After trawling Trip Advisor, we came across this restaurant. Admittedly, due to poor map skills and a lack of road signs, it took us a while to find this 'hidden gem' but it was sooooo worth it! We arrived at about 8:30 and were greeted by a very friendly waitress who appreciated our poor attempt to ask for a table... More

This place far exceeded my expectations, it was small friendly but turned out the most elegant and tasty dishes. I started with the Antipasti sampler and was in awe of the beautiful presentation and sheer number of flavors presented from sweet ricotta to a yummy eggplant and tomato dish. I ordered the classic penne pasta dish with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese... More

Football World cup was on when we were in Italy and we were unable to eat when Italy was knocked out as all bars and restaurants were full! However our 2nd night in Salerno we found Cicrinella next to the Duomo. It is a smallish restaurant with exposed brick walls and an open kitchen. The chefs prepare what is fresh... More

We recently returned from a 3 week trip to Italy that included 4 nights in Salerno. Luca Santulli, the owner of Salerno in Alto Mare, the bed and breakfast where we stayed, suggested Cicirinella in addition to three other restaurants for us to visit. Since I had earmarked Cicirinella before our trip as a potential dining spot, we decided to... More

Great twist on Italian cuisine with a modern touch but while keeping an emphasis on great traditional tastes, flavours, and ingredients. The menu changes everyday with what the market will offer but i'm sure it'll always be fantastic!

I can really recommend this restaurant. The service is exceptional and so is the food. Their pastas are some of the best we've had and the fish is great too. You will need to book if you want to dine here at the weekend as, not surprisingly, it is very popular.

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, enjoyed our first dinner in Salerno at Cicirinella. The restaurant is north of the old city near the Duomo area. Google maps helped. The restaurant indicated that the menu changes daily. On our visit we each had an appetizer consisting of four different items (potato/tuna, beef croquette, pesto cheese & zucchini & one other tasty... More

Nice small restaurant in the old part of Salerno. The courses were all freshly prepared and delicious. The "acceuil" is extremely pleasant. The chef has quite a creative flair. Had a lovely Fiano wine from the region. Certainly, one of the nicest restaurants in Salerno. We are fairly particular, and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, and... More

We stayed in Salerno for a week and visited several restaurants there for dinner. Ristorante Cicirinella was one of the places we ate in and we were very glad we went there. If not for one issue (more on this below) we would have given 5/5 for the overall rating. The menu was obviously prepared by a chef who knows... More
