Returned to Citrico's for dinner, first time since new ownership. Food is just as good as it was before. Everyone tries hard to please, and the servers are high-spirited and often amusing. Portions are generous. Space is a bit tight, but the restaurant is not very noisy, which is a definite plus. And it's a BYO, another plus.

It's not just the food, but the people that make a restaurant great. Danny the chef and Trish the hostess are the owners of this quaint spot that MAYBE has 20 tables right on Main Street in Bradley. For awhile, I thought I was back in one of the cafes in Florence. The food was that good. I had a... More

We met some Friend's for dinner around 6:30 just before the place filled up. The wait staff got us started off by opening our wine. It's a byob restaurant. The nice thing is there's a liquor store next to the restaurant. The menu is small and has all the classic dishes you expect. But don't let that fool you.The food... More

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.
