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

Nice quality Italian food. The calamari is nice and crispy. The red fish and trout were fresh and nicely pan seared without too much sauces drenching the fish. The veal scallopini and pizza's are always great too!

Crab Claws were EXCELLENT.. great service..

Hostess not so friendly, I only say this because this is the second time i see the same lady and she really needs to greet us nicely. Acts like i am asking so much by making her escort me to my table.She is the first impression of a restaurant and her sour face . I can tell she is not happy even with her mask.

Waiters are ALWAYS WONDERFUL, masked, attentive and nice..EDGAR A..

Peter (Pietro :-) is a fantastic server, who remembers how his customers like their food, what their preferred drink is (a splash of bitters in my wine or prosecco), and always adds an above-and-beyond touch to his service (a taste of gelato, a sac to take some fresh herbs home from their giant pots outside). The food is always spot-on, with updated offerings like zuccini 'pasta' which make this light-eater more likely to crave a pasta dish and head to Ciro's (though I am always torn between mixed seafood pasta or their generous seafood wedge salad).
I have been a semi-regular since two locations ago (when they were a charming eatery at Campbell and I-10), and I've remained faithful as they grew through two others. This newest version of Ciro's is stunning, with a giant covered patio and outdoor seating, plus a stylish and welcoming bar and the brilliant addition of the gelateria/dessert and bakery at the entrance. Despite growing significantly in size and seating capacity, they always treat me like it's still just a friendly, fabulous neighborhood secret. BRAVISSIMO!

Great dinner, great service, but of course it would be better if the restaurant was filled with people and socially distancing and masks weren’t a thing. Looking forward to things getting back to normal sooner rather than later.

We were surprised to learn by dinning in the patio we qualified for happy hour prices. We took advantage of the discounted wine glasses and the build your own antipasta for our salad. The main course was excellent. My wife order spaghetti with meatballs and Italian sausage and said it was cooked exactly as she likes it. I had the bacon wrapped filet with vegtables and it was cooked perfect.
We will definitely return and recomend this place. We did not indulge in the dessert but their dessert selection was better than most places we have eaten.

We have been going here for many many years. We were there to celebrate my sons fiancé's 30th birthday. Everything was Outstanding and our waiter was so great and quite entertaining. Everything was excellent. Thank you for making the night special for my future daughter-in-law and for all of us.

We dined here for lunch for HRW, and the food was outstanding. The portions were generous, and the service was outstanding. The outdoor patio is very large and comfortable with fans. I highly recommend CIro’s.

Food was very good. My dinner companion was a bit disappointed in 2nd margarita (regular) ordered. She said it tasted like different brand of tequila was used. Was not too happy about that.

Ciros is our go to, once a week restaurant. It is a perfect setting, with a wonderful patio with lots of fans. During the pandemic, we are staying outdoors for dining and it works perfectly. Wait staff is friendly and like family. Always a great experience. Food is yummy too! Great happy hour prices.

We went for lunch during HRW because the menu was full of great choices. Please note that the fettucine alfredo has a 3 dollar upcharge and it is not noted on the menu...another item reflected the upcharge. So if that is what you are craving be warned. The food was very good. The sausage and peppers were amazing. The chicken picatta and the risotto were both excellent. The Oatmeal cookie desert had chocolate chips which provided an interesting flavor. Our server had a hard time communicating clearly and the masks do not help but he was very nice. Social distancing was being adhered to and that was much appreciated.

I ordered a salad with walnuts and feta and had them add blackened chicken. The chicken had a wonderful flavor. The price of the salad was low and I was very satisfied. I’ll definitely go back. Love this place. Service is consistently good.

This is the second restaurant in a week where I made a reservation on open table (seasons 52 being the other) and restaurant has no record of it even with me showing our email confirmation. Food was nice, very busy even at 6 pm, and other customers were having the same problem.

It was my son’s 22nd Birthday and Ciro’s is a family favorite. We haven’t dined in much since March but felt appropriately distanced from other diners and were able to enjoy the delicious dishes we have come to love!! Service is always incredible and we return again and again because of the quality of our meals.
