25 years at this "bustling" Melville hub for both "business meetings" and " family celebrations," "gracious" hosts make folks "feel welcome" as they dig into "large portions" of "delicious" Continental and Northern Italian Favorites. The first to turn a veal chop into veal parmigiana and the first to offer sushi at an Italian Bistro "crudo" Italian Sashimi. Sushi Chef Alan Kim ranked 3rd best sushi on Long Island. The Cirella family owns and operates restaurants in some very unique locations. When shopping Cirella's @ Saks 5th Ave in the Walt Whitman mall. When hitting the Beach Surfs Out in Kismet Fire Island and when traveling to Florida Cirella's in Bonita Springs Fla. Each Restaurant is managed by a family member which means you can always find a cirella around "our family serving yours" has become our slogan over the years.

Was there two times in the past two weeks and I asked if the chef was new. Garlic knots were not as good. Fried zucchini appetizer came out well done. Salad with chicken had a different dressing. Was a little disappointed. I was told the chef was the same but I hardly doubt it. I really enjoy the restaurant and try to frequent it once a week but it was disappointing

I'm often disappointed by even the "best" restaurants but my first visit to Cirella's was wonderful. Everyone associated with the restaurant was friendly and professional and the food was outstanding. Looking forward to my next visit.

I was a bit upset that they never informed us that the A/C was not working and when we asked they finally told us--People were walking in and leaving and we were already halfway through our meal. The least they could have done was bought us dessert or something for staying through the heat--it was quite uncomfortable

Better off going to a fast food restaurant would get better service and better tasting food menu and staff needs to be revamped

We had a wonderful dinner at Cirella's over the weekend. The service was friendly and professional, and the large portions of food were delicious. Our only complaint is that the dining room is a bit cramped and loud. We enjoyed the Caeser salad, pasta with seafood and pink sauce (Cappellini Pescatore), and the veal chop parmesan. The veal chop was pounded very thin, with the perfect breading/cheese/sauce ratio - one of the best I have ever had. We will definitely go back.

This was my first time at Cirella’s and I must say, I was not disappointed. My friend and I ordered the Shrimp Scampi flatbread as an appetizer, which I highly recommend. I had the Paese Salad with grilled chicken as an entree, and it was excellent. My friend ordered Sushi ( yes, I did say Sushi) which looked amazing. The portions they give you is certainly worth the price, as they are not expensive. I would definitely go back there again, as I would like to try some of there other dishes. I give Cirella’s 2 thumbs up! 👍👍

We had a great experience here. The food ( chicken with egg plant) was very good. The service was excellent. The fish( Bronzino ) was also excellent. I would recommend this restaurant.

went on mothers day and they didn't raise the prices like lots of places, could order from regular menu or special mothers day menu. got a big appetizer platter with calamari, mozz sticks, clams and it was good, a little jammed on the plate but it was a lot of food. dinners were all good, some portions a little on the small size, like the veal, i got only four scallops but with the appetizer it was fine for me. the steak was a nice size and very tasty. deserts were good, they ran out of cheesecake which was surprising as we came at 5pm. everyone enjoyed it and the service was excellent, very attentive. would definitely go again.

Haven’t been here in a long time and so glad I returned. I had a wonderful piece of salmon cooked perfectly. For appetizers we had zucchini ribbons- so good. I will certainly return.

One of our go to restaurants. Never disappointed about food. Sometimes screeching noise of loud diners is a turnoff.
