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

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.

My friends and I had a wonderful time at Ciro's. We sat on the patio and it was lovely. The weather, the atmosphere was wonderful. In the midst of the pandemic, we felt comfortable. The server made us feel comfortable and safe. And of course, the meal was delicious.

As always the food and desserts are great. My wife always orders the spaghettis and meatballs. the meatballs are huge and the sauce has just the right amount of spices to go with the tomato sauce. The veal picatta with the zuccolini is always my go to dish. My nephew and niece enjoy the calamari appetizer and veal parmigiana for the main course. The meal is followed up with a piece of cake that is enough for four. They have a very extensive menu that will meet anyone's taste and the dessert selection is fantastic. We highly recommend this place. The patio seating is our favorite place to dine.

The service as far as ordering, refills, and keeping the table clear was what earned the restaurant their stars.
The food was good, the most tasteful thing I ate was the warm flatbread.
Everything else was rather bland.

I do know they paid zero attention to the notice in my reservation about my shellfish allergy and the waiter did not inform the kitchen when I told him.
Shortly after eating there I went into Anaphylaxis, this was very nearly the most costly dinner of my life. This night was the first time I ever had to use my Epipen.

Our food was okay...bread was delicious. BUT the noise level was attrocious and we were originally seated in a small sidew room that had 3 small 4-top tables (one was ours) ansd a table of eight exceedingly loud people made it impossible to hear one another. We requested and were given another table and thennothing...no waitstaffm no water, no silverware. finally we had to ask for a waiter who was good butseemed to forget we were there.
