Good service but just OK food and too pricey for what you're getting. We'll probably drive a little further from the hotel next trip and look for another option.

Arrived at our hotel near Ciros, it was late around 8 pm, so we ordered Take-out. Checked out reviews on Trip Advisor and they were very positive so we ordered based on Ciro's internet website menu. We were pleasantly surprised at the interior of the restaurant when we picked up the meal and wished we would have eaten inside. It... More

Best chicken cacciatore ever! Great service, great atmosphere. Recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes great Italian food. Prices were excellent for a restaurant of this caliber.

We were staying at the Hilton nearby and gave Ciro's a try. Every bite was delicious. The service was excellent, The food was so good we went back again the next night. Nice atmosphere, good location. We even got a charming accordion serenade. I wish we lived close by!

Great lunch specials and nice atmosphere. Visited for a business lunch. We ordered stuffed mushrooms, tilapia and chicken marsala. The noise level was comfortable, so you could hold a business conversation.

The kind of restaurant you hope to find; the owner on premise and service you will come back for. The food is tasty, the service is friendly and they want you to be happy. The owner may even provide you with some accordion music!

We were in town for a college visit and asked the hotel front desk for a pasta place recommendation. They came up with Ciro's. Great choice! Fresh Italian with varied choices, including specials. It was prom night with several tables filled, but we were seated quickly and served quickly, too. The food was served hot with an accordion player serenading... More
