A Great Night Out

Its been a while, but I must say that this could be a weekly stop. The seafood salad, Sunday gravy and parmigiana were outstanding. As I said "weekly stop".

Not my first visit to this sweet spot. Fresh crusty toasted Italian bread (suggestion...offer seasoned olive oil for dipping) to start. House salad with yummy lemon vinaigrette included with dinner. My spaghetti putenesca was spot on. Girlfriends totally loved their veal piccata, and lasagna dishes. Being able to BYOB makes it even more endearing. More frequent visits are definitely called...

Great homemade food in a small restaurant with great value. BYOB to accompany your meal. Only drawback...No reservations...except holidays.

We've been enjoying Citrico's for almost five years now. Great food and service! That's why we keep coming back for more. Last night was a party of 6. Everybody left filled up & very happy. Our close friends enjoy it too. It's a BYOB, with great daily specials, and a good variety in the menu. Mangia! Mangia!!!!! Cheers! ---- Ken

On a recommendation we found our way to this local Italian venue and loved it. It seemed like everybody was a regular and it was a fun place to enjoy a delicious homemade meal. And that it was...the waiters were charming and efficient. They all worked together as a team. BYOB, and they had the large bottle of Pelligrino which... More

The other night we joined friends for dinner at at Citricos. Our friends had eaten there in the past and were quite enamoured with it as were other reviewers. These favorable comments were not far off the mark for my linguini Bolognese was mouth watering while my chicken francese was tender, perfectly fried in an egg batter and complimented by... More

My husband and I have dined at this local restaurant several times over the past month because it's that good. The evening's specials as well as the menu choices are freshly prepared and served by extremely attentive waiters. We also like that it's a BYOB. Although Citrico does not accept reservations and the restaurant is small, it is definitely worth... More

Went here last night with a group of ladies to celebrate a friends birthday on her recommendation. What a great find this was. Yes, the dining room was small and it is BYOB but once you taste the food you are in nirvana. The rice ball appetizers are killer and should not be missed. The specials all sounded wonderful and...

Recommended Byob place with no reservations. Arrived early seated immediately. Friendly and helpful with the menu. Seafood pasta was very rich but good. The special veal was great. Could use some green on the plate like a piece of broccoli perhaps. Salads were good and appropriate. Need better water service to stay hydrated. Overall a super experience. Even bought a... More
