In Florence, small restaurants serve the neighborhood and its residents where the Alimentaris and Tattorias are places for family and friends. Like in Italy, expect to find a little hidden gem, simple and rich. Located a few steps down, on the swath of Sixth Avenue sidewalk known as Father Fagan Park, this little snuggery has a winning air of relaxed authenticity.
Ciccio, is a neighborhood Italian Alimentari (Food) & Bar, featuring the specialties of Florentine cuisine through its quality prepared ingredients. The idea of this restaurant is just the simple elegance of traditional Tuscan food using local ingredients. Signature bread alongside a perfect piece of pecorino, and a glass of Tuscan wine to enjoy alongside Florentine dishes such as: Panzanella, Pappa al Pomodoro, Ribollita. Ciccio specializes in house-made pastas and Florentine favorites with the Tuscan idea that hunger is the best cook and where a “full stomach comforts the soul.”
We have been fans since the restaurant opened; and make sure we have at least one meal there when we are in the Village. The menu is varied; the pasta is always freshly homemade, and the prices are reasonable. Their a-typical lasagna is stunningly delicious. Service is excellent. It's on a pleasant block in Greenwich Village, and you feel that you have been away from the hurly burly of the city.
Love this place- quality food in a relaxed atmosphere and you can get a table.
Delicious fresh pasta, really great. Friendly staff and good vibe
Great service and the food was very tasty. The time it took to get our food was too long considering that there were not very many customers at the time. A little loud, but not too bad, however the seating was uncomfortable and the tables too close together to have a quiet conversation at lunch.
Went for dinner this past Saturday; we were a party of 7. Most of the dishes were very tasty but we thought the portions were small for the price. I had gnocchi with manilla clams. There were about 15-20 gnocchis and about 10 little clams for $23.00. My husband had the pasta with meatballs and he thought the meatballs tasted mostly of just bread. The rest of our party seemed to like what they ate but were not too impressed. If this is a local restaurant for you I would give it a try but if not local would not go out of my way to try it.
We love Ciccio! It is a gem! Absolutely delicious food, great people working there and great atmosphere. Also excellent cocktails and wine list! One of my favorite places!
Quickly greeted and sat - cocktails came right away - no pressure to order immediately- water glasses always filled - food was delicious !
Great food and friendly service in a cute restaurant!! It’s a total win.
Everything tasted wonderful. The food felt very authentic. The people were friendly and welcoming. We definitely plan to go back when we’re back in NYC.
The food was very good and authentic. We had the Gnudi and the potato encrusted fish..both well prepared and presented. Service was a bit slow. Will definitely return.
One of the best places we’ve eaten at in this city. Great service, ambience is nice, not to loud with good music. Food is spectacular as are the prices. Will definitely be back here.
I've been to Ciccio's before and have always been happy with service and food. We had a cheese and meat board and for the second time I was surprised at the size of the board for the price of $21. It is a good deal and could feed 4 as an appetizer. I had a vegetable lasagna that was excellent and rivals my own and others had a seafood risotto and a pasta carbonara. Everything was great. A good bottle of wine at a reasonable price. Maddie our waitress was charming and accommodating. I will return
Ciccio is a small place with a great vibe and excellent food and service. The homemade pastas and gnudi are wonderful and truly special in a city where the competition is tough!
What a charming, authentic Tuscan restaurant! The food was excellent and the wait staff was very knowledgeable and friendly (they also humored me practicing my Italian!). Definitely am adding this to my return list.
Wonderful food. The best part was the impeccable service. Everyone was attentive and everything was perfectly timed!
The food was well-prepared and flavorful. We shared live pate appetizer, and each of us had a pasta dish. My linguine, lemon, caper, ...was so fresh and delicious. My husband thoroughly enjoyed a thicker pappardelle with gorganzola. The waiter's wine suggestion was on point. I'd happily go to Ciccio again.
We enjoyed Ciccio very much. Very authentic!!
Discovered this hidden gem 2 weeks ago. This was my second trip. It’s really good.
Food was ok. Good but wouldn’t go again
My new favorite restaurant. The staff we welcoming and helpful. The food was fantastic. The ambiance was great too.
Super cozy, friendly staff, extremely authentic Florentine food! Great wine, energy and flavor! All around great place.
I’ve eaten here many times, and it is always a great experience. You always eat well here, and the cozy atmosphere and friendly professional service is top of class.
Fabulous food , great service, great value, neighborhood gem.
Third time at this restaurant and truly enjoy the food, considering at had recently visited Italy it was a nice reminder of the food there.
Loved the meatballs! And seasonal salad was amazing! Shaved zucchini and asparagus off the chart!
I thought our server Mateo was terrific - professional and genuinely very helpful. Wonderful food and great restaurant !
The food was absolutely delicious, and the presentation was so well done. Our panzanella looked like a little festive cake. We had eaten here several years ago, stumbling in during a rainstorm, without noting the name. We had a delicious meal, and a wonderful time. I was so happy to rediscover this restaurant, so beautifully italian, several years later. We can't wait to go back!
Good food and drinks
Excellent service, excellent food. Perfect for our date night!
Ciccio is the perfect neighborhood spot - delicious food, warm and cosy in the winter and airy windows open in the spring. Go already !
This is such a great cozy, neighborhood spot. The wait staff are sooo friendly and helpful. They make their own pasta and prices are reasonable - highly recommend!
The Italian restaurant we would all want in our neighborhood.
Great food (any of the specials and the strice and papadella) and drinks (try the Negroni), unique location and ambiance along with wonderful service, all overseen by Giacomo, a kind and caring owner whose passion for creating a near perfect dining experience is self evident.
So much so that when my wife and I were choosing where to go for our 46th anniversary, or when family or close friends are in town, we choose Ciccio.
And it never fails.
Super cute spot with homemade pasta and amazing service.
Our waiter was super knowledgeable about every menu item and their wine list.
A great use of space, you don’t feel crammed in next to the people next to you, even though the restaurant was full.
Great for a date or seeing a friend. I will definitely be back!
Simply terrific food in a great local-neighborhood-style restaurant.
The food was very good. We started with the buratta which included warm roasted tomatoes and pesto - excellent combination. The pasta was fresh with a number of vegetarian options. The service was prompt and attentive. I would recommend it.
Food and staff were absolutely fantastic!
The restaurant is somewhat small but very comfortable and the food is delicious, with the right portion size! Would go back for sure.
Fine people working tat Ciccio who genuinely love being there! Food was outstanding and the feel is from another time, a time when New York was truly energetic and new and creative- totally worth a visit to Ciccio! Grazie Cesare!
I had the gluten free gnocchi and it was truly one of the best meals of my life. Unforgettable.
What a great find!! We ate here last evening before heading to the City Winery for a show. Expectations weren't high but WOW! The cocktails were wonderful but the service and food blew us away. We shared the meatballs, tuna tartare and burrata starters - all excellent! For dinner, seafood risotto and a meat lasagna special were unbelievably delicious. The atmosphere was cosy but not cramped. Loved it and have already recommended it to friends
