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 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.

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.
