    Visiting Charlotte to take our UNCC daughter out to dinner after her work. We were looking for a place to talk,have good wine, and good food. Not a big meal, but special small dishes we could share. Found right were we wanted to be. Had a lovely night, gorgeous wine, fantastic Food, and good conversation. Nice Ambiance. Only draw back was a waiter we believed to be very new; however, two managers checked in for a brief conversation. We were well taken care of last night. Will definitely go back and recommend,

    Service very good, pleasant. Menu a bit different - which is something I look for - I look for menus that offer something a bit outside the box. Food was tasty and we liked everything we ordered. Would definitely go back.

    Very nice place that was quiet because of its uptown location. This place has a great little menu and was surprisingly very nice with decent portions for it being a tapas restaurant. Would definitely go back for a casual night out.

    We found ourselves in Charlotte for the night, the result of a canceled flight. I consulted Yelp, looking for a restaurant near our Uptown hotel. I found Cichetti, made a reservation, and am so glad I did. The menu is small, but innovative, and the food was very good. We sat at the bar and chatted with our server, Robin, who was a delight. We had three small plates, smoked salmon bruschetta, beef carpaccio with arugula and Parmesan, and a mussel “tin and chips.” This was literally a tin of smoked mussels with a side of kettle chips, not my favorite of the three choices, but innovative, as I said. The vibe was good, the drinks were just what we needed. Overall, a very nice experience.

    This was a fabulous experience. The vibe here is fun, beautiful and the food was delicious. We loved the small plates, especially before a theatre performance. The wine was fantastic too. Our server was excellent (Robin, I think) and she was professional and friendly. This will be our go to dining place for our uptown theatre performances. Highly recommend!

    Cicchetti has a nice selection of wines across different price points on shelves that you can pick yourself or have the waiter select based on your preference. Their food is small plates that cost ~$10 each. My favorites are the Pollo meatballs and the prosciutto brochetta as they are nice portions. The Yuka fries, were also very good, but a very small portion for the price.

    First time dining here as it was a convenient location prior to the event at Blumenthal. Validated parking was great as well as the half off wines on Tuesday. There is no outdoor signage, so it is easy to miss from the street, but we will definitely return as the small plates were wonderful.

    This was our second trip here in just 8 days. It's a great location and the food and service is excellent. I love their selection of small plates and the chicken meatballs are divine and the fried oysters as well. The menu is unique and it's great to be able to try different small plates and share. I also love the fact that they have a nice little wine list with lost of split (1/2) bottle selections.
