Ciro’s italian grill opened the doors November of 1986. It's a fun family owned neighborhood full service restaurant. Do me (Ciro) and my father (Papa "C") the pleasure of introducing yourself to us. We are old school still working the floor 29 years later and loving the family, fun, and food. Thanks, Ciro

My wife had lasagna. She said it was good but serving size was small. I had fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. Serving size was large, chicken was excellent Alfredo sauce was meh. Pasta was good. Restaurant was very noisy. Prices are on the high side. However, there were a lot of customers in the restaurant and more coming in as we left. So it’s popular with a lot of people.

We always enjoy our food and service when we go to Ciro's. I usually request a quiet area as my wife is hearing impaired, even with hearing aids, and it is usually good.
Tonight was extremely loud in the quietest area and she had much difficulty hearing our guest talk.
This is my only real criticism of Ciro's. They could have a quieter section for these times.
Thank you.

We’ve been Ciro diners for many years. Love the family aspect of this restaurant.

Started with a special crab claw appetizer which was excellent. Jumbo claws in a white wine butter sauce with just the right amount of garlic. The crab was fresh and sweet...so good.

House salad for me and a Caesar for the wife. Fresh greens. The Caesar could use the addition of a few anchovies but....

Entrees were the wife’s usual clams and linguini...the pasta is perfectly cooked and tons of clams. She likes the white sauce. I went with the prosciutto and arugula pizza. The pizza is a great size, plenty of toppings and nice and crispy.

Ciro’s wine list is compact but plenty of choices at a range of price points and preferences. We opted for the “baby Brunello”, it’s very dry and “dusty” but nice flavors.

The wait staff is very friendly and efficient.

Ciro's is the best independently owned Italian restaurant in the city. It is a generational gem. Family business is an understatement. We of course miss Ciro Sr who is cooking up a storm in heaven. I take every out of town guest there for a treat. They rave about it. I ate the best veal chop with linguine and white clam. Never had a bad meal there. The service is always great and they have excellent wine list reasonably priced. Do not forget to finish with a pistachio gelato. Our family loves Ciros's and pretty sure you will too,

Ciro's provides an ambience like no other, an elegant dining room, large bar area and an amazing patio, there are endless options for seating. The staff is the reason we always come back to Ciro's as it is always our girls night out go-to. The food and pita bread are fresh and when not so hungry, a cauliflower crusted Margherita pizza is always an option. The manager is amazing and personable, who never fails to stop by to say "hi". We have been eating at Ciro's since being on the other side of I-10 and followed them the short drive over the freeway. One constant is the quality of food never diminished, it got better along with the menu options. Ciro's never fails to give us an amazing dining experience whether in a rush or just visiting for a leisure night out.

My daughter’s 16th A day. Dined outdoors on the patio after recovering from a very very cold week in Houston. We had her Bichon puppy as well. Dinner as usual was great. Rigatoni Frankie as always was good, as was the half-baked chicken.

Can’t fault a place I’ve been going to for over 20 years. There’s a reason that me and many others are regulars. It's like a family, the food is Italian, tasty and consistent, there are never unhappy people, and that never changes!

We sat outside with my elderly mother. Our actual waiter almost never checked on us. A nice younger waitress continued to check on us and would help when we asked. They were not busy and he wasn’t unfriendly just very inattentive. Will eat here again but will request a better server.

We picked Ciro’s to celebrate our home purchase. The ambiance was awesome. Food was great!

Our waiter just didn’t like to wait :) Our waiter came to our table, poured water & turned around left without any greeting. Then he came back took our appetizer & drink order and without recommending any entree or uttering another word more to us he left abruptly. Our server’s ignorance continued on throughout the evening as we tried ‘to wait on him’.

Delicious food made up for the unusual service experience. I am not sure why our server treated us like a table number unread of guests of Ciro’s.
