We have been here a few times! We went this month as a group! The service for such a big group was great! It's an intimate and cost atmosphere. The meals are delicious and portions generous. Good wine list! Decent cuppachino.

Our good friend Cosmo always takes his good friends to Ciro's for special celebrations and we are never disappointed. Once you have negotiated the busy road and parking, the restaurant is a joy to the eye and the palate. Ciro is a fine host and...More

The dishes are very expensive. You order veal and you have to pay extra for potatoes and for vegetables. My veal was not refined it was like a schnitzel swimming in melted butter .wines are overpriced not a nice experience. Owner not very friendly.
