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.

This was our "go-to" restaurant up until 4 years ago when we moved to Florida. Now it is our "go-back-to" restaurant every time we go back to New York........doesn't matter where we are staying, we make it our business to get back to Cirella's. Food is always plentiful and delicious, service is always tops........we love it and miss having it nearby where we can drop in whenever the urge hits us.

Good family restaurant where children of all ages are welcome. I have dined here many times and have generally been happy with the food. This time I order the veal chop and was disappointed because the meat was not tender and I had to ask for a better knife to not make cutting it an ordeal. Not bad enough though to send it back and order something else because it throws off your whole dinner when dining with others. I will go back, but never order the veal chop again.

The food was good and the service was excellent, however in my opentable reservation I wrote in the comments that we were celebrating my girlfriend's birthday. At no point did they do anything differently that you would normally see for a birthday dinner, (ie: sing happy birthday) That was a little disappointing, however the food was good and our waitress was pleasant and very attentive to our table, my cup of water never got below the halfway mark without our waitress promptly coming over and filling it back up.

i live in the neighborhood and wanted some friends to try it. We made reservations as u wont get a table otherwise. Our table was ready as soon as we got there. Our waitress was very sweet name was Paulina never rushed us and was there for helpful suggestions. The portions for the most part are big. They have healthy selections like spaghetti squash zuccinii linguini instead of always spaghetti. I got shrimp with roasted cauliflower very delicious but wish there were more veggies. My husband got chicken parm and the portion was extremely big. We ordered the flat bread pizza as our app but i did not thhink it was any thing great. Next time i will try the grilled calamari. I will definitly go back

I took my parents there for dinner on a Saturday night. They had valet parking which was great . We came into the restaurant and were seated promptly. Our server was excellent. She explained the menu to us and brought us water, bread and took our drink order not long after we were seated. The menu was very large. One side of the menu was sushi and the other side was Italian. They also had a specials menu. We had the meatball appetizers and a salad. For the main course I had the zucchini pesce, my had the short rib ravioli . Everything was delicious. My parents loved their entrees also. This was our first time here, but will not be our last!

Very disappointed this trip in the Italian food. Very salty. Put my pasta on a separate plate which was cleared and was thrown out. Requested plain pasta to mix into the dish which came back half full and still salty. Ordered sushi which was good.

Salty dish was on the bill as was the sushi. Waitress brought over a “manager “ that was nasty and said I ate my meal. Only wanted to give 1/2 off the dish. Was antagonistic and rude. The difference was only $18 on a $200+ check and rather then leaving feeling taken care of felt very disappointed

Food was great but valet car service really needed when the parking lot is about 100” x 100”? Especially when we were the only two cars in the lot and the door was 25” feet away.

The food is good and the people are nice. We always loved this restaurant, but the noise level is just too high to talk with the people you’re with. We will probably go elsewhere in the future just because it is noise overload. Pity ...

We were very pleasantly surprised about our dinner at Cirellas. In general we have been disappointed in the quality of restaurants on Long Island, especially compared to Brooklyn and the city. However, both the food and drinks (my husband raved about his Long Island Iced Tea, which is a very hard drink to get right) were creative and fantastic! The service was also great. It is a bit expensive but worth it especially for a special occasion. We will definitely go back!

I've been going to Cirella's for years now and whenever my manager is in town, we come here. He loves the Shrimp Scampi and even though it's not technically on the menu, Cirella's was more than happy to accommodate him. From the delicious bread that comes out with the ever so slightly spicy olive oil, to the massive appetizers and delicious entrees, I'm a big fan. I had a special appetizer that night, the Bucatini pie, which was delicious and it hit the spot. The service was excellent. Our waiter Justin was super friendly and always checked in on us. Everything was top notch and if I was hungrier, I would have gone for the prix fixe. Great value at $35 and the food my Italian mother-in-law would have given the thumbs up. I'll be back again and again and again. Thanks Cirella's and Justin for making our dinner so enjoyable.

Live in the neighborhood so my family wanted to go.. Our waiter named justin was great. very helpful and gracious. Not rushing us at all. Always had my water glass full and i drink a lot of water. The appetizer was not rushed and the main course came out very hot!!! I like my food served hot. If not it goes back!!!! Did not have room for dessert maybe next time. U cant go without a reservation. They try to seat promptly but we waited about 10 minutes. We shall return!!!

Our 3rd visit and the first time we were disappointed. It was Valentines Day and the owners had way to many tables out. They were greedy so the wait staff could not walk around. They literally were bouncing off of customers chairs. It was very uncomfortable to eat like this. We ordered the seafood dish for 2. The portion was too tiny for 2 people, there were only 2 shrimps in the dish and the quality of the seafood was subpar for a restaurant. I have received better seafood from Shop-rite.
