Great Family Italian

Been there several times and never disappointed. Love the owner that plays the accordion. Food is always good and plentiful. Atmosphere is more family than romantic but at this stage in my life that is what I am looking for. Oh yea, do not forget to take a walk around the lake after dinner.

Two bad experiences

I wish I could say I say I had a five star experience - I love Italian food - but unfortunately I can not. I first ate at this restaurant almost five years ago where my mother found a giant fly wiggling in her salad leaves. After a few years and finally erasing that image from my mind, I went back a few weeks ago only to have another bad experience. We waited for a long time to have anyone seat us, they were out o... view more

My Favorite Restaurant EVER!!!

I have been coming to Ciro's since I was in the 5th grade and the first time I walked in I was mesmorized by the unique decorations of moons and suns. You sit down and they give you fresh hot bread (if you're lucky you come on a day when thje owner makes the bread!) The service is very friendly and you always feel as if you are number one. The meals are delicious, i almost always get the cheese ravioli in an alfredo ... view more

Sadly Disappointed

Being Italian and from New York (Long Island) I have difficulty recommending this restaurant. Upon entering you notice an almost uncomfortable decor with tiled floors, unattractive walls and furniture. The prices on the menu certainly would demand a quality meal, but I was not impressed with their plain basic gravies, bland bread and pre-prepared appetizers. In my opinion the owners of this restaurant are focused ... view more

Authentic Italian cuisine, excellent service, good value!!!

After traveling around Charlotte a good 2 - 3 hours we found Ciro's by mistake when we had decided to go back to the hotel were the convention was being held. Upon entry the place was packed and I thought that we would be there for at least an hour before being seated. To our surprise the Owner (originally from Italy) came over and introduced himself and ask if we had been waiting long (This was after about 5 minut... view more

Best Italian in town

Great food, moderate prices and ny family has been going there for over 10 years. All entries are good but I personally love the Veal Marsala and Shrimp Fra Diablo. Specials are excellent but are more costly, usually around $20. Pablo (owner) plays the accordian nightly and helps give the place a family friendly atmosphere. You don't need a reservation but it is helpful if you have a large party. Pizza is NY style a... view more

Wonderful food, wonderful service

I'll never go to Macaroni Grill anymore.. for the same price, I can go to Ciros and enjoy great food, live accordion music and friendly service. My only complaint about my visit was that the tomato in the caprese appetizer had been refrigerated, so it had an icy texture and dull flavor. The bread was fresh and airy. The salad had fresh, delicious croutons and the wonderful house creamy italian dressing. The entree, ... view more

The Best

I have made a mission to try all the italian restaurants i can find. CIRO'S tops them all in food and value. Places like Carraba's and even worse Olive Garden are garbage. I've tried Franky's and several others. CIRO'S is hands down the best italian food! It will not hurt your wallet either.
