thank you for providing me with delicious food and a safe haven to get out of the house LOL.

We had a delicious dinner at Cirella's. I think the Lasagna was the best I have ever
had. My husband had Seafood over Capellini with a Vodka Sauce that was terrific.
I have to say our waitress Michele was wonderful. She was so attentive , sweet and knowledgeable . Michele made our evening so enjoyable .
We will definitely be back.

We took my daughter and her Fiance' here for dinner. We had a 5 pm reservation and we were warmly greeted and sat immediately. Dinner was delicious and all of the staff wore masks. We shared the large Caesar Salad and the Cirelleas Calamari. We were all pleased with our dinner, two of us ordered off the menu and two ordered the specials. Oh, my daughter and her beau both were impressed with their drinks!! They are certainly generous with their measurements. We were too full for dessert but had espresso and coffees. Can't wait to go back!!

The food here was delicious. The restaurant was full which made it a little bit noisy but not too bad. Parking is pretty difficult. Overall, a great place to dine.

Very nice waitstaff. Place has character and is an enjoyable place to dine. We ordered 4 dishes and everyone said their meal was good! It wasn’t like “wow 🤩” but you did get plenty of food to take home with you for another meal the next day! We were too full for dessert!

Ease of making the reservation was good. Staff were nice. The calamari appetizer was a large portion. The Italian menu offerings were limited though the waiter did prompt me to ask for specific item that was not listed and I got what I requested. The bolognese sauce was disappointing - acidic - not particularly flavorful though the portion size was good. My companion had a lasagna dish that was a special offered and was pleased with it for size and flavor. Waiter needed multiple reminders/ requests to bring ice for the water and my soft drink. For the bread basket the focaccia was very stale - bread was not warm. The room had poor acoustics and we could hear every word others nearby said. My specialty drink that was offered was a good size but I didn’t care for it though I didn’t bother mentioning it - but it was potent. Overall the dinner experience was mediocre.

If you like really good Italian food and big portions then this is the place.

Everything is wonderful. Great sauces - whether tomato, marinara, meat or whatever.

They specialize in Parmigiana: the veal parm is actually a veal chop. Kind of a tennis racket on your plate.

Normal people will take it home and eat for three to four more days.

Desserts are really good. The apple crisp is special.

Although the noise from Route 110 was a little annoying, having a good restaurant with comfortable outside seating more than made up for it.
