We met our former neighbors for lunch one day & enjoyed the restaurant & meal so much that we brought my brother & sister-in-law for dinner the next evening. Food was delicious and everyone that came in contact with us was so friendly & knowledgeable. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Very good food, great service, a nice neighborhood old- fashioned Italian family restaurant. I came on a weekday evening and was willing to drive the hour it took me to get there.

Wow! I picked Cioffi’s based on OpenTable reviews and I NOT disappointed. The restaurant seems a bit old-fashioned and humble and I feared I might get the usual run-of-the-mill cafeteria style Italian food. Al contrario! The garlic knots were delectable: just enough garlic and pulled apart like challah or pretzel bread. I tend to skip the bread because it’s not worth the empty carbs but it was superb, not airy and dried out or insubstantial but weighty, not doughy. I never eat calamari unless it is fried but the waiter recommended seafood Fra Diavolo (how did he know?!). The calamari was perfectly prepared, tender and not rubbery. He also recommended to skip the pasta but I ordered it since I thought I would get a small portion of seafood: wrong again! My food was hot, flavorful and plentiful; without eating the pasta or the broccoli I could only finish half my entree. The broccoli was basic and uninspired, not the star of the meal, but it was fresh and green. My friend had the veal Marsala with plenty of thinly sliced veal and gravy with mushrooms. The service was genuine and warm, and even though we stayed long after our bill was paid and the table was cleared, the staff was not rushing us. The waiter continued to offer extra water, coffee, anything else. Altogether a charming restaurant with delicious food. Thumbs up.
