After driving almost 3 hours, we had dinner here on a Wednesday night. There were other interesting entrees on their menu other than steak so we decided to give them a try. My spouse ordered the Osso Bucco which is normally made from lamb or beef shanks, but this restaurant used pork shanks instead--something we had never seen before. It... More

My wife and I have stopped in Pendleton almost annually for about eight years and have not yet found an actual good restaurant. I have to say that Virgil's is the top contender to date, although I was not totally taken with my meal. First, the décor is...interesting, with a fairly cozy front end but a cavernous back area enlivened... More

Friends took us here, didn't know we would get one of the best meals I can remember. I have eaten all over North America, this place is as good as anyplace I've ever been. I had a Filet that was the tenderest I've ever had. My wife had the portabella and said it was great. Highly recommended.

Tipped off by the front desk at Holiday Inn, we went to this delightful downtown restaurant without reservations on Saturday night. Luckily, we were early enough to get a table. I had a very nice salad to start with, and my husband had a seafood stew...he said it was the best he's had! Our prime rib was perfect, and generous,... More

Loved Cimmiyotti's! Great food and really great service. Loved the warm blue cheese & bacon dip and the Prime Rib!

Going over the Tripadvisor photos of the food served in this restaurant I wouldn't dare to eat here. But luckily I didn't see these photos before I went because it doesn't do the place any justice. This place is probably the best in town but I don't think the competition is that great given the time I spent around town.... More

I ate here many times at the previous Cimmiyotti's, many times on my birthday. When we made the reservation we let them know it was for a birthday, but sadly, no acknowledgment was made. The service was friendly though. Our water was filled often and we were checked on as well. I'm not a fan of brussel sprouts (the side... More

My family and I had the pleasure of dining at Virgil's of Cimmiyotti's this past Saturday evening. We called at last minute for reservations and they graciously made arrangements and our table was ready upon arrival, despite a apparently busy evening. I ordered the ribeye, which proved to be one of the best steaks I've eaten and cooked to perfection.... More

Third times a charm....NOT we will not return. Once again they failed to provide food that was worth the rice or time to wait for. Medium well steak was rare to med rare and veges were burned beyond edible. Other plate was a noodle and beef type plate that had a sauce on it that was just plain disgusting.

My wife and I came here for our date night on Friday. As a former executive chef and front of the house couple we dine with a particularly critical eye. Decor: Dated but clean. As they are obviously going for that "old school" look, dated works in their favor. As I always do I checked out the restrooms as a... More
