We love Italian food and decided to try Ciro's as we could not get into another local restaurant without a 20 minute wait. Usually, when walking into an Italian restaurant, the aromas are great. After we were seated, my wife made the comment, that she didn't notice a lot of aroma, and I had not paid any attention but did... More

I met a friend here at here request. I probably won't make any effort to return. Food was OK, but service was lacking. They were not busy, but the waiter seemed anxious for us to order quickly. Once I was served my Iced Tea, I was never offered a refill, even though I set my glass at the edge of... More

Ciro's has been in business for years and has the best lasagna around. I love their mushroom soup too.

My husband went to Ciro's after reading the reveiws. I was somewhat disappointed. I love veal, so I tried the veal picatta. It came in a bowl and was like a soup. The veal had been breaded, and the breading was turned to mush. I've never experienced a veal picatta that was served like this. My husband ordered a pizza... More

Great pizza, cute restaurant and great atmosphere! When we pulled up, the parking lot was packed and we had to park in the neighboring restaurants lot. Staff was great! Can't miss!

We have dined at this restaurant each time we have visited Indio. I always have the baked Manicotti, and have never regretted. My Husband has ordered the Spaghetti and Lasagna and cleans his plate with their fresh baked bread. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We are from The East Coast so I'm a bit picky about my pizza where you can get it at its best anytime anywhere. Ciro's pizza was bomb.com! I ordered the bbq chicken pizza! It was so good I wanted to eat the whole thing but I filled myself up on bread and butter! I did heat it up in... More

The Mazzellas moved to the desert after many years as owners and operators of successful Italian Restaurants in New Jersey.Over the years other family members joined in the growth of the business. The menu was developed by request of the customers, so everything that is available is tried and accepted over the many years. Anna and Jerry's success is due to their having paid exceptional attention to the choosing of the freshest ingredients and the daily preparation of food in the best manner possible with consistency. ~~~Ciro's loyal customers attest to the success of the Mazzella's efforts over the past years. Ciro's is dedicated to serving the freshest, highest quality Italian food and we dedicate these efforts to our new customers as well as to the hundreds of loyal friends that have developed over the years. Ron and Norma Hare continue the tradition today.
