Best pizza in Charlotte

Not sure about the other menu items, but when my girlfriends and I meet at the Wine Vault, we always get an artichoke and pesto pizza from Ciro's. It never disappoints and is reminiscent of NY pizza. It is made by real Italians and is evident by the authenticity of flavor and texture. I would... read more

4 of us chose Ciro's for dinner one Friday evening. We talked so much about it Saturday during our business meeting that 22 of us returned that evening! It was that good! My wife and I are retired from 20+ years in the U.S. Navy and have had lots of opportunities to visit around, live and eat in Italy. This... More

Since I grew up with great Italian food I'm very fussy about Italian restaurants. I'm ambiguous about this one, so most people would probably love it. I had the chicken marsala, a test of good cooking. It was not bad at all. My friends were happy with their choices. The bread was great!

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
