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.

Diner Reviews
  • "Seated quickly and on time, but then took some time to get any attention, water or to order cocktails. Could have been a little better organized/managed in that sense. Food itself was very good. Wish service had been more attentive, though."

  • "I rarely fill these reviews out, but this restaurant and the creative and warm people who run it are a treasure!"

  • "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!!!"

  • "Found this gem on NY Mag's "Critics Picks" list and decided to try it. I always have a good meal at a restaurant they highlight and Ciccio was no exception. 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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Tasty but stingy; for about half the price I would have said yes to recommending this restaurant to a friend. The tickets for the show we saw across the street at the SoHo Playhouse cost us much less! If we had it to do over, we would have gone for a slice of pizza and saved at least 35 bucks... and not left the place still hungry."

  • "An adorable space, just the kind of cozy neighborhood joint you wish you could pop into for tasty food. Unfortunately, most was under-seasoned or poorly executed. Ribollita, pumpkin soup, and the eggplant appetizer were so bland we had to call for the salt and pepper mills; the baby octopus, however, was nicely seasoned and tender--definitely the best dish of the night. Pastas were competently prepared--good texture on the noodles, and meatballs were light. The apple cake--torta di nonna--was embarrassingly under baked, tasting of raw dough. I had hoped for something reminiscent of a Florentine trattoria, but the meal fell short."

  • "Ciccio is a great neighborhood spot, they have simple but well done dishes. It's an excellent place for a low key dinner. My husband and I shared the Battuta which I didn't like very much simply because I prefer hot eggplant. But the dish was very good; very well seasoned and beautifully presented. We had two of the fresh pasta dishes: strisce ala chiantigiana and pappardelle gialle ala cinghiale. The fresh pasta was outstanding, well seasoned, great taste, served very hot, and it seemed like the overall quality of the ingredients was very good. I was happy with the overall value of the meal."

  • "We were visiting NYC for the weekend and picked this restaurant based on reviews and OpenTable availability. The restaurant is a cozy garden level establishment. Our table of four ordered the tagliatelle pasta with meatballs, spinach and ricotta ravioli, squid ink spaghetti, and lasagna. Everybody was satisfied with their meals and each dish is reasonably priced between $15 and $20. We shared a piece of tiramisu for dessert which was delicious. The service was good with a friendly and attentive waitress. The food runner placed all four dishes in front of the wrong person which was comical. Overall, the food and service were good and I would recommend this restaurant."

  • "This restaurant has a great vibe. The food was excellent. We started with roasted carrot salad and meatballs. Both were fantastic. These meatballs possibly may have had the best texture and consistency I've ever tasted. We tasted both the pappardelle and the hand made shredded pasta with red wine. Both were very good. Would definitely go back."

  • "A group of us had a good experience but not outstanding - portions tasty but small, service intermittently focused on customers, and a number of dishes were out of stock which seemed odd. Some smoothness in service/stocking, and more thoughtful and manageable presentation, could be good. Squid ink pasta wasn't a well integrated dish; carrot salad hard to cut and manage. Nice but not outstanding."

  • "We each got a pasta dish. The ravioli were very good, filled with fresh ingredients, but were served barely warm. The plate was cold by the time my friend ate his second ravioli. I got the special pasta- beet noodles like pappardele with pork sausage, brussels sprouts, and gorgonzola sauce. It had great flavor and was hot, but the pasta was overcooked. The tiramisu tasted nice, but was heavier than it should be. It was fairly crowded in this romantic, pretty space on a Friday night, so I was constantly hit when someone walked by me to get to their table. The service was good, though the waiter had trouble listening to my questions about the food."

  • "Dinner with friends on NYE prior to a later event. Even tho we were only people in restaurant when we arrived, owner/waiter kept coming over to our table to take our order (app. 4-5 times). This in spite of the fact that we all in the middle of conversations & told him we were not ready to order yet. Also, once we ordered came back several times to repeat what we had ordered & got it wrong each time. Since this was a 3 course prix fixe with only 3 choices in each course (and only 4of us) it seemed inexcusable to get it wrong. Food was tasty & based on that I'd go back another time to try their regular menu."

  • "Love Ciccio. Started coming here earlier this summer, and as an Italian who doesn't love going out for Italian food when I think I can make it better at home (not to mention I hate Italo-Ametican renditions of Italian food) this place is incredible. Prefect pasta, simple dishes that re mind-blowingly done right. Prices are appropriate. Exquisite meatballs, light and fluffy potato gnocchi, and great meats. When I want pasta...I come here, and I usually bring friends."

  • "Made ressies the day of and felt very welcomed from the start! Small quaint restaurant with a lovely menu featuring authentic Italian recipes. The meatballs are amazing, the ravolis were phenomenal and the wild boar pappardelle was delicious! Wonderful staff, who was quick to pay attention to our wine needs ;) I definitely would go back!"

  • "First time at this great little NYC spot in SoHo. Food was outstanding and authentic Tuscan. Homemade pasta was excellent. A cozy, but not cramped space with a rustic Italian feel. Reasonably priced for a change in the City. We will go back anytime we are in that neighborhood. Service was very good and friendly."

  • "I took a few of my friends to this restaurant, wanting to give them bank for their buck. The ambiance was fantastic, the menu selection was great and the alcohol selection was fine too. Our meals were delicious, and the service speed for the meals was pretty good. The issue came at the end when it came time to pay the bill. We had not requested to split the check, but figured that once we did receive the check that it would be easy so split if we clearly labelled whose meal belonged to who. That was not the case. The server confused who was paying for which meal, and we spent about 30 minutes trying to clear up what had happened. It was quite frustrating Other than this moment, everything about the restaurant was a solid experience."

  • "The ambiance was wonderful and the service exceptionally good. This was topped by the amazingly delicious food served. We had the burrata salad followed by the ravioli and gnocci. All of them were excellent. Finally we ordered tiramisu and got a giant slice that tasted wonderful. Thank you Ciccio for a wonderful dinner."

  • "This is my new favorite place to eat Italian in NYC! the food is delicious, the place is so romantic, great service, good wine... everyone i take there love it too! I had the eggplant for appetizer which was amazing, than the gnocchi which is home made and gluten free and my friend had the pappardella which he said was amazing (i didnt try, im a vegetarian), we also had a very good wine and divine tiramisu in the end. It was suppose to be one of those quick meals and we ended up staying there for 3 hours. The chef is a young Italian and he make everything home made, good old fashion way, and you feel it on the taste. Highly recommended!"

  • "This restaurant is a tiny little gem of an Italian restaurant which reminded my friend if her time in Italy. Everyone dining here seemed to be having the best time! The food was delicious! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that OpenTable screwed up and overbooked the restaurant so that we had to wait over 1.5 hours to be seated. However, the staff did the best they could and comp'd us drinks and appetizers at a little table in the bar area. We were pleased that they made the best of a bad situation. Would recommend the restaurant highly to all!!!"

  • "The service was good, thats all the good i can say about this place. Food and wine are overpriced. Meatballs are made with lots of bread filler, not great. Antipasto board was also not great. Polenta squares were decent. We didnt order entrees or desserts because we didnt want to stay..."
