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, that border 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.”

Ciccio Ratings and Reviews
Best fresh pasta I've ever had. The Insalate Carote was outstanding and the signature pasta (Strisce) was cooked perfectly and had lovely flavor. Other diners with me sang the praises of the black squid ink risotto and the pappardelle. We also agree that the negroni's are quite tasty. When we first saw the restaurant from the outside we were uncertain, but I have to say that it was one of the best meals I've ever had in Manhattan. Service was friendly and attentive. I definitely recommend!
Dinner was nice but we had heard so much about this place that it was somewhat disappointing. We had a reservation, but when we got there the hostess was not welcoming at all, the affordable wines leave a great deal to be desired, and the food was good but less than spectacular. I had the pappa al pomodoro, which was a bit dull, and the strisce, which were good but arrived at my table lukewarm. My husband had the carrot salad, which was actually very good (probably the best dish at our table), and a mussel pasta, which was just standard. Our friend had the chicken live crostini and the veggie lasagna, and both were OK but not spectacular. Overall, it seemed more pretentious and expensive than what they actually sell.
The welcome was warm, the buzz was lively, the menu had some interesting selections, the waitstaff was pleasant, the tables were close together. Everything felt unusually authentic. We only wish there had been more selections among the main courses. But the signature pasta dish was unusual and tasty, if a bit pricey, and my friend loved the chicken.
A tucked away gem in SoHo, that is worth a detour. Artisanal pastas prepared on location with aperitif and committed to Italian craftsmanship appetizers. When our table was not ready on time, the manager served us complimentary Aperol. Definitely will return on many occasions.
Just like home? No, better. The dishes are not just delicious, they also look very special. Inventive food design in a old-bistro feeling place. Come down four steps into the clean and woody dining room. Seats 25 or 30 at most. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Ahhhh Ciccio............I could literally eat here every night of the week. Ciccio is absolutely the BEST Tuscan cuisine in NYC and at a price point that is just amazing. My favorites are crespelle as well as artichoke lasagna; all the pasta's are stunning though. The flourless chocolate cake (with whipped cream) is really memorable. They have a great Barolo at $80 a bottle - would be priced more like $120 elsewhere. The wait-staff are really kind - efficient, but not in your way at all - they have been there since the restaurant opened and their easy comfort shines through. Though Ciccio is in a basement locale - you wouldn't know it once in - it's quite romantic/ elegant - very refined lighting really makes it feel like on oasis yet it's right on 6th ave in Soho. If you can't spend a summer in Tuscany, you must visit Ciccio often :)
Worst service I can ever recall. We came in last week for dinner with a 7.45 reservation. At 9.40, we were asked to move, having not even had time to order dessert!
The owner of the restaurant did not even seem that apologetic about it and did not offer us a drink or anything. When I complained, he simply said 'this is normal.' No it is not! I dine out with clients and friends at least 3 nights a week and never has this happened!
To compound the issue, when we left, he simply said "I do not need your custom." Which is fortunate as he is not getting it again.
I live in LA and make sure I get to Ciccios every time I'm in town. The pasta is delicious, and made in house. The drinks are great, fantastic Negronis. The meatballs are my favorite, as is the ribolita soup and the vegetarian lasagna. The staff is wonderful, and the dining room is cozy in a good way, and charming.
Ciccio emailed me twice and called my cellphone to confirm the reservations made through OpenTable. Though when we arrived, we were left waiting ONE HOUR for a table to open for two people. They did not honor reservations made that evening for 9:30pm. We could have decided last minute to dine at Ciccio, and it would not have made a difference.
