Yes: Ciprofloxacin is part of the fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics and is different than cephalexin, which is a cephalosporin. As always, consult your pharmacist. There are several things your physician and pharmacist need to know to determine if it is safe for you.

Yes - avoid allergy: Your doc probably took into account your Keflex allergy in prescribing Cipro (ciprofloxacin). There are a number of antibiotic choices available for treating various infections. A doc considers many things in coming up with the right therapy. If you have more specific questions, I would definitely call to ask for more information.
