4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was here with a group of other convention attendees. We were there early and ahead of the crowd. The food was decent but not memorable. While I was waiting for the rest of my party and seated at the bar, a box of frozen tortellini was added to the check freezer behind the bar. Really!?

Same review as before. Man why did I go here again? Ordered whiskey chicken and shrimp. Chicken good! Shrimp rubber! I did enjoy the pizza another person in our party ordered! Once again, overpriced for what you get.

We get the take out here and the pizza is not cheap, but it is GOOD. Parking can be tough on the weekends, with construction going on in the adjacent lot though they do have a couple of spots for pick up right down front.

My wife and I are in Charlotte for the first time and tried this restaurant because of proximity to the hotel. Pros: Quick service (although there were only 5 other people seated), homemade sauce - big plus, reasonably priced, big enough portions to split Cons - Tasteless bread, frozen chicken in the chicken parm (huge let down...), pasta undercooked Anytime...

Have enjoyed Ciro's many times over the past few years. Food and service has always been great. Love the atmosphere and live music played by the owner. Great menu, had the Bolanaise tonight and it was outstanding! Real gem, worth looking up.

Outstanding menu, better food, and the best people. The gnocchi is terrific and you can't beat a little accordion accompaniment with supper. Definitely check it out if you're in the area.

From the moment I stepped into the restaurant, I felt as though I had been transported to the "Eternal City".... From the Roman columns, to the accordion player, the decor and entertainment was wonderful! Now, onto the meal..... The sausage roll was absolutely delicious, and the tiramisu, .....OMG! It was so light and so delicious! My Dad ordered the limoncello... More

Wife and I shared Calamari appetizer and seafood linguini meal. Both were fabulous, Calamari was tender with light breading, we could not eat all the seafood in the meal. The sauce is a little spicy, very good. We also enjoyed the accordion player coming around the tables. If I lived in Charlotte Ciro's would be my go to Italian place.

I have been to this restaurant twice. The food is really good. The pizza looks great, although I haven't had it. The eggplant parm is wonderful! Wait staff is friendly and very efficient. Nice choice for Italian food.

I went with about 8 coworkers and we had a great time. Dinner was fantastic - and everyone raved about the variety of meals we had. The atmosphere was nice and service was great. I would definitely go again.

Thank hopefulangel
