Cicchetti always impresses with interesting and off-the-beaten path menu items and wonderful wine list. We went for Restaurant Week and I never felt we were offered anything less than their high standard best. Service is way above average for Seattle, where professionalism can be spotty even in fine-dining establishments. It can be hard to find the balance between cloying, performative intrusiveness and inattentive. The crew at Cicchetti, is very "on point". They have a somewhat cramped house to deal with and seem to be everywhere right when you need them. Our waiter had excellent menu knowledge and a great feel for pairings. Both servers were attentive without hovering; engaging without being intrusive. This is an art. They practice it well at Cicchetti.
Delicious food, great atmosphere and fantastic staff!
We just returned from a trip to Italy in September and had fallen in love with the Venetian tradition of the Cicchetti. Amazing small bites for purchase along with your drink.
So when we got home and saw an article about this place we had to go. They did not disappoint!
Campari and Aperol spritzes were delicious, although a little on the spendy side. The food was the best part though. Fried sardines and figs with chorizo. We will definitely go back here again.
Love this restaurant. That is all that needs to be said.
We went to Cicchetti on a guess, not having been there before. We found the service, atmosphere and good food to be outstanding. It was a great evening. 👍
Wonderful dinner out on the deck. Great waiter with just the right amount of attention
Wish I could give it 6 stars! We had a wonderful time and will be bringing family here to eat when they come to visit.
The wine list is reasonable. We had a bottle of Chateau Pierre-Bise Cremant for $54.00 and it was excellent, about as good as "real" champagne. Mixed drinks also well done for reasonable price. Highly recommend the Cicchetti Trio for appetizer, great to share for 2-4 people, especially the stuffed dates, the lamb dolmathes and the olives. The watermelon salad and the short ribs were spectacular. The pasta dishes were very good but not as special. The creme brulee for dessert was great. We were 4 friends out to dinner together and had an all round great time.
Excellent food, and very helpful knowledgable waiter, Alex.
Excellent service and food. Had a great evening!
I would say that since we sat on the patio the noise level was fine but if we had been inside it would have been way too noisy
The staff is warm, friendly and inviting without being intrusive. The ambience is comfortable and not stuffy. The food was delicious. It was the perfect place to spend an evening sitting outside with close friends and enjoying the Seattle warm weather.
Gracious service. Can’t ask for more. Good food. Unfortunately very disappointing coffee (decaf) and desserts. We will be back for more of the great food.
I love everything about dining at Chichetti- the Mediterranean food is fabulous, the atmosphere is upbeat and friendly and usually the wait staff is great. On the most recent visit we found the young (college age) waiter to be less than interested in waiting on four 60+ aged women. He just had too much attitude for that kind of job. BUT the four of us had fun together and didn’t let it ruin the evening. We’ll go back.
Love this place. Excellent experience across the board.
Drinks were amazing, the service was awesome (not to mention super attractive). Highly recommend the lamb dolmas... ooooh emmm geeeee
Had a great birthday dinner here. Had a nice table for 6 and the meal was excellent. Service was superb. Our favorite bartenders weren’t there that night but the drinks were still great.
We had a nice dinner
Great food. Cozy ambiance. Our bearded server was efficient for the most part. However, seemed annoyed when we enquired about a pending order.
Very pleasant and quiet atmosphere. The waiter and other staff were gracious and helpful.
Love the concept of the Cicchetti menu. The dates with chorizo are still on my mind 3 days later.
1st date .., nice place to take a person on a first date!
Excellent food, service and ambience! Outdoor dining on a lovely Seattle evening!
Amazing food, great service, wonderful restaurant
This little gem is a great find. We will definitely be back. The service was tremendous and the food was unique, inviting and most importantly delicious.
Very nice, we especially sitting outside. We had three small plates and the pork/bacon entree, which we shared.
Food, service, and ambiance were fantastic. Wonderful neighborhood dining experience. Would go there again!
Just increase your prices 3% if you must, but don’t make it a surprise political statement on the bill. Minimum wage is just part of doing business like every other expense. It does not warrant a “surcharge.”
My favorite neighborhood spot. Great food and the best staff.
Seattle Restaurant Week Spring 2019. I’ve been wanting to go here ever since it opened many years ago. This cute little place packs in a lot of tables and people without feeling too crowded. And the ambiance is unassuming, intimate, and perfect for a date night or a meet up with friends. The menu triggers all my good memories of small Mediterranean small plates during my travels. We ordered a starter plate off the main menu: wood fire roasted dates stuffed with chorizo in a pimiento aioli, but then went for the SRW after that. For me: fattoush with gem lettuce, cucumber, red onion, bell pepper, and tahini yogurt dressing; rosemary prawn skewers with creamy polenta, black garlic aioli, charred asparagus, and romesco (one of my favorite SRW dishes); and for dessert artisanal brie, berry compote, and poppy seed lavosh. Hubby had the smoked cod taramasalata with charred scallion, lemon oil, Aleppo, and crisp pita; spaghetti Genovese with arugula-walnut pesto, spring onion, green bean and pecorino; and for dessert chocolate semifreddo, salted caramel, peanut butter, peanut cookie, and candied peanuts. We are so full and very pleased with the meal. Can’t to come back snd order their entire starter menu!
Alex was our server, and he made the experience great for us. He was very knowledgeable about the food - he was well-acquainted with every ingredient and answered all our questions. He described the dishes accurately and we liked our food. It was Seattle Restaurant Week, and we went with the special 3-course dinner. We also added a “Cicchetti”, I.e. small plate appetizer. This was a great value financially,
The food was presented well. My wife had the fattoush salad. I started with the cod tamasalata - these dish names are from memory & I know I’m not getting them correct. My wife loved the crispy Brussels sprouts. I loved the prawn skewers with polenta and asparagus. My wife enjoyed her spaghetti genovese. Delicious chocolate semifreddo & I had strawberry rhubarb mousse & enjoyed it.
Found a parking space close by in the street. Loved the ambience. Kind of a vintage feel.
I was very underwhelmed with the food. The best part was the space. Very cute. I enjoyed that we were seated upstairs next to windows. A lot of good natural lighting in the evening and enjoyable views. The hostess was super friendly. The server wasn't very friendly.
We sat at the chefs table and watched a kitchen team in concert; everything that came out was checked with care! Tough to see so much you wanted, but couldn't order! Our food was really phenomenal, from the muhummara and sprouts (we fought over the last one!) To the falafel and chicken. All we're expertly cooked, the chicken had crisp skin but was so succulent with a slight smoke... falafel was some of the best we've had! Service was so friendly, super attentive, but also relaxed. It all made for a super date night!
There is no easy parking. Be prepared to spend 10-15 minutes to find parking. Our waiter was very friendly and provided excellent food recommendations. The food was very good. The ambiance left a lot to be desired.
Great food, nice cocktails.
the staff was so awesome, food delicious (as always) and made it very special for my birthday.
I have been meeting a buddy at Cicchetti monthly for happy hour for a couple of years! Always a great value and great food. The wait staff is attentive and... of course, know us by now.
A little pricier than I expected, but that's on me/my lack of research ahead of time. Server, food, drinks, atmosphere, all was fantastic and will return.
Food and drinks heaven!
Elevated without being pretentious or overpriced.
