Very good brunch spot. The highlight is the bottomless mimosa special.  Cecelia's has a cheery atmosphere and attentive staff. It seemed like the second I finished a mimosa our waitress was at the table! The food was good although not anything exceptional. Overall I had a great experience and would recommend Cecillia's.

Charming Italian
I tried a first... cold soup and to my surprise enjoyed the taste. The bread is good and it’s a thinner bread not thick and doughy. The salad I ordered was completely yummy and a light dinner. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs which...More ... read more

I stopped in on the 4th of July trying to get a little respite from the suffocating heat.  We sat at the bar and were quickly greeted by the bartender, she was so friendly and knowledgable and was eager to help us make selections.  My guest and I tried 2 of the 3 special holiday martinis that were offered and they were delicious.  I ... read more

Don't go during the 4th of July unless you're just getting drinks. I understand it's a holiday but they were so understaffed and the staff that was there spent majority of the time in the back. I don't know whose training the waiters but the gentleman whose only job is to literally clear tables and pour water made so many laps and li ... read more

High School Reunion weekendFour for dinner. Must recommend the Veal piccata, and who doesn't like a great Martini? Our server was Sasha, I kept thinking she might be the former Presidents daughter, she denied it, but she did give us the Presidential treatment.

We happened upon Cecelia's while checking out Elmwood Village. We got a lovely shaded table outdoors. We started off with a lovely bottle of Hess Chardonnay from California. Next, we ordered the mussels with shallots, wine and breadcrumbs. Now, we like mussels. We order them just about every time we see them on a menu. But these were ... read more

Excellent food. The antipasti was delicious. Very friendly waitress and fantastic experience all around. Will definitely be back.

Great classic eggs Benedict. Warm and inviting, but the orange juice was not great (maybe only intended for their bottomless mimosas) and coffee was also the worst standard drip.

This is my go-to brunch spot. Bottomless mimosas for $10, and their eggs benedict are always fantastic. The BLT and brunch pizza are good options too. And for what you get, the prices are very reasonable. Love Cecilia's!

The best brunch ever! Bottomless mimosas, AND cannoli pancakes?! What's not to love? Call days ahead and make a reservation. This place is always understandably busy at brunch time.

Here from outta town traveling for work and wanted to try something new. Very cute place. Extensive martini menu, some nice specials and traditional menu with a few exceptions.

This is definitely going to become a regular spot for me. We came here on a Friday night, just to grave a bite to eat. We weren't super duper hungry l, but wanted something to hold us over.

My husband and I visited her last night for a celebratory dinner and were a bit disappointed. We were there for over an hour before our entrees arrived and the food was only ok. I ordered the linguini with clams and they were very overcooked and chewy, but the rest of the flavor was decent. We were later advised by our waiter that th ... read more

One of the only restaurants in Buffalo that actually has brunch on a Saturday!
