We have dined here many times over the years. The new owners have not disappointed the regulars. The menu is similar with some interesting specials. The chef has spent time in New Orleans and I enjoyed his Flounder Cajun style over risotto. They still do the Tour of Italy special dinner. It is a great value. Call for the days... More

Had an excellent meal here. From the appetizer down to the desert selection which there was entirely no room for. Food was well-prepared came out very quickly generous portions and very tasty. The entire staff pitched in to keep the operation running perfectly. Great time would definitely go back

Five of us thoroughly enjoyed dinner here. We had the rice balls, penne Bolognese, chicken parm, linguine with clams and pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe. The crusty bread and olive oil are also delicious. Our server John was professional and friendly, as was Chris. They were great. Can't wait to go back.

My wife and I had an excellent dinner last night, and Danny and Tricia could not have been more gracious hosts. Everything we had, from appetizers to dessert, was very well prepared and delicious. Great food, a warm environment, and BYOB, is a winning combination. Very well done.

Wonderful NY energetic feel!Our server was wonderful. The appetizers: calamari v. good, but the rice balls and special stuffed peppers were super. Our group tried the snapper special, the founder special and the pasta special....all delicious. Citricos is a great place! And a BYOB!

Best rice balls around. Owner not best around. He does not accept gift certificates for Citrico's--should have changed name of restaurant.

We finally returned, loved the food. They're not open on Sundays, and that's our usual restaurant night. Most dishes are in $20 - $25 range, and since it's BYOB it is a reasonable night out. We had the shrimp fra diavolo & eggplant rollatini & enjoyed them both. The sauce was excellent; with a slight bite the way it should... More
