Going out for lunch or dinner? Have someone in your party who wants “Italian” and someone who wants “Sushi?” Who would have thought that you can satisfy both at one restaurant?  Not me, until I had lunch with a friend at Cirella’s several weeks ago.

Although known for their “authentic Italian flavors, with classic and modern approaches to Italian cooking,” (website), they also serve a full Japanese menu. I would not have thought that this was possible, until we met someone I know having lunch there, who said he has been going to Cirella’s for many years and often has sushi. There were many others tables as well that had one person with spaghetti, etc. and one person with a Japanese option.

Cirella’s is known for its “family friendly atmosphere, with a passion for good times and fine food.” (web).  I loved learning  that there is always a family member on the premises to make sure everything goes smoothly!

As I drove into the  paved, parking lot, I saw that there is only one accessible space. As I opened the door closest to the parking area, the street-level, single door, I was in for a surprise.  There are six steps up to the main level. In order to get to the accessible entrance, you must walk towards Broadhollow Road and around the plastic enclosed dining area. The first, street-level, single door gets you into this area and another single door gets you to the restaurant itself.  

We were greeted warmly and shown to a tablecloth covered table. Such a lovely gesture at lunch.  Warm bread was brought to us as we pondered the very large menu (as I said both Italian and Japanese). We are so appreciative of restaurants that still do this, as so many have gotten rid of bread unless you pay for it.  Tables are well-spaced, making navigation and conversation easy.  Our server was terrific. He was quite helpful as we pondered the menu, trying to make a decision. Our Zuppe De Pesce was a delicious choice. Not only was it delicious, it was huge. Even with two of us sharing it, there was enough remaining for at least another meal. Even though we loved it, I decided that next time I will try something Japanese. Tiramisu dessert was amazing!

A  single-occupancy restroom is located in the hallway. Sadly, there is only one handrail next to the toilet. Although the sink is accessible. the mirror, paper towel holder and soap seem quite high for someone in a wheelchair. There is no baby-changing station. 

We were able to have a delicious lunch in a very relaxed, unrushed setting.

As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website,, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
