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

I am a regular customer. i go there often for a late
lunch or in the evening

It seems that the lunch hostess does not honor my requests for a quiet table .
over the last year it is the same issue. My friend and i both have hearing aids. we don’t request a certain table but just ask for a quiet one.
she insists on giving us a table where it is noisy.
I will have to quit going if thus continued.
i have gone to this restaurant for years
with Anita Macaione Brown when she was alive and my family as well.
we specifically arrive at 1 or later to miss the lunch crowd.
i am really tired of having a rude hostess give me a hard time.
you may call me at 281-750-2677

Very family oriented restaurant. 30-40% children. Very loud with a lot of commotion. Food is just ok, very little flavor.

Food was very tasty, quite flavorful. Service was good, though waiter was quite busy. Very good caraf table wine (Chianti) large enough to keep 4 people happy. Noise level fairly high, but we could have a conversation without shouting too much. Place was very busy. Be sure to get a reservation in advance.

Its really changed a lot over time. The service was straight up bad. Waiters just standing around on their phones, Peroni was hot and continually looking for our waiter. It used to be one of our favorite places for lunch but I think we will be looking for a new go too.

We were seated immediately and visited by our server. It was particularly busy this evening - maybe due to pre- Valentine diners. We had very good service and the food was excellent. It was extremely noisy in the alcove we were in. Other than that, we enjoyed our dinner.

We were there for a business lunch, so a quiet spot was important. They seated us in the outside covered and enclosed patio area around a corner. Very conducive in conducting business. BTW, the food is GREAT and the service TERRIFIC! This was my second time and both experiences consistently excellent.

The server made us feel extremely rushed in the process of ordering. After main courses before the rest of my family was done my pizza had been cleared and packed. At one point even though my mother was eating all plates on the table were cleared and she was the only one left with cutlery and plates on the table. After giving us the desert menu it took our server 20 minutes to come get our order. Despite the reservation note saying it was my mother's birthday and me confirming with the hostess before we sat down our "Tiramisu" was just put on the table without a candle or any message.

I had high hopes for a family friendly good food lunch but unfortunately this was far from the case.

Food took unreasonably long and not only our table but all tables around us. Order was incorrect after all the wait and the food that arrived was poorly executed.

Even when trying to pay the bill I had to “track down” the manger that took my card after several minutes of waiting.

Wanted to support local restaurants but we will not be returning.

Ciros is the best family restaurant around. The waitstaff is great, food is yummy and it is reasonably priced. We recommend it to everyone and probably go at least once a week!

If you have a family with 5-11 year olds, this is a great place to go. The kids love it and the adults can relax with a glass of wine and good Italian food.

We went on New Years Eve, so it was quite crowded, but had a reservation and got our table outside on the patio within 5 mins of our reserved time. The band on the patio was a nice surprise and we really enjoyed it. Bellini was tasty, but not much alcohol in it. I had the spinach gnocchi with Italian sausage that I would highly recommend. The service was a little slow on refills of drinks and water. I will return to try more dishes.

Came here for a birthday dinner and it was a great experience. I forgot our server’s name but he was incredible. Service started with warm bread and olive oil dip. Our server recommended a soup that wasn’t on the menu and the soup was freshly cooked. You can tell it wasn’t sitting on a warm pot. Everyone enjoyed their dish, I ordered the chicken parmigiana with fettuccine alfredo. The alfredo sauce was the best I ever had. This may depend on which server you get but he added some time between courses so we’re not fully stuffed. For desert we all ordered some espressos and they were hot and tasted great. Highly recommend the tiramisu, one can feed about 2-5 people. Can’t wait to come back. Only rated 4 stars for ambiance as the website stated live-music everyday, but we didn’t see any the night we were there. (12-27-19)
