NOW OPEN FOR BRUNCH!

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.”

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!

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!

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.

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

Ciccio's price/value ratio is excellent, and I'd definitely go there again. Be aware, though, that the portions are on the small side. That's a good thing for those of us who could stand to drop a few pounds, but some diners might find such small portions disappointing.

I grew up eating from my grandparents farm in Italy and only family cooked meals. We made wine, tomato jars, fresh mozzarella, homemade pasta, sausage, etc. from scratch as a family. This place is super authentic and super delicious! And the people - from the owner to each staff member - feel like family - so kind and warm. It is my favorite place. And I’m a picky eater too. So if you like good Italian food and some unique dishes as well, definitely try it! You’ll come back more than once.

Snug, neighborly, and relaxed, this is the perfect place for a non-stressful date, a night out with friends, or a meal with your family. The service was attentive without being over-bearing. The food was not out of this world but was it was comforting and satisfying. I'd come back without a moment's hesitation.

The food was subpar- had a signature pasta dish and very disappointing as was the chucuterie we had as a starter - service was not great - wine pour very stingy and very unaccomodating. They would even give me change for a $100 bill and the place was packed!

Ciccio was fine but not as great as I would have expected from other reviews. Italian food quality in NYC is high and this restaurant missed the mark for me (and for my friend). Food was not particularly flavorful nor was it served as hot as either of us would have liked. It’s a very small place that gets easily crowded and loud which would be worth it if the food was delicious. Service was great but we will not return.

excellent all around. i was first guest at 5pm - the lighting was not good but they dimmed lights, set out candles and suddenly was adorable and cozy. music at first was that pre-programming House crap. I asked if they could change it - they were happy to and happy for recommendations: "Kind of Blue" Miles Davis, The rest of night heaven. Service is attentive, quick, kind, intelligent.
