The food and service were absolutely excellent. My party of four is vegetarian and they catered to us without any hesitation. Michelle is a true superstar 😍

I sat in a booth, and it was a little annoying that every time the man sitting behind me moved, the whole seat rocked. He didn’t look that big, but I guess the booth wasn’t attached to the floor it seemed. I kept trying to rock it back to make him aware it was moving, but he didn’t get it. I was much smaller than him.

Very ordinary restaurant. Nothing special at all.

Thought that desert would be special where fresh baked cookies and Chef's choice of ice cream was offered . The Chef's choice was vanilla and according to the waitress was always vanilla. Although there is nothing wrong with vanilla, it is the opposite of special.

This was our first visit to Ciccio's/Water and we'll definitely return when we hit Tampa again. What a hopping place! Great fun for a Sunday brunch. Unlike so many restaurants these days, Ciccio's Sunday brunch does not dispense with the normal lunch menu; they just add some brunch specials to the standard lunch lineup. Service was very good. The ambiance was nice--loud and lively. The food was delicious without exception. We shared a lobster sushi roll appetizer with a Sriracha mayo. Great! For entrees we each had the Ahi tuna poke bowl, which had plenty California-style ingredients, as one would expect. Wonderful. Following the main meal, my wife had what I'm calling a "diabolical dessert." It was loaded with chocolate chip cookies, ice cream, chocolate sauce, whip cream and other naughty stuff. She ate half at lunch and the other half later that evening after dinner (in our hotel room). This thing could easily serve four people (my wife weighs 110 pounds soaking wet, so she's just a competitive eater). We highly recommend Ciccio's/Water!

I haven’t been to Ciccio’s for awhile but was eager to return. The place was packed , so I was glad to have a reservation! Our server,Adam, was fantastic! The food was very good, but could have been hotter. Not a big deal. So glad I returned, looking forward to going back.

This was our first visit and we plan to try out the other Ciccio restaurants based on this experience. The food was very good (a little inventiveness to each dish and the portions were filling). The service was also good overall.

We always get a very good meal here. A little disappointed this time, it was good, but not great. They were completely out of avocado - still don’t understand how that happened. They’ve recently updated their menu which included raising prices - wouldn’t mind this so much if they didn’t charge extra for every little thing. We tried their new cauliflower crust pizza - it was good, but very bland. We requested grated parmesan cheese and some balsamic dressing to drizzle on top. They charged us 75 cents each. Who charges extra for parmesan for a pizza? Also wasn’t thrilled with the MMA fighting on the TV screen in front of our table, had to request it be changed to baseball twice before it happened. Overall, not our best experience at Ciccio’s Water.

Went twice in a week. Love this place. Loud music came on half way into dinner though. Wasn’t sure what that was all about. Seemed like they were trying to transition to a club scene which didn’t make sense.

We had a great meal Ciccio's. They even threw in a free dessert since it was our first time visiting. The kid portions were a great size and the staff were friendly.

The bathroom does need a deep clean though.

The little woman (wife) and I have been chronic offenders at multiple locations for over fifteen (15) years and enjoy our experiences. Except for rare holiday victuals celebrations outside the homestead, we dine at something related to a CRG venue EVERY day. However, the local available scuttlebutt about imminent expansion(s)/opening(s) has me concerned. The reason(s) why is/are as follows: Too much growth too quickly does not a permanent venue make. We have been in Tampa since April, 1973 and have seen a lot of dining establishments come and go and don't want any of the CRG startups to suffer a similar fate. Capeesh?

Great food, excellent service! The only complaint I have is the back room banquet seating - the air conditioning vents were blowing right on us And our food got cold very quickly. Maybe point the vents up towards the ceiling vs down on the tables. Other than that, it was a nice date night for my husband and I.
