we had great food there on a friday night. we had no reservations and they asked us to wait for 20 minutes for a table. they gave us each a glass of wine to help with the waiting. the food was fantastic - risotto with pumpkin and a whole fish deboned and baked with potatoes. i highly recommend this restaurant

A little bit tucked away from the main streets but worth finding. Felt like we were sat in a little cave - a very nice atmospheric set up. Staff are super friendly and chatty and the food was delicious.

Landed in Salerno for a night en-route to Rome tomorrow - found Cicirinella through Trip Advisor and happy we paid heed. Small, intimate setting with passionate owner and chef team. Proprietor Luigi was kind enough to squeeze us in at 8 pm as this table was booked at 9 pm - we had an hour to taste food and wine... More

The visit at Cicirinella last night was fabulous. We had a lovely antipasta which looked and tasted great, a pasta dish rizzotto with pumpkin, fish and a beef steak. All cocked to perfection. The place is a not to miss spot in Salerno.

We returned two nights in a row to this amazing restaurant. The food is cooked based on products from the market, the wine recommendations are on spot, it was delicious and great value for money. Reservation recommended.

From the moment you are greeted by the passionate, warm host you feel welcome in this cosy gem, tucked away on a side street. We were there twice for supper over the five days and observed that many locals frequent the restaurant. The owners/ chefs place great value on fresh, seasonal ingredients and are proud of their menu, which changes... More

While looking for another restaurant on the area, we decided to go to Cicirinella and was not disappointed. Everything, and I mean everything was delicious. The greeter was as passionate about the food as the chef. The experience is one of the highlights of my trip to Italy. I hope to make it back for another enjoyable meal in the... More

Waiting outside was totally worth it. Our own bad because we didn't make a reservation. Nevertheless the owner made us wait with a glass Cava. That made us happy ;)
