I went here a few weeks ago when I did not have Yelp yet. We walked in a bit before 5, just as the shifts were changing, so there was a little wait before we could order, but they were very nice about it and we were in no rush. We had the mixed appetizer that had goat cheese squares and pickled cauliflower and savory little ham bits; ... read more

Cecilia's is a great destination for its wonderful patio, Martini Mondays or Happy Hour and lunch or dinner any day. Happy Hour is always busy. Customers can purchase delicious pizzas or full course dinners. Sunday brunch is a special treat!!

Delicious as usual.  Server was excellent and very patient with a group of six women who haven't seen each other in a long time.  :-)Would highly, highly recommend!

We ate brunch at Cecelia's while visiting Buffalo for Garden Walk. It was a busy Saturday because of the many visitors for Garden Walk. The three of us had a Mimosa Brunch. The food was wonderful, the service was fine, and the outdoor seating in the shade was definitely a plus on a hot Saturday at noontime.

Hot older women like to hang out here. They're into younger guys and willing to have extramartial activities.

Everything was great, from the drinks to the apps and the main dishes. Toasted gnocchi was incredible. Only issue was figuring out where the hostess was so we could sit down after making reservations.

My stomach still feels bleh from the calamari I ate here, but other than that, things weren't too bad. I came here tonight with friends as someone in our group knows the DJ.

We live in San Antonio, Texas.  We were staying on Elmwood last year and discovered Cecelia's Ristorante.  I had to return this year for their Veal Piccata, again.  We enjoyed this place so much that we hosted our Buffalo friends here, three other couples.  Good time was had by all.  Cheers!

The food is great! The hostess was terrible at explaining the reservation system for the patio and overall not friendly, she should not be the first person a customer meets.

So we went to Cecelia"s for dinner for my favorite "fra diavlo" which was delicious BUT what a total disappointment. Understaffed for servers and cooks. Did not bring our bread until we were done with dinner. My husbands dinner came out late, gave us the wrong check, too many excuses. The portions are smaller, too small for the cost ... read more

From start to finish this restaurant was fantastic! Can't beat the patio in the heart of Elmwood Village. I had salmon on couscous that was seasoned perfectly. My husband had veal Cecelia, which he said was delicious also. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Looking for a fun, huge patio in the heart of Elmwood? This is it. I've been to Cecelia's in the past for their cocktails and enjoyed it but never had the chance to experience their food.

Given the location and how good the food is, I'm not sure why Cecelia's isn't routinely busier.  Still, I do love that you can get a table pretty much anytime.

Went to Cecilia's for brunch. Server was friendly and attentive. Food is always great here. Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because my omelette was not hot when it arrived, and the server was not as attentive toward the end of the meal. The entire table probably would have had another mimosa if he had asked!
