The meal and service was excellent, we had fettuccine cob Grannie and tortellini Michaelangelo and dry red house wine + dessert, bread pudding. Chris- Our server was well trained,good manners!Some others needed to be instructed how to keep their rears out of your face when serving the adjacent table. Our food was served and we consumed all in less than 1.45mins. This was to be a anniversary celebration for us, it's a beautiful place inside...needs a bit more cleaning of the decor. The wall we sat beside was full of pasta sauce.
We wondered why mangement, allowed one table of all females to howl not laugh but scream and howl like they were at a football stadium. Thus pretty much spoiled the atmosphere we expected for our special dinner. Overall, we will try this place again. For cost of the meal and tip...we expected management should be able to control "wild" patrons, regardless of the number at their table...it should be considered you may not get return patrons that out number the uncivilized and ill-mannered ones!

Went here for dinner one evening, since we were craving Italian. Excellent atmosphere, definitely family friendly. We were able to walk in and didn't have to wait during prime dinner hours on a Friday. I concur with others who say their food was served quickly, but again, it meant that we didn't have to wait during prime dinner hours on a Friday, so that does balance out. Our waitress was very friendly and joked with us, and I do not feel like she was rushing us.
We had bruschetta, and I had shells with pesto and sun dried tomatoes. Both were excellent.

This was our first visit to Osteria Cicchetti. We stopped with family from out of state and were pleasantly surprised. The Flounder Piccata was delish with a choice of over spinach or a bed of pasta. The only negative was service that was too fast! Soups was served and before the first taste, the main course arrived. Will definitely give it another try.

We have dined here several times in the past and were expecting a nice, relaxed meal. That did not happen. The restaurant was not crowded but you would not have known that by the speed of our dinner. The salad was delivered right after our drinks and the entree was delivered before the salad and 1/2 of the drink had been consumed. We were in and out in under 30 minutes!! I tried to get our server to slow down but that did not occur. My linguine with red clam sauce has a slight citrus taste and was not as good as usual. I will need to wait a while before I return.

We were shown a small table near the front but moved to the back. Only about half full so it is hard to imagine that thought process.
The food was delicious but we were rushed into our main course. There was little room to set it down as we had our salads.
The waitress was great but the server from the kitchen looked totally unconcerned and bored by it all.

Thank Doubledeacon
