Very good Italian food, at a fair price.

We went there with another couple, using a discount coupon. We have been there a number of times and have always enjoyed it. The waitress was the owner (along with her husband, who prepares meals) and was very friendly and efficient. She said that, if there was anything not on menu, let her know... read more

We have been in before and always loved it...our recent visit was no exception. Consistently excellent food - sauces and pasta home made. Every bite was a little bit of heaven on a fork. It is the only restaurant where I don't salt my food - not that it's salty (because it's not) but because the flavors are so wonderful.... More

Businesses need to have a very clear definition of what they are, and focus on it as the guidance for their day to day operation and future planning. I feel like that’s either missing or misdirected at Caffe Il Cipresso. Here’s a restaurant with outstanding food but that is below par in other respects. The dining room is very plain,... More

We chose this restaurant because it's nearby and a friend recommended it. I'm so glad we gave it a try! We were a little worried after reading some mixed reviews. However, we enjoyed our meal very much. For an appetizer, we shared the mussels fra diavolo. This was a huge portion- easily a pound of mussels- and the spices were... More

We hadn't visited il Cipresso for many years and used to enjoy the food. When we saw a Groupon offer, we expected that its new location that had more space would make for a more comfortable experience. The decor is a actually a bit depressing, with the feel of a dark diner, and unfortunately, the food was a real disappointment.... More

Recently our couples group ate a wonderful Italian meal there. We began with cocktails at the bar which is a place that lends itself to mixing and mingling with the beverage of your choice. Our dinner began with delicious garlic bread, followed by a robust soup or a complete salad. The dishes ordered included chicken parmigiana with pasta and a... More

Café il Cipresso has great food at a reasonable price. The atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired, so we always sit downstairs at the bar. Great bartenders there and there's always friendly customers at the bar to chat with. Lots of TVs as well so you can tune into your favorite sporting event. Watch for Groupons as they have... More
