“Cheap place to stuff yourself”
Reviewed October 9, 2007

Ci Ci's is a place to stuff yourself (and your family) cheaply. Simply put the food is average and the atmosphere is loud and reminds me of a grade school cafateria.

On the positive side the Forest Drive location in Columbia is almost always clean and the staff does a fairly good job of being friendly.

But in the end, this place is a quantity not quality establishment.

“Cici's is not good for discerning diners”
Reviewed February 20, 2007

With all due respect to the previous poster, CiCi's might be a good place to take your whole family to eat cheaply, but it's no place for an adult who is looking for delicious pizza in Columbia. I went there once - and I shall NEVER, EVER return. The food is bland and boring, which is part of the reason why kids might dig it. A bulb of garlic has never infiltrated this restuarant, folks.

If you want good pizza in Columbia that appeals to adults, try Za's on Devine St. Yes, you'll pay more money than you will at Cici's (which is a national chain of pizza buffet restaurants), but you'll enjoy a locally owned restauant when you go to Za's and get a wide range of well-prepared gourment pizzas at a reasonable price. I also like New York Pizza in Five Points (also locally owned) and Mellow Mushroom in the Visa (part of a chain that is only in the SE part of the US, I think).

“great place”
Reviewed January 17, 2006

We have visited this restaurant many times - a great place to take children, especially when they all want to eat something different. Buffet style pizza, pasta, sauces and salad bar, if you have any room left after all that there is a selection of desserts. Help yourself drinks with free refills.
For children who need something other than food for entertainment there are some arcade style games at one end of the restaurant. The bathrooms have always been clean when we have visited.
Good value for money.
