The pizza is the only reason to go but worth having. If you go with the expectation of eating good pizza only, you will be okay. But it's more of a take out place than a sit down with great atmosphere.

My 2 friends and I went to Ciro's on a Saturday night around 12:20am. They didn't have any plain cheese pizzas in the window. Fine. But when we asked when the next plain cheese pizza is going to be made, this threw the employees at Ciro's for a loop. You would've thought we asked them for a pizza they've never heard of before...like pizza with apples on top or something. The girls at the counter didn't know, and when we asked if they could make one for us, they asked the guys making the pizzas, who in turn just shook their heads. What? You can't make a plain cheese pizza? Finally we convinced them too (as the line behind us was growing longer), and when we said we wanted to order and pay for our slices, they said they couldn't do it until the pizza came out. At which point of course we would have to get back at the end of the line, wait in it, just to get up front and potentially have there be no plain cheese pizza left. At that point, I went to go grab my one friend who had ordered the specialty slices that were available in the window, and who was eating it in the seating area, and also to use the restroom. Well, they close the area off at 12:30am. So, I couldn't go back to sit with my friend, nor could I use the bathroom (even if I had pizza in my hand, it didn't matter. They just close off the seating area and restroom at 12:30). At which point we left and went to Hoboken pizza in PB, who gave us a fresh slice of plain cheese immediately, and I was able to use the restroom. I can't believe Ciro's is able to stay in business considering how clueless and rude the workers are. After reading the other reviews, it seems I am not the only one who has experienced this, and not only at the downtown location either! Too bad, because I liked the pizza last time I ate it. Now I'm boycotting and telling everyone else that I know to do the same.

Pros: Pizza isn't bad, if you get what you want

Cons: The people that work there

Usually get Bronx Pizza in Hillcrest and should have done it this time. Ordered 2 pies, 1 cheese and 1 Sicilian with sausage. First the Cheese was cardboard, overcooked and cold with no sauce(and I don't like allot to begin with) cheese was burnt and again I say was thin cardboard. Sicilian was awful the wax paper they put on top pulled all the cheese off and the sausage was like rabbit poo, just like Dominoes. We never do this but we actually called and got our money back, threw it away and ordered Bronx.

just recieved another pizza that should have been left in the oven another 5 minutes. The store on university is a mystery. Sometimes the best new york style pizza in town and sometimes an under cooked mess. For $20.00 bucks I'm glad to wait an extra ten minutes. Slow down and do it right, people will wait for quality.

My first experience was not very good. I called in the order and repeated it several times because the girl on the phone just didn't get it. I did a half pepperoni, meatball and half pineapple not too hard with a side of 10 wings. I went to pick it up and the girl at the front was on the phone with another customer rolling her eyes and being rude saying I don't know what you are tyring to order, big surprise. She finally acknowledged me and got my pizza. She said half pineapple and I said the other half was pepperoni meatball right. She said yep this is it. The total came to $27.50 which seemed a lot for a large pizza and 10 wings, so I asked for the reciept. Upon review of the reciept I was charged for full toppings of pepperoni and meatball and $2.00 delivery fee. Looking at the pizza it was not made right all pepperoni and meatball, half pineapple. So, I went back to the counter to get the pizza remade (girlfriend is vegetarian so had to get a new pizza). The girl never looked at me because she was busy being rude to the next customer on the phone. I went over to the manager making pizzas which was busy telling some guy, "If you want a job here don't come in here drunk and being rude" I guess an insight to the quality of workers. I ended up getting the pizza re made, went home and now noticed there was no dressing with the chicken wings as ordered. The pizza was not very good at all. Half the cheese on the pineapple side was missing, looks like they threw it into a box and the cheese went all to one side. I worked at a pizza shop in high school and college, and this was on my bottom list of pizza quality and service. I recommend going to bronx pizza or woodstocks. This was my first and last experiece with this pizza chain.

I placed a simple phone order with a guy that should have played in "Half-Baked." After a long pause he took my name and told me 20 minutes. I walk all the way down there (7 blocks), arriving 30 minutes after I called, and waited for a few minutes before being acknowledged. When I finaly had his attention I said I was there to get my order. His response: "Oh.... I'm sorry (he wasn't very believable), I didn't even start it yet.... I got busy." I left my Coke on the counter, walked out, and took my business to Del Taco where they were happy to take my order AND make it in a timely manner (I was hungry!).

I have gone to Ciro's twice and was dissapointed both times. Their counter service/register girl was slow, rude, and pretty much ignored us. One of the other people took our order and I guess they mostly sell slices because they couldn't understand the concept that we wanted to buy 2 whole pies. On a fairly slow night it took over 30 minutes to make our pizza. I think that is way too long for a mediocre product. Bronx Pizza in Hillcrest is much better. I lived in NY for 25 years...I know pizza. This place would never make it in NY. It's way to slow, rude, and the pizza is not that terrific. This one already has 2 strikes from me, I'm not willing to give it another chance!

Anytime you are hungry and walking past this place, I highly recommend stepping in side and molesting a pair of slices and washing it down with a drink.

The pesto pizza was so so so so so sooooo good. I was a little worried when I saw that is was already made, but they don't just give it to you that way, nor do they "pop" it in a microwave. They literally put it back in the oven. THAT'S
