Ciro's Restaurant Review

: Family-friendly and family-run, Ciro's has always been about generous portions of bold food and innovative twists on Italian cuisine, like the restaurant’s Italian take on nachos. We like to start with the Jo Jo salad with hearts of palm, avocado, pecans, tomato and grilled chicken, before moving on to the linguine pescatore (mixed seafood) in a marinara sauce. Typical pizzas and calzones may be considered as well, and there’s a kids’ menu for the little ones, too. As an after-meal treat, you may choose from the cigar selection and have coffee and a puff on the patio with its gurgling fountains and bocce court. Weekend brunch features delights like the omelet Venice with shrimp, mushrooms and mozzarella, complemented by mimosas and sangría.
