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

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.

Their prices seems to go up 50%.
Too expensive for Cirella's.

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

Always on their A game. They were busy but honored our reservation on time. Great service from a new waiter who made a good impression. Food is always top notch. We sat outside in the “garden”, and a good time was had by all. We will be back

Reservation was at 7, we took a outside table to get seated sooner at 745. Didn't get a waitress until 810. Took 20 min for our sushi, 45min for our main meal.

Watress was very nice

Food was very good, best sushi roll special I've had in a while. Salmon special very good too.

Very small seating areas, very small 2 person tables, AC vent condensation dripping where bartenders work. Possibly in drinks? No parking.

I won't be going back, but the food was very good for the price, might do takeout.

They have outside seating, but it is near Rt 110. For some reason, there are cars without mufflers who ride up and down, making an awful lot of noise.

We were asked to give any comments when we gave the reservation we told them it was our 30th anniversary but nothing was done about it so I don’t know why they wanted to know it would’ve been nice to receive it after dinner cordial or a dessert but there was no recognition at all

Fabulous food and service . Was only disappointed that I asked for a corner table that was empty and hostess said it was for 6 people, and then sat 3 people at the table. Ethan was a phenomenal waiter. Answering our questions and even going to check in kitchen how something was made. We were not rushed and bread and waiter refilled . Company was great too.

The food was delicious. We started with their incredible bread basket. Warm and soft. We shared the octopus with bean salad- beautifully prepared. I hade the zuppe de Pesci - a huge portion of muscles, clams, shrimp and calamari . My husband had capellini with egg plant and ricotta. We took home a lot. For dessert- gelato. Service was excellent. A wonderful dining experience

My husband and I had dinner with another couple who are longtime friends. We chose Cirella’s because it’s approximately midway between our homes. I hadn’t been there in over 10 years, when I worked in Melville, which was for business lunches.
The interior is very attractive now. Parking was limited but adequate for a Wednesday night. The cocktail and wine list and the menu were all very good. Our drinks were fine. Each of us ordered the small portion of our choices, which were HUGE! I won’t be cooking for the rest of the week. The food was delicious, service was good, and we had an enjoyable evening.
