Excellent gluten free diningC19 did a great job with our food, including having gf pasta on the menu. The food was excellent and we liked that some of their food was locally sourced. Yhe waiter was super attentive. The only thing we wouldn't recommend (on the gluten front) is the homemade pizza crust; it was dry.
It was really quite slow though and we had a 4 yr old with us. Next time we'll ask for her food to come out first.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice. Food was creativeVery nice. Food was creative and delicious. Portions were perfect. Very enjoyable6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMbetter and betterWe've been eating at Cichetteria since it opened, and it has gotten better and better. Last night the broccoli rabe, Venetian meatballs and charred Spanish octopus got the meal off to a great start. One of our group was thrilled that they offer gluten-free pasta. Although the Risi e Bisi first arrived without the Bisi, the second try was very good as was the wild mushroom risotto.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice CuisineGreat small plates for sharing - the scallop appetizer was AMAZING! and so was the nutella bundino dessert! Order both if you go!! :) We also had the white pizza with figs and mint which was a unique combination. The gnocchi was very good as well. Definitely recommend going and sharing a bunch of small plates. Nice quiet place a block from Rittenhouse Square.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA GemLove this place and I've been here several time. The food is always delicious!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, very attentiveExcellent food, very attentive service.
I had Octopus and wild mushroom risotto. Both outstanding.
My husband had Caprese Salad, dicey in April, and a flat bread pizza. The combo of figs, prosciutto, mozzarella and mint is sheer brilliance.

The menu is mostly farm to table, which means virtually everything is locally sourced. This is something I especially loved. I ordered the pasta and our party had several appetizers. Nothing disappointed...4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery hospitable restaurantVery hospitable restaurant with innovative small plates. Fun for those seeking to get away from the tried and true South Philly Italian meal.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe servers were friendlyThe servers were friendly and helpful. The risotto was excellent as well as the salads. However the vongele was too salty and the pasta was minimal in size portion. Overall, a very good restaurant.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and friendly serviceAmazing, fresh, farm-to-table local fare.

Been there before and will definitely go back again!2/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMolto buonoChef Andrea and the staff here is AMAZING. Dining Solo before the ballet and I decided on the 5-course tasting menu. The chef came out introduced himself and told me what he would prepare for me. It was awesome. From the Tomato Vegetable Soup, Octopus, Pickled Scallops, Monk Fish in a white bean ragout, and Tiramisu. This was a spectacular meal and I enjoyed the Clover Club.
My only regret was I had to rush to get to the ballet 7:30p. I will most certainly be back for the meatballs (which I hear are the best in the Center City) and make time to savor an entire meal.2/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable happy hour and dinner.Enjoyable happy hour and dinner. Very attractive place, average food, good wine, excellent service.2/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the place and the food,Love the place and the food, which is why we keep returning. And our server last night,
Kevin (new to us) was lovely. But the NOISE level became VERY unpleasant halfway through our meal, when a four-table of loud-mouth women completely swamped our ability to hear each other speak. Can't C19 do something to ameliorate this problem?1/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
