Just had lunch at this restaurant today. My best girl friend had some gift certificates so thank goodness she bought. We kind of went overboard ordering so the tab was significant to say the least. But all of it was excellent, great Reuben sandwich we shared, the Sicilian calamari was delicious and we splurged on cheesecake which we had to bring home.
You can get a sandwich for about the same price as other sit down restaurants here in town. The dinner menu is terribly over priced.

We stopped to have appetizers and wine after leaving the airport. We had Gouda Steak Sliders and Spicy Meatballs. Both were very good. The wines were fresh. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We also got complimentary garlic bread baked fresh.

After a really good dinner experience here a few months ago, we decided to see how they did lunch. The answer: Okay but not great. Especially for the price. My wife had a chicken Marsala which she said was okay. But the salad did not precede the entree. They came together. I had a meatball Parmesan sandwich which, again, was okay. Bu the crinkle-cut french fries had no taste whatsoever and seemed to have come out of a bag of frozen fries. We were very surprised, given our thorough enjoyment of our dinner here. The place is till very pleasantly appointed and, for me, it's not a real Italian restaurant without Peroni on tap; which they had. But this was just not as sharp as dinner. Different staff? Different manager? Who knows? We will be back again for dinner because we truly want to have a good Italian meal from time to time. It would be nice if they could produce the same at lunch.

Went to Citrola's for our daughter's graduation dinner with friends. Food was great, service was excellent. Atmosphere is very nice. Would recommend as a place for celebrations or just a nice lunch/dinner out. Our party had 10 people and was easily accommodated.

There were about 25+ having dinner on a weekday. They have recently added a wall that helps to define an area for larger groups but it would have been nice to have a more intimate setting. The tables were set against the walls so that you were far, far away from the rest of the group. Everyone ordered individually and the portions were quite varied. Pizzas seemed huge while some entrees seemed skimpy for the price. Garlicky bread knots were plentiful and very good. Salads were just lettuce, needed some additions, imho. Considering the size of the group and the variety of dishes we were served in a timely manner. Not sure if this is my go to place for Italian in town. I'd have to try the stromboli or pizza I guess before deciding.
