The food was delicious. But their bread needed some spice along with their vinegar and oil. It was easy for a party of six to talk in spite of an accordion player.

A couple of friends and I had a girls night out and decided to give Ciro's a try based on recommendations. It was near our hotel, and the area it is in is beautiful (with the waterway, shops, etc). Unfortunately it doesn't sit on the water, but it was still charming nonetheless. The bread seemed a little stale, but was... More

Ciro's is an Italian restaurant but different in that it is actually operated by Italians! The food is good, authentic and, remarkably, is not over-salted as chain restaurants usually do. The service was excellent and it was interesting to watch the owner train the new servers. A very good place with reasonable prices and a good wine list. Certainly worth... More

Ciro's is a very quaint and charming restaurant in a strip mall area in the University section. The atmosphere is wonderful. Very clean and staff that truly care about your experience. Pallo is a wonderful person who plays music for you at your table and I believe he makes the excellent bread that is served. I am partial to the... More

I had the special fish dish with angel hair pasta and tomato sauce. The fish came out coated with something unrecognizable and almost looked fried. The pasta was good with spicy pomodora sauce. There was way too much food to finish. My co-worker got pasta and halfway through finishing it found a hair in it - Yuk. The service is... More

Ciro's is one of my favorite Charlotte restaurants. It is family-owned with pride in the quality and presentation of the food obvious. Delightfully decorated interior and well laid-out seating makes individual or family dining a very pleasant experience. Excellent beverage options are available along with the extensive menu. The staff is very friendly. Be prepared for a moderate wait for... More

With so many Italian restaurants, it is difficult to decide which one to go to. Not for us. Ciros food is an 8 while the atmosphere is a 9.5. From the old fashioned table cloth feel to the accordion serenade, it just feels like a date night.

This restaurant was wonderful. The atmosphere was very elegant, however folks dressed in anything from jean shorts to suits were dining there and we all felt comfortable and welcomed. The service was fantastic and they provided excellent suggestions. If you want true made from scratch Italian, then this is a great place to visit. If ever in Charlotte, again, we... More

Great staff and the food was as good as it gets. It was so good , I went back the night after to explore the menu further. My only complaint was the place was a little stuffy. The food made up for it.
