Loved the atmosphere and the food and the owners of Ciro! I also loved the Lyndsey Salad - maybe it's because the creator of the salad is from the Midwest and so are we!lol I would highly recommend this restaurant!

So, one evening, walking by it, I went in. I could see from outside that the place was jam-packed—a good sign, I assumed. I had a terrific pizza there, and enjoyed this restaurant's lively atmosphere, while dining. Prices seemed a bit high, when compared to other places, but not at all unreasonable. I'll go back.

We had the rocket salad, the spaggeti carbonara, chicken breast and podi fillet and they were alla very tasty! But when the restaurant started to get crowded ( it seems to be popular to the tourists) the service became slow. Noisy because of the big companies of tourists and a 15% cover or tips and the amount of the bill... More

Really disappointing to give a poor review, but I don't really have any other choice - we went there specifically because they say they prepare their gluten free foods in a separate kitchen, and we figured this was one place he wouldn't get sick. Wrong. Immediately after finishing his pasta (which he enjoyed, for what it's worth) my husband was... More

A traditional Italian restaurant, set in a restored, historic building (you can see fading frescoes on the walls), Ciro & Sons offers a nice ambience for dinner. As a large group on a cold October night, we reserved a table inside and the place filled up quite quickly, and seems rather popular with tourists. We’re all vegetarian, and ordered a... More

The family motto must be "get 'em fed and mov'em out. They presented a false show of cordiality instead of a sincere concern to please the customer. The pizza was limp, none of it was crisp and they claimed that this is the true style of Neopolitan pizza - I must Wiki that tomorrow.

While in Florence, travelling alone, I stopped in to have a meal at this fine restaurant. Sitting outside on a busy pedestrian only street, it was a delight to people watch as I ate a fine reasonably priced pizza with a good glass of wine. I returned the next evening and enjoyed another meal. Being alone, the staff treated me... More

Love the guys here. For nearly a decade I've been eating here and am never disappointed. We got the pizza vesuvio and wow, it was amazing! Great lasanga, too. The location is great and the staff are always so sweet. Can't miss it when you're in Florence.

This place was recommended for its pizza. Not sure why. Totally soggy pizza with too much sauce. Service was very good, but they are serving poor pizza.
