Went to Ciro's for the first time. It atmosphere was very nice. I felt the menu was pretty pricey, so we just went the pizza....great choice for the price! It's obviously a popular place for dinner because it got busy as we were leaving around 5pm. Will definitely be back.

Went with a work group - everyone enjoyed their appetizers and entrees so I would give the food a thumbs up! The staff handled our group well (there were 12 of us) and everyone's food was served at once. Although the restaurant was pretty empty, we were in an area away from the main part of the restaurant - between... More

Wife and I live very close to Ciro. We didn't know it was in our backyard and were excited to try. I had a glass of the Barbara which was light and perfect with the salmon special. They placed the salmon on a white whine sauce and sautéed spinach...it was delectable. Wife has the penne and she added some crushed... More

Friends had told us that Ciro, in a shopping center near UNC Charlotte, was better than average for Italian fare, but we found the food to be uninspired. To start, the small loaves of bread were plain and doughy. My Caesar salad was made with iceberg lettuce and what tasted like grocery-store dressing, my wife's veal and spinach entrée had... More

We came here to eat on New Year's Eve before attending Widespread Panic's show as it was near our hotel. At first glance the prices were a little high but that is really not the case at all once you see what you get for your money! The calzone I ordered was enough for 2 meals and so was the... More

Pretty large restaurant locally owned with NY background. Menu is quite extensive. Pappardelle al salmone is good. Zuppa di pesce is excellent if you like seafood. Service is good.

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
