This is a very nice place with plenty of food and drink choices. A concern of mine is: although it looks very Italian/Continental with wine bottles displayed all around the... More

Cicchetti has always been THE place for breakfast done really well, and great value. If the following ticks your box, then go...but change is not always such a good thing and Cicchetti would do well to return to the basics that have served them so well in the past: - sliced white supermarket bread for toast is nothing special -baked...

Brilliant tapas style dishes and delicious desserts. Our favourites were the truffle ravioli and the scallops. Expensive but worth tasting the freshness of the ingredients!

Visited yesterday with friends and this was our starting point. Friendly staff and a lovely venue which felt most welcoming. A good selection on the drinks menu and delicious olives and tapenade made for a great start to our day.

Stumbled upon this whilst waiting to go to a show. What a find! Great atmosphere, friendly staff in a nice restaurant. The best bit was certainly the food. Each dish was delicious. The pizza base was light and tasty, excellent ingredients. Each dish we chose was special. Can't wait to return!
