“The best”
Reviewed May 17, 2009

We grew up in the neighborhood and live out of state. We ALWAYS make Cinelli's on our visits back. Many other resturants change in Rochester, but this is the very BEST. We have traveled extensively and find this to be worth the wait you almost always have to endure. Really authentic. Asfor the bad reviews... too bad some folks are such complainers.

“The food was adverage at...”
Reviewed August 10, 2008

The food was adverage at best, the liguini and clam sauce tasted like tuna fish, the eating are is cramped, you feel like you're going to bump elbows with the table next to you..

“Unacceptable”
Reviewed May 26, 2008

We made reservations for this place for my mother-in-law's birthday at 6PM and ended up getting seated at 7:30pm. This is just plain unacceptable, regardless if that's the norm at this restaurant. Why even bother making reservations if that's the case? The food was about average and we felt rushed while eating by the waitress. There were also plenty of middle-aged locals and wannabe bikers in the bar area giving us the staredown for no particular reason. Don't waste your time with this place. Major bust

“Wait...wait..wait...great food!”
Reviewed October 6, 2006

Even if you made a reservation you will end up waiting for at least an hour or so.
I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be disappointed if you love Italian food.

“Solid Italian Food”
Reviewed August 8, 2004

Excellent food. There are often waits, while the tables are very close together. However, the solid Italian food makes it very worthwhile.
