Diner Reviews
  • "The noise level was to high could hear the person across from me or the waitress. Ordered cheeses and meats very disappointed w/ discription and condiments."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Great restaurant - the quality of the food is always the same; the spot is good for a quiet dinner for two or for a group. This time we were near a group of young people going to a prom. The noise level was a little higher than normal but you could still hear the people at the table; One of the people we dined with has two sons who are gourmet chefs and she commented on how excellent the duck was; Highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "The food was excellent. Our server, Ashley, was great but the noise was so loud that we could not talk to each other across the table. We will not be going back for that reason. Possibly go there for take-out because the food was great."

  • "The food and service is always great!!!! It is a bit noisy."

  • "My husband and I dined at OC for the first time last week and had an outstanding experience. First of all, the food was amazing, from the shrimp bisque soup, to the filet and scallops, to the chicken saltimboca, to the bread pudding, each course blew our minds! Then on top of the great food the service was also perfect, this was a winning combination in our books. We will definitely be back soon!"

  • "Great to have a local favorite in the neighborhood. It's noisy but happy noise. The food is well portioned and consistent"

  • "Valentine's day dinner for my wife and myself. We had the gouda and fig jam which was superb. We also ordered drinks. What was supposed to be a glass of moscotto came in a small bottle. It was some sort of rose'. The franchaise was bland. They beat the chicken "tenderized" so much it had the texture of tuna fish out of a can. The angel hair "cooked in a white wine sauce" tasted like it just came out of a pot of unsalted water. The steak was not seasoned and the potatoes were undercooked. We had great service and I was ready to say something about it but my wife asked me to just let it go because of valentines day. $74 dollars later I was not happy with the food and we were charged 10 dollars for a mini bottle of wine that wasn't right."

  • "Best food I've had in town. Great for Valentine's day, which is exactly what I needed. Pricey, but absolutely worth every penny."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "When I visited with a group of friend I noticed an item on the menu that we had searched for for a long time. I wanted to surprise my husband and booked us for Valentine's Day. Little did I know that restaurants change their menus for busy days The large rooms make the place a bit noisy but it was a special, busy day. As to the food: I would have liked a bit more balance in the amount of vegetables. It was a load of spinach and only a suggestion of butternut. We'll be back; maybe we can ask for more even veggies next time."

  • "While the food was tasty and the server was attentive it was so loud we could not hear each other talking. Therefore, skip this restaurant!"

  • "This is the best Italian Restaurant in Wilmington by far. The ambience, staff, & food are top notch."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Food was very good...fairly consistent with their first location. Make reservations on the weekends or you'll likely wait. Service was a bit slow, but I think this will improve! Note to perspective diners, this IS a nice restaurant, so PLEASE leave your sweat pants/sweat shirts and hats at home. It kind of ruins the experience of going out to a nice rest when people around you look like they just strolled over from WalMart! While the OC is located in the former o'Charley's building, it is a much nicer/upscale restaurant than that!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We met friends there, and the service and food were good. It was extremely busy, but we received good service"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I am a NY Italian and I can tell you I love the pizza!!! The pappardalle bolognese is the best I have ever had and the meatballs alone or on the soprano pizza tastes like my Grandmothers...now that's a great meatball! The bread pudding & tartuffo ice cream are my favorite desserts."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "we had a great experience dining here for the first time. in spite of negative comments regarding the high noise level and too many tables, we found neither. maybe the management took the prior negative comments seriously and made changes. we plan to return for the italian salad and to try the pizza."
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "This was the worst service I have had in Wilmington. I have been here for about 6 years. We were given drinks at the beggining of the meal and never seen our server again. There was a point when me and my wife sat with food done and no drinks for about 25 min before our server talked to us. The tables where so close together the servers could not fit between them. It was hard have a romantic dinner when it felt like we were dining with the tables to the left and right of us."

  • "Wait staff was very knowledgeable. Food was served in a very timely fashion, was presented well, and tasted really great. We had two variations of the veal."

  • "We went out for dinner I had the flounder piccata it was delicious! The other two ladies had gnocchis the special; one with sausage and one with scallops. We all enjoyed our meals and wine. Service was great. We ended dinner with a cappuccino. Nice decor, a little noisy. Will definitely return!"

  • "If you are in the mood for great Italian food and very attentive service Osteria Cicchetti is for you! The quality in all aspects of the dining experience is second to none. Great addition to the Monkey Junction area of town - thank you."

  • "I always check out new restaurants and was pleased that OC was opening a second location near me. The OC at Monkey Junction seems to be the same - just smaller. I plan on having an engagement dinner there for several friends next week. I"

  • "What there was of it was excellent. At the priice point a small salad would have been good.Good wine list. Way too noisy."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "This is a nice change for the Monkey Junction Area. We needed just this, as there are very few choices of nice restaurants in our neighborhood area. Food was excellent and ambiance was nice. I have to take clients out to dinner quite a bit, so having this choice right down the street from my home is perfect!"
    Dined on 11/12/2013
  • "Great food. Not a great server/dining experience. Appetizer took twenty minutes to arrive after server said it would be right out several times. Order was incorrect for the second time in 2 weeks. Reordered drinks and the server forgot and was reminded. He delivered a drink to me intended for a friend which wasn't a big deal but then the drink ended up on my bill. Just kind if an OK experience. Still the best on this side of town."

  • "I have enjoyed the Forum OC for many years, although mostly at lunch due to the nighttime noise level. This new location at Monkey Junction far exceeded the noise level at the Forum location. The tables were too close together......servers and patrons as well as the owner bumped my chair every time they passed. We were there on a Thursday night and it was packed.....probably because it had only been open a few days and because the dining options in that area are very limited. My friend and I were at a two top table and we had to shout at each other to be heard. On the other hand, our waiter was very attentive. I will go there for lunch, although never again at night!"

  • "Crowded as far as seating. Chair right up against the chair behind me. Noisy. Server forgot to bing vegetables. Food good otherwise."
