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.

Stopped by for the first time, the service was great, I tried the lunch special a salad and a pizza, I thought it was only gonna be a slice but turned out to be a small pizza. I had plenty to take home. I thought it was pretty good. Will go there again

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

This place has specials that you could not decipher. You had to order at a certain time and a certain item to get. Very poor. Food was OK and the menu was OK. Probably will go some where else next time.

This 50 year old restaurant in Indio served good Italian dishes in a very casual atmosphere I loved the ravioli and the eggplant Parmesan was a hit with our friend Service was great and the house Chianti is quite good!

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.
