We had a late lunch here, so the place was pretty empty, but that didn't diminish our enthusiasm. The selection of old country dishes is pretty authentic, and the food tasted and looked great. The wife has spinach and egg soup and a quinoa/kale entree, and I had a kale salad followed by a personal pizza. It was filling, savory,... More

Who knew sushi would be available at an Italian restaurant...and be that good. Service was GREAT and so was the food. I hope to come back. Jerry Ehrlich from the Great City of Philadelphia

First time here. We have passed it many times, as we live nearby. Service is excellent. Interesting menu, many choices besides basic Italian found everywhere. We will return

I was in town for a business trip and was looking for some Italian food. I asked someone at the hotel and they recommended Cirella's for dinner. I was by myself, and was going to sit at the bar and eat, but they found me a table in the dining room, which was packed with people, Debra, who was my... More

We just had a party for 40+ people. Everything was perfect. There were special requests for people with nut allergies, shrimp allergies, vegetarians, and kosher restricted diets. Everything was served with absolute attention to detail. Food was superb as was the service. Everyone raved about the choice of party venue. Kudos to Dean, Tammy, Ed and the entire staff for... More

Appetizer and Main Course The food is outstanding. The appetizer for the table was the largest seafood combination of fried fish I have ever seen for a table of six full grown men. So much that we had leftovers for another couple of hungry appetites. The side of sauce tasted as though it was made with San Marzano tomatoes and... More

This is a great place to go for lunch. Not too crowded and still great food. I have been here 3 or 4 times and enjoyed each trip. The fried calamari was very good, fresh and tender. The eggplant park was very tasty as well. Service has been great every time I have been there. Prices are reasonable and the... More

I went here for the first time last week. I had the sushi and it was very fresh and very good. The service was good and the atmosphere is nice. They have valet parking but there is no extra charge for it, so no need to find alternate parking. My coworker had the special which was lamb chops and she... More

This place would be great if it were twice the size. Love the food and if you can get in during non-peak hours it's great. That said, if you try to get in there for dinner it's always a zoo, too many tables in too small a space. Try it for an early Saturday or Sunday dinner.
