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.

Server kept referring to me as her friend. Food was nothing special veal was tough clam sauce tasted like lemon. Entrees came out while we were still eating our appitzers had to send them back and our server did not know that we sent them back.

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.

My husband and I very much enjoyed our dinner, drinks and dessert to celebrate my birthday. Everything tasted great, service was perfect and the prices were reasonable. I highly recommend the chocolate coconut gelato as well! Yum!
