Cirella's Restaurant & Bar
Awesome service from our server Cavan!!
Food and service always very good. Fried zucchini terrific and house salad always outstanding. Short ribs with gnocchi was good, sauce was needing seasoning, shrimp with spaghetti squash was also missing seasoning but nice main course. Veal chop Parmesan was amazing as always. Service was outstanding with Caitlin.
Michelle that took care of us was awesome
My Husband and I always enjoy Cirella's. The Food is Delicious and Service is Excellent
Food was okay. Not great. Not sure if the focus is Italian or Asian food. Good location. Not cheap.
On Monday nights it's BYOB--no corkage. So, the place is pretty full on Monday evenings. (Call ahead for a reservation.) Separate room with bar and a few high tables. Extensive menu for Italian and there are two Japanese chefs for a full menu of sushi, sashimi, etc; All very acceptable, and if you're wine drinkers it's a great deal.
Excellent food. Large portions!
La pasta estaba muy grasosa
My friends were in Melville for a conference our waitress, Stacy, was wonderful and the whole experience was great! Highly recommend going to Cirella’s for great food & service! Thanks Cirella’s.
Amazing food & exceptional service!
4 of us met for dinner and we all loved our food. Service was excellent. They gave us lots of attention and then left us alone to talk and catch up. We all four enjoyed our food and we will be back!
Celebrating my relatives 67th Wedding Anniversary
This was our first time there. It had been recommended to us several times, but we never tried it. Well, we finally went and WOW the food and service were terrific. Each appetizer and main dish were wonderful. Our waitress, Michelle was extremely helpful in explaining the many dishes we wanted to try. She was right on the money and split up the appetizers so we could all share in the feast. We will be going back soon. It was an evening to remember!
wasn't impressed...too crowded...too loud...tables on top of each other...food wasn't bad, but there others I've enjoyed much more...
Great service and dinner!
Always consistent , always top notch , never disappoints !!!! Not our first time here , certainly not our last.
From the asparagus pizza that we all shared as an appetizer , to the short rib pasta entree , flawless !!!!
My wife and son shared 2 sushi rolls and the pulpo entree , my daughter and I shared the short rib and steak entrees , nothing but smiles at our table. Capped it all off with the Cirella sundae , a very large ice cream sundae with fresh cookies and brownies tucked in , how can that be bad !!!
The service is really what stands out the most , the amazing food we have come to expect , the beyond attentive service was what pulled it all together and made it such a great evening. Thank you to the young lady that waited on us , you truly went above and beyond , your attention to detail did not go unnoticed !!!
Of course , with all that food , there were leftovers for the next day - which means more smiles - the meal that keeps on giving !!!!
Love it! A real neighborhood restaurant
Met my family for an early dinner before grandson’s hockey game. The waiter was unbelievably accommodating....getting the meal out quickly. Food was fresh and nicely presented.
Good food and you get a lot of food compared to other restaurants
Great vibe, always a good experience. Will be back soon
Great food and great service !! We have eaten there a number of times, we feel it’s very consistent ..
Wonderful as usual
One of the few real Italian restaurants in NY (I´m a European with lots of experience in Northern Italy). As in most American restaurants, you are sitting a little crowded and there is quite an "energetic" noise level.
However, food is really Italian (only the plates are really large, you´ll never get so much food on one plate in Italy, but this might be "American Style" - fortunately the quality of the dishes is not.
If there would be any criticism: The wine list could be a bit extended, especially with Italian white wines (there are many excellent ones available on the market)
Always warm & inviting!
Always a great choice...for business meals or a night out.
Just really excellent Italian food, great service and reasonable prices. We travel 40 minutes to eat there. No great Italian restaurant in Setauket/ Stonybrook area.
Excellent food,service and great time. Never had a bad meal!!!!
Celebrating new job
My husband and I went on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was no busy at all and we were able to choose which table we wanted to sit at. Service was great, food was just ok to me. I had the Zuppa Di Pesce which was listed under the pasta section, however it did not come with pasta. It was also listed to come with "Tuscan Bread" and by tuscan bread, they mean charred regular Italian bread. Drinks were large and strong. The restaurant is nice and intimate but pricey. I don't think we will be returning any time soon.
Cirella’s is the best and our favorite. Our waiter Paul is excellent as well as everyone we have had previously.
Another amazing meal at the beat of our local restaurants (and we have a bunch of really good ones).
Cirella’s was one of my favorite places to eat but recently we went there and bread was stale, salad was dry and chicken was hard to cut
Very disappointed will not go there again
Service was great though.
Tomato sauce was mediocre, eggplant parm definitely not hitting it, unfortunately.
Otherwise, pleasant staff, room was fine.
Grandma’s birthday. Excellent service. Very nice brownie with ice cream for the birthday girl
Wonderful dining experience with great friends. Server was terrific. Portions are generous. We'll be back yet again.
We, an Italian, a Swiss and a German arrived there (I did know this restaurant already) and got a "usual" table. The atmosphere in the restaurant it quite crowded and rather loud.
However, the food is real Italian food (as we know it from Europe/Italy, were we three are living). There were real ingredients, cooked to perfection, not the artifical flavoured out-of-the-microwave scrap, which is served in many restaurant around Melville as "genuine Italian food".
Only the wine list could have afew more items, especially typical Italian white wines and some red specialities would be appreciated as well (but no show-stopper).
Great Service, great food, great people. Always first class atmosphere at Cirella's
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
