  • "We have been to the OC several times and have had great meals in the past. This meal was just average. Apps were great, Carbonaro, Alfredo were not very good. We will return, however."

  • "My mom and I stumbled onto this restaurant on a Sunday morning, after just being in town to visit for a long weekend. Unfortunately they didn't open until four or five on Sunday but we arranged our food plans so we could come here for dinner. It was well worth it. I would recommend a reservation. The prices were very reasonable for the large portions. On Sunday when we visted there was a great pre-fix menu to choose from, in addition to the regular menu. Overall great time and food was excellent!!!"

  • "We went here for my best friend's birthday. The antipasto select style was the perfect way to begin the evening. I'd love the recipe for the white bean dip! The mushroom risotto was fabulous. I travel often to Italy and the risotto at OC rivals that of any that I have had in Italy. We only wished that the picatta & marsala dishes had come with a pasta accompaniment. They do not do anything special for birthdays, like an italian rendition of Happy Birthday nor candles...which was a disappointment. A review recommended the croissant bread pudding and while everyone insisted they were too full for dessert....we didn't leave one bite! Overall the food, atmosphere and service were impeccable and we will be dining here again."

  • "The O-C is all around ... well ... great. The quality of food was exceptional - our table sampled everything from appetizers to salads, pizza and entrees and all were outstanding. Couple this with an attentive and curtious waitstaff and they hit a home run for our group. I would also mention that the prices are very reaonable, especially given the quality of food."

  • "We had an excellent experience. With my families varied dietary requirements, the restaurant was able to fulfill all needs with an excellent menu and quality food.

  • "After reading many positive reviews about Osteria Cicchetti, wedecided to try the restaurant for the first time for an anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed. We were seated immediately after walking in the door. The service was outstanding. The food was very, very good. My wife is very picky about the taste/authenticity of her Italian food and she loved it. And last, but not least, the value was very good, with large size portions that leave some leftovers to take home for a midnight snack..... and trust me, you'll get hungry for it again a few hours after eating there."

  • "We moved to the area six months ago and have been to Osteria Cicchetti at least 15 times for dinner and several times for lunch. We have tried many different dishes on the menu and have thoroughly enjoyed everyone of them. The service has always been great and the staff... knowledgable of the food and wine as well. Everything has always been very consistent and would highly recommend this restaurant for a pleasurable dining experience!"

  • "If you've had enough "southern cuisine" and you need some good Italian food, then go to OC. While it's not Mulberry Street, the pasta and sauce (or gravy if you prefer) were outstanding. Crusty bread, EVOO for dipping and a robust pour in the wine glass. Portions are generous; wood fired pizza almost as good as home in Jersey. All I needed was my girl Lydia and I'd never know I I was in Dixie."

Our server was very polite and knowledgeable. He was even willing to ask the kitchen to make a special order for me. Food was awesome, wine was tasty. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "We had a wonderful meal. My wife had the gnocchi and scallops and I had the fish special of the day. Both were perfectly prepared and wsd served in a flash. What more could you ask for at a restaurant?"

  • "We were greeted by our server Caitlin who set the tone for a great dinner. She was friendly, courteous and extremely attentive. We each had chicken francaise which was delicious, the chicken very tender and enough left to take home for another meal! The only negatives were the calamari appetizer was only OK, some of the pieces a little tough and rubbery. The coffee tasted a little stale and not hot enough. Overall we loved the meal, the atmosphere, the service and the very reasonable cost. I have already told some friends about our dinner and strongly recommended it. We will, of course, be back."

  • "Reliable, excellent food. Great wait staff. I have a pet peeve about dishes being cleared from the table when others at the table are still eating. They did this here including bringing leftover containers to the table before others were finished. Makes the "slower" diner feel awkward and the atmosphere rushed."

  • "I took my wife here for Valentines Day and we had a great time. The food, service, and atmosphere was exactly what I was looking for, and we are definitely going to return in the future. That chocolate cake was probably in the top 3 chocolate cakes I have ever eaten. Definitely worth the hour drive."

  • "We enjoyed the entire experience. The only (small) disappointment to us was we brought our glasses of wine from the bar and finished the wine half way through the meal and were not asked if we would like another glass of wine. The food was exceptional. Our server was very friendly . Still a great experience Thanks"

  • "The one extremely hard bread choice was difficult to break, let alone chew. The other was great. The calamari was was chewy and the breading fell off as the fork touched it. After the bread and appetizer, things were fine. The tortellini and the eggplant were very good. We will be back again."

  • "scallops were raw, sushi grade raw. My wife's food had a pot full of noodles that lacked other ingredients. It had a bad taste & smelled like dirty feet, just saying. Maybe that's what the sauce or dish is suppose to taste and smell like? I wouldn't order that again. The catch is my wife couldn't figure out what to order and I ordered for her as to be the man of the house and when it came out I was obligated to give her my risotto minus raw scallops and allow me to finger through the pasta bowl she ordered. I told the waitress about the scallops and the manager took it off of the bill and comped us a dessert for our troubles. Service was excellent, just wasn't our night to dine in at OC. If I go back I wouldn't eat the same dishes....."

  • "My wife and I took our three kids for dinner at around six o'clock on a Saturday night. They seated us quickly, and it took a long time before a waitress noticed we were there. The food was good. We tried the pasta,pizza,meatballs and some salads. Everyone agreed it was good but not great Prices are reasonable."

  • "We had a 7:30 reservation on Saturday,1/24/2014; although the restaurant, we were in at our table by 7:35. the wait staff was friendly and efficient! the food was exceptional! Wine list was varied and reasonable! The only issue was the couple in the table next to us. The couple was older and probably experiencing hearing problems; they shouted at each other throughout our meal! Otherwise, the meal was great, fantastic service and great ambiance!"

  • "OC was a delicious yet reasonably priced Italian dining experience. Our server was knowledgable about the wine list and very personable. The linguini with clams was fantastic and the pasta was chock full of vegetables and meat! We were not big fans of having to order wine by the 1/4, 1/2 carafe or by the bottle, but the wine we order was perfect! Great overall dining experience!"
