A word from Ciccio
In a former antique-shop located a few steps below ground level, Ciccio is a “little snuggery with a winning air of relaxed authenticity”. This Tuscan restaurant serves cuisine from Florence-born chef-partner Giacomo Romano in a room with rustic fixtures and whitewashed décor, so that the overall effect is of is in “some breezy farmhouse tavern you inadvertently stumbled upon while tooling about the Tuscan countryside”.

The food is deceptively simple. With local fresh ingredients, the chef serves up rustic Italian food that is simple and genuine. Small plates to share and signature dishes of fresh house-made pastas are made daily that aim to bring touches of Florence to this neighborhood hideaway.

    This restaurant is lovely and very charming. It's also got really great food and the chef/owner is from Florence, so, also very authentically Italian.

    I love dining at Cicccio. The chef and his wife have created a wonderful vibe and the food is SUPERB! You are always taken care of and it is always a delight to be there! You leave feeling like you have treated yourself to a mini-vacation! And I only love across the street and it always feels like I have been away on a lovely adventure. xxxCarla

    A friend recommended this restaurant to me for a small group including a friend visiting from Italy. The service, food, cocktails, and ambiance were spot on! Enrico was so friendly and attentive, he really made our evening. We had a meat and cheese platter to share as a starter and each had a different pasta for our mains. I have to mention the lasagna with zucchini and spinach....asd it was incredible. Even our friend from naples was extremely impressed by the quality of food...we will be back soon.

    The food is prepared and presented with care. The waiter's description of the specials made your mouth water. But we did have to specifically ask about the prices for the specials. They were quite a bit more than the menu items. You shouldn't have to pry that info from staff. We had dinner early, so other than loud music it was fairly peaceful. By 7 it started filling up and got lively. It's a small place with small tables close together. Obviously a popular local spot. Would recommend it and will go back.

    Very well-prepared dishes, even if I was a bit surprised at how 'complicated' they were, considering Italian / Tuscanian food tend to have fewer ingredients in any given dish. A very lively place, with a good spirit.

    If you haven't been here yet it's a great find. Delicious Italian that is so light and fresh. Lasagna is delicious! Came back again with another group of friends here. They were equally impressed as I was. This time we had tomato soup, meat plate, more pasta. Every bite we shared was delightful. Next time we will try dessert. Tiramisu.

    A great experience - the place has a great somewhat casual atmosphere but they are serious about what they produce. And the specialty cocktails are knockouts. Describe what you would like and put yourself in Miss Bin's hands.

    This is a fantastic little spot with great food, a creative mixologist, and the friendliest staff in NYC. All if the pasta is made in house and the tiramisu was fantastic. Great seafood also and creative appetizers. Due to a communication mixup, my party was an hour late and they still politely held a spot for us.

    I am so happy to have found Ciccio last weekend. I just moved to this area and have been exploring to find my "go to gem"... The one place I can go to with a late reservation with great food and service away from the chaos of NYC. This is it! We made a reservation on Sat afternoon for Sat night. The venue seems small from the outside but once you are in their is a great ambience and character to the restaurant that makes you feel comfortable. The food was so good that I'm still talking about it two days later. All of their pasta is made in house. We had the eggplant to start, spinach linguini and lasagna, and flourless chocolate cake. The service was just as great. I rarely give a review 5 stairs but this one tops the charts.

    Solid place, lunch, brunch or dinner. Don't miss the vegetable lasagna, of course the meatballs ----- but really, everything is good without being flashy or trying too hard. There's a certain subtlety to flavors. Quality food and bang for buck; good wine list. Noise level may get pitchy when packed but food more than makes up for it. The food is so good that it's energizing and everyone I brought (friends, family, clients) gets swept away anyway and by end of the night, everyone is happy, fulfilled. Service is great; friendly yet still professional. Place gets packed pretty quickly in the night; reservations a must.

    This was my second time at Ciccio, following up on terrific first meal there. Glad to report that the second time around was just as enjoyable. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived. The hosts were lovely and apologetic, even gave us a glass of Prosecco while we waited for lingering diners to pay their check. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly, recommended a great wine. We enjoyed the special house salad, baby octopus and roasted carrot salad, followed by awesome pastas (the beet ravioli especialy memorable) and cod with roasted veggies. Topped off with marvelous Tiramisu. We will be back!!!

The food was fantastic and the staff was amazing. Enrico and his team made me feel welcome from the minute I walked in, until the moment we left. I will be going back for lunch soon to spend some more time at this awesome place and to try some of their fabulous sounding sandwiches.

    It's easy to miss Ciccio, tucked into an alcove below street level. Now that I've discovered it, I won't overlook it again. Lovely little restaurant with unique and flavorful Florentine dishes. My companion--Italian-American and very fussy--raved about the pappardelle with boar. My vegetable lasagna was divine--subtle yet memorable and not heavy. Fabulous cocktails and delicious appetizers, intriguing wine list. The place has a lively vibe but you can still hold a conversation without raising your voice. Knowledgeable and charming service. Generous portions and very reasonable prices.

    I work a block away from Ciccio and frequent the place for lunch and more recently dinner as well! The staff is top :) Always put a smile on my face. The food is also amazing. Two of my faves: insalata carote and the famous meatballs. They're to-die-for! Note: they are one of the few places that makes shakerato's. I will be going back again and again, no doubt.
