Ceci Italian Restaurant
Great guess!Close to our hotel but just outside of times square. Excellent service. Water glasses were never empty. Food was excellent. Steaming hot when came to table. Manager watching and checking in to be sure all was well. Good variety of wine choices...affordable. Too full for desserts but they looked delicious. We will return!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great FindThis was our second time at Ceci's. It is a nondescript, traditional Italian restaurant near 5th Avenue and 2 blocks from Time Square. The service is attentive and perfect for pre-theatre dining. Service is attentive but not over-bearing. The restaurant was full which tells me that word is getting out among theatre go-ers. You will not be disappointed.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Near theathers on Broadway very convenient5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAway from the noise of Times SquareCeci was a welcome change from the restaurants around Times Square. Only a few blocks away, we were able to have an enjoyable meal and talk with one another without it being too loud. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the service and food were both very good. I would recommend this restaurant to friends.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTheatre district find!We went to Ceci for dinner on a Monday evening - had selected it for the location near the Hilton Hotel on 6th Ave where we were staying. Very pleasantly surprised at the lovely interior and quality of food and service. The price fixe of $29 is quite reasonable for the quantity and selections available. Would definitely recommend it!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed ourselves immensely!Enjoyed ourselves immensely!

Carolyn Nardelli4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOld friendly places are great!We love returning to Ceci's. We used to go to Ciro's on Ninth Avenue. When it closed we did not know what to do. Then we accidentally came across Ceci's. All our friends from Ciro's had opened this new restaurant. The wonderful old specials are back, new tasty treats have been created and the place is jumping because the food and service are that good. May they all live long and prosper!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMStumbled on this via OpenTable.Stumbled on this via OpenTable. Was looking for a place to eat after a Broadway Show. Was not disappointed. My wife had the grilled chicken and veggies. She loved it. I did not even bother looking at the menu as I saw they had Pork Osso Bucco after checking out the website. Again was not disappointed. Nice piece of meat and the risotto was the best I ever had. Staff was attentive. I plan on going back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI was attending a show onI was attending a show on 42nd St - Ceci's was a quick 7 minute walk to the Theater! Why do I mention the location because this gem of a restaurant is the opposite of one of the tourist eateries that surround 42nd St.
I was with a group of 7 people and upon arrival we were seated quickly we told our waitress that we had to be out by a certain time to get to our show and our dining experience flowed accordingly. No waiting for food no rushing to finish our meal everything was timed right.
All 7 of us had different main courses and but all of us had the same reaction to our meals - wonderful.
So if you want to have a dining experience where the food is great the staff helpful this is the place.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a group of six andWe had a group of six and experienced great service and wonderful food!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice restaurant. ExcellentVery nice restaurant. Excellent service and wonderful food. Will revisit again4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely a Neighborhood GemThis is the second time I have visited this restaurant and we enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. The place is quaint and has the atmosphere of a small family owned restaurant. We had a great Italian meal. We give the service a B only because there were long periods of waiting to find the waiter. There was a manager/owner type person trying to help, but that seemed to create more confusion. We would highly recommend the restaurant. Our family enjoyed it a great deal.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth a tryExcellent meal after the show. No rush, food was excellent all around. 4 different dinners and not one disappointment. Service was very good. Excellent food at a reasonable price.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent find!!!Food and service was excellent.
Definitely will return on our future visits to the city. I would highly
