In many years of dining here we have never had a bad meal or experience.
Sushi is some of the best on Long Island

I am consistently impressed with this restaurant and the staff who works here. The food is outstanding the portions are huge, and more than that the restaurant actually cares how their clientele is doing. Their professionalism and expedient service are to be recognized! They make it a family atmosphere and a great birthday party for your family :-) so happy that I chose this restaurant

Delicious food and great service.

One of my top 5 favorite Italian restaurants on Long Island.
Food and service have always been great. As soon as you walk in the door, you get a whiff of great cooking.

This was our first time eating out on Christmas Eve. I couldn't think of going anywhere else but Cirella's. Our server Katelyn was amazing as is the service every time we have been here. All four meals were fabulous and of course we had to take doggie bags since the portions are so large. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

This is not a restaurant that I would recommend. Service was slow and inattentive. Food was only fair and that is being generous. If your looking for good Italian food go somewhere else.

Although the tables were too close together and the noise level of the room made us shout to be heard, the food was worth the inconveniences.

The food is pretty good for authentic Italian, but not great.
Our waiter was more concerned with making friends with other tables then serving us.
The artichoke appetizer is good, but has a lot of lemon flavor.
Skip the penne alle vodka.
The ragu sauce is good.

Food was very pedestrian. Linguini w. clam sauce had two whole clams, one tasted spoiled. The clams on the pasta tasted like they came out of a can. Eggplant Rollatini tasted like a mozzarella with sauce dish, unable to distinguish the eggplant from the mozarella cheese and the grilled chicken with salad was fair ,but the chicken lacked flavor and the dressing on the salad was weak.

My date and I were there for an early dinner on a Friday. The service and food was good, but I felt a bit cramped. The table was too small to hold food, drinks and bread basket (2'x2' for two people). Our reservations were for 6PM, and by 7:00 the noise level was deafening. My mistake for asking a girl out for dinner on a Friday.

We liked the food but the waitress was not very good. We still treated her right with a generous tip. She may only have been working a few short weeks. Since it was Yom Kippur they must have given her Saturday night. Paula screwed up our orders right from the start. A gin and tonic in a very short glass with no ice, when I asked for a tall glass with ice. Should have realized then.

It sure smelled good when we walked in for an early dinner last week, but the reality was rather disappointing. We split an appetizer of a shrimp dish that was smothered in marinara sauce. The shrimp had hardly any flavor, and the marinara sauce? I've had better out of a jar from the supermarket shelf. My wife's main course - linguini with clam sauce - was also unimpressive. My lasagna was meh. I've had better at our local pizza joint. Perhaps we went on an "off" night. Perhaps we didn't order the "right" dishes. But whatever. We were not impressed, and will not return. Long Island is filled with Italian restaurants, so there are plenty more to try the next time.
