My husband and I stopped in this cute Italian restaurant last Saturday night for dinner. We were impressed with the ambiance, wait staff (Chris, Joe & John) and the food was delicious. Our first BYOB experience as well but the liquor store next door made that so easy! The owners (Tricia & Danny) went out of their way to welcome us. We had the rice balls which are Amazing! The grilled veggies over field greens, the Flounder Special was cooked perfectly over a bed of spinach, yummm….and dessert was to die for!! A mango sorbet wrapped somehow in white chocolate deliciousness!! If you are in the area Citricos is definitely worth a visit!

Visiting from Houston, a local friend took us to Citricos for what turned out to be a fabulous meal! The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. The stuffed peppers appetizer was an incredibly delicious start. We ordered flounder specials and shrimp scampi. The fish was cooked perfectly – flaky and moist with a delicate lemon butter sauce topped with bruschetta and served over a bed of spinach. The shrimp scampi were also perfectly done with a lemony side of linguine cooked al dente. We finished off the meal with two wonderful desserts – tiramisu and a lemon ricotta Italian cheesecake. Our waiter Chris was excellent. Owner/chef Danny is very personable, not to mention his long and impressive career in the food industry. All-in-all, an excellent experience. I highly recommend Citricos if you are in the Bradley Beach area. And if you’re not, it’s worth making the trip!

Had company in town and decided to stop in for dinner. The liquor store next door provided our BYOB and the food here was awesome! Servers were attentive to our needs, appetizers were perfectly sized and entrees so big they had to come home with us! All together a great experience and will be back!

All I can say is WOW. Citricos just catered our wedding and the food was better than perfect. Having owned a restaurant in New York City, I kind of know a little bit about the business. The owners Trish and Danny are the best , so talented, kind and accomodating. Just had dinner again and it was out of this world amazing. The staff is great and just a fun, relaxed and classy experience.
