Good service, food is ok

We went on a Sunday night and it was not busy at all. The restaurant is huge so with only 3-4 tables occupied it seemed even emptier. Our service was really friendly and efficient.

We had a great time at Ciro's....food was very good, location was great, service was excellent and they have a gentlemen that plays an accordion. Accordion music isn't something you hear often, but the musician was very good.

We were in Charlotte for a week and ate here twice. During the two meals I had the best fried calamari ever, crisp and not at all greasy. It was a huge appetizer, more than enough for 3-4 people. We also had stuffed mushrooms that were tasted but the consistency was very soft. The first time I had delicious eggplant... More

We were looking for someplace to eat close by the house and we came upon Ciro's. The atmosphere was great, it was a great night to eat outside.. Food was excellent and the service was excellent as well. Will definitely go back...

Ciro's is a hidden treasure in the University area of Charlotte. The service is GREAT and the FOOD is even BETTER--Big portions and wonderful taste is what you can expect--they are family owned and they truly care about the customers!!

We just stopped in for a pizza and were in a hurry. Our server, Sergio, made it easy for us. We had the medium size Hawaiin pizza and two of us couldn't finish it. Wish we had had time for a pasta meal, as well as the desserts because they looked awesome. Next time we're in Charlotte and staying at... More

We found Ciro's by chance on a recent vacation trip. Food was excellent, especially their signature rose' (pink) sauce on a combo of chicken and shrimp over pasta! Service was friendly and reasonably quick. Atmosphere could probably be best described as "sophisticated casual" or something like that - not formal, shorts were OK, but no noisy kids running around, either!... More

Good restaurant, nice atmosphere. The pasta specials were reasonable with huge portions, and the Stromboli was more than enough to share.

Good service but just OK food and too pricey for what you're getting. We'll probably drive a little further from the hotel next trip and look for another option.
