Ciro’s Pizza

This neighborhood pizzeria is famous for its pick-up service, thanks to fast turnaround times, and its central location in Waldbaum’s Shopping Center.

 What Not to Miss at Ciro’s


 The Ciro’s Pizza menu has items that simply shouldn’t be missed! If you head over to Ciro’s Pizza, you’ll find a variety of family-style dishes like pizza and pasta, as well as entrees, salads, appetizers, calzones and hand rolls, burgers, heroes, and baked dinners.

Be sure to try the Chicken Hand Roll—meal enough for several hungry family members—or simply grab one of their famous pizza slices. Try the Chicken Francese with Penne for a full entrée meal, or grab a Hero to-go with varieties like meatball, eggplant, and sausage all hitting the spot. Other popular menu items include Garlic Knots, Baked Ziti with Vodka Sauce, Eggplant Pizza, Buffalo Chicken Pizza, and a selection of Burgers—including the famous Pizza Burger.

Dining In


While there is some available seating inside the restaurant, bear in mind that Ciro’s is mainly a takeaway restaurant. As such, inside seating can be very limited, especially during their lunch and dinner rushes. If you’re looking for a quick bite, it’s a great place to drop by, but might be a crowded choice for large family dinners. Luckily, they offer both delivery and catering menus, ideal for your next big party or event. The catering menu features a selection of family-sized salads, pasta dishes, entrees, and sides—perfect for when you have a big group on your hands!
