- I have been a customer of Cinelli's at North Hills for a few years now, and have always enjoyed the quaint atmosphere, good food and friendly service. Recently I have noticed some positive changes in the food presentation and flavor! The pizza is as good as ever, but don't forget to try some of the pasta and salad dishes that seem to have a new flare. My taste buds have never been so happy. – msmulloy, Citysearch
Cinelli's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria
The cooks at Cinelli's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria craft New York-inspired classic and modern Italian entrees, including tilapia encrusted with crabmeat, filet gorgonzola, tortellaci—a homemade beef and veal dumpling—in a wild-mushroom ragout with truffle oil, and a goat-cheese-stuffed portobello mushroom topped with arugula, fire-roasted peppers, and balsamic reduction. Their success has allowed them to spread across multiple locations, each of which also serves New-York-style pizza.
