If there is a recipe for success, the owners of Ciro’s Italian restaurant in Kings Park seem to have it. After moving to a more spacious venue on Main Street in Kings Park a mere 14 months ago, the owners opened a second location at 470 Wheeler Road in Hauppauge right before Memorial Day.
“It was the right opportunity. I think that the restaurant is a good fit for the area,” co-owner Matt Acerno said, adding that the Kings Park restaurant is busier than the owners ever imagined.
“Business just exploded there,” said Acerno, a 2004 graduate of Hauppauge High School , who is on hand to meet and greet customers at the new location.
The menu that customers have come to know and love in Kings Park will remain the same in Hauppauge plus there’s outdoor dining and live entertainment on Friday nights, Acerno said.
The new place also boasts numerous wide screen TVs and a huge bar where people can gather for Happy Hour, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and enjoy half-priced drinks.
Acerno said the venue in Hauppauge was “already a pretty nice space” that the new owners embellished.
Diners, expect to be dazzled. The architecturally elegant soaring interior is a class act which boasts numerous dining and gathering areas decorated impeccably. Awash in yellows, browns, greens and ebony, it’s the colors of Tuscany served up with a modern palette. Chandeliers cast a golden glow while accoutrements such as gilded mirrors, crystal sconces, recessed ceilings and adept use of molding spell refinement. As in the Kings Park location, vintage-style posters extolling the wonders of wine add a touch of whimsy.
The restaurant, which will do catering in addition to hosting corporate gatherings, is open for lunch and dinner, Monday through Saturday. Although the restaurant is closed on Sunday, it is available for private parties.
