Always good. We had a 6pm reservation to beat the beach crowd on a Friday night. Jordan our server was very good. 4 on the food as my mussels had a few tooany that remained closed. Jordan offered to get more as she cleared but I had had a bowl of the chicken Tuscan soup and finished all of the deliciousness so was full. His lasagna was cheesy and really good.

Reservations for Mother's Day, but it was a disappointing experience due to overbooking and over crowding. We were seated in the corner but the room was so crowded it made your trip to the buffet table very difficult. The noise in that room was too much for a pleasant experience. Every attempt at the buffet table they were always out of something or mostly several things. I was told that the bagels were all gone for the lox and cream cheese and wouldn't be replaced. My husband's water glass had something in it which the wait staff recognized so they took it away but he never got another glass even though we reminded the waiter. It was all due to her having so many people, too many people to serve. It was just too much and therefore not a comfortable experience. Wish we had booked somewhere else.

We took the eight members of our family, ages ranging from 3mo to 74, to the Mother's Day Brunch. Absolutely everyone had a great time and there was plenty of delicious choices for everyone! I will DEFINITELY be returning for brunch again. It's not cheap, but not overpriced either. Considering the quality of the food, you are absolutely getting your money's worth.

The food that we ate was delicious, and our server was outstanding. We have eaten Sunday Brunch a few times and have always enjoyed it immensely. However, this time, we had a reservation and went for my birthday and for Easter Brunch after church. It was insanely crowded, tables and chairs were crowding the walk ways and many of the food items were picked over or you had to wait for them to bring a fresh batch. I think that the price ($26.95) was high for how crowded it was. The normal price is $16.95 and the only items I saw added to the available choices were prime rib and lamb. The crepes Grand Marnier were outstanding as usual. I felt as though I had to fight to get food and I finally gave up and didn't eat everything I wanted to because I simply couldn't get to it.

This is the last time I'll visit the Monkey Junction location. We love the original at Mayfair and despite living close to Carolina Beach, we will drive all the way across town rather than eating at the Monkey Junction location. This is about the third time in a row we've been let down. My wife ordered the mushroom ravioli. The pasta was near raw and stretchy like cheese. Considering that she's pregnant and raw pasta means raw egg, that's not great. It was recooked but came out the same way, so I shared my lasagna. Barely an apology and the waitress clearly saw that she was not eating it and was sharing my lasagna but didn't say a word.

Another good meal at OC. Ariel was our waitress and she was excellent. He had veal picatta and said it was excellent. I had a side salad with the pesto vinagarette - delish- and of course the mussels. Red sauce tonite, very good.

We were looking for a place relatively close to where we were staying in Wilmington to have dinner with friends at short notice on a Saturday. The menu was, of course, Italian, with a reasonable wine list. The service was okay, the food was good, the ambiance decent. It wasn't great but it wasn't disappointing. If you are in Wilmington and hungry for Italian, give Osteria Cicchetti a try.

The tables are very close to one another. They are not more than two feet apart. My wife and I want for Valentine's Day dinner. We could not have a propped conversation due to the tables being so close. The people sitting at the neighboring tables to my left and right were actually closer than my wife sitting across from me. I could not hear her over them. The food was decent, not great, and overpriced. The portion of the lobster ravioli was very small. Our server was polite, attentive and helpful. I do not recommend this restaurant.
