It was our first time at Osteria Cicchetti and we loved it! Our server was awesome and very attentive to our needs, the food was awesome....highly recommend the seafood canneloni! The atmosphere was like you were in an italian kitchen....very homey and I loved watching everyone work and do their job. We also had the peanut butter cake....highly recommend that too. We will definitely be back and recommend to all of our friends and family!

We (2) dropped in for an unhurried dinner after arriving in town after a long day in the car. Osteria Cicchetti is n accessible large, central storefront in an upscale strip mall. We were promptly seated, the staff were all pleasant people; we had an enthusiastic young waitress and plenty of wait staff. We were seated in the huge main room with a view of kitchen. There is also a big side room plus a large and loud bar area. The atmosphere is lively with limited lighting.
They offer a full wine list, the appetizers and menu are nearly exhaustive and Italian - this is a place to languish with friends, although costs add up. Our drinks, calamari, and the veal and fish entrees were very good and service was attentive. We had no complaints. We are still in the exploratory stages of our move to near Wilmington, so everything is a new experiment. We had a bit more travel after the meal, so we limited our time, alcohol and food volumes. However, recycling back to Osteria is quite likely.

Our waitress never smiled the whole hour and 1/2 we were there. The Caesar dressing tasted like mayonnaise. When we walked in, we smelled the wonderful smell of garlic, but the food didn't have much taste at all. Our reservation was perfectly honored, though.

Everything was wonderful and the food was great. The only let down was that I reserved a table for a date. The table I was taken to was not all user friendly. My date sat on a chair and I sat on a bench. Would have prefered a normal table with two or four chairs in a romantic corner.

The other food we ordered very was good. However, over the years we have been going to this restaurant, the eggplant dishes have a lot less eggplant and a lot more cheese. The eggplant dishes used to be the best in town, but not anymore. We will return continue to go back but just not as frequently.

I have been coming to Osteria Cicchetti for 3 years now each time I am in town. I usually visit three nights in a row during the week I am here. I am of Italian descent and enjoy the food immensely and the service is quick and amiable. Bravo e piuttosto delizioso!

We have been many times. OC is a great value. We had reservations on a Saturday night, and it was packed. We noticed a table in the bar area and asked if the menu is the same in the bar, it is. We gave up our reservation and sat in the bar area. It was less noise than the main restaurant. The server was Excellent. She was funny, engaging and made good recommendations. Don't be afraid to sit in the bar area, even when it's not crowded in the main dining room.

My wife and I ate here last week. It was noisy but that is of course not the restaurant's fault. Service was a little spotty, and my wife swore that something bad must have happened behind the scenes. My dinner was pretty good actually, my wife's was a little so-so. Our biggest complaint was that our entrees came out way too fast - my wife hadn't even gotten served her first glass of wine yet.

We always go out to dinner several times with friends who join us when we spend a week at a cottage at Wrightsville Beach. We have always gone to Boca Bay, and heard that the Osteria was owned by the same people. After checking the menu on line (two of us eat g/f) we decided to try it and asked for a quiet table, as one of us wears hearing aides - probably several of us should! We were seated appropriately for our request, all 8 of us ordered different dinners, and all our dinners, salads, and the service were outstanding. We'll be back next year, God willing!

Outstanding dining. Hidden gem in a plaza you would not know existed if it weren't for Open Table. Excellent portion size and incredible choices on the menu. Chix parm was amazing as was the Chix piccata. Fantastic bread basket and cannoli is a must try. Cannoli dessert consists of three mini cannolis which were amazing to top off a fantastic dining experience.

Service was excellent and very timely. The atmosphere in the main dining room was in one of an Italian setting in an outdoor café. Very nice.

I thought the food came faster than anticipated for preparing a salmon dish and thought it may have been prep earlier and than finished off. I asked for it to be medium and it was raw in the center. I sent it back but had to find the wait staff to do this. It came back acceptable but I was very disappointed in the whole dinning experience.

This is an amazing restaurant! The menu is a wonderful blend of traditional Italian foods and upscale fare fit for foodies. They use very fresh ingredients and everything is made from scratch - I especially recommend the charcuterie with delicious olives, and the homemade mozzarella cheese is great fried! The waiter, James, was extremely knowledgeable and had excellent timing skills as well as some great recommendations. If you save room you'll have to try the Opera cake - yum!
