Wonderful Italian with a menu to fit all tastes

We went to Osteria Cicchetti with another couple who have been there many times. The food was terrific with the BEST veal piccata I have ever had. Reservations necessary and a stop not to miss in the Wilmington area.

Came for dinner left extremely unsatisfied. Ordered scallops and the first time they were raw. They apologized and brought me another dinner and they were raw. Everyone in our group were finished with their dinner when they came back with the third plate of cold and raw scallops. The manager came and said he'd comp my meal. What meal was... More

I was visiting several friends and we wanted to meet for dinner. It was raining and they suggested we meet here as it was a convenient location. It was my first time dining at Osteria Cicchetti, an Italian restaurant which my friends call OC, but I will be back. I asked the waiter what the name means and he said... More

Great, friendly service, nice atmosphere, very good value, ok food. I ordered the lasagna (12). I would have preferred marinara sauce instead of the vodka sauce that it came with but it was ok. My wife had the scallops over grilled vegetables (19). She loved the vegetable and liked the scallops. In this overpriced town, it's nice to be able... More

Had a glass of wine at the bar as we waited for our table. It was busy, but to me that's the sign of a delicious restaurant. The restaurant is nicely decorated, but the food is the rockstar! Absolutely no complaints, can't wait to go back!

I had the feeling this place would be great when I ran in to my Aunt who is Italian there (she's a local and I was visiting but just picked the place randomly because it was close to my hotel). I usually forego bread,but it was too good to pass up. My family members had pasta and they said it... More

OC uses a familiar Italian Restaurant formula: keep it the same. Now some people don't like that. But if you do, this is the place for you. Whether we've come here for a quick drink at the bar, a full dining experience, or after-dinner drink and dessert, our experience has always been extremely pleasant. We especially enjoy the professional servers... More

Always my first choice when in the Mayfaire area. Excellent atmosphere, excellent service and delicious, comfort food. The chopped salad with sopressata and the stagioni pizza are outstanding. I am also particularly fond of the lingine with white clam sauce and the tasty meatballs. Business or personal...OC's never lets me down. It is also a nice spot for a glass... More

We decided to order our meal for take out recently and were sorely disappointed. Two of us ordered lasagna with salads. Two of us ordered a different pasta dishes, which were average at best. The lasagna was dry and tasteless. If they had added sauce, that might have helped. Our salads were pitiful, certainly not made fresh or with romaine... More

Really disappointed - made reservations for our family dinner - when we arrived the hostess informed us they just seated 4 walk in tables and now we would have to wait. The bar was full so no space to sit for drink - we left - and it did not effect them one bit!!!
