    Puttr27VIP
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    The food was very good as was the service, but I won't go back, except maybe for lunch. The reasons are that the noise level was louder than any restaurant that I have been to in years. I can compare it to being at a wedding with the band playing. You just couldn't have an easy conversation. The other thing that I didn't like was the parking. The lot was small and was ONLY VALET. Ordinarily, this wouldn't be a problem, but I had valuables in my SUV and couldn't lock them. There was no street parking near, so I had to walk some distance. Between the parking and the noise level, it was a turn off.

    Our server was super personable and very accommodating of our party of 8. The serving staff in general was very nice. Our food and drinks were served timely. We had a little bit of a time crunch and everything went smoothly and we made it to our next stop right on time. The menu is diverse enough to find something for everyone. The bowls are awesome!

    As a regular to Daily Eats, I thought I would give ciccio's a try. I made reservations. When I get there, it was valet only, which is complimentary. The problem is I didn't know that, not was there a sign stating that. So I parked my car. The valet guys approached me and said it was valet only and they needed my keys. They then said they worked for tips only..pretty much insinuating I had to tip them after I parked my own car. I walk in and I'm seated at a high top table. I request that we sit in a regular table or booth. The hostess states they have too many big parties and there were not any tables available. 5 minutes later they broke one of those big tables down and started seating people. The server we had was actually quite friendly.

    A girlfriend and I went here for a late dinner on Saturday night. It was her first time so the waitress explained the entire menu and made excellent recommendations. Our drinks and appetizer arrived quickly; she suggested the Dino and Jimmy roll which was excellent!! The table was cleared and then dinner was right out. I went with more sushi and my girlfriend had a water bowl. Both meals were exactly what we expected and very tasty. My ONLY complaint was the loud music.....but it was a Saturday night!! I can't wait to go back and try more things on the menu.

    Another nice meal at Ciccio's, but in an already noisy/lively place, why wedge in live mysic as well…at least bring the music in later in the evening for the bar scene (7pm's a little early)? Hard for our table of 4 to keep from having to yell at the table. Food and service was great, as always.

    Tampa is filled with restaurants of all sorts, from the abundance of your common chains like Outback and Applebees to your tasty mom and pop places of all ethnicity. Ciccios Waters brings a whole other game to the table. Food,drinks,service, the ambiance, all make a positive mind blowing memorable experience. I've gone on a date night with the wife, a couples night out, and with a group of friends. Every time walking out with a smile of satisfaction. Just go, make reservation, and have fun. Thank you to the owners and staff.

    Took my college age son & his friends to this hopping restaurant. Really good vibe to the restaurant. Our server, Lauren, was knowledgeable, upbeat & provided great service. The "Slamgrias" were delicious cocktails. For appetizers, the water guacamole, lobster baked mac-n-cheese & volcano crisps were all wonderful to share. For main courses, the California bowls & the California wraps seemed to be the best choices. Since it was our first time to dine at the restaurant & we were clearly enjoying ourselves, they comped a tiramisu dessert for the table. Will definitely return to Ciccio's/Water next time I'm back in Tampa & also look forward to trying the other restaurants in the Ciccio group.

    We took our party of 11 to lunch in celebration of our son's HS graduation. The variety available on the menu was outstanding making Cicco's/Water a perfect choice for our large group. The staff did an phenomenal job of serving our group and since this was our first time visiting, the management provided us desert to share within our group. We'd highly recommend Cicco's and will visit again.

    It was my first time in to have dinner in the famed SoHo district of Tampa and what a delight. I made reservation for 4 and when we arrived on Sunday, we were the only patrons there. It was Memorial Day weekend and Ciccio's was closed for lunch and only opened at 5 pm when we arrived at 5:30pm. The menu was fantastic. It has something for everyone. My daughter had sushi, her friend had the blacken tilapia, I had the Northern lights bowl which consisted of honey glazed Chilean sea bass, a faro edamame salad and avocado; my friend had the southwestern chicken wrap. It was all delicious. The staff was outstanding. I plan to go back when I return.

    Dined on 5/18/2014
    Our waitress as very nice, but it took three times for them to understand how we wanted things to be prepared and each time took 30 minutes! We felt bad, as did the waitress, and they finally got it right, and she was very good at handling it, but the whole experience reeked of amateur hour, which was unlike our previous 5 visits. Maybe it was unique to our waitress? No. The customer next to us ordered something from another waitress who was not very good at listening and understanding what was wanted. It was something easy like "no butter" or "no oil" or something like that. Despite the acceptable resolution of our issue, we will think twice about returning until they can get a handle on the staff level of expertise.

    Took my wife and my brother's family to Ciccio's for Mother's Day. We had a party of eight which they where able to accommodate easily. I don't think many people know about the brunch offering which was nice for Mother's Day. There was a wide variety to choose from the menu. I got a breakfast burrito with fresh guac that was very good. Everyone else enjoyed their lunch as well which included four picky teenagers. They had live music which was nice, but it was a little loud. We often found ourselves yelling across the table just to talk. The other ding I would probably give is that we seemed to have waited a longer than I would have liked for our food to arrive. I think it would have helped if they could have provided free chips.

    The food and service was wonderful! I didn't eat my entire entree so I asked the bus boy to pack it up to take home... I think he may have missed understood me but after a few minutes I asked our waitress about it. She came back promptly and said they were making up a fresh one to take home because he had thrown out the left over. It was really A small mistake and I was fine going home without the leftovers . I was amazed they gave me an entire entree to take home! So nice to see how you treat your customers! Thank you!

    We booked our reservations through Open Table, showed up on time, and checked in. We had a great dinner. Afterwards, however, I received an email from Open Table to the effect that the restaurant cancelled the reservations. So even though we honored the reservations and had dinner, we earned no points. I called the restaurant and was told that they have not participated in Open Table in several years. This was surprising because they are clearly on the Open Table website and application. I think that this practice is very deceptive.

    I was at Ciccio's on a blind date. I had never been there and chose the place and I am glad I did. My date liked the food and drink options and the service was excellent. The noise level is high when the band plays and that's the only negative thing I experienced there. Ask the staff to surprise you if you are adventurous when it comes to eating, you will not regret it!

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Tampa. The food is amazing! Everything tastes like it's made fresh and from scratch and there are many unique dishes. There is something for everyone including plenty of healthy alternatives (all natural chicken or wheat wraps for a small up-charge). Unlike other restaurants that are similar in style, the portions sizes here are great. I have no problem getting my husband to agree to lunch or dinner here!
